Perched above the ocean, with stunning views to the Eolie Islands, is the 400-year-old Tower of Marmora. The estate is named after the tower, erected as part of a fortification program ordered by Charles V during the Spanish domination of Sicily. Today, the Tower of Marmora offers its guests a quiet and relaxing holiday in harmony with nature and the sea, amidst the flavours, perfumes and traditions that only Sicily can offer.
The Apartments
The villas of the Tower of Marmora are named after the islands of Eolie - Lipari, Vulcano, Stromboli and Panarea.
Each villa contains 2 apartments to sleep 2-3 pax:
Living area with kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, terrace.
Each apartment has a private car park.
The Tower
The Tower of Marmora is a surveillance tower built in the late 1500s, as part of Charles V’s fortification of Sicily. Tensions in the Mediterranean, due to escalating raids and piracy by the Turks, convinced the Spanish monarch to reinforce the military defence in Sicily to obstruct any enemy activities. The tower was constructed on the eve of Sicily’s revolt against Spain, in the marvellous terrain that has forever been defined as ‘’the crossroads of the greatest ancient civilisations.’’

The ideal place for a tranquil and relaxing break, where the pace of life slows to a Mediterranean serenity.
