Stunning Villa Of Domenico Dolce And Stefano Gabbana In Stromboli
Luxury Dolce&Gabbana villa on the slopes of the Stromboli volcano in Sicily
Extraordinary villa of designers Dolce and Gabbana for sale overlooking the sea of the island of Stromboli
The untouched Island of Stromboli, in Sicily, where the majestic volcano offers breathtaking views, is home to this extraordinary villa for sale, a truly unique property owned by famous fashion designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana.
Stretched on the spur of a rock dropping sheer down to the sea, this estate was born from the perfect merge of three typical local buildings, their sinuous lines and white colours harmonically set into this crossroad between man and landscape.
The property follows the coastline like a wave, allowing us to appreciate the overall structure from any point of the house.
Behind it, “iddu” (“him”), as the locals call the volcano, stands in all its glory; while sweeping views of the sea are in front of us, interrupted only by Strombolicchio, a very small volcanic island and the point where the sun rises: the intense pink light of dawn flooding into the horizon and the house's façade every morning.
Measuring over 1,279 sqm, including 479 gross sqm of interiors, this estate surprises us with its unexpected corners and a complex architecture, with spacious relaxation areas offering enchanting views that change in colour and tone throughout the day.
The exteriors of the villa are in the island's typical style, but its rooms and terraces overlooking the sea reveal its personality, which is in Dolce&Gabbana's unmistakable style.
The distinctive features of this prestigious fashion house are shown in this property's magnificent furnishings, blended as they are with the refined objects produced by local artisans, flaunting weightless lace curtains fluttering in the wind in an echo to typical Sicilian homes, and the very colourful hand-painted majolica that adorn walls and floors. Not to mention the dozens of cushions made with Dolce&Gabbana textiles. all in a different theme and main colour, that we can find on sofas and chairs, on the terraces and in this property's seven suites as another example of the very precise interior design care given to make this villa truly unique.
The bathrooms are all in a different style and feature lava stone cladding.
A prime example of exclusivity and refinement, and one of the few estates with direct access to the sea, this property is a showcase of its owners' creative talent and of their unconditional love for this seemingly harsh and inaccessible area, which can be conveniently reached via helicopter thanks to the heliport located a few minutes from the property.
Time seems to have stopped in Stromboli, in this frame of authentic, respectful dialogue with the wildest nature, surrounded by low houses, the scent of wild herbs and narrow streets that are not lit by artificial lights. A simple land that does not wish to change, a place where the extraordinary reveals itself in every single detail of this exclusive Dolce&Gabbana villa.
