The first thing you feel is the silence tickling you into a sublime slow dance. Finally you stop, only to sway as softly as the buttercup yellow butterflies that grace the ancient Morna Valley with their fluttering kisses. Gazing protectively out onto the valley is Villa Amour, a magical five bedroom three bathroom enclave. With an annex that contains its own en-suite, this villa is ideal for all types of gatherings. Love has been poured into every part of its chalky white washed walls by the owners who fell for Armour the moment they saw her. Paying reverence to the enveloping emerald nature all around the interiors sing from a soothing palette of creamy matchstick and sand dunes golds. Raw sabina beams and terracotta floors all hold court to sumptuous elegant textiles while handmade ceramics and carefully considered artefacts delight the senses at every turn.
Outside living is a breeze here so take time and indulge in al fresco meal times all under a bamboo shade. Collect giant oranges from the nearby naranja stall for a healthy breakfast dose of Vit C, the perfect Yang to your evening cocktail Yin as you watch the glory of the heavens turn from pink to dusky blue at sunset.
See yourself moving languidly stepping out onto the dappled light of the courtyard and weaving in and out from the arched stone columns outside. Sun swept caramel coloured straw parasols flank the huge pool giving exclusive beach house vibes broken in their seriousness only by the uncontrollable and raucous laughter of your tribe. Watch the translucent waters splish splash in waves as your little ones jump in giggling with utter joy, their eyes shiny with the thought of adventures to come.
Escapades come easy here whilst Armour is secluded, it is centrally located and all roads lead to everywhere and anywhere easily on the island.

Make an entrance. A huge heavy door opens up to the main living room and after a day in the heat the cooling terracotta tiled floors are divine to walk onto. Linen white and stone hued sofas offer somewhere to sink into and just be. Raw beams, finca walls, hessian rugs and bloomy rattan lampshades harmonise and sing notes of nature. All is calm here.
Editorial perfection can be seen in the Mediterranean kitchen that echoes farmhouse chic. Simplicity reigns yet not without the necessary high specs of a fully functioning space.
Open plan shelves and a rustic chimney will have you lusting for the same in your home whilst the table and exquisitely crafted chairs need no more adornment than plates of locally sourced produce and the company of friends and family.
Surrender to the laid back bohemian vibes of the Island whilst you sleep swathed in light linens and sophisticated boutique worthy fabrics. Each of the five bedrooms offers a sanctuary of pared back luxury with views that unfurl over the countryside. There are three bathrooms and a further annexe with its own en-suite to choose from. The ideal solution for your favourite guests.
A portrait perfect landscape richly painted in all shades of green surrounds you in its vastness while pops of disco pink bougainvillea frame the entrance. Olive trees lay claim to the earth here and you can feel the gentle chatter of nature.
A light aqua pool flanked by the chicest straw parasols and loungers implore you to lie still and feel the sunshine soothe your body and soul. Al fresco dining is a joy with loved ones and the shaded daybeds invite you to just lay with a book and dream.
