Endless sea views await you from all over the house, the living rooms, some of the bedrooms and the terraces. You can swim from the fine sandy beach which is diagonally across from the house, approx. 50 metres away. The main square, which is the meeting place in the evenings for the locals, is only a few steps from the front door.
The house was originally used as a summer residence by one of the most powerful aristocratic families in the baroque town of Scicli, which is a few kilometres away up in the mountains. The elegant facade of the house stands out amongst the more humble dwellings of the neighbourhood, where the poor fishermen once used to live.
