Happy Tuesday Escapists! A paradise of opportunity in Sicily! An ancient hamlet of FIVE homes, one of which has been renovated to an exquisite standard, the rest to renovate. Terraced gardens and iconic views!
I think this might be heaven. The property is currently run as a luxe bed & breakfast. The photos are to die for. I would spend days and days swinging in the hammock alone! The four-level terraced garden produces several varieties of fruits and vegetables and has stunning views. There is plenty to do and see in the area. The main house has been renovated beautifully. And then there are four MORE houses? The potential is overwhelming!
From the listing on Idealista:
