My name is Karen Cacopardo, I have been in the hospitality industry for 20 years in the UK, In 2007 I married my husband Diego and we came to live in Sicily. We renovated and created The Lemon Tree and also provide a wedding planning service for couples who wish to marry in Taormina.

Prior to moving to Sicily my husband and I worked in different industries and long hours thus not having much quality time together, we now run our own business in 300 days of sunshine per year and both enjoy a healthier lifestyle and meeting people from all walks of life.

We pride ourselves on offering a 5 star service, my husband was born in Taormina and is fluently bilingual, he has a wealth of local knowledge, information and contacts. We can oganise excursions, book restaurants, organise Sicilian cookery classes and symbolic wedding church services. We also offer a shuttle service to and from The Lemon Tree. We are generally around to make sure our guests have a fantastic holiday.

A GREAT PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we arrived, Karen and Diego went out of their way to help us feel at home. Our flight was delayed, but Karen still met us at the local train station to guide us to the villa in the middle of the night. The location was perfect with its amazing views and easy access to Taormina. Karen was able to recommend to us the best places to eat and advised us on the best way to see the tourist attractions that we wanted to see. Thanks to Karen, we had the most amazing food that we would never have found had she not recommended them. The apartment itself was clean and tidy and had everything that you could need during your stay. The swimming pool was perfect for cooling down after relaxing in the sun.
Overall, we would (and have) recommend to friends that this is the ideal place to stay on a trip to Sicily.

WOULD DEFINITELY RETURN!

  • 4 of 5
We spent more than 2 weeks at the Lemon Tree and were very happy with our decision to stay there. Karen met us at the train station parking lot and we followed her to the Lemon Tree. The road (as previously mentioned) is in need of repair and initially quite shocking but after the first time, it's easily navigable.
The accommodations were well kept and clean. The views were spectacular. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate, so we didn't use the pool. But the main reason why we enjoyed our stay so much was due to the exceptional kindness of Karen and Diego. They were more than helpful in recommending restaurants/excursions, arranging cooking lessons, paying parking ticket, and taking my husband to the doctor.
We enjoyed our stay immensely and would definitely recommend this property.

A SICILIAN HOLIDAY AT THE LEMON TREE

  • 5 of 5
Eight days at The Lemon Tree hosted by Karen and Diego--What a great way to end a three week holiday that began in Rome and ended at The Lemon Tree in Taormina, where the hospitality was outstanding, the panorama--Mount Etna, the sea, the mountains--striking and beautiful, and the accomodations excellent. We enjoyed being at The Lemon Tree so much that we spent much of our time there just "chilling out" the eight days rather than venturing out too often into the environs. Rest assured that we'll recommend The Lemon Tree to all of our friends in the USA and that we'll be back soon to experience the wonderful hospitality of Karen and Diego and the amenities of The Lemon Tree.

NOUS AVONS ADORÉ !

  • 5 of 5
Nous avons passé une semaine en Sicile et Le Lemon Tree était notre QG pour la semaine.
L'emplacement en surplomb de Taormina donne une vue magnifique sur Castelmola, Taormina, la mer et l'Etna.
L'ambiance paisible et familiale était parfaite pour nous reposer.
Les conseils de Karen et Diego, les propriétaires, pour nos excursions en scooter et voiture étaient complètement adaptés à ce que nous recherchions; jusqu'à nous présenter une cousine pour nous apprendre à faire nos propres pasta à l'italienne ;)
Bref, une semaine de bonheur largement aidée par ce couple qui sait faire du vrai tourisme et faire profiter les gens de la région.
La situation gégographique nous a permis d'avoir une belle vision de l'Est de la SIcile en une semaine (Etna, Iles eolinennes, Syracuse, Noto, Taormina, Castelmola et road trip dans les régions avoisinantes).

On Adore !!!

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5
High atop a Sicilian mountaintop, The Lemon Tree with it's spectacluar views of the Sicilian coastline and Ionian Sea simply defies description. The owners could not be any more accomodating and the place is simply magical! Strategically located 15 minutes from Toarmina and 10 minutes from the beaches of Giardini-Naxos (a quick ride down the mountain), the Lemon Tree is close to everything yet gives nice buffer from being right in the midst of all the tourism. We had everything we needed for a reasonable price and will most definitely be making a return trip. We highly recommend the Lemon Tree to anyone staying in the area of Taormina!

WOW WOW WOW

  • 5 of 5
Wow, wow, wow ! Well if you ever wanted a perfect place to stay, with THE perfect hosts, and in the perfect location, then this is it. Diego and Karen go out of their way to make you feel at home, it\'s like visiting old friends, and nothing is too much trouble. Their advice on sites to see, restaurants to eat at and general information on local food and customs is just spot on, and all this is delivered with genuine enthusiasm and an unparalelled knowledge, not surprising seeing as Diego was born and bred in Taormina! The apartment was gorgeous, with views that cannot be done justice in photographs, you have to experience them for real.It is amazing what Diego and Karen have produced from what was a shell by all accounts, and their future plans will only enhance this perfect location even more.We left with very heavy hearts, not just because we were leaving beautiful Sicilia, but because we were leaving new found friends. We will be back, because we have so much more to see, and because I forgot to pay for the \"interesting\" wine/sherry/rocket fuel, but mainly to enjoy the most perfect location in the company of a fabulous couple.

The Lemon Tree villa is located in a very tranquil area of Taormina. It is 3 miles from the centre of town and set in beautiful countryside surrounded by olive groves and vineyards. A 10 minute drive will take you to the coastline where you can enjoy one of the many beaches on offer or access the motorway and visit one of the many wonders of Sicily. Castelmola is a 5 mile journey, the recently opened arabic castle of Calatabiano is a 5 mile journey and the Alcantara Gorges are a 15 mile trip. The majestic Volcano 'Mount Etna' is not to be missed and is reachable in an hour along with the water park 'Etnaland'. If you fancy some real history and culture take the 2.5 hour journey to Agrigento and visit the UNESCO protected Valley of the Temples and Piazza Armerina where you can see without doubt some of the most preserved mosaics in the world. If you are a Godfather movie enthusiast you may even decide to drive 15 miles to Forza D' Agro and Savoca and explore these stunning medieval towns that were selected by Francis Ford Coppola to feature several scenes in the Trilogy. Sicily is making huge steps in producing award winning wines, why not visit local vineyards and sample a few of these delights. Alternatively you can just chill around the pool take in our breath-taking scenery and soak in the sun and tranquillity!
