I know, I am very late with my review. This was my first time here in Taormina and in the Villa together with my wife. Would love to come again as my myself and my wife loved everything - the pool , beach, food, drink and so on. I would hıghly recommend this Home to my friends and family and colleagues. The surrounding grounds of the Villa are immaculate. Clear sea, coves and silences. A lady called Rosetta and her daughter were fantastic with us and went above and beyond the call of duty - organising all the details for us and explaining as well. The villa is well equipped, the communication with Francesco perfectly and easy. There was the best stay I have ever had at a holiday home. We want to come one more! George

Having looked around on many sights the family decided on the Villa Suk. When we arrived how happy we where with our choice. Great location a warm welcome from the caretaker and a wonderfully proportioned villa. As we where a grown up family we found the extra bedroom across the arch a great bonus. The pool was very nice and had stunning views.
The owner had left plenty of information and was very helpful before we left the UK.
I throughly recommend this villa amazing views nice size and excellent location.
So glad we found it

“Excellent location and view”
Reviewed October 13, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We walked into the villa and were surprised to see how dark and dated the interior was. The entire villa needs to be updated as everything, especially the kitchen, is probably original with no improvements made since inception. The kitchen was poorly equipped. Lights were needed all day in the living room it was so dark. The second bathroom was outside the main villa across a public walkway - very inconvenient.. The living room sofa was draped with a loose throw that constantly needed tiding every time you sat down. A positive was a beautiful terrace with a magnificent view and a likewise beautiful pool area but there were't enough lounge chairs if you were more than one person.

Management Response

Thank you for your feedback. We are always looking to improve the standard of our villa and we appreciate your suggestions. As for the decoration of the kitchen and living room, I confirm that it's original from 70s and has been designed by the world-renowned architect Giulio Minoletti. We keep updating the interior for modern lifestyles while always carefully keeping its original retro style, taste and colours. Our kitchen is equipped with all the common appliances including fridge, freezer, cooker, oven, microwave, kettle, toaster, and dishwasher. Please note that our villa has two bathrooms which are located within the main house, next to the bedrooms (exactly as advertised). The bathroom across the public walkway is actually a 'third' bathroom next to the utility room. We are a bit surprised about the issue with lounge chairs at the complex pool, we apologise for any inconvenience and will double check with the complex manager.

“Il Suk - a little piece of paradise.”

We had such a great stay at Francesco's villa during the first week of September. The villa is very well located, right on the water front with spectacular views over Isola Bella. We spent all but one day at the beach swimming in the crystal clear water and falling asleep on sun lounges. Francesco supplied us with a concise information pack with everything we needed to know and we had a great time eating our way around Taormina. The villa has everything you need, as well as a spectacular private courtyard at the front where you can enjoy meals and afternoon cocktails. We were pleasantly surprised to find air conditioning in all bedrooms as well as the lounge room - even though we didn't have to use it often. We definitely recommend a stay at Il Suk - we are definitely returning!

“An excellent choice”

We thoroughly recommend Villa Suk to anyone who is looking for a superb location with great facilities including an excellent shared pool and good access to the sea via steps or a lift, and a well maintained beach platform. Access to Taormina is easy either via the funicular (10 mins walk away)or by car with plentiful paid parking on the edge of the old town. The outdoor terrace is superb with excellent lounging and dining facilities with unsurpassed views of Isola Bella. Dining here each night with the sun going down was one of the highlights of our stay. Villa Suk is an excellent base for touring this part of Sicily with easy access to the A18 about 5 minutes away. Whilst not luxurious, it has all necessary cooking facilities and is very comfortable. The owner Francesco was most helpful and attentive from our first contact. Our one minor problem was attended to immediately with regular updates on its progress. All in all it is a excellent choice.

“Oh what a view!!”
Reviewed June 24, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Our stay at Villa Suk was absolutley amazing. Villa Suk is located on the cliffs of Taormina just minutes from the beautiful down town~the villa was very comfortable for the 6 of us and the outdoor patio was our gathering place for conversation, wine and photos~I can not describe the beauty of it all.....it's a place that you just have to go an see for yourself!

“Perfetto!!!”
Reviewed June 12, 2014 for a stay in September 2013

What a wonderful 2 weeks we all had in Sicily! The accommodations were perfect for our needs and the view and location could not have been better. It was so lovely to awake to the sunrise each morning and return to the condominium at the end of each day. I know that we will all look back on our stay with great fondness. Francesco was amazingly helpful. We met him our second day at Villa Suk and he made a number of helpful recommendations regarding restaurants and UNESCO and other sites to visit. He recommended that we go to Noto and Siracusa - both truly amazing. We also engaged a private guide to go wine tasting - fabulous! We rented a car for 1 week and were able to travel to mount Etna, Castel Mola, Forze d'Agro, Savoca and Alcantara Gorge. The Internet access at the condominium never worked but it was nice to finally have a break! We drove to a large market one Sunday and purchased some of my favorite foods. We had a great time that afternoon just relaxing, drinking wine and cooking staples from my childhood in New York that we cannot get in California! It was especially nice to meet Francesco, since we rarely meet the property owner when we travel and it really personalizes the stay so much more. Thank you again for opening your home to us - it made the trip extra special.
