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

We had a wonderful time at the Lemon Tree and look back at the time spent with Karen and Diego, who are English and have a very hands on approach to looking after their guests, made us feel most welcome.The setting is great and a dip in the pool at the end of the day was most welcome. We would... More

They made our wedding and the entire week a wonderful time for the whole family. When it's time to plan your wedding you're feeling a bit nervous about the right location, the perfect venue for your Big Day, how to deal with the paperwork, fitting the whole family in one place, etc. We wanted to have a wedding outside of...

Karen & Diego are worth the 5 star rating alone! I scraped the side of a native's car upon arrival into the town of Giardini Naxos, bursting one of my own tyres in the process. Didn't have a clue what matey was saying so called Karen, and Diego came straight down to sort it all out (police ended up giving... More

My wife and I and another couple stayed hear in April 2012. The Alcantara apartment provided all we needed with a fantastic view of Castelmola and Taormina by night and day and to our right the beautiful blue ocean. The owners, Karen and Diego provide a great service. The Lemon Tree is ideally located to take day trips to Mount... More

We visited in July and really loved it. Karen met us in the car park of the railway station and guided us up the hill. The location is fantastic with wonderful views and a lovely pool, but the real attraction are Karen and Diego - the most hospitable hosts. It was a holiday we will never forget, we met some... More

We booked a 2 night stay in the Limoncello apartment but wished we had stayed longer. We were blown away by the high standard of accommodation and service which Karen and Diego offer. They could not do enough to please and went out of their way to help us, whether it was ordering a taxi, recommending a restaurant or renting... More
