Tucked away in a walled garden, this traditional three-bedroom villa plus guest annex comprises the latest in eco-friendly technology (underfloor heating, 15m2 solar panels, smart heating and cooling systems) and clever use of space (shady spots to read or reflect, an evening BBQ space to enjoy with guests, quiet corners to watch the wildlife, and a roof terrace to enjoy the star-filled Mani night skies). The discrete design features and local stone are a nod to the beauty of the mountains and seascape of the Peloponnese.
The 15m pool extends towards the Mediterranean sea below and the ground-floor rooms are fitted with French windows opening onto the manicured garden of 1500m2 and terraces – this clever use of the outdoor space as an extension of the indoor space results in a cool summer hideaway, eliminating the need for air conditioning, and making the most of the natural breeze.
