Villa Vendicari

Add to my favourites

With the glittering sea in sight and a pool in the Mediterranean garden Villa Vendicari is located in the nature reserve Vendicari in south-eastern Sicily. The building looks like it has been shaped by the wind, and with its organic form it blends in well with the original landscape.

Atelier Palermo

Add to my favourites

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.

Casa Kera

Add to my favourites

Situated on a hill near the baroque town of Scicli, surrounded by carob trees and nature, Casa Kera looks out over the gently rolling hills to the blue shimmering south coast of the island. A house that naturally places itself in the middle of the Sicilian landscape.

Casa Balate

Add to my favourites

Staged reduction: Situated in the heart of the Val di Noto on a spur of the Monti Iblei, Casa Balate artfully directs the eye and highlights the minimalist architecture and the Mediterranean backdrop of olive, almond and carrubo trees with atmosphere and striking effect.

La Melagrana

Add to my favourites

From a distance, it seems like a wooden box is floating on a hill overlooking the archaic Sicilian countryside. La melagrana located near the town of Noto is pitched on concrete beams and offers a view of the sea shimmering in the distance.

Casa del Forte

Add to my favourites

Casa del Forte is located in an old fisherman's house in Ortigia, the old town of Syracuse. Just a few minutes walk from the city beach and at the same time in the middle of the bustling old town streets with its ancient sites.

Villa La Pergola

Add to my favourites

The earth quakes. Every ten minutes the volcano blasts red fire into the air. And at the foot of the black island, the white Villa la Pergola, nestled between palm trees, prickly pear cacti and pink bougainvilleas, gazes out across the sea.

Casa Sabir

Add to my favourites

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.
