Cottage overview - owner's description

This charming, detached cottage is located within the grounds of the Ancient Castle of Koroni.
Being suitable for a couple. The property offers a chance to stay in a very unique and atmospheric location.
The cottage comprises a double bed, wardrobe, log burner, air/con unit, fast WiFi connection, stereo system with c.d's, a good selection of books, maps and information about the area, table and chairs, all in the main, large room.

Adjacent to this room is a fully fitted kitchen with small electric cooker, blender, toaster, kettle and all utensils. A door leads to an outdoor kitchen where you will find a large fridge/freezer and double sink unit.
The outdoor kitchen is covered and a gate takes you onto the first patio with table and chairs for outdoor dining.
Also attached to the house is an outdoor shower and washing machine in its own housing.
There is another terrace at the front of the property, shaded by Jasmine and a Grape Vine. n the Summer months help yourself to beautiful, juicy grapes, just reach up and pick a bunch!
A lovely place to sit when the sun is too hot!
There is also another two terraces, one looks out to sea through the trees, a favourite place to sit and watch the night sky, which is amazing in Greece.
The other terrace is shady, sit under living sculptures, olive trees over 100 years old.
In November we harvest our olives and have wonderful, extra virgin oil, from trees that are not sprayed with chemicals. You are welcome to buy oil from us and a sample is left in the cottage for guests.
We leave a welcome pack for you to include, coffee, tea, oil, milk and water. If you require further provisions then please let me know in advance.
There is plenty of room for parking in the garden.
Within the Castle grounds there is a monastery where a few Nuns now live, it is open to the public and the Nuns are very happy to show you around.
A short walk down some steps from the Castle and along a shady avenue brings you to the glorious Zaga Beach, home to nesting Loggerhead Turtles in the Summer months. The beach is protected and there are no high rise hotels, in fact Koroni is a place where you can experience low key tourism.
There are also two other sandy beaches nearby.
In the town of Koroni there are all amenities, Bakers, Fresh Fish shop, Supermarket, Banks with ATM machines. It is also the place for eating out, there are many Tavernas (restaurants) and cafe bars along the waterfront, it is a wonderful place to sit and watch the fishing boats and the yachts which regularly anchor in the calm, blue waters of Koroni.
The cottage truly affords a wonderful position, a special place that leaves a lasting impression of peace and tranquility........

Couple from Brighton, United Kingdom Jun 2018

Lovely single storey accommodation, simply but tastefully decorated with cooling! All the cooking equipment you could need. Large beautifully planted garden with lots of sitting out areas in sun and shade, also a small barbecue. But ‘sea views’ can only be glimpsed through the olive trees.
British owners, locally based, most welcoming and helped with airport transfer. Koroni town is very pretty with lots of good bars and tavernas, still maintains an authentic Greek village atmosphere.
Two areas for swimming within walking distance. Beautiful Zaga beach is well worth the extra walk up through the peaceful monastery grounds.
We were without a car, which was perfect for a week. When we return we will hire a car to explore the area which is rich with historic sites.
We loved our visit.
