We enjoyed our stay in Francesca's apartment - it is a short term holiday home and it was very clean and had everything we needed. Francesca took her time to give us recommendations for our stay and was really helpful. We felt very well looked after. The communal roof garden had wonderful views over Taormina.
The host was very friendly and gave us the information we needed. The neighbourhood was quiet and cosy, but also close to the busy main street - a great location.
We loved Francesca's apartment! We drank wine on the rooftop every evening, and loved the proximity to the center of Taormina. Francesca was super sweet upon our arrival. She's also around the building in case you have questions during your stay. The apartment itself was clean, and had ample space and all the essentials.
Bel appartement très confortable et bien équipé. Belle terrasse sur le toi très agréable d'y manger en regardant la mer. Par contre, quartier très dispendieux, très loin de la plage (environ 1h de Isola Bella et gardini en autobus). De plus, l'appartement est situé dans un quartier très dispendieux et loin de la gare centrale d'autobus.
To get to the apartment, we had to pick up the keys from a safe. The instructions how to get them were clear and sent on time. It did save a lot of hassle, since we didn't have to arrange our arriving time with the owner, however, it did mean that we didn't meet anyone upon our arrival, which made the whole thing more impersonal.
The location is great and the view from the rooftop terrace is simply amazing. There was quite some noise from one of the nearby restaurants in evenings, which we could block by turning on the a/c.
The apartment itself matches the description and was comfortable enough for our 4 day stay. There's an electrical 2 pit stove that was somewhat tricky to get used to, but for basic cooking it was fine.
Wifi connection was very unstable.
Lovely, comfortable and convenient apartment. Fantastic terrace with a wonderful view, quiet area, well-located for the city centre, and Francesca and team were very welcoming, accommodating and helpful. Recommended.
Had a great stay at Francesca's apartment in Taormina.
The department is spacious and clean with a nice kitchen and bathroom. Had sundowners on the roof of the building overlooking the ocean and Mt Etna.
The department is very centrally located just above the main street in town which made exploring very easy and convenient.
Fransesca was also a fountain of information on where to eat and swim as well as other things to do in town.
If coming by car you can park at the Porto Catania car park as you enter the town. Its about a 10 min walk from there to the department.
