Overview

About the property

Apartment in Taormina, Sicily, Italy - A Peaceful Location, Close Enough To Taormina Center To Enjoy All That Is On Offer

Apartment is newly built and located in an amazing hillside position in Taormina. Offering unrivaled panoramic views of Mount Etna, the Bay of Naxos and Mainland Italy. A holiday apartment that offers that little bit more, it's the extra touches that often make all the difference. Head to the center of cosmopolitan Taormina and its main street ‘Corso Umberto’ and you will be overwhelmed by historical architecture, designer boutiques, pavement cafes, wonderful restaurants and beautiful piazza’s. Located in the upper part of Taormina, this favorable position is close enough to Taormina's historical center (approx. 800m, a 15 minute walk downhill) to enjoy all that is on offer in this bustling resort, but far enough away to enable you to escape the noise and the crowds and enjoy some rest and relaxation in a perfect setting.

About Ms Virginia Garufi

Hi, my name is Virginia and i am the property manager at Villa Virginia apartments. I am Sicilian, living in England... and with the help of family and friends i manage Villa Virginia.

The property is owned by John Oddi who is based in London. John fell in love with Taormina many years ago and decided to build himself a place of his own in what has to be one of the most amazing locations within the resort.

We hope that you choose to book with us, we offer a great location and an excellent value for money apartment.

Guestbook comments from the manager

March 2012: Mr and Mrs Johnson, Leeds: We are so glad we chose your apartment, the location and views were fantastic.

April 2012: Miss Sykes, Miss Woodhouse, London: Great that car parking was included, nowhere to park in Taormina and the multi-story car parks cost a small fortune.

April 2012: Mr Naylor, Ms Doherty, Ireland: Views out of this world, brand new apartments - beds so comfortable - good value for money.

Above the bustle

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is very clean and tidy and has everything you require. It is quiet with a good view out towards Mount Etna. We were welcomed warmly and Virgina and her mother couldn’t have been more helpful. Having a secure garage for the car was a real bonus. being out of the centre of Taormina was also a good move though the lack of any local facilities apart from a very good restaurant was a slight drawback. This was countered by a good and mostly reliable hourly bus service into town. Driving on the switchback road up and down into town is not for the faint-hearted but somehow the buses manage it. The beaches are good down beyond Taormina and up the hill, Castelmola is also definitely worth a visit with good restaurants - much quieter than Taormina itself.

Fantastic views of Mt Etna, clean & modern

  • 4 of 5

The best things about this villa were it's fantastic views of Mt Etna and the Sea. The property itself was modern well maintained and very clean (thanks to the lovely Pina!) The walk up from Taormina kept us fit but for those less active there is a regular bus service. There is a great Restaurant only a few minutes walk (almost level!) away. Castelmola is stunning and just a few hundred metres above the apartment with more restaurants and an interesting themed bar! - enjoy!!

Excellent property, no down-sides for us.

  • 5 of 5

Virginia's Mum is a charming lady and was as the property to meet us and explain everything when we arrived from the airport.

The terrace garden is fantastic, south facing with unbeatable views of Mount Etna, lovely to lie out on sun beds in late afternoon sunshine after a day out.

Everything worked in the apartment, no problems.

Car parking is secure, so could leave things safely in the car for excursions.

We enjoyed the walks down to Taormina and back again, but if you don't fancy the climb, regular buses stop close to the apartment.

Beautiful apartment and stunning views of Etna

  • 5 of 5

The property is in an excellent position for views of Etna and the sea. There is secure parking in a garage underneath the property. The apartment was spotlessly clean and the best equipped of any of the places we stayed in during our stay in Sicily, including the provision of washing up liquid, cloths and a good selection of pans. There is also a washing machine. We stayed as a family of four and there was ample room.

The walk to Taormina is down a lot of steps (and hence back up again) it was about 15 minutes down, maybe 30 minutes back up, we found this good exercise, although there are buses on the Verde line that you can catch. These take about ten minutes.

Virginia was excellent, replying to emails quickly and available by phone. Her mother showed us the apartment and we spoke to Virginia on her mothers phone to confirm everything.

It was an excellent stay.

Lovely apartment with spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

Villa Virginia is a lovely apartment in an ideal location, with amazing views of the sea and Mount Etna. The apartment was very clean and spacious with the added advantage of good parking facilities. The manager (Virginia) was very helpful and made sure that we settled in comfortably. After we'd been delayed at the airport on arrival, she even made arrangements at our request with the local restaurant al Saraceno (which is just a walk away from the apartment). We highly recommend this apartment and would definitely return given the opportunity.
