About Izzy Brimelow

I live in the South of England but originally come from Edinburgh where I was brought up and went to University. The house has been in our family for 17 years, as the seasonal home of my sister and elderly father for much of that time, and much enjoyed by family and friends for summer holidays.

Izzy Brimelow purchased this villa in 2000

Why Izzy Brimelow chose Chalki

When he first came to see the house, Dad fell in love with the view from the balcony, and said "I want to spend the rest of my life here". Halki is an enchanting place, to which travellers tend to return, for its traditional unspoilt atmosphere, friendliness and tranquility. There are very few cars on the island, and no car hire or motorbike hire. You can swim in the clear waters of the harbour, with swimming steps a short walk from the house.

What makes this villa unique

Mouthouria is an exceptional house, one of the finest of the old mansions dating from the days of sponge-diving. We believe it used to be the home of the Turkish governor of the island. It never fell into ruin, like many others on Halki, so it retains its original antique painted ceiling, and was sympathetically restored in the 1970's as part of a UNESCO initiative. Since then it has been well maintained and improved, with a fitted kitchen and modern appliances, while keeping traditional features such as the wood burning stove.

average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews


  • 5 of 5

Villa Mouthouria is an historic building with lots of character and fabulous views. It's very close to the harbour, shops and restaurants and well placed for access to all the nearest beaches. We had a great time.

Car: not necessary

Halki is a traditional unspoilt Greek island, to the west of Rhodes. There are few cars and no car hire. Walking and swimming are the main activities, with boat trips in the summer season. A minibus visits the three main beaches, the ruined mountain village (Xorio) which leads to the crusader castle, and to the Monastery of St John up on the high plateau.
