Alyki villa description

The peaceful Olive House, on the popular island of Paros in the Cyclades, is set on a hillside with sweeping views of the fields and the open sea. Built in 2005, the villa was designed as a classic island home with contemporary flair. It combines the best of Greek traditional living with super-comfy modern conveniences, and the terraced hillside is filled by an abundant flowering garden.

Light and airy, the house has an inviting open floor plan, and is surrounded by wrap-around terraces. The space flows beautifully from the verandas with their various dining and lounging areas, to the interior shared living spaces and bedrooms. The huge terrace facing the sea is easily accessible from all of the rooms connecting to it, and the shady terraces in the rear are surrounded by lemon trees and lavender.

The furniture is a mixture of comfortable modern pieces and carefully chosen antiques. With three bedrooms and three full baths, the Olive House sleeps six very comfortably. Cribs and toddler beds can be provided upon request. In a pinch, the house can accommodate eight or nine guests – as additional sleeping space is available on mattress-style sofas in the sunken living room. The master suite offers a luxurious oversized bathroom with a soaking tub for two and breathtaking views of the sea.

The house has a fully equipped modern kitchen and an indoor dining table to seat eight. Alternatively, guests can enjoy the spectacular views while dining outside at vast marble tables overlooking the Aegean and the neighboring island of Antiparos.

The villa is set high on a hillside known locally as 'Maggano', approximately 5 km northeast of the seaside fishing village of Alyki.

Olive House is certified by the Greek National Tourism Organization: EOT number 1175K92000976701.

ABOUT PAROS:

Paros sits at the center of the Cycladic islands in the Aegean sea. The Cyclades are some of the most popular Greek islands, due in large part to their beautiful sandy beaches and sparkling azure waters. Paros shares this blessing; the island's beaches are magnificent -- some bustling with bathers, music, kite surfers and windsurfers, others quiet and practically untouched. Golden Beach, Kolymbithres, and Santa Maria are likely the most well known and perhaps the most spectacular, although each corner of Paros offers its own coastal treasures. Visitors to the Olive House are likely to frequent Voutakos, Pygadaki & Alyki beaches – all within a 10-minute drive of the house and each with their unique charms.

The island's immediate neighbors include Antiparos, just across the way, and the islands of Syros and Mykonos to the north; Naxos to the east; Ios and Sikinos to the south; and Antiparos and Sifnos to the west. Also to the north is the archaeological site of Delos, one of the country's most historically significant sites. In summer, many ferry services connect these islands, making day-trips possible.

                              Paros sits at the center of Greece's Cycladic islands in the Aegean sea. Its immediate neighbors include the islands of Syros and Mykonos to the north; Naxos to the east; Ios and Sikinos to the south; and Antiparos and Sifnos to the west. Also to the north is the archaeological site of Delos, one of the country's most historically significant. Paros is truly an island with something for everyone -- perfect for families with small children, older travelers, and honeymooners alike. Beyond the obvious delights of the sea and sun, visitors will discover rich historical treasures, a diversity of art galleries, and excellent locally produced food and wine.

                              Other Activities: Paros is internationally known for fantastic kitesurfing. Shopping.

                               

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2005

                              About the owner: Our family has been spending time on the island for nearly 40 years.

                              Why the Owner Chose Alyki:
                              Generations of our family have been coming to Paros for decades and so we had this home designed and built especially for our young family.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                              The vast, wrap-around verandahs were designed to give spectacular views of the sea and mountains. Outside dining tables and seating areas are perfectly shaded and French doors around the whole property create an open floor plan between the modern interior and the gorgeous Greek landscape.
