“Great location in the centre of Taormina with far reaching views”
Reviewed 28 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Located just a few steps from Corsa Umberto this apartment is ideal for sightseeing, shopping and nightlife not to mention access to the many cafes and restaurants all within walking distance. The local beaches and lidos are accessible by taking the cable car (about a 10 minute walk) or taking a shuttle bus service from nearby hotels. The apartment is traditionally decorated and well equipped with very efficient air conditioning and spotlessly clean throughout, the views from the terrace and upper balcony are panoramic encompassing Etna, the Greek Theatre and the Ionian sea below. Virginia the owner was very helpful arranging an airport pick-up for us and we were able to contact her throughout the stay with any questions. There is no wifi in the apartment, however, you have Cafa Carmelo bar/internet cafe just downstairs at the entrance on the ground floor - perfect.

“Excellent apartment and very quiet”
Reviewed 30 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Myself and my friend spent a superb week in this apartment. It was very well equipped (apart from a paring knife!) and we were given a wonderfully warm welcome. It was also immaculately clean and so central that you were very close to the supermarket and the enchanting little shops and restaurants. The only downside was the spiral staircase up to the spacious terrace, kitchen and sitting room which could be a little tricky to manipulate. We would both strongly recommend staying here and all communication was very well organised.

“Incredible view from the terrace”

person found this review helpful

We have just returned from a lovely holiday in Sicily ending with 5 days in this well situated and comfortable apartment. Booking was very easy with Virginia responding to e-mails very promptly. Also Virginia and her mum, Pina, were very welcoming and we had a cool bottle of Masala wine in waiting to restore us after our journey from Syracuse - which we did by train and found it very easy. The apartment is right in the heart of the old town but up a little side street shielding you from the noise of the busy thoroughfare below. From the terrace you have a fantastic view of Mount Etna on one side and the Greek theatre on the other. The apartment is well equipped although we ate out at a different restaurant most nights. We really enjoyed the terrace but there is also a comfortable little sitting room with satellite tv. I must admit wifi would have been nice but there are lots of free wifi areas in Taormina. The stairs need a mention, it wasn't a problem for us, but if you have a problem climbing stairs you should know that there is a set of quite steep spiral stairs to get from the bedrooms to the living area above. Otherwise we could not fault the apartment.

“Lovely Apartment”
Reviewed 15 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

The apartment was lovely, and very comfortable and quiet, even though its only a few yards from the bustling main street of Corso Umbreto. Both bedrooms are a good size, so accommodated the 4 adults with ease, although the kitchen really only takes 2 at any one time. The main terrace is very spacious with good views of the sea and Etna, when not covered in cloud, and made all the better as the sliding doors meant it feels like an extension of the lounge. We parked at the Porta Catania multi storey for the week for 50 Euros and as its only about 300 yds from the apartment, this was no inconvenience. My daughter and boyfriend missed not having access to wifi, but it is available at the cafe just at the entrance to the property. Also Virginia could not be more helpful making sure we arrived safely and when we asked for a second set of keys they were provided promptly without any fuss. Like the other reviewers, we would thoroughly recommend the apartment
