Great staff, great location and great apartments. The gardens are lush and a cool retreat in the heat of the day. The swimming pool is lovely and overlooks the bay below Taormina towards Isola Bella. Went beginning of June when the flowers were in full bloom and they were stunning. The restaurants up the hill (steep set of steps) are... More

This is a very nice place to stay if you plan a visit to Taormina. The view is magnificent with Isola bella in the front and the medeterrenian beyond. The garden is also fantastic. Be aware that there are many steps to the beach (app 350 steps) and also a pretty hard walk to get into the towncentre - expect... More

Loved our stay here in an upstairs 2 bed apartment with fabulous views of isola bella. Sparsely furnished but great for a holiday and cleaned everyday. Pool warm in early June as was the crystal clear sea. Itis a rocky bay so swim shoes are useful, if you like snorkeling it is amazing! We walked everywhere, up and down the... More

We stayed at Terra Rossa after booking with Airbnb. The location is stunning, which in turn means that access by foot virtually requires mountaineering expertise, while an approach by car is not for the faint-hearted! We had a lovely little apartment, with a view to die for and all the necessary amenities. Wifi is available within the reception area. We... More

I decided to go in via the steps. In up to my knees, then I retreat. It's b**** freezing! Ok...let's have another go. It doesn't seem quite as cold the second time. Right - it's up to my waist. Just a quick jump, bend the knees....I'm in. In ice clear water that is the pool in the middle of utopia.... More

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
