Villa Stelios, Samos, Greece Vacation Rental
The delightful island of Samos has much to offer as a holiday destination with its diverse landscape, forests, mountains, traditional villages, sandy beaches, archeological sites and monasteries, not forgetting the sweet Muscat wine for which it is also famous. The property we have for rent here is situated on the north-west coast of the island, 45 kms from Samos airport and just a five minute drive from the old town and port of Karlovassi. It occupies the secluded and tranquil Marnei peninsula, amidst a pine forest which extends down to the crystal clear Aegean Sea. Beyond the peninsula, a short walk will bring you to Potami Beach, with a lively and tasteful beach bar/restaurant known as Hippy’s, an ideal spot for mingling with the locals, and a famous place to try exceptional cocktails and local fusion food, from morning to lunch time, and sunset and beyond! Also close by is Megalo Seitani beach, the island’s most beautiful beach and a designated conservation area for rare fauna and flora.
The accommodation consists of three beautiful private villas and a reception cottage, set in a 40,000 sq. metre orchard. The villas have been designed, with use of local materials, to blend perfectly with their natural environment. The orchard includes an olive grove, a vegetable garden, a vineyard, herb gardens, colorful flowers and fruit trees, all organically grown. The villas share a beautiful overflow swimming pool 6.5 x 9m), with furnished terrace, with pool bar, and a baby pool for young children. In this lovely setting, guests can choose to relax on the villa veranda, swim and snorkel at the property’s two private coves, lounge by the pool, visit the many inland island attractions by car or by using one of the many hiking trails, go to the beach, or travel by road or sea to shop or dine out in Karlovassi.
The villas are light, sunny, decorated and furnished to a high standard, and with Greek marble-finished bathrooms, and Frette linen and towels. The open-plan kitchens are separated by a counter with stools from the adjacent dining areas, offering unobstructed sea views. The dining areas lead to sitting rooms with sliding French doors, opening to verandas, shaded by wooden pergolas, furnished for relaxing and dining outdoors while enjoying the stunning sea views. The sitting rooms have high ceilings with exposed wood beams and working log burning fireplaces for cooler spring and autumn evenings. Equipment includes satellite TV, DVD, CD, telephone and fax service and internet connection. The kitchens open to a rear patio with dining area and barbecue, and also an outdoor shower.
Each of the three villas has its own private landscaped paved garden, which offers a third ‘al fresco’ dining area. Breakfast is served each morning from a pre-selected menu, using fresh organically grown produce. Lunch can be provided, either from a menu of typical Greek summer dishes, or as a beach hamper. For evening meals, guests can order some fresh fish or local meat for a barbecue, with or without the discreet help of staff. The concierge service is available to take care of anything from excursions, mountain hikes, fishing trips, sailing and boat charters, to providing babysitting or booking massages. Involving guests in the traditional day to day activities of the property, such as preparation of sun-dried tomatoes in late July, the grape harvest in late summer, olive and mushroom picking in autumn, the first “souma” wine tasting in late autumn and daily picking of fresh fruit and vegetables can be arranged.
