Phaedon

Peloponnese

Beach-fronted villa complete with RIB, sailing dinghies, tennis court, infinity pool and much, much more!

Villa Phaedon is one of those rare properties that combines absolute relaxation, privacy and tranquillity yet with tonnes of activities to keep everyone super happy. The property is situated metres from the beach overlooking the spectacular Methana Peninsula with the scented pine hills and orange trees of Epidavros behind. As you descend the hill, you see the bluest of sparkling waters before you and then you catch a glimpse of the estate with its pool, tennis court, vineyard and spacious villa. Entering a simple track through olive groves and wild grasses, you reach the gate to your holiday paradise!

Cobbled pathways shaded by huge carob trees lead the way up to the main entrance. The villa is on three levels. The ground floor has a large open-plan space with well-designed kitchen including preparation island and casual dining area. Beyond is the larger indoor dining area and a very comfortable living area with sofas and chairs set around a double-sided fireplace. To the other side is a peaceful study, ideal as a reading room. This level also has a guest WC. This wonderful open-plan space has large glass doors from which you have an uninterrupted view of the glistening sea. These open out onto a large main terrace that surrounds the villa.

From the centre of the open-plan space, a staircase leads to the upper level which has been beautifully designed. The four bedrooms are situated on this upper level. The long lobby with its cathedralesque windows connecting the bedrooms is to the mountain-side of the villa letting in a more gentle light and fresh mountain breezes along the length of the villa. The lobby has doors leading directly outside and is a perfect place to enjoy breakfast in the coolness of the mountain air.

The first bedroom has a double bed with an elevated single bed and an adjacent bathroom. The second bedroom which shares this bathroom has a double bed and ensuite WC. The master bedroom has double bed and features a fireplace and ensuite bathroom with Jacuzzi and shower. The fourth bedroom has two single beds one of which is elevated and a sofa bed that can be used as a 3rd single bed. The fourth bedroom has its own ensuite bathroom with shower. All bedrooms have spacious terraces with magnificent views over the sea.

The central staircase leads to the lowest level of the villa. There is one bedroom with a double bed plus a single bed with an additional single bed that slides out from beneath this bed for extra accommodation. This bedroom has an en-suite bathroom. Next to this bedroom and sharing the same bathroom, is a large playroom with two sofa beds and a single bed making this level a great space potentially for teenagers to be accommodated together. Within the playroom there is also pool table, table tennis and lounge area. 

Outside is a very large infinity swimming pool with a deep end suitable for diving (12.5m x 5.5m with a maximum depth of 3.2m). There is an inflated water volleyball net and water polo goal available. Below the garden is a full-size doubles tennis court (racquets and balls are available) and basket ball hoop. Olympic archery sets and children’s bows are also provided. There are also bicycles for the non-faint hearted since the villa is located down a steep hill.

Amazingly also included at the property are 2 new one-person kayaks, and 3 sailing boats (two lasers and a Waker Bay 310) with easy to launch trailers at the beach just 20 metres from the property entrance. The Waker Bay can also be used for rowing.There is also a Novurania 4.8m RIB suitable for 5 people. With the RIB so much can be explored - nearby beaches, fishing villages on the Methana Peninsula (10-15 mins away) or the island of Angistri (20 mins away). The Methana Peninsula which lies opposite has the deepest sea in the Saronic Gulf so it is rich in marine life – from the little beach you will see shoals of fish, sea urchins, starfish, sometimes sea-horses and often dolphins. For some gentle snorkelling, the pebble beach just below the villa is perfect!

For guests who want to relax and re-charge the property is ideal. With comfortable reclining armchairs and loungers around the pool area which is partially shaded, and an outdoor living area and dining area on the covered main terrace which overlooks the gardens, pool, tennis court and sea. The gardens are a delight with gently terraced flower beds showing off a profusion of colours and scents with pathways meandering through the plantings. For a dip in the sea, just walk through the grounds to the gate and there are two small beaches right outside. A splendid and magical spot is the Gazebo that literally hangs over the sea with the rustling leaves of the vineyard behind. As you look down, the sea is so translucent and it is a perfect spot to enjoy a drink as the moon rises over the Methana Peninsula.

All bedrooms have air-conditioning and there are ceiling fans in all bedrooms on the upper floor and study. Additionally there are two new air-conditioning units on the ground floor level.

The nearest amenities to the villa are between a 5-20 min drive: There is an excellent AB supermarket on the road to Ancient Epidavros about a 12 min drive from the villa. One of the nearest tavernas which has panoramic sea views is about a 15 min drive away. Otherwise all other shops and tavernas are in Ancient Epidavros by the sea which is about a 20 min drive away.

In Ancient Epidavros there are motor boats for hire that require a power boat licence but a skipper is available, and there is scuba diving and paragliding. This is also an area rich in culture and history and guests can easily visit The Ancient Sanctuary of Asklepios at Epidavros with its world-famous amphitheatre, as well as Ancient Myceanae and the Venetian town of Nafplion. With the cosmopolitan island of Spetses and all that Spetses offers just 1 hour away and the island of Poros just 25 kms away, this is a perfect spot to enjoy many aspects of Greek summer life.

With so much to offer guests, Villa Phaedon is a rare treasure. Beg, borrow or steal – it is worth every cent!
