The apartment is spacious, elegant, contemporary and comfortable – the perfect place from which to experience the enchanting atmosphere and history of Noto. Noto is the most significant of the eight south-eastern Sicilian towns which were declared World Heritage sites for their Baroque architecture by UNESCO in 2001, and has become a sought-after destination for elite travellers seeking art, culture and fine gastronomy.
Although resolutely contemporary, the apartment’s atmosphere and design are deeply rooted in history, fusing state-of-the-art elegance and glamour with the sobreity and use of space typical of the Sicilian aristocratic home. The hosts have a fantastic eye for detail, using carefully selected pieces of designer furniture, original paintings and precious natural fabrics to create a space that is both harmonious and enveloping.
Casa Vasquez has an area of about 180 square metres on two floors:
On the first floor the entrance leads into a living room with TV zone and conversation area. Light floods in through a window and balcony looking out over the city.
From here, as is typical in aristocratic Sicilian houses, you proceed to the other rooms:
On the lower floor, with its own entrance, and so absolutely private, is a third double bedroom with bathroom and shower.
Living in the historic centre of Noto, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Being surrounded by beauty!
Being a few minutes’ drive from the lovely beaches of the Vendicari nature reserve as well as some elegant and exclusive local lidos.
