Christina S. - United States | September 2019

" Villa Parmina exceeded our expectations! The prosecco, fruit, cannolis and basketful of gourmet goodies, left for us, were much appreciated after our long journey to Sicily. The villa furnishings are exquisite and comfortable at the same time. Our family enjoyed relaxing in the pool & hot tub after our trips to Mt. Etna, Castelmola and Mazzaro Beach. The villa is perfectly situated and only a short 10 min. walk to Taormina Centre and all the restaurants, shops and culture it has to offer. Our cooking class with Chef Massimo was the highlight of our stay! I highly recommend Villa Parmina as THE place to stay in Taormina... it has everything to offer for making a special vacation to remember for the entire family!"

Mark L. - United States | August 2019

"We had a great stay. Property manager and housekeeper were very helpful and kind. Will recommend SOLOSICILY."

Nick I - United Kingdom | September 2018

"We had a fantastic holiday. There was nothing that wasn't perfect. The villa was great. Very comfortable but with an impressive look to it. Taormina was lovely. The theatre was my favourite place but the kids preferred the beach and the bars!"

Steve S. - United Kingdom | August 2018

"Thank you so much for our vacation. We felt so spoiled being at this villa. It was incredible! The old world style of the villa was impressive and we thought Taormina was beautiful. Lots of people, but lots of good places to eat and drink too. We went up Etna one day. We couldn't believe we were on top of an active volcano!"

Shaun D - United Kingdom | July 2018

"Taormina was better than we expected, although it was pretty busy! But we still loved it. Villa Parmina was all that we wanted and we would come back in a heartbeat. Having the pool was brilliant, and the traditional style was wonderful. Thank you so much for everything."

Clara W - United Kingdom | June 2018

"All in all we had a wonderful holiday. We have stayed in Taormina several time before so we know the place well, but Parmina was definitely the best place we have ever taken. We loved the views from the garden and having the pool was a definite bonus. We felt comfortable and at home, and left relaxed and carefree. Thank you!"

Christine Baylis - United Kingdom | October 2017

"Yes we had a wonderful holiday in Sicily , thank you. The website and customer service were very informative and attentive. Gabriele and staff at Parmina were very knowledgeable and helpful, not intrusive but very approachable and supportive when needed. Villa Parmina was stunning and very comfortable, with almost every amenity imagineable. The welcoming cannoli and prosecco set the tone for the rest of our stay. We had an amazing holiday, our trip to mount Etna was superb - the leaders coped with the mix in our group of pregnant lady, baby, young children and older lady (myself!) , very patiently. We are all looking forward to returning to Sicily."

Chiara Michilli - Italy | August 2017

"Our experience at Villa Parmina was beautiful. We fell in love with not only the villa but with Taormina. The culture and beauty is enchanting. I personally appreciate the history behind the villa and the beautiful art work and furnishings."

David Garvie - United Kingdom | July 2016

"We found the Villa Parmina absolutely excellent. We have stayed in a number of villas in Italy and this was definitely the best. It was well-equipped and in a perfect location. We were easily able to walk into Taormina or just use the little local shops to get bread, meat, etc. The pool was gorgeous and plenty of shade, especially with the natural shade from the palm tree. The villa was also very comfortable. Irena, who came into clean each day, was wonderful. She was very friendly and one day when she spotted we were off to the beach she immediately went to fetch a beach umbrella for us. Some of our party could speak some Italian and so really enjoyed chatting with her. It was a lovely thought to have the Sicilian pastries and Prosecco to welcome us on arrival (especially after our rather stressful journey – not at all down to Solo Sicily). Also, we really enjoyed discovering the welcome pack of goodies that was left in the kitchen for us and we had fun cooking with the various items. Daniel was very helpful when we first arrived and gave us a thorough tour of the villa so that we felt that we knew all about everything. He was also very responsive when we texted him about booking taxis, so we always felt well supported. (Also, we didn’t speak to the person who looked after the pool but it was kept in great condition and they were very unobtrusive, so we were able to use the pool whenever we wanted – sometimes in previous villas the times have been restricted for cleaning). It was really an amazing stay and a large part of this was down to Villa Parmina and the general welcome and support we received throughout our stay from all those people who work there. A huge thank you from us all. Best wishes"

Tony Tucker - United States | October 2015

"Yes back in the dark dreary and wet UK. With fond memories of Sicily, especially the weather, and food. Anyway on to the review. Solosicily and you were perfect, could not have asked for more. No hesitation in recommending your service. The villa was excellent in the sunshine, breakfast on the terrace was wonderful. We all enjoyed it immensely. A special mention for Irena the cleaner who was great. Thanks."

Mel Hirai - United Arab Emirates | September 2015

"The house was a real pleasure to stay in and we also loved the pool and having breakfast on our terrace overlooking the sea. The owners were lovely and friendly and helped us with everything we needed plus helped us plan our daily itineraries."

Gulya Garside - United Kingdom | August 2015

"I found your website quite easy to use. We found the villa to better than the pictures on your website. Irina, the cleaning lady is very hard working and thorough, it was really nice to return to a clean villa every day.  She was kind to our children and beared the teenagers’ rooms with grace!  We especiallly liked our morning hikes to Castelmola for a coffee and a view, and on one occasion to view the sun rise.  The cafe on the main square serves fantastic pizzas, much better than the ones you get in Taormina town centre.  We thought that the best beach was in Fiumefreddo and in Acecastello.  We would also recommend hiring a boat in Giardini to sail around the coast and swim off the boat."

Fran Russo - United Kingdom | August 2015

"Loved the position and the views."

Nova Robinson - United Kingdom | July 2015

"We had a really terrific time, thank you. When Gabriele asked how they could improve, the only thing I could think of was a couple of extra sun shades/umbrellas. It is a beautiful villa and exactly as it appears on the website. Many thanks for you help organising, the pizza lesson was terrific fun and I would highly recommend to any others. We went along to the teachers restaurant for a meal and received a terrific welcome."

Brad & Jan Simms - United States | June 2015

"We had a really lovely time in Sicily which was made even better by our stay at your amazing villa. The owners were very friendly and the soloSicily team very helpful. What a beautiful and unspoilt place. We hope to come back."

Darrel Cowen - United Kingdom | May 2015

"Thanks for a nice week in the Sicilian sun. We feel refreshed and content!"

Linda Seitz - Australia | September 2014

"Parmina was a wonderful location and the out door spaces were perfect for the late summer in Taormina."

Tony Owen - United Kingdom | August 2014

"We liked the villa very much and enjoyed our stay there."

David Heath - United Kingdom | August 2014

"We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Taormina, the villa was beautiful and the setting stunning."

Nicola Alessio - United States | July 2014

"I have no words to describe Taormina. It is perhaps one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. The location was really good, especially with three teenage girls who could get around on foot and use the cable car to get to the beach on their own. I would certainly recommend Parmina for families. THANKS solosicily for all your help with the bookings, car and directions."

Sara Turner - United Kingdom | June 2014

"Parmina was very beautiful and the location was exactly what we wanted. As we were a fairly large group being able to walk everywhere was ideal. Taormina is simply stunning and I never tire of walking through the town centre, eating gelato and watching the sunset from our terrace. Simply stunning. We were not ready to leave..."

Yuel Bach - France | April 2014

"We loved Parmina and Taormina. I think we have found our new favourite holiday destination!"
