Contemporary style villa with private infinity pool, fabulous views, luxurious decor and many artistic touches.
Contemporary style property with infinity pool, panoramic sea views and within close proximity to beach
Villa Apollon commands the ‘view of the gods’ from its hillside position above Salandi Bay right out across a seemingly infinite view of the sea. This contemporary style villa has been beautifully designed with huge glass windows, precise stone-work harmonising with softly-sculptured cement features combining the best of traditional and contemporary Greek building techniques.
The property is on three levels. The ground floor level has a light and airy open plan room with huge glass doors that slide back maximising on the sensational views. There is a living area, elegant dining area and very stylish and well-appointed kitchen. Decor and furnishings throughout are comfortable, modern and stylish with artistic touches that add colour and joy to the house.
On the upper level are two very comfortable bedrooms. The master bedroom has a super king-size bed (1m80 x 2m) and ensuite bathroom with shower. The 2nd bedroom is a double/twin bedroom (also super king-size if double) with its own ensuite bathroom with shower. Both rooms have floor to ceiling glass doors and from the bed guests can look right out over Salandi Bay. All bathrooms feature the technique of ‘tsimentagonia’ – or softly sculpted concrete – which has been used to great effect.
On the lowest level of the villa is a large bedroom with double bed and single bed. There is also a separate lounge/playroom on this level with TV and DVD. In between these rooms is a bathroom with shower. These rooms have doors that lead out to a lovely patio and garden with a table and chairs.
Apollon is very well equipped with air-conditioning that can be controlled from every room; there are ceiling fans, a TV in each bedroom, TV and DVD in the playroom, dishwasher and washing machine as well as WIFI.
The grounds of Villa Apollon have been beautifully designed with lawns where children can play under the shade of large olive and carob trees. A meditative place to sit and take in the stillness and beauty of the surroundings is from the sculptured steps that rise from the house up into the hill and have a seemingly endless view over the pool and bay. There is a lovely outdoor dining area with large barbecue, and at the heart of the property is a stunning infinity swimming pool with sun loungers and large umbrella.
From the villa, a track leads down approx. 600m to a secluded cove with beach and crystal clear water. There is an excellent taverna on Salandi Bay about a 15 min walk away which is open daily during the main part of the season and at weekends at other times. The traditional village of Didima with shops and tavernas set in the hills above Salandi is about 10 mins drive away, and the pretty fishing village of Kilada is about 15 mins drive away.
The cosmopolitan marina town of Porto Heli is about 25kms distance where there is a larger variety of shops, supermarkets, tavernas and cafes. Porto Heli is also well-known for its watersports facilities which include water skiing, windsurfing and dinghy sailing. There are also boats for hire. For guests who enjoy historical and cultural excursions, the important archaeological sites of Epidavros, Mycenae and Ancient Corinth are all with easy driving distance as is the Venetian town of Nafplion. From Kosta harbour or Porto Heli, the island of Spetses with its upmarket restaurants, cafes and shops is just 10 mins across the bay by water taxi or Flying Dolphin.
For artistic and design-conscious guests seeking a tranquil place to unwind and relax after a long year, Apollon with its magnificent views and luxurious detailing is an ideal choice.

Our ten days staying at Villa Apollon can only be described as idyllic. Situated near the top of a hill the view is breathtaking - looking out over a bright blue sea and misty mountains with the charming harbour of Kilada just visible in the distance. The villa itself is absolutely fabulous - very modern but traditional at the same time. Everything works beautifully, from the powerful showers to the air-conditioning and the very well equipped kitchen. The house is full of light and feels spacious - there was plenty of room for us and our four children - aged 10 to 17. The infinity pool was an endless source of entertainment and pleasure- especially when it lit up for nighttime swimming! The outdoor eating and cooking area was fully utilised though we didn’t get round to using the outdoor cinema screen!!
At first the area seemed very quiet but we soon realised what a wonderful base it was for exploring. We had a day out on the gorgeous island of Hydra (jumping of the high rocks by the beautiful harbour is highly recommended) and then on Spetses (very pretty, though very busy in July) - the ferry for both was only half hours drive away and the ferry rides not much longer. Porto Heli was only twenty minuets away with its supermarkets and water sports, nearby Krandini has a lovely selection of smaller food shops and bars, Kilada has lots of tavernas and the amazing ancient amphitheatre of Epidavros provided culture! Just visible from the villa (lit up at night) is a huge cave where neolithic remains have been found - well worth a visit, even teenagers were impressed!
But really we didn’t need to venture far from the villa because at the bottom of the hill are a whole succession of beautiful white pebbled beaches, mostly deserted! It only takes ten minuets to walk to them and we spent many happy hours swimming in the crystal clear water, snorkelling and watching hundreds of amazing fish, as well as shell collecting. When we tired of our own company we walked to the tavern (a twenty minute walk from the villa) which has its own beautiful beach with a jetty and umbrellas and which serves fantastic local food. The tavern staff were so welcoming, we had great fun chatting to the very friendly locals. Spiros and Sophia were wonderful hosts, they were so helpful with everything and Sophia provided a delicious cake on our arrival together with a kitchen full of essentials (like wine and tonic and lemons!) At the end of our ten days we felt like we had had a truly wonderful holiday and we were very sad to say goodbye.

The Apollon villa was lovely and very well appointed. The area was a bit of a drive from Athens but the route directions were very good.
We will definitely recommend your site and Apollon in the future.

Thanks for your email. We had a truly amazing stay at Villa Apollon.
It is one of the most beautiful places that we have ever been to. Please pass on our thanks to the owners. I will send my bank details in a separate email from one of my daughter's addresses as this one won't allow it.
Anna Amstel arrived 17/07/2015
Thank you for your letter. Our stay was wonderful. The house is great and Sofia( the owner) is very kind and professional.
If we ever decide to spend another vacation in Greece we will definitely use you again (if you have property available.)
Unfortunately, you have no options at our favorite island of Patmos).
Thank you for organizing this vacation for us!
