Why Gisella chose Taormina & Surroundings

Whenever I host someone in my house is a load of humanity that adds to my life and from that moment belongs to me . So it is normal for me to do so that the other person is very bene.Amo my land , I'm sorry when shown a face of it that there appartiene.Spesso is not important what you see outside , but as you lives at the time and my house is brought in the warmth of my parents, the generosity of my mother, the hard work of my father who built it , my constant desire to keep alive not only the memory but also their values . So I often '' live '' the holiday with my clients , bringing them around to visit the surroundings, making finding them our cannoli, almond paste , my sweet and good wine with almonds . I fondly recall Mrs. G. Hanna , I went to take my son with the machine at the airport, with his 6 children, of whom the oldest was about 12 years old, single . I was a little tense, I was worried for them, accompanied him with the car shopping in Taormina or Giardini , one evening I invited them to eat at my house with my family , but after a trip made ​​along the Gorges d ' Alcantara and a stop at a pastry Piedimonte , refreshment for the children , she realized that she was the one helping me , I had infected his strength , his determination , confidence in children , who still supports me in my work insegnante.Ecco because you look like this: to remember and remind me , with discretion , but leaving a mark .

What makes this apartment unique

The best reward is knowing that you did something, even if just for the other. A trip he remembers in time, a meeting, sometimes remains for a lifetime. I wish my house was all for a meeting, a set of emotions that remain for a lifetime. It costs me a lot of sacrifices and renunciations, but for this has more value. Visit Taormina is a continuous meeting: of people, languages, cultures ... I stay inside and do not you forget it. THANK YOU!

Wonderful service and location

  • 5 of 5

Gisella is a great service provider. From the outset she was very responsive with emails and this continued throughout our stay. We were a party of 4 adults with a baby and Gisella organised a cot and highchair for our grandson before we arrived. The apartment was very quiet for the baby and the thick walls meant that we could get on with things without the worry of making noise and waking the baby.

We stayed 10 days and found the location to the town, the funicular and stairs to the beach very convenient. The apartment was comfortable and well presented.

Thank you Gisella. we would not hesitate to recommend your apartment. You helped us to have a great stay and to enjoy our son's wedding.

W la Guardiola!

Mi chiamo Alessandra, io ed una mia amica abbiamo soggiornato in questo appartamento dal 24 al 29 agosto, con un rapporto di qualità prezzo sorprendente, considerando gli elevati costi di pernottamento a Taormina.

La cortesia e la disponibilità della signora Gisella è stata fantastica.

Camere pulite ed accoglienti. Riconosco il fatto che la struttura mantiene in buonissima parte le promesse delle foto e della descrizione. Una buona sistemazione immersa in totale tranquillità.

Ottima la posizione, a soli tre minuti dal terminal bus e a due passi dal centro storico.

Non esiteremmo a soggiornare nuovamente alla nostra prossima visita a Taormina! Altamente consigliato!

Owner's Response: La ricompensa migliore è sapere che hai fatto qualcosa, anche se poco, per gli altri. Un viaggio si ricorda nel tempo, un incontro, a volte rimane per tutta la vita. Vorrei che la mia casa fosse per tutti un incontro, un insieme di emozioni che restano per tutta la vita. Mi costa tanti sacrifici e rinunce, ma proprio per questo ha più valore. Visitare Taormina è un continuo incontro: di gente,lingue, culture diverse...ti resta dentro e non la dimentichi. GRAZIE!

Una bella vacanza

  • 4 of 5

Siamo stati accolti dalla signora Gisella in modo caloroso e ospitale, tanto che ci è venuta a prendere alla stazione bus. Ci ha mostrato la baia e ci ha dato le prime informazioni utili.

L'appartamento si trova in una posizione strategica perchè non è nel pieno del caos turistico ma allo stesso tempo vicino al centro. Inoltre è a metà strada tra terminal bus e funivia. In questo modo tutte le spiagge sono facilmente raggiungibili e il centro con tutti i ristoranti altrettanto.

Silenzioso e confortevole, pulito e spazioso. Il terrazzo è anche carino perchè affaccia sulla baia di Isola bella.La colazione è abbondante, la signora Gisella ha lasciato dolci e brioches, latte e succhi di frutta. Non mancava nulla.

Grazie signora Gisella e complimenti per il suo lavoro e la passione con cui lo svolge!

Spero di tornarci presto e lo consiglio vivamente a chiunque voglia vivere Taormina in serenità , sentendosi a casa.

Owner's Response: Ogni volta che ospito qualcuno nella mia casa è un carico di umanità che si aggiunge alla mia vita e da quel momento mi appartiene. Per cui è normale per me fare in modo che l'altra persona stia bene.Amo molto la mia terra, mi dispiace quando viene mostrato un volto di essa che non ci appartiene.Spesso non è importante ciò che si vede fuori, ma come si vive quel momento e la mia casa si porta dentro il calore dei miei genitori, la generosità di mia madre, l'operosità di mio padre che l'ha costruita,la mia costante volontà di mantenere vivo non solo il ricordo ma anche i loro valori.Così mi capita spesso di ''vivere'' la vacanza con i miei clienti, portandoli in giro a visitare i dintorni, facendo trovare loro i nostri cannoli , le paste di mandorla, i miei dolci e il buon vino alla mandorla. Ricordo con affetto la signora Hanna G., che andai a prendere insieme alla macchina di mio figlio all'aeroporto, con i suoi 6 figli, dei quali il più grande aveva circa 12 anni,sola. Ero un pò in tensione, mi preoccupavo per loro, l'accompagnavo con la macchina per la spesa a Taormina o a Giardini , li invitai una sera a mangiare a casa mia con la mia famiglia, ma dopo una gita fatta insieme alle Gole d' Alcantara e una sosta in una pasticceria di Piedimonte, per rifocillare i bambini, capì che era lei ad avermi aiutata, mi aveva contagiato la sua forza, la sua determinazione, la fiducia nei bambini, che ancora oggi mi sostiene nel mio lavoro di insegnante.Ecco perchè vi aspetto: per ricordare e farmi ricordare, con discrezione, ma lasciando un segno.
