We loved everything about our stay at Villa Virginia, from the minute we arrived to when we left...it was great!

Virginia was so so helpful, right from our first email enquiry, and when we arrived in Sicily, throughout our stay, and even when we returned home. She asked us to call / text when we were leaving Catania airport, which we did, and she called us to reassure us that Pina (her mother) would be there to greet us when we arrived. We couldn't find the address in our sat nav and Virginia stayed on the phone to us whilst we sorted it out and text us again to check we were ok and on our way.

We were greeted by Pina and another lady who were both lovely! They did not speak English but this wasn't a problem as Virginia was on hand other than for a couple of hours when she herself was on a flight, but she text as soon as she could to check we had settled in ok. The only very small issue we had was with the parking, as the spaces are extremely tight and when all of the other spaces were occupied we found it very difficult to manoeuvre our car in to a space so on a few occasions we parked on the road (which is free) to avoid risking damage to the hire car, but this was just being over cautious!

The apartment itself is extremely spacious for a couple, its light and airy and very welcoming. Its decorated well and kitted out to a high and modern spec. It had everything we needed to cook, such as sharp knives, washing up liquid, cloths, and good pans etc. It has a balcony / terrace which goes from all the way along the side of the apartment to the balcony at the front. The terrace had some sunshine up until lunch time and enough space to get the sun-beds out and relax in the early morning sun. There was lots of useful information in the apartment about places to go, bus times, and even recommendations of local wines to try.

The location was fine for us, and yes there are steps... quite a few of them! We made a few sweaty treks up there with our shopping bags (from the supermarket which is down the bottom near the main boulevard!) which took about ten mins or so, but to be honest the views are absolutely worth it and we enjoyed being away from the buzz of the main town. We had many nights sat on our balcony admiring the duel aspect views overlooking the bays of Taormina. (and anyway there's a bus or taxi if you're that fussed).

We would definitely stay here again and would recommend this to friends and family!
