APARTMENT WITHIN VILLA DEI LEONI

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

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

GREAT PLACE CLOSE TO ACIREALE

  • 4 out of 5
Great place close to Acireale, a small jewel. XIX century villa in large orange/lemon groove with it's own small pool. Great value for money, highly recommended.

SUPER !

  • 5 out of 5
Nous avons séjourné dans un des appartements de cette superbe villa et c'était vraiment très bien.Grande terrasse,joli jardin plein de citronniers et superbe piscine.
Très bon accueil et famille très sympathique.
La villa est bien placée pour visiter cette partie de la Sicile et comble de chance nous avons assisté à une eruption de l'Etna en direct depuis la terrasse de la villa !
Nous recommandons vraiment cette adresse.

REVIEW OF ANNICK ( AND HER FRIENDS)

  • 5 out of 5
We appreciated a lot our trip in Sicila, and particularly in Villa Leoni . This property is very good located for visiting the east of Sicilia ( Catania, syracusa, Etna ...).
It is convenient for a group ( we were a group of friends) ; and the swimming-pool is very clean and warm even in october !!
Every appartment is very charming and with an authentic style,
also the villa is a bit far from the center of the village, so it is very calm .
I recommend this rental property .

Behind the village rises the eastern side of Mount Etna, to the north is the town of Giarre and to the south the town of Acireale has thermal springs, 16th century churches and a magnificent Cathedral.
