Villa Kataraktis is situated at the bottom of the Kataraktis steps which lead to Chorio, the upper village. The house is within five minutes walking distance from the head of the harbor where the taxi boats leave for the beaches and around the island. But the villa itself is surrounded by hills and quiet countryside. The upper apartment has a stylish living room with a dining area which seats up to six around a walnut wooden table. This room opens onto a balcony with stunning views over the harbor and the sea towards the rolling hills of Turkey close by. With windows on both sides you always appreciate a fresh breeze through the house. Upstairs are two bedrooms both in the fascinating Greek mousandra style - with staircases leading to the double beds. Downstairs are also two bedrooms. The spacious double beds are in typical Symian style and placed on wooden platforms giving plenty of storage space in the drawers and cupboards beneath.

About Wilhelm Furler
I'm living in Hamburg, Germany. I worked as a financial and economic journalist as well as editor in chief for various German newspapers and magazines.
Why Wilhelm Furler chose Symi
Villa Kataraktis is situated very close to the lower part of Symi (Gialos) with the port and its various shops. At the same time it crouches at the upper edge of the village in complete quietness. The view from the front of the house is spectacular overlooking both the village with ist harbor and the sea. The land at the back of the house stretches into the hillside of the island. I bought this magnificent property immediately after I fell in love into Symi when I first visited it some 30 years ago.
