pounendes cottageEntering into the expansive sitting room of Villa Pounendes, the feel is open and casual. The sitting room comprises a large seating area with a cushy sofa, arm chairs and a second grouping of comfortable chairs. There is a centered fireplace with television and music center to the side. The most striking feature of the room is the very traditional terra cotta floors and cathedral, open-beamed wooden ceilings. With windows and double French doors running the length of the wall, the views down to the harbour are seen even from inside. A couple of steps down and separated by a low wall from the sitting room is the large galley-style kitchen. With every cooking utensil one can wish for – the house has obviously been a place of great gatherings and family parties. A built-in bench seat backs the sitting room and serves as additional seating to the heavy wooden dining table. The cushions are the same colours and comfy materials as the sitting room sofa. One can imagine sitting and enjoying the harbour views over long meals with friends and family. With full-sized fridge and stove, the equipment is absolutely made for holiday get-togethers.

From this main sitting room/kitchen, the bedrooms are separated into two sections. A curtained hallway from the kitchen has a roomy w/c shower room and also leads to a bedroom with double bed. The décor is artsy and the walls are trimmed with a hand painted olive leaf motif andmatching hand-painted furniture. There are full sized, wall to wall wardrobes and the double bed faces toward the French doors that lead to the front and pool terraces.

The opposite wing of the house is reached via a doorway at the other side of the sitting room. A long hallway leads to two more bedrooms and an enormous bathroom. The master bedroom is furnished with wall to wall wardrobes and a double bed. There is a television hooked up to DVD/CD player (not hooked to an aerial) as well as double French doors which lead out to the front terrace. The views from the bedroom through the patio are of the hillsides opposite the town and the busy small harbour below. The other bedroom is furnished with bunk beds and a small desk. The enormous bathroom consists of double washbasins, bidet, shower stall and a full sized bathtub.

Sitting all on one level, Villa Pounendes is surrounded by extensive terraces both front and back. The sunny back patio is furnished with a picnic styled table which makes a perfect place for breakfasts and is a great protected area for windy days. The views are of the olive covered hillsides pine clad mountains in the distance. The front terrace is also furnished with a dining table as well as some wicker chairs from which to enjoy the fabulous views down to the harbour. Many leisurely hours will certainly be spent watching the sun and moon rise above the hills opposite and checking out the ferries busily plying the waters below. Both terraces are shaded by pergolas with lush and mature greenery which help keep the temperatures cool even in the heat of the day.

The pool area is situated slightly off to the side of the villa and is one of the largest swimming pools on the island. The recent additions of a large pool bar, comfy new furniture, cushions on the lounges and new landscaping will make it hard to tear yourself away! The views from the pool terrace are again of the harbour below and reach all the way across the Stafilos valley to the island of Evia. The gated property of Villa Pounendes is surrounded by groves of olive and fruit trees.
