Feedback from Guests
“Villa Scimone is a delight! Quiet, safe and full of character. We all loved the wealth of space and the busy, historic town is within easy walking distance. The villa provided a great retreat and h aving three distinct sleeping homes within the grounds of the villa meant that our party of 13 could have privacy when ever we needed it - Or we could join together for big meals or celebrations ( one birthday and one anniversary!) “

“Staying at Villa Scimone gives one a taste of the golden years of ‘dolce vita” Taormina. A charming and romantic setting furnished with thought and loads of personality creating a relaxing and unique vibe.”

"We could not have made a better choice if we had spent the rest of the year looking! Villa Scimone is beautiful, inside and out. The outside spaces are so many, we did not have time to spend in all of them! Because of the separate accommodations, the house never felt crowded with 11 of us, though we could come together to eat and enjoy each others' company in comfort. The house was equipped with everything you could possibly need, and more..."

"We had a party of 8 stay at Casa Scimone in July 2017. We were greeted by the owner and we all immediately bonded with her. She has a fantastic spirit and energy and we all loved her. She was able to highlight all the things we needed to accomplish in Taormina. Villa Scimone sits on the hill overlooking the downtown area—about a 10 minute walk. It is perfectly situated. We enjoyed cocktails every evening before dinner overlooking the ocean and the lights of Taormina. The owner also arranged for a chef to cook for us at Casa Scimone twice during our stay. Local produce, fish, meat and PASTA were featured and was fantastic. It was truly one of the most relaxing enjoyable vacations. She is a gracious, wonderful host!
We have travelled extensively throughout the world. Villa Scimone in Taormina is one of our favourite places. All the rooms and patios are professionally maintained and immaculate. Every detail is attended to, including a wonderful elevator.
All of this is enough to highly recommend Villa Scimone, but there is another feature that makes it stand alone: its owner who is welcoming, gracious, very helpful and professional.

Our feedback regarding our stay in Villa Scimone can only be super positive and 5 stars +
We were received graciously and warmly and throughout the stay the owner made us feel so welcome and she was amazing. Always accommodating our requests and made sure we got into the best places in the area. I will also recommend this property to other parties as well as your services which right from start was very professional and amazing for that I thank you.
On behalf of our entire group, I must say our experience staying at Vila Scimone was most memorable. In fact it will go down as a true lifetime highlight for my lovely bride and I. Everyone was amazed and mesmerised by the views the villa offered. Mt. Etna so close you could almost touch her. We couldn't take our eyes off her wondering what she might be up to next. And when we did, our gaze would shift to the 180 degree view of the sea below.
We are from Russia! Very big company, 11 persons. Everything was wonderful! Equipment perfect, an amazing garden, wonderful sleeping rooms! We hope you will never forget our soup (and vodka ;). We will recommend your villa to all our friends!!!
With Love from Russia
