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.

The freshwater swimming pool at Portokali Cottage is set on private stone terrace behind the cottage. There are 4 sunbeds and umbrellas provide shade when necessary. The pool measures 5.5 metres x 3.10 metres with an approximate depth of 1.55 m.  This terrace provides a wonderful place to unwind and keep cool on hot days whilst enjoying the sea views beyond the unspoilt valley.

The sunset views from this terrace are spectacular too.

The gardens around Portokali Cottage are mature and well established .  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 we have taken the name for the cottage. 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. 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 which is directly off the twin bedroom.  From here, there are views of Assos and the Lixouri peninsula.
