The B & B Mastrazzi is situated in an enviable location. It sits on the promenade in front of Riposto touristic port Marina di Riposto  with such stunning views that have to be seen to be believed the moment you step outside your room. We are located between Catania and Taormina, a few meters from the sea, near the beach of Fondachello and rocks of Torre Archirafi. You will be within walking distance of all essential services for those on vacation: bus stop-shop, pharmacy, hospital, doctors surgery, car rental, bars and restaurants, coffee shops, ice-cream parlour, supermarkets. A traditional Sicilian bakery is just across the road with all sorts of freshly baked sweet & savoury breads & goodies.

It takes just a few minutes to reach the historic city of Riposto (historic Cathedral) and Giarre (a large town which is equipped with every possible amenity – 15 minutes by foot or 5 minutes by car), less than half an hour to get to nearby stunning Taormina (please google Taormina and its breathtaking sights & architecture), Giardini Naxos (sea-side resort), Acireale and Catania’s historic City (also on the coast). It will take you 40 minutes to climb Mount Etna and only an hour to get to Syracuse. There is a train station in Giarre with regular trains so you can access all cities daily.

The nearest airport is the airport of Catania Internzionale Fontarossa Vincenzo Bellini (approximately 40 km), or Comiso (1 hour and half).
