Villa Kinesia is an idyllic retreat. Romantics, walkers, painters and photographers will undoubtedly appreciate this holiday hideaway with its sunny private pool and its incredible views of the Kassiopi-St. Stephano coastline.
The green hillsides that stand above St. Stephano and Kerasia, dotted with tiny stone hamlets, afforded refuge in less settled times to islanders fleeing the coastal invasions of pirates and marauders. These days they offer a refuge to the discerning visitor, fleeing the stress and anxiety of everyday life, and it is on the edge of one such hamlet that Villa Kinesia is to be found. It is the kind of house conversion that English people dream of doing and write bestsellers about!
In this case, however, it is the achievement of its young Greek owners, who also own Villa Strongilo. Surrounded by its own old-established vineyards, the cottage is completely secluded and still retains much of its old character, subtly enhanced by modern comforts. There is a lovely stone terrace shaded by a very healthy vine.
This overlooks the very pretty swimming pool, and beyond this, a fantastic vista of the sea and the mainland opposite, looking like a map spread out before you. These hillsides are tempting territory for walkers; threaded with footpaths and winding tracks leading to abandoned villages and breathtaking viewpoints.
This is another world, so different from the coast, yet only a few minutes drive from St. Stephano and Kassiopi, with all their facilities for shopping, eating and entertainment, and there is a wide choice of fine beaches in this area too.
