“weeks relaxation in Taormina”

We were a family of four looking for a relaxing break in the beautiful town of Taormina.
This property delivered a central location where you could enjoy bars and restaurants and the historical sights.
The terrace was a sun trap and a great spot for breakfast with the bakers just below for supplies.
Lucias delicatessen next door was wonderful and very friendly.The Bam Bar Is great for watching the world go by and the Myle restaurant was superb.
Airport transfers were arranged for us and Isabella was there to welcome us to Taormina and give us the keys to Casa Ella.

“nice house NO SLEEP”
Reviewed 13 September 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The owners and house manager will deny that there is any NOISE but it is relentless. This is a lovely house and it is an echo chamber 24/7. If you are looking for a quiet property this is NOT for you . If you are 18 and don't care about noise, cigarette smoke wafting through the house from the baker below as well as the banging of the baking pans and aroma of bread (at first a romantic notion then annoying at 3 a.m. every night/morning) then give it a shot. Windows open or closed the noise is the same and the odors as well. I would have left this property after two nights if I had not paid for a four week stay in advance.

“Fantastic house in Taormina”
Reviewed 18 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed at Casa Ella for two weeks at the end of July / early August. The house was fabulous, it had everything you could want for a holiday and was spotless. The location is perfect, just a few minutes walk from Corso Umberto. Lazy days were spent sunbathing on the roof terrace, popping over to Bam Bar for a coffee or granita and getting a really tasty sandwich from the deli below. So many good restaurants nearby, try Myle next door, excellent service there. Had a great two weeks at Casa Ella, when we return to Sicily we will definitely book again!
Just a quick note for the hosts Chris and Pauline, on the day of our flight to Sicily, the plane was delayed by 9 hours, Chris organised the transfer to come later for us, we didn't land until 3am! Excellent service and much appreciated.

“Another wonderful stay here”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed at Casa Ella for the second time in June 2014. It is very rare that we revisit places but both Casa Ella and Taormina are both very special. For us it was the perfect end to a trip around Sicily and the islands. The house is beautiful and the location in Taormina is fantastic. All the wonderful reviews on tripadvisor really do say it all.

“Casa Ella....5 star perfection in relaxed luxury”

We were so sad to leave...we wanted a relaxing holiday to do our own thing as we've been touring far and wide over the past five years ... It was one of the best holidays doing just that, and we plan to return.
Credit where its due Casa Ella is a real gem to enjoy beautiful Taormina. The location perfect.The spacious modern interiors with classic features feel so relaxed. Spotless throughout, well equipped kitchen with all the mod cons and more, shower and bath in the en suite bedroom, with huge comfortable bed and generous wardrobe space , just perfect. We spent most days on the rooftop terrace to enjoy breakfast, afternoons stretched out on the sun loungers and evenings if not out and about, listen to the gentle bustle from down below.... sipping prosecco off course. We didn't get a chance to use the BBQ and small kitchen but its there ready and waiting.Living room a nice size to chill and watch a DVD or check out the reading material on what to see and do in Taormina. So much to see, so much to eat, Casa Ella... Taormina... Fantastic.... Its on our list to go back.
Top Tips : Salvatore- local taxi driver pick up from the airport as suggested, prompt curtious and much welcomed after an early start
:Local bakery the best pastries, downstairs on the right, deli on the left for sandwiches and wines.
: Bambar- across the street for Granite and coffee
: Myle - Smoked salmon pizza and swordfish spaghetti.
:Time Out Irish Bar - Guinness and excellent Fish & Chips if you must.....
Thanks to Isabella for the warm welcome and friendly advice on arrival with keys and information.

Thanks for everything
