Great place to stay in Taormina although the road is very narrow and not in good condition. You can reach the nearby beach via stairs which lead directly to the sea. The view from the rooftop is priceless!! There is also a tiny island which is also a natural resorts!

Couldn't recommend more for people trying to get away from the city. Lovely place. Close to the coast, walking distance to town. Very hospitable staff. Taormina is a gem of a town. Thanks Terra Rossa.

Villa Terra Rossa really was a good find. We booked through Air B&B for February and it was firstly VERY cheap, and secondly wonderful - as although "low season" we prefer it that way!! Enough is open, but you have the beach and town to share only with the locals - fabulous. The location is perfect - super close to... More

This is a great place when you go to the eastern part of Sicily A lot of fine appartments, all with enough space to enjoy your stay. There is no television, and only wifi at the reception but we never missed it. The rooms are a bit outdated, but then, the views are great, especially from the breakfastroom and the... More

Terra Rossa is perfectly situated between the centre of Taormina and the sea. The highlight of this place is the view. Looking out from any window pretty much gives you a view of the hills, beach and sea. The apartments and the hotel are pretty rustic with unique bits of furniture used to decorate the place. This gives it a... More

As many other reviews, I can't but agree about the beutiful view and garden. After a week at Terra Rossa we were in better shape than when we came with the 350 steps down to the beach as to the citycentre. Yet the hotel has a lot more potential! Here are my suggestions for improvement. Aircondition - During spring and... More

Terra Rossa is a perfect little apart-hotel... It's a brief walk away from the center of Taormina or the beaches down below. Not only do the apartments have small kitchens, for those who would like to cook some nights and avoid always dining at restaurants, but there is also a swimming pool - which is fantastic if you're too tired...

In Taormina for a week in August. The accommodation was one of the best I've been to. Everything seemed to be kept clean and tidy, but had some plants overgrowing which kept in with the Italian style. We had an apartment with a balcony and a patio which both overlooked the hills and the sea. There were great views at... More

Great staff, great location and great apartments. The gardens are lush and a cool retreat in the heat of the day. The swimming pool is lovely and overlooks the bay below Taormina towards Isola Bella. Went beginning of June when the flowers were in full bloom and they were stunning. The restaurants up the hill (steep set of steps) are... More

This is a very nice place to stay if you plan a visit to Taormina. The view is magnificent with Isola bella in the front and the medeterrenian beyond. The garden is also fantastic. Be aware that there are many steps to the beach (app 350 steps) and also a pretty hard walk to get into the towncentre - expect... More
