Larix Lodge

The Larix Lodge in the village of La Villa (Stern) in Alta Badia is modern, yet rooted in tradition. The wooden façade, loggia and gable roof relate to the characteristic features of the region’s buildings, but at the same time the building has an independent, contemporary character. Each of the three holiday flats opens up to the southwest with large window fronts and its own outdoor space facing the mountain panorama.

Region/Town: IT – Italy, South Tyrol, La Villa

Scenery: In the village surrounded by meadows

Casa Salvati

Casa Salvati is part of an ensemble of three holiday homes built by the architects Alberto Salvati and Ambrogio Tresoldi in 1972 on a hill on the western shore of Lake Garda. An important element of Salvati and Tresoldi’s work was the use of colour. Thus, the white cube welcomes visitors with a bright yellow staircase. At the back, a cube-shaped blue balcony boldly protrudes from the façade.

Villa Mayr

Villa Mayr in Vahrn near Brixen, South Tyrol is a house steeped in history. The building, which is more than 400 years old, used to be the summer residence of the Hotel Elephant in Brixen and was converted into a boarding house in 1878. One of the most famous guests was the composer Gustav Mahler, who is today commemorated by a suite bearing his name. The architecture and design firm bergmeisterwolf has transferred the building into the present and created a symbiosis of old and new.

Umamma

In the Umamma apartment in the small Tuscan town of San Miniato, the Middle Ages are combined with industrial style. The apartment is extraordinary and will elicit a “Wow!” from many guests—or “umamma” as they say in Tuscany for something very amazing. It took seven years to restore and transform the rooms located on the first floor of an old 16th century palazzo. The original structure of the interiors was reconstructed and the historical materials were exposed. The back of the building was opened up, and large windows were added to frame the views over the Arno Valley. The 230 sqm flat is unusually generous in size but the truly unexpected space is hidden in the vaulted basement…

Atelier Palermo

Palermo is a city of contrasts, where baroque splendor meets morbid charm and a lively atmosphere. In the capital of Sicily, Stefan Koppelkamm—graphic designer, photographer, author and university lecturer—has fulfilled his dream of having his own atelier in a baroque palazzo. During the time he is not using the studio, it can be rented.

Freiform

Below the village of Verdings, architect Martin Gruber has planned an organic free form next to his own farmstead, which will be rented out as an extraordinary guest house. Like a nature observatory in the midst of the South Tyrolean mountains, the contemporary glass pavilion affords a captivating view across the valley. The design absorbs the topography of its immediate surroundings with its glass envelope and blurs the boundaries between nature and building.

Scenery: Nestled in nature on the estate of an organic farm

Castellaccio Suite

The Castellaccio Suite is a hideaway for two with a fantastic view over the Umbrian hills, all the way to Lake Trasimeno. It is situated at 600 metres above sea level near the village of Piegaro on the border with Tuscany. Cocooning was the keyword for the property’s Belgian owners when they began planning the house: they wanted to create a retreat for two people that would be truly surrounded by nature.

Scenery: Hill top, with a fantastic view all the way to Lake Trasimeno

Casa Sabir

Outside: a lively hustle and bustle. Inside: peace and quiet and the grandeur of bygone eras. Casa Sabir is located on the market square of the small island of Ortigia – the historic centre of the Sicilian city of Syracuse. The 85m2 apartment on the first floor of the house, built at the beginning of the 20th century, boasts a great deal of historical flair. High vaulted ceilings, old cement tiles and walls, which display the traces of the original plastering in different colours, characterise its ambience.

Eremo

Holiday home Eremo is perched on a hill above the northern Italian harbour town of Imperia. Situated, as though on a viewing platform, on the edge of a centuries-old pine forest, the house offers an impressive panoramic view over the city and the Ligurian sea. The historic Hermitage – once a religious retreat – has been transformed into a holiday home for two.

Region/Town: IT – Italy, Liguria, Imperia

Scenery: In a breathtaking panoramic position in the hilly landscape with an almost 360°-view on the gulf
