Relax and Enjoy
Another plus is topping up your tan from the comfort of your own lounger. Or taking a turn on the hammock. And cooling down with an occasional dip in the pool, followed by the fanning of Pissouri’s fabulous sea breeze – natural air-conditioning!
We also love the entertainment provided by sparrows, swifts, butterflies, lizards, and the occasional cat. It’s amazing how much local wildlife enjoys visiting and exploring the garden. Many late afternoon hours have been spent admiring swifts skimming the pool. As for that tiny frog… he’s actually miniscule – in the photo he’s sitting on the pool hand rail – but his chirruping makes part of a pretty loud night chorus.
Our Lovely Garden
There’s plenty of interest all season long – from sub-tropical palms to flowering hedges and shrubs, and pretty patio pots. A softly-fragranced Stephanotis weaves its way up the dining area pergola, and a grape vine provides driveway shade. Given the history of the land, we just had to have a grape vine! And in the front garden, there are lemon and olive trees. It’s fabulous to be able to pick lemons fresh from the tree. We don’t recommend you try the olives though – they need to be cured in brine before they’re nice to eat.
To the side of the villa there’s an Astroturf area that has quite a bit of daily shade making it ideal for outdoor family games. You can choose from Jenga, boules, skittles and Yahzee, or bring out one of the indoor board games.
