Villa Acorn, in the island of Kea, is 8 km from the port of Korissia and 2 km from the capital Ioulis. It is situated at the west side of the island, on the road connecting Ioulis with the South of the island (near the beautiful beaches of Poisses and Koundouros).
The villa stands in a terrain of about 5000 m2 with oak trees. It offers a magnificent 180 degrees south-west-north view, which features Cape Sounion
The villa is composed of the main house and a guest house. The main house has a total surface of 150 m2 and can sleep 4 adults and 1 child.
The main house has two bedrooms at two split levels. The master bedroom at the upper level, with stunning views of the Aegean Sea, has a double bed and an “en suite” shower-room and WC. It can also accommodate a baby cot. The second bedroom at the lower level, with direct access to the oak field and its own private terrace, has two single beds which can become a double bed with a separate shower-room and WC. A storage room is also at this level.
The living/dining area is a large single space at the main ground floor with windows offering a panoramic view and giving, through glass doors, to spacious verandas. It is decorated with modern furniture and equipped with TV, DVD, high speed Wi-Fi internet and a Bose sound system. There is a fully equipped kitchen. At one end of this space is an elevated small office area comprising a desk, drawers and a reading/relaxing sofa that could also be used as a bed.
The adjacent 30m2 stone guesthouse, with separate access, can accommodate 3 persons. It is composed of a family room with two single beds which can be converted to a double bed, a single sofa-bed, a shower + WC and a kitchenette with cooking equipment, coffee machine and refrigerator.
The placement of the sleeping quarters secures a high degree of privacy but with direct access to the living quarters and to outdoor activities.
There is a large outside terrace with pergolas. It features a 3,5x11 meters infinity swimming pool, sun-beds and a built=in sofa for relaxation, an open air barbecue, armchairs and furniture for outside dining for 10 persons.
Particular attention has been given to achieve high sustainability standards. The external walls were cladded with high spec insulation lining achieving year-round comfortable conditions. All bedroom quarters were built with stone while windows were carefully placed diagonally to allow for cool summer breeze to circulate uniformly through the rooms. There is constant supply of hot water provided primarily by solar panels.
For out-of-season cold weather the house is heated efficiently by a compact high energy fireplace placed at the centre of the living area which becomes the focus of activities. Additional heat is provided by electric convectors throughout the house.
All lighting fixtures operate with LED lightbulbs.
The design and construction relied heavily on traditional techniques and materials. Stone has been used extensively in walls and terrace formation for landscaping.
Water needs are assisted by a cistern of 60 m3 capacity in which rain water is collected.
There is ample parking space at the side of the terrain.
Villa Acorn can be rented independently or, for larger groups, with one or both of its adjacent
