“Great location”
Reviewed 4 January 2016 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed at Vico Zecca for a week last October and had a lovely week mooching round Taormina and the local area. Vico Zecca is in a great location, literally a 30 second walk to the main drag with lots of shops, bars, restraunts. Only 3/4 mins walk to a bus stop and just 10 mins from the main bus station, where we caught buses all over the local area.
The house is spread over 4 floors including the roof terrace and is immaculately clean and tidy. The kitchen is basic but sufficient - good fridge, nice table to eat at. Cooker is just hot plates, no oven or grill, but as long as you know that, you can work around it.
The area is pretty quiet to say it is so close to the centre, with patisserie for cornettos each morning a few minutes away. A good value budget accommodation for an affordable holiday in a fabulous region, but only suitable for those who can cope with a lot of stairs.
Carlos the owner and his family were fabulous hosts, they answered all our enquiries very quickly and were very easy to contact.

Reviewed 3 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The building and location were much more attractive than photos had shown. Couldn't have been better for walking out to eat . Cable car/ bus terminal really close by . Most impressed by ruins of thermal baths at back of property.
Carlo we didn't meet this time but, thank you ,and your lovely mother.

“Excellent location in the centre, nice apartment/views, quiet and peaceful”

Its location in a side passage off the main street, less than 10 minutes walk from the bus station, is ideal for enjoying Taormina and the places around it. In spite of being in the centre of town, the flat is quiet and with balconies with fantastic views. Comfortable and nicely decorated, very clean, with 3 levels plus top terrace. The cooker/sink unit is small but we got used to it soon. We had a very nice welcome. The owner was very helpful in sorting the wifi access. We have many nice memories of Taormina and to the apartment, including many meals we had in the balcony. Strongly recommended.

The apartment was in the best spot in Taormina! We were about 20mtrs from the Corso Umberto - the main street in Taormina - yet the small piazza where the apartment was, was really quiet and private. We spent many evenings on the rooftop terrace having a prosecco and looking at the fantastic view. The kitchen was small, but was ok for cooking pasta and other simple meals.
Giovanna who met us was lovely and was always available if we needed any help or advice.
The apartment was perfect for our family of two adults and two young children (aged 10 and 12). There are a lot of stairs as the apartment was on 4 levels (including the roof terrace) and we would have like to have wifi.
The price was very reasonable for such a good location and we would definitely go back again.

Three of us spent a week in this very nice house.We had unforgettable time in Taormina.
The house is big and there is a lovely view from the roof.It is in a quite area just round the corner form the High Street and very close to all attractions and historical places.It took us just a few minutes to walk to the cable car to get to Isola Bella beach.Carlo and his Mother were very nice to us.i would definitely recommend this property to my friends and would like to stay there again when next time come to Sicily.

The place is just brilliant. It looks much better in real than on photos. Four of us had amazing time not too mentioned the location of the flat and the views fro the roof.. It is clean, comfortable and it has all you need during holiday.
For us it was a shock when we saw the place. Owner was a very helpful and trustworthy.

“Excellent location and value for money.”
Reviewed 23 November 2013 for a stay in September 2013

This property is in the perfect location tucked just behind the Messina Gate in a quiet and pretty courtyard but very close to the bustling heart of the town. Convenient for public buses and a short bus ride from the railway station. Plenty to see in the town and close by so no need to go far if you don't want to. There are stunning views from the roof terrace. Kitchen facilities are very basic and though eating out is easy the property would benefit from a bigger hob, sink unit and micro wave/oven. The property was clean throughout but the two beds could do with new mattresses. As it says in the advert the property is over three floors so you need to be able to manage stairs safely so older people and young children need to be wary.
