Being placed only 200 meters from the shore, 150 meters above sea level, in the middle of an olive tree orchard, this luxurious single level villa completed in 2013 offers privacy and breath taking views over Psira island and Tholos bay

The villa follows the unique cycladic architecture, organic and authentic in its nature, with functionalities suited to modern living, thus being an ideal choice as a holiday rental property or personal holiday paradise.

The villa is built on  1062 sq. meters of private land and has 112 sq. meters of interior spaces (including storage), consisting of 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms (2 ensuite bathrooms), independent kitchen and a living room.

The living area together with one bedroom enjoy a vast opening on the pool terrace. You can actually admire stunning views over Tholos bay at night from the comfort of the bed. The folding doors can be fully opened to create an effectively continuous internal / external living area. The second bedroom benefits from a wonderful garden opening. All shutters are made of the beautiful and durable Niangon wood, changing their white color throughout the day from intense white to rose-beige.

The charming bathrooms display curved forms, putting emphasize on the simplicity and purity of the materials incorporating exclusive fittings and fixtures. The fully equipped kitchen has an authentic design, enjoying both garden and sea view.

All materials, furnishings and appliances are best quality, carefully chosen and designed, in perfect in harmony with the minimalist elegance of the interiors. The custom made furniture of traditional inspiration creates maximum functionality and enhance the beauty of the villa through stylish simplicity: wooden Niangon beds hand carved in a ship workshop, surfaces with antique look, mono-block lavatories hand-carved from local stone, white stucco shelves and depositing spaces, stucco veneziano chimney etc.

Separated from the main villa, there is also an annex composed by one bedroom with ensuite bathroom, an area for storage, utility room, and a large covered car port.

The orientation of the villa benefits from the use of natural light and sun. The walls painted in white have enough thickness to ensure a cooler climate in the interior, typically for traditional cycladic architecture.

Making the most out of the natural landscape, the exterior garden was designed by a Cretan landscape architect, combining decorative plants with scented spices and fruitful trees in order to enjoy fruits and flowers all year round: olives, oranges, mandarins, lemons, figs, mousmoulia (a type of peach), pomegranate. An automatic watering system ensures the daily watering of the plants and trees.
