The house is located on a hill, 50m from the beach, on state of the art housing complex with private parking (2 spaces) and a common Olympic size swimming pool. The complex is facing the Southwest Aegean sea and the temple of Poseidon in Cape . It combines the principles of modern architecture with the ones of Greek traditional Aegean architecture.
A 120 sqm house in ground and first floor constructed with respect for the nature surrounding it.
The ground floor consist of one big bedroom (double bed and sitting place with a double sofa-bed), another bedroom with two single beds and a bathroom. Both rooms benefit from sunlight, views to the sea and access in the private garden.
The first floor comprises a fully equipped kitchen, the living room and a bedroom with double bed and a bathroom. There is also a fire place corner and a separate dinning space. Next to the fireplace there is a comfy sofa-bed, TV and DVD player. Both living room and bedroom access a spacious balcony with breathtaking view to the Aegean sea and the Poseidon Temple. A BBQ is available making the place ideal for enjoying the sunset and the sea at night.
There is no car traffic around the complex making our community very private, quiet and safe. The roads are ideal for walking, jogging and cycling. We have a walking path that parallels the cost line just a few meters above the sea that is great to walk in the cool afternoon and early evening.
The closest ancient monument is the Temple of Poseidon, at Sounio. Less than 10 min drive , it is ideal in sunset . It is also a nice spot for coffee or dinner. The remains of the temple of Athena are at the foot of the Sounio hill.
The city of Lavrio has an archaeological museum with findings from all around the region and an ancient theater at the boarder of the town in the village of Thorico. Scuba diving can also be arranged. Lavrio is the nearest port to the Cyclades islands, but it is also a nice small town where you can hang out at afternoons or at night.
