“Great hospitality, great view”
Reviewed August 5, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We had a wonderful time (8 days) at The Lemon Tree. The look to the city of Taormina and Castelmola and the sea was great. With two minutes of walk also Mt. Etna can be seen from the street, and also from apartments. The pool was amazing! It is definitely a very good choice if you want to visit Sicily with children at the age of about 10---your children will enjoy not only the pool but the darts, billiard and table tennis in the garden if the sun is too hot.

Karen and Diego run these Apartments and their hospitality is really admirable. Their help was very helpful in visiting the sights in Taormina and the Mt. Etna and transporting us to Giardini Naxos.

“Fantastic place a home from home (but with great weather ”

Stayed here for a long weekend to get away from the rain in the uk and as we are getting married in Taormina in two months.

The lemon tree is simply the most exceptional place to stay, with views from an Italian movie, a lovely chilled out vibe, pool and amenities the lemon tree has it all .

But that's not the best part of our stay, the owners Diego and Karen ensure that your stay has everything you need, whether that's grabbing you some shopping, running you into town, helping you book a great place to eat at night, they live by the mantra of doing whatever they can to make your stay brilliant.

Having stayed in the hustle and bustle of Taormina a few times we will now only ever go back to the lemon tree

“Wonderful apartments in stunning location”

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 enjoyed our stay and would fully recommend to both couples and families visiting Taormina & Castlemola. We hope to return one day

“The Host with the Most”

Our four night stay at the Lemon Tree was the highlight of our week long exploration of Sicily. Karen and Diego take such a personal interest in their guests. From arranging a cooking class onsite, to shopping with us locally for the ingredients as well as making other dinner arrangements for us in Taormina, Karen and Diego brilliantly guided us in every direction.

Their warmth and kindness extends beyond that of a business to making their guests feel like friends. The view from the property looking across at Castlemola/Taormina and out to the sea is gorgeous! The Lemon Tree's red wine and olive oil are delicious too. The entire experience is a treat for the senses!

“The Most Wonderful Place”
Reviewed October 20, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

My husband and I stayed at the Lemon Tree and had the most wonderful time. Karen and Diego are fantastic hosts. The views from the Lemon Tree apartments overlook Taormina, Castlemola, Giardini Naxos and Mount Etna - you could not want for a more breath taking location. The apartments are clean and very well maintained. Anything we needed we just had to ask. This is an outstanding accommodation to stay in and very well priced too. This gets 10 out of 10 from us and we would recommend anyone thinking of staying in Taormina to book at the Lemon Tree.

“Fantastic holiday in a stunning location with wonderful hosts”

We stayed in the 2 bed Alcantara apartment - plenty of room for us and our 2 daughters (aged 8 and 12)Everything was clean and the apartment was well equipped. When we needed some pizza trays Karen was happy and able to provide them. The outside terrace was lovely and had the most amazing views. Pool was a good size and well maintained with plenty of loungers and umbrellas. As has already been mentioned the road up to the Apartments is full of hair pin bends but its so worth it when you get there - stunning views and a lovely secluded spot. Its worth mentioning that you really do need to a car when staying here as its a very long walk to the nearest towns of Taormina and Giardini Naxos and the beaches. But I do think you'd need a car anywhere in Sicily if you want to explore as there is so much to see. We had a wonderful holiday and are hoping to stay again next year - it was that good! Karen and Diego are brilliant hosts - so knowledgeable about the area and fluent in Sicilian! Whatever you need they will try to accommodate and whatever you want - Beach, Restaurant, best route to Etna etc they will give you excellent advice. Plus
