Great stay in this comfortable apartment. Was just as described. Upstairs in owner's villa with modern newly fitted kitchen, wi fi,tv, dvd player and shower room. The star of the flat is the large terrace with views over the town and to the sea where we enjoyed many a meal. And glass of wine. Perfectly located in quiet part of town but within 10 mins easy walk of Corso Umberto, 15 mins walk to cable car to beach and 20 mins to bus station to pick up any day trips. The owner, Nino was very helpful, took us to town to show us the best places to shop and eat and was always on call should he be needed. Would recommend!

"A nice apartment with great owners and a lovely view"
We stayed as a couple for 3 nights for our honeymoon. The owner Nino was very welcoming and often went out of his way to make our stay more pleasant.
The view onto the sea is very nice and you can appreciate it from the private terrace.
Thanks for a lovely time!

"Breathtaking views. A beautiful apartment"
We were very lucky to stumble upon Villa Aurora. Greeted by Francesca and Nino, we were quickly impressed by the apartment. Francesca even took the time to show us a picture of how this typical Sicilian house stood 100 years ago.
The apartment is perfectly situated away from the busy streets of Taormina and really is just 10 minutes walk from the centre. Well kitted out, the kitchen was modern and the bed comfortable.
Most important of all: the views from the terrace were absolutely breathtaking. Blue seas and the coast of mainland Italy to your left and Taormina to the right.
Thank you so much for reviewing our property! We are so glad you enjoyed you stay. We wish you all the best and hope to welcome you again one day to Villa Aurora Apartment. Tanti saluti from Nino and Francesca
