“Hidden gem!”
Reviewed 27 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

I do not have enough words to describe our fantastic stay at Villa Aurora. From the moment we arrived Nino took care of us and made out trip extra special. So much that we enjoyed a drink with him almost every evening! Our fridge was stocked with a bottle of Sicilian wine, water, fruit and a few goodies for breakfast so we don't have to rush to a shop on our first morning there. What a lovely touch.
We enjoyed our large terrace for hours every day with unspoilt views of the ocean. We didn't want to leave! It was definitely a better choice over a hotel for what we wanted, as we love to escape the crowds of tourists every day and instead of spending it by a hotel pool, crowded beach or small balcony, we enjoyed the privacy of our own characteristic terrace, only 7 mins walk to the town centre. No cable car needed to get to and no massively steep hills either.
We are already planning our next visit there!

“Simply Brilliant”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I had the pleasure of staying at Apartment Aurora for 2 weeks whilst studying at Babilonia language school. The apartment is in fantastic location only a 7 minute walk to the Corso Umberto but a nice distance away from the noisy centre at night.
The terrace is nice and big and lovely to sit and read in the sun or for drinks in the evening. The apartment is newly renovated with big modern kitchen and fantastic antique furniture which makes it quite funky the combination of the two.
Nino (Francesca 's father lives downstairs) and is an exceptional host. He has an amazing garden and very kindly would give me fresh peaches and tomatoes from the garden. He is a wealth of knowledge with a background in the travel industry and has a great sense of humour.
He walked me into town the first morning and showed me around good local stores etc which was very helpful. Both Francesca and Nino really add that professional touch that coupled with the lovely apartment really gives it the edge over other apartments I viewed.
I definitely can not wait to return and have recommended this apartment to all my friends who are travelling to Sicily.

Bright, sunny, clean, charming, great location! This apartment has all the comforts and conveniences necessary with a spectacular terrace and view. It is well represented on line with pictures, and the owners, Nino and Francesca are very hospitable. In one word... DELIGHTFUL!

“Relax and enjoy!”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed at Villa Aurora for 7 nights in June and loved it.The situation of the house was perfect with stunning views across the sea to Calabria .The large terrace was ideal for simple leisurely lunches prepared after a morning's stroll into town for coffee and a trip to the baker and market(Nino,a great host, took us in to town on our first morning to make sure we shopped like the locals)
The appartment was cool and spacious and the air conditioning greatly appreciated in the 30 degree heat.We also appreciated the fact that it was an easy 7minute walk into Taormina with only a slight gradient.
We took Nino up on his tip to enjoy a cocktail at sunset on the terrace of the Grand Hotel Timeo ...expensive but worth it! Another essential thing to do is visit the famous Bam Bar for mouthwatering fresh fruit granitas and brioche.
We would certainly go back to Villa Aurora and thought that our combination of Cefalu,Taormina and Syracusa worked well.
