It's a hidden place where you really feel that home is very very far away. Tucked in the hill of Taormina, between the city and the beach, lies this small residence with rooms and houses. Breakfast is served at a terrace overlooking the bay, with the sun it is amazing. The people are friendly, the pool is ok! Highly recommended

Arriving at the residence terra Rossa, the place looks magical. Specially in april, with all the flowers and green. Awesome view, and good location. Only 10 min of steps to Mazzaro, and 20 min to Taormina. As long as you are fit. The appartemen is spacious, though simple furnitured. Finishing could be better, but hey... Its Italy. What did disturb... More

This is a wonderful place! We stayed one week in a two bedroom apartment with a balcony overlooking the pool and the sea (apartment #9). The grounds are beautiful with lots of lush greenery. The apartment itself was simple but very clean and well kept up. The beds were comfortable, there is a simple kitchen with four burners but no... More

The location of this hotel is very good, with views towards mainland Italy and Isla Bella. The ground and pool area are nicely kept and all have the magnificent views over the bay. However, I am sorry to say that we were very disappointed with the condition of the rooms - as little of no maintenance had been done for... More

This is a beautiful apartment hotel. The apartments are spacious and clean and, although they lack airconditioning, are cooled by electric ceiling fans. They each have a balcony with chairs and dining table, and there is another dining table inside with kitchenette (equipped with fridge freezer, hob, sink and plenty of crockery and cutlery, but no dishwasher). The views, of... More

Having just got back from a 10 day holiday staying at Residence Terra Rossa, I have to say it was a really lovely and beautiful experience. We were staying in an apartment (no. 16) which had the most incredible views of Isola Bella, and the sea itself more generally, along with a little covered patio area outside our door. Our... More

The best thing about the apartments are the view along the coastline. Otherwise there is a number of things one should be aware of or that could be improved. The nice view comes with a cost: STAIRS! About 250 down to the road to the cabelcar and an extra 100 to the beach. A few things to be aware of... More

Stayed here for the second time last month and loved it. Our studio apartment had a lovely view of Isola Bella which we enjoyed with breakfast every morning. Having a pool to relax by on the 'easy' days was great. Atmosphere was nice and quiet with the hustle and bustle of the town centre a 10 min walk if you... More

Had a lovely time staying in the apartment with the most fantastic views. The apartment is very basic but reasonably priced, convenient for the town and beach and has all you need. I would visit again. The appartments could however do with some improvements - a satellite Tv and DVD for rainy days, wifi in the rooms, and more utensils... More

I am from Sydney, Australia and was recently staying at these beautiful apartments in Taormina over Easter with my family and it is the best family vacation we have had in a long time. The views were breath taking to wake up to every day and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is great - half way... More
