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.

If you're thinking of renting in Taormina...RENT THIS APARTMEMT! We had the pleasure of staying in Casa Lionessa for a month and a half.

The views from the terrace are magnificent, classic, postcard views! From the large terrace, you can see the Public Gardens, down to Giardini Naxos Bay and up the sweeping hills to

Rocca della Madonna. But, Mt. Etna steals the show! We were thrilled to see lava flows on several nights!

Lucia and Fernando truly made us feel like family! We were greeted with a bottle of wine, water.and assorted fruits. The gift of palms for Palm Sunday was an especially endearing touch. They are so kind, genuinely caring, and very helpful. Our slightest request was attended to immediately. And they're nephew Ugo makes a mean cappucino at his cafe just outside the door!

There are many stairs, but we (two older women) took our is well worth the effort!!!

Every convenience and attraction is very close by,

When we return to Taormina, Casa Lionessa will be our home away from home.

Grazie mille per tutta la famiglia Valente. Ti terremo nei nostri cuori e preghiere! Arrivederci!

Memorable Stay in Taormina

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Casa Lionessa was one of our best travel experiences ever. The apartment is spacious and filled with light, with windows in every room. The central kitchen is large and nicely equipped, with a big table in the middle. The WIFI works well. The living and dining areas are comfortable and face the wonderful view. And the terrace....oh, the terrace!!! It is simply a piece of heaven to sit there, at any time of day, to drink in the views of the sea, the town ascending up the slopes of the mountains, and the majestic Mount Etna overlooking it all. It is worth every single one of the 62 steps to reach it. We are in our (somewhat sedentary) mid sixties, and the stairs were not a problem.

Ferdinando and Lucia Valente are immensely gracious and kind hosts, helpful with any request. We can not speak too highly of our stay at Casa Lionessa in Taormina, and would gladly recommend it to all seeking beauty, comfort, and repose. Thank you so much, Ferdinando and Lucia....we look forward to our return!!! Michaela and John

Sunny and bright with stunning views of Mt. Etna and the coast

  • 4 of 5

62 steps to a spacious terrace and a spectacular view of majestic Mt. Etna and the coast. We enjoyed a month over the Christmas holidays in this sunny, apartment with great wi-fi. Located opposite the tennis courts and English gardens, a short uphill stroll to Via Del Corso, shops and restaurants. Mr. Valente picked us up at the bus in town even though we were 5 hours late! We were greeted with a welcome gift of wine, fruit and panettone. The Valente's were kind and thoughtful, even putting up a Christmas tree and decorations. We attended Christmas concerts at the local churches, a band procession down the main street, nativity scenes, Babbo Natale and La Bafana dancing in the piazza, fantastic Christmas Eve bonfires at Piazza Duomo and Piazza S. Caterina. New Year's Eve in Piazza Aprile with a live concert and fireworks going off from rooftops was thrilling and amazing. Truly a magical experience we will remember always.

Suggestions: The climb up to the apartment was made easier with frequent rests along the way. The mattress, pillows and couch are very firm and uncomfortable. No side tables or table lamps in the living area, so we brought in the kitchen chairs. The glass coffee table(which we walked into more than once) could be replaced with a couple of comfortable upholstered chairs. Even though I was assured from the rental agent there was a stove/oven there was not. There was a 3 burner cook-top and a microwave with a browning feature. The browning pan was missing and there were no instructions. We had a take-out Christmas dinner. Removing the doors on the kitchen china cabinet would make it easier to use as they bump into the table. Somewhat limited on kitchen equipment; a ladle, small soup bowls, storage containers and sharp knife would be useful. We figured out the lack of hot water in the shower by running the water in the sink at the same time. Even with the windows closed there is quite a bit of noise at night from the coffee bar at street level. There is also a dog in the building directly across from the bedroom that likes to bark occasionally during the night.

None of these issues should prevent a stay at Casa Lionessa, the hosts, the terrace, view and location are wonderful.

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.
