Situated on the coast between Letojanni and Fondaco Parrino on the Ionian Coast of Sicily, amidst an idyllic olive and lemon grove and just a stone's throw from the sea, is this lovely property.
A short distance from the main coastal road that connects Letojanni with Forza d'Agro, down a gravel track you arrive at the main gates and the private 1500m2 gated garden. From the outside, you cannot imagine the charming world within. On the right as you enter is the garage and parking for several cars, and to the left faces the front of the villa covered in bougainvillea and vines. The property, that needs some updating, It is located in an isolated position. Is on 3 levels with an established garden full of hibiscus, roses, geraniums and you follow the path leading to two generous patios and one of the two entrances of the house. On the ground floor is spacious and light with living/dining room with fireplace, a downstairs bedroom/study with small library, the kitchen, a bathroom and a storeroom. Going upstairs, there are two double bedrooms, each with en-suite bathroom/shower rooms. Two further terraces with one facing the majestic castle of Capo Sant'Alessio, and from the other larger one you can see the picturesque town of Taormina up on the hill. From both you have an unrestricted view of the sea and coastline, palm trees, and your colourful Mediterranean garden, and are enveloped by citrus and olive trees - some of which are several hundred years old. This house invites you to have a nap on one of the terraces or a family barbeque in the garden - whenever you want. Just pack your swimming bag - you are a minute's walk to the sea and a further minute down to the beach. By car it is approximately 15 minutes drive to Taormina - the pearl of the Ionian. In winter you have a working fireplace using your own cut olive tree logs, with full central heating and can live very cosily. You are about 1 hour's drive to the volcano Mount Etna for some superb skiing with the most incredible views across the whole of Sicily - and on the way home pick up some wine from one of the exclusive Etna vinyards.
