AN OLD HOUSE WITH CHARM
Design hotel in an old Sicilian period residence
Sopra le Mura is an original Design Hotel, in a Sicilian period building located in the old town centre of Castellammare del Golfo, just above the ancient city walls from which it inherits its name. The presence of the ancient city walls and the Arab-Norman Castle defines the old town where the Hotel is located, of which its renovation has tried to preserve and enhance the historical-architectural characteristics, also respecting the historical stratifications that have succeeded from the early 1600s to 1900s, using the most innovative anti-seismic consolidation techniques.
The façade and the perimetre walls of the period building are enhanced by the lighting system that is turned on at sunset, creating fascinating light. The interior of the building, welcoming, colourful and perfect, features elements of the Sicilian tradition to be discovered with an admirable attention to detail that will pleasantly impress you. The property is located in a limited trafic zone, a perfect location for visiting the harbour.
THE RENOVATION AND THE ROOMS
The period building of Sopra le Mura with some of its rooms offers a surprising view of the harbour of Castellammare del Golfo, always teeming with tourists and locals, and in particular with fishermen intent on repairing their nets in view of the nightly fishing trips.
The conservative renovation has given new light to this period building which houses Hotel Sopra le Mura and has been able to restore the magic of a historic residence by creating it in a contemporary way.
The rooms have different architectures, sizes and furnishings: respecting the original space of the period building with design settings to create and guarantee the intimacy of the typical services of a boutique hotel.
