A recently built property with a lovely pool in a delightfully secluded corner of Zakynthos. The house sleeps 12 and has a lovely pool as well as beautiful views down the coast.
Villa Alicia is situated in a delightfully secluded corner of Zakynthos, on the hillside with all round panoramic views of the sea, the coast and the hills behind. It is only 5 minutes drive down to the Peligoni sailing and windsurfing club, the sea, the local harbour and the nearest village, so car hire is essential.
The property has over two acres of terraced hillside, as do most of the others houses in this area. The house is approached by a long and level unmade private drive with excellent parking. This leads off an unspoilt single track tarmac hill road that winds through ancient olive groves to the rear of the house from which the hillside stretches unspoilt to the skyline with only the occasional herd of goats to disturb the peace. Down at the Peligoni, guests are welcome to meet other like-minded holiday makers at their bar or make use of their tennis court.
Built in 2001, the property has 6 bedrooms and can comfortably accommodate 12 people.
The main part of the house has four twin bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. The two upstairs bedrooms open via French windows onto their own private terraces which are formed either side of the house from the wrap-around upper terrace. They all have stunning views, across to Cephalonia, out to the hills behind where the sun sets and down the eastern coastline towards Alykes bay. Similarly spectacular views are enjoyed by the two ground floor bedrooms which both give onto the main terrace. Outside steps from there lead down to the garden and two further twin bedrooms which share a bathroom. All five bathrooms have a large shower (with a good steady pressure and mixture control), basin, bidet and w.c. In addition one upstairs bathroom, which is accessible also to other house guests, has a small bath (for children or inveterate bath takers!)
All six bedrooms contain two large single beds (designed so that they can be placed side by side to become a 6ft wide double bed) and hanging and storage space. The main upstairs entrance opens into a spacious sitting room and gallery with stairs leading down to the double height dining room and integrated kitchen.
The spacious and fully equipped kitchen has a gas hob and electric oven, microwave, dishwasher, large fridge/freezer and full sized separate ‘drinks’ fridge. The extensive tiled work surface includes a ‘peninsular’ dividing the kitchen from the dining area. A large storage/utility room with washing machine and sink is situated behind the bedrooms on the lower garden level.
From the dining room and integrated kitchen wide French windows lead directly out onto the half-roofed 12m x 6m main terrace with its in-built seating areas. To one side of this is the 6m x 7m sun terrace with the full sized 10m x 5m swimming pool and pool terrace set below down some steps. On the other side of the main terrace is the 8m x 10m barbecue terrace with its own covered eating area. From here steps lead down to the 10m x 9m garden terrace with its giant chess board.
So Villa Alicia offers a truly magnificent choice of expansive terraces and views for alfresco living both in the sunshine and in the shade.
