A modern villa with a beautiful garden and lawn of near the sea

The center of Brucoli is 2 km far from the house, and offers all the amenities: restaurants and pizzerias with typical local dishes such as pasta with sea urchins. Here you can rent a boat in the famous yacht Jonio Yachting club to enjoy the scenery or do some dive directly into the transparent blue of this beautiful sea. On request we organize fishing tuna.

The story of Brucoli: It is a fishing village in the province of Syracuse. The village of Brucoli is situated about 5 km from Augusta with a channel That complements for much of the ITS length and is born as a fishing village. On the walls, along the Channel, there are Numerous caves, typical dwellings of the Neolithic age. West of the Channal opens a vast area, the '' Gisira '' WHERE IS OUR VILLA SITUATED, a large Gisira calcareous tableland slopes down towards the sea, where the extreme north lie the remains of a Neolithic village. In the midst of this landscape is the village with the glistening sea, the sky cobalt, the port-channel and drowed by age castle That the Sun of summer noon, with prodigious Alchemist's magic, Becomes a fantastic ancient Golden Manor. According to Thucydides recounts in His Peloponnesian War (VI .4), here came the first Greeks from Megara, led by the oikistes Lamis, who on the banks of the river Pantakyas founded a village, to Which he Gave the name of Tròtylon. From this first landing, and from there headed to Lentini expelled from Chalcis founded before Thapsos and Megara Hyblaea. On the plateau of Gisira there is an oasis of greenery, stands the sanctuary of the Madonna of Adonai, with the adjoining monastery, built on a natural Grotto, Already use Greek, on Whose back wall you can see a figure of the Madonna with child Which Jesus, according to Functional tradition, was painted in the 4th century by the Bishop of Lipari Agathon, Took refuge here to escape persecution. The river Porcaria, the ancient Pantakyas, before reaching the contrada 'Bay', Asilah, Arcila in a loop from the walls of the cavity presents high bronze age graves, all along the Ridge called Maccaudo Valley. In past centuries it Seems That the River was navigable for a long is inland, and was used for the transport of goods from the coast inland. Brucoli With Its port-channel was annexed in the fifteenth century into the House of Queens Aragoneses. The Governor John Cabastida, by order of Queen Giovanna, in 1467, he built the Castle guarding the warehouse and Emporium where she loaded cargo. Brucoli loader (I know they were called the ports from Which it departed and arrived goods) in Aragoneses age was very important for His work and was merged at the royal property. In a wing of the castle was used as a small church, the first in the country, and on the South-western tower were built two pillars like a bell. Always inside the castle there was a room used as a burial place. The 19th-century parish church with the ship, built on several occasions, is dedicated to Saint Nicholas, patron saint of mariners and patron of the country. According to a local tradition, sailors of a ship called in the middle of the storm and found refuge in Brucoli. As a sign of gratitude brought` the Church under construction the painting depicting St. Nicholas enthroned, today Became the altarpiece of the high altar. The Church Suffered severe damage as a result of the earthquake of December 13, 1990 Secured and re-opened on May 25, 1997 was restored and reopened for worship on December 18, 2005 Of great value is the 19th-century wooden statue of St. Nicholas, Which is preserved at the high altar, behind the picture depicting the Saint. For quantity of goods exported, Brucoli Often exceeded the port of Augusta. Today the port-channel, Porcaria, mouth is navigable for about one hundred meters from the mouth by small tonnage vessels since the bottom, over the years, Has Gone increasingly rising. With appropriate interventions could be cleared and dredged to make it cutting easier to pleasure boats or fishing. Deeper than a few dozen yards inside the channel, you can still see the bridge on the River, used by the old women of the town as a washtub. On the last Sunday of July there is the feast of the patron St. Nicholas. Every second year we celebrated with a long procession of boats on the sea. Offshore, the boat carrying the statue of the Patron Saint is thrown overboard a laurel wreath in memory of the fallen of the sea. On December 6, the day of the liturgical feast of Saint Nicholas, the Patron Saint is remembered with a solemn celebration. Every August 5, by several centuries, from the parish church Began to pilgrimage, crossing the river and follow the ancient road leading to the district Gisira, Reaches the sanctuary of the Madonna of Adonai, in Which mass is Celebrated. The Sunday That follows the March 19, in Piazza San Nicola is the characteristic 'Auction of Saint Joseph', in Which they sell the gifts That bring families to the patron saint of Providence, including a local pizza feature called 'Cudduruni'.

Incredible stay, really worth seeing that place

  • 5 of 5

It was an incredible stay, our children has fully enjoyed this big house with its green and terraces with amazing sea and volcano view. The villa has everything you only need, its new and completely equipped. The pizzeria and professional swimming pool are just next door to the house, they were very high quality. It is very important that the beaches are all free, and we didn't pay a euro to enjoy the crystalline sea of Sicily. Brucoli itself is a very panoramic and characteristic place, there are many good restaurants, excursions shops and even en boat rental club. Very good point to visit Syracuse, Marzamemi Noto and many another places. Thank you indeed to the owners for being very helpful and friendly with us !

Brucoli is a fishing village, a hamlet of the town of Augusta, in the province of Syracuse. The town of Brucoli located about 5 miles from Augusta with a canal that joined him for much of its length and is born as a fishing village. On the walls, along the canal, you can see numerous caves, typical houses of the Neolithic age. To the west of the canal opens a wide area, the 'Gisira', a large limestone tableland sloping towards the sea, where the extreme north are the traces of a Neolithic village. In the midst of this landscape is the village with the houses being white assembrate the sea, cobalt sky, the port-channel and the castle patina of age that the sun of summer afternoons, with prodigious magic alchemist, transformed into a fantastic ancient manor gold. According to the account of Thucydides in his Peloponnesian War (VI, 4), and here came the first Greeks from Megara, headed by the ecista Lamis, who on the river bank Pantakyas founded a village, to which he gave the name of Tròtylon. From this first landing, they headed to Lentini and from there driven from Chalcis, founded before Thapsos and then Megara Hyblaea.

On the plateau of Gisira in a green oasis, the Sanctuary of the Madonna dell'Adonai, with the adjoining chapel, built on a natural cave, already use greek, on whose back wall you can see a figure of the Madonna with Child Jesus, who, according to tradition, was painted in the fourth century by the Bishop of Lipari Agathon, who took refuge here to escape persecution. The stream Porcaria, the ancient Pantakyas before coming to the district 'Arcile Bay', in a bend of the cavity has high walls of tombs of the Bronze Age, along the ridge called Vallone Maccaudo. In centuries past, it seems that the river was navigable for a long stretch inland, and was used for the transport of goods from the coast to the interior.

Brucoli with its port-channel was aggregated in the fifteenth century the House of Queens Aragonese. Gov. John Cabastida, by order of Queen Giovanna, in 1467 he built the castle guarding the emporium and warehouses where the goods were loaded. The charger Brucoli (as they were called ports whence he came and to which the goods) in the Aragonese period was very important for his business and was incorporated in the royal demesne. In a wing of the castle was used as a small church, the first in the country, and on the south-western tower were built on two pillars mo 'bell tower. Also inside the castle there was a room used as a burial place. The nineteenth-century parish church with a single nave, built on several occasions, is dedicated to St Nicholas of Bari, patron and protector of sailors in the country. According to a local tradition, the sailors of a ship they called the Holy One in the midst of the storm and found shelter in the channel Brucoli. As a sign of gratitude brought into the church building in the painting of St. Nicholas on the throne, now become altar piece. The church was badly damaged by the earthquake of 13 December 1990 Put in security and reopened May 25, 1997, it was restored and reopened for worship on December 18 2005 Of great value is the nineteenth-century wooden statue of St. Nicola, which is kept on the high altar, behind the painting of the Holy One. For quantities of exported goods, Brucoli, often even surpassed the port of Augusta. Today, the port-channel, the mouth of the Porcaria, is navigable for a hundred yards from the mouth to the small tonnage of vessels as the backdrop, over the years, went getting more and more. With appropriate interventions could be cleaned up and dredged to make it easier to pleasure craft or fishing. Entering a few tens of meters in the channel, it is still possible to see the bridge over the river, which is used by the old women of the village as a wash. The last Sunday of July is the festival of the patron Saint Nicholas. Every second year is celebrated with a long procession of boats on the sea. Out to sea, the boat that carries the statue of the patron saint is thrown into the sea a laurel wreath in memory of the fallen of the sea. On December 6, the day of the liturgical feast of St. Nicholas, the patron saint is remembered with the celebration of a solemn mass. Every 5th of August, for several centuries, the church began a pilgrimage that, crossing the river and following the ancient road leading to the district Gisira, arrives at the Shrine of Our Lady dell'Adonai, where Mass is celebrated.
