About the property

Hill zone very panoramic (seascape) an quiete. 2 bedrom, clima, wifi, big balcon

On the top of the beautiful hill of the ancient convent of “Cappuccini”, just about 250 m. far from the main street of Taormina “Corso Umberto”, the apartment “Miramare”, like its name suggests, gives its guests a wonderful view of our sea : the bay of Taormina and the Calabria in front of you.

Inside the apartment the furniture is a refined mix of Sicilian and modern style.In the entrance there is a large living room with typical mosaic flooring, it is separated from the kitchen by a brickworked arch . The kitchen is made up of natural material like granite and little lavic stone tiles on the walls.

The two bedrooms are beautiful and because of their different colours, we can call them: “Sea” and “Etna”.

In the bedroom “Etna” there are colours that vary from the red to the orange and yellow; it has a glass- door that looks into the balcony and on the garden below. The bedroom “Sea” is larger, its colours are blue, light blue and light yellow. It has a larger glass door – window that makes the room very well-lighted and looks on the town on one side and on the bay of Taormina on your left- side. The two bedrooms open on three large balconies typically decorated with Sicilian jars and wrought iron lamps and flower pots. There are also wicker chairs and sofa for your breakfast outside.

Sitting here , a wonderful view will size your eyes: the smell of the jasmine, typical Mediterranean plant, the colours of the sea and of the garden below with its lemon and orange trees and the palm tree; in the warm Spring or Summer evenings you will enjoy a glass of good Si

Great! - We're coming back!

  • 5 of 5

Sacha’s apartment was perfect for us, a family of four, for 2 wonderful weeks. Good air com and very clean with spectacular (and I mean spectacular!) views across the rooftops and blue med across the straights of Messina to the Italian mainland. 200m short walk to the local food market and nearest Alimentari. Very close to the hustle and bustle of the Corso Umberto and Taormina centre, but the apartment is a quiet retreat. Sacha was very friendly, accommodating and non-intrusive. Taormina is a great location – the cable car to Isola Bella beach, days trips to Mount Etna (Etna People were great) and the Aolian Islands. We will DEFINITELY be returning!!!!

La Calabre à portée de vue depuis le balcon

  • 4 of 5

La réservation avec Sacha s"est bien déroulée. L'appartement est spacieux. La vue depuis le grand balcon est fantastique.C'était notre lieu de vie principal. Le centre de Taormina est à 5 mn à pied. Seules la salle de bain (baignoire sabot d'un autre temps dont l'utilisation n'est pas des plus simple) et la cuisine sont à revoir. La description de l'appartement est conforme à ce qui est décrit sur le site.

Cependant, il aurait été judicieux d'indiquer que de part sa situation, son accès peut s'avérer très délicat pour certaines personnes.

Pas de possibilité d'accès en voiture, la route étroite en forte pente et un escalier en final. Pour se garer, il faut aller au parking Lumbi à 2 km en contrebas (13€ pour la nuit). L'accès au village depuis le parking se fait par une navette gratuite ou par un escalier depuis le dernier étage du parking? Attention aux horaires de fonctionnement des navettes su vous devez partir tôt.

Le village en lui-même est très sympa et animé. Quelques bons restaurants et gelaterias. Des belles plages accessibles en 5 mn en voiture.

A recommander pour les personnes qui n'ont pas de problèmes de mobilité.

Taormina, een bezoek waard

  • 5 of 5

Ligging van het appartement was gunstig voor bezoek aan Taormina. Het appartement was ook schoon, ruim en een groot balkon met uitzicht op zee. Voor oudere gasten was de douche niet zo praktisch. De eigenaar was erg behulpzaam en gaf ook goede tips voor bezienswaardigheden en voor goede restaurantjes.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We were absolutely delighted with our apartment, so clean and well equiped with everything you could possibly need. Sacha was very helpful and spent time with us explaining all aspects of the apartment and supplied us with a map of the surrounding area. The location is quiet and perfect, just a quick walk to Corso Umberto (the main street in Taormina) and the access to the funicular railway that arrives to the beach was very easy. The apartment has a great terrace with a stunning sea landscape view. Excellent and very comfortable.

Troppo bello

  • 5 of 5

Volete Taormina, allora dovete alloggiare in questo appartamento!!! L'appartamento offre grande confort con stanze ampie, ma soprattutto una fantastica terrazza che fa dimenticare le giornate pesanti di lavoro. La mattina riserva una fantastica alba dietro le montagne della Calabria, mentre al tramonto si riesce a fare rilassanti cenette nel tavolo della terrazza, in estrema tranquillità. Poi ricordo la camera Etna con piacere per comodità e fantasia, anche se entrambe sono ampissime. Come servizi, il mercato di Taormina è molto vicino quindi Pesce e verdura fresca di zona si riesce facilmente a portarle a casa e cucinare nella zona cottura, completo di stoviglie e piatti per tutti. Il centro città si raggiunge in un attimo, come la funivia per raggiungere le famose spiagge. Non può mancare un bagno ad Isola Bella, oasi naturale e obbligatorio portarsi maschera e boccaglio per uno snorkering insieme a molti pesci. Però siccome è molto affollata ho preferito prendere la macchina, sempre parcheggiata al parcheggio 40 euro a sett. (raggiungibile con 250 scalini oppure navetta fino alle 1:00 di notte) per andare a quelle di Forza D'Agrò. Le spiagge a parte quella di Isola Bella (ombrellone onesto a 7 euro pers.) sono molto libere per piazzare il tuo ombrellone. Tornando al centro si arriva in un attimo (tutta discesa) alla via principale che è piena di stranieri e locali per acquisti oppure per mangiare le granite siciliane fantastiche. Il centro offre molto per una famiglia in ferie, però arrivati alla terrazza è impossibile non stare affacciati per mirare le barche di 30 e più metri in rada, luminose nella notte. Sempre nella terrazza i diversi gruppi musicali nel locale 5 ARCHI fanno trascorrere la serata in allegria. I costi dei locali notturni e ristoranti sono abbastanza alti per la Sicilia, ma essendo abituato al centro di Firenze, non ho trovato tanta differenza! Gite ed escursioni sono possibili in molti posti perché Taormina è raggiunta da un autostrada e dall'appartamento facilmente si scende al parcheggio e si parte per l'Etna, per Giardini Naxos, per Aci-Castello, aci-reale, per Catania, per l'entroterra. INSOMMA se interessa Taormina, questo appartamento è indispensabile prenderlo in affitto, perché aumenta e valorizza le giornate trascorse in ferie nel posto più bello della Sicilia. Vuoi una vacanza indimenticabile??? allora FISSA, garantisce uno che guarda ancora le foto a mesi di distanza!!!
