Portokali Cottage is totally in keeping with the area. Built around 100 years ago from locally quarried stone, the Cypress beams were cut by hand from the forrested valley below. The cottage has been gently renovated during the last 20 years and now, with the addition of a swimming pool and air conditioned bedrooms, dishwasher and washing machine is both a comfortable and atmospheric home from home.
The open plan ground floor is partly carved out of the rock foundation so remains comfortably cool in the summer whilst retaining warmth in the cooler months.
There is a sitting area with a sofa, television and DVD player.
There is also a dining area and a well equiped kitchen.
A spiral staircase leads to a spacious upstairs landing.
For many, one of the joys of a holiday in Greece, is the fact that it is easy and reasonable to eat out.
However, for those wishing to self cater, the well equipped kitchen is easy to work in. The equipment includes, a full sized cooker, fridge freezer, diswasher, toaster and kettle.
Additionally, there are sufficient utensils, cutlery and crockery to prepare full family meals if required.
The large bedrooms are reached via the landing. The double room looks directly onto the swimming pool terrace.
This bedroom is fitted with and air conditioning unit that can also serve as a heater during the cooler months.
Both bedrooms share the bathroom which is reached via the landing.
The twin bedroom is reached via the landing and also benefits from a small private terrace directly outside the door.
This bedroom is also equiped with an air conditioning unit which can also blow warm air in the cooler months.
