Greek Getaway



Time and time again, I come upon this Greek house on Marie Claire Maison, and fall in love with the rustic simplicity of it all over again. It's bare bones way of living makes for such a more interesting and quality vacation (although many would probably disagree with me on this). It gives the feeling of camping, by the ocean, with the house solely providing shelter and it's patrons providing the color. The translation I received from Babel Fish wasn't too good, but the one phrase I did get which summed it up completely, was that being here is "to live as much outside as inside". Sign. Me. Up.

Gorgeous! So bare bones and lovely. My Plucky Pioneer partner, Jane, has a house in Greece and I'm dying to visit it. In my head I imagine it to be pure loveliness like this one. What I would give to be in that hammock this very second! XO

Erika-- this house is stunning! I've never read Marie Claire Maison, but I think I need to start.
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! I'm so glad you did because it led me to yours. I was going through your archives, and, wow, your posts have the most beautiful photos! I can't wait to see what you post about next.
PS-- I love last year's Valentine's Day post. Julia and Paul Child's Valentine's Day cards crack me up.
XO fallon

So rustic and beautiful. What I wouldn't do to be dining at that table right now!

I love Greece, such a gorgeous country.

So often you see homes like this in Europe on HGTV's International House hunters & it always gets me thinking. Would one be willing to trade all our luxurious pleasures to live so simply, yet divine? I think I would. Thanks for the stunning images.

Cheers!
