Halcyon Villas, Naxos
The Halcyon complex comprises two individual villas and two suites which overlook the mountains of Naxos. They sit atop a hillside overlooking the rural farming landscape, located a short distance from Naxos centre and port.
Halcyon Villas put a contemporary spin on the country’s traditional Cycladic architecture, crafting a super cosy, practical, welcoming, enjoyable and comfortable environment. The property’s textural interiors combine cement floors with rough, exposed stone walls, concrete benches and contemporary furniture choices.
The living room and dining room open onto the terrace overlooking the swimming pool, but the real selling points are the bathrooms. Pared-back chic reaches its peak in the bare necessities vibe that the owners have created in each separate wet room. These bathroom spaces are unlike any I have seen before, the perfect zones to relax and become energised, whilst also capturing a picture of perfection. Their rugged concrete walls and floors are hardwaring and stylish, but also provide fully water resistant areas.
The main villa bathroom is a spa-style home sanctuary, complete with both a stand up and lie down massage shower.
An element of fun is brought to the main living area with a sunken area that transforms into a giant tub/indoor bathing pool. Far from the traditional bath this sunken design accessed via a doorless stair entry was the epitome of bathroom goals for my younger sister who loves nothing more than unwinding in a bubbly bath.
The designer has obviously considered the free spirit feeling we all feel whilst on holiday, and has incorporated a swinging chair to accompany the large main dining table.
The Halcyon complex shares a quaint swimming pool with views over the island, and outside dining area with large outdoor terrace complete with a bar & bbq for entertaining all guests.
Halcyon Villas provided me with the perfect slice of lustworthy interior inspiration whilst vacating. I am now more than inspired to transform my bathroom into a wet room and am trying to figure out where in the Half Filled House would be appropriate for a swing?!
