Set in a quiet, peaceful, unspoilt area - ideal for swimming and walking
The house is set in its own olive grove on a quiet hillside overlooking the sea. This is a newly built property designed to be light and airy but constructed in traditional stone style to keep cool in the summer. The upstairs is large, open and spacious with a kitchen, a dining area and a seating area around the log fireplace. The large balcony has stunning sea views.
The two bathrooms and the two large bedrooms are on the ground floor with French windows opening onto a stone terrace under arches. There is an extensive olive grove behind the house (including a swing) so this a great place for children.
A secluded beach is a 10 minute walk along a track adjoining the property while the seaside village of Livadi is a 20 minute walk (or 5 minute drive). The rear of the house has beautiful views of the Mount Parnon range so this is an excellent base for a walking or birdwatching holiday. Arkadia is a very traditional part of Greece and the local villages are well worth visiting.
Local Area: The house is a short walk to a secluded beach down a quiet track adjoining the property. Alternatively a 5 minute drive takes you to the unspoilt, seaside village of Livadi which has two good tavernas.
Although there is a regular bus direct to/from Athens, a car is recommended for getting around the area.
The larger towns of Leonidion and Tyros offer shops, banks etc and are both a 15 minute drive away - Tyros to the North, Leonidion to the South. There are several very traditional villages nearby which are well worth a visit.
This is one of the most unspoilt parts of Greece and has a variety of scenery from quiet pebbly beaches to spectacular mountain walks (the Mount Parnon range overlooks the house). This makes it especially suitable for those who enjoy walking or birdwatching but will also suit visitors who just want to relax on a quiet beach.
This property is ideal for those who want to get away from it all and who would like to see a very traditional part of Greece.
Other facilities and services: The owners will arrange a 'meet and greet' and if required can do a basic shop before your arrival so that essential foodstuffs are waiting for you (just let us know what you need). An information pack is provided with details of local amenities including maps of walks in the area. Beach towels, beach mats, lilos, board games, books etc are all available in the house for the use of guests. Please note that TV reception is very poor in this area but there is a collection of DVDs and guests are invited to bring their own favourite DVDs.
A great base for sightseeing: The location of this house in Arcadia makes it a perfect base for sightseeing. Many popular attractions can easily be visited in a day trip from the house including Mycenae, Nafplion, Nemea, Corinth, Mystra, Monemvassia and many lesser known sites such Megalopolis, Lerna, Tyrinis and Yeraki (the owners, Nigel and Wendy will be pleased to advise). A little further away but also accessible from the house are the world famous theatre of Epidavros, Olympia (home of the Olympic Games) and Nestor's Palace.

Livadi is nestled on one of the last unspoilt pieces of coastline in Greece. The area is not traversed by any major roads and no one comes through here on there way to anywhere else. You do not need to battle through crowds on to a ferry, or wait for a table at the taverna, or try to find a quiet spot on the white pebble beaches. This is Greece as it was. Where donkeys carry the seasonal crops; olives, carobs, and oranges. Where the only sound is the birdsong and the wind in the trees. Where the mountains run to the sea and both change colour as the sun touches them giving us a new view every moment. This is an ideal spot for someone looking for peace and light and air and who wants to to see traditional, unspoilt Greece. The village is a great base for mountain walks and is a short walk down a track to a quiet stretch of coastline with excellent beaches. Livadi is midway between and 15 minutes' drive from the larger towns of Leonidion and Tyros.
