Overview

Taormina Apartment Rental Photos and Description

View On Piazza Duomo, Piazza Carmine, 2nd Floor, Quality Furnishing, 6 Sleeps

It is an apartment that enjoys two beautiful views: one at Piazza Duomo, the main square of Taormina, and the other at the see. The apartment belongs to a recently renovated building located on Piazza Carmine, a square with a cute little church, a huge pine tree and many facades of beautiful historic villas.

Both Piazza Duomo with its cathedral, and Corso Umberto, the main street of Taormina without cars where a stroll is a must lie just 30 meters from the entrance of Casa Carmine.

The apartment itself is completely renovated and it consists of a double bedroom, a twin bedroom, a bathroom with shower, bidet and toilet, and an open kitchen with a couch and a dining table. The living room and the bedrooms have direct access to a balcony and its lovely view.

The presence of air-conditioning and the location in the centre of Taormina make of Casa Carmine an ideal place at any time of the year. Not to mention that Taormina is blessed with sunshine all year round.

No sleep - Would not recommend

  • 1 of 5

I travel a lot and I have to say this place was definitely one of my worst experiences. I have never written a negative review but felt I needed to for this place.

1. Location of the place is in the town but on top of a bar that is extremely noisy (they also brake glass every night right outside the window). I had asked the owner if it was really as noisy as some of the other reviews had stated and she said that it was fine. WRONG! we did not get 1 full night sleep here..it was horrible...and for the price we paid, it felt like a complete rip off considering we did not rest at all. Also, the apartment was ok (except for the couch that looked super dirty)

2. When we got there, we could not find the place. We got lost... The owner did not even have the decency to tell us to meet at the square beside the apartment...they expected us to find the place without any clear indication (this is an old medieval town with many little allies behind the main road). I had to text the host to meet us somewhere after 30min of going around in circles.

3. When we got to the place, the host was not much help... There was no map handy.. we asked questions about the beach and things to do and barely got any answers.. It felt more like here are your keys..ok bye now...which is fine but nothing great. Before going to Taormina we went to Tropea in Calabria where we loved and had such a great experience and service so this place fell pretty short.

4.Taormina is overrated... Its nice but there are so many nicer places to see. The beach is far..not super nice and the place is super crowded with one main street to walk on. Its really a tourist town more than anything.

I would not recommend this place if you want to sleep and relax...I would also not recommend staying in Taormina more than 2 days.

Owner's Response: If you want 'to sleep and relax' do not rent an apartment in the centre of Taormina, in one of the main square. Having said that, considering the location, the apartment is not particularly noisy. If you want to be close to the beach and be able to find a secluded spot do not rent an apartment in the historical centre of one of the most requested town of Sicily, which is, by the way, on a hill. One star for this apartment is by no means deserved. We are always very willing to improve our apartment and the stay of our guests, but it is guest responsibility to be informed about where they are going.

Lovely apartment in a great location

  • 4 of 5

Casa Carmine is a lovely apartment that has been finished to a very high standard. We had a wonderful stay in Taormina and would definitely like to return.

The apartment was immaculately clean on arrival and there were plenty of towels, bed linen and crockery. The kitchen cupboard was stocked with basic essentials like coffee, sugar, salt etc. too which was handy. The location is wonderful - just behind the main piazza and 5 mins walk from the local supermarket, but this means that the binning of bottles from the neighboring bars and eateries in the early hours, can be very noisy. The main drawback is that there is no balcony or outside seating space with this apartment.

Fantastic position

  • 4 of 5

Great location in the centre of town. It's a busy area, above a lively bar, but we liked that. Apartment was very clean and had everything we needed. Would come back again.

Excellent Apartment in the heart of it All

  • 5 of 5

The apt. is right off the Piazza al Duomo in the heart of Taormina, truly an unbeatable location. We stayed with our two small kids (7 years old) and were perfectly situated. The Apt. is light, clean and generous, the bedrooms are roomy and comfortable and the AC cools the entire Apt. perfectly. We had zero issues with noise or other inconveniences (the shutters to the bedroom work wonders). We would use the place again in a heartbeat.

We truly enjoyed our stay at Casa Carmine in Taormina. The location was perfect. It was central to everything and I would stay there again if ever travelling to Taormina.

Lovely accommodation in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

This is a comfortable and clean apartment in an ideal location. The owner was helpful and friendly and replied promptly to my emails. We visited Taormina in March and enjoyed a relaxed atmosphere, although unfortunately the weather (and apartment) was a little chilly. I would definitely stay here again.

Car: not necessary

Taormina has a selection of bars and restaurants and a charming car-free main street with shops. Perched on a rocky promontory high above the sea, Taormina has been the most popular tourist destination in Sicily for a couple of hundred of years. Beautifully restored medieval buildings, breathtaking views around every corner and a giddy network of winding streets strewn with shops, bars and restaurants make for a perfect holiday spot. Taormina is served by its very own cable car which ferries tourists to and from the seaside resorts down along the coast. Extensive beaches, rocky coves, tiny islands (such as the famous Isola Bella) and sea stacks abound, making this enchanting coastline a firm favourite with Sicilians and visitors alike.
