The small Palazzo Francesca is one of the very special, rare and typical Sicilian town houses in Toarmina and counts amongst the most beautiful houses in town. This house extends on 5 floors and provides a small roof terrace with spectacular views towards the vulcano Etna, the Grecco theater, as well as the picturesque Taormina.

The town house is situated in a privileged and centrical position of the historical center of Taormina, not far from the Corso Umberto (shopping area), the Piazza IX Aprile, the Villa Communale and the Grecco Theater.

All the sights and bars, restaurants and shops are within reach. A taxi station, the gondola to the sea and the bus station can be reached walking from here.

In 2005 this building had been fully renovated and modernized. The floors and stairs on the interior have been restored in the typical Sicilian red-brown marble. The three bath rooms are designed of bright Botticino marble or hand-painted Sicilian tiles.

Each room has been decorated with lots of care and love for details. The furnishing is complete and of high standard.

Spending time in the living o the 5 th floor is special experience. Through the large panoramic windows you will enjoy fantastic views over the roofs and the small streets of Taormina. The sunset above the vulcano Etna is an unforgettable experience.

The equipment and furnishing come up to highest expectations on quality and taste. The equipment is a mix of modern Italian design and antique French and Sicilian furniture. The tasteful room design is underlined by a special selection of art pictures and lamps made of real Murano glass.

All the living and sleeping rooms are equipped with an efficient air condition system.

Firstly I must say that prior, during and afterwards the owner was very helpful. The location is also great, right in the centre with Restaurants, bars and shops all aroundUnfortunately, the property … More

Dear guest,
thank you for your valuable hints which we appreciate as they will help tp improve. You are right, 2 of the 3 bathrooms are small but unfortunately the web site settings don't allow a different specification than the one we have set.

We will provide a welcome package for future guests to avoid any uncomfortable situation for future guests like the one you have described . As there are 3 small super market and various other small stores within less than 70 meters distance, being open saturday and sundays we assume that no hint is needed.

Our specifications of the standard of the town house refers more to the high quality ambient and expensive furniture rather than to the number of pan and pots in the kitchen, which from my wifes point (being italian) of view are sufficient to cook "everything" except pizza which one eats much better in a pizzeria. However we of course take your comment serious and will add some more pots to give a larger variety and satisfaction.

I don't know if you have noticed that the set of plates are from Armani?

Thank you again for staying in our home ! I hope you had a pleasant stay in Taormina and a good return home.

Best Mike
