  • Eco-friendly

Paleo Petres, meaning Old Stones, is situated just above Nissaki and is one of the finest villas in the area, blending subtle designer styling with a magnificent hillside location which it shares with the equally beautiful Petrapoula. The house is imposing yet unobtrusive, recently constructed yet blending seamlessly into the landscape as though sharing a long and illustrious history with the ancient gnarled olive trees which surround it.

The interiors are Farrow-&-Ball-fabulous, with the entire ground floor given over to luxurious living space and a bespoke, handmade kitchen. The outdoor space is no less impressive, with a shady dining terrace and pool pergola, looking out over a full, 180-degree arc of deepest Ionian blue. This villa was constructed from locally sourced and reclaimed wood and stone, combined with an eco-friendly climate control system to showcase modern Greek building at its most progressive and best.

Although Paleo Petres and Petrapoula  share a driveway, they are completely detached and separated by high stone walls ensuring privacy for all guests; they may also be rented jointly to provide a spacious venue for groups or an extended family gathering.

Our choice of Greek properties is as diverse as the islands themselves, ranging from simple seaside charm to genuine luxury and style. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide. We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal. To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.
