“Perfect introduction to Sicily”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2012

Our family of 11 stayed at the Lemon Tree 3 nights. We rented 3 apartments, The Limoncello, The Alcantara and The Simeto. All accommodations were wonderful. Karen & Diego were the perfect hosts. We drove to The Lemon Tree from the Catania airport and got hopelessly lost for 2 hours. We called The Lemon Tree, Karen arrived on her scooter to escort us to the property. The moral here... follow Karen & Diego's directions on how to get to The Lemon Tree. One night Karen & Diego asked our group if we would like to join them for a BBQ. What a fabulous evening. The meal was wonderful, perhaps one of the best we had in Sicily!

The Lemon Tree Villa owned and run by Karen and Diego - is private, specious, modern and well maintained. Nestled in the hillside overlooking the bay and town of Taormina.
They offer, along with their team of chauffers, a very reasonablely prices shuttle to and from the town any time day and night.
As a wedding photographer with over 20 years’ experience, I have worked with wedding planners many times over the years, but Karen and Diego are exceptional. They listen to requests, and plan accordingly, and have the contacts to arrange everything from buttonholes to the most lavish of banquets.
If you are thinking of your wedding in Taormina ,Sicily, I would not hesitate to recommend The Lemon Tree Apartments , and Karen and Diego to you, As I entrusted them to arrange my daughters wedding day in June 2012 and it was a truly perfect day. Thank you guys.

Just back a few days after a wonderful family get together in The Lemon Tree. Twenty-one of us arrived from different parts of the globe to meet local relations in Sicily. We booked seven of the eight apartments, each of which has its own unique character. All apartments were very well equipped with spectacular views. Karen and Diego were kept busy driving us to local shopping centres or sightseeing trips for a small fee. We made a lot of use out of the Table Tennis and Foosball tables on site. The swimming pool is small but adequate and there were plenty of sun beds around it. Normally, I choose to stay in the centre of where I'm visiting and like to be able to walk to shops and restaurants but this time being a little distance away from everything meant that we tended to hang around The Lemon Tree and socialize a lot more as a family. The Simeto has a very large sitting and dining area and tended to be the focal point for evening get togethers. One evening Karen and Diego put on a typical Sicilian meal of several courses with local organic wine provided. We all sat around one long table on the terrace. The meal was superb and was very good value. Karen and Diego did everything to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. We hope to return there for another family reunion in a few years time.

Room Tip: The Simeto is ideal for entertaining a large family
