Best Countryside & Mountains in Taormina
Local Recommendations from our My Guide Sicily team
Sicilian farms, wineries & country hotels are the most enchanting places, offering tranquil and rural accommodation. They often come with many activities including cooking lessons, horse-riding or grape picking.
Some Agriturismos are working farms, others not any more. Country hotels are mostly housed in ancient rural buildings and hamlets, boasting a unique atmosphere and some of them are on the luxurious side. All of them offer breakfast with often homemade jams and cakes. Furnishings and room-equipments range from simple to exclusive, from Sicilian country style to rural-chic. You'll find agriturismos featuring excellent restaurants, outdoor pool, tennis courts and reception halls, and others with mini-zoo and rustic furnishings, all of them immersed in orchards and olive groves. This is our choice of rural accommodations not only for nature lovers and families with children, but also for people who want to experience Sicilian country life, local traditions and customs. Prices start around 50 euros per room, but you may come across some places requiring 3 nights stay minimum, so do check in advance. Most rooms and apartments are not luxurious, but the hospitality and the welcome certainly is!
