Casa Turchetti

Taormina, Messina
Bed & Breakfast

Catch your breath on the terrace of this supremely comfortable townhouse, smouldering Etna to your right and a sparkling azure sweep ahead


6 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 – 4


Turn back the clock a hundred or so years and you would have heard Puccini or Vivaldi resounding from deep within this 19th-century townhouse. The music academy is no more, but Casa Turchetti has not let go of its musical past: you’ll spot the little lyre, the B&B’s motif, dotted all over the place. Cheerful hosts Pino and Francesca are understandably proud of their restoration and will be as hands on or off as you want. Big bedrooms are elegant and supremely comfortable: soft yellow walls, generous red swags at balconied windows, marble floors that sparkle, embroidered white linen on antique beds. Bathrooms are designed for serious grooming; you’ll want to spend far longer than necessary in here, wrapped in a fluffy towel or relaxed under a rain shower. Breakfasts are a talking point – the guest book is heaped with praise. Catch your breath on the rooftop terrace: the Greek amphitheatre to your left, smouldering Etna to your right, the uninterrupted sweep of blue straight ahead, the hum of Taormina just below. All without having to step foot outside the door.
