Nestled in a small cove, just 30 meters from the sea, overlooking crystal-clear water and sandy shores, this new spacious villa offers 240 sq.m. of living space, with four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a playroom, a spacious living room, a roofed balcony, a large veranda and scenic terraced gardens, which lead straight down to the water's edge, where a gate divides the property from the sea and the flat rocks below, suitable for sunbathing and swimming. One can also continue on to the beautiful sandy St Thomas' Beach, which is a mere 3 minutes walk from the property. To ensure a tranquil and exclusive holiday experience, only two villas adorn our 8000 sq.m. property, and each is built on a different ground level and on a safe, gated, private community in an exclusive area.

One can also continue on to the beautiful sandy St Thomas' Beach, which is a mere 3 minutes walk from the property. To ensure a tranquil and exclusive holiday experience, only two villas adorn our 8000 sq.m. property, and each is built on a different ground level and on a safe, gated, private community in an exclusive area. From here, one can easily avoid the crowded beaches and the stressful commute, since a semi-private coast is located only a few meters away, a particularly privileged location as it provides shelter from the wind and practically guarantees calm seas during the summer. Enjoy swimming and snorkeling in Avali Cove, a 'natural swimming pool' ! The villa's interior arrangement is 'upside down'! The living room, the kitchen and one of the double bedrooms with separate bathroom are on the upper level, while the rest of the sleeping quarters are on the lower level - a traditional Greek arrangement. There is also a playroom, equipped with a table tennis table, on the lower level. We want our guests to enjoy our villa as their 'home away from home'. So, apart from very personal items, we've furnished it to the same standard as our own home. All bedrooms are air-conditioned and have ample storage for clothes and personal belongings. No expense was spared in the construction and furnishing of this lavish house. Predominately modern in style, it boasts large glass doors to take full advantage of the stunning views, which can be enjoyed from all rooms. Enjoy the semi-private coast located just a few meters away. The area offers the perfect balance between relaxing isolation and easy access to the more cosmopolitan part of the island. There are no hotels in the surrounding area, and the few private villas are situated far enough to maintain an intimate atmosphere. There is a tavern and a beach canteen within walking distance , while a short drive will bring you to several restaurants and mini markets. Check out our exact location !!! Type our coordinates on G-earth: 38° 6'54.08'N, 20°35'54.93'E Ideal choice for a group of friends, a large family or two sharing, looking to enjoy the sun and the sea secluded from the crowded touristic areas of the island. The grounds surrounding the villa can provide an elegant backdrop for a wedding party or special event of up to 100 guests. For large parties or events, advance arrangements are required.
