Property description

Perched on a high cliff at the tip of Capo Vaticano, this unique property is located in a gated compound where nature has been preserved from the over-construction that plagues much of the Italian coast. Years of care and meticulous landscape design have transformed this cliff into a green haven, from which to enjoy breath-taking views of the Mediterranean, and the Aeolian Islands. The volcano of Stromboli, directly west on the horizon, is the protagonist of some of the most spectacular sunsets you will ever see.

The compound enjoys a private access to the beach below, but the addition of a nine-foot/ten-inch by 50-foot/ten-inch (three metres by 15.5 metres) pool has greatly enhanced the enjoyability of this very exclusive villa.

The property consists of a main house with kichen and living areas, master bedroom and second bedroom, each with en-suite bathroom, and two guest houses, separate from the main house, each with a bedroom and a bathroom.

ARRIVAL POLICY: Since this house is not a hotel, we unfortunately do not have flexibility for your arrival time. YOU MUST MAKE YOUR TRAVEL PLANS TO ENSURE THAT YOU ARRIVE AT THE HOUSE BETWEEN 4PM AND 7PM. You cannot arrive earlier, because we need time to prepare the house for you. You cannot arrive later, because a person who does not live on the premises will be sent specifically to meet you, and this person is not available after hours. If there is a chance that you might arrive late, you should make plans to stay at a hotel and arrive the following day. You will not be reimbursed for the cost of the hotel. This applies also in case of a delay that is beyond your control, such as a flight cancellation, or a train strike. We apologize for the inconvenience, but we cannot accommodate late arrival under any circumstances.

Year Purchased: 1984

Why the Owner Chose San Nicolò VV, Italy:
My husband started vacationing in this area in the early 1970's and grew attached to its breath-taking beauty, rich history, and unspoiled nature. Much has changed in the area since then, but within our enclave we were able to maintain the original character of the landscape, making this spot a truly special place on the Italian coast. Being so far South, the house is very enjoyable throughout the year. We don't consider this just a beach house- it's a wonderful getaway where in mid-January you can already enjoy seeing blooming almond trees and wild flowers.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The most unique aspect of this house is certainly its dramatic siting. On the Mediterranean, usually when you see buildings sited like ours, they are either lighthouses, Moorish towers, or religious buildings. A private residence perched on a cliff, and in a place that still offers it complete privacy and seclusion is not easy to find. Our closest neighbors are two families of hawks, and they are extremely discerning creatures...
