A spacious, comfortable and fully equipped apartment. The terrace runs the full length of the house and has sun all day and lovely views of the sea and the beaches of Taormina. It boasts luxuriant flowering vegetation and provides a welcome haven from the busy town. It felt like a home rather than a sterile rental and even had cook books in the kitchen.
Our host, Francesca and her family were incredibly generous and helpful. On arrival we found fresh fruit, bread, butter, eggs and a bottle of wine. We were delighted! Francesca's sister organised some excellent excursions for us and her father who lives next door was an absolute gem. He gave us terrific recommendations for restaurants, made bookings for us and was a mine of information on where to shop and what to see.
We would thoroughly recommend this charming, attractive apartment.
A very nice apartment with an excellent terrace. Francesca was extremely helpful with almost instant response to email queries. Louisa, Francesca's sister, and Marco were always on hand with help and advice if required. It was a nice touch to arrive to a bowl full of fruit, bread, milk, eggs and a welcome bottle of wine. It's about a 10 minute walk down to Corso Umberto in Taormina and the same to the cable car down to Mazzaro ..... very convenient.
Francescas apartment just as we had envisaged, but terrace garden even more magnificent. Louisa helpful beyond belief. Made our stay so much easier and entices us to return next trip.
What can I say, this place was incredible. It felt as if you owned your own little cottage with a grand view of a slice of heaven. The apartment has classic Italian furniture but with all the modern amenities. Fully equipped kitchen an bathroom, AC, and because if the truly exceptional Mediterranean hospitality, fresh fruit, bread, eggs and coffee all to start of your holiday just right. The girls, and I say girls because you don't get one without the other, two sisters, one across the road from the other, and the rest of the family in homes next door and along the way, all make you feel as if you are part of this multi-generational warmth, that even I as a med myself, was completely impressed by. Thank you with all of my heart for making this one of the most memorable experiences in Italy. And the majestic view, breathtaking.
This is a large, spacious,quiet, well furnished, ground floor apartment with a well equipped kitchen, comfortable sitting room and two bathrooms, one of which has a shower. All the rooms have doors, with shutters leading onto the very large attractive balcony with fantastic views of Taormina and the coast. Plants in pots and an olive tree adorn the terrace supplied with table and chairs for eating out. There is a large awning to provide shade.Booking was efficient and easy and the owner met us on arrival and showed us round and had thoughtfully supplied some provisions, bread, eggs, fruit, milk and wine which were very welcome. It is about a six minute hilly walk to the nearest small shop for basic provisions and 10-15 minute walk into Toarmina which has a lovely historic centre. We recommend the Santa Lucia restaurant, for authentic Italian food on Via Cappuccini 10 minute walk on way into Toarmina.There are plenty of other restaurants to try and numerous coffee bars.
We would definately recommend this lovely apartment and hope to return.
