About Bruno Sacchi

My name is Bruno, I am 46 years old and I am one of the founding members of Flexy Rent.

I took mi first steps in this field 10 years ago when I started letting my parent's holiday-home in Rapallo not far from Portofino, in the Ligurian Riviera, Italy.

Since the very beginning it was a great experience both for my guests and myself: they anjoyed my attitude to the hospitality and I learned more and more about how to turn an apartment into a perfect holiday accomodaton.

This year I decided to start a business helping other home owners and travellers sharing the same great experience I had.

I really hope you'll enjoy us!

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is located near the tennis courts, the Gardens of the Villa Comunale Taormina (garden with views of Mount Etna, coast to Catania and Messina).

Taormina is a comune and small town on the east coast of the island of Sicily, Italy, in the Province of Messina, about midway between Messina and Catania. Taormina has been a very popular tourist destination since the 19th century. It has popular beaches (accessible via an aerial tramway) on the Ionian sea, which is remarkably warm and has a high salt content. Taormina can be reached via highways (autostrade) from Messina from the north and Catania from the south.

Many exhibitions and events are organized during the summer in Taormina. The exceptional stage for pop and classical concerts, opera and important performances often recorded by television (for example, the ceremony of the Silver Ribbon Award, the Festivalbar, the Kore) is the Ancient Theatre. Since 1983, the most important performances are realized by Taormina Arte, the cultural institution which organizes one of the most famous music, theatre and dance festivals. Within the program of Taormina Arte there is the Taormina Film Fest, the well-known cinema festival, the heir of the Cinema Festival of Messina and Taormina, dating from 1960, which for about twenty years has hosted the David of Donatello Awards with the participation of the most famous Italian film stars. During the Taormina Film Fest the Silver Ribbons are now awarded, a prize created by Italian Film Journalists.

Just south of Taormina is the Isola Bella, a nature reserve; and further south, situated beside a bay, is the popular seaside resort of Giardini Naxos. Tours of the Capo Sant' Andrea grottos are also available.

The village of Taormina is perched on a cliff overlooking the Ionian sea. Besides the ancient Greek theatre, it has many old churches, lively bars, fine restaurants, and antique shops. Taormina is approximately a forty-five minute drive away from Europe's largest active volcano, Mount Etna.

A really wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment for four nights. Taormina appeared to be crowded with tourists. Yet, they appeared to flock mainly in and around the town's high street, the Corso Umberto I. The apartment was off-off the high street, and proved to be a quiet oasis amidst the hustle and bustle of Taormina. The Apartment was very well equipped and appeared to be very spacious.

There was one glitch, in that the owner provided us with a wrong address, and we lost quite some time with locating the apartment. Overall, this was just a minor issue, which wouldn't put us off to go here again. Overall, a place that we would certainly recommend when visiting the eastern part of Sicily.

Casa molto carina e confortevole a Taormina

  • 5 of 5

Siamo stati solo un paio di giorni ma ci siamo goduti questa bellissima casa al meglio. Silenziosa, tranquilla e arredata con gran gusto: ci siamo goduti anche il giardinetto per rilassarci leggendo libri e facendo ricche colazioni. Comoda da raggiungere, questa casa è localizzata in pieno centro storico e consente di vivere la tradizione siciliana a contatto con una realtà che difficilmente si può dimenticare: dall'omino che ci ha venduto i limoni appena raccolti all'Ape Car che vendeva la frutta fresca, al Bambar dove abbiamo preso le tipiche buonissime granite siciliane, alle passeggiate lungo il Corso Umberto fino ad arrivare alla terrazza panoramica che offre una vista mozzafiato sul mare, sull'Etna e su tutto il circondario.

Il mare è stupendo e siamo stati alla famosa Isola Bella dove abbiamo fatto bagni stupendi.

Non mancheremo di tornare e speriamo per un periodo più lungo!
