We chose Cyprus originally because it has the best weather in the region and is a safe haven, superb natural beauty and sparsely populated.
We drove around the island to find a place that was peaceful, tranquil and did not suffer from over exposure from developers, no high rise apartments or noisy touristy hotels. A tranquil hide-away; a peaceful retreat.
The location of Pomos we found to be ‘The’ place for us. A tiny fishing village where the mountains reach out to the sea, almonds, oranges, lemons and olive groves on mountain sides with the natural pine forests creating a holistic retreat of beauty and stunning nature.
We eventually found or dream location a 7 stepped piece of land that was a run down olive grove, set within a pine forest overlooking the fishing harbor. We chose an architect famous for his modernist architecture that was sympathetic to the environment.
We wrote a long brief of what we wanted in regard to a perfect holiday retreat. Perfect views from every point, adaptability in all seasons, clever use of space and allowing shade and sun when needed. We used the best materials in an uncluttered manner allowing nature to be the most important aspect.
If you like the idea of luxury modern living and the feeling you are at one with nature, this house has it all electric storms setting the night sky alight, nature putting on a show, star gazing the starry skies with no light pollution through the retractable roofs.
Outside dining bbq experience with fabulous sea views. Mystical sunrises and sunsets to endulge in.
Even the ability to slide the glass doors of the bedroom back in the summer nights and sleep under the stars. The swimming pool is integrated in the center of the upper part of the house making it possible to swim in complete seclusion!
The magical Winds blow from the West keeping us cool in the summer heat, hardly ever having to rely on any air-con as the house affords lots of through breeze. When you view the house from a distance it looks like a jewel in the pine forest quite magical…..
