Lovely apartment in Taormina. It' s located in a beautiful and quite contest, away from the crowded streets. There is no need for a car. The greek theatre is nearby and the old villa comunale ( the city park) just round the corner. Not far from the historical and pedestrian center ( called Corso Umberto), you easily can reach the most famous restaurants, pubs, pizzerias and discos, the main monuments of Taormina, and obviously Piazza Ix Aprile, from where you admire a breathtaking scenery. The taxi station, the bus station and the cable- car ( the best way to go the sea) can be reached on foot only in 10 minutes. House is perfect for young couple and old couple too, with one or two children.

Wij hebben twee dagen overnacht in het appartement Casa del Minotauro van Mario. Hij is een perfecte gastheer en kwam ons aan de rand van Taormina ophalen. Op de scooter loodste hij ons door de stad. Heel fijn, want zelfs met een TomTom is Taormina een uitdaging ;-). Mario is een perfecte gastheer en weet veel over de stad en de omgeving. In het appartement staan stadsgidsen in alle gewenste talen! Het appartement is perfect gelegen in een rustig straatje, vlak bij de stadstuin Villa Comunale, de winkelstraten en natuurlijk het prachtige Teatro Antico. Het appartement is van alle gemakken voorzien: goed 2-persoons bed in aparte slaapkamer, veel kastruimte, douche, toilet, bidet, wasmachine, keuken met koffieapparaat, koelkast, TV en een bedbank in de woonkamer. Alles erop en eraan. Het appartement is super schoon. En, ook fijn, wij mochten de auto parkeren in de garage, ideaal!

We have stayed 8 nights in Casa del Minotauro, 3 adults and 1 child. The house is very conveniently located in the center of Taormina yet away from all the noise of this beautiful city. It is the perfect choice if you want to reach all the sights and restaurants and in the same time, relax and sleep during night time. The apartment if fully equipped with everything you need, more that expected. It is big enough for an extended family and very clean. Mario and his family are very welcoming, giving you all the advice you need. Overall, a very good choice for Taormina that I will recommend to all my friends.

This is a great apartment finished to a very high specification and perfectly positioned in Taormina for exploring the town and visiting the beach by cable car. We received a very warm welcome from Mario and everything we could want was provided in the apartment.

I really enjoyed my two-week stay at Casa del MInotauro. The apartment is modern, well equipped, and comfortable. It's a stone's throw from the Italian language school where I was studying, Babilonia, and within easy reach of two small markets and countless restaurants and shops. The apartment is on the ground floor, with four steps up. It's on a very small road with no parking -- if you have a car, you'll need to drop off your luggage, then take your car to one of the multi-level garages at either end of town. My only complaint is that the walkway to the door is a bit bedraggled and unwelcoming. It could do with some potted plants

Myself and my two girlfriends stayed in Casa Minotauro for 7 nights in July and had the most wonderful holiday! We got a bit lost finding the apartment as we didn't ask Mario for the full address and when you type casa minotauro in google maps it does not take you to the right address! (our fault) but we rang Mario and he kindly met us and walked us to the apartment. He showed us around, telling us how everything worked: the anti-theft system, wifi, air conditioning etc. He also pointed out good places to visit on the map, where the bus stations were and how to get to the beach (cable car or bus). He gave us membership tickets to the paradise beach resort, which we went to on 4 of the days! It is 12 euros 50 per person, which includes the bus return from the hotel (just around the corner from the apartment), a sun lounger on the private beach and by the pool. It was lovely as the public beach (Isobella) reached by cable car is stony and although it is stunning we wanted to relax on sun loungers on some days. The apartment was very clean, tidy and spacious and being self-catered had everything you needed, dishwasher, washing machine, cooker, kettle, plates & cutlery etc. The double glazing was very good, no noise at night! Me and my friends took it in turns to sleep on the sofa bed, which was very comfortable. The actual bed in the bedroom was really comfy and the wardrobe space was enormous! Once we had explored the area more we realised just how close the apartment was to the centre of town, literally a 2 minute walk! It's right by the greek theatre, which we visited on the last day, very beautiful. As three young ladies we felt very safe staying in the apartment and with Mario leaving his phone number we knew we could contact him with any problems. When the wifi cut out a couple of times and we couldn't work the dishwasher he was very helpful! All in all a brilliant holiday and for a really reasonable price! We would definitely recommend this to our friends and family. Thanks Mario! Rosie, Kathryn and Jess

This apartment was perfect! My partner and I were greeted by Mario, his wife and a friend who were keen to show us the apartment and had lots of information to give about the area. They were very helpful and very welcoming. The apartment was stunning - much brighter than the photos shown currently - and the whole place was extremely clean and with high spec bathroom and kitchen. Although there is no outside space, in Taormina you do not need it - the centre is literally a few minutes away on foot. However, the location of this apartment means that you do not hear the hustle and bustle - it is very peaceful and quiet. We were very lucky that Mario was able to arrange parking on site, I'm not sure if this is standard, and parking is usually NOT available with self catering places in Taormina. If you can, avoid driving as it's not easy! We would thouroughly recommend this apartment, and Taormina, it was a wonderful holiday and would definitely return should we visit Sicily again. My only regret is that it has taken me so long to write this review - apologies Mario!

This is a brilliant apartment just a couple of minutes walk from Porta Messina, it is at the end of a Cul de Sac so very quiet yet so close to the centre of town. Mario the owner was very helpful and went beyond what we expected and made us feel very welcome. The pictures do not do this place justice at all, it's very spacious and all the fittings etc are very high spec, I think you will struggle finding a nicer place and owner in the centre of Taormina.

About the neighborhood
Taormina is a small town on the east coast of the island of Sicily. This beautiful place has been a very popular tourist destination since the 19th century. The village of Taormina is perched on a cliff overlooking the Ionian sea. Besides the ancient Greek theatre, it has many old churches, lively bars, fine restaurants, and antique shops. Taormina is approximately a forty-five minute drive away from Europe's largest active volcano, Mount Etna. If you are renting a car here in Taormina, please notice that I do not have a parking. It is not possible to park a car in Taormina if you are not a resident, for that reason you have to park it at Taormina's main parking which is: Lumbi only 5 minute walk to apartment or 2 minutes with bus or porta Catania, is only 7 min walk from the apartment. ...
