The Pool and Garden

Private pool terrace and mature gardens

The swimming pool at Portokali Cottage is set on a private terrace behind the house. There are lovely sea and sunset views beyond the wooded valley below. Sunbeds and umbrellas are provided.

The freshwater swimming pool at Portokali Cottage measures 5.5 metres x 3.10 metres with an approximate depth of 1.55 m.  The pool provides a wonderful way to keep cool on hot days as well is a lovely focal point for relaxing around.

The sunset views from this terrace are spectacular too.

The gardens around Portokali Cottage are well established.  In the drive way there is a large orange tree.  In Greek, the word for orange is “Portokali” and it is from this tree that we have taken the name for the cottage! The other mature trees and shrubs are typically mediterranean and include a lemon tree, a walnut tree, olive trees, lavendar, bougainvillea, and oleander.

In front of the main entrance to the cottage is a large shaded terrace. This is where most guests have breakfast lunch and dinner as during the summer months in Greece, al fresco living is the norm.

There is a third small sun terrace. This is directly off the twin bedroom.  From here there are views of Assos and the Lixouri peninsula.
