From the outside, the compounds appear austere, with tile roofs tucked behind bamboo thickets and gray stone walls  etched with Naxi tribal patterns. But there is nothing understated about the villas’ interiors,  which boast full-size living rooms with huge flat-screen TV, plush master bedroom and gorgeous stone-floored bathrooms with big.
