“nice aparmtent with lovely views”
Reviewed October 6, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

The apartment is situated on a main road that is quite busy but once inside there is little traffice noise. Ideally situated as its only a short distance from beach and the cable car which takes you up to the main town of Taormina. It is not a luxury apartment and the kitchen is basic but as we did'nt intend on doing a lot of cooking it was prefectly adequate. The apartment has two bedrooms of a good size with views of the sea. The terrace is lovely with views over the beach and sea. There are lots of good restaurants within walking distance of the aprartment. We enjoyed our week here and the owner is very nice and helpful. Would stay again when visiting Taormina.

“Perfect location - great apartment with balcony”

Caso Faro is in a great location on the coastal road below Taormina. Within 100 metres of the front door are steps down to the beaches of Isola bella to the left and lido la pigna to the right. Both are pebbly though so bring beach shoes.
There is wireless internet with 1GB daily allowance and a tv in the sitting room with DVD player (although it didn't play UK region DVDs that we had for the kids). The kitchen is small but has everything you could possibly need and was great for us on a few evenings when the children were tired and we couldn't face eating out. The owner had left us a huge bowl of fruit, milk, croissants, coffee, yoghurts and enough of the essentials so that we could have breakfast on the first morning (and quite a few more) before finding a supermarket.
The bedrooms were plenty big enough and had air con in them.
We borrowed a cot for our youngest and it came with lots of lovely bed linen. There are plenty of towels and bed linen in the apartment for our stay. The apartment also has a washing machine which was fantastic, especially as everything we wore seemed to be covered in a fine dust by the end of the day.
The balcony has a covered area that was useful whilst eating and an uncovered area that you can sit in the sun; the views are beautiful.
A 5 minute slow wonder away is the cable car that takes you up to the town of Taormina, it was cheap enough that you could go up every day quite easily (6 Euros return).
We had a lovely meal in Ristorante Castelluccio, a few minutes walk down the road, simple Sicilian cuisine eaten in the garden. The service was friendly (something I find lacking in Italy) and they were welcoming of our young children.
The only fault I can find is that parking was hard to come by as being built into the hillside very few of the houses have their own parking and being a popular beach destination the street was full all hours of day and night. This sometimes meant a 10 minute walk up the hill with bags and children but is something that has to be accepted.
The owner was in contact with us well before arrival and contacted us throughout our stay and was able to direct us to a few places we needed. She is so friendly! She met us there on our arrival and before we left to hand over keys. She gave us simple instructions to find the apt too for our arrival.
The only other thing to mention is that there are a good 15 steps down from the front door into the apartment so best avoided if these would be a struggle.
Otherwise it is a quaint, small apartment with everything you could need for a holiday and we had a fantastic time whilst there.

“Perfect location, comfortable apartment”
Reviewed September 23, 2011 for a stay in September 2011

We loved Casa Faro. And its owner. We chose this rental because it's close to the beach but still easily accessible to town. The apartment is right on the main beach road, so it is only a few steps in either direction for the beautiful Mazzaro and Isola Bella beaches. A few steps more brings you to the funivia to Taormina. The location is also very convenient to the autostrada and to the restaurants, bars, and small shops lining the main road. Despite being on the road, the apartment is very quiet, with no traffic noise, as the living area is to the back of the building, with a gorgeous view of the sea (you can, however, hear live music from a nearby hotel when the windows are open). The apartment is spacious, clean, and well equipped, including with such incidentals as paper towels and plastic wrap. Not fancy but certainly comfortable, pleasant, and homey. We ate breakfast daily on the terrace, where there's a table, loungers, and a large umbrella, as well as a clothesline. The owner is as lovely as the apartment: efficient, charming, warm, and very helpful. She was waiting for us upon arrival, with a bowl of fresh fruit, and showed up right on time upon our departure to collect the key. When we forgot something after checkout, she went out of her way to meet us, despite her busy schedule that day, so we could pick up our belongings. Parking is along the road, which can be difficult at times, or in a paid lot nearby. Should we ever be so fortunate to return to Taormina, this is the only place we would want to stay.
