About the property

Villa, 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, private Pool, Sea View, Etna, Garden, WiFi

Villa Due Leoni is a charming villa on two floors with private pool and garden situated on a lemon estate halfway Catania and Taormina and at only one km from the sea and the village of Riposto where you can find fresh fish every day.

The garden has been transformed in a real paradise with palm trees, perfect lawns and an orchard with all kind of fruit trees. From the terrace and the pool (10 x 10 meters, deep 140 cm) you have a stunning view on the coast and on Mount Etna, often puffing. The pool is open all year round.

"[T]his villa is truly on top of what we have experienced so far. Idyllically located in lemon plantation, Mt. Etna towering to the west and the Mediterranean sea to the east. The unspoilt village Riposto within easy reach by foot with several restaurants and local shops. Within short driving distances you even reach some of the most "necessary" attractions”. HH, Norway, October 2016

All in all, Villa due Leoni is a peaceful and authentic Sicilian villa ideal for friends and family who wish to explore the Eastern side of Sicily.

peaceful retreat and well equipped house

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of nine staying at Villa Due Leoni - with an age range from 15 through to 72 - the house is a little set back from the town, so a walk into town is required - however this also means the house is very peaceful, surrounded by lemon trees and with spectacular views of every changing Etna from the pool. We were well looked after by our hosts and really enjoyed our stay.

Superb property

  • 5 of 5

We spent a great week in September in this house. Located near Giarre the house is in fact a large property, almost a compound, with a big yard, terraces, pool, and all the amenities.

Built on a refurbished old winery, the house is large, tastefully decorated, relaxed, well equipped and secured. Although we were 6 adults in our group, there was plenty of room for all of us without intruding in each other’s privacy. Bedrooms are large and comfortable with thoroughly clean bathrooms, properly stocked with all necessities. The whole house was nicely furnished, well stocked, attractive, at ease, and fun.

The property is conducive to self-catering as it provides several well-equipped kitchens, barbecue grill, and outside and inside dining tables. It was quite fun to cook in the evenings and spend time with our friends in this relaxed and pleasant environment.

The property is in fact a functioning large family vacation home which is sometimes rented out. The owners are a really nice retired couple who do not live on the premises. They greeted us upon our arrivals and met them several times during our stay. It was a pleasure to chat with them and listen to the history of this amazing place. They were always hospitable, warm, well informed and helpful. Sometimes in the morning we would even find, on a table outside, a nice bottle of their house wine waiting for us as a present.

The exterior of the house is at least as pleasurable as the interior. Well stocked with long chairs around the refreshing pool, tables everywhere, chairs in the garden. All around there are pieces of art made in-situ by a local artist. There is also a charming lemon garden where one can lay on a long chair for a reading or a chat.

The whole property is well secured electronically and therefore safe. There is also ample parking space for several cars.

An exceptional property, large, comfortable, and welcoming, well suited mostly for groups. We had a great time there and we recommend it highly.

Lovely vacation in Due Leoni

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Due Leoni for two weeks in October 2017. The villa and the surrounding lemon farm was just gorgeus. There was a big terrace and a fenced pool, which was important to us travelling with small children. Everything was very clean and well-maintained.

The hosts were very friendly and helpful. They stopped by several times during our stay, taking care of the pool and making sure we have everything we need.

The surrounding of the villa was very nice and quiet, only interrupted by passing trains and farm roosters every now and then. The views from the terrace to Etna mountain and the mediterranean sea were just beautiful!

There were a few smaller grocery stores quite close by, and also a bigger supermarket Conforama at about 15-20 minutes drive away from the villa. A car was definitely needed.

We would be glad to go back some day and would warmly recommend this villa for a vacation in Sicily!

Hidden oasis!

  • 4 of 5

A lovely, large property with great pool and views set in the most wonderful (and extensive) Lemon Grove which completely surrounds the villa. Our host Mr Foti visited most days and was very approachable and friendly. The villa is set just outside Riposto down a rather unprepossessing lane, but once within the villa you feel in the countryside, miles away! Easy distance to Taormina and Etna. Recommended.

Wonderful garden, pool and outside terrace

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 (3 teenage children and parents) thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. The owners were very thoughtful and helpful; the outside space and views of Etna on one side and the sea on the other were wonderful. We hardly used the large reception room or downstairs kitchen because the weather was so warm and we spent a lot of time at the sea. The bedrooms were comfortable and we were glad of the air conditioning. Thank you for a lovely week.

Lovely, beautiful, comfortable and just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there for 2 weeks, and we would love to stay much longer! The house is very comfortable, the garden and the terrace is beautiful and the kids loved especially the pool! The owners are very lovely and caring. The views are astonishing, from one side the lemon orchard and from the other side Etna. The sea is very close and very nice, the restaurants are in walking distance. We enjoyed it very much!!

Riposto is an excellent base from which to explore eastern Sicily. The village lies halfway between Catania and Taormina and just 10 kilometres from Acireale, a pretty little city, built on a plateau of lava, that is known for its Baroque churches. The beach of Sant'Anna distances less then 3 km. Gardini Naxos, a seaside resort with a sandy beach, just 20 km further on the coast. Next to Giardini Naxos we find Taormina 'the pearl of the Mediterranean' and the most exclusive seaside resort in Sicily. Its ancient Greek theatre is world famous for its extraordinary panoramic views. Pozzillo, Santa Maria la Scala, Torre Archirafi and Aci Trezza are cute seaside villages near Riposto. Travelling south, one hour’s drive away lies Syracuse.

Riposto is also an excellent base from which to explore Mount Etna and its surroundings. The villages of Etna, such as Trecastagni, Zafferana Etnea and Randazzo, are famous for their ancient lava flows, the architecture of their seventeenth century churches, their delicious local produce and the hospitality of the villagers. Situated about 600 metres above sea level, they are a favourite retreat of the city dwellers who, in summer are in search of cool, fresh air, while in winter are in search of snow for skiing. Few people are aware that Etna is a popular location for skiers in winter. On some glorious days in winter, it’s even possible to ski the frozen slopes in the morning enjoying a wonderful panoramic view of the Mediterranean, and then, the same afternoon, go and sunbathe on the beaches below!
