“Real Italian experience.”

Absolute value for money and kindly soul in Giovanni. We had all four aparments with essentially three different family units. The apartments were well equipped and Giovanni was always available if we needed anything. We were given fresh eggs every day and fresh vegetables from the garden. The apartments were relatively quiet and gave us all our own separate space. The location is close to Taormina, but it is not walkable to anywhere. You absolutely have to have a car to buy groceries or get a coffee. The road to Finestra is very steep and windy as are all the roads to Taormina. Driving there is quite scary even for an Italian driving veteran like myself.

“Finestra sul Mare di Taormina Fabulous”
Reviewed 14 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We had the most wonderful week. Giovanni was a superb host and very attentive to our needs. The guest house was spotless and perfect for our family needs. Just a short drive to some of the most beautiful beaches we have seen. Ideal for children and sight seeing opportunities in abundance. Grazie Tante

“Very nice guest house with a great view at the see and very friendly Giovanni and his wife”
Reviewed 15 December 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Very nice guest house close to Taormina, a wonderful Sicilian city. One can have a look at the sea from the terrace, that is why it is called "finestra sul mare". But more important is Giovanni's and his wife's very obliging hospitality. We enjoyed our stay very much and can recommend this vacation rental.

Cordiali saluti dalla Germania

“Quiet apartment in Taormina”
Reviewed 30 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We stayed in 'Maria' for 10 days with our two children and nanny. The apartment was conveniently located 5 mns walk to the town and it was quiet. The owner welcomed us when we arrived and ordered pizza for us. She was very nice and helpful. We would recommend this apartment.
