- Architecture & development
The Greek design studio Stones & Walls has already had many cosy holiday homes on its record of achievements, and with Atoles Retreat it can add another one to the list. The understated luxury and relaxed finesse, combined with the idyllic surroundings, make for a serene retreat.
Atoles Retreat is located in the Imerovigli cliff and enjoys stunning views of the sea. The residence, which comprises five suites, was designed in the typical architectural style of Santorini and has been skilfully adapted to the harsh natural environment. The retreat combines understated luxury with high-end amenities to create the ultimate holiday destination. A refined contemporary minimalism is how the style of the resort can be described. The design avoids exaggeration, creating a balance between richness and restraint. Natural materials and textures such as marble, stone and linen were chosen for the interior, creating a sense of belonging. The organic shapes of the handcrafted objects, in turn, strengthen the connection with the rough landscape.
The holiday accommodation exudes a calm and intimate atmosphere.
The 'wine red' in the details, which refers to the local viticulture, provides a surprising contrast and enriches the muted colour scheme. In this way, the authentic character of Santorini is highlighted. Traditional architecture blends with contemporary tones, harmoniously juxtaposing the primary and the modern. The five suites unfold in the landscape in a very sculptural way. Each residence has an elegant interior with comfortable living areas that open out onto terraces with a private swimming pool. From the terrace, you can enjoy a wonderful view of the sea and the Caldera.
The holiday accommodation exudes a calm and intimate atmosphere, creating the perfect environment for guests to unwind. Want to get enchanted by more impressive projects and inspiring architecture?
