This was a lovely apartment that certainly met our expectations. It was in a good location and the owner was very accommodating. When we arrived he had stocked the kitchen/refrigerator so that we didn't have to shop immediately. Americans should know that only one bathroom has an enclosed shower. The other has a jacuzzi tub with a shower head. We had fun trying to keep the water contained to the tub! We especially liked having a garage for parking and a large patio to enjoy the view.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?

“Worm meeting – a good start for holiday!”

We have spent in Francesca apartment 2 amazing weeks…..Very worm check-in after a long trip was what we needed. In the refrigerator we found cold wine, water, watermelon and all necessary things to relax and not to run to the shop immediately. The apartments itself is big enough to feel comfortable when you travel with friends. For me it was very important to be along some time a day and it was very easy to do with a guestroom and huge terrace. Close to the apartment – public market where we bought every day fresh fruits, cheese and FISH!!! We tried to eat in the evenings at home as it is very relaxing and romantic atmosphere on the terrace and kitchen is well equipped with everything you need to make a good dinner (even grill and dishwasher).The location is pretty well, it is 5 min by walk to cableway but we didn’t use any transport but use pedestrian small streets with amazing views to get down to the beach. I will for sure return to Francesca in 1-2 years)))Thanks a lot for Sicilian hospitality)))

“A peaceful haven in bustling Taormina”
Reviewed 1 June 2011 for a stay in September 2010

This apartment is every bit as good as the photos. It amply met our two main needs - a large outside space and a location near enough the centre of Taormina to be able to walk. The absolute highlight is the pleasant garden terrace, which is amazingly spacious with a lovely view of the sea, and a mix of sunny and shady areas for sitting, eating, and sunbathing. The view does also look down on the main carpark but it's easy to ignore this. All the main rooms open on to the terrace and are nicely furnished. The two bathrooms and kitchen are also very adequate, and we appreciated the good supply of basic provisions like coffee and tea, and fresh herbs from the garden . The owners who live next door gave us fresh grapes from their vineyard, and told us where the local market is for very cheap fresh food. We ate in quite a lot since it was so nice to sit on the terrace - and Taormina prices are high.

The walk to the centre of Taormina is a pleasant 10 minute stroll. There's lots to see and do there, so we didn't venture much farther afield that week except for a day's trip up Etna - well worthwhile on a clear day.
