We had a wonderful stay in Taormina and would definitely like to return. The apartment was immaculately clean on arrival and there were plenty of towels, bed linen and crockery. The kitchen cupboard was stocked with basic essentials like coffee, sugar, salt etc. too which was handy. The location is wonderful - just behind the main piazza and 5 mins walk from the local supermarket, but this means that the binning of bottles from the neighboring bars and eateries in the early hours, can be very noisy. The main drawback is that there is no balcony or outside seating space with this apartment.

Tv,washing machine,iron with fitted modern kitchen is a bonus.
