Description

The Artemis Villa is in the location of Mylos in Irakleia, 150 meters above sea level, right at the natural heart of the Cyclades island group. From its three terraces and eleven perimetrical windows one can enjoy beautiful views of the islands of Milos, Kimolos, Sifnos, Antiparos, Paros, Tinos, Naxos, Donoussa, Schoinoussa, Koufonissi, Amorgos and, last but not least, Keros, the legendary birthplace of Early Cycladic civilisation.

The Artemis Villa is a 130-square-meter stone structure (230 sqm including the terraces). It's made of local rock following traditional bioclimatic architecture, so air conditioning is unnecessary -- in fact, even on the hottest nights, the sea breeze surrounding the area calls for a light blanket.

In this stone-made boat, wind and sea are the only sounds in one's ears, as it is located in a solitary spot reached by a rugged 1-km-long path inaccessible to regular motor vehicles (hence, an off-road, 5-seater, 1,600 cc car is included

In the Artemis Villa one can relax in complete privacy. Silence, the starshine and the remote dim lights in the surrounding islands combine to create the unique experience of seclusion at the heart of the Cyclades. There are no houses or shops that meet the eye, and this is why the villa is fully equipped and self-sufficient.

There will be no prying eyes while you walk nude among the cedar trees and the thyme plants. You are all alone. The quietness of the surroundings, the views, the Robinson Crusoe experience, combined with all modern comforts, the beaches and Irakleia's two villages just 2 km away, all this is the real luxury of a stay in the Artemis Villa.

The villa has three terraces, each with a different orientation, so that one can enjoy memorable moments not minding the winds (north, south or west) - one of them offers a beautiful view of the sunset behind Antiparos and Sifnos. The two main terraces are equipped with large dinner tables and eight deck chairs.

Thanks to the stone walls and the traditional joints, the inside of the house is always cool, at around 18 to 20 degrees centigrade. One can use the breeze and the house windows as a natural AC, adjusting the temperature by up to 3 degrees.

The main house has a large living room (around 70 square metres) with book shelves, a traditional stone-made fireplace, hi-fi audio equipment, two sofas and a small writing desk. It offers everyone sea views wherever they sit.

Adjacent to the living room there is a large open kitchen with its own dining room, with all modern city-house appliances (refrigerator, stove, dish washer, coffee and espresso maker, toaster). The dining table can seat eight and they are all guaranteed a view of the sea and the neighbouring or more distant islands.

At the back, a small hallway leads to the two bedrooms and the bathroom. One bedroom faces Amorgos and the other Antiparos.

The "Amorgos" bedroom is suitable for hosting two children, adolescents or adults. It has a bed built against the wall with a new, top-quality mattress, a sofa-bed (2mX1.30m), a small desk, a book shelf and a large cupboard with all the necessary bed linen and towels for 3 guests.

The “Antiparos” bedroom has a built-in twin bed (2.10mX1.70m), a stone-made double cupboard, also fully equipped for two guests, and a window facing the glorious sunset.

Both bedrooms offer guests beautiful sea views even when they are resting in bed. Between the two rooms there is a large, traditionally built bathroom, a built-in shower and furniture, a washing machine and all necessary appliances.

Included:
* A 1.600cc SUV
* Weekly cleaning service
* Three guided walks on Irakleia's beautiful paths
* A fishing trip by boat/week
* A boat trip around the island

Location description from owner

The South Aegean region

island's surface area is 18.078 square kilometers and it's located south of Naxos, about 18 nautical miles from Naxos Town (1 hour and 15 minutes by ferry) and 2.5 nautical miles from Naxos's southern capes, Gaitani and Katomeri. Irakleia has a population of 150 who inhabit two settlements: Panayia or Hora (the main village) and Ayios Georgios, the port.
Irakleia is a good destination for travelers wanting to get away from all. There's little nightlife on the island, but it's an ideal setting for leisurely strolls or underwater exploration. The port has water supply facilities for boats. The island also has a heliport. There is neither bank nor gas station, however.
Islanders make a living from livestock keeping and farming. The island is famous for its cheeses, meats (goat, lamb, and pork), its fava and its fine thyme honey. In summer, locals also work in tourism-related services.
