Home with guesthouse
A quietly situated traditional residence with a guest house in Petrouni, a small town in the greenest part of the island of Kythira, near the lively town of Potamos (6 km). The house is built on one of the high hills and therefore has a fantastic view over almost the entire island. On both sides of the house there are beautifully maintained gardens at various levels. On the south side there are grapes, different fruit and citrus trees. On the north slope a vegetable garden and olive trees. The house itself is surrounded by flowers and herbs where there are several terraces, both in the sun and shade.
The property is accessible via a good road and offers a great starting point for hikers and nature lovers.
