Italy, Sicily, Scopello
“Where the sky is tinged with strong colors that, especially at sunset, deafen with the intense red, turquoise and gold; where the wind, which brings warm scents of Africa and fine desert sand, where the sea, that still echoes the clamor of epic battles, skims the rocks, here is Western Sicily, the most “African” strip of the island and at the same time the most Sicilian of all of Sicily”
La Vela is a charming house located near Scopello with its Faraglioni (stacks) and tthe typical imposing rock that rises from the depths of the turquoise sea and the sailors called it “La Vela” (the Sail). The name of the house derives from it. The villa has direct access to the sea which is reached along a short path that leads to one of the most unpolluted and beautiful bays of Scopello area.
