Located on the outskirts of Preveza, ‘Meraviglia Slow Living’ by Block722 is a hotel complex of luxury suites overlooking the silvery blue Ionian sea towards the islands of Lefkada and Paxos. The seaside retreat is designed to coexist in harmony with its natural surroundings, featuring a blend of local materials, Greek furniture and Scandinavian design influences. The Athens-based architecture studio has arranged the hotel’s seven luxurious, yet low-key and low-footprint suites on two levels: the ground level, which includes the living area that connects to the exterior pool; and the upper level, which includes the bedroom that offers guests unobstructed views towards the sea.

SEASIDE HOTEL SUITES overlooking Greece’s Ionian Sea

 

‘Meraviglia Slow Living’ is situated on a plot of eight acres, on an under-the-radar stretch of Greece’s coastline near Preveza. The complex of seven luxury suites is developed by Block722 with refined simplicity and minimalistic architecture that blends into the natural landscape. Surrounded by a lush garden of rosemary and lavender herbs, the retreat’s outer stone wall has been constructed using rocks from the area while in the courtyard, aged cobblestones are spread between the gardens.

 

The suites, which vary in size, are all equipped with their own infinity private pool overlooking the Ionian sea. In order to assist with maintaining a pleasurable room temperature, their roofs are planted with herbs and greenery. Some of the rooms feature second outdoor living spaces, while others come with a 150 sqm private garden and outdoor fireplaces. A lot of the features inside the light and spacious interiors, such as the mosaic floor, are handmade and all the materials are carefully chosen to allow for a carefree barefoot living.
