We stayed here for four nights. We had chosen the Lemon Tree because it was one of the more reasonably priced guest houses in the area around Taormina. We had originally selected a studio apartment as that was the only room available at the time we booked. It turned out that there was a recent cancellation so Karen upgraded us,... More

We loved our 3 night stay at The Lemon Tree and wish it could've been longer. We stayed in the downstairs two bed apartment which was perfect for our family of 4 (second bedroom has two single beds which is great for teenagers/kids who don't want to share a bed!) and my mum had a large sunny room on the...

Attended a wedding in Taormina last Tuesday so booked 3 units for 6 adults and 2 kids, best move I've ever made. The views are stunning, the rooms are tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean, a pool, table tennis table, pool table. 2 bbq's, ample outdoor seating, everything you need for a perfect holiday, and all set in an idyllic location....

A beautiful setting, a little way from Taormina which seems very close across the valley along with Castelmola. Both towns are lovely, lots to do and see (sadly we missed the amphitheatre in Taormina as it closes at sundown which that day was 6pm), lots of shops and restaurants. Karen recommended some places to eat and we stumbled across a... More

This is the best place to stay in Sicily! The surroundings are beautiful and the appartments clean, nicely furnished and comfortable (we were in three of them). The location itself is quiet, with a wondeful view on Taormina and the Ionic Sea. Karen and Diego are great hosts, which made our stay even better!

We had the most fabulous time here. The apartment was very clean and spacious with breathtaking views from the terrace. Karen and Diego are the perfect hosts- nothing was too much trouble- including going to get us fresh bread from the bakery ( quite a drive ). We loved the position of the apartment- away from the bustle but accessible... More

What a fantastic holiday in such a beautiful location! !

Stayed here with 2 children 10 and 16 and it was perfect. The kids loved the pool volleyball games, pool table, table tennis and freedom to roam safely.

What a perfect place. Beautiful view, nice apartment, big balcony. Although the owners were on a well deserved holiday their replacers mike and kate did just fine. The pick up point at the railway station is easy to find, and what a great service! We enjoyed the lemon tree and the privacy we had very much.
