Very Good


Reviewed 29 Apr 2017

We have just returned from a really lovely week in Taormina. We booked this apartment for my 50th birthday, always wanted to go to Italy, and wow it was amazing!!! Virginia, I have only contacted through e-mail, but is amazing too. From first contact with her she was so lovely always offering to help you in any way. We arrived greeted by Virginia's mother, who too was so lovely, showed us all we needed to know. Virginia and john had left a card with birthday wishes, cake, present and a bottle of prosecco for me, which was such a lovely unexpected surprise. The apartment was absolutely perfect, so close to everything you could wish for, yet away enough so you don't have any noise bliss!!!!! And the views, stunning !!! everything you can want from Taormino, mount Etna to the right , gorgeous sea views in front and the ancient Greek theatre to the left absolutely stunning. You can not visit Taormina without visiting these places. Thankyou once again Virginia for making booking our trip so easy and stress free. Would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone and most definitely would love to go back.

I would have rated this apartment a 5-star, except for one major issue... the wooden stairs up to the kitchen and lounge/patio level is seriously dangerous, as currently installed. Very steep, narrow and potentially slippery, you have to navigate really carefully holding on at all times, in case you lose your footing. Entirely unsuitable for children or elderly guests... why they did not simply install a circular staircase is beyond me. Every other aspect was excellent, superb decor and furniture, spotlessly clean, air con, nice bedrooms, good kitchen, etc, such a great pity about the stairs. On that basis we would certainly not stay there again, nor would we recommend to others

“Perfect holiday getaway”

Reviewed 9 Jun 2013

We can only agree with the comments written by the other holidaymakers. Everything went smoothly from our initial booking to our departure. The villa was very clean and well presented. What was surprising was that the villa was about 3 minutes away from the centre of Taormina but it was so peaceful too - the best of both worlds. We catered in for the most part and the kitchen was well equipped with full oven, hob and microwave plus a dishwasher to help clear away. We have many happy memories of sitting on the terrace in the evenings with views of the Agean and Mount Etna just before the sun set. We thought Sicily was a beautiful Island and enjoyed Taormina with the town, beaches and walks; so much to see and do. We would recommend this lovely holiday residence without hesitation.

“Lovely apartment in excellent location”

Reviewed 21 May 2013

Myself and my husband spent 10 days in this lovely apartment situated in the heart of Taormina, just off Corso Umberto. It is decorated in typical Sicilian style with all modern comforts. It is spotlessly clean and well maintained. Has iron, hairdryer, washing machine, dishwasher etc. Virginia (manager) kept in touch with us constantly to check everything was ok and we met her mother who takes care of the cleaning and change of bed linen. She didnt speak Italian but was charming and Virginia was only a phone call away to translate if necessary. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. We can honestly say it was one of the best apartment rentals we ever experienced. Taormina is stunningly beautiful and this apartment is well placed to walk to all the restaurants/sights etc. Cant wait to stay here again.

“Perfect rental”

Reviewed 18 May 2013

I am somewhat sceptical of reviews, but when I say this is an excellent property to stay in, it genuinely is! The location in Taormina is first-class if you like to be in a central position. You have the advantage of everything being 'on the doorstep' - right on the doorstep, and yet we were in no way disturbed by noise. Taormina being pedestrianised does not present the usual inconveniences associated with traffic. The car parking is not cheap, but the price is well worth paying. The property itself is exquisite. The views from the balcony (generous size) are wonderful - the sea directly ahead, Etna to the right and the Greek Theatre to the left. The fixtures and fittings are all top-quality and everything is immaculately clean and in perfect working order. The contact with the owners is first-rate and to find the property, on arrival we were met at the car park by a charming representative who escorted us to the property, showed us in and made us feel very welcome. There is also very useful information in the property regarding restaurants, pizzerias etc. No 'stones are left unturned', but this doesn't prevent the curious tourists from making discoveries of their own. I have no hesitation in recommending this let and commend the owners on the quality of their contact throughout the booking process and beyond. My recommendation is unreserved.
