Property in the treasury of Sicily: Syracuse
Cicero himself described Syracuse as "the largest and most beautiful of all Greek cities" and that was more than 2000 years ago. Greek settlers founded the city on today's Italian terrain. Still to this day, one can find an incredible number of tracks from the lively history of the city - from Carthaginians, Greeks and Romans. Syracuse is a true archeological treasure. And the nearby
invites you to start your own history in Syracuse.
What makes Sykraus so attractive as a location for the property? The historic center of Syracuse is located on the small peninsula of Ortygia, from which the local population originated almost 3000 years ago. Dreamlike sandstone-colored buildings rising around the old market square, which seems almost sleepy during the day. Here life begins - in typical southern italian style - only at dusk, when artists and musicians showcase their program. Throughout the city, you can find temples from ancient times - a true delight for those interested in history. A highlight of Syracuse, however, comes from the recent past:
A villa with sea views in the nature reserve of Plemmirio
Mediterranean villa as the center of peace
Numerous panoramic windows, a lush pool, from which one can observe the Mediterranean and a gorgeous open architecture, make your dream of a Mediterranean estate in Sicily come true. Four bedrooms offer an inviting space for guests, who can be spoiled with culinary delights on the spacious terrace - with its own pizza oven! In the pergola overlooking the sea, you can end every night by romantic candlelight. The Mediterranean flair is complete by help of the generous palm-lined lawns and the rustic fireplace inside the villa.
Away from the Villa, numerous trails offer great opportunities for exploration of the Sicilian surroundings. For further trips, you can leave the island by ferry from Syracuse or take a plane at the airport of Catania, in the shadow of mighty Mount Etna.
The fascination with this area lies in the fabulous history of Syracuse, the excellent properties, the Mediterranean climate throughout much of the year and the so typical Sicilian serenity. Here relaxation and enjoyment of life are truly in the air - this is simply one of the most fascinating regions of Europe.
