This traditional stone house has been beautifully renovated.  Not only does it have stunning sea views but is only a short drive to the lovely beach at Agios Spiridon and the facilities at Acharavi. 

The property is at the end of a little road that rises up behind the village of Loutses and ends in a row of old terraced houses. Originally two cottages, it has been lovingly restored by its present owners, retaining as many original features as possible. 

Set on two floors, there is a large kitchen on the ground floor, with a family bathroom at one end. Immediately  above the kitchen and accessed by a wooden staircase is the master bedroom, with the original cypress wood floor and a large built in linen cupboard. 

A few steps up lead off the kitchen into the oldest part of the house which was originally a monastery. Here is a large double bedroom facing the view, with an exposed stone wall and the original wood burning oven.  Behind the bedroom is a large living/dining room, originally the heart of the 1675 monastery with original features, such as a rare pink marble flagstone floor, a recess for the host, a rustic inset bookcase, and a pink marble sink from the old kitchen. The room is cool in summer and cozy and warm in the winter, thanks to the wood burning stove. 

A staircase leads up to the upper sitting room, with high vaulted ceiling and a beautiful old cypress wood floor. Plenty of light floods in through the windows which give wonderful views to Albania and the sea, and a door leads to a large upper veranda and another to a little back patio, which is a perfect place for having morning coffee. At the rear of the living room is another bedroom, and downstairs across the patio is a separate studio, giving extra guest accommodation. The studio also has a useful storeroom below.

Outside the kitchen is a terrace with a pretty vine covered pergola, the perfect shady spot to relax and take in the view. Below this, the land slopes gently down to an olive grove.  Although the location is peaceful, it is only a few minutes drive down to the beach at St. Spiridon, and shops and tavernas in nearby villages.
