Follow the narrow winding footpath from Megalochori town square and youll reach the welcoming doors of mansion Kiara. Views of the vineyards in the distance are a reminder of this attractive mansions former life as a winery and cellar at the turn of the century. The original structure has been sensitively returned to its former splendor, retaining the original layout and many traditional features. Its rounded igloo-like proportions and generous living areas make an ideal base for experiencing the many rhythms of this enchanting island.
Indoors, an all-white monastic simplicity lends peace and serenity, graced by dark wood furnishings and intricate features. Its smooth curves, alcoves and subtle lighting offer a cool and relaxing haven during the hot summer days. A barn door leads you into the open-plan living space with a wonderful entertainment area. An archway takes you through to the villas three delightful bedrooms and bathrooms. A well-equipped central kitchen, fashioned out of smooth stone, exits directly to the courtyard.
Outside, the cool aquamarine of the pool is beautifully offset by the hot pink of the flowering climber that drapes the mansions walls. Deluxe padded teak sun loungers invite you to recline on the courtyard and soak up some Vitamin D. Epicurean meals can be thoroughly enjoyed in the alfresco dining area, shaded by a pergola and softly lit at night, or indoors at the elegant formal dining table. From the courtyard, stairs lead up to the terrace where the view of the vineyards and the sea beyond can be fully appreciated.
Large windows bathe the bedrooms in natural daylight. The comfortable master bedroom has wonderful views of the pool and colorful gardens and the other two bedrooms are on the other side of the corridor. A large, modern vanity bathroom with tub serves both bedrooms and a second bathroom with shower is accessible from the living area.
