This is a hidden gem
What a great apartment!!. Terrace overlooking the small square. Roomy 1 bedroom. Very clean and well appointed. Close to grocery store and laundry service. Buses run every half hour into Taormina or Mazzaro'. Letojanni is a hidden gem because it is a 5 min bus ride to one of the biggest tourist cities in Sicily and it is about 1/3 the cost. We had dinner in a beachfront restaurant with wine for about the same price as we paid for lunch in Taormina. The biggest bonus is Carmen. She picked us up at the train, gave us a quick tour through town, and drove us to the train when we left. This was my first time using homeaway in Europe...I would definitely stay again, I would definitely recommend this place to family and friends. If you are considering this apartment JUMP ON IT. Before someone else does.
Very specialy guest .
I am very glad meet you .
Thank you for review
A Perfect Stay, A Perfect Hostess
Allow my to start off by saying that Carmen was the perfect hostess!!! So kind, very helpful and available if required. She picked me up from the train station, escorted me to the apartment and showed me around. Explained wi-fi (password) the garbage schedule, and how to use the washing machine (settings etc). Suggested restaurants and bars near by, places to visit, helped me book tours, with directions...I can't say enough about her. I was truly treated like royalty.
The apartment itself was perfect. Upon arrival, it was spotless! It had all of the amenities that one would require including towels, linens, beach umbrellas and laundry facilities. Very nicely decorated and spacious. There were toiletries in the bathroom which was a nice touch. Balcony was gorgeous!! Overlooks a small square, street and mountains. Bedroom was large with plenty of storage (for clothing etc). Bathroom was perfect -- the shower/toilet is separated by a door from the sink and mirror (which is great). Kitchen is equipped with everything (espresso maker, stove, microwave, dishes, pots and pans etc.). Wi-fi was perfect (fast and strong connection).
The location was marvelous. Within a 5 minute walk, you will find restaurants, bars, banks, hair salon, nail salon, grocery store, bakery, souvenir shops, butcher shop, fruit/vegetable shops, bus stop, beach, post office, church and a pharmacy. There is also a hotel across the street which is a good reference point for taxis etc. The employees there are fantastic! I had booked tours thru them and they were more than helpful!
I enjoyed every minute of my stay. Grazie Carmen!!!
A la prossima!!
Lovely Holiday Apartment
We stayed in the apartment for 6 nights at the beginning of June and had a wonderful holiday.The apartment was exactly as pictured. It was very clean and fitted with everything we needed: towels, sun shade, coffee maker etc.
We especially loved the balcony, which was perfect for breakfast and taking an aperitivo in the evening.
The location of the apartment is great, just a short stroll to the beach and the center of Letojanni with its many restaurants and bars.
Carmen, the owner, was extremely helpful: she picked us up from the bus stop in Taormina on our arrival and gave us tips on which local foods to try and which sites were worth visiting.
Letojanni is a great base to visit Sicilian's Ionian Coast - it is not quite as busy and crowded as Taormina (at least when we were there at the beginning of June!), but there is a bus connection to all the major sites like Isolabella, Mount Etna, Gole Alcantara.
All in all, we had such a lovely time in Carmen's apartment in Letojanni and would definitely recommend staying there!
Grazie , thank you .
Thank you for review and
for as you have taken care of the apartment .
Lovely apartment, great location
The apartment is very beautiful, tastefully furnished and well equipped (air conditioning, kitchen equipment etc.). The size is perfect for 2-3 people. From the balcony you get a glimpse of the sea and a wonderful view on the mountains on the other side. The location is great, just a few steps away from the beach (coarse sand but crystal clear, blue water; sometimes jelly fish are a problem), many sea side restaurants, supermarket, bakery etc. are close by. We traveled without car and there was no need for it, as there is a train station and buses running tolerably frequently. Carmen the owner is extremely friendly and very helpful. Thanks, we had a great time!
Dear My guest ,thank you for chose one of my apartement ,I am very gla Imeet you .
Thank you for your review .
My husband and I stayed in Zagara apartment at the end of July for a week. Zagara was exactly as the description. The apartment was well furnished with individual pieces that had been chosen to complement it's individual style. My favourite piece was the chandelier in the kitchen. Some of the furniture was quite old but for me that added to the character.
The balcony was very pretty and great for 'people watching'. Each morning the main street was a busy hive of activity with fruit, veg and fish sellers. The supermarkets were all well stocked as was Carmen's kitchen that had everything needed to make some lovely meals. The shopkeepers that I spoke to were helpful and helped me to understand how to cook and eat some of the vegetables that I hadn't seen before.
Letojanni is a good base for the area. A short stroll to the beach and a good selection of bars and restaurants, each one having a perfect setting for your evening meal overlooking the sea and moonlight.
It is very easy to visit Taormina, just a short cheap bus ride. The buses are good and run until one o'clock in the morning in high season so you can have evenings there too.Taormina is beautiful but expensive. We were a bit disappointed when one of the waiters tried to con us with the price of the beer. But this can happen anywhere and certainly didn't put us off visiting again.
Carmen was a lovely lady. She had said she would pick us up at the bus station in Giardini but we got off at the wrong one (there are 2). But using my broken Italian and her broken English she managed to find us and take us to Zagara. She had given us a lovely bowl of 8 big juicy peaches that she had picked from her fruit garden. We could contact her at any time. She picked us up at the end of the week and took us to the (correct) bus stop for the bus back to the airport.
Many travel guides don't tell you that there is a train station at Letojanni where you can get regular trains to some good places. We didn't discover it till the end of the week so didn't use it. Most guides only indicate that there is a station at Giardini Naxos.
I have visited a few Italian places but Sicily has definatly been my favourite. I hope to back in the future and would readily go back to Letojanni and to Carmen's lovely apartments.
Dear My guest .
Thank you for your chose about my holiday aparrtement .
I hope you understand the Sicily .Is different of the Italy is a mix of culture and the hot temperature this years is a problem .
Thank you Carmen
We stayed 1 week in the apartment Zagara.
It was very clean, perfectly equipped & exactly like on photos.
No surprises at all except.... The fresh fruits from Carmen's garden, waiting for us on the table!
Carmen welcomed us and spent some time with us recommending the places to visit and the restaurants to go.
Needless to say that with such a start the week was perfect.
Each single breakfast on the balcony with Italian coffee maker was a pure moment of happiness.
Thank you Carmen for your great accommodation!
