Taormina is the tops

We'd been wondering how to "do" Sicily: Syracuse for the culture, Catania for the volcano, Messina for the food and seaside, Palermo for the ... well, whatever; and plumped for Taormina for a bit of everything. We were so right ! Couldn't reccomend it more, its got absolutely everything. And what's more, it's a brilliant base for getting around to all the other places, its really well connected. Never imagined it would be so easy. Location really matters, we reckon, and this place is spot on.
Then the place was super too. New purpose-built conversion on a real citrus farm (a calm at night - and by day - you wouldn't believe) with masses of attention to detail. We really felt important. No worries about leaving the children, no worries about the pool, no worries about the WiFi, no worries about anything, in fact. Thinking back on it, we really did get a "taste" of Sicily, not just a stay in some anodyne place which could have been plonked down any old where. This was IT ! And whenever we went out for a meal nearby (good value, and by the way we can really recommend "Flora", up the hill) by some kind of magic there was always space for the four of us. Sicily really worked out well.
Owner's Response: I shall propose you to become a honorary citizen of Taormina !!!
