6 Bed Villa Platani in Cianciana (Agrigento) Sicily Italy
Villa Platani is a unique standalone Villa built Circa. 1760, which has been recently brought back to life, after it had been abandoned for over 30 years, amazingly this oasis is a 5 minute stroll from shops, bars, restaurants and all local amenities, lots of attractions within a 45 minute drive as well as pro golf course.
This grand Villa enjoys total and utter privacy, there is a disused convent overlooking the car park and more importantly there will never be any form of structure built near the property or overlooking it, as the villa is in the historical part of the town and surrounding land cannot be developed.
Cianciana has become a second home and leisure destination for several international celebrities with some already investing in the area. They have been able to see that even with the growth occurring in this area, the true Sicilian lifestyle that they want to enjoy is still strong here and will not be spoilt by the new growth.
Many people are looking for the freedom to enjoy the local lifestyle without any intrusion, chaos and stress that they have experienced in the established hot spots on the island, and they see that in Cianciana everyone is able to enjoy everything that Sicily has to offer and be part of the local community like everybody else.
