“The best b & b in scicily”
Reviewed 30 September 2012

We had a much needed break in this gorgeous re furbished odl farmhouse. Brita & Catarina were so very welcoming they were friendly, helpful, and couldnt do enough for you, so peaceful, beautiful views especially at breakfast, which was slightly different each day. The cleanest lovliest room, could not ask for more. We hope to go back, with a car, and explore some more. The whole experience of staying with them we feel cannot be beaten. Wonderful.. wonderful.. wonderful....... THANK YOU,

Our recent stay was so relaxing and happy.
We have told all our friends and family that they must go, and we will certainly return.
I looked at the website again this morning, while the rain poured down relentlessly for the 4th month in the UK, and thought “I wish I was back on the veranda enjoying a delicious breakfast and looking over the mountains”.
The rooms and breakfast were just perfect, and all the hidden extras were much appreciated, e.g. lifts to/from town, use of the PC, torch hire, bird-book hire – to name but a few.

Room Tip: All 4 rooms are special, but the first one, with the side window, is the best.

Having heard of Casale Praia from an acquaintance in Finland, we decided to spend our two-week vacation there, in April-May of 2012.

Our expectations were rather high, but what we got was so much more! The surrounding scenery around the house is breathtaking, not to mention the flowers so lovingly tended by Brita and Caterina.

Your day in Casale Praia starts with a delicious, abundant breakfast served by the hostess herself. After that, you can take a 15-minute walk to the center of Letojanni which has good bus and train connections to both Messina and Catania directions.

Our room was very comfortable and always impeccably clean.

Brita's knowledge about the history and nature of Sicily is astounding and definitely exceeds that of most of the aboriginals, so when asking the right question, you should be prepared for a small-scale lecture! :)

The staff also included Branca the Dog and Polly the Cat whose unconditional friendliness made our stay just purrrrr-fect! :)

Thank you and hope to see you soon again!

Just a 10 minute walk from the centre of Letojanni, this place is a real find. The mother and daughter team have lovingly converted the old family stables into rooms of a very high standard and excellent taste. They are clean and more than comfortable. I slept incredibly well.
Views of the mountains and sea amongst fruit trees and beautifully tended flowers provide an idylic and relaxing atmosphere. The horse, chickens, dog and cat add yet more charm. My daughter, Amelie was absolutely delighted by their company.
Breakfast was a delicious combo of freshly baked bread and cake, biscuits, yoghurt, boiled eggs (from the chickens!), cold meats and cheeses, fruit and freshly squeezed orange juice (from the garden!) and strong Italian coffee.
Both women are very hospitable, great company and incredibly knowledgable about the local mountains and volcanoes. They will happily answer any questions and point you in the right direction for a walk or hike.
Overall, Casale Praia is great for singles, couples and families. Your stay here cannot fail to be anything less than perfect and you will leave with an overwhelming desire to come back again as soon as possible.

Thank you and see you soon!

Casale Praia is wonderful, peaceful & clean. Britta & her daughter Caterina are very helpful and their hospitality is over the top! Breakfast was excellent thanks to Britta ~ I really enjoyed having my breakfast outside on the beautiful terrace. My daughter still talks about the dog Branca & Bobbo (the lovely little kitten) which spent a lof of time playing with her... She misses them a lot so I have an excuse to visit this place again!! he he..

We have been there last June for 8 days and I must say that we had a wonderful time. The B&B is well located just outside the small town of Letojanni few hundred meters from the sea. The position is quite strategic with the highway and the SS114 very close at hand so that we could easily get to any place of interest (Taormina, the etna volcano, acireale, Forza d’agro, Catania just to name a few..)
The rooms are very clean with a comfortable and wide bathroom and equipped with air-conditioned. However, thanks to the stonewall we never had to use it and the room was pleasantly chill even in the hot Sicilian summer!
But I think the strong points of this B&B is the hospitality of Britta, never in short of smiles and valuable tips, and the exquisite breakfasts with a wide choice of fresh croissants, jams, juices, handmade cakes and the like (we had continental breakfasts but salty foods were also available).
All in all, we had a great time at Casale Praia and will get there again if we get the chance to drop by those places.

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!
