HAS BEEN BEAUTIFULLY RESTORED AND OVERLOOKS VALLEY CULTIVATED BY THE MONASTERY

Symi Estate Rental Photos and Description

Mountain view,3 bedrooms, 3 bath/shower rooms, great terraces, great views

This secluded, highly sophisticated, two-house, walled property is rented as a single unit, and is on one of the most beautiful Greek islands.

Symi is about 40 kilometers from the island of Rhodes, and 5 kilometers from the Turkish coast. Its houses are neoclassic, and its port and architecture are amongst the most beautiful in the Mediterranean.

The property is 8 kilometers along the road, stretching along the backbone of this small island (14 kilometers long), and set above a calm and cultivated valley belonging to the monastery. The two houses are decorated to a very high standard; they have been featured in Architectural Digest and Elle Deco.

The English housekeeper can prepare light lunches to take to the seaside, and three dinners per week. A gardener maintains the grounds. There is mains electricity and very good phone and internet service.

The sea is transparent and warm, and small boats have access to the beaches. The terraces are great for entertaining.

Located on one of the most beautiful small Greek islands, not far from the island of Rhodes.

The night skies have more stars than one could imagine. A luxury vacation property decorated to a high level. Sleeps 6 plus housekeeper/cook (three bedrooms and bath/shower rooms). Has been featured in AD and Elle Deco.

My wife is greek and I have spent summers over several years on the island before returning. Our English housekeeper has been with us for about 15 years.

John Willis purchased this estate in 1986

This property had been abandoned dor 40-50 years and was rebuilt over the 5 years tp 1991. It's a magic setting and has been featured in Architectural Digest and Elle Deco. As Symi has become more sophisticated and the infrastructures have improved, access to the property had been facilitated.

The views either from the property over the cultivated (by the monastery) of from the road or from the cliffs are extraordinary and there is no noise.
