The newly contemporary built house is located on the last hills of the Iblei with a view of the baroque town of Noto and the Ionian Sea. With its simple modernity, it fits perfectly into the tranquil oasis of the Mediterranean Macchia and the garden with olive, almond and carob trees.

The Sicilian architect Mimmo Peraino placed emphasis on impressive perspectives and views, creating a bright open space feeling. Generous, frameless panoramic glass sliding doors seamlessly connect the inside with the outside. Attention was paid to the choice of materials, the specific surfaces and the staging of natural and artificial light. Local materials such as the Nerello stone from Trapani and the limestone dry walls contrast with the cement look of the natural plaster walls and ceilings.

A spacious 75m2 kitchen, dining and living area on two levels opens onto terraces with views of Noto, the surrounding hills and the Gulf of Noto and the south-eastern tip of Sicily. The house is characterised by a continuous muro a secco wall, the graphic patterned stone floor and the black granite kitchen block.

Two spacious bedrooms look out onto green oaks, pines and carob trees, which create a pleasant, fresh microclimate in summer, while a small bedroom catches the setting evening sun. Each of the rooms has its own bathroom with fine marble basins and iconic Arne Jacobson taps. Showers are taken in front of large sliding glass doors, as if standing outside.

Outside, the 15-metre-long infinity pool, which seamlessly connects to the terraces, extends the architectural design to the garden.

The morning sun gently warms the wide-roofed north terrace, which is already in cool shade by midday and is perfect for lunch and dinner.  The pool terraces, on the other hand, do not miss a ray of sunshine. In the evening, the Mediterranean scent of sage, rosemary and thyme surrounds the house. Sunset cocktails can be enjoyed by the lights of Noto, Marzamemi and Portopalo on the roof terrace.

The almost meditative calm and energy that surrounds the house allows you to completely switch off and deeply relax from the everyday hustle and bustle of city life – a perfect place to find inspiration and recharge your batteries.

After a 10-minute drive, however, you can immerse yourself in the vibrant life of Noto and its restaurants.  Located in the heart of the Val di Noto, the other baroque towns such as Scicli, Modica and Ragusa are ideal for short trips. The beautiful sandy beaches of Vendicari are close by, as is the romantic fishing village of Marzamemi. Syracuse with the old town of Ortigia is the cultural treat of the region with its Greek excavations, museums and the 2700 year old Athena temple. While the natural reserves of Vendicari, Pantalica and Cava Grande surprise with their scenic diversity.

Nous avons passé un agréable séjour dans la Casa Balate, le propriétaire était très sympathique avec un accueil chaleureux. La maison est magnifique avec une vue imprenable sur les vignes et la mer.
