Great location, but the house itself left us wanting

  • 1 of 5

The house promises a lot but actually delivers little more than a nice patio and a great location.

To start with, I had arranged to meet the owner in Taormina at a designated time, but we couldn't get a hold of her for an hour or so after I started trying. When I finally did make contact (on WhatsApp, no less), she arranged for a local friend to acquaint us with the house. Frustratingly, though, this person spoke no English, and my Italian comprises little more than the odd 'buongiorno' and whatnot. So what she was telling us I have no idea.

I had originally made the reservation explaining that we were a party of four adults, and the listing advertised four bedrooms to accommodate this. But not the case. Three adults can sleep more or less comfortably in three of the rooms on the ground floor, but the fourth room is an attic loft with a bed that can barely handle a toddler. And since it's at the top of the house, the heat (at least this time of year) is too much for a good night's rest even if the bed weren't an issue. Point is, your situation needs to be OK with that fourth bedroom being unusable in the summer by anyone, and unusable at all other times by an adult.

The worst part? The owner made no attempt to rectify this. She told me that she had just assumed we were two couples, and that it wouldn't be an issue. When I pressed back and asked why I'd book a four bedroom villa for two couples I received no response. Very frustrating.

The three of us who ended up with the 'normal' bedrooms had to subsidize our fourth member who refused to pay his fourth for the loft. So this situation cost us all either monetarily or sleep-wise.

What I liked: the location. Amazing. And the patio was nice for relaxing in the afternoons when it was too hot to roam the town. What I didn't like: the listing promises amenities like AC, internet, four bedrooms, etc. There's one AC unit in the middle of the house, but it was too weak to make any difference for the bedrooms in the lower and upper floors. The 'internet' is actually a cafe down a nearby alley. And I've already described the issue with the the bedrooms.

The house is jam-packed with old, cluttering furniture and kitchy knick-knacks. I can't think of a surface that wasn't covered in them. So if that sort of thing doesn't bother you, and you can live with a loose interpretation of the amenities listed, then you'll otherwise enjoy its proximity to all that Taormina has to offer.

Beautiful, central ancient villa!

  • 5 of 5

This dream villa is three levels with a fantastic rooftop patio. It was immaculate and well-equipped, exactly as described, with plenty of space in a very central location. Corso Umberto, Teatro Greco, restaurants and grocery stores are just a short walk away. There is also a lovely wifi cafe across the road and down a couple of steps to enjoy an aperitivo whilst checking your email.

We also cooked in the kitchen and ate al fresco on the patio enjoying the warm Taormina evenings. I would recommend this villa as it so accessible to the sites and beaches of Taormina plus very convenient to the bus stops and taxi stands. I have stayed in a number of residences on my travels and this has to be one of my favourites. I hope to return one day! The host was extremely helpful with every request and made us feel at home. Mille Grazie!

A very nice place, ideally located

  • 5 of 5

We definitely enjoyed our stay in Villa Margherita. It's very easy to feel at home in this lovely villa. Ideally located in the centre of Taormina, access to everything. Recommend for a family or two couples.

Perfect Taormina experience!

  • 5 of 5

Margherita and Katya were perfect hosts and made sure we knew all about the house and the area. Located very close to Curso Umberto as we were able to walk everywhere in town. Would definitely stay here again!

Soggiorno meraviglia

  • 5 of 5

Villa Margherita è davvero accogliente e meravigliosa. Siamo stati come a casa nostra. In pieno centro con una grande terrazza e un attiguo giardino. La signora Margherita ci ha accolto con grande calore e si è mostrata una splendida e solare padrona di casa.

Consigliatissima a chi vuole vivere tutta la magia di Taormina.
