Edward & Carolyn

This is an excellent hotel tucked away in a very pleasant small town close to Etna and the coast. The Hotel was very clean and tidy and well maintained by very polite and friendly staff. Lots of large and well cared for potted plants which gave a pleasant ambiance. The front door opens direct onto the street and there was a bit of traffic noise but it did not disturb us. Our room was very comfortable - reasonably basic but well furnished with air conditioning that worked perfectly. A small but nice bathroom - shower, bidet, basin, wc, hairdryer etc., all tiled with mosaic pattern tiles. Plenty of towels etc. We had decided to opt for half board and were glad that we did - restaurant menu was not extensive but the food was excellent - well cooked local food and recipes which we greatly enjoyed. The waiter knew his local wines well and suggested ones worth trying and every bottle was a treat, and not expensive. There is a swimming pool on the roof with decking, sun loungers and a bar (which was closed when we were there as hotel was very quiet). Wonderful views of the area from the pool area. The location is also a good one - plenty to see and do within driving distance and the scenery around the town is fantastic - steep mountains, covered in greenery, runined mountain top castles, narrow paved streets, an amazing river and lots of twisting mountain roads to explore with constantly changing scenery and lots of wild life - saw foxes, owls, wild goats, lizards etc. and the biggest toad I have seen outise a zoo. Not far away from Etna which can be seen from the roads into Francavilla Really enjoyed our stay and will definitely go back to this hotel. Its not the Ritz but its a very good unpretensious hotel.

very pleasant

We arrived at the hotel at 1.30am the proprietor kindly waited up for us.All the staff were very helpful and even sorted out our lost luggage with the airport.The accomodation was very clean and ample sized bedrooms.Food was excellent as we were staying on half board basis.The hotel is ideally situated for visiting Taormina,Etna and is well situated for exploring the countryside.There were a good mix of nationalities staying at the hotel and all seemed to enjoy the hotel as we did.Would have no hesitation on returning to this hotel again.

Review of 'D'Orange D'Alcantara'

Friendly staff and excellent food. Rooms were large and comfortable. A quiet, family run hotel on the tourist-free north side of Mt Etna. Staff spoke just enough English to sort out any problems without it feeling like a hotel for foreigners. Most of the other guests were Italian. An excellent base for walking and cycling. The town of Francavilla has plenty of small shops, including a salumeria making delicious sandwiches for lunch. Hotel has a swimming pool, though we didn't use it as we were out enjoying the fantastic countryside all day...
