Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Gavalochori - Villa Prinolithos
4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10
Originally built in 2001 and renovated in 2011, the Prinolithos villa stands proudly on the highest point of these privately owned grounds. The stone and gravel decorated driveway leads the length of the way from the property's green gate to the villa's front door passing a small cedar tree forest, well-kept gardens with rose-bushes, herbs, flowers, vineyards and lush lemon and pomegranate trees.
The villa, which can accommodate up to 10 people, is made up of an open-plan kitchen and living area, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a large outdoor furnished balcony, an independent poolside guesthouse (sleeps four and has its own small kitchen and bathroom), built-in barbecue and an infinity swimming pool.
A 200 year old mill-stone, used in the past to grind wheat and other grains, decorates the villas main entrance door and sets the tone of what lies just beyond. The traditional, village-style open plan kitchen and living room with fireplace instantly make you feel at home. Large wooden doors lead out to a very spacious furnished balcony with views to the swimming pool, olive trees and the beach of Almyrida.
On this same level one will find two bedrooms and one bathroom with a bathtub and a washing machine. The one bedroom has a double bed and balcony doors which lead out to the large balcony overlooking the pool, the other has two single beds (which can be joined) and with balcony doors leading out to the villas entrance patio.
The third bedroom (maisonette-style) is upstairs. Within this room, wooden stairs lead up to two single beds on the ondas level; traditionally decorated with wooden floors, high wooden ceilings, a chest, quaint windows, a computer area and another bathroom (with shower). For here too there is a balcony from which to enjoy the views.
At poolside level, villa Prinolithos also features a guesthouse; ideal for those who wish to holiday with you while still maintain privacy away from the main house or even for you to make use of this extra kitchen, living and rest area- an extra convenience by way of its proximity to the swimming pool.
This poolside guesthouse has an independent entrance, an open plan kitchenette and living area with two sofas (which can be made up as two single beds), a slightly separated sleeping area with two single beds and a bathroom with shower.
Use of the guesthouse is always a given (regardless of the number of persons staying at the villa).
The uniquely shaped infinity swimming pool, decorated with mosaic and stones collected painstakingly by the owners themselves and surrounded by almond and oak trees, measures 50sqm with depths from 1.1m to 1.9m. The areas around the pool include the furnished terrace, outdoor shower, pergola, sun loungers and umbrellas.
An interesting characteristic of Prinolithos villas is the grape press located on the villa's grounds. This is a large permanent stone structure where the grapes are placed into after harvest and the owners stand on the grapes to begin the process of making village wine and grape essence.
There are also a couple of mountain bicycles available so that you may ride along the mountain pathways.
