Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from Sicily having stayed at Antonia's house. Antonia was a wonderful host who went to a great effort to ensure we were thoroughly informed about the house. She welcomed us warmly on arrival and even booked a restaurant for us on our first evening! The house is in a stunning position just as you see in photos, with a short drive to Taormina or 10/15 min walk to the closest beaches.

The house is absolutely immaculate and there is an abundance of kitchen/dining equipment. The house is spacious and the garden is well kept. We are not early birds so missed the limited number of loungers at the pool and the rocks so it may be worth investing in soft mats to lie on. The beaches closest to Taormina are quite busy at this time of year but we found that if we drove another 5/10 mins further on we found quieter stretches with amenities. Thank you so much for taking care of us Antonia!

Stunning location!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time staying in Antonia's beautiful Blue House. The location is to die for with the most stunning views from the garden and swimming pool and Antonia could not have been a more accommodating and delightful host. Thanks Antonia and we are already looking forward to our return

We experienced the most wonderful of family holidays. The villa exceeded all our expectations and our host Antonia presented a beautifully maintained and clean apartment . I would highly recommend for anyone thinking of staying in Taormina to check out this Villa and not hesitate in booking to stay there.

Utopia

  • 5 of 5

*My review is too long will proceed in comments* :')

When we arrived I said “This is one of those holidays that convinces you, you don’t want to experiment anywhere else” (even though obviously, I do- ha ha).

Upon arrival we were punctually, greeted by Antonio, our host, who could have been described as nothing but an angel! Her English was excellent… she gave us a full, detailed tour of our villa and surroundings and even supplied us with bottled water to drink.

Our villa was perfect and contributed to making the holiday exceptionally unforgettable. I stayed with my mom and sister in law so the place can accommodate three; but could easily accommodate 6 even! It is clear Antonio goes out of her way to provide the most ideal holiday stay; the beds and sofas are extremely comfortable, the cleanliness was excellent and the villa is spacious. The character of our villa was also sweet, it features a quaint, little spiral staircase and to each bedroom a balcony. Venturing through the residence/complex was even more of a delight! The infinity pool provided a lot of fun. More so it was so tranquil and peaceful to have a swim and then be able to rest at the edge and watch the ocean, the cliffs surrounding (with their inhabited wildlife) and even a train that SILENTLY, runs underneath buildings!? Even better, was that you discover there are windows like at a sea life centre so you can strike a pose under water and a friend can capture a picture of you! Likewise, the cute little garden of this villa overlooks the most beautiful scene of a vast turquoise sea, where in the middle, sits a little island called Isola Bella (also known as pearl of the Ionian Sea). So… when I thought this place can’t have any more character… the dream state continued. Antonio showed us to a set of astonishing white and grey steps that lead down to a private section where we spent most of the holiday! There are convenient adjustable deck chairs, lovely showers and salt water is pumped from the ocean to the swimming pool! Lily, mom and myself could not be more delighted. You step off of the welcoming, warm, rocky surface and are greeted into the clearest water with lots of fishies! And next door is a cave that the locals call the mermaid cave due to old tales .

Moreover, not only were we lucky to find a perfect villa, it had the perfect location too with plenty of nice things to do.

Felt like home for a memorable family holiday

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I first communicated with Antonia, the host, I knew I had found the right place for our family holiday.

She is attentive, a details person, warm, generous and speaks great English (even though she will try to persuade you otherwise).

The villa is split into zones which made it perfect for the three adult couples in our family. Each couple had their own private zone and bathroom meaning no one had to share a bathroom or disturb anyone in the night or morning.

The one bedroom not in the main house is accessed by a separate door off the central corridor and has its own sitting room and bathroom downstairs and a loft sleeping area. The only small challenge with this setup is that drying anything is difficult so it's best to take towels outside or to the roof to make them very dry. But it's a small hassle to stay in such a welcoming home.

One double bedroom looked out to the sea and my parents enjoyed it very much - it has heavy shutters to block out the sun, too.

The kitchen is well equipped to cook meals which we did several times and enjoyed them immensely.

The back porch and garden are also spacious, and there is plenty of space for everyone.

The pool is not heated and loses the sun about 2pm but there is a beach only a short walk away, the famous Isola Bella.

Bring beach towels and a portable wifi for researching day trips and restaurants and you're all set for a memorable week.

Antonia lives next door and was the perfect balance of attentive host but also left us space and privacy to enjoy the trip with our family given we had not all been together for many months.

The location means a car is highly recommended although you can get by without if you rely on buses, cable car and taxis. But Antonia provides parking so it's definitely more convenient to have a car.

After bypassing more luxurious villas in favour of Antonia's Blue House, I can honestly say we made the right choice. She even gave us little thank you gifts when we departed, including a special token for my mother, whose 60th birthday we were there to celebrate. We will never forget our first trip to Sicily thanks to Antonia and her lovely holiday house.

A Memorable Stay

  • 5 of 5

A comfortable clean condominium with a magnificent sea cove view. Excellent location, great parking and is walking distance to shops and restaurants. Extraordinary community swimming pool with sea access.

Antonia the owner was polite, professional and very helpful. She made our stay very memorable. This part of Sicily is fantastic to visit and there are several day trips that can be based from here.

Taormina is a town of 11 078 inhabitants in the province of Messina in Sicily. It is one of the most important international tourist centers of Sicily for its enchanting natural landscape, the beautiful sea and its historical monuments. Its territory covers a terrace of Monte Tauro, along the coast from Capo Sant'Andrea to Capo Taormina, between the Ionian Sea with its beautiful beaches and the mountains Peloritani, that surround it to the north and west.

Routes and places to visit in Taormina:

The city of Taormina is easily accessible by car, taxi, bus or cable car, whose station is a 10 minute walk.

Taormina, undisputed 'pearl of the Ionian', stands on a promontory called Monte Tauro to 205 m above sea level. From Taormina you can admire one of the most fascinating clippings on the east coast, the northern side of Mount Etna and the Bay of Naxos Schisò.

The GREEK THEATRE, dating from the third century. a. C., is the splendid setting of cultural events promoted by international prestige 'Taormina art'.

Other monuments are hosted by the Ionian town:

The ODEON, a small theater made of clay bricks and desired by the Emperor Octavian,

Naumachie, the oldest building, an imposing wall dating back to the first century. a. C., characterized by numerous niches that held statues of the deities of the time,

THE OLD ABBEY, a building of the '300 in the Gothic style, is emphasized by a fortress battlements overlooking the construction,

THE PALACE OF THE DUKE SANTO STEFANO, a fortress of plans by the magnificent mullioned windows,

THE PALACE CORVAJA, which stands in the square Abbey, is the most important medieval building in the city and brings together the styles Arabic, Gothic and Norman, a sign of three different cultures dominating the city,

THE CHURCH OF SAN Pancrazio (Patron of the city) and the beautiful church of the SANCTUARY OF OUR LADY OF THE ROCK.

Another gem is the VILLA CITY, originally the private garden of the English aristocrat Florence Trevelyan preserving rare plants grown from it and the original buildings like Chinese pagodas that reflect the character of the extravagant woman.

The elegant pedestrian street, Corso Umberto, which crosses the city from Porta a Porta Catania Messina, and alleys, offer a typical stroll through the boutiques of the most famous international brands, antique dealers, jewelers, Caltagirone ceramics shops and much more.

For lovers of taste, along Corso Umberto, you can buy several regional food and wine products such as cannoli with ricotta cheese and pistachio and almond wine. at the end of the course is Piazza IX Aprile overlooked by the Church of St. Augustine, the church of St. Joseph and the Porta di Mezzo with the picturesque Clock Tower; this square, which enjoys an amazing viewpoint, is filled with trendy outdoor cafes and hangouts.
