Porto Heli, Villa Emilion
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. This detached Greek villa lies within a stone;s throw of the holiday port village of Porto Heli. The villa is one of a group of three, benefits from the exclusive use of a private pool (5x10m) area, which is laid with classic Italian terracotta tiles and includes BBQ and covered pergolas, alfresco dining for 12 and outdoor bar.
