About
Description
Villa Rica is an ideal place to spend a pleasant holiday in Sicily, in contact with nature and away from the city noise. You will find yourself in a peaceful oasis among secular olive, orange and fruit More groves, a typical Mediterranean scenario. Seven km ahead of you the sea and the Eolian Island will render magic and unforgettable this corner of Sicily. Less
