About This Listing
If you are looking for a place where to enjoy the beautiful mood of Taormina and the relaxing atmosphere of a quiet surrounding with a breath taking view of the sea, we can offer the perfect accommodation.
The house is located on top of a hill facing the sea, 10-15 minutes walking (1km) from "Porta Messina" one of the two entrance arches to the city centre. The apartment consists of 3 bedrooms (2 double bedrooms - 1 with private bathroom and 1 double bedroom with bunk bed), 1 big bathroom with bath and a large living room with fully equipped kitchen. The apartment is provided with dish machine, washing machine, air conditioning, heating, Wi-Fii and TV in the living room. Bed linen, towels + the initial and final cleaning of the apartment are included. Free parking is readily available outside in front of the house.
Surrounded by the countryside with the typical Mediterranean vegetation, runners and walkers frequent the area.
Cafes, restaurants bars and grocery shops are in walking distance.
The owners, Francesco & Liliana are reliable, friendly, helpful, caring, funny and genuinely hospitable.
Very reasonably priced, we are completing the external front of the building (see photos), but inside the apartment is complete, confortable and new. Also please consider that to reach the house there is a steep uphill climb for about 150 meters, but the terrific view from the balcony definitely worth it.
It is also very quiet at night and there are few streetlights so, though considering this when coming back, you can surely enjoy sweet nights under a wonderful starry sky!!
Wir waren zu Zweit in der Wohnung von Awesome view in Taormina und von Anfang an überrascht, dass es noch schöner war, als wir es uns vorgestellt haben Francesco und Liliana haben uns überaus herzlich begrüsst (und sogar von der Autobahnabfahrt abgeholt).
Der riesige Balkon hat eine wahnsinnige Aussicht. Diese Wohnung, diese Gastgeber, diesen Ort kann ich wärmstens empfehlen.
We had a lovely stay at Francesco's apartment, the views are spectacular! The apartment was beautifully clean and furnished and the balcony perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine. Francesco was the perfect host, we can't thank him enough! Highly recommend for a stay in Taormina!
The stay at Liliana's place was amazing. She was a god sent as the car rental company didn't provide a car seat as requested and she graciously loaned us one of her son's seats which saved our trip. She was quick to answer my questions too. The house and the views are amazing. The house is well equipped,most importantly for us,with a washing machine. The hills going to the house are steep but we walked with a toddler and a pram ,no problems. Also there's a local bus if you get too weary.
Beds super comfortable,we slept like logs the whole time.
All in all,it was a great stay,extremely relaxing. I would recommend this house to everyone considering Taormina and the surrounds. Thank you Liliana and Francesco!
A lovely, perfectly appointed, clean, tastefully decorated, quiet oasis with a magnificent view above the bustle of Taormina. We loved every minute! It even had secure parking for our rental Fiat Panda. For those with difficulty getting around, I should mention that it's a fairly steep, 900 meter walk to town, but well worth it for us (ages 68 & 62). Or a €10 taxi ride. Liliana was a perfect host and had thought of everything. If we ever visit Taormina again -- and we just might -- this is where we will stay!
Amazing place to stay! The view was divine. We are our breakfast out on the deck in the sunshine each day.
Location was great, it is about 1km up the hill from the main part of town, totally walkable. We left our car up there and walked into town each day and back again, and down and up again for dinner. It was fine. If you had heavy bags it would be a bit of a struggle, some parts are quite steep.
The house itself was brilliant. So much room. Great kitchen to cook in - everything you need.
Thanks so much Francesco & Liliana!
We enjoyed a wonderful 5 day stay in Francesco and Liliana's beautiful apartment. Not only are the views spectacular from the living room and our bedroom, the apartment is spacious, light and incredibly comfortable.
Francesco welcomed us and shared many suggestions about where to eat, where to shop for food and great local walks. He was even kind enough to send us a specific map of a local walk from castle molla.
I was very impressed with how considerate Francesco was as I needed a strong internet connection to complete some work. He went out of his way to make sure that the Internet worked really well the whole time we were there.
Sehr schöne saubere und geschmackvoll eingerichtete Wohnung mit großem Balkon, von dem aus man eine wundervolle Aussicht auf`s Meer hat. Die Küche ist mit allen wichtigen Dingen ausgestattet. Unsere Gastgeber Francesco und Liliana sind nett und hilfsbereit. Wir haben uns in ihrem Haus sehr wohl gefühlt und würden jederzeit gerne wieder unseren Urlaub hier verbringen. Herzlichen Dank!
