Villa “Pirgos” and villa “Avra” are two semi-detached villas in a 1,500 m² area. Each villa has its own private 32 m² swimming pool, private gardens and BBQ.
Although both villas are in the same area, we took good care of your privacy! The only part that you have to share with the other house is the parking area.
