The breakfast is perfect, very Sicilian, the owner is very hospitable and helpful. Very close to the beach, the room can also see the sea.

It was an unforgettable time!
Everything was just amazing :) Aldo is a great cook and a perfect host. We really enjoyed our stay at his cozy and beautiful villa!

Here you will meet the most friendly and helpful host ever! Aldo is a former chef, and makes you dinner on request. We absolutely recommend that you do that. We got a 3 course meal of delicious food and it was exciting to not know what the next course would be. He also gives great tips for activities and restaurants. Rooms are clean and comfortable and the location is perfect for exploring the surrounding areas. There is some traffic noise from the road, but that's Italy.

Great stage in Taormina 😀
Everything was good perhaps just Wi-Fi quality to improve in the rooms
Aldo is very carefully for us and give a lot of very accurate and valuable advices for visits or restaurants in the area. Breakfast is homemade and with various food (eggs, salami, ham, mozzarella, cheese, cakes, marmelades, fresh juices...) Grazie mile Aldo for your welcome!!

Sicilian hospitality at its best. Aldo and his family made us feel like home from the moment we arrived. His tips for places to visit in the area were excellent, and the location of Villa Schiticchiu is perfect to see Taormina, Mazzaro and Castelmola. We really enjoyed our time there and would recommend it to any couple or family.

Liked everything! Close to the beaches, great connection to Taormina centre cause of the cable way going up and down, extra-nice staff, run by a really nice family, very good food, very sicilian-liked villa etc. Definately recommend for people looking for Sicilian experience! (I took the single room, called Ulisse)

It was the best place which we could imagine for our holidays in Taormina!
We loved everything! There was no single thing which we could complain for.
Villa Schiticchiu was the best choice which we could make. Place was magical, garden with lemon trees and herbs was perfect for having a breakfast or diner. Room was really nice with very interesting furnitures - pure Sicilian style, it was also clean and convenient (big and comfortable bed!). Bathroom was big and clean too. We had a beautiful view from our room - directly on the sea :-) localization of this Villa is really good as is very close to Taormina city center (you can take a cable car or take a really nice walk) but from the other hand is far enough to relax within the nature, away from the people and city noises. It is also close to Letojanni - we took a 30 minutes walk along the beach. All these were good but the real star of this place is host Aldo! He was amazing, he made fabolous breakfast (you need to know that Also is a chef and he is cooking since many years), if you like you can order a diner, we did it and it was the best meal which we had in Sicily! Fresh seafood, delicious pasta, great wine and much more! Great passion was visible in every dish and every word he said about it, each dish and each ingredient had story, similar like all furnitures or trees in this nice Villa. It was amazing to hear all these stories and experience all these feelings. If you want to feel real Sicily you should go to this Villa. Aldo gave us also many tips what is worth to see around and where we can eat nice food. He also took us from the train station when we were arriving to Taormina and gave a lift to bus station when we were leaving Villa, everything free of charge.

Aldo the host was really welcoming and friendly. He cooked us a delicious and reasonably priced dinner each of the three evenings we stayed with him. The breakfasts were also lovely. The location is outside of Taormina by the sea but Taormina is easily accessible by short walk and cable car.

Nothing at all.
My wife and I chose this accommodation for our 40th wedding anniversary which we celebrated with Aldo's extremely friendly family at a special lunch he prepared for us. It was a wonderful gesture from him and a day we will never forget. We found Aldo to be the perfect host, always willing to help us and provide information about sightseeing and restaurants. He even took us out in his car for 2-3 hours on two separate days to visit some very interesting sights and we found his company very warm and friendly as well as being very informative. The accommodation is of a good standard and is perfectly located near some good restaurants and beaches and the cable car to Taormina old town. Aldo prepared breakfasts for us of superb quality and provided gluten free bread and cereals for my wife who is Coeliac. Most of the nearby restaurants also provided gluten free meals. We cannot praise Aldo highly enough for the warmth of his welcome, his personality and the excellent service he provides. We arrived as guests and we left as good friends. We will return!

Beautiful B&B with an exceptional host Aldo! Highly recommended.
Wonderful B&B located in an excellent position with easy walking access to Taormina via cable car. We were allocated a comfortable room with beautiful sea views from the terrace on the top floor. However what really makes this accommodation so special is host Aldo. What a charming, friendly and welcoming gentleman. Aldo is an excellent chef and we thoroughly enjoyed the 4 course meal he prepared for us one evening and the wonderful in house produced wine, olive oil and marmalade.

Excellent hosts! Could not fault them - extremely warm welcome, informative about local area, attentive, great breakfast, comfortable room, very clean. The location is wonderful, just steps from the beach, lots of restaurants within walking distance, cable car up to Taormina central 5 mins walk away. Would highly recommend!

Most hospitable host!
The shower curtain is so long that it drapes to the floor and may block the drain, when you don't notice it.
Aldo is super friendly and courteous. He spoilt us with drinks on arrival and delicious breakfast with homemade ham and marmalade. He is more than happy to provide detailed sightseeing tips and restaurant recommendations. Our son was overjoyed to have his own room next to ours. Excellent!

I couldn’t say enough great things about B&B Schiticchiu! Aldo is an incredible host. The location is excellent with the beach across the street and a short walk from the lift up to Taormina. Be sure to ask him for recommendations as he will steer you in the right direction surely. I only wish I could have stayed longer!

Good option near the beach
Everything was perfect besides location- it is on the main road, very noisy to us
The owner is just an amazing person, so helpful! Ready to assist with everything you need, without hesitation. Also the rooms have a beautiful view and they are cozy and well preserved. The breakfast was plentifull and tasty. Also really close to the beach..
