Very good hosts. Excellent apartment and views. Visited in November 2015 with my family of 5. Kids loved movie library to relax in the evenings after a long day of sightseeing. We used the kitchen every day for breakfast and dinner.

What a fantastic stay. A short drive from Taormina, these self catering apartments are away from the hustle and bustle of the busy tourist spots, with fantastic views. We stayed in the largest apartment with an amazing balcony, with a sun rise so beautiful it got me out of bed each morning! The owners Diego and Karen are fantastic -... More

We had such a lovely time staying at The Lemon Tree with a family group of around 14 and Karen & Diego couldnt have been better hosts. Nothing was too much trouble and they were also happy to advise of the best things to see and do. Our apartment was clean and cosy with 2 bathrooms for 4 people which... More

My girlfriend and me (27 and 32) visited the lemon tree on october 2015. Easy to find with navigation system, ten minutes away from Taormina by car, five minutes to the next supermarket and the beach, five mins to the motorway so it was easy to get to some other points of interest or the airport. We had a very... More

Wonderful views from the balcony across to Taormina, Castelmola and the sea. Diego and Karen, the owners, are as nice and helpful a couple as you could ever wish to meet. The world's soppiest dog hangs around the balcony. Bring your own drink and snacks as it is a bit of a trek into town. A truly great place.

We rented two apartments here for ourselves and our adult sons in June. The Lemon Tree suited us well as it was near Taormina, but set in a beautiful relaxing location away from the centre, with fabulous views towards the town, the hills, the sea and a gently smoking Mount Etna. The Lemon Tree is a large converted villa with... More

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
