  • The apartment was small but clean and very convenient for seeing the town. As we were travelling with our adult son we had requested accommodation for 3 adults. The sofa bed provided for was totally inadequate. Our son was unable to sleep on it properly & had to manage on the sofa as was. On the up side the building provided wonderful views from the roof terrace and facilities to wash ( very necessary while travelling for a month). The people were very helpful in organising a fantastic tour of Etna and with local information.

  • Very well located apartment for the main tourist area. Nice little balcony off of the bedroom and great views from the roof terrace which is shared with the other apartments in the building.

  • Francesca and the team were very helpful and sent us all the information in time. While we were there they responded to texts very quickly and were very accommodating. The apartment was clean and light and it's really near the centre.
    The one negative thing that I would say is that the kitchen has only very basic equipment so if you're keen to cook, then you can't get too complicated.
    The roof terrace is incredible, with amazing views of the town, the coast and mount Etna. We had a fantastic time.

  • The apartment is exactly as pictured, conveniently located just a minutes walk from the main pedestrian street, very clean, simple but comfortable. We never saw the hosts but they were very responsive on email and there is a computer available for use in the building so you can reach them via (website hidden) with any issues. Great choice if you want the privacy of your own place.

  • Taormina!! What a fantastic place.... We had a fabulous stay in Francesca's apartment. The location is sensational and the rooftop made this accommodation great. Francesca was very accommodating with an early check which was very helpful ;-). Thanks for everything. We will be back...

  • This apartment was very nice, clean and in a great location one street away from the main corso. It had a lovely rooftop terrace which we would recommend spending one night up there enjoying dinner (we enjoyed a great tuscan wine, arancini balls and cannoli).

    Outside of these positives, we did encounter some issues, the most notable being the check in process. While an email was promised the day before with directions and details of check in, no such email was forthcoming. This meant that, due to the tourist office not being open on a Saturday (which was utterly ridiculous but not the Owner's fault), we were forced to pay 10 Euro to take a cab to find the place (which we could have easily walked to). On top of this, the owner wasn't initially contactable, which resulted in a further headache and more money being spent trying to call her (incurring roaming charges). In hindsight, most of this would have been easily resolved if an email with clear instructions was sent prior.

    Once the above was resolved however, the owners were more than helpful, allowing us to drop our bags a few hours before check in and enjoy the town while the apartment was cleaned.

    In addition to the above, the washing machine wasn't that useful and required the owners to be contacted to remove our clothing as it locked up on us. The owners again were quite helpful here, restarting the cycle and putting the towel on the line.

    We also had issues with hot and running water pressure (which apparently were the result of an issue with Taormina's water supply).

    Notwithstanding the above, the stay itself was pleasant with WiFi, a clean bathroom and comfortable bed. Based on other places we stayed in throughout Europe, assuming the above issues were resolved and considering the general cost of the accommodation at Taormina, we would recommend this place.
