Lemon House is in Sicily, located on the hills overlooking Rina, a suburb of the picturesque Savoca. Voted one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, Savoca became famous when Francis Ford Coppola chose it as the setting of some scenes from “The Godfather” film. Other nearby attractions include Taormina, beloved of the poet Goethe; Naxos, probably the earliest Greek colony on Sicily; and the city of Messina. These are respectively 14, 17 and 30 km away; and for those who want to explore Mount Etna, the celebrated volcano, Zafferana Etnea is one of the best starting points and it can be reached in about an hour.
Lemon House is a boutique B&B. On the outskirts of Savoca, it is set deep in fragrant gardens planted with vibrant bougainvillea bushes, and lemon and olive trees which grow so well in Sicily. Guests will love the refined and relaxing atmosphere of Lemon House, a beautiful neoclassical villa whose architecture and furnishings are reminders of the English country house, while the owners’ warm hospitality is typical of Sicily. An English lawn sets off the front façade, while behind the villa, sun umbrellas and comfortable chaise longues are dotted around the pool, an invitation to rest and relaxation, surrounded by vegetation. Looking out onto the pool area is the wintergarden, with its floor-to-ceiling windows and Flamant furniture; situated on the ground floor, it becomes an elegant yet comfortable breakfast room where truly sumptuous food is served in the mornings. In summertime the wintergarden is also open during the day, and with its windows unfastened it is transformed into a pool bar; here one can try deliciously cold drinks, aperitifs and cocktails, or order and enjoy a light lunch. The renowned Belgian furniture brand, Flamant, has been chosen to create refined interiors where delicate hues of beige, brown and grey prevail. Guests are warmly welcomed to this elegant house by the owner, who worked for years in the hospitality business and is originally from Belgium, and her husband. They have made their home in Sicily and love to open its doors to their visitors.
Lemon House B&B has four rooms decorated with light, warm colours, beautiful furnishings, and furniture that combines the modern and the classic: the result is a welcoming, attractive atmosphere, enhanced by the best comforts of a high-standard guest house, including Wi-Fi. The Villa can also be rented in exclusivity.
