The Sicily region

Based on the largest island in the Mediterranean (Sicily) Taormina is based along a beautiful coastline located halfway between Catania and Messina and in the shadow of Etna -, Sicily’s majestic volcano towering at over 3300 metres. . Taormina is located on a plateau above the beaches but easily accessible by cable car( funivia)

If you have not been to Taormina before you may have read how it has been described as ‘the getaway to paradise’. Goethe wrote how Taormina and Sicily were , for him, ‘a strip of paradise on the earth’. You can explore Taormina’s winding medieval streets and tiny secret passages. Or watch the world go by whilst enjoying an aperitif outside one of the charming bars in Taormina’s Corso Umberto – Taormina’s pedestrians –only main street.

Our apartments are ideally located a short walk from central Taormina boasting beautiful views across the Straights of Messina. Or take the 10 minute stroll to the cable car which will take you right onto the local beaches.Taormina’s Farmer’s and Fisherman’s market is only a few minutes away – so if you fancy living and cooking just like the locals here is your chance! During the summer months Taormina even has a famous amphitheatre from where classical and contemporary concerts are held. So there is no shortage of things to do and see and no shortage of Taormina’s beaches and venues for that all important relaxation!
