    The apartment is three minutes far from the main street, going on foot, near to Porta Messina. From here there's the cableway which leads to the wonderful beaches such as Isola Bella and Mazzarò.

Giuseppe is new to the lettings business and is really trying to do things well. He is helpful, listens to you and is a very decent person. He picked us up from the bus station on arrival and gave us a lift back to it when we were leaving.

The accommodation is fine - there were a couple of ideas we had to improve it and Giuseppe was pleased to hear them. ( People need to bear in mind that you need to walk through one sleeping area to get to the main bedroon.)
There are lots of steps to the accommodation so people with mobility problems need to be careful.
Walking distance to the shops, restaurants, cable car and bus station.

We found out at the end of our visit that the cable car takes you to a beach (not sand) whereas from the bus station you can get a bus (that is cheaper) that goes to the beach at Naxos (that is cheaper and sandy).

To go close to the top of Etna is interesting but expensive.

This appartment is pretty with good space, in the shadow the most part of the day, so it's relatively fresh, but i would not recommand it for people from the north of Europe (no air condition and no wind trough the windows). Otherwise it is in the best part of Taormina, there everything is goin on, just a little bit aside in a quiet block. The kitchen and equipment is very simple, so if you just cook spaghetti or make some sandwiches is it ok, but not expect to cook gastronimic menues there. The terrasse is spacious and the kitchen who comunicate with it is in a nice winterhagen, but no seaview. Everything taked in consideration we think the price is a little too high for this standard, but you are in the hearth of Taormina, hoho.....
The owner is a very nice and correct man, he will make the possible to make you enjoy your holidays.
