Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8

Blue Note House is a 19th century fully furnished and renovated home with private pool. It has 4 rooms (sleeps 8) 4 bathrooms, a private pool, sea, mountain and castle hill views. It is located 100m from Assos beach & restaurants. The Eco-friendly architecture of the two-storey building reflects a traditional Mediterranean style, with thick stone-walls, private balconies for al fresco dining, barbeque, patios, sun terraces and a bougainvillea pergola.

At the heart of the small seaside fishing village of Assos, it is a very short walk (100m) from local amenities: the beach, two mini markets, a few tavernas, a cafe and a bar. The holiday villa is situated on a quiet and central location, not overlooked by any other properties. Blue Note House has unrestricted views over the sea at Assos bay, the surrounding green mountains, the picturesque village of Assos, the Venetian castle hill and the starry sky at night.

Eco-friendly elements
The holiday villa has bio-climatic features drawn from traditional Mediterranean architecture, such as thick stone-walls for added insulation, windows with shades, a dual aspect design for proper airing of spaces, natural shading and protection from northern winds, due to its location and orientation. A biological septic tank is used for wastewater treatment.

Outdoors Details
Blue Note House has great unrestricted views and it is centrally located and quiet, as it stands on elevated ground. The private covered garage is on street level. There is no direct access from the garage to the house. It can accommodate one small to medium size car. There is also a municipal free car park area 50 meters from the villa. In order to reach the external entrance of the house, you walk up about twenty stairs from street level.
There is a large bougainvillea pergola covering the lower ground patio, as you enter the villa grounds. One of the upper floor verandas enjoys ample natural shade from a very large Eucalyptus tree, while tents are also available. Thus it is very comfortable to sit outside, even during extreme heat or sunshine. If someone wishes to get a sun tan it is also possible to sit in the sun both on the verandas and the pool area. When dinning outdoors, you can easily transport dishes from the kitchen, as the main veranda dining area is located outside the kitchen & living area.
The two upper floor verandas both have built in sitting areas. Cushions are provided. To access the swimming pool area from the upper floor, you can go down the veranda staircase, without going through the ground floor. In the same way, you can access the upper floor from an external staircase, when coming in from outside.
Located on a separate level, the private swimming pool area is ideal for sunbathing, with a small pool (5x5x1.30meters), sunbeds, a small table and a small built-in charcoal barbecue.

Indoors Details
The main entrance to the house is on the ground level. As you enter, on the left, there is a large bedroom with a double bed, a study and en-suite bathroom with a shower enclosure. To the right, you can find a common lounge area, a shower room, a WC and a utility room with a washing machine. A second bedroom with two single beds (bunk bed) and a study is also situated there. Both bedrooms are equipped with large wardrobes and have their own independent access to the patio and the private swimming pool.
On the upper floor, there is a spacious sitting lounge with designer black leather sofas, coffee table, built-in shelves with French books, a fireplace, a dining table, a fully equipped functional open plan kitchen. On this floor, down the corridor, there is a large bedroom with a double bed and en-suite bathroom with a bathtub, a second bedroom with two single beds (bunk bed) and a bathroom with a shower enclosure. The whole floor is equipped with central air-conditioning. The kitchen and the main bedroom have access to two large verandas, with tents and built-in sitting areas, ideal for a lazy breakfast, sun tanning or dinner with sea and castle views. Both verandas are connected by separate staircases to the ground floor patio, the private swimming pool area and the villa entrance.
Each bedroom on both floors has independent access to the patios, sunny verandas and the swimming pool, in case someone feels like going outside without disturbing the other guests. If you feel like reading, the bedrooms and the living room area are furnished with built in shelves which contain a lot of French books, such as novels, car magazines and children's books, as well as games, sightseeing guides to Kefalonia, Zakynthos, and nearby Greek islands.
