Porto Heli, Villa Amalthia

This luxurious villa is located in a privileged position uphill of Porto Heli town enjoying extensive sea views over its bay and the island of Spetses. The villa combines serenity, tranquility and a peaceful setting with unique provincial interiors and luxurious facilities. Porto Heli is a popular holiday and weekend destination for wealthy Greeks and a boater’s paradise. It is easily accessed from Athens by regular speed ferry service (2hrs from Piraeus) or by car (120miles/2.5hrs from Athens International Airport). The area is generally known as the Costa Grecia (or Greek Riviera) and essentially expands along the Peloponnesian peninsula facing the island of Spetses and its respective coastline. Options abound; explore the local coastline, or visit one of many nearby islands. You can start with the popular whitewashed island of Spetses (10 minutes by small boat or water taxi from Costa harbour) or Hydra (an artist’s traffic free paradise) or even drive up the coast through the lemon groves to Poros. The villa’s earthy colors, handpicked neoclassical furniture and attention to detail (handmade Turkish tiles at entrance level) provide a remarkable setting. The villa is built on three levels. Entrance is to the middle/upper ground level with the living room, the indoor dining area, the kitchen and a double bedroom with en suite bathroom/WC. The upper level has the master bedroom suite with en suite bathroom/WC and the second double bedroom with en suite bathroom/WC. Two additional double bedroom suites with en-suite bathrooms/WC are located at pool level.
