This adorable little pied-à-terre is located in Sicily's most famous tourist resort. Taormina sits high on a hill, overlooking one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. Views are dramatic and spectacular. From the ancient Greek theatre, you can look across a breathtaking backdrop of blue sea and sandy coastline to magestic Mt. Etna, Europe's tallest active volcano. In town, picturesque alleys and half-flights of steps are lined with elegant boutiques and restaurants. With ancient monuments, flowered courtyards, tiny alleys, cafés, restaurants, shops, and tourists from all over the world, it's easy to see why Taormina is considered one of Sicily's most beautiful towns.
Just a few steps from the elegant Corso Umberto, the Duomo, and the Greek theatre, tucked just a bit out of the way in a narrow little street in the town center, Aphrodite offers the opportunity to be in the center of the action but in a location that is mostly residential and is private, peaceful and quiet. Once an ancient shop, the townhouse has been renovated to a high standard and is a charming and comfortable accommodation — small on space but large on style and comfort. Sicilian terracotta floors and lava stone stairs complement modern furnishings and local handicrafts chosen with special care by the owner.
On the ground floor is the daytime living area, with a fully outfitted kitchen corner (with dishwasher), a table and chairs, TV, single sofabed (a tight squeeze, but works for one child), and a bathroom with shower.
Upstairs is the bedroom, with a cute little balcony overlooking the village, and a colorful bathroom with claw-foot tub. A central stereo system allows you to enjoy music throughout the house and a well-organized guest book provides information for everything from emergency contacts to recommendations for dining and sightseeing.
What else do you need? Experience life in one of the world's most famous destinations. Venture into the countryside by day to explore Sicily, or relax in the sun at a sidewalk café and spend your afternoon sipping cappuccino and people-watching. Spend your evenings in Taormina; sample its many fine restaurants before you return to your cozy little house to relax and get ready for the next day's adventure.
