About this home

A dive into the past, in a quiet corner of the medieval town, away from annoying noises. The house is fresh due to the nature of the biological materials used in the construction, the position and the exposure.
It is located in the hills 7 minutes from the sandy beach and the crystal clear sea, in the bay of Tindari, in front of the Aeolian islands, reachable from the local tourist port of Portorosa with daily motor boat races.

At 7 km. there is the possibility of using the sulphurous water spas.

The accommodation overlooks a small square with a fountain in the center.

It is a typical and ancient rural residence of the early 1900s, restored. Bright with windows and blackout doors and mosquito nets. The house is equipped with modern comforts (Wi-Fi; Hi-Fi; Hair dryer, Clothesline, folding drying rack, table and iron). The furniture is in "poor art" style. Suitable for a comfortable holiday and to easily reach renowned tourist locations in the province (Milazzo, Messina, Taormina). Car parking is free in the public area in front. The kitchen is fully equipped. The large bathroom contains the toilet, the large shower cubicle, hot water and the washing machine. The room is equipped with a double bed, a wardrobe, two bedside tables and a chest containing the change of linen, towels, blankets and additional pillows. In the living room there is a 2-seater sofa bed, flat screen TV and a table to accommodate 6 people. In the entrance, without steps, there is a chest of drawers to hold clothing and a shoe rack with mirror.

Within 300 meters there are all services such as pharmacy, bar, tobacconist, post office, municipal offices, supermarket, medical guard, bus stop, pizzeria, trattoria, cellar.

Panoramic places can be reached in the town on the Nebrodi, Peloritani and Etna mountains, the Gulf of Patti. You can visit historical monuments such as the Palace of the Martian princes, a watchtower of the old destroyed castle, the seventeenth-century churches richly decorated with paintings and polychrome marbles and a Cuba of the Byzantine era. In the nearby coastal hamlets, an urban park equipped and lined with trees for a healthy sporting activity runs for more than 2 km. At 5 minutes there is a riding school where horse lovers can go trekking. In the village you can taste the dishes of typical Sicilian cuisine and taste the wines and extra virgin olive oil that traditionally have always been produced and known throughout Sicily. The restaurants located along the coast cook fresh fish caught on the spot. The location of the accommodation allows you to reach other medieval centers located on the hills such as Tripi, Castroreale, Novara Sicily and the village of Montalbano Elicona with its intact castle of Federico II of Aragona. On the coast you can visit the archaeological sites of the Hellenistic city of Tyndaris, the mosaics of the Roman villa of Patti and 3 km away. the Roman villa of Terme Vigliatore. For shopping we recommend the city of Barcelona P. G and Milazzo, where there is a large shopping center.
