Saying that this is a well-maintained, quiet, clean property doesn’t give enough credit to the absolutely stunning view of Isola Bella! Giuseppe is a fantastic host. He is very available, helpful, and offered a really wonderful personal touch. Check in and check out were very easy. This is a great place for groups traveling together as two of the ensuite bedrooms are detached.
This property is one of a few dozen condominiums in a complex just 15 minutes walk from the Taormina cable car. The salt water infinity pool (unheated) is refreshing with fantastic views. We enjoyed the private access (rocky entry) to the sea near the blue grotto. Parking was extremely convenient. This was a great base to explore Taormina, Isola Bella, Mt. Etna, the Ortigia, and the southern beaches near Syracuse.
This apartment is perfectly located between Taormina-Giardini train station and Giardini Naxos Beach (10 mins walk, which is a posh area, so accommodation prices are much higher over there). As the train station is also 5 mins away (with the Taormina bus stop), if you don't have a car, then this is again a perfect accommodation for you. There is a bakery and a small grocery shop (a bit expensive though) just 5 mins away.
The apartment is well equipped, 3 people can easily fit in there, the main door faces to the see where the sun comes up, and there's also a back door opening from the bedroom.
The only down point is the lack of wifi, which would be helpful to prepare for next day travels and get other local information (not many people speaks English here), but after all, you came to switch off and relax, so why would you hang on the internet anyway...
We had a lovely holiday in Taormina, and thanks to this apartment, we didn't end up spending a whole fortune on it, so definitely recommend it for everyone, who's planning to have a cost effective holiday. :)
