This is a lovely villa which has been built with a lot of care and attention to detail. It also has plenty of open space for children to play. The property is just a four-minutes drive from the nearest beach.
The houses have mesmerising view of the Porto Heli harbour and the island of Spetses islands, and - when the weather is good - of the other side of Peloponnese. They also have air-conditioning and their own bathrooms, kitchens, living rooms and courtyards, which makes them perfect for large groups of friends. They also share a swimming pool (please not that it has no shallow parts), a beautiful garden, a BBQ and a very spacious parking lot. A third, smaller guesthouse is also available in case there is a need to accomodate another couple.
The top-hill house has two rooms and can accommodate four to six people, as there are two bedrooms and there are also two sleeper sofas. The house is furnished with wooden, hand-crafted furniture and includes a bathroom with a bathtub and a kitchen that communicates with the spacious unified dinning and living room. This open, high-roofed space also benefits from a rustic fireplace and large French windows. At the front of the house there is a private paved courtyard, half of which is roofed and is furnished with a garden table and chairs. There is also a small barbecue space at the back of house.
The other house comes with the added benefit of having the swimming pool in front of it. It is very airy and accommodating. The front of the house consists of French windows that allow the residents to feel as if they are sitting outside all year long. The main space consists of an open white kitchen, a living room with a dinning table and - uniquely - a master bedroom. There is also a smaller bedroom with a bed and a bunk. In the fully-equipped bathroom there is also a washing machine. Overall, the house can accommodate five people, especially families with children.
In the main courtyard in front of this house, apart from the swimming pool, there is also a big barbecue, a dinning table that can accommodate up to eight people and a bamboo lounge.
There is also a smaller guesthouse which has a bedroom, a bathroom and a small, but fully equipped kitchen. It can accommodate a couple. Even though it is a smaller house that only profits from a side view of the sea, the wooden hand-crafted furniture, the seascape paintings on the wall and the roofed paved courtyard add a special character to it.
A high speed internet connection will also be available to both houses. The house by the pool also benefits from cable television (NOVA) and a Hi-Fi radio/CD player with mp3/Computer input with speakers in the courtyard, which allow for the creation of a magical atmosphere during the night.
The houses can also be rented separately. Please contact us for further details.
We hope to meet you in person soon and we feel confident we will make you feel welcome and help you enjoy your stay. Please contact us if you have any questions or need additional information.
Porto Heli is an excellent destination for families with children or for adults who enjoy fun holidays away from the crowds. The trip from the airport lasts less than three hours. It is a predominately residential area renowned for its warm sea, its small taverns and restaurants and its beautiful harbour with the cafés and the the tourist shops. There are also water sports schools and an open-air cinema with all the year's blockbusters in their original language which we hope it will open this year as it always does. Delicious seafood can be enjoyed in the nearby village of Koilada. Any facilities not available in Porto Heli can be found in the nearby town of Kranidi (health centre, doctors, boutiques etc.) which is only a twenty minutes' drive away. From Porto Heli you can visit by car the area of Hermione and seaport town Nafplio or take a boat to the picturesque island of Spetses. The islands of Hydra and Poros are also easily accessible by jet-foils. The ancient theatre of Epidaurus is also only an hour and a half away drives away and if you are lucky, you may even catch a performance of an ancient Greek play!
The area may be wonderful during the summer, but it also offers an amazing scenery and a mild climate ideal for winter holidays and appropriate for pensioners and people who want to escape the big city during spring, winter or fall.
