Kos Villa Rental Photos and Description
3 bedrooms each with shower. Sleeps 6.
Villa Primavera is a simple but pleasantly decorated traditional Greek house in Asomatos, Kos, 1,000 ft above the sea in a very quiet and secluded location away from the crowds. It has 3 unconnected twin bedrooms (each with ensuite shower room) kitchen, living/dining room and 2 terraces. All rooms have terracotta tiled floors, and the bedrooms large fitted wardrobes and wooden beamed ceilings. Very thick walls and large fans mean the bedrooms can be kept cool at night.
In front is a large grass area beyond which the hill drops away allowing a spectacular view from the house of the sea, Turkey and nearby islands. The house is situated beyond the end of the road.
Asomatos is a quiet traditional rural village with real Greek life and a centuries old church. In the area surrounding the house are hens, goats, birds, butterflies, trees producing wonderful figs and wild fennel. In the evenings there is a perfect view from the terraces of amazing sunsets followed by the gentle emergence in the dusk of the star-like lights of Turkey, and Pserimos and Kalymnos islands.
Kos is of great historical importance and interest. Apart from the famous Asklepion Hospital, where Hippocrates taught, there are many archaeological sites in the main town containing ruins and mosaics. Fishing boats and luxury yachts line the picturesque harbour, which is bordered by a C15th Crusader fortress. The market square boasts a museum. A minaret and Italianate buildings reflect the Turkish and Italian occupations.
Tigaki, its long white sandy beach and restaurants, are 12 minutes away by car. It has a sailing centre with Hoby Cats and Lasers.
Abundant spring water means that the island is unusually verdant. Known as the Market Garden of the Aegean, it produces high quality fruit and vegetables, and now has several vineyards. Two of them are on the slopes below the villages.
You will need to hire a car or scooters. These can be rented at Tigaki. Cars can also be rented online for collection at the airport. Direct flights go to Kos from England, Germany, Italy, Holland, Scandanavia and many other European countries.
