About the property

4 sleeps, big terrace, excellent location, air-condition, Wifi

Casa Lionessa has all you may desire from a holiday home.

Located on the third floor of a 20th century building (no lift), this penthouse has a truly bright living room thanks to its large windows overlooking the enormous terrace. From here guests can enjoy a view that resemble the postcards of the Greek Theatre in Taormina: the Gulf of Naxos & Mount Etna. But that's not all.

Right in front Casa Lionessa is the park of the Villa Comunale and tennis courts. Moreover, the Greek Theatre and the Corso, the main street of Taormina, are at only 3 minutes walk.

The house consists of a bedroom, a separate kitchen, and a living room with sofa bed and dining table. The terrace is equipped with two lounge chairs, a dining table with an umbrella.

About Giulia Lattanzio / Lenneke Burghouts

We have been with Homeaway since 2006, proposing houses that are able to unfold Sicily's colours and charm at best.

Houses with quality furnishing in unique locations, with incredible views or with a pool, always accurately selected in order to satisfy our main wish: to see you falling in love with Sicily just like we did.

We provide you with transparent information and true pictures. What you see is exactly what you get. We will advise you as much as we can about travel info, transfers and car rental.

Dinners in villas and other extra services can also be arranged. Finally, our prices are final rates! There are no hidden additional costs. We are flexible with your arrivals and departures and if you need a late check-in this is usually possible.

Casa Lionessa - A Jewell in Taormina

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is one of the best locations in Taormina for its view of Giardini Naxos and Mt. Etna as well as a short walking distance to shops, restaurants and beautiful piazzas. However, this apartment is not for the faint of heart. It is on the 4th floor (no elevator, 62 steps), but the view is worth the effort. The apartment is clean and functional and we thoroughly enjoyed our week's vacation.

A very well presented apartment with everything you need for your holiday.

  • 4 of 5

We were welcomed with warmth by our hosts and a beautiful bowl of fruit, bottle of wine and bottle of water were given to us on arrival. The apartment is up several flights of stairs with no lift, but is worth the effort as it is truly a lovely place to stay. The air conditioning worked well, important in August, and the terrace is lovely to sit out on in the evenings, when the temperature has cooled down. The kitchen is well equipped for preparing meals, and really there is nothing else you could want. August was a bit too hot for us, and we are used to heat, coming from Australia. I think Spring time would be beautiful here! Taormina itself is pretty, and while very crowded in the main streets, the little hidden-away places were a delightful experience.

Fantastic location with a great views

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly what we wanted on the last leg of our around Sicily trip. The hosts, Mr & Mrs Valente were excellent. Firstly they came and found us when we were lost (sadly there were no instructions to enable us to find the apartment easily!), and the fruit and wine provided by them was very enjoyable.

The views from the sun terrace over the tennis courts, gardens and bay were very good, and this lead to an amazing view of Mount Etna.

Once we had worked out how to overcome the hot water problem in the shower everything was just right for us to enjoy Taormina.

Incredible views !!

  • 5 of 5

This is paradise on earth. The location is perfect, minutes from everything. The view from the terrace overlooking the bay and beyond to Etna is memorable. The apartment is well equipped and spotless. The Valente family welcomed us with big smiles, fruit and water. We had wonderful time enjoying breakfast and lunches on the spacious terrace soaking up the vibrant cosmopolitan atmosphere of Taormina.

Fabulous apartment. It's all about the terrace!

  • 5 of 5

The picture is worth a thousand words! Take a look at the view from the terrace. We spent a week here and went up and down everywhere, and there was no nicer spot than our terrace. If you like to go out most of the time, the value of this apartment will be wasted. But if you want to stay at home some and avoid the crowds(Corso Umberto is a lovely walk in AM before 9:00, when the overwashed hordes descend) in a setting more spectacular than any of the restaurants, and if furthermore, you don't mind the 62 steps to the apartment, the temperamental hot water- nice and hot, just takes a while to turn on or the lack of internet( as of this writing), which can be easily remedied by frequent cappucini at any of the many internet access. The closest is Bam Bam just up Via Di Giovanni 9(opens at 7:00, also has nice granite), then you will love this place. Kitchen is well stocked with cookware and also condiments. and the bed is quite comfortable.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! The view of Casa Lionessa is indeed stunning, but we will try to provide our future guests with their own Internet connection as soon as possible. Giulia

Charming Terraced Apartment

  • 4 of 5

With a very warm welcome from our hosts, we knew we would enjoy our stay in this traditional apartment. The apartment is very spacious and well equiped. The terrace is lovely, we spent our early evenings with a glass of wine enjoying the people below playing tennis and overlooking the beautiful sea and up to the hills above Taormina. It is also very well located for exploring beautiful Taormina.
