“This is a beautifully appointed apartment which is ideally located in the center of Taormina.”

This is the nicest vacation rental I have ever stayed in. It is beautifully decorated and every detail has been included. Federica and her father, Armando, were pleasant, kind and helpful in every respect. The apartment is perfectly located in the historic center of Taormina, but manages to be very private, quiet and secure. I was there with my fiancee, but there is a very nice loft bed room which would work well for a third person or child. Plus they have a secure parking garage right next door. I could not recommend it more highly

My Husband and I stayed at this fantastic apartment for 4 days with our university student daughter - its was very clean, new bathroom, comfortable, very central, quiet, everything worked well, check in is was super easy, efficient and welcoming. Excellent. There is a supermarket and a fish market near the Porta Catania - restaurants in Taormina over charged and the food we had was terrible - you can buy fabulous fresh food and eat in like kings. Also the bakery opposite the house has wonderful fresh ravioli. A truck selling fish came to the street the morning we left [we had been there over easter].

“First class accommodation - central location”

We spent a lot of time researching Taormina and places to stay but we certainly got it right with this property. Armando has been very helpful (and prompt) from start to finish from the original booking to greeting us at the apartment. The property is in a lovely side street off the Corsa Umberto, very central but also quiet. The finish of the apartment is of a very high standard. There are many restaurants nearby to choose from, we would particularly recommend Myle & Gambero Rosso. You have try the granita and brioche at the Bam Bar too! (all very close to the apartment). We used the local Etna bus service from Catania airport to Taormina which cost 7.50 euros per person, each way- a very reasonable price. It takes approx 1.5 hours.Taormina itself is a spectacular place to visit. The views are stunning, especially from Madonna della Rocca & Saracen Castle but take some strong walking shoes for all of those steps! We cannot rate Taormina highly enough and our accommodation went a long way to making our stay very special. Hopefully we shall be back and we would only ever stay in Armando's apartment.

“Five star apartment in the centre of the beautiful town of Taormina”

My wife and I spent six nights in the apartment, spacious, comfortable, quiet, and close to everything in the Town. Helpful people and friendly all around us including the small shop opposite where we picked up all essentials and presents to take home. Cooking in the apartment was easy, but it was so easy to walk out and find a restaurant practically on the doorstep. We intend returning, and enjoy all the parts we missed whilst lazing and relaxing.'

My sister and I spent three days in Frederica's beautiful apartment. The location could not have been better. Close to the main pedestrian street, adjacent to coffee and croissants for breakfast, groceries and restaurants but in a quiet corner away from noise. The apartment was so clean we thought we must be the first ever guests. The decor is modern, the apartment comfortable and the bathroom spacious and beautiful with a heated towel rack. Our host Armando was extremely helpful, going out of his way to take us to a travel agent to arrange for the ferry from Catania to Naples. We had thought we had to go back to Palermo to catch a ferry. We loved Taormina. The weather was wonderful. We walked down to the beach but taxied back up. The public garden is beautiful and the Greek/Roman theatre stunning. We wished we could stay longer and hope to return.

“Armando's apartment is beyond perfect!”

This apartment is the best place you can stay in Taormina. The location is perfect - just off the main street. The apartment is beautiful - it has everything you can possibly need and more. The shower is amazing. Even in 34 degrees heat you don't need to use the air conditioning as the apartment is lovely and cool. Although you are really near the main street with all the bars and restaurants, it is a really quiet apartment so we slept really well. There are really nice restaurants right beside the apartment. There is also a friendly mini market beside the apartment - convenient for stocking up the kitchen. Armando is the nicest host ever. We were really delayed arriving on the first night - 4am! and he just laughed it off and could not have been nicer about it. The next morning he spent an hour with us helping us park our rental car in the best car park and then he brought us to a cafe and bought us some delicious granite (crushed ice, fruit and cream with brioche - yum!) Armando is lovely! I cannot recommend staying in this apartment enough and I would love to go back. Taormina is a fabulous destination.
