We are in the area of Messina, between the Monti Peloritani and the Tyrrhenian Sea. Milazzo is known for its port that acts as a launch pad for the Aeolian Islands while the town and the area are full of pleasant surprises. A few minutes from the centre of Milazzo, in a residential area, is Villa Afrodite. The familiar air of this comfortable, two-floor villa makes you immediately feel at ease. On the ground floor is a spacious area composed of a cosy living room and a dining area, separated by an arch and characterised by typical Sicilian coloured tiles, and a built-in kitchen conveniently located between the living area and the outdoor dining area. Everyone will find their own space at Villa Afrodite where a group of friends or a family can spread out between the reading room with Frau chair where they can lose themselves with a book, the living room on the first floor where they can relax on the comfortable sofas, the wellness room with gym equipment and Finnish sauna. A large bathroom with Jacuzzi tub is for the use of the three bedrooms on the first floor. Outside, the swimming pool will offer moments of leisure and play. Near the slightly secluded swimming pool is a comfortable round shaded seat, the perfect place for an afternoon siesta. Exploring the surroundings, the churches, iconic streets, and native delicacies, you will discover little villages such as Castroreale and Tindari just a few minutes from Milazzo. Of the Aeolian islands, the closest are Vulcano and Lipari which can be reached by hydrofoil in about an hour. Milazzo itself, with its castle and old borgo, the elegant streets of the town centre and the nature reserves testifying to clear seas, is just waiting to be discovered. Finally, just over an hour away is the Pearl of the Ionian Sea, Taormina, with its breathtaking views, old places like the Greek Theatre, various buildings, restaurants and shops of high quality.
The villa has two floors connected by an internal staircase. The main entrance goes into a small hallway that leads to the imposing staircase up to the first floor. To the right of the entrance, passing through a cosy reading room, you come to the spacious hall consisting of a comfortable sitting area with working fireplace and an elegant dining area. The living area is directly connected to the kitchen. From the dining area, a short corridor leads to a bathroom with shower and a guest bathroom with shower, which also serves as a laundry room, and then to the kitchen, brick-built as in the old days and with convenient access to the garden with outdoor dining area. Upstairs is a sitting room with fireplace and, next to it, a brightly-lit room with gym equipment and Finnish sauna. The first floor is completed by two double bedrooms and one twin bedroom which share the large bathroom with double basin and large Jacuzzi tub. The three bedrooms on the first floor face onto balconies.
The garden of approximately 650 sq m, surrounding the swimming pool, has direct access from the living room, reading room and kitchen that lead directly onto the terrace equipped with dining table, mobile barbecue and a sitting area. The level garden surrounding the swimming pool consists of a lawn dotted with flowering shrubs and a few fruit trees, including a mango under which is a round seat with shade cover. The parking area for three cars is located in a drive inside the entrance gate of the property.Please notice that photos are taken in spring, therefore flower blossoming, and the colours of the gardens' grass could be different at the moment of your arrival at the villa.
The swimming pool is located in the centre of the garden on the same level as the ground floor of the villa which is about 10 m away and can be reached in just a few steps from the ground floor French windows. The rectangular pool, lined in PVC and equipped with chlorine purification and submerged Roman steps, measures 6 x 12 m with a constant depth of 1.50 m. The surrounding, stone-paved sunbathing area is equipped with sunbeds, sofa and armchairs, and a dining table for eight shaded by an umbrella. On one side is a cold-water shower and a cylindrical bed structure with shade cover. The pool can be used at night as well, thanks to both internal and external lighting, and is available from the last Saturday in April until the first Saturday in October.
