Porto Heli | Peloponnese
An ultimately relaxing Mediterranean-inspired oasis surrounded by nature.
This villa is an elegant cottage that belongs to a complex of three independent villas surrounded by rolling countryside and located just a 5min drive from the nearest beach. Rather than building a structure that dominates its setting, the architect created a low-slung, country-inspired home that celebrates its surroundings. The low-slung house boasts terracotta-tiled roofs and wooden pergolas that extend outwards to provide shade for the porch. Sheltered from the scorching sun, the outdoor lounging and dining areas offer soul-calming views of the lawn garden and the lush landscape that embraces the house. A paved path leads to the swimming pool, a patch of vibrant blue protected by fruit trees and flowering shrubs.
The interior is country-inspired, with wooden beamed ceilings and airy, open-plan rooms that are fitted with large glass doors to connect the inside to the outside. The palette is mostly white, leaving nature to flow in through the large sliding doors and fill the rooms with its soothing colours. The décor is complemented by discrete touches of modern and a few country-chic artworks that add a dash of luxury to the rooms. In the bedrooms, the mood is provincial in a relaxed, understated way that creates a laid-back ambience. Glass doors are fitted here, too, capturing handsome views of the landscape.
