This elegant five-bedroom villa in Akrotiri has panoramic views over blue-domed churches, white-washed houses and the dazzling Aegean Sea. The sunsets are spectacular. Blonde’s generous outdoor spaces (there are four sea-facing terraces) include a large pool, which is flanked by plush day beds and umbrellas, and shaded outdoor seating. The unique feature here is the villa’s world-class recording studio, which has been used by artists from around the world. The villa boasts tasteful beach-chic décor throughout, with driftwood and local stone used in the furnishings. There’s an open-plan kitchen/diner with plenty of countertop space and everything needed to rustle up family feasts, and this leads down to a restful white lounge. Bonus features include a games room with a football table and dartboard and a useful study for any guests that need to hide away and catch up on work emails in peace. Cosy ensuite bedrooms are set over three floors. The top level houses a double bedroom, there are two further double/twin bedrooms on the ground floor, and the final two double/twin bedrooms are on the lower level, so there’s plenty of space for multi-generational holidays.
