Detailed villa description
Inside: accommodation at Hippokampoi is spread over two floors. A wide flight of steps leads up from the parking and pool area to the main entrance on the first floor. From here, a corridor runs the length of the villa giving access to the large, stylishly furnished living and dining areas, surrounded on three sides by floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors. These create a bright, airy atmosphere, bring the superb sea views inside and provide access to a large, shady panoramic terrace that wraps around the house. The dining area is separated from the living area by a semi-partition wall and shares the same sea views and terrace access. Across the corridor from the dining area is the bright, fully-equipped modern kitchen. A door between the dining area and kitchen leads outside and, via a couple of steps, to the upper terrace with a shady pergola and al fresco dining area. To the rear of the first floor are a study and a shower room. A sweeping staircase leads down to the cool ground floor, home to two double bedrooms and one double-twin bedroom, all spacious with sea views and French windows offering direct access to the pool area. Two have en-suite shower rooms and one has an en-suite bathroom with separate tub and shower. The two double bedrooms have separate dressing areas. Accommodation at Hippokampoi is completed by a fully-equipped laundry and utility room. Furnishings and fittings throughout are of a consistently high level.
Outside: al fresco activities at Hippokampoi revolve around the delightful pool area, which is blessed with intoxicating views of the bay and coastline down below, and a superb infinity pool. The grounds' 2.5 acres are planted with olive groves and, immediately around the house, a wide variety of Mediterranean flora. Meals are generally taken under the shady pergola outside the kitchen on the first floor and from here too the views are stunning. The covered terrace running along the entire façade of the house on the first floor is accessed directly from the living and dining areas and provides the ideal shady spot for reading, gazing out to sea, sipping on a morning coffee or planning the day's activities. Last, but certainly not least, a few minutes' walk down the driveway and across a little access road will get you to Hippokampoi's very own jetty and, 30m further on, to a small shingle beach. Guests who hire a boat may moor it at the jetty during their stay and explore the island's many quiet bays and seafront tavernas by water.
