A lovely villa set in the village of Matsukata with exquisite views, this house belongs to Tassos' wife, Rowena. Along with the neighbouring Alexanna Apartments, it enjoys far reaching views towards the island of Ithaka across the channel and an exquisite view down to the tree lined Doliha Bay and the little offshore islet of Daskalio. Legend has it that Penelope used to bathe in the bay, and suitors gathered on the island in order to ambush Odysseus on his return.
The interior is beautifully furnished and with four bedrooms it easily accommodates a large family or group of friends. Three of the bedrooms are on the first floor, including the master bedroom with en suite shower room. There is an additional bathroom upstairs. All of the bedrooms have balconies. There is a fourth bedroom downstairs with en suite shower opening onto the same large terrace as the spacious living area. A superbly fitted kitchen and large terrace completes this excellent accommodation.
The villa is surrounded by a beautifully tended garden of geraniums and herbs which scent the air. Very few private swimming pools have a setting as beautiful as this. On one side is an ancient gnarled olive tree, hollowed over the centuries, where Rowena and Tassos' son Alexis used to hide with his friends. A lemon tree next to the house is equally impressive. Possibly the biggest in the area, it hangs heavy with fruit every summer. It is wonderful to relax on the villa's sunny patio after a swim, enjoy the panoramic views or contemplate a stroll down to the nearby beach, Foki Bay or to Fiskardo.
Matsukata is a quiet backwater surrounded by old walls, olive groves and the ruins of ancient houses. Old pathways linking all the scattered settlements of the area provide opportunities for wonderful evening strolls. Fiskardo itself is only five minute drive down the hill, passing the enticing waters of Foki Bay en route! In the other direction, the village of Manganos with taverna, greengrocer and mini-market is again only two minutes drive on the main road to historic Assos, and the world famous Myrtos Beach.
