Villa Julia is ideally situated in the northwest side of the island and only five minutes drive from the port, offering majestic views of the latter as well as of the Aegean and the islands of Kea and Syros.
What makes this side of the island exciting (apart from the obvious upside of being close to the port and the market area) is its magnificent beaches. Secluded and of unique beauty, the beaches of Vitali and Zorgos are only a 20 minutes drive from the house, whereas you needn’t drive more than 10 minutes to reach the more popular Golden Beach, Agios Petros and Fellos. Moreover, the heart of the island’s nightlife, the picturesque village of Batsi known for its cute bars and tasteful little tavernas, is just 25 minutes away.
The house, built on a cliff overlooking Gavrion, combines the advantages of being close to the market and the island’s hot spots with an atmosphere of complete and serene seclusion, it is –in other words- the perfect place for you to unwind and relax.
Built in absolute harmony with its environment the house features elements of stone and wood (as well as of the characteristic “xerolithia” -dry stone walls- Cyclades’ most typical architectural element) and is divided between the main building and the guest house. A beautifully paved, covered terrace connects those two buildings while offering exquisite views, it surely is the ideal spot for you to enjoy your breakfast or a glass of wine in the afternoon.
The house’s magnificent and extremely spacious exterior however, extends even further to the pool area: The big swimming pool (operating from May till October every year) gives the impression of hanging from the cliff and if you decide to relax on its side and stare at the horizon you will feel as if you are swimming inthe Aegean. The pool area also offers a great spot for relaxing and dining, being equipped with an external shower as well as a wc, a built barbeque place and a bar area. From the pool you can always climb the few steps leading to the property’s small church.
The interior of the house is decorated in eclectic style and to the utmost detail, providing you with a homey, exciting feeling. From the colorful kitchen to the all-white, relaxing living room and the spacious bedrooms the house combines pieces of furniture designed by contemporary greek artists with traditional details. The main building consists of a bright open space kitchen, a comfy living room and a lovely dining area, along with a guest wc, a maid’s room and of course the floor’s master bedroom with en-suite bath and a king size bed. Adjoining to this room an office/ extra living room (which can also be transformed to an extra bedroom) offers magnificent sea views.
The staircase leads to the upperfloor floor, occupied by the second bedroom (again with an en-suite bathroom) which has two single beds and a magnificent covered veranda with a stone couch and unlimited views of the sea.
The guest house is also divided in two floors. The ground floor consists of an open space living room (with a sofa bed), a kitchenette and a bathroom while the top floor hosts the main bedroom with its queen sized bed and a spacious veranda.
Behind the main building, an extra guest room (in a rock-cut style) offers two more single beds along with a small bathroom and the laundry area. The house also has an external stone oven and a deep freezer. We can arrange for daily cleaning service upon request and we will be more than happy to provide you with suggestions concerning the island’s must visit spots.
Ideal for the summer or the winter period (the house has a central heating system, however winter rates don’t include heating cost), this large estate will help you relax and enjoy the endless blue of the Aegean.
We look forward to welcoming you in our house.
