About the property

2 bedrooms, living room with view and stunning terrace

Set on one of the most sought after locations of Taormina, the chic and picturesque town that is also renown as 'the pearl of the Mediterranean sea'. The terrace offers stunning views on Taormina, the sea and the volcano Etna. The apartment is only a few steps away from the ancient Greek theatre and from the cable car which ferries tourists to and from the seaside resorts down along the coast. The first level consists of a living room with open kitchen, a single sofa bed of high quality, dining table with six chairs and a window with a view on Taormina, the sea and Mount Etna. The upper level has air-conditioning and consists of a bedroom with double bed and an en-suite bathroom with shower, bidet and toilet, and a bedroom with a double sofa bed. The rooms are connected and there is no door in between. Privacy can be created using the separé, altough bathroom and terrace can only be reached through the other room. The terrace has a set of table and chairs and offers a unique view.

Exploring Mount Etna: Taormina is an excellent base from which to explore Mount Etna and its surroundings. The villages of Etna, such as Piedimonte Etneo, Castiglione and Francavilla di Sicilia and Randazzo are famous for their ancient lava flows, the architecture of their seventeenth century churches, their delicious local produce and the hospitality of the villagers. Situated 700 metres above sea level, they are a favourite retreat of the city dwellers who, in summer are in search of cool, fresh air, while in winter are in search of snow for skiing. Few people are aware that Etna is a popular location for skiers in winter. On some glorious days in winter, it’s even possible to ski the frozen slopes in the morning enjoying a wonderful panoramic view of the Mediterranean, and then, the same afternoon, go and sunbathe on the beaches below.

Taormina: Taormina has been a very popular tourist destination since the 19th century. It has popular beaches on the Ionian sea, which is remarkably warm and has a high salt content. Beautifully restored medieval buildings, breathtaking views around every corner and a giddy network of winding streets strewn with shops, bars and restaurants make for a perfect holiday spot. Just south of Taormina is the Isola Bella, a nature reserve and a beautiful bay. Tours of the Capo Sant' Andrea grottos are also available. Taormina is built on an extremely hilly coast, and is approximately a forty-five minute drive away from Europe's largest active volcano, Mount Etna. Many manifestations and events are organised during the summer in Taormina. The exceptional frame for pop and classical concerts, opera and important performances is the Ancient Theatre. Taormina is served by its very own cable car which ferries tourists to and from the seaside resorts down along the coast.

The elegant palazzo can be reached by walking towards the Greek theatre, turning left in a ascending side street (with about 20 steps). The houses’ location in the centre of Taormina makes it ideal for a stay at any time of the year. Taormina is blessed with sunshine all year round.

Nice appartment with beautiful view in a calm area

The appartment is well situated in Taormina in a peaceful area just next to Teatro Greco and porta Messina.

Sicily's pearl Taormina. Panoramic Casa di Eva.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time in this clean, fully equipped appartment with its fantastic location in the historic center of Taormina, near the Greek-Roman amfitheatre. Not to forget its marvellous panoramic view on the bay of Giardini Naxos and the Etna. And its nearby gondolatrain to Taormina's beaches.

Wonderful Taormina & Casa di Eva

  • 5 of 5

Just had a fabulous week in Taormina surely the jewel of Sicily!

Casa di Eva was a charming apartment, mod cons in a solid and genuine old townhouse set just off the Via Teatro Greco, a charming street of gift and craft shops with artists painting in the street.

The apartment has a wonderful roof terrace with views across all directions - the sea and Giardini Naxos, Mount Etna, the castle above and the mountains to the north east.

Turn left out of the front door and you can reach the essential cable car which takes you down to Mazarro & Isola Bella beaches.

Can thoroughly recommend this apartment and the beauty of Taormina.

Fantastic location, incredible views

  • 3 of 5

Fantastic location, moments from the Greek Theatre, five to ten mins by foot to the bus stop (via back route following path) with regular buses to Catania and the airport and a few mins (again via back path) to the cable cars taking you down to the beach. Accommodation comfortable and well equipped (no kettle or hair dryer when we were there though). We were disappointed with the crumbling paint on an upstairs wall in particular. The flat is modern in style but located in an extremely old, characterful building. We arrived after a period of rain and damp, and this was evident, the appearance of the wall was quite a surprise. Hopefully the "problem wall" will be sanded down and re-painted for the next guests. There was no feeling of damp in the apartment, it was more of a cosmetic problem. Also some cosmetic improvements needed, eg sections of sealant very old and black/discoloured around shower. Don't be put off, feedback has been given and hopefully improvements now made, something perhaps to check though. Apartment fine for our children (6 and 9) but caution needed on the stairs and certainly on the terrace. The views from the terrace are really incredible, but the walls are not very high and we were very vigilant when up on the terrace with the children. Overall a really great apartment particularly if location is a priority, and as long as feedback is taken on board re decor.

Wonderful apartment in Taormina

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is on a quiet walkway, just seconds away from the hustle and bustle of the main streets of Taormina. The rooms were clean and tidy when we arrived, and were larger than we thought from looking at the web site. The only issue was the kitchen equipment, the pots and pans had seen better days, the cutlery was also poor, there was not one sharp knife. And as a tea drinker the lack of a kettle and tea pot was more than a slight irritation! There were however three coffee makers. We would recommend the flat, due to it's location, the wonderful balcony and that incredible view.
