Villa Eleonorae has an incredible view and it gets the sun from morning until the sun goes down. A homely and comfortable villa, creating a holiday vibe in a wonderful setting. It is modern, yet in keeping with the local architecture. Named after the falcons that swoop over its elevated position above the unspoiled hill village of Glossa (only 10 minutes away with its shops and tavernas). Its secluded location feels private, despite its proximity to the beaches, the port, the Mamma Mia church and the village itself, and the villa is not overlooked by anything. The panoramic view takes in the islands of Evia, Skiathos and the Pelion and away to the mainland, as far as Mt Parnassus and closer to home down to the village of Glossa and its port of Loutraki. The villa itself is built by hand in the traditional style of the island, with open-beamed ceilings of chestnut and pine, wooden balconies and tiled roofs, complemented by a modern clean touch and up-to-date fittings and equipment. It is a truly unforgettable experience.
The main bedroom has a super king size double bed and an en-suite bathroom. The view through double doors looks out over the garden and beyond over the Aegean. The terrace outside leads to the garden and there are seats and a table there offering another place to relax. This light and airy room is decorated with paintings and it has a painted wooden ceiling. There is a full length mirror and plenty of storage space for clothes and suitcases. All the sheets, large pillows and towels are from the White Company. For the hot season there is air conditioning to cool you down.
A double door leads into the second bedroom which has two single beds that can be adjoined to make a super king size bed. It is colourful, light and airy and also has a painted ceiling. This bedroom also shares a similar view to the main bedroom and also has double doors leading out to a terrace with a great view to wake up to. The wardrobe is has ample space and there is also a full length mirror and air conditioning.

The house has been specifically designed to offer guests the maximum benefit of outdoor living. The hard wood veranda runs along two sides of the villa and faces south west.

Due to the situation of the property on the apex of a hill, and the steep slopes around the house, it is not suitable for wheelchair users, or indeed people with mobility difficulties. There are stairs inside and outside as it is a two storey villa. This is worth taking in to consideration if you are not accustomed to stairs. Car hire is necessary in order to get around and to explore , a Suzki Jimney is a good option. I can recommend a local car hire family run company which will deliver the car to the port of your arrival and collect from your departure port.
The private swimming pool measures 8x4m and looks out over the bay. It is located at the side of the villa on a split level. It has steps leading into it and a shallow and deep end. There are five wooden sun beds, low tables, umbrellas and a large cushioned bench. There is an outside shower and an orange tree at the far end of this area and next to it stone steps that lead up to the terrace above. The pool area is enclosed tastefully by railings, with a latched gate to restrict access by underage children. The property extends to 2.5 acres set out in terraces, gardens and trees, so providing guests with privacy and space.
