Above the Clouds
Above the Clouds is probably one of the most unique properties in Greece. The property is perched high up on the cliffs above Myrtos beach with magnificent views down the coast of Kefalonia to the village of Assos.
A unique property in an incredible setting.
Above the clouds is located on the coastal road between Agia Efimia and Fiskardo. The road winds its way along the cliff tops passing Myrtos beach and the village of Assos, two of the highlights of this beautiful island. Between these two famous landmarks the road bends, and perched on a ridge jutting out to sea 'Above the Clouds' is poised magnificently within this stunning landscape.
Walking through the gated entrance, the sense of privacy within the property is apparent. One is struck immediately by the uniqueness of the architectural design and interiors, from the contemporary lines of the building to the dark metallic paintwork combined with floor to ceiling glass and sliding windows to take in the breathtaking views.
The main living area features a central fireplace surrounded by built-in divan sofas covered in ethnic style fabrics that soften the starkness of the charcoal grey, metallic paint work. The modern styled kitchen includes a traditional wood-fired oven as well as a sophisticated array of modern appliances suitable for a property of this distinction. The kitchen is a great place for cooks to entertain whilst guests enjoy each other's company in the elegant dining area.
To the right of the main living area is a TV/chill-out room which is divided from the living area by a large glass window. This can be screened off and used as a bedroom if required but functions best left as the 'chill-out zone' that was originally intended in the house design.
To the left of the living-room area is a double bedroom with en-suite facilities that benefits from large, sliding glass windows which lead out to the first of many outside levels. On this level, there is an elegant seating area with in-built benches with colourful pillows and scatter cushions.
On the upper level , there is a master bedroom suite with double bed and impressive metal fireplace There is an en-suite bathroom and dressing area, as well as a reading desk and private terrace. On this level, there is also a second double bedroom with separate bathroom area. Large floor to ceiling glass windows take in the spectacular view.
To the rear entrance of the property is a lovely guest house furnished similarly to the main house which contains a bedroom with a single bed and en-suite bathroom facilities. To the front is a smaller guest house that can accommodate an extra guest.
The outside of the property is equally impressive as the interior with the crowning feature being an altar-esque, infinity plunge pool seemingly offering the bathers up to the gods! From here one can relax above the clouds to one of the most awe-inspiring views in the Ionian Islands - 270 degree views uninterrupted over miles of coastline right out to the infinite horizion.
Below the pool, a path leads through a profusion of indigenous herbs and plants along the ridge until three throne-like chairs are discovered and beyond, a stone hideaway with a day-bed to relax in surrounded by the immensity of nature.
This is an ideal property for a select party of friends wanting to indulge in their own perfect paradise above the clouds!
There is no need to dream of paradise since this is the most unique and special property that we have seen and would suit someone who appreciates the finer things in life.Above the Clouds is probably one of the most unique properties in Greece. The property is perched high up on the cliffs above Myrtos beach with magnificent views down the cost of Kefalonia to the village of Assos.
