We had a warm welcome from the owner, Edoardo, who showed us around the apartment and made sure we knew how to get around the area. The apartment is very convenient for travel around the area with the railway station within walking distance (10mins) and buses running hourly up to Taormina. We were early in the season so the swimming pool was not yet open and the furniture on the terrace was also unavailable but the garden in front of the ground floor apartment had a table & chairs for our use. It was very enjoyable sitting out in the evening sunshine with our sparkling wine which Edoardo had kindly provided for us. The apartment was modern with a very well equipped kitchen. The one down side was the very small second bedroom. Edoardo rang us on our second day to make sure we had everything we needed and also rang again the night before we left to make sure we had enjoyed our stay. If you need somewhere to stay with private parking ( a nightmare in Taormina) and private access to a beach, this would be a good choice.
Edoardo, the manager, was very helpful, including picking us up at the bus station when we arrived. The bottom-floor apartment was very clean and well-appointed, with new furniture and appliances. It is centrally located, although not quite in a town. It is an easy walk to the train/bus station (0.8 km) and town (1 km). When we visited in early April, it was cold, and there was no central heat, but a space heater kept us reasonably warm. We didn't have a car, but were able to get everywhere we wanted either by walking, bus or train. Giardini Naxos (the closest town) is very walkable, with many fine restaurants. The views from GN and the surrounding towns are great. We enjoyed two weeks of local travel during our stay.
The apartment is totally new and modern and has all amenities you may need, even a dishwasher and washing machine. The TV had a USB slot so we could watch films on it!
Everywhere was spotlessly clean and the owner gave us a bottle of champagne on arrival, which was so nice!
The apartment is a good size and looks into the garden which is full of greenery and birds singing.
The trainline runs very close but you get used to the noise so its OK.
There is free private parking also!
Just returned from Sicily!
I have no words to describe it!... Can only say it's unforgettable. Still did not recovered from all that excitement that i've seen!
Sicily is a true paradise on earth, I spent a couple of days, and received emotions like for one month!
Edo is a real magician and made my stay in Sicily in a real fairy tale!
In fact, he's a truly sincere and wholeheartedly person, who wants to show only the places which are hardly believable to see! I stayed in Taormina. When i came in his appartment, in the beginning I did not want to leave it. Quiet , hidden somewhere in the middle the mountain place with a blossoming garden, sweet Italian little tables where you can only dream to have a breakfast! Then you climb a little higher, and the breath is taken captured from what you're see! Incredible pool with view between the mountain and sea, and of course flowers, juicy colors and sun is everywhere. I'm just in awe. Getting finally to Taormina i start to amaze even more! Ancient sunny town rose right over a cliff, and below only the endless sea and a lot of boats and yachts. Somewhere around cheerful Sicilians celebrating a wedding and yuo cannot get rid of the desire to lost somewhere in the city forever. And of course the food, mamma mia! Arancini and cannoli are now my drugs! I also visited Catania, Syracusa and some other cities, but I think Catania and Taormina impressed me the most!
Best vacation you can only imagine! I am very grateful for this chance to Edo and I think I'm going to come once more again! If anyone has a questions, I will gladly answer on it!
