Casa Alba Sicily

Sciacca, Sicily, Italy
Overlooking Sicily's Southwest Shore and the Mediterranean Beyond

A variety of contrasts greet you at Casa Alba, built into a rugged hillside on the island of Sicily adjacent to a nature preserve. There’s the home’s black and white exterior; its interior décor vibe that’s one part contemporary industrial, one part breezy seaside villa; and the villa’s distinctive blue-on-blue views occupying the horizon, where the inviting infinity pool meets the Mediterranean. 

Set in an arid landscape on Sicily’s southwest shore and fragrant with the surrounding rosemary and wild fennel shrubbery, this villa for rent in Italy offers low-key, family styled living and abundant options for outdoor lounging. An open-air, multi-leveled floor plan features operable, floor-to-ceiling glass doors in the great room, opening out to a landscaped yard with terraces situated both at ground level and on high, overlooking the jagged shoreline below.

The black and beige exterior walls of Casa Alba pop against the arid, cactus-dotted, pebbled hillside lot the home is set on. Located outside the village of Sciacca on Sicily’s ancient coastal trade route, the home climbs a rugged, rose-toned slope dotted with thick palms and magnolia. It’s surrounded on multiple levels by terraces for al fresco living and dining, and the Mediterranean stretches for miles beyond the ample terrace spaces, creating picture perfect views, especially from the uniquely colorful blue and yellow tiled terrace.

Entering the home through a lava stone-built vaulted foyer, you’re met with a large, contemporary kitchen and family room area showcasing high, open-beam ceilings and a trio of double-width picture windows that open out to sublime shoreline views and wide, fanning palms. 

Wood floors give the space sheen and polish, and an inventive, glass bridge-like room occupying the home’s center gives the interior plenty of the island’s famed sunshine. Furnishings are easygoing and low key, perfect for families. Two bedrooms are built creatively into the home site and occupy a slightly different level than the generous common room, revealing the home’s unique, multi-elevation floor plan built right up the rocky hillside. A rectangular infinity pool gleams from nearly every wide window, and bathrooms feature tile mosaics in vivid shades of coastal blues.


AROUND

Located in the western part of Sicily, this villa for rent in Italy is a quick three kilometers from the fishing village of Sciacca, in a part of the island known for its coral beds and its local ceramic tile tradition. Beaches are also a quick three kilometers’ drive from the villa. More distant drives will land you at Zingaro Nature Reserve with its famed caves and crystalline waters, or at renowned archeological sites such as the Valley of the Temples.

Known as one of Europe’s most exotic destinations, Sicily sits off the toe of Italy’s boot and is envied for its sundrenched villages and rugged shores. It's a sizeable island with diverse geography, and this villa is located in the southwestern part of the island, an hour and a half by car from Sicily’s biggest city, Palermo.

The village closest to the home, Sciacca, stumbles topsy-turvy down a hillside to the sea, and has been a seafaring capital for millennia, inhabited by the Greeks, Romans, and the Moors, who established lucrative trade routes between the island and Northern Africa. Sciacca’s backdrop is the dramatic, extinct volcano, Mt. Kronio, which still emits thermal vapors, making Sciacca and its environs an optimal spot to discover hot springs and spas, in addition to enjoying the simple charms of a sun-kissed, Mediterranean vacation.
