Enjoying the evening stroll back from a traditional taverna in Antipata (500m), we congratulated ourselves on a super evening, trying local delicacies, accompanied by a robust bottle of local Robola wine. Having the freedom to wander into the village is a definite advantage, whilst cosmopolitan Fiscardo is only 3km with shops, tavernas and bars centred around the harbour. Anestis is in the heart of the Erissos peninsula, the woodlands, terraced vine groves and crumbling Venetian houses making walking and exploring a delight.
This handsome stone house is beautifully located amidst terraced gardens, and the private swimming pool and generous terrace enjoy an amazing panorama across dense lush Cypress trees that complement the deep Mediterranean blue of the Ionian sea. Lefkas and Meganissi are neighbouring islands that can be seen on clear days, creating such superb views it is hard to concentrate on the holiday read.
The kidney shaped pool is a dash of blue in front of the beige sandstone villa, featuring a sloping ceramic roof and broad balcony that wraps itself around the ground floor. A pergola above the outdoor dining area allows al fresco meals to be enjoyed in the cooling shade.
Inside, the living area is open plan, with charming exposed brickwork, a wooden pitched ceiling,elegant leather sofas and classic décor creating a relaxed harmonious setting, at once informal and appealing.
The dining/kitchen area continues the spacious feeling, and two twin bedrooms boast French doors that open onto the same patio where the elevated position takes in the vistas. On the first floor, the double bedroom has its own private balcony and pergola, looking out at the open countryside and sparkling sea beyond, the temptation to sit and watch the stunning sunsets with a glass of something chilled is hard to resist!
