Villa Aigli is what its name means (aigli = glamor), a glamorous residence, with unexpected combinations so perfectly matched that makes you feel like home from the first moment. The entire complex is truly amazing and vibrant. It’s a genuine, traditional island house with natural elements and contemporary pop-ups fitted so good to the rest. There is an architectural and cultural signature all over the place. Villa Aigli is constructed following the delicate lines of the Cycladic relaxed simplicity and aesthetic. That known mixture of rock, white washed walls and wood creates, in this case, something totally different from what your eyes have seen.
Located in Naxos, a Cycladic island half hour flight away from Athens, this majestic one-acre estate will captivate you with its superior sense of elegance and comfort. Built in one of the quietest areas of the island, Villa Aigli stands at a very convenient location to take trips to the town and often visits to the beach. The villa’s dedicated concierge will meet you at the point of arrival and escort you to the residence. Once you have settled in, they will give you a tour of the property and assist you with everything you may need.
The residence stands out with its shape: an irregular building with those trade mark rounded corners and geometrical forms, white washed from end to end, with exposed wooden beams, window frames and traditional, heavy wooden doors with locking bolts. Both inside and outside the house dominate the wooden Naxian furniture and natural island materials, perfectly combined with modern pieces. When entering the outdoor gate, guests follow an imposing path which leads to a blessed olive tree planted in the center of a circular patio. Here starts a second path, leading to a small, charming white chapel within the property, while the initial path continues straight ahead, now covered by a vivid vine pergola, and leads to the house.
The whole residence, from the interior till the chapel and the outdoor paths, has an architectural cohesion. The arches of the doors, passages and windows, the locking bolts and iron hinges, arrowslit windows, wooden ceilings, many wooden outdoor pergolas and balconies, pebbled walls, aged oak or polished cement floors, some stone washed walls, landscaped outdoor areas, are all handmade to perfection by local craftsmen.
Villa Aigli is actually a residence divided with simplicity into two. On the upper level guests will find an en suite master bedroom with a private shower, one bedroom and a cozy living room along with a fully equipped kitchen. The lower level or the “Cellar” has an en suite master bedroom with a private bathroom, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a laundry room. The traditional Cycladic open plan living and dining room have all the required equipment to host anything from a simple dinner to a party or a barbecue, and definitely to welcome a cook for your needs, giving you the opportunity to enjoy the inspiring kitchen.
The decoration of the house is special, making great impression to everyone visiting Villa Aigli. Using the same materials, the creators of this warm, comfortable and chic interior have achieved a result taken out of magazine pages. All around the house are used high quality fabrics and elements that generate a replica of a traditional Naxian house. Red, white, beige and light blue are the most used colors.
The living and sitting rooms have built-in sofas with several motif cushions, soft fringing blankets and ornate throws with lace ends on. There are charming wooden tables and chairs – sometimes matching, sometimes not – as well as cheerfully decorated coffee tables, colorful stools, modern luminaires, soft rugs, wooden or built-in shelves and cupboards with decorative doors, storing crockery. Vintage cotton cut-out curtains and valances are hanging all over the house while in bedrooms is used embroidered and crocheted bedding over the comfortable mattresses lying on built-in beds. Painted wooden railings add some more of the island aura.
The rustic kitchens, with the vibrant welcoming atmosphere, are the most amazing part of the house. Here you’ll find built-in kitchen counters following the “rounded-corners” style of the residence, modern and retro electrical appliances, cooking fireplaces, more dining tables, chairs and stools as well as artistic luminaires which will totally engross you.
The property offers a vast, lush outdoor space including different sitting and lounging areas such as a cooking patio with barbeque and dining table, a fully equipped outdoor kitchen, two shaded verandas – one with a large dining table and the other with a smaller dining table, a built-in bench and shading curtains, a lounge terrace with sofas, armchairs and artistic luminaires hanging from a wooden beam pergola. In front of the terrace there are sunbeds facing the interesting fresh-water swimming pool, which has a tiny bridge with silver wooden railings leading to an islet with sunbathing seats located in the center of the pool. Closely to the pool there is a built-in long bench on the grassed area with a tall bamboo hedge that creates a natural border, protecting the outdoor living pool area.
One of the most big advantages of Villa Aigli is that it’s very welcome with children of all ages, including babies. This spacious residence is perfect for companies with kids or … very big families! Simply mention it during the booking and you’ll find many essentials waiting for you (sterilizes, high chairs, baby sittings, bicycles, in villa board games etc), saving you from carrying them all the way here and back. Of course it could not be less welcome to adults and for that you’ll experience upon your arrival a welcome dinner where you’ll be served a wonderful local meal cooked by the Naxian owners of the property, who will help you learn something about the way of life, the music customs and gastronomic traditions around a barbeque table.
Villa Aigli is ideal for tranquility of mind. It’s a ”window” to perfection – a rare living gathering so many successful combinations under one roof, surrounded by the pure landscape of the Naxian nature. The residence is overlooking the distant mountains and mountain villages, which, as you bring your sight closer, turn into distinct olive grooves and cypresses mixed with the garden’s lavenders, bougainvillea and jasmines.
