Francesca nous avait communiquer des informations très précises tant au niveau du parking que de la manière d'accéder au logement. Nous avons apprécié la confiance dont elle a fait preuve envers nous.
Francesca est venue nous voir et très gentiment a répondu à nos questions sur la ville et les diverses possibilités d'activité. Ses conseils tant au niveau des excursions, des bons restaurants ou "gelateria" ont été excellents. L'appartement est bien situé dans Taormina qui est une ville magnifique mais tout en hauteur où il faut utiliser constamment les escaliers des rues.
Je vous remercie pour les choses positives que vous avez écrit dans la revue. Merci aussi pour les conseils sur l'équipement de la cuisine. Surement achèterai et amènerai des autres choses nécessaires pour preparer les repas.
We communicated with our host with text messages, which was fine. Directions to the apt were extensive but we managed to take a turn and enter town via a different avenue. A very frustrating hour to find the parking structure and then lugging two suitcases up 82 steps on a hot day was not s good start. Especially when we realized that with good directions we could have dropped the luggage at the front door.
The apt is very basic, but clean and adequate. It is central to the main drag in town. Yes, there is music until midnight, but not too offensive with the A/C on.
The roof terrace is a bit oversold. a beuutiful view but it was not clean to the point that we did not want to sit down. The furnishings need to be fully replaced and in hot weather it needs a good awning to shield the relentless sun.
First of all thank you for choosing my apartment. Thank you also for showing me things which could be improved. From now on I will give alternative directions to avoid the stairs. However, consider that since the street where the flats are located has been closed to the traffic, unfortunately there is actually no way to get there by car, unless you enter the street in the wrong direcion.
Regarding the shadow in the terrace, I know that shadow would be good, but Taormina may be really windy and this makes it difficult to get a gazebo: I put one at the beginning and it flew beacuse of the strong wind, it can also be a bit dangerous. Regarding the furniture, all of it is just three years old; you know, with such a weather and a lot of sun in the long Sicilian summer they may look older than they actually are, but they are clean, maybe just dirtied by the sun.
Hope besides these issues you pointed you enjoyed your vacation.
Great hosting by francesca and her team. Very easy self check in and always on hand if you need any help or anything explained. The apartment was great...good sized bedrooms, bathroom and kitchen and the roof terrace was absolutely beautiful. Superb location in taormina, would highly recommend for a short break.
The apartment was very clean and had everything we needed. Francesca was very helpful with information about Taormina. The price was also very reasonable for the town.
Dear Catherine, I am sorry for the water heating and the fridge issue. Regarding the water heating I told the cleaning lady knows she should not switch it off, therefore I don't know what happened. Maybe the previous guests switched it off. Regarding the fridge, inside it there is a control know to turn, which I assumed is easy to figure out. Thank you for letting me know, I will pay more attention to it.
Die Gastgeber sind super nett und sehr hilfsbereit.
Nur leider entsprach die Wohnung nicht unseren Erwartungen.
Lieblos eingerichtet, definitiv zu laut und die Parkplatzproblematik wird im Vorfeld auch nicht erwähnt. Man muss das Auto im Parkhaus für 2€ pro Stunde abstellen!
Genial ist dafür die Dachterrasse und die Lage!
The apartment and above all the roof terrace is wonderful. Despite that there is no reception (you have to get the keys out of a safe in the garden) everything works wonderfully. Francesca is always available on the phone and explains everything. Please notice, that there is no parking possibility in Taormina and to park a car costs about 30 € for two days in a official car park. We enjoyed our stay and we got to know nice people in the house. Francesca was there on our second day an gave us some good restaurant advice. We had to stay a little longer because our flight was only in the evening and she made it possible. Go to Malavisa-Restaurant near Porta Catania!
thank you for your advise, I know it gets really hot during sunny days. Actually in the previous years there was a gazebo on the terrace, but windy days and nights are quite frequent in Taormina during the whole year, and you understand that this is a remarkable problem for the gazebo. Unfortunately also, stable structures are forbidden in Taormina because of aesthetic reasons....
Appartement bigger than expected. Confortable. Music until midnight in a near restaurant but I think it is the same everywhere in the village.
Francesca is professional and kind.
