Built to high specifications by local craftsmen, and completed in 2005, the bright and airy property commands spectacular views over the Gulf of Messinia and of the mountains and coastline of the Mani Peninsular. The villa sits on a plot of 750 sq m in a peaceful backwater, yet only a couple of minutes away from the village and beaches by car, and is conveniently situated next to a quiet tarmac road alongside which is parking space for 3-4 cars. Marble steps lead down from the parking/turning space to a tiled entrance area and the front door, which is at first-floor level.
The front door opens onto a landing area (off which is a cloakroom with WC and washbasin), leading through an archway into the open plan lounge / dining / kitchen area.
