COZY HOUSE WITH SUPERB VIEW

Pireas Villa Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

Poros Thea Villa is a jewel of pure and sophisticated architecture: a 100 square meters, one -level cozy house, surrounded by gardens, in white and blue decoration, perched on a hillside with breathtaking, panoramic views over the sea and Peloponnese.

The location of the villa (Askeli) is one of the best on the island of Poros: on one side it offers calm, serene isolation, mainly due to the pine forest that surrounds it, as well as the view over the sea, and on the other side it is only a very short distance from Poros town.

Surrounded by mediterranean-style gardens, Poros Thea Villa is designed for relaxation and has a minimal-style décor that adds to its zen, cinematographic atmosphere. The feeling of sitting on the veranda watching the sun melt inside the sea while listening to the wind blow, is just impossible to describe with words.

Poros Thea Villa sleeps up to six people.

-bedroom 1 (double bed & bedside tables & closet)

-bedroom 2 (double bed & closet)

-living room with fireplace, 2 couches (one of them double bed) / sofas

Routes (distances)

5 minutes by car to the Askeli beach

10 minutes by car to Poros town

The nearest supermarket is 300m away.

Since the villa is on a cliff it would be preferable to rent a car. Nevertheless, distances can also be done by walking.

Poros Thea Villa is an ideal, romantic hideaway all year long: you can choose between the crazy Greek summer vibe, the warm autumn quietness, the savage winter splendours and the colourful springtime reverie.

Information on Poros

Beautiful, romantic Poros island has maintained its authenticity. Poros town is a lovingly preserved historical little town with its buildings protected by cultural heritage laws. It's natural and architectural beauty has inspired a number of poets and writers. Poros' unique mixture of intellectual, urbane, and rural culture with its strong affinity for music and dance can be felt everywhere, whether strolling through the narrow paths of Poros town or simply relaxing in one of the many little cafes and bars that dot the seaside.

How to get to Poros

The island of Poros is situated in the Argo-Saronic Gulf, 32 sea miles from Athens’ Piraeus harbor, and at its nearest point in only 200 meters distance from the Peloponnesian mainland.

This means that the island can be comfortably reached by sea as well as by land, and thus is never cut off due to bad weather conditions. Arriving at Athens “Elefterios Venizelos” airport you can choose between the airport shuttle bus X 96 or a taxi to bring you to Piraeus main harbor. The schedules for ferry boat and hydrofoil/ catamaran vary due to season. Information and on line booking on Hellenic seaways website. The classic ferry boat, which transports passengers as well as vehicles, offers a romantic sea trip with intermediate stops at the ports of Aegina and Methana. The journey takes about 2,5 hours and costs 13 Euro/person approx. The faster hydrofoil as well as the comfortable catamaran boat ride directly to Poros in about one hour’s time, cost is 23 Euro/person approx. In case you travel with your own car or motor bike, a ferry boat will set you over from Galata every hour between 7.00 am and 22.00 pm daily. In summer schedules are every 30 minutes. Ticket reservation is not necessary. There are public bus connections (KTEL, phone service 14505, in Greek) between Piraeus and Galatas and as well as between Nafplio and Galata.

How to get around Poros

Poros in fact consists of two smaller islands, connected via a small bridge: Sfairia island with Poros town and the pine clad Kalavria island. Together they cover 31 sq km and have a coastline of 42 km. Vigla is its highest peak with an altitude of 358 meters. Public transportation offers two bus lines, both starting from the central square on the harbor promenade. With “Neorion Line” you can explore the south west coast line with the beaches of Cochylia, Neorion, Love Bay and the Russian Bay. The “Monastery Line” drives along the south eastern coast with the beaches of Askeli, Panagitsa, and picturesque Monastery beach.

Small boats connect Poros with Galata (every 10 minutes), the charming Alikes beach, underneath the Lemon Grove, and - upon demand - Askeli beach. The ferry boat to Galata is connecting the island with the mainland in a hourly rhythm, from 7.10 am to 22.10 pm daily. In summer schedules are every 30 minutes. Taxi service includes cars and boats, both working on a 24 hour base, with an emergency service for the late night hours only.

Activities in Poros

• Poros offers a variety of beaches, each with its own distinct advantages and easily reached by bike, bus, or the inexpensive watertaxis.
