Beautiful and classy apartment in the center of the action.

  • 5 of 5

The Two Griffins #5 apartment was perfect for us. I was traveling with my adult son and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The apartment was wonderfully located a stone's throw from Taormina's city gate, a portal to its historical treasures, shops, cafes, hotels, and restaurants. The apartment is stylishly designed with modern furniture and lighting and gorgeous marble floors. The owner, Vincenzo, was very helpful and took care to see that the apartment was equipped with basic food needs. There were several restaurants, a grocer, and a baker within a few hundred feet who satisfied additional food cravings. Only one thing would have made the experience better - we would have wished for additional towels in the bathroom - one towel per person for three days was a bit slim - but that is a small complaint for staying in such a lovely venue in a stunning hill town overlooking the Ionian Sea.

Lovely Apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is perfect for a visit to Taormina it is as pictured on the website and Vincenzo the owner is very helpful. The cable car to Isla bella and bus station are within a 5 minute walk if you wish to venture further afield. The walk to the Main Street of Taormina is less than 60 seconds. This apartment is at the rear of the building and hence quiet in the night , this is important as Taormina is very very busy , the downside of this is that the balcony looks out onto a courtyard not the town or sea.

Overall this is the best property I have ever stayed in from owners direct and I would strongly recommend staying here if visiting Taormina.

Thanks Vincenzo.

This is an ideal flat in Taormina - located within easy walking of the places of interest

  • 5 of 5

The flat was modern, good quality and ideally placed. We parked in Lumbi car park and took the free shuttle bus which stops right outside the flats. We had flat 5 which is at the back of the building and therefore quiet, overlooking little gardens and other homes. The equipment and arrival pack was extremely useful and Vincenzo was helpful and kind. We recommend his wife's almonds in sugar!!! Taormina is a lovely place to stay and we didn't use the car at all which was lovely.

Fabulous Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time! Vincenzo greeted us at the door and showed us around his property. The residence is modern, sleek, and clean, a very short walk fro the cable car to the beach and the main street for shopping. We were in town for a wedding. We had friends staying in another unit of his unit below us that forgot the cake topper! We contacted him last minute, not only did he verify it was in the room, but he walked it to the reception because he is THAT AWESOME! I highly recommend this apartment. It was simply wonderful. We will be back!

best for family

  • 5 of 5

If you have only one week in Sicily and plan to stay in Taormina so this apartment is for sure amid the best option you could have settled. Two steps to the market with fresh fruits and vegetables, one snap to bakery save you time and give huge taste and people experience. Really new furniture in renovated flat all in place you need gives you chance to start relaxing immediately as if you know this place for the long time. We celebrated my wife's Birthday within this week and what we dreamed about we got in full, Many thanks to the Owner Vincenzo and his wife. Right choice of the apartment and location where it is closed by the old town and sea did our journey fantastic.

Tolle Wohnung in Top - Lage mit traumhafter Dachterasse. Sehr netter und hilfsbereiter Vermieter!

  • 5 of 5

Tolle Wohnung in Top - Lage mit traumhafter Dachterasse. Zimmer und Bäder sind sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Zur Altstadt ist es nur ein Steinwurf weit und ein Supermarkt und Bäcker sind direkt nebenan. Sehr netter und hilfsbereiter Vermieter! Würde ich jederzeit wieder buchen!
