Set on the hillside which sweeps up above Trapezaki beach, Villa Cornelia was originally the summer hideaway of a local man who enjoyed fishing! The simple ground floor “house” sat in a large mature garden and more than fulfilled this fisherman’s need for a peaceful retreat!
During the winter of 2014/15 the original house has been totally renovated and almost rebuilt to provide an idyllic holiday home with masses of character and charm.
The large flat garden , mainly given over to grass but with a graveled area at the rear in which a raised fish pond reigns supreme, offers a wonderful play area for children or simply a pleasant area to lounge. There is also a Wendy house and tunnels in the garden to keep the children occupied.
The newly built pool is situated to the front of the house to fully benefit from the open sea views and is designed longer and narrower than usual to allow swimmers to do their morning lengths! A “state of the art” pool shower and built in barbecue complete the outdoor areas and there are plenty of sunbeds and outdoor dining table and chairs as well as a long shaded terrace that runs the width of the house next to the pool.
The interior,with its wooden ceiling and eclectic mix of modern and antique/traditional pieces of furniture is spacious and relaxing. The spacious living room and dining area lead out to the front terrace and the small kitchen is situated (open plan) in a corner of this room. The living room has been equipped with a brand new Smart TV.
At the rear of the house is the main double bedroom (leading out to the rear patio and garden) with en suite shower room and the twin room with en suite shower room.
Ideal for couples and families as well (do note however that the minimum depth on the pool is 1.20m and there are no steps, only a ladder so care will need to be taken with very small children)
