Our stay at Silvana apartment was a wonderful unforgettable experience. Upon arrival we were met by the owner's (Valeria) husband, Angelo, who kindly helped us up to the fourth floor apartment with our luggage, gave us maps and advice on nearby restaurants and attractions. As he is the owner of a local bar/ restaurant (Bar Licchio) up in the town of Taormina, he told us to stop by anytime with any questions or for suggestions or information (which we did quite often)-most helpful!
The apartment, itself, is a beautiful relaxing spot. It has a nice size living area complete with sofa, chairs, and Samsung Smart TV (all Italian channels). Also, in this room are the kitchen and dining room area. The kitchen is equipped with a stovetop, microwave, dishwasher, and refrigerator and dining area has a table with four chairs. The bedroom has a comfortable bed, armoire, and chest of drawers. A highlight of the apartment is that it has two terraces, both with beautiful views. The front terrace looks out over the main street of Taormina-Mazzaro (the beach part of town) and Mazzaro Bay. It has a small table with four chairs, a seating area and a swing. The back terrace overlooks Spisone Beach and contains a wonderful outdoor kitchen area with a washing machine and grill, which we put to good use after visiting the local market for fresh fish and produce. Also, on this terrace are two sunbed chairs and a beautiful large handmade table. The bathroom is nice and modern with a powerful shower (which can be hard to find when traveling). The apartment is within a short walking distance to the cable cars which take you up to the main town of Taormina (about a 5 minute ride). There are sixty stairs up to the apartment, so one needs to be in fairly good physical condition.
This wonderful apartment and its thoughtful owner and spouse (Valeria and Angelo) made our first trip to Taormina an outstanding experience. We hope to return to Taormina and this apartment in the very near future!
