Naousa | Paros
An eclectic island retreat with panoramic vistas.
This villa is perched on a hilltop that affords spectacular panoramas of the Parian coast's breathtaking landscapes, and is located only a 10min drive from the nearest beach. The low-rise, clean-lined structure is thoughtfully oriented to capture the views while being protected from the fierce island winds. The house is surrounded by yards complete with well-groomed gardens, patios fitted with lounge and dining settings and a swimming pool that overlooks the countryside and the sea beyond.
The interiors reflect the owner's eclectic taste -they are bold, beautiful and vibrant with colour. Here, Cycladic minimalism is translated into large, airy rooms that allow space for a spectacular collection of artworks and antiques from different periods, artists and styles. The décor is cohesive, with large, monotone surfaces that bring out the artworks. The house is built in levels, each space flowing into the next in an effortless way. To make it feel more intimate, the living room is divided into smaller areas by furniture or practical use; there is a comfortable lounge area, a dining area adjacent to the kitchen, a reading lounger, a couple of vintage cabinets filled with books and ornamented with unexpected objects. Smartly planned lighting systems are used to set the mood in each room -romantic for the living room, vibrant for the kitchen, soothing for the bedrooms, atmospheric for the outdoor areas- and accentuate the artworks. In the bedrooms, the décor is more subtle, with few artworks casually placed around the rooms to create an artistic yet clutter-free vibe.
