Villa Circeo is located in San Felice, Municipality of Circeo; approximately one hour away from Rome, Italy. San Felice offers many wonders of environmental-naturalistic nature; the most important are the cost line with its beautiful beaches, and the National Park of Circeo. It is a perfect scenario to revisit what legend and history left behind; it is believed to be the location where Ulysses met Circe in the Odyssey, and it offers extensive demonstrations and findings of Medieval period that are rich throughout the territory.
Villa Circeo is is situated on the slope of Monte Circeo confining between the National Park of Circeo and a private harbor. This small-scale residential zone is the most exclusive within the surrounding area; the beach and the natural features attract many influencers and elite personalities.
The topographical location and architectural orientation offer great views from all areas of the house. Facing South, toward the water, it is possible to see the Islands of Palmarola, Ponza, Zannone, and with optimal weather conditions Ventotene. Facing North, toward the promontory, is the National Park of Circeo with a variety of Flora and Fauna and the many natural caves.
The architectural renovation maintains the cubature of the pre-existing structure but rearranges spaces creating new forms. Modularity is the key element for the design, a central sector acts as circulation and buffer zone between common areas and sleeping areas. Views are maximized with ribbon windows that extend throughout each space of the house; a system of louvers provides sufficient shade without interrupting the vistas.
