The gardens around Portokali Cottage are mature and well established among the stone terraces. On the drive, there are two small orange trees and a particularly bountiful lemon tree. In Greek, the word for orange tree is “Portokali” and it is from this tree that the cottage takes its name. The other mature trees and shrubs are typically Mediterranean and include a walnut tree, a plum tree, olive trees, lavender, bougainvillea, plumbago and oleander bushes.
In front of the main entrance to the cottage is a large shaded terrace with a farmhouse table for al fresco dining.
There is a third small sun terrace which is directly off the twin bedroom. From here, there are views of Assos and the Paliki peninsula.
