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.

VILLA DUE LEONI CONSISTS OF:

- Ground floor: a huge living space with dining table, sofa bed, lounge and fireplace, separate kitchen and toilet. From the living and the kitchen you can access the garden.

- First floor: three double bedrooms, a large corridor / bedroom with two bunk beds (four sleeps), two full bathrooms, and a huge terrace with view of the Etna and the sea. Stairs connects the terrace to the garden below. The terrace has a veranda with a big dining table.

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!

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!!

Oasis in Riposto

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful family gathering at Villa Due Leoni. Our hosts, Mr and Mrs Foti were extremely warm and accommodating and the villa, gardens and swimming pool were beautifully maintained, providing us with an authentic Sicilian experience. We looked forward to returning to the villa after some busy days of sightseeing at Mt Etna and Taormina. It was a real treat to shop in the local market in Riposto, prepare our meals in the outdoor kitchen and dine on the terrace with views over the orchard to the Ionian Sea. We thoroughly recommend Villa Due Leoni and will always treasure the memories of our stay.

Villa Due Leoni

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the villa, helped by Mr and Mrs Foti being most friendly and helpful. It was necessary for them to meet us in Riposto and guide us to the villa as it was difficult to find, not showing up on our GPS.

We availed ourselves of the terrace and pool for relaxing, eating and swimming. The kitchens and BBQ were great. The position of the villa enabled us to visit many places in the surroundings, Mt. Etna, Taormina, and further afield . It was a well serviced, comfortable place to stay, surrounded by citrus orchards.
