- About The Experience
Travelers seeking to experience Sicily will find truly stunning coastal scenery at this modern three-bedroom apartment very close to Taormina. Situated near the meeting point of the hills and the seashore, the apartment complex overlooks the craggy isle of Isola Bella and offers lovely shared grounds with a swimming pool.
- Location Description
The apartment complex is located close to Taormina, a hillside town about 200 meters above sea level, in the northeastern part of Sicily. The property offers stunning views of the Mediterranean and overlooks Isola Bella, a rocky island that is abundant with vegetation. The town center of Taormina is approximately 2 kilometers away—because the road to Taormina is uphill and shared with traffic, the town is best reached by car. Taormina features many shops that sell local Sicilian wares, including jewelry, crafts, clothes and other souvenirs, and the town has plenty of markets and restaurants. The main attractions include the Greek Theater and the Medieval Quarter. Every summer, from June to August, the Greek Theater hosts the Taormina Arte Festival, which offers plays, concerts and film screenings. The sought-after beaches of Mazzarò and Capo Sant'Andrea are within easy reach via cable car in the town center (Strada Statale). For scenic day trips, visit the Alcantara canyons, majestic Mount Etna, the Cyclops Riviera, Catania and Syracuse. A car is necessary.

Peace and Quiet
We all loved the home, especially my granddaughter, who loved her room. It was outside the main center of town but accessible by walking, car and bus shuttle. The home provided an excellent place for reuniting my European-based family.
Open feeling, large deck overlooking the ocean with amazing view.
Pool water was too cold. The gate code and entry was a little difficult just off a very busy street with little area to park off street while trying to open the gate. Front door lock key was difficult to operate.
Hills and views.
Nearby Events or Locales:
We had a wonderful and relaxing stay.
The apartment is beautiful and has all the modern conveniences that American customers would want, such as good air conditioning and very comfortable beds. It is located on a large property shared by a small hotel/restaurant called Tout Va. The property is spacious and has fantastic views.
Great parking, beautiful swimming pools, and an excellent restaurant next door.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Taormina is just up the hill. A car is recommended because the street does not have a sidewalk and it is rather steep.
Tips or Restaurants:
There are lots of good restaurants in Taormina. The staff at the Tout Va restaurant and hotel next door were wonderful and very helpful. We had breakfast there almost every day.
We always use GPS and the apartment is not difficult to locate. It is a main road up to Taormina.

Very helpful property manager who is available via text and phone.
