Rhodes, located in the southern Aegean, was one of the first Greek islands to attract large numbers of tourists and is, even today, one of the most popular due to its crystal-clear waters. The growing demand has led to villas and residences being built all over the island to cater for lovers of luxury and tourism away from the hustle and bustle of cities.
Villa Indira is located in Kalithies in the north-west of the island and was designed by owner Mania Sevasti in collaboration with Markos Giorgoudios, the official dealer of Ceramica del Conca in Rhodes. Here you can visit the 16th-century ‘Transfiguration of the Saviour’ church, the ‘Eleousa Monastery' and the stalactite cave of St. George, the oldest known Neolithic dwelling on the island.
Like most Greek houses, Villa Indira is painted white. The main facade is interspersed with local stone surfaces, explicitly evoking tradition, and glass for the finish of the balcony parapets on the first floor. At the centre of the large, well-kept garden there is an infinity pool with irregular contours, completely covered with the stone-effect 60x60 Climb stoneware tiles in the Noce colour. The Climb collection is inspired by the colours and shades of slate on timeworn, weathered Nordic roofs. The range includes an indoor version and an outdoor version with a grip surface perfect for poolsides and gardens. Next to the pool is a solarium, covered with the same collection, and a barbecue area for receiving guests and friends. The shower features the same colours as the swimming pool with a full-height covering made of 30x60 rectangular tiles also from the Climb collection. The villa is completely surrounded by typical local vegetation, orchards and ornamental shrubs. The sea view can be enjoyed from the bedrooms with large windows and habitable balconies or from the beautiful lawn reached by a staircase made of the same stone-effect porcelain stoneware tiles used for the entire exterior of Villa Indira.
