Lovely apartment in ideal location

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights and found it the most perfect location for our trip to Taormina. The apartment is traditional and it really feels like you are living like a local. It is the far end of the main street, nicely out of the hubbub, but still so close to everything. There was a supermarket 20 seconds away and loads of restaurants a stones throw away.

We hired a car and parked in a big multi story car park about an 8 min walk away which could be left in over night.

The owner Vanessa was lovely and we had a great lunch in her restaurant which was within sight of the apartment.

Taormina is beautiful, be prepared to walk, but highly recommend it.

Superb setting in real neighborhood yet easy access to tourist sites

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is in an excellent location-- it was in a quiet courtyard that felt like a 'real' neighborhood complete with orange tree outside, yet very short, easy walk into heart of Taormina. Grocery store & delicious cannoli shop right across the street. Kitchen is downstairs; the upstairs rooms were very comfortable with nice views to outside; some things like tp, dish soap were in short supply but no big deal as store across way. Only real issue for me was some confusion about checking in -- after communicating my arrival time & fact I had no cell phone, I arrived & followed email directions to go to neighboring restaurant to pick up key to apt; when got there sign on restaurant door indicated it was only open on weekends. In a quandary until kindness of neighbors resolved issue by calling owner who then came over with key. This glitch quickly forgotten, however, once I settled into the upstairs rooms of apartment & walked around the neighborhood.
