A gorgeous climate, a healthy and pristine environment, a clear blue sea, ancient wonders, space to breathe, elegant surroundings, luxury, real privacy, and time to think.

The Estate is one of the largest and most beautiful private country estates in Greece, and perhaps in all of the Balkans. Located 1 ½ hours by car, or 15 minutes by helicopter, from Athens, amid numerous prominent ancient sites, the estate is just a 15 minute drive to the sea.

The Estate is a 1,615 stremata (400 acre) estate, approximately ¼ of which is mature orchards and vineyard, encircled by a lush private forest. A natural bowl in shape, extending to the tops of the surrounding mountains, it combines privacy and seclusion, with accessibility to the sea, to Athens and to many of Greece's most important ancient sites, including the Theatres and Asclepion of Epidaurus, Mycenae, Tyrinth, Corinth, Argos, Olympia, Mistra, Nemea and the Palamidi of Nauplio.

All-weather graded dirt roads connect the estate on two sides to nearby paved roads. A main highway connects the area with Corinth and Athens, as well as Nauplio, Porto Heli, Kilada, and other nearby points of interest in Peloponnesus.

A bower of immense natural beauty, the Estate enjoys a view of the sea from one of its promontories, as well as exquisite forested and agricultural views throughout.

The property has operated as a fruit, olive and nut orchard, vineyard and horse farming estate since the early 1970's.

Accomodation

The 700 m2 stone Manor House is located on one of the hillsides, with commanding views of the valley and of distant mountain ranges. The Manor House sleeps up to 14 people in seven bedrooms, each with en-suite bathroom.

The master bedroom has a separate dressing room and both His and Hers bathrooms. The drawing room, dining room and VIP bedroom boast cathedral ceilings, with exposed beams.

A massive marble fireplace presides over the Drawing Room, and an elegant stone fireplace accents the Library. The Manor House also claims a gourmet kitchen, with pantry and breakfast area.

Heating is oil-fired and under-floor throughout. Extensive verandas and a covered Loggia overlook the entire valley, the flower and herb gardens and a stunning 16m x 8m heated swimming pool.

The landscaping was conceived by a Chelsea Flower Show Gold Award winner, and adapted by an English landscape architect, noted for his work on the Victoria and Albert Museum gardens.

The Manor House also has a large home theatre, games room, gymnasium, wine cellar, two bed-room caretaker's flat and four car garage. The property enjoys walled security, automatic gates, and comprehensive intruder alarm and surveillance camera systems.

The Estate is a world class private country estate, as well as a stunning agricultural and wildlife preserve. The estate is an operating farm, whose orchards include Olive, Apricot, Pear, Clementine, Orange, Grapefruit, Pistachio, Walnut, Hazelnut, Pecan, Almond, Fig, Apple and Quince trees. The mature Vineyard consists of grapevines of the Roma, Hamburg, Espana and Roditis varieties. The estate produces its own wine, and is endowed with abundant and extremely pure natural water resources.

Staffing:
A small, talented and effective team

The Estate experienced staff includes a farm manager, a multi-skilled farm hand / handiman, and a superb housekeeper. This team has worked together for many years; it knows and understands every aspect of the property, its plantings, buildings and needs. Additional laborers are occasionally brought in from the local villages to help out with harvesting.
Between them, the staff speak English, German, Bulgarian and Russian; all, of course, speak Greek.
