Approaching Aloni for the first time, it seems hidden away above the traditional stone walls that enclose the pretty surrounding garden. A splendid semi-circular pool reflects the history of the original site as a thresher’s circle (as does the Greek name) and the wonderful views vie with an intimate traditional interior for a truly lasting first impression. Comfortable outside terrace furniture ensure that many hours are spent admiring the views of Skala, the countryside and the vivid blue of the Ionian Sea. To one side, a shaded terrace houses the barbecue for al fresco meals and evenings spent listening to the cicadas and goats’ bells in the distance.
In the open plan living/dining and kitchen area sturdy wooden beams and warming tones of the exposed stone walls immediately establish a gently relaxing atmosphere (direct views onto the pool mean that aquatic activity can even be monitored from the comfort of the sofa!).
Thoughtful, contemporary décor combined with the traditional setting create a welcoming airy finish, the various windows framing lovely panoramas out to the horzon and which perfectly complement the infinity pool.
Built on two levels, the bedrooms are on the upper floor; a pretty double bedroom with a fabulous patio covered with vines and a twin bedroom enjoying equally stunning patio sea views. The open plan living, dining, and kitchen are on the ground floor, delightfully decorated, with a glass table, chairs and comfy sofa. All open out onto the terrace where sunloungers are inviting in the sunshine, with umbrellas provide shade in the heat of the day.
