Naturally Minimalistic


With light and nature championed to promote relaxation and wellbeing, Abode2 explores the minimalist approach and natural materials that accentuate the new Palmares Ocean Living & Golf villa’s stunning architecture

The newly completed villa at the Algarve’s luxurious Palmares Ocean Living & Golf delivers the perfect balance between exceptional architecture and interior design inspired by the natural environment in which it is situated.

Revealed by Kronos Homes, which owns and operates Palmares Ocean Living & Golf, the detached villa, designed by Pritzker Prize winners RCR Arquitectes, boasts a minimalist interior filled with natural tones, textures and light. It is the show home for a series of four-bedroom, turnkey villas priced from €3.4 million, each of which comes with its own private pool and spectacular sea views, thanks to Palmares’ privileged position in a natural amphitheatre overlooking the estuary of Alvor.

Alda Filipe, Sales and Marketing Director at Kronos Homes, comments: “The beauty of the setting has inspired every element of the villa, from its design and positioning to its interior décor. The furnishings let the architecture speak and breathe – it’s very elegant and minimalist. The architecture and interior design are together in perfect harmony.”

Styled by an established Iberian interior designer, the villa features a blend of older, reclaimed furnishings and new pieces, all chosen for the grace of their design. As with the villa itself, every element had to be exceptional.

The bedrooms are a superb example. Bright and elegant, they feature a mix of textures, with linens, velvets, cushions and plaids all playing a role, along with the upholstered bases of the beds. The tones are all light and natural, even down to the light rug that perfectly finishes the space and draws everything together.

A sense of relaxation flows throughout the home. Each bedroom features a seating element, whether an armchair or chaise longue accompanied by a floor lamp to create a relaxing reading corner, or a bench at the foot of the bed that’s perfect for curling up on.

Ornamental touches such as black vases, books, candles and sculptures have been chosen to provide interest and contrast. Pillars topped by sculptures or vases frame the spectacular views from the villa’s windows. Paintings rest on the floor to respect the concrete walls, furthering the sense of harmony between the villa’s stunning architecture and its sophisticated interior.

In addition to villas, buyers at Palmares Ocean Living & Golf can also choose between signature apartments priced from €580,000 and land plots from €1.15 million. All owners benefit from annual golf membership for two people, for the resort’s 27-hole golf course, which was designed by respected American architect Robert Trent Jones Jr. There is also a spectacular new clubhouse, also designed by Pritzker Award-winning RCR Arquitectes, which is home to the Michelin-starred Al Sud restaurant, under the leadership of Executive Chef Louis Anjos.

Alda Filipe concludes: “Being just a 10-minute drive from the characterful town of Lagos, and moments from the beautiful four-kilometre stretch of sand that is Meia-Praia beach, Palmares owners have plenty on their doorstep. They also have the chance to disconnect from the outside world entirely, luxuriating in the incredible natural environment all around them. This sense of serenity, light and nature is precisely what the show villa embodies.”
