Fantastic Villa & Amazing View to Aetna

  • 5 of 5

We have recently stayed at Villa Lunasole for 7 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is a very comfortable home with beautifully kept garden and swimming pool and the most amazing view to the Aetna in the distance. The Villa was very clean and the pool has a good size and was very clean and well maintained during our stay. Restaurants and Supermarkets are only 5 minutes away in the local town. Just 15 minutes away you will find Taormina one of my favorite town with a great view to the sea and Aetna and the amazing ancient theatre. I would prefer to rent a car to see all the sights in the near. I can highly recommend this accommodation!

An Absolute Gem

  • 5 of 5

We have just completed a fantastic one week stay at Le Case Principe near Taormina. Ideal for families, the complex consists of 5 self-catering villas and a fabulous big swimming pool. Well located to do the sights of Taormina, Giardini Naxos, Etna and Catania but also good for just relaxing by the pool and doing nothing. The local town has some wonderful patisserie/gelato shops and there are two decent sized supermarkets near by. We particularly enjoyed the heard of goats that comes past on the road outside twice a day with their "shepherd" running behind. A car is essential but in my view (having stayed in hotels in Taormina itself many times) this is much preferable to the heat and noise of the town.

Lunasole review

  • 5 of 5

Overall, we had an excellent experience staying in Lunasole. Gabriele welcomed us and showed us where to shop and dine in the neighborhood, and he had excellent suggestions for sightseeing in the area. We were especially grateful for his suggestion to visit the 12th century Basilica of S. Pietro e S. Paolo in the country just north of Taormina which is not included in any guide we had with us. The accommodations were comfortable, clean and stylish, and the resort is located in a bucolic setting about a 15-minute drive from Taormina. I would recommend a stay at this resort without reservation.
