I am originally from Munich Germany but am living in Taormina since many years. Once you come to Taormina you will experience the mystic spirit this place has. Once experienced it's hard to return home so I decided to simply stay in one of the most beautiful places I know. I degreed in Germany in economics and in engineering and gained my Phd in Austria. I work since many years in the information technology business which gives me the opportunity to work "where my computer is" . Being married with an italian I love cooking and enjoying live in its best way. I am looking forward to welcome you in one of our special places!
Mike purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Mike chose Taormina
I have fully restored this apartment in 2017 and it gets renovated each year . It is located in the historic city center of Taormina, in a quiet area but still everything can be reached within walking distance. There is a supermarket in front of the condo. Being located on the 5th (last) floor of an apartment building it has a unique position. being a penthouse type apartment it has a large terrace and several balconies which offer a spectacular views on the bay of Taormina, the beaches of Giardini Naxos, the landscape of Calabria and the old town of Taormina. Air condition in all three bed rooms From the living room you have an impressing view on vulcano Mt Etna and can watch the eruptions from a secure distance. Most of the very best restaurants of Taormina can be reached within a short walk.

Magnificent views. Great location to centre. Comfortable living quarters
Only drawback was that the penthouse was on the fifth floor with no elevator. Carrying luggage up 77 steps was difficult. It is not suitable for the elderly or anyone with any physical difficulties. But the stairs were great exercise for the rest of our stay
thank you for your kind review and I am happy you enjoyed your stay! Yes as mentioned in my advertisement the apartment is located on the 5th floor without elevator. Being located in the top floor you of course have unique views to the coastline of Calabria, Taormina and Mt. Etna. However in your review you have missed to mention that we (!) have carried up all your luggage to offer the very best service to you. All my best Mike
Great location out at the top of the city
Great and easy check in we had a great stay the place was clean and cool!
We loved Taormina it was all in all a wonderful stay in a beautiful city.
Apartment with a view!!
The apartment was very clean and modern with beautiful views from every window. Lots of natural light coming in because of all of the windows. Especially enjoyed the terrace with its breathtaking views of the town and water. Short walk to town although it is hilly and has stairs. As stated in the ad the apartment is in the 5 th floor so there are many stairs however the view is worth it. Would highly recommend!! Grazie tante!!
Mike’s place is located very close to the Taormina city center. The apartment is spotless with a great view.
Nice Location With Great Viewd
Enjoyed our stay in Taormina. Apartment as advertised. Clean and great communication with person assisting with our stay.
Taormina is magical. The location of the property is close to the city center, but know that there are many steps/hills to go down -this is just the nature of Taormina. The “5 flights of stairs” has over 50 steps so not for the faint of heart, but my elderly mother managed them each day! The apartment is spacious and we enjoyed the back terrace with a great view of the town’s landscape and small, but awesome view of the sea. The actual complex is in need of landscaping and maintenance, but the apartment itself is nice and clean. The bathrooms were great, and one is especially large. A/C worked great and Roberto was always available when we had questions.
