We stayed at Villa Carmelas with my boyfriend in September 2016 in an apartment downstairs by the railway. The passing trains didn't bother us at all, because inside there's really good sound-proof as long as you remember to shut the blinds aswell and the trains in Sicily are mostly short, passing the place within seconds. The apartment itself was clean,... More

Reason to take this apartment for me was that Isola Bella is in walking distance and parking for a big car in a very hard to park area. The walk to Isola Bella is 1000+ m / 15 minutes, mostly on road sidelines and is dangerous and not easy with kids. Parking in Villa Carmelas is easy, safe and free.... More

We had a very big apartment but we felt most of the features had very little added value. For all the space the bathrooms were actually quite small and could have used an update. You are close to the funiculare but the road is quite hazardous so you feel tempted to take the car anyway. There is a big terrace... More

To be honest, this place deserves rather 3,5 / 5 than the 3/5 I rated. It is simply a nice place, no more no less. It is centrally located between the old city of Taormina and the beach. It is a great location to explore the surroundings and beaches. We were looking for something private, rather than a hotel. This... More

Lovely apartment exactly as described online. It was clean, spacious & comfortable and had everything we needed for our holiday. It was just a few minutes walk from the funicular, mini-market, restaurants & beaches. There was also a bus-stop just a few yards away. The kitchen probably wouldn't have enough equipment for anyone who wanted to do a lot of... More

The apartments "Villa Carmellas" are great for staying with a family or with friends. Great location just 2 minutes from the seashore and about 5-7 minutes walk to the funicular to the center of Taormina. The apartments include all the utilities,with free wi-fi, air-conditioning, coffee-machine, hairdryer in the bathroom. The apartments are family-owned and adds friendly atmosphere to the stay....
