Casa Spisone is a perfect holiday house: simply furnished but clean, with DIRECT ACCESS to the BEACH (the beautiful sandy beach of Spisone) and strategically located for exploring Taormina and the Eastern side of Sicily. Casa Spisone is located between Taormina's best seaside Hotels, at just 600 meters from the cable car that ferries tourists to the centre of Taormina and at less then 800 meters from the highway. Etna, golf club, Catania, Messina and many other places to visit distance less then a 30 minute drive.

On the side of the house there is a brook with a pleasant sound of rippling water and all around there are flowers, lemon and palm trees.

Casa Spisone consists of 3 SEPARATE UNITS that are rented all together:

- The first unit consists of a double room with bathroom (toilet, bidet, shower) and a pouf bed.

- The second unit is next-door. It is a bright, spacious room with a double bed, a double sofa bed and a bathroom (toilet, bidet, shower). It also has a big terrace surrounded by trees and flowers.

The first and second units share a kitchen that you can access from the terrace.

- From the terrace stairs lead to the third unit, that consists of a double room with a large shower. Through a small private courtyard you access to the toilet and the kitchen.

You can park your car (or your cars) at the property, in the shadow of a row of tall cypresses.

Casa Spisone is perfect beach house for family groups and friends that want to have a summer holiday together but with more privacy, and it is most enjoyable from May until the first half of October.

Little value for money

  • 1 of 5

We where a family of 4 adults and two small kids in beginng of Oct 2015. The house appeared clean when we arrived and we where meet by the owner at the agreed time. We stayed there for one week. The location of the house is 15 mins walk from the nearest town and 2 min walk from the beach.

Positive: clean house, relative new bathrooms, close to the beach. Relative nice beach with a good restraurant - kids friendly. Close to the lift to Thaomina (15 min. walk). Own parking.

Negative: Bad outline of the house. mould smell inside and outside of the house problably due to the creeck (for waste water) next to the house. The creek was so noisy that we could not sit outside despite the nice temperature - very disappointing and absolutely not relaxing. The kitchen was very old and the ownen was broken. Not a good kitchen to cock meals in. Wine-glass, forks and knifes where not sufficient (no wine glass at all) and in poor conditions. No boiler for hot water.

The owner showed up 15 min later than agreed when we left and he could not speak english.

All-in-all the house cannot be recommended and we didn' t relaxe much due to the noise from the creek, the bad smell, bad outline of rooms and lack of basic appliances in the kitchen - go for another house there are plenty.

Owner's Response: Casa Spisone consists of 3 separate unites joined together by terraces and stairs. It is a simple house but clean. And no, there are no plenty of houses which are as close to the beach of Spisone (the only sandy beach of Taormina) as Casa Spisone! This was already written in the advert, but I hope I made it even clearer now. Next to the house there is a brook which sound has been found relaxing by other guests. I suppose that the heavy rainstorm of this October has temporarily influenced the amount of water flowing and the smell. I have now informed the keyholder about the oven and the kitchen cutlery and he will take action soon. It is true that he only speaks Italian but he is willing and able to help his guests. You just need to ask him and if you have difficulties in communicating with him, you can send him an sms in English.

Haus und Lage entspricht der Beschreibung

  • 4 of 5

Casa Spisone bietet ideale Bedingungen für Familien mit Kindern. Der Garten mit Zitronenbäuen, Eidechsen und Dusche ist ein wahres Paradies, ebenso die Nähe zum Strand. Ein grosser Vorteil ist der Stellplatz für das Auto. Die Aufteilung ist etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig (Küche im Untergesoss), hat aber urigen Charme. Die Küche ist für Leute die viel kochen möchten etwas dürftig eingerichtet. Alles ist in einem sehr sauberen Zustand und der Vermieter und seine Familie sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Sie kümmern sich liebevoll um ihre Gäste. Wir haben uns dort sehr wohlgefühlt.

Tantalizing Taormina!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Spisone direct access to the beach was wonderful. We avoided renting beach chairs at the hotel resorts and instead chose to situate ourselves in the natural cave just next door. It was free and had the added bonus of natural shade, a luxury in the heat of mid day Sicily.

The house was charming and clean. No television, air conditioning or phones, but we and our daughters had no need of any. Evenings are cool and the refreshing breeze off the sea was lovely. A bit of mosquitoes at dusk, but a mosquito trap provided by the owner, worked surprisingly well.

The only draw back was the traffic noise coming from Via Nazionale at night - especially on weekends. We preferred to concentrate on the lull of the bubblingly brook next to the house.

Fresh lemons and oranges on the trees were a wonderful bonus. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay long enough to take advantage of the grape vines!

Excellently situated for day trips to Noto, Castelmola, Siracuse, Enna, Novarra di Sicilia and the like. As mentioned, parking in the Taormina area is a nightmare, so the private parking spot is a welcome luxury. We parked our car at the Funivia as the walk was a bit long for our daughters. Don't try parking in Taormina itself, unless you are a glutton for punishment.

Nice garden and walkway to beach

  • 5 of 5

The house has a lush garden with lemon trees and shaded areas. The private parking was a luxury. From the garden a door leads to a path that comes out on the beautiful bay of Spisone. Just 2 minutes from the house. We rented deck chairs at beach club La Caravella and had great lunches there. We used the cable car to get to the center of Taormina to avoid parking stress. Can't wait to come back here.

Siamo stati benissimo

  • 5 of 5

Casa perfetta per due famiglie. I giusti spazi e tanti terrazzine verde. Lavatrice, lavastoviglie, wi-fi e condizionatore (che non c'è stato bisogno di usare nonostante il caldo perché la casa è molto Fresca).

Spisone (direct path from the house!)
Car: recommended

The location is excellent, in between of Taormina's best seaside Hotels. The house has direct access to the beach. It is just 600 meters from the cable car that ferries tourists to the centre of Taormina and less then 800 meters from the highway. Etna, Golf, Catania, Messina and many other places to visit distance less then a 30 minute drive.

Taormina has been a very popular tourist destination since the 19th century. It has popular beaches on the Ionian sea, which is remarkably warm and has a high salt content. Beautifully restored mediaeval buildings, breathtaking views around every corner and a giddy network of winding streets strewn with shops, bars and restaurants make for a perfect holiday spot. Just south of Taormina is the Isola Bella, a nature reserve and a beautiful bay. Tours of the Capo Sant' Andrea grottos are also available. Taormina is built on an extremely hilly coast, and is approximately a forty-five minute drive away from Europe's largest active volcano, Mount Etna. Many manifestations and events are organized during the summer in Taormina. The exceptional frame for pop and classical concerts, opera and important performances is the Ancient Theatre. Taormina is served by its very own cable car which ferries tourists to and from the seaside resorts down along the coast.

Exploring mount Etna: Giardini Naxos is also an excellent base from which to explore Mount Etna and its surroundings. The villages of Etna, such as Trecastagni, Zafferana Etnea and Randazzo, are famous for their ancient lava flows, the architecture of their seventeenth century churches, their delicious local produce and the hospitality of the villagers. Situated 700 metres above sea level, they are a favourite retreat of the city dwellers who, in summer are in search of cool, fresh air, while in winter are in search of snow for skiing. Few people are aware that Etna is a popular location for skiers in winter. On some glorious days in winter, it’s even possible to ski the frozen slopes in the morning enjoying a wonderful panoramic view of the Mediterranean, and then, the same afternoon, go and sunbathe on the beaches below!
