Good location for a Sicily sojourn!

  • 3 of 5

This place is located on the road which runs along the shore below Taormina - the view of Isola Bella is spectacular! The beach there is only a 10 minute walk (downhill), but there is significant traffic, very little parking, and no sidewalk on much of the journey - we never felt truly intimidated, but with children it might be a little dicey, because there are no shoulders to speak of, and so you are walking on a narrow 2-way road the whole trip.... We found all the drivers on the road very courteous to pedestrians.

Depending on where you go down to the beach, there are 130-150 steps to negotiate (down is easy).... There is a cable car (also a 10 min. walk from the apartment) which runs from the road above the beach to Taormina every 10-15 min. or so. However, if you take it up and down after a dinner in Taormina, you face an uphill 10-min. walk to the apartment. We opted to take a taxi up and down most of the time (Taxi Cacopardo) - they were reliable and courteous. We also used them for a full day trip to Etna + winery tour, and had a great time - Marco was our driver (excellent!!).

The apartment was clean, well-equipped, and nicely decorated. The kitchen was small but functional. WiFi worked fine in the main living room (the router was next door), but not in any of the bedrooms.

About the bedrooms: all the beds were nice and big, all the bathrooms (one for each bedroom) had a sink, toilet, bidet, and shower. The A/C worked fine, as did the plumbing, most of the time. But the location of the 3 bedroom/bathroom combos in the apartment is fairly strange. The master bedroom/bathroom is up a beautiful but tight spiral stair case from the living area. The 2nd bedroom (which my wife and I used), is separated from the master bedroom suite by a few stairs and two exterior doors, both with deadbolts keyed on both sides (and different keys). The 3rd bedroom is across a hallway from the living area - and the apartment front door and the 3rd bedroom door also have dual keyed deadbolts (with different keys!). Developing a key strategy is important....

Bottom line, we did have a great time on our visit - and the apartment location had a lot to do with that. But because of the apartment's idiosyncrasies I would recommend it only for young adult couples or parents traveling with teenagers.

Fabulous apartment and stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is lovely, beautifully furnished and the pool is actually much nicer and bigger than the photo shows, albeit it looses the sun mid afternoon. Great location for a 5 minute walk down to the cable car to get up to the town.

Simple, elegant, practical with stunning views of the mediterranean

  • 5 of 5

The location of the apartment is ideal, with views onto Isola Bella that just take your breath away. Breakfast and dinner on the terrace were quite special, we felt integrated into the nature of the island. The apartment is beautifully decorated, impeccable, practical to use with all the necessary amenities to make every day life easy...specially with four kids ! The only thing that you have to be aware of is that two of the three bedrooms are detached from the apartment, but it works, specially since the condominium is quite private and safe. The private beach is a luxury, the water is simply stunning. I highly recommend this flat for a summer rental.

Taormina has a prime location to explore the east coast of Sicily. The town stretches on rocky buttresses steeply to the sea, where there are a series of small beaches and headlands. Taormina also maintains numerous historical testionianze in Sicily: The theater, the Odeon and the naval battles of Greek-Roman era; the castle, the cathedral, the walls and gates of the city of the Middle Ages; Corvaja Palace and many more of the old town in crates Catalan Gothic and Renaissance.
