About this listing

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!!
wow wow wow - I have stayed in over 50 airbnbs and this one is by far the best. If you are going to Taormina it's a can't miss! Make sure you get up early and watch the sunrise from the balcony - spectacular.
The hosts certainly deserve there super host title. Came and picked us up when we got very lost (my advice, call them when you get to the main town in Taormina and get directions from there.
The house is large and has EVERYTHING you need - a true home away from home like airbnb should be. Top marks.
Our experience at Francesco and Lilliana's house was absolutely PERFECT!!! Me and my fiancé, my mum and dad stayed for 4 days in Taormina and our stay was made very comfortable at Francesco and Lillianas. The view is amazing, the house was big and very clean! We wish we could have stayed longer! Francesco met us on the first day and showed us around and answered many questions.
Thank you for such a fantastic first airbnb experience!!! Elena and co!
Francesco met us at the highway exit and led us to his beautiful home. He explained everything about the house and made sure all of our questions were answered, and even grabbed his own corkscrew to lend us and make sure we had one that worked. He was also able to give us a great lead on a private Mount Etna tour-- it was FABULOUS and worth every penny! Please ask him about this if you have any interest in Mount Etna. The home was spacious and very comfortable, and it was refreshing to have a big bathroom, nice towels and a decent bed after some other rough stays in Italy. Everything was clean and the view from the balcony was gorgeous! The wifi was GREAT as well. As other reviews mentioned, it was a VERY steep walk from town, but for the great place and views, it was worth it and it was great exercise! I would highly recommend a visit to Taormina and definitely stay with Francesco!
What a lovely, charming flat just above Taormina! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house has a great feel to it and has been furnished with lots of love and detail, it really has everything one could possibly need. Francesco and Liliana were great and very helpful - thank you again for making us feel welcome.
The steep road didn't stop us at all walking and driving up and down, but it is very steep indeed.
My husband and I stayed in Francesco and Liliana's house for two nights in June. The house is immaculate, and the view just as you see it on the pictures, breathtaking. It's very quiet to sleep at night, which is nice as we didn't get that luxury ini the rest of our trip in Sicily. Francesco and Liliana were both really nice and gave us some recommendations for things to do on our arrival.
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!
