Hermosa Pacific Home
A MODERNIST TROPICAL HAVEN
From France to Costa Rica, from Marseille to Santa Teresa… A distance of more than 5000 miles and at the end of the journey there is the Villa Riviera. This is the dream project of a Provençal couple that fell madly in love with the resplendent nature and the astonishing ocean view of the Nicoya Peninsula, one of only five “Blue Zones” on the planet. They decided to devote themselves to this secluded paradise nestled between Nicaragua and Panama, so once back in Marseille, they designed an ideal living space and then imagined a new life that moved to a different rhythm. The result is a tropical retreat equipped with all the modern comforts where the clean, simple style of the 1950s is a transcendent blend of the chic and the vintage. Amid the perfect fusion of colors and styles, there is time to breathe and to become reacquainted with silence. This is a turnkey furnished villa that can be your next paradise home or steady rental income.
Poised above the Pacific Ocean with its infinite horizons, this house is a celebration of the balance between the interior and the exterior. The structure is exquisitely spaced between two floors with patios and balconies reaching into the surrounding gardens and rustling palm trees. It features exotic woods and pristine whites that are enhanced by fresh and invigorating colors: blue, green, emerald, sun yellow… The property of 300 mt2 of living space offers a large living room, an open-space kitchen to share local delicacies, and three rooms with private Italian showers. The spaces feature simple and efficient ergonomics, a spectrum of natural light from sunrise to dusk, warm but sophisticated materials (teak, steel, polished concrete, rattan, cotton...), and a collection of sublime objects and made-to-measure furniture that evoke wellness and serenity. The Villa Riviera is inspired by the architecture and savoir-faire of Palm Springs, Miami, and the Côte d'Azur, accentuated with occasional hints of Italy. The harmony of a different era, elevated by a contemporary perspective…
