Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

What an awesome place in the center of Taormina. Located in Piazza Duomo...close to the town hall, to restaurants, coffee, market.

We spent almost two weeks here for our daughter's wedding which was a two minute walk. Although the Piazza is a very busy place, the apartment is very quiet. There was plenty of space for the makeup and hair lady to get the bride ready.

Fabio was very helpful through the whole process. He arranged the Catania airport transportation both ways...the service was prompt and right on time! The interactive map was very helpful and we enjoyed the link he sent about Taormina history, etc. He was quick to respond to emails.

Rosmarie greeted us at the apartment when we arrived, showed us how to work various gadgets. She also reviewed a map with us along with the local bus schedule. I was given a lovely bouquet of flowers from her the day of the wedding...I'm so grateful for this act of kindness she shared! She also confirmed our transportation for our return to Catania the day before leaving.

Thank you for making this trip so easy for us!

We recently traveled to Sicily and Taormina was the family favorite.

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect for our family, my wife, 18 year old granddaughter, and myself. The apartment is centrally located and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. We flew into Catana and Fabio arranged for a driver to take us to Taormina. No need for a car in Taormina. We were meant by Rosemarie who introduced us to the apartment and was always available to meet our needs. Thank you Rosemarie.No reason to look any further for a place in Taormina. And don't miss the BamBar for the best granita you will ever eat.

great location but needs a good cleaning....

  • 2 of 5

Location, location, location!!!!! This property could not be located in a more convenient area in all of Taormina! We arrived in the charming city of Taormina on April 28th, in the early afternoon. Finding the exact meeting place was problematic as a first time visitor, but after finally finding Rose Marie, our greeter, we were ushered to a convenient parking garage and proceeded to our apartment....Rose Marie was lovely, spoke beautiful English and had loads of information concerning Taormina and its surrounding sites. It was however, difficult getting in touch with her, as we did not have an Italian phone and emails were sometimes unanswered, as Rose Marie was helping out a family member who was gravely ill. Although the location was fabulous and the first impression pleasant, upon looking deeper, the apartment needed a heavy cleaning. The kitchen cabinets were messy, disorganized and frankly, dirty. The same was true of the bathroom cabinets. The shower curtain in the back bedroom was moldy and there were many personal items in many of the cabinets and drawers. As seasoned travelers, this was below standard expectation. Detail was lacking. Also, a notebook with manuals as to how to operate various appliances would have been appreciated. Prior to our visit, we spoke with Fabio, (his mother owns the apartment) several times on our US phone line, as Fabio lives in Canada. It was great being able to speak with Fabio, as he gave us much needed info concerning Taormina, its surrounding areas, and the apartment. When we were in Italy, and unable to get a hold of Rose Marie ( the hot water had inadvertently been turned off) we were able to communicate with Fabio. He was very responsive to our needs. Before leaving the apartment, I spoke to Rose Marie about some of the above mentioned issues. I am hopeful that our concerns will be corrected and the apartment will become a clean, well maintained property.

Owner's Response: Location, Location.... I am glad that you appreciate the convenient location in the historic centre of Taormina. Your idea of a notebook with instructions how to operate dishwasher, washing machines, air conditioners, TV’s and other information is great. Thank you for your comments regarding service and cleanliness. This way we will have the opportunity to change things for the guests to make the property even more attractive and their vacation even more enjoyable. As the matter of facts, Rosa is in the house right now doing upgrades. Regards. Fabio

No better location in Taoromina

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is exactly as advertised, well equipped and furnished, and clean. We (two couples) stayed there a week in mid-October and enjoyed excellent weather. Being right on the piazza we were central to everything, including four weddings in the Duomo. The grocery store is just around the corner if we wanted to cook, or there is a full range of restaurants/cafes within a few hundred meters. We made all our arrangements through Fabio (Rosa's son) with no problems or surprises, and Rosmarie (who is the manager) was only 20 minutes away and could not have been more helpful. If you're planning a stay in Taoromina this is the place. It's also fairly central for day trips. The bus station is a 15 minute walk from the apartment, from which there are frequent and inexpensive runs to Catania, Messina and elsewhere. There is certainly no need for a car or a taxi.

APARTMENT AND LOCATION SUPERB

  • 5 of 5

The property exceeded the description given on the web site. It was extremely comfortable and the location was excellent. To sit on the balcony and watch the world go by and the occasional wedding with a glass of wine cannot be beaten. The booking process with Fabio worked well and Rosemarie the housekeeper was waiting in the square to meet us complete with local maps and info. Would definitely recommend this apartment for a quiet break especially if you enjoy food and wine.

Perfect position

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights in Taormina for our sons wedding and this was a perfect place to stay, it was central, homely and comfortable, so close to everywhere. We loved watching the world go by from the balcony, on one day there were 5 weddings , 2 Christenings and a fantastic vintage car display in the the square. Rosemarie was very helpful and spoke good English, she explained everything we needed to know perfectly. The decor of the apartment is quirky and we loved that, lots of interesting pictures and objects, it's also much bigger than it looks in the photos. Taormina was a perfect backdrop for a wedding and there was plenty to do and see
