AMETHYST is a village house ideal for a two adults, or a couple with one or two young children.
We have renovated and decorated it in a style combining the simplicity of a village house with the comforts of a fine hotel. The metre thick stone walls, the pine floors, the exposed roof timbers, the stone fireplace, are all typical of the local architecture. From the windows, and from the terrace the views sweep across the fields down to the beach and the sea.
Inside you will find every home comfort. On the ground floor is a fully equipped kitchen and dining/living room of thirty square metres. It is decorated with a large convivial table surrounded by ancient taverna chairs and a large sofa covered with soft multicoloured cushions facing the fireplace and shelves of books to browse through. The door opens on a small terrace ideal for breakfast in the shade, pre-dinner drinks, or late night star gazing. Upstairs is a spacious bedroom with a soft king-sized double bed with down duvet bedding; a lounge area with flat screen TV with satellite connections and a DVD player; lots of cupboard space and a vanity desk and mirror. The bathroom is small but well equipped with a large tiled shower, a hair dryer, bathrobes, and a washing machine. There is no shortage of water in Limnos, and abundant hot water is provided by the solar panels hidden behind the house.
In short all the advantages of a cosy hotel hidden in the middle of a quiet Greek island village. The house was completely renovated in 2007 with new windows and shutters, and air conditioning throughout. It is best suited for two people. But a foldaway sofa bed can accommodate two more people. Our housekeeper ensures cleaning and laundry changes twice per week.
Thanos is a working village. Your neighbours will be Odysseus, a local builder and his wife Meni, and on the other side Mme Kula, an elegant retired seamstress. They like all the villagers will welcome you with simple, sincere, warm hospitality.
