The apartment is located on the road leading from Taormina to Castelmola, 500 meters from restaurants and bars and 4 km from the sea. It has been recently renovated and its strongest point is the stunning view that you can have from the living room, the terrace and the master bedroom. You will enjoy a sweeping view from the the coast of Giardini Naxos to Mount Etna.

Furniture and decorations have been chosen with great care and air conditioning and WiFi are included in the rental price. There are 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a large living room. The kitchen opens onto the spacious terrace overlooking the bay.

The apartment has no private parking, but free parking places (a rare privileged in Taormina) can be found on the street.

About Giulia Lattanzio / Lenneke Burghouts / Giulia Tiriticco

We have been with Homeaway since 2006, proposing houses that are able to unfold Sicily's colours and charm at best.

Houses with quality furnishing in unique locations, with incredible views or with a pool, always accurately selected in order to satisfy our main wish: to see you falling in love with Sicily just like we did.

We provide you with transparent information and true pictures. What you see is exactly what you get. We will advise you as much as we can about travel info, transfers and car rental.

Dinners in villas and other extra services can also be arranged. Finally, our prices are final rates! There are no hidden additional costs. We are flexible with your arrivals and departures and if you need a late check-in this is usually possible.

Too noisy for us!

  • 3 of 5

The view from the apartment is outstanding but the traffic noise really put a damper on our visit. We enjoyed the outdoor space when we were at the apartment. The big bedroom is good but the second bedroom is not really suited for a couple. Perhaps for children it would be okay. The person managing the property and giving us the keys was very prompt and courteous both at the beginning and near our departure. Otherwise we enjoyed Taormina and the surrounding area very much.

Satisfactory in general

  • 3 of 5

The apartment was lovely - newly and neutrally furnished, comfortable, spacious; gorgeous views over the sea and Mount Etna. Cleanliness needs to be improved upon (bathroom and kitchen mats for example). Thankfully very accommodating hosts (we were two hours early early).

Yet - the experience has been somewhat spoilt by the fact that the apartment is extremely noisy, being right on the main road. The traffic was horrendous, even during the night. This should definitively be mentioned.

Excellent apartment with great views

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks in this lovely apartment and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The apartment is just as it appears in the photos. We renamed the living room as the viewing room, as each day we would spend time relaxing with a wine in our hands, looking out the window at the spectacular views. Yes, the apartment is on the only road to Castelmola, but this added to our enjoyment, as we watched the amazing and amusing traffic displays below our window. We would definitely recommend the apartment.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much! I like the part "We renamed the living room as the viewing room, as each day we would spend time relaxing with a wine in our hands, looking out the window at the spectacular views." Because that is what makes this house special. Such big windows offering the same view or even better as the famous Greek Theatre of Taormina. Joris

superb apartment and customer service

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely apartment with spectacular views. Unfortunately aircon was knocked out by a lightening strike the day before we arrived, but the family owners quickly came to our rescue with temporary fans until it was fixed. The property was immaculately clean and well equipped. There is a route of stone steps leading to the m ain town which are manageable going down but for us, required a taxi coming home. The customer service was excellent and I have no hesitation in recommending this apartment notwithstanding the 2nd bedroom being small and virtually windowless. We had a super holiday !

Inaccurate description and no aircon

  • 1 of 5

If you are thinking of booking this flat, think again. And don't book anything else through the same agent. The description on this website used to say the flat was in the centre of Taormina, walkable to shops and restaurants, with a parking space outside. I also checked this info by email. When we got there we found it was on a very steep hill, about 30-40 mins walk from the centre. Couldn't use our rental car as no parking in Taormina. Hill road terribly busy and noisy, as another reviewer says, and there was no reserved space as we had been told, so we lived in constant fear of our car being driven into. So in effect we were marooned. As soon as we arrived, we contacted the agent for help and they were extremely rude and unhelpful. The owner was apologetic that we had been lied to but blamed the agent. Also the aircon was broken and wasn't fixed for the whole 9 day stay, with temps in the 30s. We got no sleep and asked for compensation which was refused and we were told it was extortion to even ask. The description of location and parking has now been changed but if you cannot trust the agent to tell the truth then you cannot trust anything else they say.

Owner's Response: The homeaway website provides you with a map and the exact location of the apartment. Morever, together with the booking reservation we send the directions of the house with a Google map link. According to Google maps the distance from the house to the center of Taormina is 10 minutes on foot and that is what we wrote in our advert. Parking is free and available on the large street below the apartment. At 2 minutes by car towords the centre of Taormina there is also a private parking with daily and weekly fees. Unfortunately this summer the airconditioner broke and with everyone in holiday it was difficult to find everything was needed to repair it within a short time. In any case we provided the guest with a ventilation system. The airconditioner has been repaired. Some guests let us know that in certain hours of the day you can hear noises from the street below. Others told us that they were not bothered by it and that with the window closed they could not hear anything. We call extortion when a client wants to obtain a disproportionate refund with a threat of a bad review.
