The Double House
This property was once three small, derelict, cottages until they were acquired by the present owner who then spared no expense in transforming them into just one wonderfully comfortable, spacious and very special holiday home.
This really is a most spectacular house with a splendid harbourside location and a whole host of unusual and interesting features.
In common with all of our properties you will find that this house skilfully combines a traditional Greek ambience with modern luxuries such as marble shower rooms, a sensational open plan kitchen and, of course, air conditioning throughout.
The Double House accommodates up to 8 people and the cost includes all of the facilities listed below.
