The villa faces south. It's set in the middle of a large, mature, well cared for garden, which creates a lovely sense of privacy. The ambiance is calm & artistic with unique features inside & out. There are charming places to sit & relax, both in the villa & in the garden. Laze in the pool, or swim in the sea from the sea platform, 3 minutes stroll away. Rustle up a BBQ, doze in the hammock, there's every comfort & it's family friendly.
The villa overlooks the Greek island of Castellorizo, known in Turkey as Meis. It's special because it's surrounded by the garden, it's beautiful & tranquil. The pool terrace is spacious. The unique mature garden has secluded hideaways, a fountain, a tea-house, & a huge variety of plants, trees, flowers & herbs for the kitchen. The villa has a lot of charm. It is very well equipped as well as being delightfully decorative.
The villa, pool & garden are exclusively yours.

Originally from London, for some years, I've been based in Kas where I built my villa & then the garden. I feel lucky living in the sun & going to London. Going somewhere new is always exciting, as is planning the next "adventure". I hope my guests enjoy being here & feel well catered for, so they relax & have a fabulous holiday.
