Taormina, Province of Messina, Sicily
I purchased this apartment as i simply fell in love with Taormina. As anyone visiting will find out Taormina is really the Pearl of the Mediterranean Sea, the apartment is perfectly located in the town center but just set back from the main Corso Umberto giving you the best of both worlds, central but just back from the crowds.Its this location that means you can if you wish spend your days without a car, walking around the town taking in all the beautiful sights and visiting the Greek Theatre etc. There is cable car to take you down to the beach, its simply breathtaking. There are day trips to be purchased in town, for example to visit Mount Etna or the Aeolian Islands, you will simply never be bored and this on your doorstep.

Louise and I began to look for an apartment in Taormina in early 2016 shortly after returning from a 14 day tour of Sicily. After looking extensively at apartments on line, we began to interact with Virginia via email. Her professionalism and courtesy were appreciated...More
