A fantasy getaway destination. An 18th century tower house perched high on the slopes of Exo Nyfi, an ancient village in the south Peloponnese in Greece. Towers and castles and stone and views forever. Think modern minimalism meets rustic idyll. Rough luxe rules. Available for holiday let. Maina via Urlaubs Architektur.
The building in the old quarter of the port city of Jaffa, Israel is hundreds of years old but the living spaces are modern and minimalist. Much of the character had been removed by previous owners so architect Pitsou Kedem striped the walls and ceilings back to the beautiful, ancient stone before combining old with new. All with the spartan aesthetic common to the simple stone dwelling and the now minimalist modern interiors.
I thought I would follow up the last rustic home with another because WHY NOT. This is an 18th century stone country retreat in Cotswold, U.K decorated by interior designer Caroline Holdaway. It is such a beautiful structure, you could pretty much fill it with anything and I would still be totally smitten. Old floorboards, stone walls, beamed ceilings and some vintage furnishings makes this the coziest little getaway.
