You could own THIS private island for just $1.5 million!

This beautiful island located just off the coast of Sicily is for sale by the Italian family who owns it, and the price has just dropped to €1 million (CAD $1.5 million)! That’s comparable to some houses and condos in Montreal… But you’ll get a LOT more space, and privacy!

The original price was much higher – €3.5 million – but the owners are now saying they’re open to negotiation.

Isola delle Femmine, or “The Isle of Women,” is small and currently uninhabited. The island is just 275 metres away from the coastal town of the same name. With Palermo just a short distance away, it’s isolated, yet close enough to society to fulfill your basic needs.

The strange name – “isle of women” – has uncertain origins. Some say the island was home to a women’s prison in the 16th century, though that is unverified. It seems more likely that the island was used to quarantine women and children during an epidemic sometime in the 19th century.

In any case, it’s clear that the island would be a huge undertaking for anyone wanting to live there. It currently only has an old, crumbling 17th-century tower, and of course, no electricity or running water.
