A charming country house located in a rural and beautiful setting with wonderful views over the Sicilian sea and the Aeolian Islands. Set in three acres of peaceful countryside and surrounded by olive groves and fruit trees, Villa Anna enjoys a secluded hillside setting, offering the ultimate in privacy and relaxation.
Immersed in the green of Sicilian hills and boasting the superb panorama of the Tyrrhenian coast, Villa Anna is a secluded country house providing the perfect way to mix countryside and sea (only 2 km away). The villa is perfect for a family holiday "away from it all": life here follows the gentle, sweet rhythm of the seasons, an ideal environment for those looking for peace and quiet, breathtaking sea views and somewhere to unwind after a hard year’s work.
Less than a 5 minutes drive (2 km) down the hill is the coastal town of Villafranca Tirrena, with its shops, supermarkets, restaurants and beautiful sandy beaches. 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 ideally located to explore eastern Sicily including the stunning town of Taormina, Tindari with its lakes, Sanctuary and Greek-Roman remains, Milazzo, Cefalù and Capo d’Orlando with their superb beaches, Mount Etna volcano, the Aeolian Islands, the Nebrodi nature reserve with its wonderful walking routes and unspoiled hill towns, the UNESCO-protected baroque towns of Siracusa, Modica, Ragusa and Noto... thousands of years of history in one island! A visit to the small hill-top village of Serro (a 10 mins walk away) will give you a unique opportunity to sample rural Sicilian life as it has been lived for centuries.
