Kastelli Blu - SEA, Greek Island accommodation
Kastelli Blu - SEA, is a beautiful Greek island holiday house for rent on Kalymons Island. A modern Greek villa recently renovated by an interior designer, this is one of Kalymnos' few absolute waterfront holiday houses available for short or long term rental. Not only is the interior of the house beautiful, there are incredible views from this European holiday villa as it is built on elevated land allowing for exhilarating views of the Aegean sea and Telendos island. With a path to the sun-bleached rocks and water from the house, the limestone mountains behind the house for the ultimate in privacy, and quiet, the stage is set for an idyllic Europe Holiday and Greek Island Escape.
Kastelli Blu - SEA is a Greek holiday house designed in the Hellenic Modern style, a blend of the traditional Greek architecture with Asian and Mid-Century references. A modern yet comfortable Greek island villa for your vacation, with oversized, covered outdoor balcony areas is perfect for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and a perfect spot for your unforgettable sunsets and private Greek island accommodation.
Few Greek island houses for rent are located in such a convenient spot. The villa is ideally situated in the climbing belt and is located directly below several climbing sites whilst only a short distance to other climbing areas near the villages of Panormos, Skalia and Emborios. Kastelli Blu - SEA is an ideal Greek island accommodation choice option for climbers who wish to have an alternative experience to the basic studios and would like to experience real Island living in a Greek island holiday house. It really becomes your home away from home. Live like a local and enjoy the swimming within 5 minutes of your Greek island villa either at Kastelli beach or the swimming platform beneath the ruins of Kastelli Castle. The water is crystal clear and invigorating any time of year.
The unforgettable and panoramic views of the mountains and the blue of the Aegean sea will stay with you long after you leave. Living in a modern, Greek island home allows you to fully experience a true haven on one of Greece's most natural and authentic islands.
The area of Kastelli is visually spectacular. From the limestone cliffs to Telendos island opposite and the just visible ruins of Kastelli castle, the area marries beauty and history like no other on the island. There are a handful of tightly held waterfront properties in the area and it is rare for one of these to come up for sale. Although the house was in disrepair, I could see it had good bones and was begging for someone to bring it back to life. It was something I was compelled to do..
The view from the house is arresting. I absolutely can't get enough of the wide and long verandah/terrace. Mornings and sunsets are picture perfect. Spectacular sunsets and the sound of waves crashing is food for the soul. I have designed the house so that it super comfortable for 2 - modern furniture with greek and Asian accents. I have ensured that we have excellent bathroom amenities (either Korres, L'Occitane, Bulgari or Como Shambhala), blue tooth sound dock and comfortable places to sit. It's heaven and we have many returning guests.
If you wish to escape the rat race, visit Kastelli Blu. Spend your evenings bathed in the rays of the sinking sun on the magnificent balcony. It was a privilege to spend our holiday in this boutique styled house. Kalymnos is a lovely little island, very Greek, very friendly, very welcoming. One tip, take plenty of books and sink into a very slow paced way of life - brilliant! Ah! unless you drive around Porthia - hold onto your hat, close your eyes and drive!

Rock Climbing on Kalymnos Island

Kalymnos is easily reached by a direct flight from Athens (50 mins).
You may also fly to Kos International Airport and catch a ferry across from Mastihari port (20 mins). Hiring a car or motor bike is advisable so that you can enjoy all that the island has to offer however, a local bus service runs from the main port right through to Kastelli and Emborios 3 times daily for your convenience.
Kalymnos is one of Greece's most historic, rugged and beautiful islands. The locals are known for the good humour and friendliness and are proud of the island's sponge diving history. Today Kalymnos is known as one of the world's best rock climbing destinations in the world.
Apart from exploring the port of Pothia (the hub of Kalymnian daily life), the island offers pockets of quiet, beaches with tavernas or isolated spots for couples. A 5 minute trip from your Greek island villa accommodation is Myrties. Take a 5 minute ride on a fishing boat and you are on Telendos island - a perfect day trip for lunch, climbing or a visit to the naturalist beach.
Your Greek holiday villa will allow you to enjoy the array of activities that Kalymnos has to offer including rock-climbing, diving (courses for both are available), hiking, bike riding, walking, exploring or soaking up rays on one of its many beaches.
Kalymons itself is the perfect island for couples wanting to unwind and relax, those in search of an adventure or for families seeking a safe and friendly environment for their children – this is Greek Island Holidaying at its’ best.
