“Perfect Taormina stay”
Reviewed June 22, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed at Casa Ella for 5 days in June while the Film Festival was on. The location could not be better, in amongst the lovely bars and restaurants and a short distance away from several beautiful beaches.

The house itself is equips with everything you could need, we loved that the roof terrace has it's own kitchen for when you want to do a BBQ (including a little fridge so you don't have to go downstairs for a prosecco top up!).

The local agent, Isabella, really looked after us and gave us tips of where to go. One of the air conditioning units stopped working but the owner had it fixed rally quickly, and even had the neighbouring bar owners check on us as we walked by to make sure it was ok and to see if they could do anything. We felt very looked after!

There's is a little shop next door for your every day supplies and even a gym a few doors down if you want to balance out all the good Sicilian food you will be consuming!

A lovely place to stay we couldn't believe our luck when we arrived, and we plan to go back next year.

“Lovely, well equipped property in a great location.”
Reviewed June 7, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Casa Ella proved to be the perfect base for our holiday in Taormina. The house is beautiful, and extremely well equipped. The location, right in the centre of town, is a cool, quiet oasis of calm in a busy, bustling place. The roof terrace is a great bonus, particularly the extra kitchenette, which made for some lovely twilight dinners. Waking to the smell of freshly baked bread and pastries from the great little bakery below was magical. Isobella, the local contact was charming and helpful. All in all, faultless. Highly recommended. Take an i-pod to benefit from the music system, which has speakers right through the house, including the roof terrace.

We were the first people to stay here 3 years ago it was wonderful then and just as wonderful today. It has been kept up to standard and is in a very central location.

An ideal place to stay in Taormina. We will be back again sometime in the future.

Casa Ella has everything you could possible need. Situated in the heart of Toarmina.
Lots of restaurants just on the doorstep, however the apartment is very quiet with a roof terrace which catches the sun all day. Would highly recommend, Chris arranged a local taxi to pick us up at the airport and Isabella was waiting for us on our arrival to show us around the apartment. We had a super time and the weather was excellent too!

We had a great holiday for a week and could happily have stayed longer. The house was well equipped , clean and in the best location centrally. I have read a previous post re the noise and disagree totally !! I am a light sleeper and never heard a thing . The local deli was excellent - we had fresh pasta and got up early enough one morning to watch them hand roll it ! Perfect . Would recommend to anyone .

We stayed here for 2 weeks in June and had a wonderful holiday. The house is very smart and well equipped. We loved the roof terrace! The location was great, with a good selection of bars, restaurants and cafés nearby.
Everything went smoothly with booking, arrival and entry. We would definitely return!

“Fabulous house in great location”
Reviewed September 30, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We stayed in Casa Ella for two weeks in September 2014 and found both the house and Taormina itself to be fantastic. The house is in a great location and has everything you need for a relaxing stay. The owners were very helpful and stayed in touch throughout our holiday to check we had everything we needed. If we return to Taormina in the future we would definitely stay in Casa Ella again.
