Rental Home
Eleni’s Stately Home has been built with great care on the family’s home grounds. It is a destination which combines the class of a renovated mansion and the dreamy environment of the village. This summer turn away from the busy touristy places in exchange for a quiet retreat, where you will have a chance to meet with the locals, who still live their traditional lives. Stress of daily life, traffic and tension are instantly replaced by serenity and a pace that will send you back in time to a forgotten life revolving around relaxation. Here, you’ll have a unique experience that enriches body and soul. Gaze upon the wide horizon, breath the fresh country air perfumed with the scent of wild growing herbs and relax among colours and perfumes… Layout The size and space arrangement of Eleni’...Eleni’s Stately Home has been built with great care on the family’s home grounds.

Here, you’ll have a unique experience that enriches body and soul. Gaze upon the wide horizon, breath the fresh country air perfumed with the scent of wild growing herbs and relax among colours and perfumes… Layout The size and space arrangement of Eleni’s Stately Home, make it ideal for big families or groups of friends, as it can accommodate up to nine people, while its design ensures total privacy and comfort! Outside Area The serenity of the village makes the high walls that surround this property fairly unnecessary, but to guarantee the utmost privacy, it features a romantic and spacious courtyard of outstanding beauty, hidden from the sight of anyone passing by. In Eleni’s Stately Home you most certainly enjoy staying outdoors! This truly beautiful house has an amazing swimming pool 1.4 meters deep, which dares you to refresh yourself anytime you wish and offers peacefulness and calmness. Furthermore, beautiful flowers make the terrace even more appealing and the surrounding big trees offer shade during the mid day heat. The ample outdoors sitting and dining areas and barbecue facilities at the terrace provoke you to avoid the interiors and try al fresco dining! Also, a small garden inside the property, provides fresh organic vegetables for your meals! From the courtyard, an external stone-built staircase leads to a decent sized terrace on the upper floor. A wooden pergola offers partial shade and a small arrangement of garden furniture allows guests to retreat from the rest of the group, if preferred. Ground Floor The ground floor of the villa is L-shaped. Entering the villa, you’ll see the fully equipped, open plan kitchen with the adjacent dining area. Moving on, you’ll meet the living room area with its open fireplace, which creates a unique atmosphere. On this level you’ll find one double and one twin bedroom, both with en-suite bathrooms. All rooms of the ground floor have doors that offer direct access to and from the back of the courtyard, providing privacy and undisturbed sleep for all parties. First Floor From the terrace, guests enter the open plan living area that consists of a small -but very tastefully decorated and fully equipped- kitchen, a dining table for four guests and another bathroom. The living room area consists of two comfortable sofa beds and a lovely loft-type bedroom with a double bed. Property Notes: - Welcome basket included, courtesy of the owner. - Housekeeping, towels and linen changes twice a week. - Sun beds and umbrellas available. Pool towels provided. - Pool and garden cleaning twice a week. - Baby cot and high chair available if needed. - Air-conditioning in all bedrooms and living room area is included.
