Visiting Greece opens so many possibilities that it’s hard to even know where to begin. Since you can surf the internet for the best offers, we won’t get into that right now. But we will present a fascinating Greek villa prepared to offer a serene environment in the quiet village of Megalochori, on the Santorini Island. Renovated to suit the modern traveler who wants to enjoy the peace found in remote locations, Villa Anemolia welcomes guest with a chic revival of Greek hospitality.
What is now Villa Anemolia used to be a traditional house until Greek studio MplusM reshaped its interiors into welcoming accommodation spaces. The new hotel’s basic concept relies on simplicity and comfort. Preserving existing rooms and constructing built-in storage solutions, MplusM revived the villa and its surroundings, creating a beautiful place to relax.
“The three vaulted rooms were preserved with minimum alterations. All previous furniture was removed – we chose built-in beds, wardrobes that merge with the walls and wooden sofa beds that flank the living area. Traditional vaulted structures in Santorini are typically cavernous, embedded in the volcanic soil and this unit is no exception; windows open only to the side of the courtyard. Thus we opted for additional light sources: new skylights and small wall recesses with embedded lights offer a dispersal of luminosity from hidden light sources. New planted areas in the courtyard and roof terrace upgrade all outdoor areas and become the primary backdrop for a pleasant stay.”
