Excellently located property with private pool, set in peaceful surroundings but easy walking distance to beach, shops and tavernas
Lefkothea is a newly built property that draws on the traditional Neo-Classical architecture of Spetses and the island's nautical heritage. It has a great layout for families with children or for a group of friends. Furnishings are comfortable and stylish throughout, and the simplicity of style gives the property a serene and relaxed atmosphere.
A doorway embedded into the thick stone wall leads you into the property. Before you is a large and deep veranda with arches running the length of the villa. Upon entering the villa, there is an open plan living space comprising a very well-equipped kitchen, dining area and living area with built-in sofas with striking deep blue fabrics contrasted with minimal-floral chic cushions. The cosy fireplace and large oil painting of a maritime scene complete the picture. Four sets of French windows lead out onto the veranda and pool terrace. The arched veranda runs the length of the villa and has a comfortable and spacious living area with sofas and armchairs cooled by two outdoor ceiling fans.
The upper level has a particularly airy, comfortable and peaceful atmosphere with its white wooden panelling and built-in beds accented by blue cushions. French windows run the length of the building and lead to an upper terrace with sea views over Dappia and the Saronic Gulf. There is a single bedroom, and a master bedroom with double bed. Between these rooms is a shared bathroom with bath, shower and WC.
The lower-ground level is a light and airy space that has been cleverly designed to provide two separate spaces that can be closed off one from the other. The first space has a living area with kitchenette, a twin bedroom with built-in beds and a bedroom with two single beds. There is also a bathroom with shower and a second washing machine on this level. The second space has a bedroom with two single beds and a bathroom with bath and shower. With the benefit of a second living room on this level, children can play whilst adults enjoy the peace of the main living room upstairs.
The whole property has a simple, light feel unified by the white walls and with the woodwork picked out in a deep maroon. There is air-conditioning throughout, WIFI internet, TVs in both living rooms and a DVD player.
From the main living area or via steps from the lower-ground level, guests can access the main arched veranda with its outdoor living area. A few steps down leads to the pool terrace with loungers set out on the sun-bathing terrace as well as pool-side table tennis giving hours of fun. A large outdoor dining table with built-in sofas with comfortable cushions provides an elegant and spacious out-door dining area.
The property is ideally situated for guests who want to walk easily to the beach, shops and tavernas. Kounoupitsa jetty is only a few minutes walk away where there is a beach and some delightful tavernas where you can dine right on the sand with the waves lapping at your feet as you eat. Kaiki beach with its sunbeds, umbrellas, watersports and lively beach bar surrounded by pristine nature and with crystal clear waters is about a 10 min walk away. In the other direction, the heart of Spetses Town is also easily reached in about 10 mins by foot. Since this property is accessed without any hills, it makes bicycle hire possible too.
A great choice for families and friends looking for a peaceful retreat but with easy access to everything that the chic island of Spetses has to offer.
