Detailed villa description
Inside: accommodation at Daphne is spread over three floors. The main entrance takes one into the large, welcoming living room, whose lofty, white-beamed ceilings, elegant furnishings and multiple French doors (which access the wrap around terraces and bring in the sea views), create an exceedingly luminous and welcoming ambience. To the left of the living area is the splendid, well-equipped kitchen-diner, which also accesses the surrounding terraces and the al fresco dining area. Stairs lead up to the generously proportioned master double suite, which benefits not only from a super en-suite bathroom with separate shower and tub and double sinks, but also a private sea-view terrace. Heading back to the living room and continuing down the stairs, one comes to the lower ground floor, which comprises a TV and sitting area, a twin bedroom, a double-twin bedroom and a double bedroom with feature fireplace. The twin and the double-twin have en-suite shower rooms, while the double has an en-suite bathroom with tub and shower attachment. All three bedrooms have sea views and access to a large terrace that runs for the whole length of the house.
Outside: the outdoor areas of Daphne are a joy to spend time in, with numerous areas dotted around the terraces for dining, lounging, chatting and sipping on aperitifs. To one side of the main house is the large pool terrace, looking out to sea and infinity. The pool area is served by a large covered pergola, accessed from the kitchen and living area and fully furnished with comfy rattan sofas and chairs and a panoramically placed dining table. This terrace fans out around the house, front and back, to the other side of the property, where there is another shady area, furnished for reclining and repose. Steps lead down to the lower level, where there is another large expanse of sea-view terracing, complete with a covered sitting area, a dining table and a kitchen with barbecue, sink and draught beer dispenser! More steps lead down from here to the olive-tree-specked gardens. A gate to the side of the house allows guests to follow a short footpath down to the beach, where the crystal clear waters are ideal for swimming and snorkelling. All the internal communal areas and bedrooms access these terraces through large French windows and the master bedroom on the first floor has its own panoramic balcony.
