Cosme – Paros, Greece
Designed as a natural extension of the fishing village of Naoussa, in clean, bold whitewashed lines, Cosme is for the discerning traveller. The brief was for a timeless and authentic Cycladic experience, and the strong connection with the culture and traditions of Paros shines through. On the shores of a crystalline crescent bay, with a village-style layout and meandering paths, it is full of local and wider Mediterranean elements and native planting.
An eclectic mix of classical and modern Greek artwork and sculptures decorate both inside and outside with colours evocative of the Aegean. It is cosmopolitan and laidback and comes with its own beach club.
