How I love coming to Scicli! Turning through its streets it seems to be in a movie set, with its narrow streets paved with bricks, the ecru-colored houses that run along the streets in a succession of high and low volumes, punctuated by windows with different openings, and by the exits from which comes darkness and internal coolness.
The jars alternate with small green oases of prickly pears or small palms, while the balconies with iron railings laden with fragrant flowers overlook the passers-by curiously.
In this true paradise today we take you to the historic center, between “L ‘osteria al ponte” and the splendid “Hotel Novecento” and we will take you to an authentic jewel where history and modern architecture blend perfectly.
A small corner building with the old stables for the horses that the skilful hand of the local workers has transformed into welcoming residences and the three different entrances lead us into equally different types of apartments.
On the main façade, the large arched door, which once gave access to the stables, leads us to the first apartment. On the ground floor, an open-space living area with a wall of ancient exposed stones, houses the living room, kitchen and bathroom cheerfully clad in white and blue to recall the colors of the sea. We look up at the roof, we immediately notice the iron railing that borders the mezzanine. We reach it by climbing the open staircase and we are greeted by a large bedroom with a wonderful floor made of wooden planks.
Now let’s visit the second apartment, which is accessed from the second door. This is the smallest of the three houses, a classic two-room apartment with living room, kitchenette, double bedroom and bathroom with shower, all lit by greenery.
Let’s move now to the side of the building, two ancient stone steps, a small door and here we are beyond the threshold of the third and largest of the apartments.
A single flight of steps, with gritty steps and bordered on one side by a spectacular stone wall, leads to the first floor. We are welcomed by a modern and well-kept environment where every detail is studied in aesthetics and livability. The living area with kitchen block, table and two large armchairs and the master bedroom with private bathroom in romantic shades of red. The room overlooks a small balcony where you can see the beauties of the center.
Now we reach the second and last floor, a real suite with exposed roof, double bedroom, living room / wardrobe, private bathroom and panoramic terrace.
Large modular spaces, with the possibility at any time and with absolute simplicity, to combine all or part of the apartments obtaining larger and different housing solutions depending on the projects and needs, in order to be a single house or for several families, one space for holidays or throughout the year or an excellent solution to make income.
