EXCELLENT ESCAPE

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were treated royally when we stayed here. The attendants were very helpful. The pool was luxurious. The space well decorated and plenty of room. We wish we had brought our kids. A short drive to town, we found everything we needed to see or do. The use of bikes was a nice bonus too. Would stay here again with the whole family.

LOVELY PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
Clean house with everything available. The only thing I missed was a freezer. Monica was very helpful and made us feel very welcome. The pool and garden are lovely. The house is quiet, no noise from the neighbours. We would come back if we could!

THIS IS THE PLACE TO RELAX!

  • 5 of 5
What more could you want? From the moment you arrive and receive a warm welcome from Monica, you know that you have chosen the right place. Gabriele is a wonderful host and all the staff just want to make you happy! The Case del Principe is in a wonderful setting, surrounded by the estate’s lemons, oranges and limes, with steep hills as a backdrop and a clear view of Etna. The grounds are a mass of flowers, beautifully kept, with plenty of shaded and comfortable seating both next to the pool and away from it. The beautiful blue pool is modern, well maintained and very clean. Each apartment has its own shaded table and chairs and a BBQ. The estate wine is full of warmth and sunshine – just like everyone we met!
Close to town for shopping yet rural enough to see the daily goat herd pass by.
Thank you so much for a great holiday – we’ll be back!

LEONE, TAORMINA, LE CASE DEL PRINCIPE, SICILY

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a week staying in Leone. The cottage was as we had expected from the description. The gardens and pool were better than expected with lovely views of the surrounding countryside including Mount Etna.
This is an ideal place for anyone wanting rest and relaxation in a tranquil setting that is within easy reach (by car) of many places of interest.
The staff were friendly and helpful without being obtrusive.
As a bonus Mount Etna put on a performance on our last evening there.
We would go back in the future.

HIDDEN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
Even though this was already our second stay, we had some difficulties finding the place, but in the end we did find the paradise. There was a very well kept garden full of flowers and Mediterranean plants. Also, we found the beautiful swimming pool right in the middle of the lemon grove, giving a sense of great peace and tranquility. The view of the Etna from the pool was fantastic.
The house was spotless, and all we needed extra was a microwave which was duly brought to us. Monica, our house manager, we found to be very kind and efficient, and she was full of advice on restaurants and beaches in the area, as well as information on supermarkets, shopping and pharmacies. The house is simple but very cosy and inviting, with a lot of attention paid to even the smallest details. The rooms were airy and well lit, with good air conditioning. There was a lovely pergola outside the house, perfect for dining all together in the evening.
The beach was easily accessible, and Taormina was barely 15 minutes driving away. Other great attractions included the gorges of Alcantara and little towns at the foot of the Etna (best among them for us was Castiglione). We had a lovely stay, and we would love to come back again next year (Monica has promised us that we will find a freezer as well as our fridge next time).
