We had a brilliant week in Francesca’s Apartment. Her father Nino guided us through the narrow streets of Taormina and proved to be an excellent host. He has fluent English, was attentive and helpful without being intrusive (he lives next door) and invited us round for a glass (or two) of Prosecco and delicious bruschetta on his lovely terrace. Our own terrace was also a delight – just as shown on the website, with olive trees for shade and bougainvillea and lemon bushes for colour. The interior of the apartment is cool (which is a good thing) and furniture, appliances and equipment are all to a high standard. It takes just ten minutes to stroll into the town centre and there are good restaurants and small supermarkets even closer than that. Our thanks to Nino for his willing help, guidance and friendship. Overall, we had a great experience and would recommend Francesca’s Apartment without hesitation.

Wonderful place to relax and take in the Sicilian atmosphere. Short walk to cafes, bars, shops, taxis and buses, also cable car down to a beautiful cove. The owner's father, Nino, is a delight, really helpful and friendly. Loved the whole experience.
We spent 6 nights in Taormina in this apartment with its lovely views.
The apartment is very spacious and well equipped the terrace has ample space to sit and admire the views.
Taormina centre is beautiful and about a 15 min walk away (it is hilly).
Nino was very helpful and a good source of information.
Booking was easy and the private car pick up very good.
We would recommend this apartment to friends and would stay there again.
Can I also say thank you for the information on the cooker lessons we had a great time.
The holiday was very relaxing just what we needed.
Excellent location. Pleasant stroll into Main Street. We got lost in Taormina on arrival- Nino met us on his scooter and led the way. Thank you Nino. Welcome pack of eggs butter wine water - again, thank you Lovely spacious apartment. Well equipped, well furnished. Enjoyed our trip.
A very spacious apartment in a quiet part of town yet just a stroll to the shopping centre and restaurants. Fabulous view from the terrace. Really splendid location and very comfortable bed.
What a surprise! We arrived tired at 2am to the lovely Nino who stayed up to welcome us, then to wake up to the olive tree on the sunny terrace was a delight. Nino was a wealth of amusing and informative tourist information and a pleasure to spend time with. Beautiful location just on edge of Taormina with views across the sea and town. The apartment had everything we needed, very comfortable and very clean. Just wish we could have stayed longer we were so busy exploring we forgot to relax!!!
We stayed in Francesca's Apartment for a week in July 2015. It was exactly as described and certainly lived up to the photographs posted by the owner. We can only reiterate what other reviewers have said. It is spacious and beautifully furnished, really well equipped with basic provisions supplied. For us, the wonderful outdoor terrace was the real attraction. Normally, we travel out a lot when we visit an area but here we enjoyed a relaxed Sicilian holiday, with breakfasts and lazy lunches in the shade of the cypress tree, taking in the lovely views. Staying in an apartment like this, visiting the local market and restaurants, far surpasses any hotel, no matter how many stars it might have!
We received a warm welcome from Luisa, Francesca's sister and Nino, her father and, while we were quite independent while there, it was reassuring to know that help was nearby if needed.
Taormina and the immediate locality are very accessible and offer lots to see and do.
We will definitely return, perhaps when the weather is a little cooler!
