The renovation of Residenza Semaforisti, which opened its doors to its first guests in 2016, was the last phase of Faro Capo-Spartivento’s articulate restoration project.
The building, once the lighthouse keeper’s lodge, is the only military structure in Italy to have been converted into guest accommodation.
The holes of the machine gun bullets shot from the American planes during World War II can still be seen on its walls, testimony to the role the building played during the conflict.
Surrounded by the wild and unspoiled nature of Capo Spartivento, just a few metres away from the Lighthouse, Residenza Semaforisti is a separate and autonomous U-shaped building with a raised teak courtyard featuring a large central fireplace and plenty of places to relax. Opposite the courtyard there is a bar area, a wood oven, which guests are free to use, and access to a large wine cellar, which once was a water tank.
At the side of the building, a spiral staircase leads to the infinity swimming pool, with views that range from the mountains to the west coast up to Capo Malfatano.
The wine cellar, just as the swimming pool on the roof of the fuel tank building, is the result of an important renovation project.
