Kriton is a great family villa with private pool and just above the waterfront
Villa Kriton is one of four villas situated in a quiet position on Paleros Bay. The villas have been cleverly designed so that each is totally private and cannot be overlooked. From its elevated position above the other villas, Villa Kriton commands exceptional views over the bay to the mountains beyond.
The property is on three levels. On the ground floor level is a comfortably furnished open plan living room with well-equipped kitchen and large glass doors leading out onto a spacious terrace with views of the bay below.
On the upper level is a wonderful master bedroom that has been stylishly decorated in charcoal greys, stone and wood. This bedroom has a large en-suite bathroom with shower and walk-in dressing room. Glass doors lead out to a very private balcony with exceptional views over the bay. On this level, there is also a 2nd double bedroom also with its own en-suite bathroom with shower. The exceptional feature of this bedroom is the huge windows that frame perfectly the bay below. At night, you can lie in bed watching the moon over the sea and hear the waves lapping on the shore below.
The lowest level of the house has two further bedrooms each with ensuite bathroom - one bedroom with double bed; the other bedroom with 2 single beds. There is also a guest WC.
The property is stylishly furnished and well equipped with WIFI internet, i-pod docking station, TV and DVD as well as air-conditioning throughout.
Outside, there is a very spacious teak terrace running the length of the property with large outdoor dining area with in-built seating area, as well as an outdoor living area with in-built sofa with plenty of cushions above the swimming pool. Very comfortable teak loungers are positioned just above the pool where guests can relax whilst enjoying the quietness of the surroundings. At night, this pool area is beautifully illuminated so you can relax by the pool in the warmth of the summer nights whilst listening to the gentle drift of a fishing boat below and at sun-down the sea and surrounding hills turn to a vibrant pink.
There is a sandy beach approximately 30 metres from the villa and with only a few houses on this side of the bay, the beach is usually quiet even in July and August.
The village of Pogonia is a short distance and hosts a bakery, mini-market and tavernas. The village is uphill so car is needed.
The main town of the area is Paleros and this is on the far side of the bay about 4kms away. Here there are supermarkets, shops, tavernas and cafes including the Yacht Bar which has umbrellas and very chic loungers on the beach with WIFI access from your lounge chair. In the evenings, the sunset from Paleros is spectacular. Only 2kms away is a water-park offering lots of fun for the children as well.
This is a very cultured area of Greece with most of Byzantine Greece lying at your doorstep. Within a day trip are the Monasteries of the Airâ at Meteora, the Byzantine lake town of Kastoria, the lake town of Ioanina with its little island which is steeped in Byzantine and Ottoman history, the mountain town of Meteora known for its excellent cheeses and the entire mountainous region of Epirus which is stunning with its old stone bridges, pristine nature, and medieval villages of Zagoria which are an absolute must-see if visiting this area. In addition, the villa is easily accessible being a short drive from Preveza airport.
This is an ideal villa for families wanting to find a quiet location off the beaten track but with plenty to see and do in the area.
