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. Irregular, curved walls and rounded corners give the rooms a cave-like atmosphere. Due to the skylights and windows (they are positioned in a way that they catch the wind) the inside of the house is bright and pleasant. The open living, dining and kitchen area in the central part of the building opens with a large window to the sea towards the southeast. The three bedrooms and bathrooms are located in the adjoining part of the building. Another second building, which can be rented separately, has a living area with a kitchenette as well as a bedroom and bathroom. The communicative heart of the villa is the pergola, which runs the entire length of the ensemble. From here, a small path leads to the pool area with tree house, which is somewhat off the beaten track. From the accessible roof, the view stretches far across the nature reserve to the Mediterranean Sea.
