Our Villa in Porto Heli is a stylish family summer house, full of light, colors & natural beauty. The 180 degrees amazing sea & island view, the beautiful garden & the big swimming pool, create an atmosphere of relaxation, completeness & "peace of mind" to the visitor.
The Villa is ideally located on the top of a hill, however, only few minutes away from beautiful beaches, nice restaurants, groceries, etc. For those who like activities and & travel, many beautiful & historical places can also be easily reached by car or boat from Porto Heli.
Although the house was designed following the lines of the traditional mansions of Spetses, the experience refers more to Italian countryside.
The Villa is a 2 story building of 140m2 in total, lying on a 1,000m2 lot. The house is built on a heel overlooking the port of Porto Heli & the island of Spetses as well as the Saronic gulf. The magnificent view, one of the main advantages of the Villa, is evident from all around the house.
The ground floor hosts a fully equipped kitchen (together with a large kitchen table) & the living room with a fireplace, in an open-space layout and a countryside style. A WC is also available. The ground floor provides access to the garden from various places and ample light enters the area through several openings. The front terrace has a beautiful marble dinning table, while on other sides of the house, additional sitting corners are there to facilitate relaxing times in various times of the day.
On the second floor, 2 double bedrooms & 1 twin can sleep up to 6 adults (a baby bed is also available if needed). The two double bedrooms have access to a a large terrace with magnificent "cockpit like" view. A bathroom and a small warehouse are also available on the floor. All rooms have ceiling fans for the hot summer nights (much better and healthier than air conditions).
A private parking is available next to the house's entrance, hosting up to 3 cars.
The garden, mainly covered by lawn, is full of flowers & trees. It is being supervised throughout the year by professional gardeners. A beautiful patio, covered by flowers, is set on the center of the garden providing the perfect lunch and dinner setting. Additional corners allow for relaxation under the stars. Next to the patio, a built-in barbecue (with a lemon tree next to it ;) is available.
The Swimming Pool
The swimming pool, lying in front of the house, is 70m2 (12mx6m) with gradual depth. Next to the pool, sunbeds, accompanied by large umbrellas, allow for relaxation and sunbathing. At night, internal lights make the pool even more impressive. While swimming, one can also enjoy the beautiful view. An outdoor shower is also available next to the pool.
The house is fully equipped and operational. A non extensive list includes:
2 double bedrooms & 2 twins
1 bathroom & 1 WC
fully equipped kitchen & dishwasher
TV (not suggested...)
HiFi & WiFi
Air condition on ground floor
Ceiling fans at bedrooms

As a traveler, i feel very warm when i get sincere hospitality and this is what I try to do as a host as well. I think contributing to people's happy times is rewarding and deeply human ;)
This is a very beautiful home with loads of character. If you are expecting cutting edge technologies, this isn't for you but if you are looking for a beautiful, traditional villa with magnificent views , a wonderful big , well kept pool and a host that has your well being in mind , then you have a perfect place.
We travelled there with our two daughters , six and eleven Years old. The girls loved the place , there was loads of space in the garden to play and the pool was a magnet for them. I loved having my swim early morning and late at night, the pool is large enough to give the adults the space and also has a shallow part at the front half for the not so confident swimmers.
The villa is very well equipped to enjoy a break by the sea. The host left food items for us to enjoy and we really felt at home with all the books and music CDs. They even opened their bar for us to enjoy while we are there. ( Nice to have a glass of your favorite tipple by the tool admiring the view).
The only suggestions I would make to the host is to add an Air Conditioning unit in the hallway, on the upstairs level, to keep that part of the house cooler, as when we were there the weather temperatures did soar and had a heatwave, so the ceiling fans couldn't cope and it would have been handy.
I`m sure they are sufficient though if there is no heat wave !
The area of Porto Heli and the surroundings have excellent clean waters and perfect snorkeling opportunities. The villa is situated just a sort drive ( 5 min ) from the port and it is a great base for exploring the surrounding villages and towns.The food around the resort is good quality and loads of organic produce at very good value for money.
We very much enjoyed the fresh fish straight from the boats by the harbour , excellent quality and good prices.Also try the local oranges, they might not look the part but they taste great and make great orange juice !
Overall , a great break and we all enjoyed our time in this Porto Heli Greek home. Thanks Costis.
