Our hotel is a historic residence located in the main square of Letojanni, "Piazza Durante" close to the sea, a stone's throw from Taormina and Giardini Naxos, with excellent connections also with the rest of the island. The structure has 38 rooms, of which 6 are singles, some triple and quadruple rooms. We have a conference room for around 120 people, 2 other smaller meeting rooms, a beautiful panoramic terrace on the second floor overlooking both Piazza Durante and the sea, with the plan to open a Roof Garden here next summer , where you can taste the most imaginative aperitifs and listen to beautiful live music. In the palace there is also a church, where it is possible to say mass, a service much requested by
family or religious groups who often gather here for a pleasant holiday The building was built at the end of the 19th century by prof. Francesco Durante, internationally renowned surgeon and senator of the kingdom of Italy with Francesco Crispi, who retired here to spend the last years of his life in the country that gave him birth. After his death the building was sold to the "Missionaries of the Sacred Heart of Jesus" who they first established an orphanage, and at the beginning of 2000 opened the home for holidays. William Chiechio, manager of the hotel, has been a guest of the structure together with his family since 2001, and in 2019 he was asked to take it over.


Each room is equipped with private bathroom, TV, mini fridge, air conditioning, free WI FI and hairdryer. Last year all the rooms were renovated, all the beds were changed and the mattresses replaced with Simmons ones, and new furniture was introduced in several rooms that required it.
