A wise division of spaces, with symmetry and use of neutral colors, have made the main body of villa Kalos, villa with pool and annex in the heart of Itria Valley, an apartment with five large beds, two bathrooms and relax room in A few square meters.

The spaces are designed and organized with class and wit as in a yacht interior.

A bright open space with a typical barrel vault, large windows that illuminate a dining area and a sophisticated kitchen.

A modern iron staircase connects the living area with 2 bedrooms set on two different levels. The main bedroom is on the upper level: on a mezzanine open on the living room, with study corner and bathroom with tub.

This detail is very sophisticated and classy and makes it a unique space from the small footprint.
