“Inspired by the beauty of the many classical remains in the region, every pavilion and villa at Amanzoe is built using the most modern techniques while commanding panoramic views over the dramatic countryside and Aegean Sea beyond.” – Ed Tuttle, Architect of Amanzoe.
In true Aman fashion, the team behind the conception of the Amanzoe Residences has chosen a paradisiacal setting in which to craft this limited collection of homes. International luxury hotel group Aman arrived onto the shores of history-rich Greece during a challenging period for the nation, but the Amanzoe Residences stand strong as a refreshing celebration of the country’s culture, history, architecture and civilization.
As you’d expect, the focus on traditional Greek architecture is prominent throughout the residences as gracious colonnades create a bold frontage, yet all elements of the traditional are met with clean, contemporary lines to bring these personal paradises in line with modern day living. The area in which the residences are located is enriched by archaeological sites, with the likes of the Sanctuary of Asklepios and Mycenae serving as clear inspiration. The residences enjoy high ceilings and subtle hues throughout, creating seemingly endless amounts of open space. Naturally lit and enhanced by timber and oak fittings, the open plan living area frames views of the Aegean Sea perfectly. Rich with fine local marble and adorned with handcrafted fixtures and fittings, each room serves as a unique and individual haven in which to enjoy the Aman lifestyle.
A generously sized marble-lined pool, emerald in colour, provides an elevated position from which to enjoy the breath-taking vistas beyond the resort’s private beach, whilst the solid timber pergolas are a thoughtful touch, affording owners with the shade they need to enjoy the Mediterranean climate by the pool or to dine al fresco on their expansive private terrace. The residences capture feelings of calm and tranquility throughout, and the balance between local architecture and inspired, innovative design has been struck perfectly.
What you see isn’t quite what you get, as each villa is customisable, allowing owners to collaborate with award-winning architect Ed Tuttle to build their dream home. Ed Tuttle is an architect of international acclaim, having worked on iconic projects such as Amanpuri, Park Hyatt Paris, Amanjiwo, Amanjena and The Sukhothai to name but a few. He was chosen for this particular project to produce a design capable of standing the test of time, reaffirming Amanzoe’s recognition internationally. Each lot ranges from 1-5 acres and offers a minimum of two bedrooms. Located just 10-15 minutes away from nearby Porto Heli, flourishing olive groves cushion the perimeter of each villa, creating a distinct sense of privacy and allowing for a seamless blend between the great outdoors and the nature-inspired interior. Look one way and you’re steps away from white-sand beaches and crystal waters. Turn the other way and you’re looking out onto the verdant Greek countryside. The location of the Amanzoe Residences more than does justice to a build of this stature.
Villa owners can enjoy a plethora of benefits including access to neighbouring Amanzoe Resort’s restaurants, pools, gym, yoga pavilion and private helipad. Further owner privileges include the Aman home management & villa services and use of the resort’s Wally One and Pershing 62 powerboats. Architecture and design of this calibre that just so happens to be positioned on the tip of paradise doesn’t come around often. The Amanzoe Residences offer a rare opportunity to gain access to five-star services and amenities from the privacy and seclusion of a beautifully crafted home on the spectacular Peloponnese coast.
