First impressions are vitally important, and your initial glimpse of Mokoras will have you slipping into the inviting pool within minutes of arrival. Set amidst wooded hillsides that fold in to afford a wedge-shaped view of a glittering blue sea, this beautiful villa promises to revive all your senses. Little but the sound of the cicadas in the trees and the laughter of those enjoying the pool disturbs the tranquility of the surrounding olive grove.
For a larger house sleeping ten, Mokoras feels remarkably intimate, with natural colours complementing sophisticated furnishings, including four-poster double beds. Ground floor rooms open to a shady veranda, while upstairs bedrooms have their own terrace and views towards the rugged Albanian coast. The pool terrace is delightful, shaded on one side by tall trees, and featuring a roofed outdoor dining room with built-in barbecue. Backed by old vineyards once cultivated by the villagers, the small and very pretty Yialiskari beach lies below the villa, just a short walk away, with plenty of rocky ledges and overhangs for snorkellers to explore and flat pebbles for sun-worshippers.
