This property is a beautiful villa in the verdant landscape of Skiathos Island. It’s a simple, whitewashed, tranquil haven with crazily beautiful views out t
The property comprises a spacious villa of 260.3 sqm, used as a summer family retreat.
This property is quite simply one of the most exquisite houses on the island. The immediate coastline has remained miraculously virginal with its forests tumbling down to the sea. Nothing here needs to be overbuilt or fussy – the point of being in this house is to enjoy the sea and the surroundings.
The villa on Pounta has a large lounge, dining room, kitchen, office/study, toilet and a pergola on the upper floor; downstairs are three large bedrooms, all en-suite, with views over the Aegean. Also downstairs, there is a large dry store-room, a laundry room; and accessed only from an external door - a boiler room.
On a slightly lower level from the villa there is a swimming pool - 10 metres x 5 metres, a Pool House, with the pool filter room being under the pool patio. Outside of the south facing rooms in the villa there is a two-metre-wide patio running the length of the villa. There are numerous flower gardens, a wide variety of fruit trees, and lower down from the pool an olive grove.
The whole site is secure with wire-net fencing around the perimeter, with a substantial sliding entrance gate for vehicles, and an adjoining pedestrian gate which is double locked. When the villa was built, the first item was a water tank, which holds approximately 93,000 litres of rain water, which is collected from the roof of the villa. Till now they have never run out of water. Finally, there is 3 phase electricity.
This is the perfect summer house, or indeed a permanent residence.
Located in the Aegean Sea, Skiathos is a small and very green island blanketed by a thick pine forest. It gets very popular in summer for its wonderfully clean and golden beaches, the aquamarine waters and the scenic countryside. Most popular beaches in Skiathos Island are located on the southern side, while the northern side has more calm and secluded spots. Rocky outcrops at the end of the beaches make them perfect for snorkelling. Skiathos can be reached by airplane (daily in the summer) or by boat from both the Ports of Volos and Agios Konstantinos. (You can reach both ports by car. Agios Konstantinos is located at the "Agios Konstantinos" exit on E-75, 160km from the centre of Athens. Volos port can be accessed by taking the exit "Velestino" onto route 6, 307km from Athens and 181 from Thessaloniki).
