Nothing could have prepared us for what a wonderful impact this house would have on our first visit. With a view spanning 270 degrees, this large family house ticks all the boxes. The old stone farmhouse and olive press are built in an idyllic setting in the hills among the olive groves with stunning views down to the sea.
The views are spectacular you can see the full mountain range in Albania and, on a clear day you can even see Paxos.
Very careful thought has gone into the colours throughout the house, calm blues and serene pinks sit alongside beautiful white painted furniture and glorious contemporary furnishings. The flooring is a combination of antique French flagstone and reclaimed pitch pine.
There are several different places to eat outside each commanding a more arresting view than the last. There is sun and shade, wooden or stone tables, comfy sunbeds, sun umbrellas and, of course, the pool!
The grounds have been recently landscaped by Jennie Gay who is well known on the island and has done an amazing job. They are brimming full of fruit trees including mulberry, peach, lemon, fig and orange.
It is the most delightful place to spend a lazy afternoon in the shade with a favourite book, away from the hustle of the pool or the bustle of the nearby beach. A long way from the next nearest property the outside buildings create what appears to be a small hamlet, sympathetically arranged and linked by a series of beautiful terraces, steps and gateways.
You will have such a wonderful stay in this house and will be dreaming of that view all winter.
