Art Hotel Atelier sul Mare is a hotel-museum of contemporary art unique in the world, just few meters from a wonderful sea, in Castel di Tusa (ME), nearby Cefalù.

The hotel is situated in a territory full of culture and popular traditions. Inserted in a rare beauty sight, in a wonderful frame of an integral and magnetic nature, between a crystalline sea and the Nebrodi mounts, Atelier sul Mare is an ideal hotel for who wants to spend unforgettable vacations. A place of art, romantic and relaxant, for who wishes to regenerate spirituality in a magical and exclusive atmosphere. 

The realization of 20 of the total 40 rooms of Atelier sul Mare has been given to international artists, with the result of unique art works. To enter and stay in these emotional spaces, mean living a new spiritual dimension, enjoying that happiness of existing that only the creativity of the art can donate. Antonio Presti, already creator of Fiumara d' Arte (the biggest open air park of sculptures in Europe), is the author of this unique reality where landscape, culture and art are merged in order to show and let living to the visitors of this beautiful land an unforgettable emotion: the art must be lived like a dream. 

The dream of many people: to spend a night inside a museum to fall asleep within an art work. Antonio Presti, with his noble and further vision, has changed radically the idea of hotel room in order to deliver it to his utopia: "It’s only entering and living the room that the art work will be totally realized; the presence, the use of the room, will be integrating and fundamental part of it ".

Art Hotel Atelier sul mare is reported like an exclusive international center, a great container of contemporary art, an alive museum, where the guest-visitor doesn’t have a relationship with the contemplative art or distant anymore, but can live the art work in a pure emotional condition.
