All these years we have worked in the Istron Bay Hotel, among people who came again and again for their holidays, praising the precious light, the innumerable colours and sounds of the earth and the sea and the feeling of being truthfully welcome.
In year 2000 we took a decisive step. It was clear by then that for some people, independence and privacy would be more important than all the amenities a hotel could offer. The idea was simple and inspired.
We created a group of four luxury villas each with its own pool, in the same bay with the hotel, near enough to enjoy all the facilities, yet far enough away to be protected. It worked out so well that, three years later, powered this time by visitors' appreciation and our gained experience, we presented another group of self-catering villas.
Three bedroom villa with pool (101 s.m.). Ask for a quote.
Villa Artemis consists of three bedrooms, a well-appointed living room and kitchen area. The main characteristic of this villa is its spacious stone flagged terrace (140 s.m.). As this villa is on the top of this complex it offers mesmerizing panoramic views of the surrounding vegetation and provides extreme privacy.
The complex is just 250m from the renowned beach of Istron Bay Hotel which has been honoured with the prestigious blue-flag award for 18 years in a row.
The cosy living room (37 s.m) combines a sitting area with a dining area and a fully equipped kitchen. It has comfortable sitting furniture; 28" LCD satellite TV, home cinema/stereo, free Wi-fi Internet connection, telephone and a fireplace.
The villa is well insulated and fully air-conditioned. Its orientation (south to southwest) and the fact that it has large windows secures the ideal amount of sunshine for the whole season and provides a breathtaking view of green gardens and the bay (side sea view) evoking peacefulness.
Villa Artemis has three comfortable bedrooms with their own bathrooms. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom with a bathtub. The other bedrooms have bathrooms with a shower, one of them en suite. All bathrooms are tiled with white marble.
Its main terrace, which offers its guests much needed privacy, has a private pool, approximately 8 x 4 s.m., a sunbathing area, with shaded areas designed to offer privacy, a parasol, sun lounges and a bamboo sitting area. Those who enjoy dining alfresco can take advantage of the wooden gazebo placed on the terrace (barbecues are available upon request). In the gazebo there is a marble top table and a stone sitting bench hosting 8 people easily.The patio swing offers a unique view of the surrounding wild nature and the now world famous Aegean sunsets.
