Inside Villa Gaia:

Accommodation at Villa Gaia spans three floors, offering a modern, progressive interpretation of Patmos’s rich history and culture. The comprehensive restoration of the house, with sections dating back to the 9th century, was undertaken with rigorous respect for tradition, using local stone and tiles. The villa’s intriguing structure and original features have been maintained and enhanced, blending seamlessly with contemporary aesthetics. The décor includes an eclectic mix of mid-century modern, Italian, and vintage pieces, complemented by contemporary artwork from young European artists and Eastern Mediterranean furnishings.

Entering from the street, you pass through a partially covered vestibule leading to either the ground floor or, via a classic Patmian open-air staircase, the first floor.

  • Ground Floor: The main entrance opens into a traditional Patmian living area, featuring well-cushioned divans, whitewashed wood-beamed ceilings, and creamy-colored walls with book-filled niches. This floor includes three double bedrooms, each with an en-suite shower room. One bedroom has access to a small courtyard with external steps to the first floor, another is straight ahead, and the third has independent access to the street.
  • First Floor: Accessible via external steps, the main floor features open-plan communal areas filled with natural light, enhanced by white-painted floorboards and light linen curtains. The sitting area, furnished with white-upholstered sofas and armchairs, showcases a unique canvas of Marilyn Monroe and a shape-shifting mobile. The heart of the home is the cutting-edge kitchen, with a central stainless steel-topped workstation, bespoke dark wood cabinetry, and top-spec appliances. A large reclaimed wood dining table and a striking blue painting of Samos complete the dining area. Adjacent is a second sitting area/TV room with a deep, voluminous sofa that can double as a single bed, opening onto the terrace.
  • Mezzanine Floor: An elegant staircase leads up to the mezzanine floor, overlooking the dining area. This floor includes a sitting area and TV room, which can be used as a single bedroom, and the main bedroom with an en-suite shower room and an extra in-room shower.

Outside Villa Gaia:

The first-floor communal areas open onto a small terrace with ingeniously designed double-decker seating scattered with cushions. A walkway connects this terrace to the second living area, with steps leading down to one of the street gates.

The rooftop terrace is the highlight for al fresco living, perfect for early morning yoga and pre- and post-dinner drinks. Furnished with well-cushioned seating, the panoramic vistas are phenomenal: the 11th-century Monastery of St John the Theologian, the white-washed houses of Chora, the southern headland of Patmos, and the sparkling blue waters of the Aegean stretching to the horizon.
