Very nice property, close to Taormina

  • 4 of 5

Lovely property, with a great swimming pool and very nice surrounding gardens. The host and staff were helpful at all times, and the property was clean, in good state, and as described.

Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late in the evening and still were greeted at the gate by Monica who not only gave us a tour of the property but also provided a number of wonderful recommendations for things to see and places to eat...all of her recommendations were amazing! We spend each morning site seeing or at the beautiful sand beach with calm clear water for swimming that was about a 5 minute drive away but the pool with the gorgeous view of Mt. Etna drew us back every afternoon. I am already thinking of when I could return. The cottage itself was also very comfortable and well stocked with everything you might need. I would go back again and again.

An Oasis beneath a smouldering Mount Etna

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself and our 11 year old son have just returned from two fabulous weeks staying in Cottage Luna. The location is absolutely breathtaking, the pool and sitting area around it the best we have ever experienced, and the accommodation all we could ask for for our 2 weeks away. Monica, the House Keeper, couldn't do enough for us, and was only a text away if we needed anything more, and whilst we spent much of our time just reading and dipping in and out of the pool, it was also a great base for where we wanted to go to explore. Taormina is definitely worth a visit, and the restaurants recommended to us by Monica, well worth a trip too. Plus, despite speaking no Italian ourselves, the Sicilians are just lovely lovely people. We would definitely like to return to Luna again, and would recommend this place to anyone looking for a great place to stay off the East coast of Sicily. Thank you Gabriel and Monica. Michelle, Mike and Toby.

Fantastic Villa & Amazing View to Aetna

  • 5 of 5

We have recently stayed at Villa Lunasole for 7 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is a very comfortable home with beautifully kept garden and swimming pool and the most amazing view to the Aetna in the distance. The Villa was very clean and the pool has a good size and was very clean and well maintained during our stay. Restaurants and Supermarkets are only 5 minutes away in the local town. Just 15 minutes away you will find Taormina one of my favorite town with a great view to the sea and Aetna and the amazing ancient theatre. I would prefer to rent a car to see all the sights in the near. I can highly recommend this accommodation!

An Absolute Gem

  • 5 of 5

We have just completed a fantastic one week stay at Le Case Principe near Taormina. Ideal for families, the complex consists of 5 self-catering villas and a fabulous big swimming pool. Well located to do the sights of Taormina, Giardini Naxos, Etna and Catania but also good for just relaxing by the pool and doing nothing. The local town has some wonderful patisserie/gelato shops and there are two decent sized supermarkets near by. We particularly enjoyed the heard of goats that comes past on the road outside twice a day with their "shepherd" running behind. A car is essential but in my view (having stayed in hotels in Taormina itself many times) this is much preferable to the heat and noise of the town.
