Best sunsets in town. I shouldn’t write anything more, that should do it. Best sunsets in town, period. I just can’t put it into words. The light, the wind, and the smells of the arid Cycladic earth serve as potent mood changers. No room for stress or negativity. Everything goes away, no shrinks, no drugs, and no need for music. Just listen to the nature’s sounds. Nothingness is overpowering.
Two thousand square meters of exterior areas and a house of a little over one hundred square meters can entertain a party of six and serve as the setting of a memorable vacation. A ground floor encompassing an open plan kitchen, a custom made dining table, a sitting area, a bathroom, a fireplace, and a spacious sofa which – if need be – sleeps two. Porch windows open to a stone tiled exterior area where the main dining table – seats eight – rests under a reed straw pergola. The custom outdoor table, crafted by an artist, is made of blue, red, and yellow tiles. A bare attic hosting a small double bed and a bookshelf – hosting a collection of Vanity Fair magazines - overlooks the sitting area; ideal space for a couple of lovebirds.
Placed in the lower and cooler level, the master bedroom and a smaller second bedroom can accommodate four adults, and if need be five since there is an extra sofa in a space adjacent to the main bedroom. There is a second bathroom in the same level. Porch windows open to a stone tiled area connecting the bedroom with the lower exterior area and garden. This is my favorite breakfast spot since it is protected from the sun’s rays ‘till midday. The two benches and the chaise longues can sit all the house guests around a custom made table to feast a hearty Mediterranean breakfast or to sip early evening ouzo while playing petanque.
Did I say playing? My petite Old Trafford extends over fifty meters and ends just where the horizon unfolds or where the ball gets trampled by the neighbor’s goat. The playfield where I and my son play football (aka soccer in some cultures) 1970s style, has no grass, no tarmac, just the plain old soil, the occasional stone, the dust, the heat and the sweating of a middle aged dad getting his butt whipped by a couple of 4 year olds, moments short of a cardiac arrest…

After all this is what Greece should be about, the world’s second home. Families with children are especially welcomed!TripAdvisor property ID 3074814...Read more
