Superb setting in real neighborhood yet easy access to tourist sites

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is in an excellent location-- it was in a quiet courtyard that felt like a 'real' neighborhood complete with orange tree outside, yet very short, easy walk into heart of Taormina. Grocery store & delicious cannoli shop right across the street. Kitchen is downstairs; the upstairs rooms were very comfortable with nice views to outside; some things like tp, dish soap were in short supply but no big deal as store across way. Only real issue for me was some confusion about checking in -- after communicating my arrival time & fact I had no cell phone, I arrived & followed email directions to go to neighboring restaurant to pick up key to apt; when got there sign on restaurant door indicated it was only open on weekends. In a quandary until kindness of neighbors resolved issue by calling owner who then came over with key. This glitch quickly forgotten, however, once I settled into the upstairs rooms of apartment & walked around the neighborhood.

Great location, spacious apartment, comfy bed!

  • 5 of 5

Great base for exploring Taormina and surroundings. Parking is not included, you need to pay for public parking. Great having use of the kitchen and really like the split level layout

Lovely apartment in ideal location

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights and found it the most perfect location for our trip to Taormina. The apartment is traditional and it really feels like you are living like a local. It is the far end of the main street, nicely out of the hubbub, but still so close to everything. There was a supermarket 20 seconds away and loads of restaurants a stones throw away.

We hired a car and parked in a big multi story car park about an 8 min walk away which could be left in over night.

The owner Vanessa was lovely and we had a great lunch in her restaurant which was within sight of the apartment.

Taormina is beautiful, be prepared to walk, but highly recommend it.

Tolle Wohnung in bester Lage

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Sie ist überraschend groß, schön eingerichtet und sehr sauber.

Sie befindet sich in zentraler und trotzdem ruhiger Lager. Besser geht es nicht.

Heerlijk rustpunt

  • 5 of 5

In de ochtend de balkondeuren van de slaapkamer en de woonkamer op de eerste verdieping open, uitzicht op een sinaasappelboom en tussen de huizen door een blik op een stukje zee. Dan naar de keuken beneden, koffie maken. Weer boven, koffie en met de goede WiFi het wereldnieuws op de tablet bekijken. Douchen en zo, vervolgens via een trapje naar de straat, supermarkt direct aan de overkant. Eten we vanavond “thuis” (in de keuken is alles aanwezig, de koelkast is groot) of toch maar weer bij Don Camillo, het restaurant van de eigenaresse van het appartement? Ligt op 15 meter van de voordeur, de wijn is goed, de koks maken eenvoudige, eerlijke lokale gerechten.

Wij zouden hier zomaar een maand kunnen zitten, bijvoorbeeld om een boek te schrijven...

Praktische tip: parkeer de auto meteen in de grote parkeergarage Porta Catania. Vandaar is het nog geen 5 minuten lopen naar het appartement. Dat scheelt een (stressvolle?) zoektocht door nauwe eenrichtingsstraten!

Appartamento carino ed arredato con gusto

  • 4 of 5

Bella l'ubicazione all'inizio del centro storico (vicinissimo a porta Catania ed al parcheggio multipiano). Molto cortese e disponibile la proprietà (titolare anche di un vicinissimo ristorante)
