Historical house that has been restored with simplicity featuring a beautiful garden and pool in quiet surroundings yet close to amenities

Villa Lupin is a graceful Neo-Classical house dating from the 19th Century. Its spacious rooms, high ceilings and large windows give a light and restful feel throughout. The main hallway features an antique tiled floor and a beautiful antique carved wooden bench. To the right of the hallway is an airy living room with cream wood floors and windows looking out over the colourful garden. A comfortable sofa and armchairs are situated around the fireplace and for music-lovers there is also a fine piano.

To the left of the hallway is the first double bedroom. This is a very peaceful room with double height ceilings and features a fragment of a beautiful old fresco on its walls. Further down the hallway is a children’s bedroom decorated in duck-egg blue with a set of bunk beds. From the hallway, three wooden steps lead through a metre-thick archway to the kitchen/dining area with its cool terracotta-tiled floors.

The kitchen is a farm-house style kitchen with nicely painted wooden cupboards and features a large old marble sink. It’s very well equipped and includes a dishwasher, full sized oven, fridge/freezer. The long monastic-style dining table with benches and the antique tiled floor are a very nice feature and doors lead from the dining area to a quiet patio which is perfect in the early morning for coffee in the cool of the day.

From the kitchen, a passageway leads down to the main bathroom with shower and WC.

The third bedroom is accessed via a stairway from the kitchen area. This bedroom has a double bed and doors leading out to a veranda with views over Spetses and out over the Aegean Sea. This bedroom also has its own bathroom with shower and WC

The guest house is part of the main house building but has its own independent access from the garden. The guest house has recently been renovated and the bed configuration changed - it now has 3 single beds with its own bathroom with shower and WC. The guest house also has a new air-conditioning unit.

The property features WIFI and TV, and is well set up for families with babies since 2 cots can be provided. There is air-conditioning in the master bedroom upstairs, a new ceiling fan in the second bedroom and a ceiling fan on the veranda under the pergola.

The surrounding gardens are delightful. Tall, colourful lupins sway in the breeze and punctuate the abundant flowers and herbs in the wide herbaceous borders and the pebble-mosaic pathways create an elegant formality to the design.

Nestled into the garden is a large swimming pool surrounded by a spacious terrace with plenty of sun-loungers. The veranda next to the house has an area perfect for alfresco dining under the shade of a mature tree where in-built stone sofas with cushions offer a perfect space to relax during the hottest hours of the day.

Villa Lupin is located in a peaceful and private position just above the main town of Dapia. This is a very central spot - equal distance to both Aghias Mammas beach and Kounoupitsa beach. The shops, tavernas and cafes at Dapia are also within easy reach either by foot or by bicycle.

This is a property that would suit families looking for a quiet place to relax who would enjoy the simplicity of an authentically renovated Spetsiot house with beaches, shops and tavernas easily reached without the need for motorised transport.

Hi Anna, 
 
It's been a while since we came back from our holiday in Spetses and I have been meaning to email you with some feedback for some weeks now. Work has got in the way! Your help was brilliant from beginning to end and your efficiency was much appreciated by us all so once again thank you very much.
 
I would have no hesitation in using pretty greek villas again.
 
Villa Lupin was lovely, immaculate and very well cared for.
 
With regards next summer, we are already looking at your villas again and I wondered if you could let me know availability for Christiana in Lefkas for the last week July through August. 
 
I hope you have had a good summer too and I look forward to hearing back from you soon.
 
Kindest regards
 
Karlyn

Hi Vickie
 
We had a great time in Spetses and thought that Lupin was a super villa. Couldnt have been better and we hope to travel to Greece again next year. 
 
Thanks

Dear Vickie
 
We had a lovely 2 weeks thank-you!
 
The service you provided was excellent.  We would definitely use you again!
 
The villa has another bedroom and a wonder why they do not use this instead of the bunk room?
Do you have any other larger villas on Spetses, or elsewhere in Greece with large pool. at least 4 bedrooms, walking distance to the sea and restaurants etc. excellent condition?
 
Also if we came back to Spetses how much would it cost to hire a taxi to take us from Athens airport to Kosta - also would it be possible to hire a large taxi in advance (so it can take out suitcases etc?).
 
Many thanks!
Jayne

Dear Vickie,
 
Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.
 
We had a lovely holiday.  The owners were really lovely and extremely helpful in settling us in and giving us some local advice. 
He even rang us when we were leaving and very kindly booked a taxi for our luggage, which was very helpful.
 
Villa Lupin was beautifully furnished and clean, just as had been described, with a lovely pool and very peaceful. 
We were really happy with your service and efficient booking and help with taxis and car hire etc, thank you.  
 
I hope that feedback helps, it was a lovely holiday
 
Kind regards,
 
Katherine
