Our private house is constructed over two levels due to the nature of the sloping site. The upper level provides all that is required for an enjoyable stay, and the swimming pool area is easily accessible, there are steps down from the driveway at the rear.


The property enjoys a generous sized plot overlooking the sea.
private villa terraceThe pool, although unheated, has been specially insulated and is located in a sun-trap. Local stone, materials and labour were used wherever possible.

Paul Griffiths was consultant designer of the gardens. Paul has worked previously on Gardeners World, Chelsea Flower Show and ‘The Urban Garden Show’. The project was challenging not least because of the levels involved. The fantastic plant resource on the island was used as a basis for the planting however it did become necessary to bring in new ideas and species from the mainland.


The Island has only one beach. It does however have many safe natural swimming areas, enhanced and improved, for the public to use. The nearest of these is directly in front of the Villa, less than a minute walk away.

Each village has its own swimming area favoured by locals and visitors alike. No two are the same. The variety of fish and under water life on show in these crystal clear waters is a wonder to behold. The refreshing unpolluted ocean is silky smooth to the skin.
