Contemporary style property with infinity pool, panoramic sea views and within close proximity to beach
Clean, modern design harmonising with the natural beauty of its surroundings, with comfortable and luxurious furnishings and beautiful outdoor spaces.
Villa Artemis is a fabulous, contemporary style property which successfully combines elements of traditional Greek building techniques with an ultra-modern design. Here you find modern glass with lean, linear structures harmonising with softly-sculpted cement walls and finely crafted stone-work.
Artemis is located in an outstanding position with panoramic sea views over miles of coastline from the Bay of Salandi to Kilada and the private island of Livanou.
The property is on three levels. On the ground floor is a long open-plan room with fully-equipped kitchen, dining area and comfortable living area. Huge glass doors run the length of the space encompassing the fabulous views. On this level there is also a guest WC.
On the upper level are two 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. At night this is a lovely place to sit out on the veranda and watch the stars at night and with hardly any light pollution, the night skies over Salandi Bay are magical.
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, DVD and divan beds for 2 extra guests. 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. The furnishings and decor throughout are very stylish with unique artistic pieces that add colour and character to this contemporary home. The bathrooms have been designed with softly-sculpted ecological cement known as ‘tsimentogonia’ a technique found in many islands of Greece.
Artemis 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.
So much of Greek summer life takes place outdoors and at Artemis, the outside areas have been beautifully designed. A lovely outdoor dining area with barbecue featuring a beautifully made stone wall rather like a sculpture is situated to one side of the villa overlooking the lawns which are interspersed with old olive and carob trees. The infinity swimming pool (9m20 x 4m40) features a waterfall at one end, and around the pool area are stylish sun loungers and a large umbrella. In the garden are various places to sit and relax under the shade of a carob tree or have a gentle snooze in the hammock.
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 guests who want to enjoy the serenity of a relatively undiscovered bay but with the comforts of a stylish and luxurious villa with some good day trips out, Artemis is the perfect choice.
Very stylish contemporary villa combining elements of traditional Greece with an ultra-modern design, this villa has a fabulous infinity swimming pool, seemingly endless views over miles of coastline, and a secluded beach and excellent taverna are within walking distance.
Prices below based on 6 guests. Two additional guests can be accommodated at Euro 30/night per guest. Villa Artemis can be rented in conjunction with neighbouring Villa Apollon.

For those who may be considering to rent Villa Artemis, we have to say that it would be a mistake not too.
We rented Villa Artemis at the last moment this past August for a two week stay during the first half of August. With the issues we all had due to the pandemic, we thought that this summer would be a dull and uneventful memory for our family. However, by chance we came across this Villa and it so happened that our luck was shining, as we were able to book the Villa for two weeks at the very moment that a cancellation came in from a family that chose to stay home due to the pandemic.
The Villa is perfectly situated near the beach, but high enough on a Mountain hill to have the most superb sea view in front of Livanos Island and with a salt water infinity pool that magically transforms you to an oasis. If our review sounds like an add, it is because we can't say enough good things about the Villa itself. The drive up the hill is not on the smoothest of roads, but the Villa, pool, and view are priceless. The Villa is also 15 minutes from Porto Heli and Ermioni, where you have many restaurants, cafe, bars, etc to enjoy.
We stayed at the Villa with our 4 1/2 year old twins, nanny, and family member. There were three adults and 2 children. There was more than enough room for all of us to be quite comfortable. The children and nanny occupied the lower level, which gave the children their own space and us some quiet time. The bedrooms off the 2nd floor each had a stunning view of the sea. A most rejuvenating start to the day.
There are two bedrooms on the 2nd floor, which allowed us to host close friends for some days. The setting was so stunning and relaxing that we wanted to share it with close friends.
The beaches are beautiful and at most 5 minutes from the Villa by car. It was perfect in our view, as they were not at all crowded and it allowed us to swim freely as if we had our own private corner of the nirvana.
You will not hear a single complaint from our family and for a good reason; the Owners Spiros & Sophia. They are genuine, kind, caring and look to make your stay unforgeable. This is a first for us, where we urged the owners to join us for a nice afternoon lunch at their own Villa. But, good people are hard to come by, and for us, it was an extra and welcome good fortune to meet their acquaintance and forge a friendship.
The Villa also has available a small but quaint boat to be used by guests either steward alone or by the hire of Angelos. My husband at first chose to take the boat out on his own, but on meeting Angelos, quickly chose to allow Angelos to take charge of the 7 meter boat. Our children had a blast on the sightseeing and from the diving and swimming off the boat. Something we did not expect in light of their young age.
To sum it up, nothing but rave reviews !
Karen S. arrived 10 October 2020
We had a wonderful time - and cannot think of a single thing that PGVor the hosts could do to improve our stay (other than opening the nearby taverna!). The arrangements and the welcome were outstanding. We will definitely use PGV again and recommend it to friends (already have) and would love to stay at the villa again. THANKYOU!
Joanne S. arrived 30 August 2020
We loved our stay and will use Pretty Greek Villas again for next year.
Sally O. arrived 9th Sept 2019
I have to say that I loved Artemis. The house and views were
superb and the pool was wonderful.
The villa was very well placed for trips to Epidavros and
archaeological sites, Francthi caves which we enjoyed. The highlight though was Ancient and Acro Corinth on our return journey from Lefkada.
With best wishes,
Sally & Simon

The villa and holiday were fabulous
Penny F. arrived 26th Oct 2019
We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Greece and it was a great pleasure to meet Sofia and Spiros with their son. They welcomed us with gifts and very kindly allowed us to stay a bit longer on the Saturday to fit in with our late flights from Athens. We thought that the villa was particularly well appointed and equipped for all ages of our party. The pool is particularly well designed for toddlers at one end and divers at the other and then there are those stunning views!!!
Thank you once again
Very best wishes

Robert C. arrived 21th July 2018
We had a wonderful time at Villa Artemis.
The experience from start to end was great. Spiros and Sophia are great hosts and helped us with a number of questions whilst we were there. The welcome food, drinks and cake were also a lovely touch. We left comments in the visitors book at the villa for future guests.
As we had such a great time we have already started looking at next

Jan and Basia W. arrived 2th June 2018
We had an absolutely wonderful holiday at Villa Artemis ????
Sophia and Spiros did everything to make sure we had a great time.
Spiros came immediately to sort out the air con, and was on hand (in a discreet way) at any time we needed something. Sophia baked us a cake ???? when we arrived, which we much appreciated after the long, but beautiful journey from Kalamata !
This villa is very well constructed and equipped so that the guest
does not lack for anything and makes for an extremely comfortable & relaxing stay.
The weather for the two weeks was very hot, in our second week we hit
temperatures of 45 (in the sun ) , which I think is a little unusual for this time of the year in this region, but it made us rest a lot and we could cool off in the pool and in the villa???? + ????
Despite the heat .we did go sightseeing, and managed Ancient Corinth
and the Canal, Ancient Epidavros, Nafplio, Porto Cheli, Ermioni and Hydra !!!
We feel that there is still a lot to see in this area and would
consider a return to this villa as it is an extremely relaxing villa with magnificent views and we still have other islands and ancient monuments to visit
We are always looking for a villa rental with a great views & most
importantly, a peaceful environment and excellent quality internal specification, and this villa had it all ????
Once again thank you for arranging the holiday,
Basia & Jan

clean and nothing to miss. Everything was well prepared.
The sourrunding is beautiful and Sophia and Spiros are such kind hosts.
Everything was perfect!
We would love to come back as soon as possible!
Istvan M. arrived 31th March 2018
Our stay was truly enjoyable. Loved the area - absolutely stunning, unspoilt and a short drive to a number of towns. Although it was warm and sunny it's a shame we couldn't take full advantage of swimming in the sea but I suppose we will have to go back when it's warmer! With respect to the property - it seems like the best one in that little area and has a great view which enjoys the sun the entire day (thanks for pointing that out) It had everything we needed and the managers went out of their way to fix the fuse for the water heater as soon as we flagged it on an easter weekend.
I would mention that the property is at the highest point in the road leading up the hill which means its easy to start a hike in the mountains right from the driveway.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place. I'm depressed to be back in rainy London!
Anna T. arrived 1st Oct 2017

Patrick F. arrived 22th July 2017
We had a great stay at Kranidi and the Villa Artemis was a stunning place to pass a week. We could not fault it, the facilities were excellent and the owners clearly go to a lot of trouble to ensure that their guests have a great experience.
Emily Y. arrived 15th July 2017
We had a fabulous time at Artemis. It was just perfect. It had
everything we needed and was very relaxing. Thank you for organising the
hire car which made everything so easy. I would highly recommend
taking the Seacat from Pireaus to Porto Cheli, it took out all the
stress of driving.
We loved it so much that we would like to book Artemis again for
Once again many thanks for the great organising

Apologies for the slow turn around I am only now in front of the computer after the holiday :)
Ill check with Mike in terms of the deposit, I am not sure whether he paid it or not and will revert - it may have been included in the last payment?
We absolutely loved the villa.
It is very remote which we loved.
We will certainly stay in touch as would consider returning to Greece.
All the best

Thanks for your email. Yes, we had a fantastic time in villa Artemis! The house is beautiful and very comfortable, the mosquito nets were very much appreciated, our host Sophia offered us delicious self-made olive oil.

Karen H. arrived 9th Aug 2015
The restauraunt sounds great, though kids don't like fish and I not sure we will have time.
All the best
I appreciate your concern. In fact by the time we got off the boat which arrived a bit late anyway, the very nice taxi driver was there waiting for us. So the transfer was as smooth as can be, albeit rather long, but comfortable and with what felt like a safe driver.
The house is lovely, the owner and her niece very nice and the views amazing. They 've provided a few very thoughtful and helpful items. There are a few small touches which need sorting but I 'm sure that will happen.
Also, a lovely lady from the car hire company came this morning, so we have the hire car and have discussed the transfer etc
So all in all, pretty seamless and now just relaxing by the pool. A few clouds in the sky are most welcome !
Many thanks for all your help
With best wishes
Kim L. arrived 1st Aug 2015
We had a lovely week at Villa Artemis. The view was stunning and was amazing to look at at any time of day - we will miss it! We were very impressed with the villa too. It has all been very carefully planned and well presented plus the facilities are great. It was lovely to have some groceries provided on our arrival and very much appreciated. It made our first couple of days staying at the villa much easier. We enjoyed all the aspects of outdoor living - having the outside table and chairs etc. as we spent most of our time out there. The pool was amazing too. We all loved it being an infinity pool and our three children had a great time in it. We will always remember it as our youngest son learnt to swim in the pool while we were there! The only thing we would mention is that it might be worth letting people know roughly how long it takes from the meeting point with the owner to get to the villa and also that the road is very steep and rough - we found it a bit tricky on the first try! But that was a very minor complaint. The owner, Sophia, even though she didn't speak much English, was extremely helpful and got any problems solved quickly.
Overall we were very pleased with the villa and would highly recommend it. I've already had a look at your website at possible villas for us to try in the future!
