Nestled away in a quiet area of the enchanting mountain village of Asklipio, this is a unique traditional stone built property with a very modern twist.
This elegant village house has been lovingly renovated by its current owners to provide comfortable and stylish accommodation.
New for 2018 we have an arrangement with a nearby hotel that guests of The Mandolin can use their outdoor facilities which comprise of lush gardens surrounding a spectacular pool (both kids and adult) and a toddler play area. Also a delicious snack bar serving all the traditional greek delicacies. The hotel is located a short 2km from our house.
This really is something special. Just inland from Kiotari, up a winding mountain road, is the village of Asklipio which maintains traditional Greek life.
Every Saturday the tradition of fresh baked bread is kept, and you will find all the old ladies baking their bread in their outdoor wood burning ovens.
The village also boasts the oldest Christian church still in use on the island which was founded in the 11th century AD. The village has its own museum, supermarket & cafes.
Only 2km down the mountain you will find the resort of Kiotari and the vast expanse of beach, restaurants, shops.
Golf: Afandou Golf Club is about 40 min drive. Club and cart rental is available. 18 hole green fees are around 35 Euro in the Season.
Walking Holidays: A paradise for keen ramblers; directly behind the house are some beautiful walks. Also popular with cyclists.
This traditional home has such charm and character with stunning views of the valley and the sea.
We have taken great care and pride in what we have achieved in a village that has not been spoiled by developers trying to build the next luxury hotel.
You definitely will experience the real Greek way of life here. The house is in a quiet and serene area of the village known as The Vrisi, which translates to the faucet, as there is a fresh-water source that runs from the mountains continuously and the water is ice cold and drinkable. The locals use it to refresh themselves and believe the water has many healing qualities.
*There is also free unlimited wireless internet access throughout the house.
