Exuding happiness and exceptional taste this is a wonderful property with private pool in a quiet residential area close to Spetses Town with views of the island and the sea

Upon entering the villa, one is struck immediately by the harmony and beauty of the decor – Ottoman style modern tiling is juxtaposed with colourful, nautical stripes and the property is unified throughout by pale azure-blue paintwork. On the ground floor level, there is a main open plan living area with an exceptionally well-equipped kitchen with smart marble work surfaces and plenty of funky coloured crockery and serving dishes. The dining area is stunning – an Ottoman style modern tiled table with in-built sofas punctuated by nautical themed stripy cushions. The smart modern blue and orange dining chairs add elegance and pizzazz. This theme is carried through to the living area with its very elegant in-built sofa, colourful scatter-cushions and cosy fire-place. Azure-blue French windows lead onto the terrace harmonising perfectly with the blue of the Saronic Gulf below.

The upper level has a master bedroom with a king size bed, and ensuite bathroom with bath, shower and WC. This bedroom leads onto a large and lovely terrace where every detail has been thought through beautifully – from the stunning slate stone floor which is a reminder of the traditional techniques of the island, to the elegant and comfortable in-built sofas with colourful, stripy cushions that blend perfectly with the Ottoman tiled table. Guests can relax in total comfort whilst taking in the panoramic views across the bay to the mountains of the Peloponnese beyond. On this level, there is also a single bedroom/study and a second bathroom with shower and WC.

The lower-ground level is a light and airy space with 3 additional bedrooms: a bedroom with a queen size bed, a double bedroom and a bedroom with 2 single beds. There are two bathrooms - one with a shower and one with a bath. There is also a 5th bathroom with shower and WC for easy access directly from the pool area.

From the main living area (or via steps to the side of the house), guests can access a beautiful outdoor living area covered by shady arches with lemon and olive trees. The same traditional slate stone flooring as found on the upper terrace is also on this lower terrace. Mirroring the indoor living area, there is a beautiful in-built sofa with brightly coloured yellow cushions and a perfect dining area with modern tiled table lit by antique Ottoman lamps. A few steps lead down to the pool terrace which again has built-in sofas with funky, modern cushions and lounge chairs with the central focus being the pool itself. To the side is a quiet garden area with jasmine, bougainvillea and cypress trees. From the villa and pool terrace you have sea views.

The property is situated in the quiet residential area of Kounoupitsa only about a 5 minute walk from the jetty where there is also a beach and various tavernas where you can dine right on the sand with the waves lapping at your feet as you eat. The heart of Spetses Town is only about a 15 minute walk away so everything is within easy reach of the property.

This is a villa that exudes happiness and good living, and exceptional taste. Guests who stay here will find that the memory of this property will remain warm in their hearts even through the long months of winter.

Please note that this property can accommodate up to 8 guests and is not suitable for children under the age of 5.

Looking forward to our next Greek holiday.

Thank you so much for such a wonderful holiday on Spetses. It was a long time in coming, but it was well worth it in the end. We all had such an incredible holiday, which included two dive trips with the Porto Heli Scuba Club, snorkelling in Bikiri's cave, a quad bike tour of the island, horse riding and our younger son, Rory getting engaged to his girlfriend! Spetses is a lovely island, and the Colourful House was everything we could have hoped for. It was beautifully appointed, very well kept and cleaned and perfectly situated within the town.

I hope you are well, we have arrived in Spetses having just stayed in Hydra. Our stay in Hydra was magical the house was completely wonderful in every way and beautifully thought out and decorated, it was far beyond what we had expected. The pool and garden are very nice but generally the photos do not give.

We had a great stay thanks and the villa was lovely and the island is stunning. All that said the villa was fantastic, in a great location with amazing views and lady who cleaned it was friendly and did a great job. Transfers were also handled very well for us so thank-you for that. Both ways went like clockwork.

Kate H. arrived 1st Aug 2015 

Thank you so much, I cant think of anything that would have made the villa more perfect. It was gorgeous!

Cathy G. arrived 22th July 2014 

We had a wonderful time again this year and loved to have Lisa come and support us during our dsay to make it more relaxing and stress-free. I think next year we may try another island with some watersports as the children are getting older.

Clare M. arrived 11th Sept 2013 

First, I want to thank you both for your help with another fantastic rental through Pretty Greek Villas. We all had a wonderful time & were very sorry to leave! Colourful House was really a wonderful villa and we have thoroughly enjoyed being there. Thank you again for such a memorable stay!

Erica K. arrived 15th June 2013 

We loved Spetses, and your team were great ( thank you) and we will book through you next time we go to Greece 2015. It was a great layout for us as the kids, (who are grown up) had the basement floor. The house was near the beach & town, we all hired mopeds which meant we explored all the beaches. We had a brilliant time! the melon cocktails at Paradise beach were amazing!

Jacqueline M. arrived 8th Sept 2012 

It is almost hard to believe that a month has gone by since we left the Colourful House in Spetses! We were delighted with the house which was very comfortable and very well situated. Lisa was a great help upon our arrival. I would also like to add that Zafiroula was very efficient. May I ask you to let the owner of Colourful House know that we found the house delightful and very well decorated.  The kitchen was well stocked in dishes and glasses! We appreciated finding an iron in the laundry room.  We loved Spetses and were fortunate to have had great weather. On the second day my 21 year old grandson was already asking if we could go back next year!! Thank you all again, for all your help. 

Mel P. arrived 20th Aug 2012 

We would all like to thank you for all your help and such a wonderful holiday. Would you please also thank the owners for letting us use there wonderful home. It was lovely to find the beautiful books on Greece and sit and enjoy them. The views and pool where wonderful the decoration fresh and fun, the attention to detail appreciated, the house was beautifully clean and the housekeeper was very good and conciderate. We hope to book again with you and will recommend you to our friends. Many thanks again from all of us who stayed at the Colourful House.

Emma H. arrived 11th Aug 2012 

As I know you have just taken on Colourful House I wanted to give you some feedback on the house/service/Spetses. We loved Spetses. It was a great choice for our family (three kids aged 16, 18 and 20) for all the reasons you said. You were spot on the recommendation. We loved the location of the property, great spot for view, accessibility but quiet residential. We loved the house. The upstairs terrace and top floor bedroom, bathroom and study were fabulous and the kids were happy enough downstairs. The house had a lovely, homely feel and we were happy and relaxed there for the most part. All the restaurant and things to do recommendations were great and we appreciated all the books and games the owner left out. We all loved the super fast wifi upstairs and downstairs. ( we needed it as were getting a level results and uni offers ) Also the many sockets for iPads etc. It was adequately equipped.

Richard I. arrived 28th July 2012 

Overall we had a great time and the villa was great.
