Diodendra is a beautiful villa situated in the Peloponese region of Greece, 2 hr drive from Athens. Stunning views across the Gulf of Corinth from the extensive balconies, & the swimming pool which was recently refurbished. Sleeps 8 in 4 bedrooms with flexibility for 10 guests. 5 min drive to closest taverna, 10 min drive to beach, 20 min drive to Akrata (closest town). Surrounded by mountains and beaches, with a plethora of easy day trip opportunities to ancient Greek sites and vineyards.

The space
The villa is very spacious and on three levels. From the driveway, a stone stairway leads up from the garden to the central level of the property. Here there is a stunning open-plan living space with floor to ceiling glass doors to take in the immensity of the sea view. Comfortable sofas and armchairs surround the fireplace, and an 'Observatory' area with leather reclining chairs and telescope is to the right of this. There is an elegant dining area for 10 guests and a well equipped kitchen. From the glass doors, guests can enjoy the really spacious veranda that runs the length of the property.

On the veranda is an outdoor dining table for 10-12 as well as free-standing barbecue. From the kitchen, a door leads down some steps to the pool area and main barbecue with 2nd outdoor dining area.

On the central level there is also a twin bedroom with en-suite shower and WC. This bathroom can be accessed either from the hallway or directly from the bedroom.

Upstairs there are three bedrooms. The master bedroom with en-suite bath, shower and WC and private veranda with wonderful sea views, and a twin bedroom and a double bedroom which share a bathroom with shower and WC. These two bedrooms also have access to a large veranda which looks straight out over the sea.

On the lowest level of the house at garden level is a lounge-bar with comfortable futons and TV area. There is a futon that converts into a double bed and also a bathroom with shower and WC on this level. Doors from this lounge area lead directly out to the pool terrace. Your gaze is instantly drawn to the seemingly endless sea views before you. There are plenty of sun loungers, umbrellas and a great barbecue/outdoor dining area.

Platanos, Greece

The views of the Gulf are breathtaking. You have to visit Vasilis at ‘restaurant’ to sample Greek food as it should be! Relaxing under the 100 year old olive tree on a Sunday afternoon enjoying a feast is just perfection.

The local village is situated below the villa (2 mins by car or a 10 min walk - though it is uphill on the way back). It is a traditional village lively in the summer months with Athenian families who holiday here. There is a very pretty village square with a cafe as well as two tavernas and a bar that is set within a leafy garden. The nearest beaches are about a 10 min drive away including the excellent Corral Beach Bar-Restaurant with its Ibiza style atmosphere and beautiful setting. There are plenty of shops in the local town a 20 min drive away as well as many tavernas and cafes. Within a day's trip are many interesting historical and archaelogical sites including Ancient Corinth, Mycenae, the Venetian towns of Nafplion and Nafpaktos as well as the ancient site of Delphi and the Neo-Classical town of Galaxidi by the sea. For guests who enjoy walking, hiking and cycling it is a perfect spot to enjoy the surrounding nature of mountains, gorges, rivers and lakes and the many traditional stone villages found within these areas.

Villa Diodendra is an excellent property from which to enjoy many aspects that Greece has to offer within a traditional setting.

As a mum of 2 small children, I know how important it is to find the right holiday home. Making memories is precious and so is time! Since our family and many friends have spent so many wonderful holidays in our house, we decided we will do our best for our guests to experience the same relaxing and soothing days we have become so accustomed to. In all our travels abroad we have always been treated with warmth and hospitality and that is a feeling we want to give back.
