Portopalo Di Capo Passero chateau / country house description

Perfect for groups. Villa Torrefano is a 400 square meters stunning 100 year old aristocratic villa in a fabulous cliff-top position overlooking the Ionian Sea, and the island “Isola Capo Passero”, the most southern point of Italy, the place where the Ionian Sea meets the Mediterranean Sea. It would be difficult to ask for a more delightful setting. Torrefano is perfect for relaxing holidays. With the possibility of organising a cook, you might find that you will never stray very far from home, even though its proximity to the stunning baroque towns of Syracuse, Noto and Ragusa Ibla make it an excellent base for a cultural exploration of this UNESCO World Heritage area. Two white sand beaches distance only a couple of hundred meters. After passing through the gate, the first view of the villa is of green lawns and the turquoise sea. It is also possible to see the picturesque village of Marzamemi. This fisherman’s village boasts restaurants, pizzerias and shops selling delicious local produce.


Marzamemi: Heading south towards the south-eastern tip of Sicily, you find a fishing village called Portopalo. Taking the road from Marzamemi to Portopalo, but turning off before an impressive castle on the sea, one can turn left and visit the old ‘Tonnara’, one of the most scenic and extraordinary sights to be seen in Sicily. Marzamemi, which is an ancient fishing village in the extreme southeast of Sicily. The tradition of all things marine is still very much alive in Marzamemi today. Only recently has it become a popular destination for Italians who enjoy the combination of the area’s natural beaches and the vibrancy of an authentic coastal village. The village of Marzamemi boasts many restaurants, pizzerias and shops selling delicious local produce such as locally caught and processed tuna and swordfish or the famous cherry tomatoes from nearby Pachino.

San Lorenzo: San Lorenzo, which lies 2 kilometres to the north of Marzamemi, marks the beginning of one of the most beautiful stretches of the Sicilian coast. Here the shore is characterised by golden sand beaches, turquoise seas and white limestone rocks. San Lorenzo borders on the natural reserve of ‘Vendicari’. Here you’ll find a breathtaking variety of Mediterranean flora and fauna, exotic beaches and Byzantine ruins. It is also a veritable oasis of rest and tranquillity for an array of bird species.

Noto & Syracuse: Noto, a magnificent little city famous for its stunning Baroque architecture, lies 10 kilometres away. You can’t miss the traditional afternoon stroll down its main street. One of the most beautiful cities in the Mediterranean, Syracuse - famous for its Ancient Greek ruins - is situated just 40 kilometres away. The heart of modern Syracuse lies in its historical quarter, situated on the peninsula of Ortigia. The neighbouring province of Ragusa has cities such as Ragusa Ibla and Modica, which are known for their Baroque architecture and their houses that have been dug out of the region’s limestone rock. Ragusa is a popular destination for beachgoers, as it boasts endless golden sandy beaches.

                          At the south-eastern tip of Sicily, you find a fishing village called Portopalo. Taking the road from Marzamemi to Portopalo, but turning off before an impressive castle on the sea, one can turn left and visit the old Tonnara, a scenic and extraordinary sight. 4 km away from Marzamemi, an ancient and very picturesque fishing village with a small port and vividly painted boats. The tradition of all things marine is still very much alive in Marzamemi today. Only recently has it become a popular destination for Italians who enjoy the combination of the area’s natural beaches and the vibrancy of an authentic coastal village that boasts many restaurants, pizzerias and shops selling delicious local produce such as locally caught and processed tuna and swordfish or the famous cherry tomatoes from nearby Pachino. San Lorenzo, 2 km up north, marks the beginning of one of the most beautiful stretches of the Sicilian coast: the shore is characterised by golden sand beaches and turquoise seas.

                          About: “We have been with Homeaway since 2006, proposing houses that are able to unfold Sicily's colours and charm at best. Houses with quality furnishing on unique locations, with incredible views or with a pool, always accurately selected in order to satisfy our main wish: to see you falling in love with Sicily just like we did. We quickly reply in the language you feel more comfortable with. We provide you with transparent information and true pictures. What you see is exactly what you get. We advise you as much as we can about about travel info, transfers and car rental. Dinners in villas and other extra services can also be arranged. Once in the house you can always count on our reliable keyholders. We are flexible with your arrivals and departures and if you need a late check-in this is often possible. Finally, our prices are final rates! There are no hidden additional costs.”
