“Perfectly placed apartment”
Reviewed May 27, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We had the best time here. The apartment is well equipped and comfortable. Italian/Sicilian pillows are very different so take your own if you are a light sleeper. Armando, the owner is helpful and charming. The apartment is perfectly placed just behind the main part of Taormina in a much quieter street and beside the Bam Bar, one of the best bars in Sicily. It closes at about 10pm so no disturbance and opens around 7am for breakfast. There is a tiny supermarket opposite the flat and a little bakery too. You will never run short of restaurants either.

“Fantastico!”
Reviewed April 20, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Where to start!
The location of this apartment could not be better if your looking for a beautiful place to stay in Takrmina. In the heart of the historical centre you are absorbed by the culture and history where everything you need is at hand including the deli over the street to pick up a sandwich before heading to see the fantastic sights and chill on the beach. Armardo was the perfect host. He recommended some great places to eat and was attentive and friendly. Possibly the best place to stay during our 10 days travelling round stunning Sicily. It was definately the right place to finish our holiday. Book here. You won't be disappointed!

“Beautiful Apartment in the Centre of Taormina”

I highly recommend this fantastic apartment. Location is perfect, very close to the main strip, Corso Umberto. It was spotlessly clean, spacious and cool. Small mini-market just outside your door with a plentiful delicatessen. They also prepare sandwiches which were nice to bring to the beach. Isola Bella and other beaches are just a short cable car journey away. Try the Bam Bar next door for delicious granita and brioche. Wonderful stay in beautiful Taormina.

“This is a beautifully appointed apartment which is ideally located in the center of Taormina.”

This is the nicest vacation rental I have ever stayed in. It is beautifully decorated and every detail has been included. Federica and her father, Armando, were pleasant, kind and helpful in every respect. The apartment is perfectly located in the historic center of Taormina, but manages to be very private, quiet and secure. I was there with my fiancee, but there is a very nice loft bed room which would work well for a third person or child. Plus they have a secure parking garage right next door. I could not recommend it more highly

My Husband and I stayed at this fantastic apartment for 4 days with our university student daughter - its was very clean, new bathroom, comfortable, very central, quiet, everything worked well, check in is was super easy, efficient and welcoming. Excellent. There is a supermarket and a fish market near the Porta Catania - restaurants in Taormina over charged and the food we had was terrible - you can buy fabulous fresh food and eat in like kings. Also the bakery opposite the house has wonderful fresh ravioli. A truck selling fish came to the street the morning we left [we had been there over easter].

“First class accommodation - central location”
Reviewed May 23, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We spent a lot of time researching Taormina and places to stay but we certainly got it right with this property. Armando has been very helpful (and prompt) from start to finish from the original booking to greeting us at the apartment. The property is in a lovely side street off the Corsa Umberto, very central but also quiet. The finish of the apartment is of a very high standard. There are many restaurants nearby to choose from, we would particularly recommend Myle & Gambero Rosso. You have try the granita and brioche at the Bam Bar too! (all very close to the apartment). We used the local Etna bus service from Catania airport to Taormina which cost 7.50 euros per person, each way- a very reasonable price. It takes approx 1.5 hours.Taormina itself is a spectacular place to visit. The views are stunning, especially from Madonna della Rocca & Saracen Castle but take some strong walking shoes for all of those steps! We cannot rate Taormina highly enough and our accommodation went a long way to making our stay very special. Hopefully we shall be back and we would only ever stay in Armando's apartment.

“Five star apartment in the centre of the beautiful town of Taormina”
Reviewed May 6, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

person found this review helpful

My wife and I spent six nights in the apartment, spacious, comfortable, quiet, and close to everything in the Town. Helpful people and friendly all around us including the small shop opposite where we picked up all essentials and presents to take home. Cooking in the apartment was easy, but it was so easy to walk out and find a restaurant practically on the doorstep. We intend returning, and enjoy all the parts we missed whilst lazing and relaxing.'
