Villa Margot combines perfectly the flawless elegance of a boutique hotel with the intimate atmosphere of a private home. Styled to the detail, the 6 bedroom residence is built entirely out of stone that is left uncovered to blend the house into its ragged surroundings and create a striking antithesis between time-worn and ultra-modern -a concept that defines the house’s mood inside and out. The terraces are paved with concrete and dotted with ceramic pots of local flowers. The centrepiece of the outdoor areas is the swimming pool, a free-form infinity edge stunner that offers magnificent vistas of the Aegean.
Inside the house, the concept of indoor-outdoor living is taken to great new heights. The interior is pierced by so many glass doors and windows that it practically becomes a part of the terrace and yet is completely protected by the elements of nature when needed. The furnishings merely serve to complement the landscape -the true protagonist of this setting. Sleek and monochromatic save from the odd splash of colour, the décor is an ode to modernism. Taking cues from the exterior, the contemporary design is blended with raw, organic materials in the form of furniture. In the bedrooms, both the palette and ornamentation go back to the basics. Stark white surfaces and upholstery, a small object here and there, and bamboo-covered closets conjure havens of serenity and relaxation.
