This spectacular property is located on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea in the middle of a juniper orchard and surrounded by Venetian stucco walls. In front of the house, a path leads down from the edge of a cliff to a secluded beach with crystal-clear water.
The villa was designed and built by Philippe Starck and for a time became his personal residence. Some of his most inspirational work was produced right here at this peaceful oasis. Situated on a plot of 37,000 sqm and consisting of a main house and a guest house, the overall impression is bright, relaxed and organic.
Quiet and cosy, yet deeply connected to its vernacular roots and intertwined with nature, Philippe Starck himself explains that “it takes inspiration from the architecture to be found on the island of Capri, specifically the Casa Malaparte”.
Vast bay windows look out on the sea, the spectacular rustic landscape, and let in loads of sunlight; the same view may also be enjoyed from the 100 m2 swimming pool, in the shade of a beautiful balcony.
The property’s interior consists of 400 sqm, and is noteworthy for its simple elegance and decorative restraint. The property feels somehow anchored in a modesty and purity, existing within its own laws of space and time: wooden tables and chairs consumed by time, sun loungers made from branches and vines, tree trunk furniture, plant fibres, etc. The guest house is divided into two fully-equipped studios.
