Peacefully and ideally situated on the outskirts of the village of Kypseli, only a ten-minute drive from the town and port of Aigina, this 4-bedroom property offers stunning views of the sea, sunsets, and nearby islands.
Borrowing from the rustic character and tradition of country houses in the south of France, the property makes an ideal 'artist's' house. Designed and built by Greek film and theatre director Stelios Pavlides, its calm tranquility offers the perfect place to finish your novel... or simply melt away the stresses of everyday life. Terraces on both sides of the house maximize sun exposure, while privacy is assured by the surrounding garden, fruit trees, and vineyard (our guests also receive a complementary bottle of the house wine!). The front terrace and yard also feature a barbecue and plenty of seating for meals, while the side lot provides parking spaces for 3 cars.
The ground floor contains four spacious double bedrooms, two at each end of the house; each end also has its own bathroom with bathtub. A large, connected space in-between contains a well-equipped kitchen, dining area, and living room with a large natural fireplace.
The basement, which includes a library and TV room, also comfortably sleeps three (ideal for friends and older children).
Fully equipped with washing machine, dishwasher, air-conditioning, fans, toaster, coffee-maker, hair-dryer, freezer, fridge, TV, telephone landline, and Internet connection.
Local amenities: 5 minutes by car from the sea, and from an excellent supermarket. 2-minute car drive or 15-minute walk from the village of Kypseli. Hospital, health centre, beaches, tavernas, and shopping all within a 10-minute drive. Please view the exact location on this map:
A note on wildlife: like many places in Greece, the area surrounding the house is home to a number of stray cats who will tend to come investigate when humans are in the house. Of these, only one is accustomed to entering the house when we are present. His name is Prince Edward (or just Eddie), and he is the son of our own cat, Lady Jane Grey, who lives with us in Athens. Edward is neutered, fully vaccinated, treated for fleas, regularly taken to the veterinarian, and is extremely friendly. If you are cat-friendly, we know Edward will make a charming addition to your stay.
Please note that we do not allow any of the other cats in the area to enter the house, though we will often feed them (away from the doors) when we're there. We will leave cat food available in the house should you wish to do the same.
