Villa Kalos in Ithaca

00-Exterior

This amazing villa is located in the island of Ithaca, in Greece. It was an abandoned building before south African photographers Gerda Genis and Robbert Koene  decided to renovate it and use it as a guest house for holidays. The concept of Villa Kalos is to offer all those who like to spend their holidays in the countryside and are looking for an intimate environment on one side, yet furnished and completed with the top-quality details on the other, a place where all this is actually possible. Situated upon the terraced gardens that surround the home and the 6,000 square meters that the property occupies, overlooking almond trees and the olive groves dotting the nearby countryside, the only sound that can be heard are the goats nearby! Personally, I love the raw materials that are used and highlight the traditional architecture and structure of the building, leaving you with the simplicity and sincerity that is needed. I won’t say more, I leave you with the pictures…
