The whitewashed façade of Villa AM12 feels like it has been hewn directly from the surrounding granite. The pastel blue shutters and wooden pergolas nod to the cafés which line the beach front at Psarou, just down the road. The elegant white sofas, meanwhile, are more reminiscent of the luxury beach clubs of the island’s capital. The first rays of the rising sun pour in through the huge arched windows, lighting up the lounge. The sand-coloured floor and huge woven rugs bring a touch of warmth to the minimalist, monochrome design scheme. In the bedrooms, the crisp white walls are punctuated with natural stone features. When night falls, the spotlights tucked away in the wooden ceilings lend the interior a maritime feel, as they illuminate the contemporary artworks which adorn the walls.
Hop out of bed early and head down to Psarou for an iced coffee on the beach. Later on, rent a jet ski or paddle board for an excursion on the still waters of the Aegean Sea. Back at the villa, stretch out by the infinity pool to watch the town light up as the sun sets over the Kalafatis peninsula.
