Faragas | Paros
Set at the low-key southern part of Paros, villa Gasol occupies a generous plot of land that affords privacy and 360o views of the landscape and the sea beyond. The impressive 8 bedroom residence is a perfect example of Cycladic architecture, comprising different-sized cubes bundled up together to form a compact, low-rise structure.
The doors and windows are painted in cerulean blue to juxtapose with the stark white exterior, much like the deep blue sea contrasts the bright mid-day sky. The structure’s layout allows for ample outdoor space which has been utilized to create social areas that encourage open-air living. A large swimming pool serves as the centerpiece of the yard, offering respite from the summer heat and an ideal spot for evening gatherings.
The outdoor facilities include a BBQ, a shaded lounge area, a dining setting and a yoga space. To complement the rural feel of the setting, the house is surrounded by a garden that has been carefully designed to look like a natural continuation of the landscape.
Inside the house, the décor is a blend of classic and modern pieces set against a backdrop of country-inspired elements, such as stone-paved floors and uncovered stone walls. The palette is a fusion of natural beige and rust tones that convey a natural feel. Hand-picked ornaments and art pieces have been carefully placed around the house to add character to the rooms.
The bedrooms, fitted with glass doors that lead to the garden, are arranged over the house’s three levels. There is also an independent guesthouse with a master bedroom and two en-suite twin bedrooms, decorated in whimsical island-chic patterns.
