On the back side, there is a spacious sleeping room with a queen size bed and a private balcony with a splendid view of the quaint pedestrian street. A spacious kitchen (offering a secondary street access) and a bathroom with shower complete the level.

EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Villa Ida in mid-May. As other reviewers have said, it is very accurately described and is in a splendid, central location and very close to all the amenities you would need. (Restaurants, Bars, Mini-markets, Bakeries, shops, bus station, taxi rank) Worthy of note are, La Bottega di Laganà, Via Di Giovanni 47, a specialist food store that stocks an excellent range of foods (try their red/white wine and don’t be put off by the plastic bottles!) and Bam Bar, 45 Via Di Giovanni, rightly popular with visitors who want to try granita and brioche for breakfast, delicious! Corso Umberto is only 30 seconds away, too.
The Villa is well maintained, spotlessly clean and was even better than the photos suggested, there is ample room for 3 adult couples. Be warned, however, two of the bedrooms and one of the bathrooms have sloping ceilings, but for us this just added to the charm. The kitchen is well equipped for those who wish to cater for themselves.
The garden is delightful with orange and lemon trees and garden furniture and, considering how centrally located the Villa is, surprisingly quiet. We retired to eat our lunch there most days, with food and wine bought from La Bottega di Laganà. Delightful.
Owner Davide was extremely easy to deal with too and his communications were excellent as was his advice on a variety of things. Our Security deposit was refunded very promptly.
All in all, we had a wonderful stay at the Villa Ida, Would we return? Definitely. Would we recommend Vill Ida? Certainly, without a moments hesitation. But then again we might just keep it a wonderful secret...

VILLA IDA-SECOND VISIT

  • 5 of 5
We had visited Villa Ida in September 2012, we enjoyed our visit so much we returned again this year. We were not disappointed! The house is clean & equipped with everything you will need for a comfortable stay. Exactly as we remembered it.
The location is perfect-Mini markets, restaurants, bakeries, & shopping all within a 5 minute walk.
I hope that my future includes another visit to this beautiful spot. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a girls getaway or a romantic holiday in Taormina.

FANTASTIC GETAWAY AT VILLA IDA

  • 5 of 5
Villa Ida is in the perfect location, not too far from the bus terminal and in fact Taormina is a small town so you will be close to anywhere you want. Anything you could possibly need is provided for in the villa.We were 4 single ladies sharing the three bedrooms and two bathrooms and we had plenty of space and there was always plenty of hot water for showers. The garden courtyard is a lovely place to relax with a drink or home prepared food. We felt very much at home there. Davide corresponded well and I have received my deposit within three days or our return. We already recommended Villa Ida to a couple returning to Taormina in September and would happily do so for any of our friends.

MARVELOUS TIME IN TAORMINA

  • 5 of 5
We had a marvelous time in Taormina! The apartment is definitely as described on web site. The garden is gorgeous!
Luckily we followed the advice re transportation. Davide gave us the e-mail of a taxi company. The taxi for us at Catania airport at mid night in spite of a considerable delay and brought us directly to the apartment where the cleaning lady was waiting for us to hand over the keys (at 0:30 am!).
Later we rented a car - however driving in Taormina and Catania is a nightmare...
One warning: The first week of our two weeks stay was cold and wet... be prepared...
Luckily the apartment is equipped with a powerful heating.... however Sicily is definitely nicer when the sun shines...
Note: the deposit has been paid back immediately without any discussions.
