We stayed in Casa Scimone with 11 men in June 2014. Once in every five year we go on holiday together since we met as students 25 years ago.
We had a wonderful time in Sicily and Taormina, but the best of this reunion was without any doubt our stay in this unique villa, or actually two villa’s.
The location is perfect, it is just above the main square of Taormina, so you can easily stroll into town to go out or pick up fresh bread in the morning.
The villas lay in the privacy of their own terraces against the hill overlooking the old center of Taormina, the bay of Giardini Naxos and the Etna. On these terraces there are beautiful romantic gardens with tables and chairs all giving this amazing view. The villas are beautiful as well and perfectly maintained.
The most unexpected surprise (which is not in the advertisement) was the owner. As Taormina gentry she knows everything about and everyone in this part of Sicily.
A guide and an introduction into the best restaurants, pizzerias, bars and sightseeing of the region, but most of all a great host. We had a perfect time and certainly will return. W. R.
