Thoughts of autumn…..Stunning Sicily!

Oct 12th, 2009 | By | Category: Our Blog

Let’s talk Sicily……..A place that conjures up many thoughts – traditions and soul immediately spring to mind least it beng the largest island in the Mediterranean, with a diverse landscape of colours from Etna’s top covered with snow to the warm and wild coast of the Zingaro nature reserve, to the verdant Madonie, from the Greek temples of Agrigento to the windmills and salt pans of Trapani. Few other regions can boast such a variety of natural landscapes and nature reserves like Sicily.

Perhaps then that is why Sicily was Italy’s  No.1 tourist destination this year.  Not only that Sicily is increasingly becoming more and more popular  for those who want to buy a house.  British, German, eastern European buyers, are finding a good opportunity to invest in the island’s properties.   Sicily boasts the best climate in Europe and the best price quality ratio in the real estate market.  So, not surprisingly, many people look to Sicily to buy their second home, whether  on the coast, in the countryside, on the islands or the mountains – you are definitely spoilt for choice!

I thought I would highlight a selection of lovely properties across the island:

 Casa Eolianathumb_1761_1576_6.jpg

The enchantment of Salina, one of the pearls of the Aeolian Islands, is situated Casa Eoliana http://www.property.livinginitaly.co.uk/index.php?action=listingview&listingID=1761   The house, built in the typical Aeolian manner, has a wide terrace with a wonderful view over the bay of Malfa and of the sea. The property for sale consists of the villa (130 square metres) with terrace (75 square metres), the detached annex (55 square metres) with terrace (25 square metres) and a land of 6.500 square metres. For those who love the sea and the unspoilt nature this house, surrounded by a garden replete with cactus and Mediterranean plants, is sheer paradise.


Villa Solonia – Modica

In the Val di Noto, a few kilometres from the UNESCO city of Modica, a masterpiece of the 18th century baroque, is situated Villa Solonia. http://www.property.livinginitaly.co.uk/index.php?action=listingview&listingID=1763   This country dwelling, a former noble residence, consists of the villa (roughly 680 square metres), the two annexes (130 square metres) and the courtyard (roughly 1800 square metres).

In the western side of the island, not far from Palermo, the main town with more than 2000 years of history, is situated “Casale in Pietra” http://www.property.livinginitaly.co.uk/index.php?action=listingview&listingID=1762 that has been entirely restored and improved with the realization of a charming, private swimming pool with a terrace-solarium. The property is situated on a knoll and is surrounded by beautiful countryside. It consists of the house, the annex and a land of roughly 10.000 square metres. The dwelling is on two levels and its interiors are wide, functional and well-proportioned. At the rear there is a small apartment with a loft and a toilet. The annex, about 30 metres away from the main house, consists of one large room with a loft, also with a toilet, and overlooks a small patio. For those who are looking for the right mix (the peacefulness of the countryside, the proximity to the seaside and to the island’s most important city, and a swimming pool) combined with an advantageous price and a good opportunity of investment this is the right property.
