Andreas and his wife, Vassia, completed the building of their hilltop retreat in 2011. With no immediate neighbours and surrounded by olive groves, there is total privacy.
Vassia is an artist and an art teacher. Her paintings hang in the villa.
Villa Antigoni looks down a hillside of silver olive trees, over the waterfront houses of Gaios port to the forested offshore island of St Nicholas and across the sea to the Greek mainland. The Venetian fortress and the ancient nunnery of the tiny offshore islands of St. Nicholas and Panayia are clearly visible.
The villa’s natural theatre of Gaios and the skies introduces the comings and goings of yachts and fishing boats, constant colour changes and a nocturnal choreography of twinkling harbour lights and the stars.
Spacious interiors on the first floor open out on to an intimate dining terrace, framed by light white curtains, with spectacular views.
The waterfront tavernas and shops of Gaios are just a 10 minute walk away yet there is a special feeling of detached seclusion at the Villa Antigoni.
Private pool 8 x 4 metres & depth 0.85 - 1.8 metres. There is a child-safety gate to close off the pool terrace from the villa.
Maid service 5 days per week & linen change twice weekly
