The Lemon Tree has great views of Tiormina and Castelmola and sits in it's own grounds on the hill opposite. It is very easy to relax and chill out by the pool in the day, or to use the BBQs for informal dining on the patio in the evening, although there is so much to see as well. Karen and... More

It is now, almost a year after, that we still have pictures in our mind of the lovely time we had. There would have been lots more to explore for us so we definitely have... More

We first stayed at the Lemon Tree in 2013 and have recently returned from a week’s stay, prior to our wedding, with our friends and family. We’re thrilled that we chose to stay at the Lemon Tree a second time and that we had Karen and Diego help us plan our wedding - they are a fantastic team and nothing... More

Karen and Diego are fantastic hosts, despite his tendency to launch the volleyball straight at you. The Lemon Tree is a lovely group of apartments, it never seemed crowded and was great for the kids to roam around. Location would be better with a car (this was the family part of our trip so we decided to opt from our... More

We stayed at the Lemon tree for the 2nd week of our Euro vacation. We wanted a home base while we made day trips along the eastern side of Sicily. The lemon tree suited this purpose perfectly. While it is no where within walking distance to anything, it is also no where close to the prices other establishments are charging.... More

Karen and Diego are wonderful hosts they know the area and can arrange whatever you need to make your holiday enjoyable. The Lemon Tree is high above Giardini Naxos along a windy road so although you could manage using taxis really a car is preferrable and will give you the opportunity to explore Taormina, Castlemola and Mt Etna. The apartments... More
