“Fantastic Apartment”

Just got back from our trip to Sicily and our stay in Ezio's apartment in Taormina was the highlight of our vacation. Very clean and comfortable. Great sun drenched terrace with a fantastic view of Etna. All of the rooms were very spacious and the kitchen was well equipped with everything you could need to cook a meal. Good wifi access also.
Would definitely recommend this apartment and would rent again.

“A sublime experience”

The apartment is a real gem, in excellent condition throughout and in a great location. It has a big modern kitchen with all the appliances and equipment you need if you intend to cook your main meals. The kitchen opens onto the balcony which is a real sun-trap. It is true what the other reviewers say; there is an interrupted view of Etna which gives an extra pick-me-up to the morning coffee.

The bedroom is spacious with plenty of cupboards and drawers, there is no intrusive noise from the road, and the bed is comfy too. There is proper central-heating in all rooms, which was a definite bonus if you are taking a winter-break.

To cap it all, the location cannot be bettered. The Porta Catania car park offers the simplest, cheap option (discounts for long-stayers) if you have a car and it is only a minute's walk from the apartment. The main shopping street of Corso Umberto is right outside the front-door.

A really good supermarket is exactly 58 steps from the door ( I counted them ) and a two minute circuit of the piazza encompasses a pescheria, a gelateria, several restaurants, fruit & veg stalls, the post-office, and a bar-cafe in front. What more could you want in life !

The perfect "home away from home" experience; I could find no fault with the apartment and can highly recommend it.

I would definitely stay here again.

Many thanks to Ezio and his mum for facilitating a happy and relaxing holiday.

The owner Enzo, was helpful and responded promptly. The apartment is very spacious, clean and well equiped with uninterrupted views of Mt. Etna from the terrace. It is surrounded by restaurants and a supermarket is 50 metres away.. It is located opposite the post office in a square, where there is a stop for the hop on bus, a taxi stand and is the start of beautiful Taormina's promenade street.

“Grand view of Mt. Etna from terrace”
Reviewed 19 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

people found this review helpful

This apartment is perfectly located just outside of the Gate, near the post office and close to the Corso Umberto. (And the only supermarket in Taormina is just a half a block away.) The friendly and conscientious owner, Ezio, has an office on the ground floor and was available most anytime we needed assistance. For example, when we had difficulties with the wi-fi, he arranged for a friend to come and reconfigure our system. For me, the highlight of the apartment was the unobstructed view of Mt. Etna from the large terrace off of the kitchen. We ate breakfast outside every morning and admired the snow-capped peak. (And in the evening, the castle wall and tower across the street are floodlit to add to the charm.) I would be pleased to stay here again.

“A real Gem”
Reviewed 17 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

This accommodation was the best we experienced in Sicily. The apartment could not be faulted, it had all that Holiday Lettings had promised which was a good deal better than other "... B&B" rentals. This was clean, well equipped kitchen, comfortable bed, decent bathroom good quality linen, Sat. TV. The apartment is well serviced being close to supermarket, butcher, general produce store, close to everything a visitor would want, tourist attractions etc. To be able to sit and watch the changing faces of Mt. Etna from the Terrace of the apartment was a joy. Although the apartment in situated in a busy part of the township. street noise is not intrusive. This apartment was the jewel in a very sad Sicilian crown. Mr Rando was a pleasure to deal with, he spoke v/good English, and was more than happy to make our stay enjoyable.
