In particular some of the areas guests are able to visit by staying at the farmhouse are: Acireale and the Aci (10 Km), baroque city located on a lava terrace overlooking the sea and famous thermal center, the Acireale Timpa, a natural reserve (8 Km), made of lava rocks overlooking the ocean, 7 kilometers long and entirely covered by vegetation, the natural reserve of the Cyclopes islands, the Riviera of the Cyclopes, Catania (26 Km), ancient city rich of interesting sites such as the Cathedral, the elephant fountain, the municipal palace, the university square, the Via Etnea, the Ursino Castle, the Via dei Crociferi etc; Taormina (25 Km), located on a hill overlooking the sea, famous for its landscape, its beaches, its archeological sites in particular the Greek Theatre that has been beautifully preserved; Mount Etna Park (18 Km); the ski lifts (35 km); the towns on Mount Etna, from 5 to 30 Km Milo, Linguaglossa, S.

On the southern part towards Catania, the coast line is characterized by lava stones and it took shaped during the course of the centuries by the friction between the lava and the sea water (Stazzo, S. Tecla, S. Maria La Scala, Acitrezza, Acicastello). Further south from Catania the beautiful Playa beach is located, with its fine and yellow sand.

The Agriturismo San Leonardello is a charming and lovely place with a welcoming and very friendly family as hosts. The grounds are beautiful with lots of lemon- (and other) trees, charming simple rooms, a delicious homemade breakfast, a very nice pool and stunning views of Mount Etna, the sea and Taormina. It is a rather quiet place (apart from the lovely but during the nights incessantly barking dog), which we love, and a good starting point for trips to Catania, the Etna, Taormina and many more delightful places. We also drove to Caltagirone, where the famous ceramics are made and to beautiful Syracuse. We personally would have liked it if there would have been a nice little village with some cafés one could reach on foot and have some nice walks, but the next village doesn't offer much in that respect and I would not recommend walking the small distance along the small yet quite frequented and dangerous road. So if you don't mind either taking the car for everything you want to do outside the Agriturismo or spending lots of time on the grounds of it, which would have been absolutely lovely had the weather been better (we had the bad luck of being there during the recent "Medicane" with lots of rain and thunderstorms), this is a wonderful place to be, a proper little paradise. I can only praise the owners for their friendliness and the care they take to make the place special and charming and to suggest special destinations to their guests - it was always a pleasure talking to them!

We loved this place. It is perfect for families- my children are 12, 10 and 8 years old. the host Vera was so friendly and helpful and gave us an incredibly warm welcome to Sicily. The property is surrounded by lemon groves, fig trees, olive trees and has gorgeous sea views as well as Mount Etna. The shared pool is lovely and mostly we had it to ourselves. The breakfasts and optional evening meals were superb. Opportunities to do a cooking course there too. The main road is quite near but doesn’t really detract from the charm of the place. My daughter loved their pet dogs particularly 16 yr old Lulu! The location is perfect for day trips to the gorgeous volcanic coastline, excursions to Mount Etna, Taormina, Catania, wine- tasting, Etnaland (children’s adventure park) Highly recommended.

Con mia moglie e due coppie di amici abbiamo soggiornato in questo agriturismo B&B due giorni a fine agosto 2016. Devo dire che siamo rimasti molto soddisfatti di questa struttura sotto tutti i punti di vista: bella location (camere spaziose, bella piscina in mezzo ad un prato ben tenuto e ad agrumeti), la cordialità dei proprietari, ma soprattutto l'ottima colazione a buffet con dolci caldi appena sfornati, pane sempre fresco, yogurt, vassoio di affettati e formaggi e le squisite marmellate di agrumi fatte in casa (limone, mandarino, clementino. Sicuramente da consigliare.
