The stone house has a fantastic view of Alagonia and Taygeto's mountain peaks: a lush greenery with birdsong in spring and autumn and if you are lucky a few magical days with a quiet white landscape in winter. In this area you have the opportunity to experience four seasons: each with its own charm.

Aluminum doors and windows with double glazing, air heating elements, purifier system for water (which comes from its own well), own electricity via solar panels and a modern safety system as well as water and sprinkler systems around the house. Here you have low operating costs and if you have an interest in growing your own food, you have the chance to be completely self-sufficient. The house has beautiful and original details: mosaic decoration inserted in the high-quality tile floor, beams of chestnut trees (the material actually comes from the garden), beautiful wooden floors upstairs and decorative stone walls.

The plot and cultivated land

The large plot is fenced, landscaped in comfortable terraces and has automatic irrigation system. Water (coming from the mountains) is collected in a large tank of 75 cubic meters: no risk of trees and plants drying out! On the plot there is also an outbuilding where the current owner had 200 egg-producing chickens. The area is known for a very high quality of arable land and not so long ago large companies used to come here to dig up the soil and sell it as flower soil in garden stores throughout Greece.

Previously, the owner had potato farm (about 3 tons of potatoes annually) where the largest single potato weighed 2,5 kg! Today you will find apples, pears, cherries, figs, walnuts, olive trees for olive oil and olive trees for table olives on the plot. You can harvest this in one year:

  • Apples: about 700-800 kg at least and every year
  • Cherries: about 600-700 kg at least and every year
  • Olive oil: about 100 liters at least and every year

It is good to know that the area has visitors and tourists all year round. This makes the house easy to rent out to visitors if desired.
