Immersed in an oasis of peace and tranquility, situated on an estate bordered by a beautiful bay, La Grande Reserve enjoys a privileged position.
The property includes 7 acres of land surrounding the main villa and the guest house, which is situated at about 80 meters from the villa. The large garden with tall palm trees that stretches down to the sea makes this wonderful place even more fascinating. In another area of the property, in front and to the side of the guest house, rows of vines line the rolling hills bordering the sea.
This luxury villa is located in a wonderful panoramic position, one of the most beautiful on the Sicilian coast. The wildlife present in the bay is evidence for an uncontaminated environment. From the villa you can do bird watching directly from the pool side and see the pink flamingos bathing in the sea. The beach is sandy in most of the areas. The part of coast near La Grande Reserve is quite exclusive, therefore it hasn't been overcrowded by millions of tourists! You will find both private resorts and wild beaches.
