“Convenient”
Reviewed 31 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Villa Centaurea is a fine residence in Taormina. Conveniently situated close to the city center. The host and his wife were very helpful and quick to meet our requirements. Unfortunately the weather was cold and rainy in March and we were not able to profit from the beautiful garden/terrasse. The heating system is not sufficient in cold weather. Would recommend the villa and the host any other time of the year.

“Convenient spot with parking, garden and easy access to town”
Reviewed 24 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Stayed for a week, great place with big sheltered garden ideal for family meals, on street parking and good sized rooms. 10 min walk into town and 15 mins back uphill. Only quibble was few items short in the kitchen but I'm sure Pancrazio will deal with them. Taormina would be crowded in August but was lovely in September.

“Spacious Apartment, easy walk to town”
Reviewed 25 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Four of us just returned from Sicily after spending a week at Villa Centaurea in Taormina. Pancrazio greeted us when we arrived late in the evening, showed us around the apartment and we never saw him again. We didn't need to as we had no pressing issues, except for the first morning we found there was no hot water for showers. I contacted Pancrazio's lovely wife, who, with Prancrazio live upstairs; the problem was fixed within a few minutes. Also internet connection was a big problem for my two adult sons, there is only one small corner in the apartment where the connection is strong, plus no air conditioning, but a few fans.

Apartment was spacious and beds were adequate. We enjoyed the lovely deck in the evenings over looking the street. We enjoyed lovely views of the sea and of Caselmola, a lovely town up in the hills. We watched from the deck everyday life happening in Taormina - in real time! Every hour bought something different, from fruit and vegetables vendors to friendly neighbors having a chat to the buses making the umpteenth trip up the hill to Castelmola. (which you can catch outside the apartment!). We loved the neighborhood feel and the bakery a few doors down was definitely part of our morning routine. Laundromat is a 5 minute walk down hill as are the two grocery stores.

Trek to the centre of town was enjoyable, we'd find a different route each time, and saw something new with each twist and turn. I have to admit, the trek back up hill with many stairs was a struggle at times especially after a big meal and a few drinks, but also a great way to keep in shape and maybe indulge in another cannoli!

We found there was quite a bit of noise during the day and evening hours, between the cars, scooters, buses and dogs barking it was a bit trying at times, but this is coming from someone who lives in a quiet New Hampshire town where all we hear at night are chirping crickets. I'm a bit spoiled and not used to city life. The noise did subsided as the night wore on.

Pancrazio was extremely accommodating. I had booked with Pancrazio a year in advance, so throughout the year I had emailed my fair share of questions, which he answered each time within a day. When I suddenly had to change the dates of my vacation, he was considerate and understanding and changed it without hesitation. We'd definitely visit Taormina again!

“Lovely location, spacious apartment with helpful owner :-)”
Reviewed 4 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We really liked this apartment. It was just right for our family of 5. Lots of cupboard and wardrobe space and the beds were comfortable. The rooms had lovely views over Taormina and sunlight filled the rooms in the morning. Although we didn't use the outside space that much (as we were visiting in late October), it would have been lovely in warmer weather. The apartment was clean and the kitchen was fairly well equipped. I think a vegetable peeler was the only thing we missed, and it's easy to use a knife instead. Only minor gripe was that the apartment was slightly chilly in the evenings (but again this was late October).

We really really liked the fact there was free parking, which is a bit special this close to the centre of Taormina. It was perfect to be able to go on day trips (Etna, Siracusa and the Aolian Islands are all recomended) & also to be able to walk into Taormina, which is a lovely town with lots to explore and do. There are local shops really close to the apartment (10m), then a little supermarket round the corner (maybe 60m), then a bigger supermarket down in the town, which is a slightly longer walk. The walk from town to the apartment is up hill & it's fine for anyone even slightly fit but my 75 year old parents would struggle. Having said that our 3 year old managed it!

Pancrazio was a friendly and obliging host with good tips and quick responses!

One thing to note is that there is no washing machine. It was not advertised as having one so I'm not complaining. I only mention it because I didn't notice and was slightly surprised. This would not normally be an issue for us but as we were going on to Rome, we needed to do some washing. Even so, Pancrazio directed us to a decent laundrette which was close by....... so no problem :-)

We would definitely definitely go back. Thank you Pancrazio :-)
