Уютная, чистая и очень светлая квартира с превосходным расположением. Нас встретила Мария которая была очень приветлива и внимательна ко всем нашим просьбам. Изюминка квартиры - это большой балкон на котором мы проводили вечера после пляжа, прогулок, кафе и пр. Дорога до пляжа занимала у нас считанные минуты. Нас немного беспокоило что в квартире не будет кондиционера, но из-за близости к морю вечером в квартире очень комфортная температура. Мы обошли все пляжи Джардини-Наксос и могу сказать, что самый лучший песок находится именно рядом с квартирой. Магазины, кафе и парикмахерская всё это в шаговой доступности. Для любителей свежей рыбы неподалёку есть лавки в которых можно по утрам приобрести свежевыловленную рыбу. Если останавливаться в этом городке, то лучшего места просто нет. Спасибо Фабрицио и Марии за чуткость и внимательность.
Fabrizio est très aimable et nous a beaucoup aidé durant notre séjour. L'endroit est chouette car la mer est à deux pas à pied. Je conseil vivement l'endroit pour une détente familiale à plusieurs.
Although Fabrizio was very friendly and the apartment is really close to the free beaches (only 1 minute to go) it wasn't a good experience to stay at his apartment.
First of all, we had a constant problem with a water. As Fabrizio told me it was a problem in Giardini Naxos but it was really not comfortable that when we have returned from the sea, we couldn't had a shower because all water was spent by our neighbors. We need to share a big tank of a water with neighbors.
Secondly, we didn't find anything important things to live here (soap, papers).
And the biggest problem was that we found 3 big cockroaches in apartment (one of them was in a suitcase and it was really awful) and about 5-6 big cockroaches near the apartment. Fabrizio and his neighbors need to do something with it to improve this situation.
I regret to say that I can't recommend to stay here before Fabrizio will solved all problems, which were described above.
In Giardini Naxos in summer usually there are problem of lack of water but We already have changed the tank in the terrace with a private one and water problem is solved. I wasn't in Giardini naxos during Slava stay but soap and paper are included. The last problem was bad luck, because is the first time I heard about that. i'm really sorry for the drawback
Appartement is very closed to the see and really hudge but there are some issues. First it is a nightmare to park your car, all places are reserved to people who live in Giardini and you have to pay for other places. Concerning thé appartment, it is an old appartement from the 70' with some old format plug in some rooms. We knew that there was no airconditionning then you have to open windows and to fight with mosquitos. And finally, that was the first time in Sicilia that our bed was not done. So the best thing is that it is 20 m from the beach. The owner is really friendly and ready to help you anytime.
Thanks Fabrizio for a wonderful holiday in an apartment in Giardini Naxos from (phone number hidden) on (phone number hidden). We and our kids loved in Giardini Naxos. The apartments are located near the sea, near shops and cafes.The bus stop is next to the house to get to other cities without problems. We'll be back!
Fabrizio's apartment in Giardini-Naxos was perfect for us. The beach was about 50 steps away. Train station is about a 30 min walk or 5 minutes on the bus which allowed us to travel around Sicily a bit (Messina, the Aeolian Islands and Taormina is easy on the bus). It is about a 10 minute walk from a bus stop which serves Catania airport and Taormina. We were concerned that there isn't AC at the flat before getting there, but the fans at the flat were fine for keeping the place cool.
The place had plenty of space for us. The location has a nice atmosphere. Lots of restaurants and lots of people down on the beach during the day and out walking the sea front in the evening (for the passeggiata). In general Giardini is a little bit cheaper than Taormina.
The flat has a kitchen which meant were able to cook for ourselves a few times (and eat out on the nice little balcony). Maria was nearby waiting for us when we arrived and was able to change her plans to meet us earlier than we originally had said for checkout.
In summary, perfect for us and we'll look to stay there in future.

That's the reason why I got these apartments: to go there as often as possible and to invite you to come to Sicily and explore all it can offer!
