“Simply perfect!”
Reviewed June 12, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The accomodation was perfect: clean, spacious and well equipped.
As we travelled with another young couple, we have rented 2 apartments (1 and 2) for 9 nights in May 2014.
The views were just gorgeous from both appartments.
Apartment 2 has a magnificent green garden (and also an olive tree), which allowed us to eat outside.
In order to reach the center of Taormina, one must climbe some stairs near Madonna della Roca. Although the climb is not easy, it definitely woth the effort.
We would recommend anyone to stay at Villa Virginia!

“Loved the apartment, would rent again in a heartbeat!”
Reviewed May 24, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

My gf and I rented apartment 3 and really couldn't have been happier with it! The apartments are very modern and clean with everything you could possibly need. The views are incredible! Virginia (property manager) was incredibly helpful as were her parents who met us at the apartment to let us in and show us around. The Al Saraceno restaurant recommended by Virginia is a 5-6 minute walk from the apartment, gives a 10% discount to those staying in Villa Virginia and serves fantastic food, we visited 3 times during the week! Broadband with WiFi and satellite TV in the apartment were also great!

A few things worth noting if you are renting here, though none of these should put you off
- The apartment is on a windy road about 10 minute drive above Taormina, the road is quite narrow so rent a small car.
- There are steps down to Taormina which take about 15 mins to walk down and 20 to walk back up. There are a lot of steps and it is steep, but actually quite a nice walk, just not with shopping or after a heavy meal!
- You can get a taxi up from the town, most of them know where Villa Ducale is which is right beside Villa Virginia, cost is about €15.
- There aren't many supermarkets around Taormina, the best one we found was the Punto Supermarket (GPS: 37.851584, 15.281221 or address 18 Viale Apollo Arcageta) which is in Taormina, or if you fancy a drive (20mins?) there's a larger (ALDI/LIDL style) supermarket called an InGrosso here GPS: 37.891399, 15.294370.

In summary; lovely apartment in a lovely town that we would rent again and have recommended to friends already!

“Spacious and comfortable - perfect for admiring the stunning view”
Reviewed May 19, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We stayed in Apartment 4 and it proved the perfect base for a relaxing week in Taormina and the surrounding area. The view from the balcony has to be seen to be believed - and is one that would never grow old! The apartment itself was spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean, with all the amenities that you need. Pina was very welcoming and recommended dinner at the nearby Al Saraceno restaurant, which was excellent. Other local sights we enjoyed - apart from everything in Taormina itself - were Castelmola, and, slightly further afield, Savoca. We also took advantage of the excellent value return trip and use of private beach facilities in Mazzeo, recommended in the apartment info. All in all, we couldn't recommend this apartment more highly, and wouldn't hesitate to return.

“Wonderful well-equipped modern apartment with stunning views”
Reviewed May 8, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our six night stay in Spring at this well-equipped, new and modern apartment. Staying on the top floor we had stunning views to Mt Etna which because of the changeable weather differed each day. While a long walk up the well-built steps from lovely Taormina, the location benefits from being peacefully away, though close to the excellent and friendly Al Saraceno restaurant where we ate dinner twice. Virginia and her Mum so very helpful and welcoming, making it a pleasure for us to stay. Good to take the day trip to Mt Etna, it snowed up high that day! Apartment comfortable and so well equipped with washing machine, kettle, fridge, small satellite TV. Easy to locate. Be warned, the garage is quite small (were it to be fully occupied). You need to be fit. Nice walk further up to Castelmola. Leisurely steep walking and climbing steps, with tremendous views made it a peaceful and memorable stay.

“A charming ,well eqipped appartment with a wonderful View”
Reviewed May 6, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

The Villa Virginia ; Via Leonardo da Vinci 70 ( see on Google Earth ) is situated high over the centre of Taormina on the SP 10 to Castelmola. To drive up to the adress takes some getting used to Sicilian traffic "rules", but don't be afraid: even if a car seems to come up(or down) right against you :nothing untoward is going to happen ! Apart from that the villa has a very spacious Garage on the ground floor. The apparment (we had numb.3 ) is in an almost brand -new building,with very well equipped kitchen , bathroom and bedroom ( see webpage ).
The windows are well insulated, so the traffic (after about 5.30 in the morning ) is rather light , but dont forget : This is stll Sicily ! The View from the Balcony and also in the direction of M. Etna, is quite spectacular and even breathtaking. The mother of the manager( she lives in the uk ) is most friendly and helpful. All in all it was a truly memorable and fine vaccation and we would like very much to go there again, but probably in May or June when the weather should be nicer. Absolutey warmly reccomended

“Enchanting”
Reviewed April 20, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We really enjoyed our time at Villa Virginia, the views were fabulous and it was so peaceful. It is perched high above Taormina, well away from the bustle but the bus service makes it easy to access the town. The apartment was spotless and well appointed, the garage is an advantage if you hire a car, as we did, as parking is very difficult in town. Every one was very helpful and certainly made us feel very welcome.

“Fantastic views!”

people found this review helpful

We stayed in Apartment 2 which is on the first floor and has lovely views over the coastline and Mount Etna plus its own private garden which is a real bonus. The apartment is situated on a hill on the outskirts of Taormina and you can reach the town via a nearby pedestrian short cut with steps (in about 10/15 minutes) rather than taking the road. The accommodation is spotless, modern and very comfortable and is situated in a quiet spot whilst being accessible to Taormina and away from the crowds of this popular and picturesque resort. Virginia dealt with the whole booking process extremely efficiently and everything went very smoothly on arrival. We would certainly recommend Villa Virginia!
