Oleander

Spetses

A very homely property with traditional decor offering a flavour of a traditional Greece, something hard to find these days!

Villa Oleander is a pleasing family house in a secluded position being surrounded by mature oleander trees only steps away from the sought-after location of the Old Harbour on Spetses.

This is a very comfortable and particularly well-equipped traditional house where the joys of simple island living, before modern luxuries such as swimming pools became the norm, can be experienced. A morning dip in the refreshing crystalline sea at a beach close to the house, long lunches taken on the secluded veranda, the coolness of a shady olive tree for a long afternoon siesta, and a short stroll to the Old Harbour to soak up the atmosphere of an evening on Spetses – these are all delights that this villa offers.

The house is all on one level. For the cooler months, there is a very large open-plan living room with sofas set around the fireplace, and an oak dining table. French windows lead out onto a long terrace with chairs set out under an olive tree with views over the Old Harbour and surrounding mountains. The kitchen area has a small kitchen table, as well as bar area for casual dining. The owner, being a well-known cookery writer, has a particularly well-equipped kitchen and has both gas and electric cooking facilities. From the kitchen is a delightful side veranda that has BBQ and outdoor dining area for 10 guests.

The master bedroom has en-suite bathroom and French Windows leading to a peaceful patio. The 2nd bedroom is a very pretty room with two single beds and windows looking out over the garden. This bedroom has a separate bathroom with shower.
Across a courtyard filled with a profusion of flowers is a separate guesthouse that has a double bedroom and ensuite bathroom. This little guesthouse is filled with a sense of calmness and serenity.

In keeping with the Mediterranean way of outdoor living during the hot summer months, the villa is surrounded by many different outside areas. Small, quiet areas for individuals to read or contemplate, or larger areas where everyone can gather to enjoy the company of friends.

The property is well equipped with air-conditioning throughout, heating in the winter, wireless internet access, DVD and CD. For guests who would really like to immerse themselves in Greek cooking and culture, cookery lessons can be arranged.

Alexandre Refregier arrived 09/08/2012
 
We would like to thank you for helping us with our trip to Spetses.
Everything from the taxi at Athens to the rental of villa Oleander went very smoothly. Vassilis was very kind and the owners Mrs and Mr. Palli were very welcoming, charming and helpful.  The traditional greek house was just what we were looking for!
On the whole we had a great trip and we are glad to have followed your advice to go to Spetses as our toddler just loved it.
We hope to use the services of your company again in the future.
All the best,
R. Chitra

So sorry for the delay.  I'm just back from a couple of weeks' leave.  
You are sweet to follow up on this but Geordie assures me that the wait was so small as to be barely noticeable!  Thanks so much for all your help, they had a great holiday.
 
Best wishes,
