A truly unique 1806 historic mansion in a charismatic location in Spetses island, beautifully renovated, unravels the glorious history and the cosmopolitan spirit of the sophisticated island.
Hiding in an alleyway in a quiet part of the centre of the charming town of Spetses, the impressive 200 years old stone building, placed on the Statutory List of Buildings of Special Architectural and Historic Interest, will steal your heart at first sight. The same goes for the unique, large 1000 sq.m. courtyard with the characteristic rare pebbled mosaics of the island, full of old trees, like palm, olive and lemon trees, and a variety of colourful flowers. The various sitting areas spread around the garden await you to relax and enjoy family moments in privacy: from peaceful reading in the big sofas to barbeques and local dishes cooked in the built-in traditional wood oven.
Entering the mansion, you will be impressed by this charming marriage of history and contemporary elegant taste. The house, belonging to the same family for seven generations, has been recently renovated to provide all modern facilities, after careful study in respect to the special architectural characteristics.
Pale colours, traditional and modern furniture, beautiful details like the old fireplaces, handmade carpets, antique ceramics, give the tone in the inside of the house. The atmospheric dining and living room and the characterful kitchen are on the ground floor, along with a twin bedroom with an en-suite marble bathroom. The two elegant master bedrooms on the first floor have beautiful sea views, while one of them opens up to a large terrace with sunbeds overlooking the sea and the chapel of Agios Mamas. A study with a telescope with panoramic sea view is another beautiful corner.
The location is very convenient, just 3 minutes’ walk from the port and Dapia piazza, 10 minutes’ walk from the cosmopolitan Old Harbor and just around the corner (about 80 meters) from the sandy beach of Agios Mamas.
