I am originally from Munich Germany but am living in Taormina since many years. Once you come to Taormina you will experience the mystic spirit this place has. Once experienced it's hard to return home so I decided to simply stay in one of the most beautiful places I know. I degreed in Germany in economics and in engineering and gained my Phd in Austria. I work since many years in the information technology business which gives me the opportunity to work "where my computer is" . Being married with an italian I love cooking and enjoying live in its best way. I am looking forward to welcome you in one of our special places!
Mike purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Mike chose Taormina
I have fully restored this apartment in 2017 and it gets renovated each year . It is located in the historic city center of Taormina, in a quiet area but still everything can be reached within walking distance. There is a supermarket in front of the condo. Being located on the 5th (last) floor of an apartment building it has a unique position. being a penthouse type apartment it has a large terrace and several balconies which offer a spectacular views on the bay of Taormina, the beaches of Giardini Naxos, the landscape of Calabria and the old town of Taormina. Air condition in all three bed rooms From the living room you have an impressing view on vulcano Mt Etna and can watch the eruptions from a secure distance. Most of the very best restaurants of Taormina can be reached within a short walk.

Taormina is magical. The location of the property is close to the city center, but know that there are many steps/hills to go down -this is just the nature of Taormina. The “5 flights of stairs” has over 50 steps so not for the faint of heart, but my elderly mother managed them each day! The apartment is spacious and we enjoyed the back terrace with a great view of the town’s landscape and small, but awesome view of the sea. The actual complex is in need of landscaping and maintenance, but the apartment itself is nice and clean. The bathrooms were great, and one is especially large. A/C worked great and Roberto was always available when we had questions.
Great stay - worth the workout up the hill
The penthouse suite is the best, so after wandering up the hill from town, the 80 steps (9 flights) is worth it for the aircon and the view. Lovely terrace. Lots of help to settle in.
... 9 flights.. great humor :-)
I am very happy you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for staying in my home.
All me best Mike
Ideal for our family of 7
We fell in love with Taormina! This apartment was ideal for our size of family. Roberto greeted us and helped us with our luggage. He explained each detail do the apartment and provided travel tips. We had plenty of room to spread out. Air conditioning, washing machine and hot water showers all worked perfectly. It was a nice pleasant walk to the main shopping strip. The supermarket across the street was convenient for breakfast and lunch items to eat in the apartment which saved on eating our costs.
Great stay in a spacious apartment with awesome views and just minutes from the main area. Roberto was awesome getting us checked in. Would recommend
Great apartment with stunning views
This apartment is modern, spacious and well cared for. The balconies provide beautiful views, although Etna was covered in cloud when we were there. It’s a little out of the main part of town so you can escape the hustle and bustle of Corso Umberto and feel like you are living like a true Sicilian. It does mean an uphill walk on the way back though, but it is more than manageable.
Roberto was really helpful at check in, even bringing someone along to help carry the cases up the stairs. It would be great if the elevator could get fixed!
We also received really good information before the holiday so were fully prepared. All in all a great base for a stay in beautiful Taormina.
Beautiful views in great location
This apartment is so well located for a short walk down into the beautiful main streets of old Taormina. Almost every room in this flat has a balcony - even one of the bathrooms - with views towards the sea, hills and Etna.
We enjoyed a week in Taormina - so many things to do within the town and also within a one hour drive we did not have time to do everything we would have liked to have done.
Michael's local written information was very useful as was Roberto who met us outside the apartment block and gave us some interesting tips for where to go during our week including a fantastic trip we took to the summit of Mount Etna with Etna Wild.
We would love to return. Our two teenage daughters loved it all too. Sicily is a beautiful and interesting place and staying in Michael's flat gave us a great introduction to this island.
