“A near perfect apartment”
Reviewed 7 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This is a lovely, well equipped apartment in a very beautiful traditional Italian building. The owner, Nino, is very friendly and helpful. We cannot recommend this apartment too highly and we will certainly book it again.

“Traditional Italy.”
Reviewed 6 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This is not just a flat - it's the top floor of a genuine Italian villa with all the style and history that you could hope for.
The positive comments made by many others are an accurate reflection of how Niño cares for his guests, for whom every request is positively met.
This gem was built in 1927, just outside the main town, and so is close enough to be part of Taormina whilst quiet enough to feel very exclusive.

“Hidden gem!”
Reviewed 27 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

I do not have enough words to describe our fantastic stay at Villa Aurora. From the moment we arrived Nino took care of us and made out trip extra special. So much that we enjoyed a drink with him almost every evening! Our fridge was stocked with a bottle of Sicilian wine, water, fruit and a few goodies for breakfast so we don't have to rush to a shop on our first morning there. What a lovely touch.
We enjoyed our large terrace for hours every day with unspoilt views of the ocean. We didn't want to leave! It was definitely a better choice over a hotel for what we wanted, as we love to escape the crowds of tourists every day and instead of spending it by a hotel pool, crowded beach or small balcony, we enjoyed the privacy of our own characteristic terrace, only 7 mins walk to the town centre. No cable car needed to get to and no massively steep hills either.
We are already planning our next visit there!

“Simply Brilliant”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I had the pleasure of staying at Apartment Aurora for 2 weeks whilst studying at Babilonia language school. The apartment is in fantastic location only a 7 minute walk to the Corso Umberto but a nice distance away from the noisy centre at night.
The terrace is nice and big and lovely to sit and read in the sun or for drinks in the evening. The apartment is newly renovated with big modern kitchen and fantastic antique furniture which makes it quite funky the combination of the two.
Nino (Francesca 's father lives downstairs) and is an exceptional host. He has an amazing garden and very kindly would give me fresh peaches and tomatoes from the garden. He is a wealth of knowledge with a background in the travel industry and has a great sense of humour.
He walked me into town the first morning and showed me around good local stores etc which was very helpful. Both Francesca and Nino really add that professional touch that coupled with the lovely apartment really gives it the edge over other apartments I viewed.
I definitely can not wait to return and have recommended this apartment to all my friends who are travelling to Sicily.
