Lia | Mykonos
This villa is situated in Lia, one of the island's most beautiful beaches, away from the hedonistic crowds of the high-season holidaymakers and yet not too far from the bursting Chora and its endless array of entertainment options. The villa, perched on a slope that affords spectacular vistas of the Aegean, boasts the chill vibe of a Mexican hacienda.
To integrate the house into its surroundings, the architect sliced the ground and then paved the flattened areas with terracotta tiles. Parts of the rock were left uncovered to give the terraces an organic feel and echo the juxtaposition of the soothing blue sea and the arid landscape. The outdoor areas, all perfectly oriented to take in the views, were fitted with lounge and dining spots and a swimming pool that overlooks the seascape.
The interiors are perfectly attuned to island living. Bright, airy spaces are pierced by large openings that connect the indoor to the outdoor and invite the sea-views in. The natural materials -unfinished wood, concrete- and large whitewashed surfaces communicate the raw beauty of the landscape to the interior.
White and baby-blue tones add a cosy elegance and create an ultimately relaxing mood. The décor is island-chic with charming rustic touches, bringing a fresh summer look that makes the rooms feel warm and welcoming. In the bedrooms, the effect of unfinished textures and rustic-chic style conveys a homely, intimate atmosphere.
