Less than a one hour flight from Malé, up to the Maldives’ uncharted northern edge, beckons an island of singular beauty. Over 17 acres of palm-edged, pristine sand rises Viceroy Maldives, where only 61 villas encircle a lagoon of startling blue.

Law of attraction believers, you might want to pin this up. This palace of a luxury villa is located at the heart of a 2700 acre private estate on Tuscany border in Italy. The owner, Count Antonio Bolza, specializes in refurbishing isolated buildings spread across the estate which he then markets them to premier clients. Design and good taste runs within the family. The Count’s son, Benedikt Bolza, is in the list of Architectural Digest’s AD100 and his brother Niki Bolza is an interior designer as well. Together they are masters in giving new life to century old farmhouses like the one below.

CAPO SPARTIVENTO LIGHTHOUSE in Cagliari, Italy.

Welcome to the Lighthouse. The idea of hospitality that we like to offer is to be and let you feel at home. For this reason we chose to don’t have a menu, specific times, or a reception. Our Chef and our Maitre, talking with you, will decide your lunch or dinner, to taste the best wines of the island and making you enjoy the best of Sardinian cuisine properly “contaminated” by the creativity of our Chef. We will try, elegantly, to meet your every need.  The Lighthouse is a passion for all of us, and far beyond just a job. And that’s why we would like to offer more than a simple vacation, but a unique experience. Welcome to your home.

The Capo Spartivento Lighthouse was built in 1856 by the Italian Navy. During the last war it was machine-gunned by American planes and, later on, it functioned as the Lighthouse keeper residence until the late 80s. It has lit the way for seamen for over 150 years, slicing the darkness like a sword with its welcoming beam of light, it has become a luxury guesthouse without losing its original function. The Lighthouse is open all months of the year, and it’s really amazing in summer and even in winter with the fantastic stormy weather of the location. More info: CAPO SPARTIVENTO LIGHTHOUSE

Summer House in Paros by Alexandros Logodotis.

Daylight reveals the plasticity of tumor and white colors as watercolors have spread in selected areas, while at night the lights in headlights and other details throughout the building becomes a supernatural setting, hovering over the pool. The orientation is East and spaces organized in turn by the sun to “live” the best of their era: the outdoor kitchen has shade in the afternoon to be able to enjoy a meal in peace. The building appears to volume configured by touch, without straights and tight corners – as if it was slowly over time, with the wind and rain. The smooth curves and holes, the white Cycladic which eliminates the strong light and color harmonies, is what characterizes the area “breathe” the breeze coming through the openings. The center of gravity of the house seems to be the staircase stands like a sculpture. Patiti, gray concrete into alternating with marble tiling and signage in the area around the pool, sand-colored, covered the floors. The house and minimal ergonomic, ideal for anyone who went immediately into the atmosphere, which is something ethereal and water together. Accountable designed built shelves in the living room, a dining room buffet abstract and built beds, without spikes. The minimum-which has nothing but the usual rigor than tenderness and eroticism, is what fits the temperament of their owners and possibly only “ties” with such an advantageous position, as the Cyclades.
