Newly refurbished traditionally built farm-house set in 5 acres (15,000 square meters) of mixed orange and olive trees, on the outskirts of the village of Kato Samiko. The house stands on a small hill surrounded by its orchards, and the entire property is securely fenced to give your pets and children a safe playground. The terrace has commanding views over the orchards and surrounding fields, and the garden has just been completely remade with a wide range of newly planted flowers and shrubs. The beach is a level walk of only 1500 metres, and the village has numerous eateries and a mini-market, all within easy walking distance. Villa Thea is perfect for family holidays, and as a base for sight-seeing trips around the Peloponnese.A well-known local artist, Elainie has decorated the property herself, giving a unique feel to the house.
Decidedly untouristy, the area around Kato Samiko is one of the best-kept secrets of the Peloponnesus. The beach is vast, stretching out over 100 km in an unbroken curve of golden sand, backed by sand dunes and pine forest, without any major developments or resorts-you can normally find your own private stretch of beach without difficulty. Ancient sites include Olympia (25 km), The Temple at Vassai (30 km), the hot springs and spa at Kaiafas (3 km), as well as a wealth of smaller archaeological sites including our own Acropolis, just 2 km away. Shop at local markets in Zacharo (12 km) or Krestena (8 km), or the city of Pyrgos (25 km). Mountain walks and superb cycling and mountain-biking routes abound, and island-hopping day-trips to Zakinthos or Kefalonia from Kylini (50 km) for those who wish to see more than just the Peloponnesus. Virtually all the main archaeological sites of Greece are reachable by car, with the new bridge across the Gulf of Corinth making even Delphi accessible.
