Poros villa description
Classic old villa built in 1905. This property includes a Main House and a Guest House, each can accommodate up to 4 people. We are able to host up to 8 people maximum.
Villa Askedra is located on the mainland of Peloponneses, directly across of Poros Island. The property is privately situated near the waterfront at the Harbor Entrance on 7 acres of hillside.
The property offers old-world charm (original tile floors, decorative fireplace, antiques, piano) with commanding and unobstructed views of Poros Island, the Saronic Gulf, surrounding mountains, and other islands nearby. The home provides complete privacy and is sheltered by tall pine trees and cypress trees, which keeps it in the shade and cool. Lemon, orange, almond and olive trees can also be found on the property.
The villa is located in an ideal environment that is quiet, yet is only a five-minute walk to town and a two-minute water taxi ride to Poros Island for shopping, beaches, restaurants, and nightlife. There are west and east porch areas with dining areas to enjoy the sunrise and sunsets (the West Porch area is completely covered and sheltered by the sun). Perfect for couples, families, or those preferring a retreat-like setting. Discounts available to couples and smaller groups. Cleaning and linen changes are included, and a cook is available at an additional cost.

ReviewsWrite a review
My family and I (age from 10 to 70) had a wonderful week in the quiet, charming, historic Villa with impressive views of Poros and the Saronic Gulf surrounded by shady trees.The house was clean and the house and terrace features was very good and corresponded with the listing description and listing photos.The contact with Yako in advance and with Dora during the stay was very pleasant and helpful. We had a relaxing time with visits to various beaches, the amphitheater of Epidaurus and evening visits of Poros.Thanks again!

Villa Askedra was wonderful. It was more beautiful than the pictures, clean, comfortable, with outstanding views. The location was perfect, walking distance to Galatas, and water taxis to Poros, where buses ran to beaches, etc. Day trips were an easy drive to Hydra, Epidauros, Spetses, and we were always glad to return to our villa. The villa owners (in the U.S. and on-site) were extremely helpful with information and suggestions. It was our best vacation ever and we would recommend it to everyone who wants to "experience" Greece.

We had a wonderful time! Villa Askedra is a stunning property with phenomenal views of Poros and the surrounding bay from every corner. Yako was helpful in providing information about the area and attentive to our every need, could not have asked for a better host. We are definitely planning a trip back soon!!

Year Purchased: 1920
Why the Owner Chose Poros:
Our family has been visiting the Poros area since family members first vacationed here in the early 1900s. Our great grandparents resided in Athens and first visited the home in the summer of 1918 when it was used as a rental. They were able to purchase it just a few years later. We feel fortunate that the home remains in the family, and we continue to make trips and vacation here.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We enjoy the location and privacy that the property offers, while still being close to the town and near everything the area has to offer. We love being right at the harbor entrance and all the activity of the boats arriving and departing from/to neighboring islands, including the local fisherman. Grabbing a meal or visiting the beach couldn't be easier and within walking distance or a short drive
