Designed to blend with the rocky topography of the island, the villa is cooled by Aegean breezes and bathed in the beautiful Cycladic sunshine.
This is a modern contemporary house drawing upon Cycladic architecture and using local island materials to create a home of intimate charm, elegance and style.
The villa with an exquisite interior design has been featured in many architectural and life - style magazines around the world. Whitewashed rough surfaced walls, floors of stone or coloured cement, built-in furniture, corridors carved into rocks, the use of old doors throughout, create an elegant and cosy atmosphere.
The main rooms open onto a patio, balcony or terrace, where one can dine, sunbathe or lounge undisturbed.
External lighting adds to the aura of magic and romance - the perfect stage for entertaining.
The interior is as unique as the exterior. From the kitchen to dining area, to living room, to bedrooms and bathrooms, the style, the design and the function are consistent and harmonious.
The villa, built in 2003, provides 393 sq.m. of living accommodation with four bedrooms and five bathrooms and is set in 2,000 sq.m. of carefully tended gardens. Both in terms of style and size, the villa is a unique home offering a high level of privacy within an elegant and pleasant setting.
The property consists of two buildings, the main building and the guest house. An impressive infinity - edge lap pool, bordered by stone patios and wooden decking, runs the full length of the main house and enjoys stunning views of the Aegean sea and the neighbouring islands.
