About the villas
The architecture of the houses and villas is a combination of traditional features coupled with a modern approach. For example, the shape and size of the smaller windows is inspired by local traditional design and has been combined with modern building materials such as metal. The design of the windows helps to keep out the heat of the day and at the same time acts as a frame for the magnificent seascape across the bay.
All the houses, villas have vaulted roofs, which gives a sense of extra space when viewed from below, and are painted in sky blue. The floors are made of an ivory and blue mosaic to match the color of the roof. Each living room has a divider/bookcase "patina" painted in the same hue. Local masons have built the garden walls which are marvelous examples of exposed stonework. The landscaped gardens are full of typical Mediterranean trees and flowers and are properly looked after by a professional gardener. White marble is used in all outside walkways and pavements.
The 3 Bedroom Villa features a luxurious master bedroom retreat with en-suite bathroom and two smaller bedrooms sharing a bathroom, a tastefully designed sitting area with a cozy fire place and a lovely open plan kitchen for true cooking pleasures.
The imposing floor to ceiling windows lead to the stunningly beautiful private pool where visitors can dip in the shimmering waters of the pool and enjoy the breathtaking views to the sea. Impressive tromp l' oeil hand-painted ceilings and marble touches embellish the vast bathrooms which come complete with a makeup mirror, hairdryer, pool towels, downy bathrobes and slippers plus abundant luxury appointments and necessities.
