Holiday Rental House
This traditional stone house is over 125 years old and sits atop an outcrop of rock above the small village of Koukourava near famous Portaria and scenic Makrinitsa villages. At 400m above sea level, there are commanding views of the panorama of the sea, the mountains and Volos below. Both bedrooms on the main house lead on to a balcony overlooking this view and the large sun terrace which is a focal point for relaxing, eating and socialising and watching the scenery change. The terrace is perfect for alfresco breakfasts, lunches and dinners, barbecues and drinks or cooling off in the pool. Shade is also available on the terrace in the form of two established mulberry trees and a vine abre above the large slate table.

At 400m above sea level, there are commanding views of the panorama of the sea, the mountains and Volos below. Both bedrooms on the main house lead on to a balcony overlooking this view and the large sun terrace which is a focal point for relaxing, eating and socialising and watching the scenery change. The terrace is perfect for alfresco breakfasts, lunches and dinners, barbecues and drinks or cooling off in the pool. Shade is also available on the terrace in the form of two established mulberry trees and a vine abre above the large slate table. There are two stone built guest rooms that are separate from the main house, one with vaulted beam roof, one with a jacuzzi bath. The house has been furnished in a traditional style, and due to its stone floors and metre thick walls remains delightfully cool in the summer. This lovely stone house is comprised of two buildings and can accomodate up to 6 guests. The main house has two bedrooms on the upper floor with two bathrooms, one of which is ensuite to the master bedroom. There is a lovely balcony adjacent to the bedrooms, ideal for reading a book and enjoying the summer sunset and the overall ambience of the house’s location. On the ground flour there is an open plan rustic kitchen that you can prepare all your meals. The indoors dining table will seat comfortably 6 guests and there is a build in sofa for relaxing during the hot days. The side house is also made of stone and is totally independent form the main house. It has two beds and a private bathroom too. Both houses are facing towards the large slate paved courtyard with its 3 large trees offering abundant shadow to the dining tables below. The pool in this house is a central feature designed in such a way that blends harmonically with the rest of the built structures. There is also a small tree house on the courtyard ideal for young and adults alike! The views towards the sea, the adjacent canyon and Volos below will be remembered for years to come! Villa Koukourava is ideal for those seeking quite time for contemplating with their loved ones. More
