Along the borders of Endemico’s pool area, chic beige director’s chairs invite guests to sit, relax, and enjoy the scenery. "The view from the pool is like something out of the Hollywood hills, evoking the old movie set glamour," Couturier says. The restaurant and bar are perched nearby, also concealed among the rocky slope. All in all, "it's about midday naps, slow food, early evenings," says Couturier. "Balmy desert nights, star filled skies, wine by a terra-cotta fire pit. Natural silence. Endemico is an extension of this experience."
