Psacharopoulos House is an authentic and historic holiday villa built during the middle of the 19th century.
What is the story behind Villa Nectar, what was your inspiration to create it?
Although there are many islands in Greece, we have always loved the Cyclades and wanted to buy a house somewhere there. We prefer islands that are more natural, unspoiled and not too touristic, so we chose Serifos. When we arrived at Villa Nectar, we said “yes” immediately — the view was just incredible!
How would you describe the atmosphere and interior design of Villa Nectar?
When we purchased the house, it was for the view alone, not the interior design. We completely changed it with the help of a young, talented architect named Georgia Nikolopoulou who works with Block722. One of the architectural firm’s founders is a close friend of ours and she suggested the collaboration with Georgia.
We wanted something simple, with natural colours and a warm, calming aesthetic. And this is exactly what we achieved. We call Villa Nectar "our little paradise" because it makes you feel relaxed and far away from everything.
To you personally, what is so special about Villa Nectar?
While we love Villa Nectar's traditional Cycladic architecture as it has been combined with modern elements, we think it is the view and the whole atmosphere that sets it apart. It’s also a bit of a hideaway — aside from the house next door, it feels very isolated. There are views from every corner of the house and beautiful beaches within a few minutes' drive.
We also like that there are different levels and areas, so you can always find a corner of privacy. For me, it’s important to have 10 minutes alone during the day and at Villa Nectar, it’s easy to do this, even when staying with family and friends.
And what do you particularly like about this part of the Cyclades
Serifos is unspoiled, calm, authentic with a wild beauty and numerous stunning beaches. This is what makes Serifos amazingly beautiful and unique.
