Casale Praia
Ranked #6 of 9 Letojanni B&B and Inns
Reviewed 27 June 2011

If you look for a payable room outside of Taormina this is a good place to stay. The room is big but a little dark and every room has a little terrace with a table two chairs and you can use the sud beds and the outside fridge. Each room has a shower bathroom. The picture shows unfortunately only two thirds of the truth! It lreflects what is the charme of the house and its owner - just lovely, however the really beautiful house and garden is situated somehow inside an industry area. Over the day there was some noise but not in the night. As it is quite a walk from Letojanni, which itself is not worth to see, this is a place you better go by car. You can park easily on the premises! A very big praise goes to the lovely host for the home made breakfast with fresh juice, beautiful coffee, good bread, hand made marmelade and regional salami and cheese!!!!!!!! The best breakfast we had in 8 accomodations on Sicily! Try it out!

we wanted to spend only two nights in casale praia but after getting to know the nice owners and enjoying the time in the bed and breakfast we spontanously extended our stay.

we liked our room very much. it was full of light and we had a gorgious view of the mountain. in front of our room we spent plenty of time chilling, enjoying the landscape and reading books. you really feel to be close to nature. britta, the owner, does a great job with the garden. the bed in the room was very comfortable.

the breakfast was exceptionally good. britta served a big variety of bread, cheeses, ham, home made jams and fresh juices.

the owners britta and her daughter caterina are very helpful and very friendly people. caterina's son is a lovely toddler and our kids had a lot of fun with him. this bed a breakfast is a lovely place for young families as well for people who want to relax or to be close to Taormina.

spending our time in sicily in three different places we have to admit that casale praia was the best. we wish britta, caterina & samy all the best and we hope to see you again in your place.

Wonderful location into a natural paradise. The rooms are really comfortable and clean. The breakfast are very tipical and the owners are so kinds and helpfuls. I think is a good situation to explore west side of Sicily, and its location is suitable to excursionism.
I'll hope to come back...........................................................................................................

We stayed for two night and we got a very good advice from Brita about our excursions to Taormina and Etna. Our room was very comfortable, with a big batheroom.
The breakfast was rich, with lots to choose from.
Thanks Brita for all your help.

An excellent homepage catched my eyes with wonderful photos of the place. Is this real or are they artificial improved? No, it is as beautiful as the photos show! Very nice rooms, elegant furnishings - not overloaded, very clean bathroom, a/c and no television, thanks a lot!

The breakfast is rich and tasty, salty and sweet as you like, with fresh bread and rolls, juice, yogurt – everything you need for a fresh start in the morning. And I received extra arrangements are possible, e.g. because of early uprise: I received small

From Casale Praia you can walk to the beach (15 min.), make a trekking tour, e.g. the Sentiero Forza d’Agro-Taormina, or catch the bus/train for other directions. And returning from Letojanni by foot in darkness was never ever a security problem!

Don’t be irritated: at first sight the surroundigs of Casale Praia seem a bit shabby, but Brita and her family, including Sami, Branca and the cat outweigh the somewhat strange neighbourhood. And sitting in the porch or on the breakfast terrace your only see the fondly planted garden, olive trees and the mountains behind the house.

The transfer from train station which I received might be a normal service, the spontaneous rescue from Letojanni during thunderstorm show the remarkable caring gesture of Casale Praia! Brita creates a homely atmosphere and gives a lot of information about walking and trekking, not only around Letojanni.

I can greatly recommend this lovely place and will come back myself!

I am so convinced that this is one of the best B&B in Sicily. I stayed just for a night because we already booked the next day hotel. If not, certainly we would stay there more. This is a family business B&B, and all family menbers are so kind and good at various languages. Anyone who stay there can get lots of tourist imformation you need.

The room was so clean and very italian style. It might be the one you want to experience in Sicily. Breakfast was good, especially with very nice view.

It could be slight not easy to find the location, but they must be inform carefully. Actually, having driven from Cefalu to B&B, they texted and called more than five times even in very late time. I really appreciate it, and also using the kitchen in that night.

I remember there are so clever cat and friendly dog, and also you might see a horse in the house. If I go to Sicily next, I am sure of being there for a long time. I really hope.

Fantastic!!!! That’s the word which comes into the mind, when we remember the vacations in Casale Praia. We enjoy all 10 days we spent there. Hospitable owners, quite place, splendid views, tasty food… and most of all the - dog Branca. She spend with us each evening, her charm and attraction made the stars shine brighter 
Frankly speaking that’s the ideal place for those, who’d like to stay not far away from the seaside (just 5 minutes car ride), nearby to the mountains and countryside and for ve-e-ery affordable price.
Our owners were always ready to help us with the info and advise, concerning our travel routes. And in the end of out trip we had a chance to enjoy the real Sicily party in they company. Meanwhile, when we wish, we could feel ourselves in this B&B like being on the uninhabited island 
Hopefully we could visit this place once more again!
