VILLA HELIDONI, KassiopiRef: 17749
Tucked away into the hillside above Kassiopi, this villa is in a beautifully private location and sits very naturally into its landscape.
With a winding, private driveway from the top of the plot, down towards the parking area and swimming pool, the whole approach to the villa is relaxing and very pretty. Several steps lead from the parking down past the swimming pool, to a lovely paved terrace with BBQ area and outdoor dining space. A few more steps lead to the front door, all constructed to take advantage of the rocky landscape and old olive trees.
The main house is on two levels, with the bright and airy sitting room and kitchen on the upper level to take advantage of the amazing views. Here the wooden ceilings are high, adding to the spaciousness, and the floors are polished wood. Large patio windows lead out onto a wide terrace, ideal for outside dining or just relaxing and absorbing that wonderful view. The room runs the whole width of the house, with the kitchen at one end, the dining in the middle and the comfy sitting room at the opposite end where there is a large open fireplace.
Also on this upper level is a large main bedroom, again with the exposed wooden ceiling and with an original fireplace, adding to the character and charm of the room. An ensuite bathroom is accessed from one end of the bedroom, but this is also used as the house bathroom as it has a doorway from the entrance hall.
A staircase leads down to a further two double bedrooms which share a pretty bathroom. As these rooms are on the lower level of the house they have a lovely cool feel to them yet are still light and bright. One of the bedrooms still has the original well in the room, whilst the other has a patio window leading onto another terrace enjoying that view.
The garden is beautifully planned to fit in to the landscape with lots of Mediterranean planting, fruit trees and olive trees. There are plenty of spots to choose in the shade, but of course the swimming pool has a spacious sunbathing terrace, surrounded by a low wall and hedges of rosemary.
In addition to the main house there is an annexe at the top of the driveway, previously used as an artist's studio but ideal for use as extra guest accommodation.
A truly beautiful renovation of an old stone property into a comfortable home.
