Villa Alto Mare

Seafront property, breathtaking sea views, private pool, beach 400m, near Fiscardo

Sleeps: 8

Bedrooms: 4

€1495 – €5100/wk

‘Alto Mare’ – meaning ‘the wide sea’ in Italian – your Agent’s own villa, was built as a stunning private home. This luxury 240m² villa has breathtaking, uninterrupted, sea views, 4 bedrooms and 2 private swimming pools, and is located just 400m from the beach. And Italy itself is 200 miles away beyond the blue horizon, across the wide open Ionian Sea. Nestled on a hillside surrounded by lush vegetation, the sunset views from this villa are quite spectacular. The small beach of Alaties – with it’s beautiful crystal-clear water, natural salt pools, and a charming Italian-run beach bar/restaurant – is just a 5mins walk (400m) away. The pretty, famous, fishing village of Fiscardo is just 10mins (8km) down the road.

 

The stylish villa’s chic, open-plan living area is furnished with a tasteful selection of antique Balinese and contemporary designer furniture, and there is direct access to the upper terraces and main swimming pool. The open, American-style kitchen is fully-equipped to a very high standard, making it perfect for family use. Each of the 4 bedrooms is air conditioned and furnished with a double bed – 3 of them benefitting from sea views and direct access to the terrace.

 

Outdoors, relax on the comfortable rattan seating on the 300m2 teak decking and gaze out over the wide blue yonder, lounge under the sun by one of the 2 swimming pools, or sip a glass of wine while enjoying the amazing sunsets – all in total privacy.

 

Villa Alto Mare is the perfect holiday home for those seeking a combination of luxury and seclusion, but within easy reach of local amenities.

About the owner

“I ran a successful restaurant business in Fiscardo from the early 1990s. It took me some time to locate the perfect plot to build my home, but I finally found it and finished building Villa Alto-Mare in 2001.

 

After selling my small business, I took a break and spent amazing long Summers with family and friends in this exceptional setting. I decided to rent the villa in 2008 and it’s success was immediate. Holidaymakers fell in love with my house and half of those who now rent it are returning guests!

 

I am still able to make the most of my place in the Autumn and early Spring, and in the Summer I live 5 km away on the east coast. I potter around the coves in my little speedboat, and enjoy an excellent quality of life in this magical place. But, to tell you the truth, I do miss my stunning Summer sunsets at Alto Mare…”
