The Italian's House | Sleeps 6 | from £765.00 / €890.00 per week
A very popular property, The Italian's House is a charming home situated under a beautiful olive tree giving the house a sense of coolness, tranquillity and relaxation. A short walk to Alaties beach and located within beautiful countryside.
The large internal living area is open plan and generous in size, with an open kitchen, dining and a sitting area. The front patio, shaded by olive trees and bougainvillea has lovely views of the sea and countryside, a perfect place to enjoy the glorious sunsets. Wide doors give a sense of continuity between interior and exterior spaces.
All 3 bedrooms have direct access to the garden and terraces. The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom with a shower and there is a further bathroom, again with a shower. On the back patio, shaded by trees, is an outdoor shower (with hot water), providing a perfect way to cool down after lounging on the terrace in the sunshine.
The Italian's House is within easy walking distance to the beach, approximately 800 metres, down to the sea at Alaties, with crystal clear water and a taverna/bar. Just 2 kilometres from the house is another beautiful beach, Agia Jerusalem with sun beds and umbrellas available to hire during high season and a taverna serving traditional Greek food.

"We would like to come again!!".
"This is a house with a heart and a lot of taste! The location is quiet and idyllic, with the sound of goat’s bells and a strip of the Ionian see as scenery! The bedrooms are comfortable and extremely clean. A nearby cove and a beach at a five minutes drive each is a must".
"A lovely property which is close walking distance to one of the most delightful beaches in the North of the island with the most fabulous sunsets. A car is highly recommended for exploring the island. We loved the outdoor shower!"
"Great location. Close to beaches. We felt at home immediately".
"We had high expectations to the Italian's House and on arrival we were still blown away by this property and it's stylish decoration inside and out. In short - wow! The interior is in very good condition, super stylish decoration, clean and very spacious for 6 people. The exterior offers many beautiful spots to sit and read a book in the shade under the old olive trees. The best, however, is the beach a short drive away, with its clear waters and beautiful white pebbles and limestone formations, where we spent most of our time. And of course the beach bar/restaurant that serves delicious meals, cocktails and sunsets! The nearby town has great options for lunch, dinner and basic shopping. We will be back for sure!"

Beaches we like to visit
Within 5 minutes drive or 10 minutes walk (800m away)
Alaties beach is small but perfectly formed where you can lap up the sunshine either on the beach itself or on the surrounding rocks. There’s good parking available and a beach bar serving food all day and into the evening where you can watch the sun set with a cocktail in hand.
Agia Jerusalem beach is a pebble beach with crystal clear water making for great paddling, swimming and if you like to snorkel it's worth swimming out to the rocks where you will find much more marine life than in the bay itself. In high season sun-beds are available for hire on the beach and there is a taverna serving traditional Greek food.
Within 15 minutes drive
Emblissi beach just outside of Fiskardo is easily accessible, has great swimming, wonderful views across to Lefkas and Meganisi. There's good parking although it does get busy in July and August.
Foki beach is in a protected bay with a shady olive grove and a cave to swim to and explore as well as a taverna close-by.
Kimilia beach is a hidden gem accessible only by boat or by foot by following a winding forest path. We recommend you take food and as there are no facilities at the beach.
Dafnoudi beach with its crystal clear water is worth the 10-15 minute hike down from where you park. Of course you can also access the beach by boat. We recommend you take food and water as there are no facilities at the beach.
