    Location description

    Villa Anna is set in a quiet haven yet close to the spectacular beaches and attractions of eastern Sicily. Just 5 minutes drive (2 km) down the hill are the coastal towns of Villafranca Tirrena, with its sandy beaches, shops and restaurants, and Ortoliuzzo with its beautiful sandy beach. Here you can sunbath or swim in the crystal-clear warm waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea which make swimming pleasant from mid-April through October. The villa is within easy driving distance from the breathtaking sandy beaches of Milazzo (25 mins drive) and Tindari (35 mins drive), with its extraordinary sandy tongues (a sandbank stretching 1.5km into the sea which is now a nature reserve). Just past Tindari is the charming seaside resort of Capo d'Orlando, with its magnificent sandy beaches and turquoise waters, while the stunning Aeolian Islands are only a short hop on the hydrofoil from Milazzo, making it ideal for a day trip.

    Apart from the beaches there are numerous attractions within easy driving distance of the property including the stunning medieval town of Taormina (40 mins drive), Tindari (35 mins drive), one of the most interesting archaeological sites in Sicily, with its magnificent Sanctuary and Greek-Roman remains, the Nebrodi nature reserve (1 hour drive) with its wonderful walking routes and unspoiled hill towns. Also very easily accomplished are day trips to the charming Cefal and to Mount Etna volcano, which are a little over 1 hour's drive away. A visit to the small hill-top village of Serro (a 10 mins walk from the property) will give you a unique opportunity to sample rural Sicilian life as it has been lived for centuries.

    Owing to its ease of access to the motorway (2 km), the villa is ideally located to explore eastern Sicily, including Tindari with its lakes, Sanctuary and Greek-Roman remains, the picturesque fishing village of Cefal, the charming Milazzo and Capo DOrlando with their stunning beaches, the medieval town of Taormina, Mount Etna volcano, the Aeolian Islands, the hill towns of the Nebrodi nature reserve and the UNESCO-protected baroque towns of Siracusa, Modica, Ragusa and Noto thousands of years of history in one island!
