The Sicily region
Sicily, more than an island! Discover Sicily and discover the world. The world's first multicultural society, Sicily is Italy's (and Europe's) most historically cosmopolitan region, having been ruled by Asians, Africans and Europeans. Sicily is black and white and a million shades of gray.
There's no other place on Earth like Sicily. Our island is a unique place full of art, archaeology, history, folklore and breathtaking scenery. And, of course, great food. Sicily is almost a nation unto itself. The enchanting land where Archimedes taught and Saint Paul preached was a Greek colony, a Roman province, an Arab emirate and a Norman kingdom.
Millefiori is situated in Torrenova, a small Sicilian commune which is centrally located in the region of Messina and Palermo.
It is therefore a great base for exploring the North-Eastern and North-Western parts of Sicily, Taormina, the Alcantara Gorges and Cefalù, but there are also plenty of interesting things to see in the nearby surrounding area, like:
San Marco D'Alunzio (an ancient village set high upon a hill) Fragalà Abbey, the magnificent Nebrodi Park, the Tindari Sanctuary, Santo Stefano di Camastra (the village of ceramics) and Sant’Angelo di Brolo and Floresta, which are famous for their culinary traditions.
The Aeolian Islands can also be easily reached by by hydrofoil which leaves from Sant'Agata di Militello, a village just 10 minutes from the villa.
Day trips to the Aeolian Islands by motor yacht or days of sports fishing can be organised in Summer and deckchairs and beach umbrellas can be reserved at the beach in Capo D'orlando.
Jeep tours can be organised all year round in the Nebrodi Park and the beautiful Catafurco waterfalls, as well as carriage rides in the park or trips to the lovely Marinello nature reserve.
