Make a Taormina accomodation: villas or apartments, your home away from home

Taormina, on the north-eastern coast of Sicily, is nestled on the side of the hill in the Monte Tauro against the backdrop of Mount Etna, Europe’s highest active volcano. Taormina overlooks sweeping bays below, and has been the subject of numerous paintings and photographs, with artists captivated by the resort’s enchanting beauty. Since the first hotel opened in 1874, Taormina has been offering an idyllic getaway to visitors, and as a result there are apartments and villas in Taormina to suit all tastes and budgets.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

It is located in the heart of the historical center, so the position is one of the best of Taormina. Thank to that we could reach everything within a short walk. All the restaurants, bars and the sights are just within immediate proximity. The house is is equipped with everything you need and it is exactly as shown in the pics. It is furnished and decorated with much taste and very clean. The roof terrace offers great views on Mt Etna, on the old town of Taormina and various monuments. The owner was very friendly and helpful giving us many useful tips for our stay. We can really recommend Palazzo Francesca as a perfect place to stay in Taormina. We will certainly return to this place. Maybe next time we will also see Mt Etna erupting from the terrace!!!

                                                                                                      5 of 5

Plenty of storage space, great bathroom, useful kitchen. Fantastic position right above the beach with great views and a lovely little balcony to sit on when sunny. Locally, unfortunately there was not much open as it was out of season but there is a cable car which goes up to Taormina which was very useful if difficult to find. Would recommend this place to stay.

                                                                                                      4 of 5

They left us a bottle of wine and even recommended somewhere to go out for New Years Eve. We were two families - 4 adults, 5 children - so the size of the villa was just about right. Everyone had a bed, and the smallest was on a fold out sofa bed. Major plus points were the pool and the basement level games room with a pool table and pinball machine. The kitchen was also large, but we struggled to get 9 people around the table. It was also a little under equipped if you wanted to cook at home, but a relatively minor point. Spectacular views of Etna every morning were certainly uplifting for the soul, and we were lucky with the weather for the time of year (28 Dec to 4 Jan) with highs of 17 deg and lots of dry weather and sun. The only downsides for the adults were that the beds were in need of an upgrade - new mattresses would sort this easily. Overall, loved the place and the location and can recommend it with a clear conscience.
