The Spheres, 5 self-contained studios - Selene (double bed), Helios, Astra, Gaia, and Okeanos - nestle into the hillside above the sea, 5 kilometres outside Galatas, with gorgeous views toward Poros, and Sounion in the East. They are surrounded by olive trees and natural countryside. The swimming bay is an 8 minute walk down the hill. While the estate provides a peaceful haven for relaxation, the region is rich in ancient history, legend, and natural beauty, with much to see and explore.
Each of the studios is well-appointed and spacious with its own kitchenette. The ensuite shower rooms have been designed in simple Cycladic style in keeping with the soft colour tones of each bedroom. As well as a table and chairs outside each private terrace, there are further seating areas under the olive trees for eating and relaxing.
The estate is 1 acre in size, and guests have access to the communal areas which include the lounge and covered pergola leading outside to the hillside gardens above the Spheres with wide far reaching views from Methana to the Eastern horizon, and the constant changing drama of the morning sunrise.
Interaction with guests
I live very close by and am always available if you have any questions, or problems, or need information about where to eat, places to visit, good swimming bays, shops, local activities etc.
Other things to note
Being in the countryside it may helpful to bring a torch for those nights when there is no moon. Also the dirt track up from the main road and the car parking area is rough under foot and steep in part, so suitable shoes are advisable.
- - Due to the peaceful wild hillside location it is not safe or suitable for children under 18 except by special arrangement.
