I've just got back from 7 amazing days at The Lemon Tree. Diego & Karen were incredible hosts, looking after us and making sure we had everything we needed & more. They organised everything from trips to boats, mopeds, airport transfers & restaurants - they know Sicily so well and i'm sure we only touched the surface. I cannot recommend... More

Sam and I decided a number of years ago to get married in Taormina, which for us is one of the most beautiful places on earth, we also decided that we would need a wedding planner to help us with the details and planning. We settled on Karen and Diego, and after spending time with them we know we have... More

The views will take your breath away!! The villa is high up the hill but transport is readily available to take you to the beach or towns near by. Karen and Diego are wonderful hosts. If I were to change anything I would have went on the excursion to mount etna and done the wine tasting. This can be arranged... More

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

Thanks Karen and Diego for the great holiday experience. You live in a magical spot of Sicily and thanks for sharing your experience with us. 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.

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
