“Villa Virginia, Taormina.”

We stayed at Villa Virginia for one marvellous week in August in apartment 2. Taormina is a special place with breathtaking views, a fantastic town centre and excellant bays with great facilities. This was my families first trip to Sicily and we struck gold with the town and the apartment.
Villa Virginia is a new apartment building with comfy beds, air con and fitted kitchen. All the rooms have large balconies with stunning views and there is secure parking which is rare in Taormina for all the rooms.
The location suited us as we like quiet nights and don't mind a bit of exercise walking to the town centre. There is a regular bus service and loads of taxi's but we quite enjoyed the 20 minute walk into town in the morning where we took the cable car down to the beaches and also walked into town each night to enjoy the many top quality restaurants and on one great night the Greek amphitheatre which is a must see for a concert.
We did cheat though and usually took taxi's back up the hill as it was either too hot or we were tried to try it. A good tip from us would be to visit one of the supermarkets early on to stock up with supplies and take a taxi back to unload.
Another great day out was visiting Etna. We drove ourselves to the cable car station which took under one hour from the apartment and then took the cable car up which was as close as we wanted to the smoking summit.
Lastly thanks to the owners and staff for looking after us so well - we will definatley come here again.

Villa Virginia has some wonderful apartments set on a hill above the main strip of Taormina. It is a wonderful setting because you get great views of the sea, and if your apartment faces the right way, of Mount Etna too. Our apartment faced the road which relatively quiet and had great views of the sea towards the Italian mainland and lovely views of Saracen castle and the beautiful church of Madonna del a Rocca. Each apartment has a balcony and we used ours most evenings sipping wine with the relaxing gorgeous views.

Location wise, the villa was perfect for us. We wanted to be within walking distance from the main shops and restaurants but far enough away to not be disturbed by it at night for peaceful rest. If you want to be in the heart of the action in Taormina, this may not be the best location for you as you do have to walk down many many steps for about 10-15 minutes to get there and the walk back up is about 20 minutes. Good for exercise though! There is a very useful garage beneath the apartments for those who want to drive.

The apartment itself was immaculate. It has an open plan kitchen and living space with air con. It didn't look like it had been used with the kitchen looking like it was brand new, as did the bathroom. You get all the basics and essentials for cooking and dining, but there isn't a dishwasher. If you plan to self-cater, be warned that there is no mini-supermarket of any sort immediately nearby, you need to go down to Taormina for the mini market. That said the restaurants in Taormina are fantastic, especially for seafood - so we didn't self-cater too much! The bedroom has a clean and comfortable double bed, with a large wardrobe and the essential air con unit.

There is a great restaurant called Al Saraceno just a couple of minutes walk from the apartment. It is almost worth staying at Villa Virginia just to be close to this little gem. It does great seafood, and if you go to the terrace you get the best views of the bay of Naxos and Mount Etna - simply breathtaking. It was also the only restaurant in Sicily we found to do great desserts!

Teresa is the manager of the Villa and she was on hand to sort any problems out. She greeted us with a warm welcome even though our flight was delayed and we got to the apartment late at night.

I would very much recommend Villa Virginia for couples. It is great value for such wonderful views and lovely location. I would definitely return to Villa Virginia if I went back to Taormina for another holidy.
