The cottage has a very pretty entrance with well-tended plants in urns which line the path and borders. The raised pool terrace is surrounded by mature trees providing welcome shade when the sun is at its hottest. There are steps up to the pool lined with olive trees and plant pots containing fragrant rosemary.
The interior has a cosy feel, enhanced by the sloping pine ceiling and a wood-burning stove, used by the owners in winter. The kitchen has pine cabinets and a good-sized dining table and chairs. The compact living room has two easy chairs and a low table as well as a well-stocked library of paperbacks.
Up a few steps is a landing with an exposed stone wall and attractive old wooden furniture. A door opens out onto the front of the cottage where there is a pergola draped in pink bougainvillea.
The large double bedroom has an iron bedstead and wooden wardrobe and dressing table tastefully painted in pale green. The bedroom also has air-conditioning.
Accommodation: Door leads into open plan kitchen/diner/living room. Off this room is the shower room. Up a couple of steps to the hall and the double bedroom and small spare bedroom are off the hall. The gardens to the front have a raised area for the pool and sitting out areas around the pool and the villa.
“We loved our week in May at Villa Nicoletta. The garden and terrace were full of fragrant spring flowers and our daily walk to Loggos through the olive groves was a delight (even more fun returning with torches and fire flies to light our way!) Thank you.' Chris & Terry
