Once upon a time... "Villaggio Placido", thus begins the story of the "Villaggio Placido" in the last years of the 19th century, the entire bay of Mazzarò was owned by an aristocratic Lady from Taormina.

The land surrounding the bay was cultivated with vineyards, the wine that was produced, being on the sea, was precious and at night the buyers came from Catania, with the typical Sicilian carts, and loaded to then ship it to the various countries of northern Italy.

At sea the fishermen tried to fish with their boats but they didn’t have a place to rest, the noblewoman has allowed them to build accommodation in that land near the sea.

This meant that the fishermen built small and very simple and poor "fishermen" houses.

Sometimes they spent the night there, mending the nets and preparing a simple and thrifty meal.

" Over the years Placido inherited this land and in 1970 he transformed the humble fishermen's houses into" Sicilian "style villas, thus the" Villaggio Placido "was born" "


The Lady was happy.

Over the years Placido inherited this land and in 1970 he transformed the humble fishermen's houses into “Sicilian” style villas, then the “Villaggio Placido” was born.

In 1970, tourists were enchanted by so much beauty and simplicity that these houses and the enchanting view of the Mazzarò bay showed.

Not much has changed since then, the houses are in the same positions and with the imagination they bring you back to the old fishermen. The view of the sea, the simplicity and uniqueness of the environments and the scents enchant you, as in a dream they make you go back in time to the times of the noblewoman.
