Contemporary comfort and panoramic
views over the gulf of Addaura







Casa del Mar is located on the coast near Palermo, midway between the sandy beach resort of Mondello and the rocky coastline of Addaura. Set over three levels, the focus of the house is the garden floor, where a capacious reception room fur-nished with understated contemporary elegance, and a large fully equipped kitchen open onto a patio set with chunky ethnic divans and a covered outdoor dining area with BBQ. Upstairs, linked to the ground floor by a light-flooded perspex walled staircase, are two bedrooms, each with ensuite bathroom. The master bedroom opens onto a large private terrace with panoramic views over the entire gulf of Addaura.

We like

The garden floor, and the way life can flow easily between indoors and outdoors.
Barbeques on the patio. 
The home cinema — a perfect place for kids to retreat to on hot afternoons giving adults peace and quiet while they take a siesta.
The master bedroom — walking out onto a private roof terrace with views over the gulf of Addaura.
Going down to the private beach club.

We think

An ideal villa for a group of friends or family (without small children) who want a holiday by the sea, in Mondello, which one of Sicily’s liveliest and most typical seaside resorts.
