Anyone staying at this most attractive villa must feel that they have the best seats in the house when it comes to spectacular views. Its terraces and balconies take full advantage of its hillside situation, making it quite likely that reading a book, completing the Sudoko challenge, or writing postcards will be abandoned in favour of contemplating the massive limestone crags of Mount Pantocrator and the glittering sweep of Barbati Bay. Amphithea contrasts classic style and modern decorating ideas with an interior that is spacious and has a very contemporary feel about it.
A short flight of stairs leads down from the efficiently planned kitchen/ dining room level to the sitting room, which in its turn opens on to a covered verandah equipped with stylish rattan seating and having access to the pool area. In the height of summer, hillside houses such as this offer a retreat from busy roads and crowded beaches, with the added benefit of mountain breezes. All this lies at the end of a rather steep road, but only one kilometre from the lovely beaches and comprehensive amenities of Nissaki.
