This property has served its purpose as a family holiday-home for nearly 40 years and the time has now come to change ownership!
Designed and build by its current and only owners back to the early 1980s', this 2-Bedroom / 1-Bathroom (90 square-meter) Rural Villa is now for sale. As the owners - a Greek retired couple living permanently in Athens are now getting to an age, the distance of 300Km from Athens is making it progressively more difficult for them to visit as frequently as they used to and enjoy it to its full potential.
Located on a hill outside the village of 'Dafni', near to the City of 'Amaliada' on the north-western coast of Peloponnese, this Villa offers great views of the surrounding areas and it's the ideal place for hiking and cycling enthusiasts! With numerous on and off road trails for walking and cycling and just a few kilometres away from 'Pineios Dam & Lake', the opportunities offered for a healthy and relaxing lifestyle, close to nature and away from stressful city-living are endless!
The property (all electric) has all the amenities required - including air-conditioning (for hot & cold air) and a log-burner fire-place in the Lounge. Although the infrastructure (pipes) exists for a central heating system, the current owners have not installed one as the combination of air-conditioning units and fire-place have sufficed to provide them with what was required in terms of temperature-control throughout the year!
With 0,1325 hectare (1325 square meters) of securely fenced land surrounding the villa and a beautiful garden on the east side of the plot, the property offers endless opportunities for gardening and growing crops throughout the year as the local climate promotes such activities to the maximum.
The villa is currently fully furnished and there is the option for most (if not all) electrical appliances and furniture to be sold with the property - as part of the asking price! There is also a single car-port and a 15 square-meter store-room for tools and equipment. There are also lockable store-rooms under balconies for additional storage and open / external storing places for logs.
The village of 'Dafni' is within walking distance and basic amenities are available there such as a mini-market. Nearest city is 'Amaliada' - located 12Km away from the property, or a 16-minute drive. As 'Amaliada' is a city of 20,000 people, it offers all the amenities one can ask for - including a cinema, occasional theatrical plays and music festivals over the summer.
For the funs of sea-swimming and coastal walking, the coast of 'Kourouta' - amongst the best sandy beaches in Greece, is only 18,5Km / 27-minute drive away. 'Kourouta' is a full-coastal resort and therefore, there are numerous opportunities and activities available for entertainment there throughout the day - between April and October.
The property can also be used as a 'gateway' for exploring the islands of 'Ionian' Sea! With the port of 'Kyllini' at 36,5Km / 35-minute drive away, access can be easily gained to the ferries leaving from there for the islands of 'Zante' and 'Kefallonia'!
Adding to the flavour, the villa is easily accessible from 'Araxos' Airport (near the city of 'Patras') - located 45Km / 51-minutes drive away! There are numerous flights directly from UK airports to 'Araxos' Airport between April & October and therefore access from and to is relatively easy for the better and warmer half of the year.
Alternatively and over the winter months, Athens' International Airport is 316Km / 3,5 hours-drive away.
Finally, easy access from the villa via car to a number of tourist attractions is available - such as: Ancient Olympia Archaeological Site & Museum, Traditional mountain-villages of 'Ilia' and 'Arcadia', Ancient Theatre of 'Ilida' and many others.
This property is away from the crowds but not far away from anything you can think of doing as part of exploring the Greek culture!
