Description

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Southern Aegean - Vagia Residence

Charming Villa Offers Privacy, Beach Access by Foot, Fisheye Seaviews and Sunset

Vagia Residence, built on 3 different levels, is one of the most charming houses on the island thanks to its unparallel location and its traditional architecture.See our otherlistings for the possibility of renting a part of the house.

Located on the southern part of the island sitting on the edge of a two-sided valley estate between Kalo Ambeli and Vagia (Koutalas) Bays.

Vagia Residence is part of a 3-acre (12,000 sqm.) property that offers privacy .Built on 3 different levels reflecting a state-of-the-art restoration of the original structure of four (including a traditional stove) traditional stone-built agricultural residencies built in the early years of the 20th century. The interiors are furnished with emphasis on traditional elegance providing both style, simplicity and comfort for its guests. It is the outdoor areas though that offer sheer delight throughout the day. Its three level layout provides guests with multiple leisure alternatives and privacy escapes. There are four sitting areas to relax in. Two terasses ovelooking the Aegean sea and Vagia beach, two outdoor dining areas, one remote patio and a traditional oven and barbecue for outdoor meals.

Lower Level: Entrance yard with sitting/dining outdoor area, living-dining room, kitchen and traditional wood oven, guest bathroom, master bedroom and staff/children upper-lower berth room.

Middle Level: Courtyard with outdoor traditional wood oven, traditional kitchen work-top bench, two terasses overlooking the Aegean and a bedroom with its own guest bathroom.

Upper level: Terrace with sitting/dining outdoor area, and loft open space with kitchen dining-living room, guest bathroom and a loft double bed.

Guests are greeted at arrival and departure.

The location of the villa is ideal for land exploration both for the adults and the children. guests may spend relaxed time walking at dawn or in the evening either through the ex vineyard valley and old Vagia village down to the little chapel of Saint. Konstantinos and Vagia gorge or towards old iron-mining facilities and the beach of Vagia or alternatively down the hill through a private path to the isolated beach of seagull island.During late summer grapes and wild-fig picking walks in the neighbourhood present a wonderful exploration alternative.

The villa features unparalleled sunset views due to its south-west orientation, 5-minute drive proximity to the most beautiful yet unspoilt beaches of the island such as Vagia, Ganema, Kalo Ambeli beach as well as unforgettable star-watching experience at night due to its secluded, open air location.

The villa is only 5 km away from the port of Livadi on a crescent shaped bay. The sea front board walk at Livadi offers a choice of restaurants, lounge bars and coffee shops, while several grocery stores, bakeries, butchers, fruit shops and a pharmacy are within walking distance from one another. hora – the “capital" town of Serifos is a 10 minute car drive up the hill from Livadi. Chora is topped by the ruins of a 15th century Venetian castle. A stroll through the winding streets of hora with its cube-shaped houses will let you discover chapels and windmills perched precariously and offering breathtaking views of the island.

The coastline of the island offers a diversity of easily accessible sandy beaches (Kalo Ambeli, Ganema, Vagia, Agios Sostis -where the villa is located, Psili Ammos, Ag. Ioanis, Sikamia).

For those interested in hiking and exploring, there are several marked hiking paths which allow an inland discovery of the island with its many villages and monasteries. In the north of the island near the village of Galani, the fortified monastery Moni Taxiarchon (archangel), built in 1500, is run by a single monk. the monastery contains fine 15th century frescoes and rare byzantine manuscripts.

Vagia Residence, Serifos island

Serifos stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in Villa Vagia, I reckon it is the best place to be in Serifos, the view and the position are fantastic and the house has great external spaces and a lot of charme. It is on the best coast of the island, with the most beautiful beaches and repaired from the wind on the sun set side of the island.

the Villa has fantastic terraces, and for us was great as the house is divided in 3 blocks and we were one family, and 2 single friends. It is nice to be all together but also each one had his intimicy.

we will definitly return, great holliday and place to be for total relax.

great villa / fantastic holidays

  • 4 of 5

as a whole villa vagia is a fantastic space to spend your holidays.

positives:

- great exterior and interior design

- remote and fantastic location

- extra spacious space for 8 people

- super equipped

- very friendly and helpful owner and friends of the owner

- pet friendly (we had 2 small dogs and we didnt face any problems from the owner)

- fantastic view

- the villa expands in 3 different levels- you can have privacy even if you spend your holidays with a large group of people

negatives:

- almost no internet connection

- quite dangerous small side road that takes you from the main road to the villa (its not a problem if you own a 4x4)

- most of the mattresses were not in the most excellent condition and they need to be changed.

i totally recommend villa Vagia for summers holidays and i will definitely visit villa Vagia again for future holidays.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your great feedback. The 500m unpaved road from the main road to the house is now suitable for all cars as it is well maintained and paved in the beginning of the season. Moreover most of the mattresses have been replaced. Finally internet connection is now made available through mobile wifi modems which are provided by the host to the guest. Once again thank you for staying with us. Best Dimitris
