We are delighted to present the “Residenza Ancora Bianca“, a wonderful example of Sicilian „Dolce Vita“. The small holiday residence was carefully renovated in 2012 and is particularly remarkable due to its location on the picturesque coast of the Gulf of Patti, on a beautiful sandy beach, opposite the world-famous Aeolian Islands. In total, the well-kept, family-run residence has five detached villas, each with 3 most attractive apartments. Each of these 2- and 3-room apartments was re-furnished tastefully and with great attention to detail during the renovation, the focus being put on both an attractive interior, combined with modern comforts. Each apartment has gratis W-LAN and air-conditioning. The highlight of the apartments is doubtless the expansive, private outdoor area with some breathtaking views of the Mediterranean and the Aeolian islands. On clear days, you can even glimpse the Volcano Etna behind the Nebrodi mountains. Paradise seems to become reality when you enjoy an evening here, with a glass of Sicilian wine and watch the sun set over the ocean! Communal terrace, gazebo and outdoor shower complete the overall harmonious picture of the Residence. The gratis sun-loungers by the pool (approx. 5 x 10 m, open from approx. mid-April to approx. mid-November, weather permitting) provide an opportunity to relax and to fully enjoy your holiday, with the wonderful view of the sea and the off-shore Aeolian Islands. Those who prefer to bathe in the sea have the Mediterranean at their door-step (please see price-list for beach-loungers). The centre of Terme Vilgiatore, which is approx. 2 km away, offers several ice-cream parlours, bars, a bakery, a butcher and other small shops for every-day needs. The numerous restaurants with pizzas, fresh fish and local specialities provide an impression of Italian life-style. In the grounds of the Residence you may avail of a separate laundry-room with a washing-machine for communal use as well as 5 BBQ’s. Each apartment has a gratis parking space within the gated grounds.
Just returned from a great holiday here. Great location for visiting Etna and Stromboli on an underdeveloped part of the coast. Very clean complex, great to be able to step out onto the beach or use the pool. You need a car as there are no shops / restaurants within walking distance.
Terme Vigliatore (approx. 7.200 inhabitants) is in the Northeast of Sicily in the picturesque Gulf of Patti, directly opposite the world-famous Aeolian Islands. The former Roman settlement and the spa of today became known through the archaelogical excavations at the „Villa Romana di San Biagio“ and above all through its two Thermal Baths, the alkaline spring „Ciappazzi“ (approx. 26° C) and the sulferous „Venus Spring (approx. 36° C). The thermal springs were used by the Romans and nowadays visitors enjoy massages, fango treatments and a variety of relaxation facilities. Terme Vigliatore is a perfect starting point to explore the „Island of the eternal Spring“. The towns of Cefalù, Taormina, Catania, Messina and of course Palermo can be reached within one or two hours by car, the Aeolian Islands (Islands of Lipari) by boat from Milazzo, daily, once an hour. A definite must is undoubtedly a „Dance on the Volcano“, an excursion to Europe's highest and most active volcano, Etna. The UNESCO World Culture Heritage is just 2 hours drive by car from Terme Vigliatore. Within 20 to 30 minutes car drive from Terme Vigliatore you can reach the mediaeval town centre of Milazzo, with one of the most imposing castles in Sicily, as well as Tindari with its world-famous White Lagune. Above all, the former Greek settlement „Tyndaris“ is impressive, which due to its varied history, during which it was ruled by the Romans, Carthaginians, Byzantines and Arabs, has a unique heritage of historically significant buildings. Well worth a visit are the excavations at the antique Greek city, with its very well maintained theatre, the pilgrimage church which is dedicated to the black Madonna of Tindari. Legend has it that a young girl fell from a rock into the sea, at the place where the church now stands. In her despair, the girl's mother prayed to the Holy Mother and she raised her hand from the sea and saved the girl. The inhabitants of Tindari still believe today that the lagune in the town, which reaches out into the sea, like an arm, is proof of the miraculous salvation of the girl.
