|"We stayed at Casa Scimone September 2016, and wish to recommend it to other travelers.
We have travelled extensively throughout the world.
Casa Scimone in Taormina, Sicily is one of our favorite places. It has a commanding view of the Mediterranean and Mt. Etna and is centrally located within easy walking distance of the picturesque town with its great shopping, historical sites and wonderful restaurants. Casa Scimone is on a quiet street easily accessible, with gated off-street parking. 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 Casa Scimone, but there is another feature that makes it stand alone: its owner who is welcoming, gracious, very helpful and professional. She gave us great recommendations on places to eat and visit, made reservations for us and joined us for a home-cooked dinner on the villa’s patio. The meal, by the way, was one of the best we had in Italy and is not to be missed.
When you stay at Casa Scimone, you will join the chorus of all who sign its praise."
|"For a group of 10 adults (friends and family) to find the perfect vacation, in the perfect location with the most knowledgeable, gracious, helpful, friendly, accommodating host -- well, this is impossible, yes? Actually, no -- not if you are lucky enough to experience Casa Scimone in Taormina with the owner !
The rooms are wonderful, the kitchens fully appointed with what's necessary for cooking full meals, or just the casual in-home diner. The meals prepared for us by Micaela and her staff were outstanding; and the recommendations for restaurants and Sicilian excursions were uniformly excellent. Seeing Etna, the Ionian Sea, and the boats and tour ships in and out of the area made for wonderful viewing.
The outdoor space is so amazing that you can miss some of the interesting and beautiful features inside the house, but stop to admire the artwork on the walls and the small details that make the house unique. Worth mentioning again, having two meals prepared at the Casa was a highlight of the stay. The food is amazing, typical for Sicily and some of it is grown in the Casa gardens.
The group is unanimous: these were the most comfortable and enjoyable accommodations we have ever experienced on holiday. Future vacations, no matter where in the world, will have difficulty matching this one."
|"We all had such an amazing time this week. We don't want to leave! Thanks for all the great help and recommendations.
The beaches, the boat, the cooking class…. so many great times! We'll be back!
Carmelina and Joe"
|"Thank you so much for allowing us to share your wonderful home for two weeks. We have all had a fabulous time and don’t want to leave!
We will miss the wonderful views and relaxing on the terraces.
Thanks so much too for al your great recommendations for restaurants and excursions. We loved spending time at Paradise Beach and the Acqua Park at Etna Land. Stunning views, gorgeous location, very comfortable accommodation and the lovely knowledgable of the owner all made for a wonderful holiday. As a party of ten we were able to spread out in comfort. So many lovely restaurants in Taormina but we loved our dinner at home in the pretty garden arranged by the owner. Our favourite evening was the one where you cooked a traditional Sicilian meal for us – all delicious!
We certainly will miss Casa Scimone. Would definitely return."
|"We have had a wonderful holiday at Casa Scimone in Taormina, Sicily. Before our stay Massimiliano from Ville in Italia was extremely helpful in booking transfers to from the airport for us and gave us lots of advice on excursions to do once we were there. Casa Scimone is situated at the top of Toarmina and the views are spectacular. We only hired a car for one day to go to the Waterpark as our hostess organised many trips for us and shops and restaurants were all within easy walking distance. Our hostess was very knowledgeable about the area and really made our stay enjoyable. One night we stayed in and had a traditional Sicilian meal cooked for us which was delicious! Casa Scimone is made up of two very comfortable properties, which worked well for us as we were an extended family of ten and so could spread ourselves out. Sicily is a wonderful place and we all hope to return one day.
Thank you again for all your assistance with our holiday. Sicily is truly an amazing place.
|"The villa was amazing! Taormina was absolutely beautiful! Such a fabulous trip it was hard to leave and we are sad it's over. The owner was wonderful!! Thank you for being so so helpful during all of the planning. Missing Taormina, Michele"
|"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 sat 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.
The property is stunning with breathtaking view and the area is second to none.
Over all everybody enjoyed their stay there and we will surely make sure to go back soon.
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.
|"Thanks for sharing your 6★’s Casa Scimone with all of us! Our stay here was a true celebration in life with our granddaughters’ graduation from high school and college Your furnishing plus attention to detail is much appreciated
Gratitude and love, M. & C."
We are still talking about our wonderful vacation in Taormina. I was a bit nervous booking a villa via your website because you never know what you will end up with. Our emails to you and the owner asking for information, booking transfers, etc put me at ease. When we arrived at Villa Scimone we were so excited. The villa is amazing and the owner was a wonderful hostess. Anytime we had a question or concern she was there for us. Our most memorable meal was when we went to the local butcher (recommended by the owner) and bought fresh meat to BBQ at the villa. We had a bottle (or two) of wine and dined outside on the large patio with our family.
I would love to rent this villa again and I would definitely book again via Ville In Italia.
Thank you for helping to make this one of our more memorable vacations!
|"5 star .......A beautiful villa-everything it is advertised to be-stunning views, close to town but far enough away-just perfect. Loved my week here-just a fantastic home! Our hostess was so very sweet-made us feel at home right away.
|"On behalf of our entire group, I must say our experience staying at Casa 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 literally mesmerized 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. The never ending activity of cruise ships and boats coming and going offered thoughtless, relaxing entertainment all day long.
We immediately fell in love and at home with the accommodations and layout of the villa. Every day started with breakfast as a group, then a splash in the pool before we took to the streets to tour. Afternoon siestas on the deck sunning and swimming rejuvenated our souls and helped us shake the tension from every day life back in the states. True decompression. And every evening our group concluded with cocktails on the deck or poolside. It was beyond comfortable. Likewise, the cleaning service did a great job making sure we didn't have to lift a finger.
I can not forget to mention how gracious and attentive to every detail the owner was. She took a person interest in everyone's best interest and literally became one of the gang. She really is a special person.
And if that wasn't enough, the location of the villa topped it all off. We were literally two minutes from main street which we frequented several times a day. We quickly became familiar with Taormina, her stores, restaurants, bars and stairs and fell in love.
We will hold our stay at Casa Scimone close to our hearts forever and will direct anyone and everyone your way.
Thank you for the beautiful memories. We hope to see you soon.

|"What a fantastic Villa we stayed here for my sons wedding in July 2015. The setting is ideal very close to all amenities with stunning views.
Villa Manager made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. A very understanding and personable host.
Considering we had my 91 year old mother with us the service was fantastic and she was very comfortable and had a brilliant holiday!
This villa is perfect for large groups and families we can't recommend it highly enough! We will be back!!!
We had the pleasure of staying at Casa Scimone in the beginning of July 2015 ,and this place is fabulous! It is made up of two private villas on one private property located one flight of steps up from the main pedestrian street and the heart of Taormina. We were a party of nine and had plenty of space and privacy. The villas are beautifully decorated, exceptionally clean, and well cared for. The décor is wonderfully eclectic and elegant, mixing modern art with traditional antiques yet so comfortable you can truly make yourself at home. The grounds are amazing with a stunning view of the sea and Mt. Etna. We spent many nights grilling out and dining al fresco (using herbs and lemons from the garden) and night swimming in the pristine pool. This place is truly a paradise, beautiful beyond words.
The caretaker (we love you .....) is a gem! We were there for our friends 50th Birthday and we hired the caretaker and her daughter to cook the Birthday dinner for us and it was the best meal of the entire trip! Prosecco and Italian sausage and cheese starter, pasta, eggplant, sardines, veal rolls meatballs steamed in lemon leaves, 5 bottles of wine, it was all so scrumptious. Do yourself a favor and order a meal from her. We all agree it was one of the highlights of our entire trip. She also went to the fish monger for us, and cleaned and prepared the fish for us to grill.
Tips: If you stay in the summer months opt for the air conditioning. Order the chef's dinner you won't be sorry. Check out Paradise Beach Club in Letojanni, they will send a shuttle to pick you up from the villa.

|"Thank you for the great time in your beautiful Taormina city. We throughly enjoyed the house, weather and the lively Italian people
We hope to see you in Miami or Barcellona some time ....
Love from the Miami group ......."
Our week in beautiful Taormina and the Casa Scimone villa were spectacular.
We loved every aspect and now have wonderful memories to take back home with us.
Maybe we’ll be lucky enough to visit again in the future!

|"Three couples had the opportunity to spend a week at Casa Scimone. What a wonderful experience. The was a ton of room and the home(s) (there are two separate quarters) were wonderfully appointed. It was obvious that you were staying in a home and not someone's rental. The kitchens, were both fully equipped and afforded us the great joy of preparing meals with ingredients fresh from the market. If you like to cook and have a group of people you'd tempted not to leave particularly if the weather permitted you to dine al fresco. The view from the expansive terrace was of the sea and Mt. Etna. It could not be more dramatic and beautiful. The gardens were filled with plants, fruit trees, and fresh herbs. We were there in late March so only the orange and lemon trees were in bloom but we have seen photos of the spring and summer months and it's spectacular. The Casa is within easy walking distance to the center of Taormina which is a great feature. Lastly we were able to pull two of our cars into the driveway. It's near impossible to park in Taormina as a visitor.
|"Beautiful villa, beautiful views,beautiful owner. Our daughter got married from this stunning casa. My husband and family stayed for the week and our daughter, the bride stayed the night before in the luxury master bedroom. Her twin sister and our other daughter, the bridesmaids laid the room with petals from the numerous plants on the balcony. Her wedding dress was hung in all it's splendour,a beautiful bespoke Suzanne Neville gown. The owner brought caterers for after wedding day party. Amazing food n brilliant serving staff. Words can't convey the fantastic time my family enjoyed at the villa.
|"Our family reunion in Taormina was elevated beyond our imagination due to the beauty and amenities of Casa Scimone. Its convenient situation with a private carpark, was a short walk to everything we wanted in town; but while within the unbelievably beautiful gardens, enjoying the privacy of the property was our favorite place to be. The facilities are modern and convenient in every way and yet hold the old charm of the village. The layout of the two houses and the lovely main patio were perfect for giving family members places to retreat and then gather in the outdoor living area. With the lemon trees and herbs in the gardens, we were never without homemade lemonade and fresh herbs for meals (and with the butcher down the street and the convenient grill near the patio, our favorite meals in Sicily were at home!). All of this was wonderful, but the attentiveness of the owner made us feel like family and friends rather than renters. The appointments within the houses and in the kitchens reminded us that we were in a loved home.
I can't imagine Sicily without Taormina and especially Casa Scimone.
|"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.
|"If it's any indication of my family's experience at Casa Scimone, we wholeheartedly agreed that it was the best vacation we've taken (and we fairly recently took a trip to the Amalfi Coast!). We visited Sicily in the last week of May, and we were absolutely blown away by the indescribable natural beauty surrounding the house as well as the spacious and homey interiors of the villas. There is an elevator that brings you from the garage to the top floor (!). The terrace provides you with unparalleled views of the Tyrrhenian Sea, mainland Italy, and Etna, and it is a perfect place to enjoy a morning coffee, late afternoon cocktail, or even gourmet dinner. And that brings me to the best part of Casa Scimone: the owner , who goes above and beyond the role of property manager by making herself available to guests every day of their trip. Her recommendations regarding Sicilian tours (the Etna wine region tour is a must, and she can set everything up!), the traditional Sicilian dinner she cooked for our family, her infectious personality and knowledge of the island, her Taormina restaurant recommendations, and above all, friendship, made us feel as though we were part of the family. When we arrived, we thought we had stumbled into paradise, with the owner as our guide. Sicily (and especially Taormina) now has the warmest of places in my heart because of our experience at Casa Scimone. I wish I could return every summer!
|"The Casa Scimone was everything and more than the photos reflected. The gardens were amazing! I also enjoyed the fresh herbs planted around the terraces and I did borrow some for cooking. We picked lemons and the owner came with some fruit which we don’t know the name of, but it was good.
The kitchen and dining areas were well equipped with every kind of cooking utensils, which we did use as we cooked most evenings after going to the market to buy the fresh produce that we wanted for the day.
We thoroughly enjoyed the villa and the many terraces with so many great places to relax with their magnificent views. There was plenty of space for the 5 couples that were staying there together.
The modern sound system throughout the villa was a pluss as was the heating as it turned cold during the week that we were there.
We have had a wonderful experience! We were most pleased with the villa, and truly enjoyed meeting the owner who was a wonderful host during our stay in Taormina as well as a wealth of information on everything we needed to know about in the area.
|"We had a great time at the Casa Scimone... and it was a delight to meet Villa Manager.
The villa is perfect for visiting the city and walking to shops and restaurants... yet not in the crowds.
The accommodations are fantastic and the two adjacent villas are like two perfect getaways with the main one is easy access to the smaller villa. so many great places to relax in the gardens and patios with drop dead gorgeous views of Mt Etna and the village. I loved the elevator up to the villa on the third floor. Parking was easy and safe behind the gate in the courtyard. The kitchen and dining areas were wonderfully equipped from the espresso maker to the the various knives, pots, pans. We cooked the feast of the seven fishes on Christmas eve at the villa.
Modern sound system throughout the villa was fantastic.
Negatives: I would like to stay longer.
Bedrooms and bathrooms were perfect and with wonderful views as well!
We would love to return.
|"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Scimone. A touch of class!
The owner was also a great help to us. She is a fascinating woman.
|"What a wonderful time we had! Loved the villa and the fabulous view. It was great to be able to walk to restaurants, shops, the Greek Theater, grocery store, etc. The eight of us had more than enough space -- we could have had a party! The tours that you pre-arranged for us were wonderful, as were the guides. That advanced planning saved us a lot of time. And we all loved the dinner that the chef prepared at the villa. Superb! Our best meal in Taormina. We should have planned that for earlier in the week, as we had so much food left over. You were so kind to give us all the information we needed to maximize our time there and we loved every day. A beautiful villa in a beautiful town on a beautiful island. Does it get any better that that?
Jan and Jerry"
|"I can’t say enough good about our trip. The villa, the location, the people throughout the town and of course the key-holder Micaela! Everything and everyone was perfect! We celebrated Mass daily with Father on Micaela’s side and had wonderful Sicilian wine and cheeses on our side. We toured the town and had the most amazing meals. Micaela was a wealth of knowledge and steered us in the right direct each time. We definitely plan on returning to the exact same spot soon. Thank you so much for all your help!
We look forward to working with you again!
