This is the best place to stay in Sicily! The surroundings are beautiful and the appartments clean, nicely furnished and comfortable (we were in three of them). The location itself is quiet, with a wondeful view on Taormina and the Ionic Sea. Karen and Diego are great hosts, which made our stay even better!

We had the most fabulous time here. The apartment was very clean and spacious with breathtaking views from the terrace. Karen and Diego are the perfect hosts- nothing was too much trouble- including going to get us fresh bread from the bakery ( quite a drive ). We loved the position of the apartment- away from the bustle but accessible... More

We have just returned from a weeks stay to attend a wedding in Taormina. We hired the Limoncello studio which was adequately equipped for the three of us (2 adults and an 8 yr old). The location is superb, the apartments are very clean, the pool lovely and the owners Karen & Diego are very friendly and helpful. We really... More

What a fantastic holiday in such a beautiful location! ! Karen and Diego were wonderful hosts and although we didn't brave the driving on this occasion we were transported when and where we wanted to go. There is so much to do that we will just have to visit again! Highly recommend the trekking experience up mount Etna which Diego... More

Stayed here with 2 children 10 and 16 and it was perfect. The kids loved the pool volleyball games, pool table, table tennis and freedom to roam safely. Karen and Diego go out of their way to help, even took my son up to a place so he could paraglide down to the beach. Loads to do down in the... More

What a perfect place. Beautiful view, nice apartment, big balcony. Although the owners were on a well deserved holiday their replacers mike and kate did just fine. The pick up point at the railway station is easy to find, and what a great service! We enjoyed the lemon tree and the privacy we had very much.

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
