Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Acireale - Villa dei Leoni

Apartment self-catering rental with swimming pool

Villa dei Leoni is a structure from 1800 that still illustrates the style and culture of the noble families of that period who spent their weekends and holidays on the Riviera dei Limoni. It has of course been restructured and the ground level, with an enormous terrace, now has an independent apartment while the owners occupy the first floor. Immersed in a vast garden full of Mediterranean vegetation and lemon trees, it is in the centre of this little fishing village called S.Tecla. The swimming pool and its surrounding terrace are completely hedged offering much privacy and is opened at the beginning of May. The apartment is simply and adequately furnished and the rooms sport the original high, vaulted ceilings. A short walk down the driveway to the Villa gates, one arrives into the village where there are bars, pizzerias and restaurants offering typically Sicilian, fish specialities. Within a further five minute walk is a rocky beach and the beautifully clean, clear Ionian sea.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome
  • pets considered
  • suitable for elderly or infirm
  • wheelchair inaccessible

Beautiful property on the seaside

  • 5 out of 5
Villa dei Leoni is a beautiful property in a sweet Italian seaside village. Apartments are comfortable, but hardly used as we spent most of our time on the terrace with a great view on the Etna who was very active. Or in the swimming pool with a great hot/cold shower that we used more than the shower in our apartment. Or in the sea jumping from rocks in clean water.
The owners are very nice, helpful and eager to make the most of your stay. Go for a morning swim in the sea, have your cappucino with brioche at the kiosque and rince off the salt at the pool. Then sip on your lemonade (fresh lemons from the garden). How much more do you need! There are plenty of restaurants to choose from, but you can also cook your own with fresh fish bought from local fishermen.
Thank you for a wonderful vacation.

Perfect place to stay

  • 5 out of 5
Villa Dei Leoni is a wonderful place to stay. It is a beautiful house, clean, with a great swimming pool and Francesca and her family are doing everything to make your stay perfect. And a lot of beautiful places like Taormina, Catania and the Etna are nearby. When we are going back to Sicily, we are sure we go to Villa Dei Leoni again.

An Italian Dream

  • 5 out of 5
Villa Dei Leoni is a family-owned sicilian Villa, build in the 19. Century with a large lemon-tree plantage. The owner-family always give the guests a very warm and hospitable feeling. The 3 apartments are tidy and sicilian-like furnished. From the partly 2,5m deep Pool you have an amazing view at the vulcano Etna. Leaving the location you find the cute italian living of the tiny fishing village Santa Tecla. Only a few KM there is the faszinating city Acireale, for us a mixture of Sorrento and Taormina. We have been to many different places in Italy, this is definitly one, we will visit again!

Beautiful!

  • 5 out of 5
We enjoyed the very special location in the middle of the nice little
town of S. Tecla.
The rooms, the garden and the pool are beautiful and made us feel very
comfortable. Francesca and her family were very kind and gave helpful
information about everything we needed and asked for.
The rooms offer a lot of space and the kitchen-part allows you to cook,
if you want to.
The garden is very beautiful, especially the old lemon-trees! The pool
is also very beautiful and big enough - so you can really swimm..
We also liked bathing in the sea, which is only five minutes away, and
the restaurant nearby.
All in all we loved the place an would like to come again!

A Sicilian jewel

  • 4 out of 5
Villa dei Leoni is a beautiful building in a typical Italian village. Although it is in the center of the village,, and a very short stroll from the village square and the sea it is set back from the road in the midst of fruit trees and other mature trees and plants and is very peaceful. Francesca and her family are welcoming and helpful and Francesca speaks good English which was a great help for us.
We did not hire a car but were able to visit all the places we were interested in using buses, trains and the occasional taxi, including Taormina and Randazza.
The sea is not brilliant for young children, although the adults in our party enjoyed the clear water and waves, but the wonderful swimming pool more than makes up for this!
We were a family party of three generations and we all had a really good holiday and would certainly recommend it to anyone looking for an Sicilian holiday with a wonderful Sicilian ambiance.

Very fine holidays in Villa Leoni (Ernst,4 people)

  • 4 out of 5
We found an atmospheric location with beautiful garden and refreshing great pool.
The only thing you should improve are the two bathrooms, because they are not
really good for 8 persons. Only one is equipped with shower.
Regardless of this, we recommend Villa Leoni everybody who likes sicilan atmosphere, the friendly care of Francesca and her father, the excellent fish-restaurant nearby, etc......
If possible, we would come again! Ernst
