About the property

Apartment furnished with a double bedroom, a twin bedroom, a large bathroom, laundry room, large kitchen / living room, two independent entrances, and a small veranda, include sheets, tablecloths, kitchen set, Wifi connection , conditioned air;

Characteristic of the place are the reefs, vortexes generated by the current of the Strait of Messina, which in the past centuries animated the legend of Cariddi, a nymph from the insatiable voracity, that by stoning oxen to his son Eracle, was transformed by Zeus into a monster Three times a day, it swept and regurgitated the waters of the Strait, swirling all that was above or below the surface of the sea (sailors included). Ganzirri and Faro Lakes are today two small ecosystems characterized by high levels of biodiversity and primary productivity, making them suitable for the exploitation of biological resources, and especially for mollusc farming, which has been practiced for centuries in both lakes. The area between Ganzirri and Punta Faro remains to date one of the most interesting lagoon systems in Italy from a scientific point of view and is protected by a natural and landscape constraint.

Capo Peloro, or Faro Tower, looks like a thin strip of land in the middle of the sea, the huge construction shown here is called "pylon".

Torre Faro seen from the Pylon: on the left the Lake of Ganzirri (or Pantano Grande) and on the right the Lake of Faro (or Pantano Piccolo)

These are technically brackish coastal ponds which, because of their communication with the sea, represent a transition environment with a dynamic balance with the marine environment; Are home to specialized florists of brackish humid environments and used as migratory bird stops. Lake Faro, for its particular shape, is also a rare example of meromite basin, studied and conducted by international specialists.
