February 17, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

The house is in the village of Polopos in beautiful wild hilly countryside.It is a restored traditional old cottage-style house on two floors, with wooden-beamed ceilings and terracotta tiled floors. It has three rooms and a shower room downstairs, and two rooms upstairs, one of which opens onto a terrace about 12 feet square with a bamboo sunscreen, which has a panoramic view of the hills and the Mediterranean sea. There are two bedrooms, one has a double bed and one a single.

The house is simply not luxuriously furnished in a traditional style with comfortable cane and pine furniture, and has all necessary amenities : electric hot water, shower, fridge,a butane gas cooker,both electric heaters and heaters run from butane gas,and also a wood-burning stove.. It is perhaps better suited to younger people or active older people ; the steps up to the first floor are quite steep,(see photo on site). There is no TV or washing machine, but washloads can be done by the couple in the village who look after my house. There is an atmosphere of peace and quiet in the village. Is is perfect for walking, relaxing and dreaming.
