Style Notes

Modern Mediterranean chic. This villa is light, bright and ultra-modern with decadent use of floor to ceiling glass windows and doors bringing in views of palm trees, coastal pines and the lush landscaped gardens. Sleek patio areas culminate around the stylish L shaped pool while an elevated glass balcony terrace and sundeck with modern sofas and sunbeds add sophistication to sunbathing. Inside, the contemporary design continues with soft greys and bright white walls, offset with plush velvets and colorful textiles. We love the blending of comfort and style with roomy sofas, huge plush beds and decadent sun loungers allowing for maximum relaxation. The swimming pool with fountain feature is a fabulous focal point - perfect for cooling daytime dips, and an atmospheric gathering spot for laid-back evening get togethers.
