Casa Famiani
Ranked #2 of 9 Letojanni B&B and Inns
Reviewed 30 September 2013

Don´t waste your time looking for accommodation in Taormina and come to Letojanni, a small "Town" in front of the beach just a few minutes driving from Taormina.

We were lucky to find this B&B and his nice owner Ignazio when were driving around late night without a booking looking for a place to stay. Ignazio kindly showed us a nice room for a reasonable price. The next day in the morning , Ignazio was at the restaurant taking care of the costumers as always, and we asked him about the possibility of renting a kayak because it seems it wasn´t very popular around but he managed to find one for us.

In conclusion: For giving us a nice place, great customer service and the lifeguard kayak :) our host Ignazio deserves a 5.

Casa Famiani is a lovely family run B&B by the beach in Letojanni. Firstly Ignazio was very welcomming. Our room was clean, with a balcony and a nice bathroom. It is beside the beach and breakfast is had in their restaurant on the beach. It's only a one minute walk and is a beautiful setting having breakfast on the beach.

Letojanni is a short bus or taxi trip to Taormina (bus is much cheaper). It's nice if you are looking for a quite seaside village next to busier Taormina. There is also a train station here which is useful to access other parts of the Island.

I think that this place has such a high rating on trip advisor as it does not try and be anything that is isn't. It is no on the Main Street to the beach but is just off a corner which means you have ocean views from your balcony but is quiet from the small amount of traffic on the front. The owner is really friendly. They should work a bit harder on the breakfast but is good for Italian standards so the coffee is great and the food is limited. I would recommend. Have spent 10days here and it is a great place. Just watch out for the jellyfish.

We wanted to spend time in Taormina but we also wanted to explore around the Island too. Casa Famiani was ideally suited to our needs, providing easy access to Taormina and hassle-free street parking for the hired car. Letojanni has plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from, within easy walking distance, with some actually on the beach. Also there are two supermarkets and a post office close by. We found the hotel clean and bright, and very quiet, which we appreciated. We were on the first floor and our room had a balcony with side view to the sea, which was a bonus.Ignatius was charming and very helpful with ideas for places to visit. We had a very relaxing week here and wouldn't hesitate in recommending this hotel to others.Everything was as described in the hotel write-up.

We stayed in Casa Famiani in the last 4 days of September.The sea is as close to the hotel as you would only dream. In the morning you can walk barefoot on the beach and swim before breakfast. The owner Ignazio is really nice. He gives useful information about where to go and what to see. The breakfast and especially the coffee he makes are very good. The rooms, though not so large, are very clean, cosy and have everything you may need for your comfort including delightful lunch with local products and fruits on the spacious balcony with a side sea view. There are several food markets nearby. We were worried about parking, but there was never any problem to park the car just nearby, within the sight from the balcony.

Room Tip: there is no lift

We spent 10 days in Letojanni in September and stayed with Ignazio in Casa Famiani. The location is ideal, you have the peace of a smaller resort which isn't over commercialised with easy access to Taormina, Giardini Naxos etc. Casa Famiani was clean, every second day linen and towels changed, the bed was more comfortable than in some 4* hotels i'v stayed in, breakfast was adequate but it was the fresh fruit, oranges picked from Ignazios mothers orchard, that was the highlight. Ignazio is very knowledgeable on anything to do with the local area and we found his advise invaluable. Bus and train 5 minutes from B & B. We fell in love with the area and plan to return next year and stay in the apartment at Casa Famiani .

Room Tip: We were on the top floor which was reached by climbing 52 steps, request a room lower down if your n...
