A Study of 1970's & 80's Style

Pairing modern architectural lines and breathtaking natural scenery, this beach house rental in Sicily by architect Armando Barraja was designed to cut off the chaotic world and instead, refocus inward and out to sea.

The strong composition and architectural vision invokes classic modernism, drawing inspiration from Lloyd Wright, Alvar Alto and Venetian, Carlo Scarpa, with subtle nautical design features like portholes and balustrade railings, that suggests a ship at sea. From the smallest constructive detail up to the proportional rhythms of the modular units, this villa recalls the love for Euclidian geometry.

Built in the 1980’s as a family holiday home, the house is now in the capable hands of the second generation. In addition to being an architect, Barraja was a keen interior designer, founding an import company in the 1970s. A small collection of rare modernist pieces remain from the era including Panton, Breuer, Sapper, a divider by Franco Albini, chairs by Werner Panton and Marcel Breuer, a marble table by Dino Gavina, and lounge chairs belonging to the family since the 1920’s. 

A unique era in modern design, this island getaway preserves Barraja’s visionary architectural heritage for the next generation.

Description

Set on a low bluff just steps from the a private cove, this beach house rental in Sicily is architect Armando Barraja’s vision of classic modernist design and carefree holiday fun. 

Entering through the upper level courtyard, you step down into a central living and dining room with a fireplace and a glass facade overlooking breathtaking views of the sea, Cape Zafferano and out across to the Aeolian Islands. The main concave terrace stretches along the house and the horizon with sheltered shade for lounging, dining and taking in the amazing views.  

Adjacent to the main living areas are a fully equipped galley-style kitchen, and three double bedrooms

From the terrace on either side, bridges lead to the back of the house with exterior staircases descending to the two lower floors, each with a bedroom and bathroom. 

Downstairs, the second convex shaped terrace is the spot to soak up the sun or wander down to garden stairs to the rock platforms below, just above the water’s edge.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Wifi throughout, cable TV, kitchen and bath essentials, laundry facilities, private on site parking, wheelchair accessible. 

AROUND

Less than an hour east of Palermo on Cape Zafferano, the town of Bagheria is known as “the town of villas,” with it’s popularity among the aristocracy and as a seaside vacation spot beginning in the 17th century. A charming and historic town, the Corso Umberto is the main promenade lined with shops and cafes with echoes of the Renaissance all around.

Surrounded by olive and orange groves, the area is also characterized by the nearby Sicilian maritime towns of Santa Flavia and Sant’Elia-Porticello. 

Further east along the Tyrrhenian Coast, the popular seaside resort town of Cefalù includes two of the island’s best north shore beaches, Mazzaforno and Settefrati. A UNESCO designated town and historic fishing harbor, the pretty medieval streets are dominated by a 12th century Norman cathedral and an ancient hilltop fortress and is known for its excellent restaurants that serve local seafood and wines and its many interesting shops. The rugged Madonie Mountains National Park are just over an hour drive inland with great hiking and forest trails and several medieval villages to explore.

Sicily’s capital city is a chaotic slightly unpredictable place with several cultural and social influences. Placed perfectly in the heart of the old city, you’re at the ideal jumping off point to explore and are just a few minutes walk from either side of Piazza San Domenico and the city’s main street, Via Roma.

A fascinating mix of Roman, Arabian, Baroque and Norman influences, the city is a melting pot of style and culture. The Vucciria, Ballarò and del Capo street markets are a must, as is the harbor and Foro Italico waterfront with it’s glittering yachts.

Lined with small beaches in along the Gulf of Mondello, the coastline also includes some of the best on the island including Mondello which is the largest and closest to the city center. Parking is limited and very restrictive in the old town but you’ll want to take your time and stroll.

    Vi hade en fantastisk vecka när vi bodde i Villan som Giacomo äger. Helt privat, fantastisk utsikt och en väldigt genuin liten stad Flavia alldeles i närheten. Egna klippor att bada ifrån och fin snorkling. Det finns en strand lite längre bort då klipporna inte är barnvänliga.

    Ich habe 2018 den ganzen Monat Juli in der Villa am Capo Zafferano verbringen dürfen und dort mit Familie und Freunden einen wunderschönen und entspannten Urlaub genossen.

    Capo Zafferano liegt ca. 12 km von Palermo entfernt. Das Haus erreicht man am besten mit dem Auto, öffentlichen Verkehr gibt es nicht. Innerhalb von 40min gelangt man mit dem Auto in Palermos Zentrum, mit dem Zug sind es ab dem Bahnhof von Bagheria (10min Autofahrt ab Haus) sind es ungefähr 15 Minuten.
    Das Kap wird von Ferienhäusern dominiert, Hotels gibt es kaum. Dementsprechend sind auch die angrenzenden Orte Aspra und Sant’ Elia wenig touristisch und glücklicherweise noch sehr authentisch. Italianità lässt sich hier mit all ihren Facetten erleben.

    Die Villa liegt zusammen mit zwei anderen Häusern der Familie Barraja auf einem wunderschönen weitläufigen Grundstück an der Steilküste mit direktem Meerzugang über eine kleine private Badestelle. Die Felsküste wird von der imposanten Erhebung des Caps Zafferano dominiert, dessen Begehung (ca. 30min bergauf) lohnenswert ist. Der Garten ist sehr gepflegt, es gibt unzählige Plätze mit oder ohne Schatten zum Verweilen und das Leben spielt sich primär draussen ab. Der Ort ist magisch, allgegenwärtig ist das Meer – man verbringt die meiste Zeit mit seiner Betrachtung. Das permanente Rauschen der Brandung hat mir nach meiner Rückkehr noch lange gefehlt.

    Das Haus ist sehr schön in die Landschaft eingepasst und besticht durch seine sorgfältig gestalteten Aussenräume und die Inszenierung der Blicke. Die reduzierte Architektur hat uns gut gefallen, zudem überzeugte die ausgezeichnete natürliche Lüftung des Hauses. Die Ausstattung des Hauses ist – anders als es von den stylischen Photos her zu erwarten ist – eher zwanglos, was im Nebeneinander von sehr schönen Designklassikern und herkömmlichen Gebrauchsmöbeln begründet ist. Es lässt sich deshalb sehr gut Bespielen und bietet ohne Probleme bis zu 9 Personen Platz. Die 5 Schlaf- und 4 Badezimmer sind allerdings nicht alle gleichwertig und weisen aufgrund ihrer Lage und Ausstattung unterschiedliche Qualitäten auf. Allerdings sind die Aufenthaltsräume dafür umso spektakulärer.

    Das Anwesen ist eigentlich so schön, dass man es gar nicht verlassen möchte. Wir haben uns in diesem Monat deshalb primär selbst versorgt und sind letztendlich wenig auswärts essen gegangen. Der tolle Fischmarkt in Aspra, der Gemüsehändler und Supermarkt in Sant’ Elia und die unzähligen Strassenhändler bieten so viele Anreize, die Küche zu benutzen oder einfach den Grill im Garten einzuheizen. Zudem lässt sich diese exklusive Lage einfach nicht toppen, so dass wir die meisten Abende auf der Terrasse gelandet sind.

    Äussert dankbar bin ich für die grosse Gastfreundschaft und Unterstützung, die wir von der Eigentümerfamilie Barraja, aber auch vom Nachbarn Rosario, der sich um Haus und Garten kümmert, erfahren haben: Sie haben sich äusserst viel Zeit genommen, uns mit Hintergrundinformationen und vielen Tipps versorgt, so dass wir einen wunderschönen, individuellen und sehr eindrücklichen Urlaub erleben durften. Wir kommen gerne zurück.
    Mille grazie!

    When you happen to arrive at Villa Capo Zafferano you already by the gate know that an architect with an extraordinary imaginary sensibility has been at work. When slowly bringing your car to the end of the narrow spiral driveway from the street to the villa, you find a smaller but similar spiral staircase leading up to a plastered pass running all the way to the end of the land behind the house. Surrounded by all kind of Mediterranean bushes and trees one get the immediate feeling that it was the architect’s earnest purpose to cut off a chaotic world when you finally arrive at Villa Capo Zafferano.

    Met by Giacomo Barraja – the son of the Architect of Villa Capo Zafferano Armando Barraja – you soon get to know that you have arrived in a place with a soul and that Giacomo with a passion has set out to conserve his father’s visionary architectural heritage for yet another generation!

    Entering the house through the walled courtyards ending up in the living room you immediately are confronted with the scenery through the big living room window in which the horizon of an immensely blue Tyrrhenian Sea and a raising Capo Zafferano ultimately draw you to the concave balcony. A balcony that stretch parallel along the horizon and right at the point where the midday sun in zenith offer the dweller a cooling shadow for the rest of the day. The concave shape of the balcony seems to be swivelling even the weakest ocean breeze smoothly around ones body and a thought immediately come to mind that you are embraced in the arms of nature – as if captured by the arms of a giant octopus – and never will be released from this place again.

    Giacomo explains that the lower level terrace – throwing a convex bow to the ocean – is thought for sunbathers and the upper terrace for shadow lovers… of which his father as a Sicilian belongs to the last simpatico category. You surely know by experience what precautions you will have to take having stayed in the house for a week! The amount of sun protection creams needed for the convex terrace is immense – although the month of May 2019 was the coolest in Sicily for decades – and the concave balcony is a needed escape into a safe cave of shadow… Grilled by the sun un the lower deck for an hour your mind is in gratitude to the architect Mr. Barraja and his shadowy balcony.

    Strolling down to the private sea bath below the house is all in itself a sensational journey awakening all your senses! Tracking between Agaves, Pine trees and a myriad of flowers releasing their sweet scent into the salty humid breeze of vapour from the breaking waves on the cliffs below… you are immersed in a primordial natural world as Sicily must have been looking when the Phoenicians set their foot on Sicilian earth.
    Arrived at the cliffs and the breaking waves it suddenly becomes obvious that the cliffs churning up of the waves making floating islands of a delicate white foam must have been that foam from which Venus was born…non the less a Botticelli comes to mind.
    Well, the clear salty water will spellbound any swimmer and fearless diver even on a cold but clear afternoon in May. In the horizon the Aeolian Islands with Alicudi at the closest, then Filicudi, Salina and finally Lipari are disappearing in a bluish vapour.

    Looking up to the villa from the seaside below you certainly become aware of the architectural vision – that of classic modernism. A modernism that might be drawing its inspiration from the likes of a Frank Lloyd Wright, Alvar Alto and eventually a breath of Carlo Scarpa. But Mr Giacomo Barraja is not to put into a referential modernist pattern; his architectural vocabulary is visible down to the smallest constructive detail and up to the proportional rhythms of modular units from floor to wall and light openings… inside and outside. In this villa you recall the love for Euclidian geometry and that repeating pattern of the Arabian world blended by the light and shadow in spaces of the normannic purists … a sigh of Sicilian history?
    At a second glance on the villa the two sidewards’ bridges suddenly reminds us of the good old ocean liners that might have inspired Gropius or Rietveld with their iron fenced balconies. The one side pointing at the Capo and the other pointing unobstructed towards eternity! Well we can’t get closer to the ocean and the view into eternity…. the architect truly sends us on a journey.
    We think this architectural work by Mr. Barraja is worth much more respect and attention beyond the horizon of the Tyrrhenian Sea!

    For a Designer at a certain age the small collection of modernist furniture inhabiting the interior of the house – approximately from the same time as the house was build – must be a pleasing déjà vu for any connoisseur of modern design although the salty wind has taken its toll on some of the objects. But never the less it hasn’t obstructed this pleasant feeling of meeting good old friends…such as Panton – Breuer – Sapper – and even a couple of Danese vases eventually designed by Enzo Mari. But what might be much more interesting the wooden chaise longue belonging to the Barraja family since the 1920ies is definitely an amazing object of unknown origin apart from the inspirational influence of a Charlotte Perriand’s aesthetic vocabulary.
    No, the Villa Capo Zafferano is not a museum but a house respectfully lived by second generation. The walls with small and screwed traces of gimmick gifts that doesn’t fit a designers aesthetic values, but what anyhow mimics life as it is lived with a family of different orientations in life.

    The Sicilian summer – according to Giacomo – stretch from May to October and Giacomo owes all that support architecture and nature lovers can offer to keep an important architectural heritage alive. Villa Capo Zafferano is a place with a soul and a place to explore all your senses!

    My wife and I were fortunate to get the chance rent this Sicilian architectural pearl for just a too short week!

    Views on views on views… on views… This villa has some of the most stunning views I have ever seen in my life, and I was able to take them in on the beautiful terrace overlooking the ocean, a private reef, and the Capo Zafferano. Giacomo, the host, was incredibly helpful and made our stay special. He genuinely cares about this beautiful place and you can tell by how he wants everyone to enjoy it as much as he does. We took in a sunrise and multiple sunsets on the terrace, which has to be at least 40 meters long, and I even went down to the water on your private reef to take a quick dip. You’re only a short drive outside of Palermo, and even shorter to Bagheria. I would highly recommend this Villa, and will have it in high consideration when we come back!!
