This is one of the best places to stay in Taormina. The views are spectacular and you get the best of both worlds being halfway between the beach below and the town above. There are staircases to go up to town (about 300 steps + a walk up the road and and an option to go through Villa Comunale if you choose) and down to the beach so be aware of that, but stairs and walking pretty much comes with seeing Taormina thoroughly. The house was great for our family of four, and everything was very clean; AC worked very well too. Parking is also right in front of the house. Most importantly, Barbara, who lives an adjoining home, was such a warm, friendly, and helpful host. I would totally stay here again if I had the opportunity to come back.
