The house is finished to a standard rarely seen on small Greek Islands with no expense spared nor detail overlooked.

A whole row of filters result in water that is pure enough to drink - something not usually seen on Greek islands.

The villa has a long, private, driveway and a double garage. This property enjoys privacy and superb views and is just a few minutes drive from the most popular beaches and their tavernas. It is, however, only a 10 minute drive, on tarmac roads, from the harbour town of Patitiri.

The beaches at Leftos Ghialos and Tortzi Ghialos are only minutes drive away. Each has tavernas on the sea front open from May to September and offer shade, cool beer and great food. It would be difficult to find fault with location and services.
