The property is comprised of 2 villas measuring 100 m2 each, which are close enough to share daily life, and far apart enough to offer necessary privacy (they are never rented out separately). Both villas are surrounded by large terraces paved with old bricks. In fact there are 9 different terraces/courtyards at varying levels for you to enjoy every corner and view that the outdoor space affords. The property sleeps 8 adults, or 6 adults and 2 children, and the 2 double bedrooms in each villa benefit from the stunning sea views, their own private terraces, and are air conditioned. High quality outdoor furniture includes a ‘Dedon’ rattan sofa and armchairs, as well as a large, beautiful marble dining table made by the owner. The interior is furnished with a tasteful selection of antique and designer furniture.
This is a unique property furnished with exquisite taste, set in 2 acres of unspoilt forest. The landscaping of its beautiful Mediterranean garden blends with the surrounding countryside, and automatic lighting magically illuminates it at night.
Mrs Fanouakis, an internationally well-known jewellery designer who’s family hail originally from Kefalonia, and her husband who was born in Crete, fell in love with the island many years ago. The couple already had a property on the island of Spetses, but their new dream became to build a holiday home for themselves here on the exceptional piece of land they had found.
Their eye for design is evident in the house they have built. It’s a house that perfectly reflects their personalities: it is stylish, but understated, with a personal collection of beautifully-designed objects and furniture – some of which are unique.
The house is available for rent for part of the Summer and has, over the years, become a hideaway for certain celebrities, from Hollywood actors and well-known sports people, to Florentine art dealers – the list is lengthening.
The owners have created a personal and unique space.
