A classical 1914 villa in Abruzzo has been transformed into a holiday retreat with typical Belgian restraint.
Brussels architect Tom Thys refreshed this Trigno Valley country house with a plaster-toned scheme inspired by the original stonework. The building has been renamed Aristo House.
Thys has designed an incredibly spare space where all practicalities are concealed behind the scenes, giving the living spaces room to breathe. Two double bedrooms with integrated shelving and lighting look out over the mountainscape and down to a pristine garden, where a rectangular pool spans the panorama view. They share a soothing bathroom with a circular window facing to the treetops. A wood ladder accesses a mezzanine hideaway.
The villa sleeps five guests and is currently listed for short-term rentals on Holiday Architecture.
