    Superb and unusual

    This is one of the loveliest most atmospheric places I have ever stayed. Every room is unique and rich with character and distinctive, artful decor. The views of the sea and Mt. Etna are beyond stunning: the volcano seemed to loom just beyond the terrace of my room. The staff was warm and welcoming, the breakfast excellent, and the location within Taormina convenient to everything. The brief tour of the villa is extremely interesting; all sorts of unusual guests have stayed there duringit's earlier incarnation as a private villa. I will happily return whenever I have the opportunity.

    It is real great and fantastic stay in Taormina. A view from our room is beyond description. Hospitality of the staffs were more than family. So touched. Recommended for anyone over age 30. For young people, wait until reaching age 30 at least. Thank you

    History lesson at Casa Cuseni

    Loved staying in a Casa with so much history. Really loved staying in the William Faulkner room, as he is a neighbor from Oxford, Mississippi. Great old home. Lot of restoration being done with space and gardens being worked on! Gardens were extensive and wonderfully put in by Kitson, the original English owner

    Casa Cusemi

    Absolutely stunning views and gardens. Staff was extremely helpful and cheerful. Large rooms and balconies. On the side of a hill over the town, so some fitness is required as there are steps and no elevator. Part Museum, Greta Garbo, Picasso, others stayed here. Older hotel. Trying to find it could be difficult as typewritten name over door buzzer is only sign. Signs in town point you in the right direction though and drivers know where it’s at.

    Taormina historic villa

    We stayed in the Greta Garbo suite at Casa Cuseni as a family of three. Plenty of room, character and lovely veranda with stunning view of Mt Etna, sea and garden. New shower and bathroom. Short walk downhill to town. We were very pleased and comfortable!

    The property has a fascinating history, is designated a National Monument, and delivers stunning views of Mount Etna and the sea from its hillside location. The staff are knowledgeable and proud of the Heritage as well as friendly & helpful. It’s a really cool place to stay and if we ever return to Taormina we would certainly stay there again.

    Highlight of my trip to Sicily

    Casa Cuseni was the highlight of my trip to Sicily. I stayed in the Daphne Phelps room which is absolutely stunning. The room has the most beautiful light and views. The original floors and furniture are gorgeous and I loved all of the original artwork in the room. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom is clean with a modern shower. The breakfasts were fantastic, and all of the staff were friendly, kind, and helpful. I did the museum tour with Maria and loved all of the art, artifacts, and stories about the home and the garden. This is such a special place, I hope to be able to stay here again.
