Considering the seemingly inescapable madness in the world these days, it's tough not to long for a quiet and peaceful respite from it all whenever everything becomes just too much. And, sure, a floating mini house fits that bill, but if you're itching for something slightly more private, beautiful, and beach-y you may want to consider this idyllic and isolated island off the coast of Italy, which is now for sale for much cheaper than you'd expect.
The uninhabited parcel of land known as Isola delle Femmine or "island of women" sits roughly 300 yards off Sicily and is nestled in a protected marine area that's become a hugely popular spot for scuba divers and snorkelers. Even better, the price has just been slashed to the relatively low $1.1 million, which may still seem pretty steep, but hey, it's an entire private freaking island. Get a few friends to chip in, and you could potentially set up one hell of a time share situation.
