The house extends on 4 floors and provides a small roof terrace with spectacular views towards the picturesque city of Taormina , the Greek Theatre and Mount Etna.

Each room has been decorated with lots of care and love for details. The furnishing is complete and of high standard.

Spending time in the living on the 4 th floor or on the small roof terrace is special experience. From here you will enjoy fantastic views over the roofs and the small streets of Taormina. The sunset above the vulcano Etna is an unforgettable experience.

The equipment and furnishing come up to high expectations on quality and taste. The equipment is a mix of modern Italian design and antique French and Sicilian furniture. The tasteful room design is underlined by a special selection of art pictures and lamps made of real Murano glass.

All the rooms are equipped with an efficient air condition system offering pleasant cool temperature in the summer and cosy warmth in winter time.

The privileged situation and the special equipment of this accommodation invites you to experience and enjoy Taormina in a unique way.

The area of the town house is located in the most antique area of Taormina which is the very best housing area of Taormina historic city center. The houses of the neighborhood, the small shops and various studios of local artists cause a very special spirit.

The famos park area of Taormina "Giardini Pubblici " also called "Villa Comunale" is just around the corner and invites to relax within a very particular "green mediterranean park" with stunning views on Mount Etna and the Bay of Giardini Naxos.

During summer time various classical music concerts and jazz sessions are being held in this park and are a great enrichment for ones holidays.

In this neighborhood one doesn't feel like a tourist but as native Sicilian.

Très belle maison. Très bien située, à cinq minutes de laction de la rue principale de Taormina. À deux pas du théâtre grec. Maison confortable et bien décorée. Rene (Canada)

Awesome place in the middle of the beautiful Taormina. The layout of the apartment is unique and we loved hanging out in the living room with a beautiful view. Lenita December 2013

Very beautiful accommodation, exactly as shown on the pictures. Location is perfect to explore Taormina, next to main street but still quiet. Especially the living room is fabulous to relax! Moreover Mike was very helpful already before the trip and gave us tips and additional Information. Sonja X-Mas 2013

Great Apartment in an even better location in the heart of Taormina. Mike and Violetta were very easy to communicate with and the apartment was just perfect for us. Would definitely recommend! Frank & Soledad April 2014

The Taormina house is indeed luxurious! A narrow staircase takes you to four charming floors, clean and beautifully decorated. The bathrooms provide ample space (unlike many European baths) and the view is indeed excellent. It couldnt have been more centrally located and even so it was relatively quiet. I highly recommend the accommodation - it was delightful. Susan April 2014

This home was absolutely amazing to stay in! We were in Taormina for a wedding and found this home to be perfect for our trip. The home is centrally located in Taormina and is surrounded by great restaurants and patisseries while being only a short walk to all the attractions. The roof deck boasts some amazing views of the town and Mount Etna while the top floor (picture with the couches) is great for enjoying time with friends and family. Overall, this home delivered on all expectations and we could not picture a better place to stay! Brian (Canada) May 2014

A fantastic place to stay in Taormina. Very central. Great host and, despite the many stairs, the house was amazing. Thank you. Albert 2014

The apartment was in a fantastic location, and was tastefully decorated. The 5 floors provided privacy for the 5 adults in our party. Thankyou to the housekeeper who accommodated our changing needs and greeted and farewelled us when required. All in all we enjoyed our stay. Regards Mary September 2014

We enjoyed our stay at this lovely townhouse. It accommodated our family of 5 and is in a perfect location close to restaurants, local bars and the main street of Taormina. We were greated to our accommodation late at night which made this an easy experience for us. Mike the host was easy to contact via email as too Violetta and very accommodating to our requests. We would recommend to family and friends. Thankyou once again. Nadia and Family July 2014

Great apartment on multiple levels. Excellent position in the city center of Taormina - close to nice restaurants, bars and Porta Messina, where it is possible to get the Funicolare to Isola Bella. Awesome roof-top terrace where it is possible to see the Etna. I believe the apartment delivered under all the aspects. Alberto, August 2014
