The home, set amongst a large estate filled with lemon and orange trees, is situated in the picturesque seaside village of Temeni. A short walk lands you in the heart of this tranquil village, which offers a variety of tavernas, small markets, a lovely beach, coffee bars, and even tennis courts. The beach is only 700 meters from Villa Temeni!
The villa was built as a summer house for the Mayor of Aigion (a nearby town) and has a history of receiving important visitors over the years, includ...ing a prime minister and other ministers. The home is filled with antiques, interesting art pieces, and comfortable furnishings. Outside is a big, private yard with a French garden, covered terrace with view of the countryside and the sea in the distance, an old water well, a large lawn area, and a three-car garage.
