Have you ever been to Avola in the province of Syracuse, you have most likely been amazed by La Tonnara; the magnificent, waterfront stone property on a small peninsula surrounded by the sea. It covers an area of 7.200 sq m with 6.900 sq m of stone buildings. This landmark is now for sale and here you can either create an amazing five star hotel (planning permit already in place), or convert into your own, private, seaside fortress with garden, pool, tennis court and whatever is desired.
La Tonnara started out like a fishing village and was later transformed to a maritim center, with focus on the tuna fishing. But here was also a mill and a destillery for citrus. Here was also lodging for the fishermen and seasonal workers as well as a shipyard. In the old gentry building, you are surrounde by the sea on three sides. La Tonnara plays an important role in the history of Avola.
Here is already a planning permit in place to convert into a luxury hotel with 200 beds, but it is also possible to create a very intriguing and impressive private accommodation, secluded from the public with surrounding walls and all conveniances, including pool area and mooring, within the premises. You have good beaches all around the property, and a multitude of good restaurants and bars in the immediate neighborhood.
It is located just at the outskirts of Avola, with walking distance to the town center. The neighborhood is very nice just as it is, but the area is also right now being refurbished and will become even more inviting, still with its charm intact. In the area around Avola, you find many interesting UNESCO world heritage sites, such as the famous baroque town of Noto, the amazing nature in Cava Grande and the Necropolis of Pantalica. The entire area or Avola and Noto is famous for its nice, sandy beaches with crystal clear water and long-streching orchards and vineyards. And for the extrordinary seafood and locally produced wine.
From Avola to the airport of Catania is less than an hour.
