“Highly recommend”
Reviewed 13 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

My wife and I spent 13 days in Sicily staying in this lovely apartment.

The location was ideal for us, situated seconds from the main street of Corso Umberto in Taormina centre. We decided it was a better option than staying down at the sea/beach level and were very happy with our choice. The streets are a buzzy and vibrant place in the evening with plenty to entertain you, and more than enough restaurants and bars to fulfil most appetities. To reach the nearest beach/lido takes approximately 20-25 minutes. This includes a very pleasant 10 minute walk along Corso Umberto and then a Cable Car journey down to beach level.

The apartment itself was immaculate and exactly as the description and images portray. The check-in was dealt with smoothly and included a very useful welcome pack providing details of the apartments amentities and further information on the local area. The large terrace overlooking the town with views of both Etna and the Ancient Theatre was a real pleasure. One thing worth mentioning is that the staircase from the ground level (bedrooms/bathroom) up to the lounge, kitchen and terrace is quite narrow and steep and may be prove a little difficult for those with mobility issues.

Virginia herself provided personal advice and assistance on a number of occasions throughout our stay and always seemed happy to do so.

I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone keen to stay in a central location in Taormina.
