This apartment was perfect for us. We have two young daughters who love to swim and the pool was a delight. The view from the terrace is enchanting and you pretty much want to sit and stare out at the ocean all day. The unit was very clean and in good condition. The owner and the property manager were both very helpful and friendly. The location is perfect for walking around Taormina. There is also parking included right in the building which is a huge bonus since many places right in the heart of Taormina don't have parking spots. There are many stairs up to the main strip of Taormina what was fine for us but if you have a big heavy stroller or have problems doing stairs you might want to ask the owner if there s another easier way to get up to the street. We loved this place and so did our kids. It was hard to leave ! We did a day trip to Etna from here and it was easy to get there and back from this location. Walking to dinner, get coffee and groceries all close. Wonderful place.

This apartment is in the ideal spot for walking into the main area of Taormina each day as well as overlooking the coastline. It boasts a contemporary interior with two bathrooms which is ideal for a family of 4. The huge patio opens directly onto the pool area and is great for eating out each day at the table, as well as relaxing on the outdoor sofas in the shade.
The owner was very hospitable and showed us the route to the main area as well as being contactable during our stay for any questions.
It literally is located just past one end of the Corto Umberto so there is no need for a car or public transport to get out to dinner each night, and the kitchen could easily cover eating in.
The pool is lovely to relax by each day with lovely sun beds and broad umbrellas for shade. The only snag is that it's available to around 40 apartments all together so can get busy, but we noticed that even in August, there were always sun beds available early or around midday to 4pm when most visitors would disappear. It is great for kids to find other playmates!
We spent a very enjoyable relaxing holiday in this beautiful apartment, in a fantastic location. We had a 4 year old daughter who loved the pool - there was both a shallow splash pool and an adult pool. The private car park was an added bonus. Taormina is a beautiful vibrant town, where there is always something happening. We had a car and we're able to drive to various towns and places of beauty on the island which we really enjoyed doing and would recommend. However due to the central location of the apartment a car was not essential. The beaches closest to Taormina are very pebbly though, so it was not as good for our daughter, however this was compensated for with the pool and we enjoyed many an afternoon relaxing and swimming. The apartment was very well equipped with everything we needed for a successful holiday. I would highly recommend this accommodation.
