Fishing with the local fisherman is an opportunity to spend the day out at sea and whatever the catch of the day may be you are able to take it home and a local chef will prepare it for you.
We were spoilt rotten when we visited this house – lunch by the pool with glorious views across the sea. This glorious estate has absolute privacy and yet sits on 150m of prime Greek coastline. The road down to the house is lined with oleaner & lavender, the smell in the evening is wonderful! Approach the house through an arbour of lemon trees which opens onto a courtyard planted with lavender. So much thought has gone into the planting around the house.
It has its own stone jetty which means direct access to the sea & there are sun beds right down by the sea which is perfect for people who like a little peace away from the hustle of the pool.
The house has 6 ensuite bedrooms. The bathrooms are hewn from rough stone, polished tiles, stylish mirrors, soft linens & fluffy towels come as standard.
The estate is Eco-friendly – solar panels heat the water. There is a beautiful vegetable garden of 1,000 square metres, all the produce from the garden are used by the cook.
By the pool are some beautiful wooden benches with white cushions, great for aperitifs, for those who love a cocktail in the water, there are benches and a table submerged!
