in Loutraki, Peloponnese, Greece
A sleek and stylish brand new villa in Skaloma, Loutraki, the Aura sits about 1 ½ hour away from Athens, right at the water’s edge surrounded by verdant scenery and landscaped gardens. With an enviable position a few minutes drive away from Greece’s most famous Spa Town and Casino, in front of a secluded beach, that’s perfect for practising water sports like Sup or Canoe all day long, this luxurious bolthole can host up to 25 guests in absolute comfort and style.
There are even facilities for people with disabilities in these beautifully designed and thoughtfully appointed premises. Indeed the sea-gazing Villa Aura in Skaloma, Loutraki, comes with plenty of tricks up its sleeves: Like soul-stirring sea or garden vistas from all of its 10 ensuite bedrooms, and even suites with indoor fireplaces. There are also five sea view jacuzzis, for when you don’t want to get sand in your hair or cocktail; and an extensive outdoor BBQ area with a Napoleon grill that tempts the culinarian in your company. The expansive, well-tended lawns are the just perfect spot for entertaining, with ample space for setting up tables and chairs under the starry sky. The villa after all sports a huge 200 sqm kitchen with cutting-edge facilities and equipment, that can keep up with the demands of large-scale catering. This state-of-the-art kitchen also features a big dining table for 25 guests and a separate breakfast area – and may double as an informal living room. With refreshingly modern, minimal furnishings, floor-to-ceiling openings inviting the outside in, and well-calculated, atmospheric lighting throughout, Villa Aura is a perfect blend of place and space – tailor-made for unforgettable, stress-free holidays with friends and family. It is also a prime location for hosting all sorts of parties and events, against an eye-catching backdrop of gently rolling waves.
Dreams made of sand and sea
Stay within these cocooned premises to experience the beach life – take your pick between an impressive collection of water toys, all included in the rental price – but also ultimate pampering – anything, from candlelit, chef dinners to healing massages or speed boat excursions, is yours for the asking. Or venture beyond this gilded paradise to test your luck at the casino, get immersed in ancient mineral springs or visit archaeological sights and Byzantine landmarks that will leave you with some fascinating tales to tell.
Villa Aura’s rooms can be rented out separately in the offseason. Likewise, in those less busy months, it may double as a boutique hotel, thereby making for a superb business opportunity.
Mineral springs were known for their healing benefits since ancient times. Under the Romans, Emperor Neuron systematically took baths to improve his health.
