Overview

About the property

Stylish summer house, with beautiful garden, big pool and magnificent view

Our Villa in Porto Heli is a stylish family summer house, full of light, colors & natural beauty. The 180 degrees amazing sea & island view, the beautiful garden & the big swimming pool, create an atmosphere of relaxation, completeness & "peace of mind" to the visitor.

Although the house was designed following the lines of the traditional mansions of Spetses island, the experience refers more to Italian countryside.

The Villa is ideally located on the top of a hill, however, only few minutes away from beautiful beaches and Porto Cheli port where you will find nice restaurants, coffee shops, groceries, etc. Although most people prefer to spend most of their time in the Villa, we strongly recommended that you visit some of the beautiful and historic places that are easily accesible from Porto Cheli (e.g. the islands of Spetses and Hydra, the ancient theater of Epidaurus, Nafplio, the first capital of Greece amd many others.)

The Building

The Villa is a 2 story building of 140m2 in total, lying on a 1,000m2 lot. The house is built on a heel overlooking the port of Porto Heli & the island of Spetses as well as the Saronic gulf. The magnificent view, one of the main advantages of the Villa, is evident from all around the house.

The ground floor hosts a fully equipped kitchen (together with a large kitchen table) & the living room with a fireplace, in an open-space layout and a countryside style. A WC is also available. The ground floor provides access to the garden from various places and ample light enters the area through several openings. The front terrace has a beautiful marble dinning table, while on other sides of the house, additional sitting corners are there to facilitate relaxing times in various times of the day.

On the second floor, 2 double bedrooms & 1 twin can sleep up to 6 adults (a baby bed is also available if needed). The two double bedrooms have access to a a large terrace with magnificent "cockpit like" view. A bathroom and a small warehouse are also available on the floor. All rooms have ceiling fans for the hot summer nights (much better and healthier than air conditions).

A private parking is available next to the house's entrance, hosting up to 3 cars.

The Garden

The garden, mainly covered by lawn, is full of flowers & trees. It is being supervised throughout the year by professional gardeners. A beautiful patio, covered by flowers, is set on the center of the garden providing the perfect lunch and dinner setting. Additional corners allow for relaxation under the stars. Next to the patio, a built-in barbecue (with a lemon tree next to it ;) is available.

The Swimming Pool

The swimming pool, lying in front of the house, is 70m2 (12mx6m) with gradual depth. Next to the pool, sunbeds, accompanied by large umbrellas, allow for relaxation and sunbathing. At night, internal lights make the pool even more impressive. While swimming, one can also enjoy the beautiful view. An outdoor shower is also available next to the pool.

The house is fully equipped and operational. A non extensive list includes:

2 double bedrooms & 2 twins

1 bathroom & 1 WC

fully equipped kitchen & dishwasher

washing machine

TV (not suggested...)

Fireplace

HiFi & WiFi

Air condition on ground floor

Ceiling fans at bedrooms

Ask for anything not included and is important to you.

If you decide to visit us, i ll be happy to help while planning your trip and give local hints n tips with regards to isolated beaches, places to eat and sights you shouldn't miss.

Some of the things to do include: 10min walk from the port of Porto Heli where numerous restaurants, cafes, bakeries and shops are available. Daily excursions to the famous islands of Spetses & Hydra, either by sea taxi (5 min to Spetses, 20 min to Hydra), or by normal (cheaper) boats. Ermioni, a very nice place for an evening or night dinner tour is just 15 min by car. Visit to the ancient theater of Epidavros (45' minutes drive)or the historic & picturesque Nafplion, the old capital of Greece (1hr drive). If you are interested in specific water sports (e.g diving, water skiing, sailing, wind surfing), those are also available in Porto Heli. However, you can always relax and enjoy the Villa ;)

A stylish and luxurious villa!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent part of our honeymoon here and it was truly a delight.

The tranquil garden affords cooling shade and the terrace offers sweeping views to enjoy whilst dinner my al fresco.

Inside the Villa is luxurious and spacious, but also feels somehow like a home.

We can't recommend it highly enough and I will return...

A lovely home with bags of character...

  • 4 of 5

This is a very beautiful home with loads of character. If you are expecting cutting edge technologies, this isn't for you but if you are looking for a beautiful, traditional villa with magnificent views , a wonderful big , well kept pool and a host that has your well being in mind , then you have a perfect place.

We travelled there with our two daughters , six and eleven Years old. The girls loved the place , there was loads of space in the garden to play and the pool was a magnet for them. I loved having my swim early morning and late at night, the pool is large enough to give the adults the space and also has a shallow part at the front half for the not so confident swimmers.

The villa is very well equipped to enjoy a break by the sea. The host left food items for us to enjoy and we really felt at home with all the books and music CDs. They even opened their bar for us to enjoy while we are there. ( Nice to have a glass of your favorite tipple by the tool admiring the view).

The only suggestions I would make to the host is to add an Air Conditioning unit in the hallway, on the upstairs level, to keep that part of the house cooler, as when we were there the weather temperatures did soar and had a heatwave, so the ceiling fans couldn't cope and it would have been handy.

I`m sure they are sufficient though if there is no heat wave !

The area of Porto Heli and the surroundings have excellent clean waters and perfect snorkeling opportunities. The villa is situated just a sort drive ( 5 min ) from the port and it is a great base for exploring the surrounding villages and towns.The food around the resort is good quality and loads of organic produce at very good value for money.

We very much enjoyed the fresh fish straight from the boats by the harbour , excellent quality and good prices.Also try the local oranges, they might not look the part but they taste great and make great orange juice !

Overall , a great break and we all enjoyed our time in this Porto Heli Greek home. Thanks Costis.

About Costis Paikos

As a traveler, i feel very warm when i get sincere hospitality and this is what I try to do as a host as well. I think contributing to people's happy times is rewarding and deeply human ;)

Why Costis Paikos chose Porto Cheli

The Villa is located in Porto Heli, a natural bay on the southern Peloponnese Argolid coast opposite Spetses and Hydra. Its proximity to them makes Porto Heli a magnet for the yachting set. Porto Heli is about 190km from Athens (2 hrs) by road or 55 nautical miles from Piraeus Port. Water sports, swimming, calm seas, child-friendly beaches, great tourist facilities, are some of the things the place has to offer. Most importantly, Porto Heli acts as a base for exploring the magnificent historical sites of the Peloponnese, Nauplion, Mycenae, Epidauros & Monemvasia, as well as the high-class & stylish islands of Spetses & Hydra. The food in most restaurants is traditional Greek, including fresh fish, local vegetables & gourmet meat recipes. It is one of the highlights. The climate is also great, with lots of sun and low humidity.

What makes this villa unique

Magnificent view, great energy, great style and beauty!
