A simply delightful apartment with a wonderful panoramic view
Breakfast on the terrace under orange and lime trees with sweeping views across to Mount Etna. Drinks in the evening watching the sunset and the lights coming on down in the town. The location of this apartment is stunning. With its own private garden and tree-lined terrace, it is very quiet and tranquil. Inside, it is simply furnished, comfortable and has everything you could wish for. Set half way up the hillside, it is about a five minute walk down to the town centre, though it is steep with lots of steps which will certainly keep you fit, especially on the way back up. You can also walk up to the amazing hilltop town of Castelmola in about 30 minutes. All in all, a most perfect apartment in a really beautiful town. Plus, very friendly and helpful owners. Highly recommended.
Perfect hideaway for two
It was our good fortune to stay at this delightful apartment for two with stunning views over Taormina, Giardini Naxos and Mount Etna. We were met by the smiling owner Gianfranco who showed us around. There is a private terrace with a small lawn bounded by pot plants and exotic shrubs - perfect for chilling after a hectic bit of sightseeing. Inside is all you need for a relaxing get away from it all stay - the air conditioned sleeping area is on a mezzanine floor over the kitchen, bathroom and sitting room area which has a ceiling fan for air movement. Previous guests have mentioned the steps down to Corso Umberto and the Greek Theatre and for some this could be an issue. They are quite steep and once was enough for us reasonably fit 68 and 70 year olds. We had a car - again it was so useful to have a secure parking spot at the apartment - and we simply drove down to the multi story carpark at either end of the town and for 7 Euros parked there when we were out for dinner. Gianfranco was a welcoming and friendly host and was always available to contact with any problems -not that we had any. I thoroughly recommend this lovely apartment for a relaxing taste of Taormina.
Taormina is Tops
The apartment is set up high on mountain behind Taormina, itself set high on the mountain. This apartment must have the only private patch of lush green grass in Taormina. It is lovely to feel it on bare feed after a hot day walking around Taormina and many stairs. This apartment also has excellent view of Mount Etna. The apartment itself is spacious and the lounge area is well lit and relaxing.
Gianfranco is a lovely host and picked us up from the Giarre-Naxos train station. Because of this he was able to give us a bit of an orientation tour of Taormina which was helpful.
A stunning setting and a very comfortable stay.
My first impression was stunning as soon as we past through the gates. We have been to Taormina before so new the area pretty well, but this was going to be a very nice place to stay.
Gianfranco meat us at the apartment to welcome us, he is a very nice person and his English is brillant. He showed us around the apartment and upstairs on the roof where the views are stunning. The apartment is very clean and very tidy , I do love the personal effects that are left in the apartment makes it more homely to me. You have just got to have breakfast outside, after a few drinks at night there is nothing better drinking a cuppa looking over the hills and bays below you, then pan left slightly and there it’s is Etna in all its glory. The town is about a 10 min walk down hill or steps , it’s a hard slog back up though.
The ceiling fan is a god send and is not noisy , we kept it on over night and it was fine.
The only thing we found which was a pain and nothing to do with the apartment was the mosquitos so go prepared with bite cream and repellent you will need it.
To sum up. A stunning view from a very nice a quite apartment, clean and tidy and very comfortable.
Beautiful Taormina and lovely accommodation
Loved our stay - Gianfranco was very helpful and welcoming. Lots of steps down to town but kept us fit. Beautiful views from the property and some lovely outdoor space.
Breath taking views
Excellent apartment and well equipped. Host was wonderful and Taormina beautiful. We would go back to this property any time.
E 'can organize sightseeing trips to Mount Etna, the Alcantara Gorges and the Aeolian Islands.
