Folegandros, Villa Almyra
Folegandros is a relatively small island (32 square miles) located at the southwest point of the Cyclades between Sikinos and Milos. It is 102 nautical miles away of Piraeus (the port of Athens). This Greek villa is situated on half acre of land and surrounded by the Cycladic landscape of uncultivated beauty and severe morphological lines. It debouches mildly on 400 m2 piece of land embraced with hills, maintaining unobstructed sea view and is entirely modulated and united with the scenery, using materials and colors that reverence the natural beauty of Folegandros. The rooms were designed to express the feeling of a private residence, comfortable and remarkable from the inside as well as the outside. The setting of the building allows the creation of an outside space with pergolas and a Jacuzzi/swimming pool. The modern approach in design and the fresh touch of interior decoration emphasize the signature of the architect’s philosophy. Folegandros is an unspoiled Greek island and is well known for its unspoiled nature. It’s a unique and untouched part of Greece. The island hasn’t been affected by modern-day over development and has been protected from mass tourism. This atmosphere surrounds the island.
