A Greek Cabin in the Spirit of Le Corbusier
In honor of French architect Le Corbusier and the seaside holiday house he built for his wife in 1952 on the Cote d’Azur across the bay from Monaco – husband and wife team, Anotnis Choudalakis and Sofia Mavroudis, built their own pair of cabins in Kissamos, Crete. Although miles from Le Corbusier’s Le Cabanon in the south of France, they carry the spirit of the original, celebrating minimalism and the sanctuary of nature referring to these cabins as a “personal utopia, hidden from the world but near beaches, celebrating the islands slow living.”
Sited perfectly on the hillside, with their glass facing facades and set amongst hundreds of lush olive trees these cabins seem to come alive at sunset.
Lounge away the afternoon… the perfect spot to take in the endless olive trees and incredible views of the mountains and the sea.
Pick a great spot to chill out and relax along the Aegean Sea, before heading to town to sample some of the tasty Cretan cheeses… try Kalitsounia or Dakos (made from chunks of ripe tomatoes, sheep’s cheese and a bit of Greek olive oil).
Picture postcard perfect. The views from the deck are all about unwinding, feeling the sea breeze, and doing absolutely nothing but having a glass of locally harvested wine.
The interiors boast a minimalist Nordic-inspired style, with wood accents and bold modernist lines. To book this incredible property visit the Boutique Homes website. https://bit.ly/39QwWnm
