Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Southern Aegean - Kastelli, Patmos

One of two units in large garden 5 min. from Skala center - exceptional views

Our house in the protected area of Kastelli, gives you the best of everything: central location, large garden, exceptional views, traditional furnishings and modern comfort.

Rebuilt with the best possible materials, using traditional techniques and local craftsmen, this unique stone house offers you the very best of Greek village life.

The house is located at the top of a hill overlooking the port of Skala and offers you majestic views of the ocean, the village and the traditional monastery of St. John.

The house has easy access by car, but we recommend the swift walk through the picturesque streets of the traditional township of Kastelli

The house is only 300 meters from the beach and about 6 minutes from the town Centre, but you are surrounded by 3000 square meters of traditional farmland with 100 year old pines and olive trees, making your stay quiet and rejuvenating.

The house consists of two separate units, which may be rented together or separately.

Both units have fully equipped kitchens and bathrooms, and secluded terraces.

The top unit, The old house, has a separate living room and two bedrooms sleeping 5 people. The lower unit, The farm house, has a combined kitchen/living room and a bedroom with two beds.

But since most of your summer living probably will be outdoors, we have made it easy to convert the living rooms to bedrooms so that The Old house may sleep 7 and The Farm House 4+ people.

There is also an outdoor bed, with mosquito netting, for those who want to experience sleeping under the stars.

About Arne Abrahamsen

I am living in Norway, 64 years old and working as a communications adviser. My wife is from California, so we also spend a lot of time in the US. I first visited Patmos in 1972 when I spent a whole year living there. Since then Patmos has been a second home both for the two of us and for our children and grandchildren. My dream is to little by little develop our property on Patmos as an integrated part of the village, with more houses, a central square, a vineyard trees and flowers. We will use the houses ourselves, but also want to share this oasis of beauty and tranquility with others.

Arne Abrahamsen purchased this house in 2008

Why Arne Abrahamsen chose Greece

Having spent more than 40 years visiting Patmos, my wife and I, 10 years ago finally decided that this is where we want to spend our retirement. We purchased what we think is one of the most spectacular properties on the island and are gradually building and rebuilding houses to use ourselves, for our friends and to rent. We are passionate about the island, and want to do our utmost to preserve and develop its traditional values and natural beauty.

What makes this house unique

The house is located at the top of a hill overlooking the port of Skala and offers you majestic views of the ocean, the village and the traditional monastery of St. John.

The house is only 300 meters from the beach and about 6 minutes from the town Centre, but you are surrounded by 3000 square meters of traditional farmland with 100 year old pines and olive trees, making your stay quiet and rejuvenating.

A beautiful house on a beautiful island

  • 5 of 5

The house is quite lovely, as the pictures show: simple in structure, beautifully furnished with all the amenities of a place to really live: an elegant and comfortable home, not just a base. It sits high against the saddle of the hill above the quieter part of the main harbour. The wide terrace has wonderful views and catches the breeze even at the hottest time of the year; it would be lovely to go again in cooler weather and enjoy the wood burning stove. We swam, explored the island, climbed up and down the steps into town, but also cooked and read and talked. A wonderful place.

Very good accommodation with beautiful views.

  • 4 of 5

Clean and well equipped it is a comfortable and welcoming holiday house and the view from the terrace is wonderful.

This two bedroom, one bathroom house is at the top of 92 uneven stairs. However for the less than energetic it is easy to get a taxi from the town.

Special place

  • 5 of 5

It was a great pleasure to stay in Arne's beautiful home. We perceived a great love for this place and everything reminds it.

I and my family are really happy to have discovered the island of Patmos in this special place.

Unfortunately, we could only stay a short time, but we believe we will be returning to Patmos and we would be happy to be your guests.

A perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Everything was fine, the house very clean, the host very friendly and caring. I'd like to recommend the house to everybody who loves to look at the sea and the habour of Patmos in the morning or evening from a spacious terrace. Everything was exactly like in the description.
