Hi, I'm an entrepreneur in tourism owner of the bed and breakfast Palazzo Giovanni.

I consider myself an 'artisan tourism. Every day I'm in touch with my friends-customers, I am delighted to create different routes according to their needs and participate with them in order to get to know the land in all its particularity': history, art, culture, colors and perfumes. I really love traveling, staying in contact with people, and when I travel I always try to get to know the local people in order to understand their cultures. Money, success, are important, but for me 'human relations must have a place in my life. Relazionandomi with my clients, each of them send me their travel experiences, and their cultures, and all this makes me 'conscious of' importance of human relationships. Through this cultural exchange is not indifferent, I enrich my person, my soul. I consider myself lucky for all of this, make my life something wonderful, I must say thank you to everyone and it's why I dedicate myself to them with love. To me the word tourism and 'something special, and' hospitality '.

The essential and 'leave a taste, an' emotion. Owner must be a guide as well as offer attractive rooms, suggest routes, book tickets and reserve restaurants. It 'important to the network of personal relationships to offer customers. One of the new frontiers of tourism, and 'that of being in love, travel and' 'experience to remember.

It is a wonderful place to stay. A real Palazzo, perfect! The owner Silvio and his wife are very friendly and helpful. They really want to make it a perfect stay for their guests - and they are successful! The rooms are clean, the breakfast is delicious and Silvio helps with a lot of informations. The place is perfect to explore Catania, Etna, Taormina and a lot of interesting places in the surrounding.

L'endroit est loin de tout et on peut s'en éloigner qùen voiture. Il n'y a rien à faire sur place. C'est entouré de magnifiques plantations de citronniers mais elles sont toutes grillagées et on ne peut pas s'y promener. Le seul endroit pour se promener sont les petites routes asphaltées, sans trottoir, sur lesquelles il faut faire très attention aux voitures. Le bord de mer de Stazzo n'a pas de charme, une large bande de blocs rocheux sépare la route de la mer, on ne peut donc pas réellement s'approcher de la mer. Le village du bord de mer n'a aucun intérêt. Cette adresse est parfaite pour y passer une nuit ou deux, le temps de faire étape pour un trekking sur l'Etna. Nous y sommes restées toute une semaine, ce qui est beaucoup trop long, car il n'y a rien à faire sur place, et on est obligé de prendre la voiture ne serait-ce que pour aller dîner dans un endroit agréable (les restaurants du village sont moyens). Le petit-déjeuner est copieux et pris sur une toiture-terrasse avec une belle vue sur l'Etna. La seule déception, c'est que les boissons chaudes n'étaient pas à la hauteur de la qualité de l'endroit. On se les procurait auprès de ce genre de "machine à café", qui ne débite que des cafés insipides et de l'eau tiède pour le thé. Ce fut vraiment dommage car en-dehors des boissons le petit-déjeuner était excellent. Les draps de bains, dont le changement était prévu deux fois par semaine, n'ont pas été changés. Au bout de 4 nuits, mon amie a déposé son drap de bains au sol pour le faire changer. Le soir même, nous avons retrouvé le même drap de bains sale qui avait traîné au sol, à nouveau accroché sur la patère, par-dessus le mien ! Bien-évidemment, nous sommes allées trouver les propriétaires pour réclamer des draps de bain frais, et nous les avons reçus, mais n'est-il pas choquant de ne pas changer un drap de bains jeté au sol, après 4 nuits sur place lorsque le règlement nous informe que les draps de bains sont changés deux fois par semaine ? Compte tenu du tarif de ce B&B, ce genre de problème ne devrait pas se poser.

The answer from the host:
Bonjour et merci beaucoup pour le temps passé dans votre avis. En la remerciant cependant, je lui demande également de s’identifier, même en privé. Cela me fâche de répondre parce que je crois fermement au droit de chacun de pouvoir s'exprimer, mais tout doit être constructif et surtout réaliste. Comme vous le savez, nous vivons d’examens et de satisfaction du client, c’est la première chose à faire pour obtenir de bons résultats et examiner ceux qui l’ont précédé. Je pense que nous avons fait un travail remarquable. Les choses qùil écrit sont aussi douteuses que de remonter à des raisons d'insatisfaction qui peuvent aussi m'aider à faire mieux à l'avenir également parce que je suis le propriétaire et que je suis toujours avec mes clients pour les aider et leur donner une expérience, si quelque chose qui pourrait conduirait à un examen comme celui-ci, je l’aurais remarqué et au moins j’aurais essayé de faire quelque chose. Les raisons pour lesquelles je dis cela et je vous serais reconnaissant si vous pouviez me montrer, ainsi qu’à d’autres clients éventuels, le contraire, sont les suivantes. et ceci parce que je n'aime pas spéculer ou tricher et je n'en ai pas besoin. Je recherche l'expérience d'accueil, j'aime ce travail et je ne le fais pas pour de l'argent, Je suis disposé à faire d'autres comparaisons constructives si vous avez le temps et l'envie de le faire, mais j'espère que vous aurez une identification claire de votre réservation et du problème que vous avez trouvé qui justifie le mauvais jugement que vous nous avez donné. Cela dit, j'espère qùà l'avenir, si vous le souhaitez, vous pourrez revenir ici et changer complètement d'avis. Aurevoir à vous. Silvio et Alessandra.

Seul petit bémol: il serait utile de préciser qu'une des chambres a une salle de bains privative mais qùil faut traverser un couloir pour s'y rendre.

Ho soggiornato al B&B Palazzo Giovanni con mia moglie e mio figlio e siamo stati veramente bene. Posizione tranquilla ma ideale per ogni tipo di escursione, parcheggio privato, stanze belle, pulite e ottima colazione su terrazzo panoramico. Silvio e sua moglie fanno il loro lavoro con passione ed attenzione per i loro ospiti. I consigli su dove andare, dove mangiare, dove parcheggiare cosa vedere rendono il soggiorno ancora più piacevole. Abbiamo già consigliato la struttura ad amici, sicuri di indirizzarli nel posto giusto per visitare la parte est della Sicilia.
