About Karen Cacopardo

My name is Karen, I am from the north of England where I spent 15 years working for a chain of luxury hotels. My husband and I relocated to Sicily in July 2007, we married locally and created The Lemon Tree, a collection of fully equipped holiday apartments within a gated community. We are also destination wedding planners.

Karen Cacopardo purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Karen Cacopardo chose Taormina & Surroundings

Sicily is a stunning island offering amazing scenery, fantastic history and great food and wine. Taormina is a hidden gem with its traditional piazza's and local restaurants, you can spend hours wandering around the narrow cobbled streets, visit the botanical gardens or people watch from the main Corso Umberto soaking up the wonderful Sicilian life.

What makes this apartment unique

Whilst staying at The Lemon Tree you will experience the luxury of a personal touch with attention to detail. As you will see by our 180+ reviews on Trip Advisor. We thrive on offering a friendly relaxed ambience coupled with a home from home feel.

Both fluent in Italian and English, we can assist you with all of your requirements: excursions, restaurant table booking, home cooked food, travel planning and any other issue that could arise throughout your stay. Paola (our housekeeper) is also on hand to replenish your laundry and bedlinen as and when required and generally keep The Lemon Tree running at full steam.
