About Garufi Virginia
I am British with a Sicilian partner living in the UK..
Garufi Virginia purchased this Apartment in 1998
Why Garufi Virginia chose Taormina
I purchased this apartment as i simply fell in love with Taormina. As anyone visiting will find out Taormina is really the Pearl of the Mediterranean Sea, the apartment is perfectly located in the town center but just set back from the main Corso Umberto giving you the best of both worlds, central but just back from the crowds.
What makes this Apartment unique
Its this location that means you can if you wish spend your days without a car, walking around the town taking in all the beautiful sights and visiting the Greek Theatre etc. There is cable car to take you down to the beach, its simply breathtaking. There are day trips to be purchased in town, for example to visit Mount Etna or the Aeolian Islands, you will simply never be bored and this on your doorstep.

Wonderful apartment with views from the balcony
Fantastic location. Extremely comfortable and clean apartment with amazing views from the balcony. We had breakfast outside on the balcony every morning. The apartment is well equipped and Virginia was very helpful and accommodating. There is a great restaurant at the bottom of the steps near the entrance to the apartment with delicious food and very friendly and delightful staff.
Lovely apartment and location.
The apartment was very comfortable, it was clean and contained everything needed for a relaxed stay. The view from the spacious terrace was stunning, the sea, Mt Etna and the Greek amphitheatre. The apartments location was very central just a stroll away from the main, pedestrian friendly,thoroughfare the 'Corso Umberto' . There are plenty of excellent places to eat , to drink, to shop within a few minutes walk from the apartment, including a lovely Cafe just next door with very friendly and helpfull staff, 'Ricardo' speaks English and is both charming and informative. People in general were very friendly and helpfull and the apartment s owner Virginia is very responsive when contacted. We highly reccommend Taormina as a destination and this apartment in particular as a place to explore the area from. However,their are many steps both within the apartment and outside in the locality, so a reasonable level of fitness is required. As regards eating out we would recommend the following reasonable priced places. Francos and Da Cristina for lunch,both do excellent arancini and other local specialities, Da Cristina also does great takeaway.For evening meals the Trattoria Tiramisu, for Pizza the Pizzeria Villa Zuccaro, the Cafe next door is also good, but the choices are endless. There are also many places within the town and surrounding area to explore much of which is ancient, interesting and very beautiful. Thank you Virginia and Scily for your hospitality.
Central apartment with sunny terrace and excellent facilities
My wife and I travelled from Ireland and booked this apartment based on the central location and facilities.
It has a slightly quirky layout with a lot of steps, but we forgave that as it added to the charm of the apartment and kept us fit 😄
The kitchen and dining area had everything we needed, and more.
From the terrace we could see the Greek ruins, the sea and Mount Enta, which erupted impressively one night while we were there.
Restaurant Casa Niclodi just down the steps from the apartment has an amazing steak with red wine sauce.
We would recommend this apartment to anyone, if you don't mind steps and stairs.
Absolutely gorgeous, will definitely come back!
Perfect service from start to finish from Virgina and Pina, beautiful apartment in fantastic location.
Stylish and comfortable, perfect location
We had a wonderful, relaxing stay. Virginia is easy to deal with and couldn't have been more helpful. When we arrived the apartment was stunningly clean and we were made to feel very welcome.
The facilities are good, with a comfortable bed and well-equipped kitchen. Sliding patio doors open up almost all of the top floor to the fabulous double-level terrace. We found this a lovely, peaceful place to relax. The sea views aren't unbroken but still great and you can see the Greek theatre in the distance.
The location is superb, less than a minute's walk, down a few steps, to the main street with its multitude of shops, restaurants and bars. There is even a bar right next to the gate below the apartment and a great restaurant just opposite. Despite the central location it is stilll very peaceful and quiet.
10 minute walk to the cable car, and a further 5 minute walk to the first beach, and there are many beaches to consider.
The nearest airport is Catania and is only about 40 minutes by car. If you hire a car it can be parked in one of the town car parks but the car will likely only be used if you elect to travel around Sicily as the apartments location means a car is not required. Give consideration to a driving free holiday as it may be simpler to take a taxi to and from the airport which we can assist you with.
