“Elegant, refined apartment in Taormina”

If you want to stay in an elegant, refined environment in Taormina town this is the perfect
location. In reality, it's even better than the appealing photographs. It feels like a home and has real character rather than the usual bland basic holiday rental properties or hotel rooms and also has everything that you could possibly need. All the rooms are light and spacious. Each morning coming into the living room opening on to the large sunny private terrace overlooking the sea was a delight. The terrace has two trees for shade, an awning and two separate eating areas. It's perfect for sitting in the sun on the loungers, reading or just watching the lizards.

Laura is a warm, generous, welcoming host who couldn't have been more helpful. She lives below the apartment but is very discreet. There was wine and basic foodstuffs left for our use in the kitchen. For shopping there is a large supermarket up the road, a fishmonger, vegetables and fruit sold by a street trader and a choice of restaurants and cafes nearby. Taormina is busy, especially at the weekends, which makes the name of this villa - Oasi - most appropriate. It was so good to come back to after going to the beach or sightseeing.

Unlike many rental properties in Taormina it is accessible without having to climb any steps. We booked for a week and the flat was cleaned/sheets changed mid week. It's probably best for couples: especially those who enjoy music, art and books. We have stayed over the years in many holiday apartments. This one is exceptional. Would we go back again? Absolutely.

“La Grande Bellezza! I felt like I was staying in a Bond Film!”
Reviewed 26 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

My stay at Casa Oasi was a grand experience.

I arrived jet lagged, but was refreshed after a personal reception from the owner who gave me fruits, sparkling water and an espresso, before giving us a tour of the villa and grounds. As it was still early in the day, I asked of some recommended sights to see nearby and of possibly restaurants for the evening. The owner was very helpful to tell me of many local sights to see and also offer many restaurant choices depending on what I desired. Overall the owner is very friendly, hospitable and knows a great deal of history of the area. The owners are proud local Sicilians and were very enthusiastic in suggesting area places to visit in Taormina and neighboring cities; they even provided us with maps! My Italian is limited, so I appreciate their efforts, however they spoke English as well, so staying here was no problem.

A friend from London recommended this villa saying it had a great view for Toarmina - they were more than correct, it is spectacular! Like a view out of a Bond film, I could see the Sicilian Coast, smell the sea air, and could hear church bells in the distance. The location of Casa Oasi is just minutes from the Duomo di Taormina, the beach, and the city centre. We easily were able to stroll to the beach and walk to most of our meals, making our trip more memorable, allowing us to get a real local feel. The building exterior had an old worlde charm, but the interior and rooms seemed relatively new. The villa is completely air conditioned, has a decent sized usable kitchen for cooking (with fridge space) and includes free wifi! We used the air conditioning in the daytime, however we personally preferred to sleep with the windows open in the evening to hear the sounds the coast in the distance and to awake to a breeze. Additionally there is a great patio off of the living room, which we used for drinks in the evening and sat outside in the morning to watch the sunrise and have coffee.

For those driving, there is a public parking spot a few minutes walk from the villa that we used during our trip, to have a rental car should be no issue - as long as there are spaces.

Overall an extremely memorable experience! A very charming villa with a warm host that makes you feel right at home in Sicily!
