About the property

4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, Sleeps 8

On the top of a gently sloping hill, 4,5km away from Porto Heli, this newly built house is part of 2 neighboring independent and elegant villas on an idyllic 4,000 m2 plot (the second villa is not for rent, it is used by my family). Located in a quiet scenery, the house is overlooking the Kounoupi beach and its homonymous island with astonishing views of the islands of Poros and Dokos.

Villa Emmelia is designed by respecting the local architecture (use of local pebbled stone) with cotemporary, minimal, stylish and comfortable interiors. It consists of 3 levels.The 2 higher levels consist the main villa while the lower its guesthouse. The ground floor features an open plan kitchen with a sitting and a dining area around a fireplace. The kitchen is well equipped with all the necessary facilities, including a dishwasher, washing machine, microwave and filter coffee maker. The first bedroom is situated at a higher level (three steps only) from the living room along with a bathroom that gives a more private character to it. There is direct access to the outdoor spaces and to the swimming pool. It is possible, during your stay, to specify whether you prefer this room to be equipped with double or single beds. The master bedroom, on the upper floor, includes an en-suite bathroom and has access to a balcony with an amazing view and to a private terrace, ideal for privacy and book reading.

The spacious unified living and dining room opens up to a large covered terrace ideal for breakfast and home cooked meals with awesome views to the Greek landscape and to a complex of islands. This outdoor space links to an open and a covered section. The open section has a large swimming pool (length 13m, width 5m, max. depth 2.4m) along with a pool side shower which is perfect for sunbathing and for enjoying the breathtaking limitless view to the horizon. The swimming pool is exclusive used by the guests. This area extends to a covered section and comprises a protected sitting area for relaxation time and evening cocktails.

The Guesthouse, situated at a lower level than Villa Emmelia, benefits from the same astonishing view facing the sea and the islands. It is independent and autonomous as a whole. The spacious 80m2 Guesthouse can accomodate up to 4 guests. It consists of two bedrooms with a large bathroom and an open space living room with a kitchen - dining corner. Its outdoors covered terrace undoubtedly offers unforgettable and relaxing moments while enjoying an amazing view of the scenery. The access to the swimming pool and the outdoor spaces is immediate.

The Guesthouse will only be used given the number of guests. A reservation that exceeds the number of 4 guests will automatically be given access to the Guesthouse. Otherwise, the Guesthouse has to remain vacant.

It is ideal for families with kids, groups of friends or couples. Booking your vacation in Villa Emmelia and the Guesthouse allows traveling with friends and family and still having some private moments in the terraces of the premises.

The 2,000 m2 of gardens extend around the house, with pine trees, dafnes, myrtles, aromatic plants and shrubs.

Villa Emmelia & Guesthouse Amazing View With Pool
average rating of 5.0 based on 3 reviews

Absolute perfection!!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in villas and apartments all over the world. Our usual statement is "if we were renting out this property we would change......"

In the case of Villa Emmelia we couldn't find anything to criticise. The villa is absolutely amazing and if anything the description and photos do not do it justice.

The villa is located in the hills outside of Porto Heli in an extremely quiet location. The only noise was from the cicadas.

The villa is extremely well laid out with various outdoor spaces to enjoy the panoramic views across to the neighbouring islands. There were also plenty of covered areas to escape from the midday sun whilst still enjoying the pool areas.

The villa was extremely clean, very well equipped and comfortable throughout.

Danai and her mother, who lives in the neighbouring property, could not do enough for us. They recommended restaurants and places to visit, advice which we took and were very impressed.

Before we booked the villa, we were concerned about the proximity of the family villa next to the pool. In truth the pool area is extremely private and we barely knew that Danai's parents were at home. The positive side to this arrangement is that someone is on hand to help if anything goes wrong. We had an issue with working one of the fans. Danai's mother came around to look, realised there was an issue with the switch, called an electrician and had the issue resolved the same day. Brilliant service!

The villa is located outside of Porto Heli so a car is a must. However, it is only a 10-minute drive into the town where many restaurants and shops can be found. This may not suit everyone but it is definitely worth it for the peace and quiet. Plus those views!!

Danai was extremely helpful and efficient when we were considering booking the property. She answered all of our questions quickly.

All in all this villa is superb. Our experience was perfect from start to finish. We cannot recommend it highly enough.

We are always looking for somewhere to return to when we simply want to chill out and enjoy some peace and quiet. We have finally found this with Villa Emmelia. We would definitely return and hopefully we can do so in the not too distant future.

Danai, thanks for everything!

Great place and location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Danai's place! The villa is very new and clean, the pool is huge and the view from the pool is amazing. The owners live next door, but made sure we have our privacy. Danai has been very helpful explaining things to visit in the area. All in all - we had a great time!

This is the kind of place that probably all VRBO users hope to find one day (and want to keep for themselves).

100% PERFECTION! All details covered and relaxation guaranteed!

Apart from the house, the location is absolutely stunning. However not for those seeking mass tourism, cosmopolitan stirrings & nightlife...

We didn't mind AT ALL

Thank you Danai & Nikos

Porto Heli is set in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Surrounded by rolling pine clad hills, the village is situated on a vast bay, providing one of the safest natural harbors in Greece, which has been transformed into a miniature cosmopolitan port without having lost its traditional charm. It is also a paradise for water sport enthusiasts. With 18 miles of beaches & coves, there is always somewhere new to go for a swim or explore by boat. The mild climate, the unforgettable sunsets, the innumerable cultural activities, ensure that Porto Heli is a popular holiday resort throughout the year.

The lovely village center offers a wide variety of shops, tavernas, coffee shops and bars as well as services such as: banks, drugstore, smaller grocery stores, super market, open-air cinema and newspaper kiosks. There is a medical center located in Kranidi, 10 km away. Ski school, scuba diving, rent a boat services to nearby bays and beaches are easily available. The location is ideal for boat tours to Hydra, Spetses, Poros or Monemvassia or for car tours to significant archeological sites that are situated in the Argolis area. From the Sanctuary of Asklepius and the ancient theatre of Epidaurus to the Treasury of Atreus (tholos tomb) at Mycenae, this part of Peloponnese is also known for its beautiful seaside town of Nafplio and the famous vineyards of Nemea.

Villa Emmelia and its location, are both very special, and are ideal for sea lovers and people who are looking to escape the pressure of fast paced living. There are several beaches at a distance of 5 to 10 minutes’ drive such as Kounoupi, Limanakia, Agios Emilianos and Hinitsa.

Staying in Villa Emmelia guarantees tailored service, which allows guests to have a carefree stay. During your stay, Danai and Nikos will always be available; to assist you and to ensure you are having an enjoyable holiday.
