“Comfortable and beautiful apartment near the center”

We stayed here for 4 nights and absolutely loved it!
There were no surprises, the apartment is as the pictures shown.
Giovanni and son were flexible and uncomplicated with regards to arrival and departure times. They arranged for a parking slot for us and also gave us some tips for our stay.
Taormina itself is beautiful, entertaining and near some fantastic beaches. The apartment is 5 mins walk from the main street and yet very quiet.
The only minor minus: no shower courtain :-(
Overall, this is totally recommended

“A great stay in an apartment with a view in a lovely town”

I'd recommend La Guardiola to anyone looking for a well-maintained apartment close (10 minutes walk) to the centre of Taormina. Our host Giovanni and his son met us at the exit from the autostrada and led us up into Taormina. He helped us with our bags, showed us where to park for free all week (very useful in a town where parking is difficult or expensive), and the best place to shop.

Taormina is a great town, with a great main street, with lots of places to eat and shop. The ampthitheatre is a must to see and nearby is the Bam Bar (bad name, but otherwise wonderful, serving divine granitas of many flavours. My son and I dropped in for a granita each most nights. The cable to the beach is between the apartment and the town centre and trips to Etna, the Alcantara gorge and Syracuse were all well worth it.

“Excellent for longer stays”
Reviewed 12 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We recently stayed at La Guardiola for 2 weeks and found it an excellent base to explore Taormina and the east side of Sicily. We enjoyed the excellent cooking facilities after Giovanni kindly pointed out the local produce market and mini-market, allowing us to feel almost like locals, which is what we wanted. The shops and bus station are very handy and altogether, a fabulous location for a wonderful holiday.

“Beautiful apartment in great location”

We stayed at the La Guardiola apartment for three nights, but would have liked to stay for a longer time, both for the beautiful town of Taormina and for the very nice apartment. Giovanni was a great host who gave us lots of good tips on our arrival.
The apartment was just perfect for the family of four, it had everything we needed and even more. I would say that the living-room and the main bathroom are more luxurious than it looks like on the photos. The balcony is absolutely great - lots of space but still cosy, and with nice views.
The location of the apartment is perfect, not far from the very centre but still in a quiet place. Also, it's very near to the cable car station, so it is easy to go down to the beach.
