Every bend of the road that winds up from the main northeast coast road below reveals views of increasing beauty; the view from Lammos takes your breath away.
Only a kilometre up from the coast, yet you seem to have entered a different world.
The first thing you hear when you get out of your car is the breeze sighing in the oak trees, closely followed, perhaps, by the call of a bird soaring on the air currents. And that is probably as much as you will hear for the rest of your stay in this beautiful and unusual house.
This is a very modern house, reminiscent, with its curved walls and large windows, of a cruise ship.The centre of the house is defined by a handsome round stone turret that contrasts pleasingly with the otherwise white walls of the house.When you first walk into the house you are met by the fragrance of the wood that forms a large part of the dιcor and then your eyes are drawn to the superb view framed by the huge windows an uninterrupted vista of the exquisite bays of the northeast coast, on to the centre of the island.
A spacious living room amply accommodates sitting and dining areas, with a big fireplace at one end, and a sleek kitchen fitted into the curve of the other end. From here there is access to the terrace and to a lovely, mosaic-tiled, kidney-shaped swimming pool that seems to spill right over the hillside.The three levels of the house are linked by the beautiful staircase in the turret; each bedroom has its own type of bed, modern four-posters or comfortable twin beds the mattresses come from England and are very comfortable.
On the lower ground floor there is a very informal family room, with sofas to sprawl on and a large-screen TV. Despite its privacy, the house is not isolated a tiny hamlet lies just a little further up the road, and the coastal resorts of Kalami, St Stephano and Kassiopi are all within ten to fifteen minutes drive away. Photographers will be in their element walk down the road back to the coast for a series of fantastic views but get someone to pick you up at the bottom of the hill! A lovely and very modern house quite unique, and an excellent choice for families or a group of friends
