Five minutes away from the charming fishing village of Aliki, on the heights overlooking the settlement, is Maison Kamari, the well-designed holiday home of Alexandra and Damien. Take a deep breath and contemplate the landscape: the amphitheatrical view down on the valley, the olive trees, the stunning mountain behind you, and in the distance Antiparos, the twin sister of Paros, floating in the blue Aegan sea. All around you, nature and it’s fragrance of wild thyme, typical Cycladic bushes and honeybees – a reminder that one of the best honeys in the world is Greek!
As soon as you arrive at the house you will want to jump into your bathing suit and enjoy the vast open pool area, in the centre of which grows an olive tree over a hundred years old. The pool lounge and its rooftop terraces are a real invitation to farnienté! The simple layout of this three-bedroom’s property has been designed by local architects with respect to Cycladic architecture, while the interior decoration is a mix of curated, smart mid-century pieces from emblematic designers sourced from markets in Paris, Athens and Paros, lending a chic Mediterranean-bohemian style to the house. The interior architecture is a result of the owners’ design and their obsession with coziness, hospitality and minimalism.
The heart of the property beats in the main house featuring an enormous open kitchen-dining room-living space area where you can share meals, music, or films (there’s a video projector and a great selection of DVDs). Each one of the bedrooms and their en-suite bathrooms are physically separated from each other for privacy, and are furnished with luxury COCO-MAT four-layer beds and pillows to ensure the best quality sleep and rest. Greek-made products and crafts are everywhere in this house, from beds, to organic beauty amenities and natural fabrics of the cushions. This dream house is definitely for the most discerning of epicureans!
