We had 11 wonderful days at the lemon tree in july, staying in the lovely Etnea apartment. It was ideal for us, spacious, well equipped and very comfortable accomodation with a large terrace to dine and relax on while gazing at views of Taormina, Castlemola, and the Ionian sea.Bliss! I cannot speak highly enough of Karen and Diego our hosts....

About the neighborhood
The Lemon Tree Villa is a 10 minute drive from Taormina/Giardini Naxos train station which is located along the main seafront road SS114, this is also our meeting point. There is ample parking to accommodate all of our guests within our private grounds.

At The Lemon Tree we offer a tranquil base with a relaxed atmosphere, we are well positioned to explore the many wonders of Sicily. Surrounded by olive trees and vineyards, an ideal location for walking and trekking, or just to relax and take in the fantastic views surrounding the area.

The Lemon Tree is located on a mountain 200m above sea level, facing Taormina centre, a 10 minute drive down our hill takes you to various shops, bars and restaurants.
Getting around
Whilst a car is recommended it is not essential. We offer an inhouse shuttle service for a small fee. We pick up/drop off at The Lemon Tree, Taormina and Giardini Naxos operating between 7am and midnight.

Excursions can be organised to any of the local hot spots or tourist sights further afield.

A car is ideal if you want to travel around the island and see the sights, if you want to just chill and stay locally then it is not essential to have a car.
