It is an ideal place for those who seek both the tranquility of the countryside and the bustling atmosphere of a typical Sicilian seaside town. At the same time this area is ideal for visiting many other parts of Sicily and allows an escape from mass tourism. Here you can have a more direct contact with the locals and their culture, this usually makes for a more meaningful vacation which leaves long-lasting impressions.
The residence is located approximately 300 meters above sea-level and is only 4 km (5 minutes by car) to the town and its beaches. We are steps away from some of the most beautiful beaches of the Tyrrhenian coast. (Capo Calava', Capo Tindari and Capo d'Orlando). You will have no problem communicating, for there are fluent English and French speakers at the Borgo for detailed help. You can also rely on our assitance in planning day trips and much more.
