Location and distances


The property is located in the centre of Taormina, on the south-eastern coast of Sicily, 100 metres from Corso Umberto, the main street and vital centre of the city. Taormina is a meander of narrow streets and steps, being in the town centre, this house is also reached bye a series of steps. It is also possible to get to the sea in just a few minutes via the cable car that leads to the beaches. From Taormina it is also possible to visit Mount Etna (40 km) and Letojanni (10 km). Finally, we recommend you not to neglect one of the true heritages of the island, that is the food and wine excellences of both land and sea and the unsurpassed Sicilian cuisine, whether a delicious fish, a healthy but tasty vegetable or a delicious dessert based on ricotta, almonds or pistachios.

Lovely welcome although over reliance on mobile phone led to some confusion. We arrived on time as agreed in advance but the welcome host was expecting us to ring so we ended up waiting 45 minutes. Our host was very attentive and helpful during our stay, including recommending restaurants.
