Historic Sicily villa in a breathtaking setting
This luxury villa in Sicily sits on a hillside overlooking the stunning Gulf of Naxos.
The property, which now is for sale, was built around 1860.
The villa is directly accessible to the sea, while being only 500 meters from the centre of historic Taormina.
The luxury villa, built on three floors, boasts a total floor space of approx. 1,050m². The villa is surrounded by a 40,000m² beautiful park, which extends along the coastline with a path leading down to the seafront. There are within the grounds exotic plants and trees, stone and bronze statues, a fountain and also a swimming pool (15m x 8m).
The house is also famous for the many scenes shot here during the making of the globally acclaimed film “The Godfather”.
Directly across the street from the main villa is another property which consists of a three car garage and apartments up stairs for the caretakers of the property. The home and garage is situated on another 10,000 square meters of land that has been zoned for development of a small luxury hotel.
The Sicily estate is sold with the original furnishings.
