As a family we had never been abroad and had got into the rut of feeling it wasn't possible. A family event forced our hand and it opened our eyes to how wonderful it could be. The Lemon Tree is ideal for families. You could not ask for a better location, such a relaxed place to be, gorgeous and spacious apartment, lovely courtyard area, almond/olive/citrus trees, pool, games, bbq and wonderful hosts - so helpful yet discrete, great local advice and they make simply the best olive oil I've ever tasted!! Do not hesitate.
“Nice holiday in Taormina”
We stayed at the Lemon tree for a week in October in 2013 with a young child. For us, it was ideal, since we were able to stay in and cook, and it was close (driving distance) to the beach and the city. Apartments were nice and well equipped. Hosts were very friendly and helpful (even lent us food so we could cook when we arrived). Area is beautiful and lots to do. We enjoyed our stay.
“Perfect place to stay.”
The hosts are very wonderful people who make your stay a very welcome one. The place in very tidy. The view is a breathtaking one.
“Personalized attention made The Lemon Tree an ideal venue for ou”
Our group of 17 longtime friends and colleagues had a week-long reunion in Sicily at the end of September, and we chose The Lemon Tree as our base for this fun and relaxing occasion. Sicily's location, people, attractions, and food were all guaranteed to combine for a perfect vacation, but the attentiveness and hospitality shown to us by Karen and Diego made this an unforgettably enjoyable experience. They were wonderfully accommodating, arranged (and joined us for) tours, meals, rides into town, and seemed very taken by our odd multinational group. The accommodations were very comfortable, modern and convenient, and located up in the hills above Giardini Naxos at a site that afforded panoramic views of everything from Etna to the Ionian Sea. Additionally, their knowledge of the local destinations, merchants and businesses gave us the opportunity to experience this corner of Sicily like locals (if not family), and their generosity with their time and flexibility in responding to our requests for guidance made us all feel like we had the benefit of personal vacation consultants. We are certain that, if Karen and Diego's delightful villa and the service they provide their guests are currently one of the best-kept secrets of this island, they are certain to soon become one of the most sought-after destinations of the region.
“Customized vacation with a personal touch”
Karen and Diego assisted our large group to experience Sicily from the inside out. The villa is lovely and quiet, set atop a hill with a wonderful view of Taormina, Castelmola, Mt Etna and the Mediterranean. Since the location is remote, the hosts provided transportation and tourist services to ensure that our vacation was fantastic, from traditional cafe and croissant start to the day, to accompanied tours to agrigento, Valley of the Temples, Mount Etna, etc. The highlights for me were the meal that Karen and Diego prepared, at our request, on our first night, and the cooking class with Rosaria, which allowed us to assist and learn the preparation of a typical Sicilian meal, which was fantastic! And the wine and olive oil made on premises by the owners! Thank you, Karen and Diego, for a memorable, relaxing, exciting vacation that sets a new standard for our group...of which you have both now become honorary members!
“Wonderful first Sicilian visit ,that makes you want to go back f”
Strongly recommended.Lovely hillside position,quiet within spectacular scenery.The surrounding landscape was of olive trees & grape vines. Our apartment had a wrap around balcony,with outstanding views. Accommodation was spacious & fully equipped & could not be faulted. Diego & Karen the owners,could not be more friendly, helpful & willing to enhance your stay,whatever your requirements may be. Car hire advised,although owners offer a taxi service.
“Relaxing after a long day out & about.”
Diego & Karen are wonderful hosts! From the time Diego met us at the train station (as promised) until the time we left. We stayed in The Limoncello, a lovely studio and a large sized balcony/patio with views of Taormina, Castelmola and the sea. The studio is spacious and was equipped with all that was needed for our stay. Situated high up a bit of a winding road, you would need a car to get around. Earlier on our travels, I unfortunately put out my back and had mentioned it to Karen who was able to obtain an appointment for me with a local Osteopath. Not only did she make an appointment for me, but insisted on showing us the way to get there as well. We would recommend The Lemon Tree to friends and family and if one day we travel back to Sicily we would definitely stay again! Note: They make their own red wine and olive oil, both of which are very good! Thank you Diego & Karen
“Wonderfully friendly and helpful owners”
My husband and I stayed with Karen and Diego in September 2013 for a week. We got lost but Diego came out and found us and led us up the (correct) mountain road - perhaps not for the faint hearted driver. Our apartment was good, very clean and comfortable. Wonderful views from the villa. Karen and Diego were so helpful with restaurant recommendations and sightseeing tips - not to mention helping out with a slightly re-arranged front of car! They also offer to cook if you don't want to go out every night. We would definitely recommend this villa and hope to return next year. We loved Taormina, which is about a 15/20 minute drive from The Lemon Tree. All in all a wonderful holiday.
“The Lemon Tree made you feel like family”
Karen & Diego are great hosts. They made us feel like we were family. They gave great suggesions of things to see and do. Make any arrangemnts you need and did not make you feel like you were a burden. It was a wonderful experience staying at The Lemon Tree!!
“A snapshot of Sicilian hospitality”
The Lemon Tree is in a unique position with fantastic views to the coast,sea and hills. The hosts, Karen and Diego, were incredibly hospitable and went out of their way to help, suggest and arrange transport, visits and meals. They made our week-long stay (as part of a group reunion) particularly special and one of the best reunions we have had. The apartments suited us very well giving us privacy but the large terrace provided a great place for socialising and reminiscing with a few bottles of wine.
