Luxury villa with private swimming pool situated in the vicinity of Syracuse, one of the most attractive, ancient Greek cities of the Mediterranean. Blending harmoniously with its natural surroundings, Villa Floridia is a contemporary dwelling designed to respect the environment. The use of eco-friendly building and technology solutions - such as the photovoltaic, solar thermal, radiant heating and cooling systems and the Schuco aluminum thermal break frames - have improved the energy efficiency performance of the villa, which has received a class A rating. Extending over two floors, it comprises three interlocking volumes: the central block - the volume tower made of reinforced concrete - is the entrance, the side blocks house the living area on one side and the sleeping area on the other side. These volumes embrace the swimming pool and its solarium that offer beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. Tastefully furnished with contemporary pieces, Villa Floridia with its six cozy bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, cinema room with projector, kitchen, living and dining room is perfect for a large family or a group of friends. It is also an excellent base for exploring the south east of Sicily, from the baroque towns and Unesco world heritage sites of the Val di Noto to the Nature Reserves of Cavagrande and Vendicari. Only a short drive away from the villa is the wonderful sandy beach of Fontane Bianche.
