About Garufi Virginia

I am British with a Sicilian partner living in the UK..

Garufi Virginia purchased this apartment in 1998

Why Garufi Virginia chose Taormina & Surroundings

I purchased this apartment as i simply fell in love with Taormina. As anyone visiting will find out Taormina is really the Pearl of the Mediterranean Sea, the apartment is perfectly located in the town center but just set back from the main Corso Umberto giving you the best of both worlds, central but just back from the crowds.

What makes this apartment unique

Its this location that means you can if you wish spend your days without a car, walking around the town taking in all the beautiful sights and visiting the Greek Theatre etc. There is cable car to take you down to the beach, its simply breathtaking. There are day trips to be purchased in town, for example to visit Mount Etna or the Aeolian Islands, you will simply never be bored and this on your doorstep.

Central apartment with sunny terrace and excellent facilities

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I travelled from Ireland and booked this apartment based on the central location and facilities.

It has a slightly quirky layout with a lot of steps, but we forgave that as it added to the charm of the apartment and kept us fit 😄

The kitchen and dining area had everything we needed, and more.

From the terrace we could see the Greek ruins, the sea and Mount Enta, which erupted impressively one night while we were there.

Restaurant Casa Niclodi just down the steps from the apartment has an amazing steak with red wine sauce.

We would recommend this apartment to anyone, if you don't mind steps and stairs.

Stylish and comfortable, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, relaxing stay. Virginia is easy to deal with and couldn't have been more helpful. When we arrived the apartment was stunningly clean and we were made to feel very welcome.

The facilities are good, with a comfortable bed and well-equipped kitchen. Sliding patio doors open up almost all of the top floor to the fabulous double-level terrace. We found this a lovely, peaceful place to relax. The sea views aren't unbroken but still great and you can see the Greek theatre in the distance.

The location is superb, less than a minute's walk, down a few steps, to the main street with its multitude of shops, restaurants and bars. There is even a bar right next to the gate below the apartment and a great restaurant just opposite. Despite the central location it is stilll very peaceful and quiet.
