Situated in a privileged panoramic position on the island of Alonissos (Sporades Islands), above the charming fishing village of Steni Vala, Villa Jura has unrivaled sea views, a splendid panoramic swimming pool and easy pedestrian access to a lovely beach and the seafront.
The villa is distributed over two levels. All the bedrooms are designed to maximize their sea view position and to allow easy access to outside areas. The main entrance on the upper floor leads to the bright open living area and the eat-in kitchen. The roof garden is perfectly enjoyable with a sun deck and a breathtaking view. The terraces measure a total of approximately 500 m2.
The living area is furnished with contemporary pieces gathered around an elegant fireplace, while the focal point of the contemporary eat-in kitchen is an antique Indian teak cabinet that doubles as an island. Large glass windows in each of these areas open onto the surrounding terrace offering stunning views.
The remaining rooms are located on the lower floor which is accessed externally via a stone staircase. There are two bedrooms with independent access, each with ensuite bathrooms. Both overlook the terraces and gardens with sea views. Situated on the hill above the small port village of Steni Vala, the villa has been designed to blend into the natural context of olive trees, Aleppo pines and Mediterranean flora. The exteriors include a barbecue and relaxation area on the terraces, a large garden with a splendid panoramic swimming pool and the surrounding land. The villa is sold fully furnished and ready to move into. Numerous parking spaces are available. Excellent privacy.
Despite its diminutive size, 14km long and 4km wide, Alonissos has an embarrassment of riches when it comes to beaches. Arguably the best ones are to be found along the east coast and on the southern tip. One such, just a 10-minute drive north, is Agios Dimitrios, whose splendid white sands and intense blue waters are irresistible. The north of the island also boasts some idyllic coves and beaches but most of these are only accessible by boat: an excellent reason to rent one for your stay. Alonissos, its surrounding waters and minor islands, including Peristera, Kyra Panagia, Gioura, Psathoura, Piperi and Skantzoura, form the Alonissos Marine Park, the largest of its kind in Europe. Established in 1992, its 2,250km2 is home to a fascinating variety of flora, fauna, marine life (including Meditteranean monk seals) and unspoilt natural beauty.
