Sea, nature and simplicity of design combine to create the perfect zen-inspired retreat.
This is an ideal luxurious retreat for guests wanting to find a beach-fronted villa, off the beaten track with total privacy in an undiscovered part of Greece.
Villa Neraida is a fabulous beach-front villa that is completely private, contemporary in style and only steps away from the bluest of azure seas. With four double bedrooms each with en-suite bathroom, great outdoor entertainment area and its own zen-inspired atrium, it is a perfect solution for a grown-up family or group of adults.
The villa has been designed architecturally to harmonise perfectly with the surrounding landscape. As you approach the villa from the pine-scented forest behind you see the green sedum roof just above the glistening blue sea. Coming down the path, herbs mingle with the scent of the pines before you then reach the main entrance to this two level property.
The ground floor level has a contemporary style open-plan living room with designer kitchen complete with granite work-surfaces and cooking island. There is an oak dining area for 8 guests as well as dishwasher, large fridge/freezer and wine fridge. On this level there is also the utility room with washing machine. Large glass doors slide almost the length of the space opening out onto a fantastic outdoor covered dining area for 12.
The first floor is accessed either internally via the staircase or by an external staircase. It features a contemporary glass zen-inspired atrium that opens from the villa on three sides where there is a lounger, table and olive tree with a cascade of brightly coloured bougainvillea that are perfectly positioned for meditation but equally, if meditation is not your thing it is a beautifully looking space to sit and relax.
All four bedrooms have double beds and their own en-suite bathrooms. The master bedroom has glass sliding doors leading to a fantastic verandah overlooking the sea with sofa, sun loungers and table. The 2nd bedroom also has a balcony overlooking the sea whilst the 3rd and 4th bedrooms have a view of the atrium.
The styling throughout is one of calm, simplicity and absolute comfort. The eco beds all have Cocomat mattresses. There is air-conditioning throughout as well as WIFI.
Inspired by the nature surrounding the property, the outdoor area harmonises beautifully with the pine-scented forest behind and the azure sea just below. The infinity pool (12m x 3m) features a decked area with sun-loungers and below this natural grass to the sea-shore. The surrounding plants are mostly aromatics – borders of lavender, rosemary, oregano and thyme. There is a barbecue area, outdoor shower and washroom. The outlook over the translucent Ionian Sea is breathtaking with the islands of Lefkada, Meganissi, Kalymos, Atakos and Onassis’s island of Scorpios rising in the distance. There is a boat with skipper available for hire for guests who would like to explore this side of the Ionian Archipelago.
The property is completely private and is within a very short drive to a small village with bakery, mini-market and taverna. The town of Paleros is 4kms away on the other side of the bay where there is an array of tavernas, shops and an excellent beach bar/restaurant. The island of Lefkada famous for its white sand beaches is only about 20 mins drive away and accessible via the causeway and bridge. For those interested in cultural days out, this is a good base to be able to explore the mountainous region of Epirus with its UNESCO world-heritage villages in the Zagori region; the Byzantine ‘Monasteries of the Air’ at Meteora as well as the Byzantine lake-town of Kastoria and the lake-town of Ioannina with its Ottoman architecture.
