About Carina Minos

Bi-coastal, Greek-American family with backgrounds in architecture, real estate, beauty, health and wellness, special events and charitable giving.

Carina Minos purchased this villa in 1985

Why Carina Minos chose Ahaia

We were looking for a space large enough to host our big-Greek family and friends, so that we can all spend wonderful summer holidays together.

What makes this villa unique

When I think of my time at the Villa, I'm always remembering those unique moments of peace and stillness that I'd feel when sitting on the balcony taking in the soothing sound of the crashing waves and staring at the glistening sea - especially when the water was so calm and beautiful, that it looked like it had an iridescent silver glow. Then all it took was a quick glance over my shoulder to enjoy the majestic view of the luscious green backdrop of the nearby mountains.

Nights were also exciting, when laying on the roof, or by the sea, looking for constellations and making wishes on shooting stars...

The Villa is also ideally situated in a central gateway location, with close proximity to Athens, to many sacred archeological sites throughout Greece, access to the Northern and Southern parts of Greece by car, and to many points of interest on the East and West coasts, including the islands of the Ionian and Aegean seas, and even ferry services to neighboring Italy, and the rest of Europe.

Villa Terpsithea is centrally located on the northern tip of the Peloponnese, offering guests unrivaled access to all points of Greece, and beyond. This 'gateway' location is ideal for those traveling throughout Greece - or Europe - and want a home base.

There are many Historical and Archaeological sites, in the surrounding areas, that you can visit within one day:

- 10 mins to Egio, where you can visit the Miraculous Holy Temple of the Virgin Mary (Panagia Tripiti), that was built inside a cave, circa 1550 A.D.

- 30 mins to the famous Rio-Antirrio bridge, the world's longest multi-span, cable-stayed bridge. It crosses the Golf of Corinth near Patras, linking the town of Rio on the Peloponnese, to Antirrio on mainland Greece by road; this means that you can literally drive from the Villa directly to the Ionian Islands -Cephalonia, Zakynthos, Corfu...

By Sea:

From Villa Terpsithea, you can easily cross the sea by speedboat to visit the Temple of Apollo at the Archeological site of Delphi, one of the most famous sanctuaries in all of Greece.

The ancient town is located at the foot of Mt. Parnassus and about 6 miles (10km) from the Gulf of Corinth. In the era of mythological Zeus, Delphi was considered the center of the world and was home to famous oracle of Apollo, and to the Panhellenic Pythian Games. In 1987, Delphi was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

By Road:

You can visit Ancient Corinth, the Sanctuary of Asklepios and Theater at Epidavros, Sparta and Mystras.

Take a scenic ride to Ancient Olympia to see where the original Olympic games began. This sacred site is still important to the current Olympic Games, as the celebration ritual which sparks the flame for the games is held at the Temple of Hera.

These are many more cultural and recreational activities to explore.
