A beautiful secluded tranquil paradise on the sea with stunning views
of mountains and islands.
Nisi (the island in Greek), is truly a unique and beautiful place to stay.
The small stone cottage, located on a ledge some 60 ft above the sea ,was built in the 1970's by Justin and Ursula Behrens..Their lives and the building of the cottage are described in the romantic tragedy entitled
" The Monument " by T. Behrens '
Millions of years ago the one hectare peninsula and its surroundings were subjected to extreme forces of nature
resulting in a near vertical rock strata of basalt and quartz which today shapes the gardens and paths as well as the seabed.
The cottage, although remote, boasts modern facilities including mains electricity and water, tv, internet and air conditioning.
Nisi is all about living by the sea with its ever changing moods, crystal clear water and amazing underwater scenery of valleys and ridges.
Occasionally a school of dolphins parade across the bay and on several occasions a lonesome male monk seal has brought chaos to the fisherman's nets.
The mysterious island of Skopa is situated a few hundred yards across the water.
The entrance to the property is from a parking area just off a hard surface road. There are two ways down to the house.
Firstly, a foot path which is a little steep and rocky in places but easily manageable. It is a 10 minute walk and takes in stunning views of mountains to the left and right with a sea vista of (on a clear day) the island of Kythera over 40 km away. The second way is a rough track a kilometre in length which starts just to the West of the car parking area through the sheep farm. Using this track the Kawasaki Mule 4WD (available for the use of the guests) or any small 4WD vehicle can carry people and goods between the car parking place and the house.
