Escape to the Patrick & Joan Leigh Fermor House, a luxurious villa in Peloponnese. With expansive lush gardens, a private pool, and private beach access, it’s the ultimate Greek getaway steeped in history and elegance.

Historic charm at this luxury estate, with lush gardens, pool & private beach.

Set in the verdant landscapes of the Peloponnese, the Patrick & Joan Leigh Fermor House stands as a beacon of luxury and elegance. Set within a Mediterranean garden adorned with cypress trees, olive groves, and wildflowers, this stone-built property offers a serene retreat for up to ten guests. Renowned as one of the region’s most exquisite estates, it promises a harmonious blend of tradition and modernity, ensuring a stay characterized by privacy, and unparalleled beauty.

Outdoor,  guests can immerse themselves in a private paradise. The lush garden, reminiscent of a serene parkland, invites strolls amidst verdant foliage, while numerous lounge areas provide idyllic spots to soak in the mesmerizing sea views. At the heart of this oasis lies a pristine private pool, fringed by inviting loungers, offering a refreshing oasis for relaxation. For those seeking an aquatic adventure, a scenic pathway leads to the villa’s private beach, where azure waters and sandy shores await.

Indoors, the property exudes an air of timeless elegance, seamlessly blending original architectural features with contemporary furnishings and vibrant accents. Divided into three buildings—the main villa, the traditional house, and the guest house—the interiors boast spacious open-plan layouts adorned with vibrant hues and whitewashed walls, creating an atmosphere of warmth and serenity. Each of the five deluxe bedrooms epitomizes comfort and luxury, featuring en-suite bathrooms and private lounge areas where guests can unwind in utmost tranquillity.

Steeped in history, the Patrick & Joan Leigh Fermor House holds a special significance as the former residence of Sir Patrick Leigh Fermor, a revered scholar and passionate admirer of Greece. Designed as a sanctuary where he and his wife, Joan, could immerse themselves in the beauty of the Peloponnese, the villa now offers guests the rare opportunity to experience authentic Greek hospitality in a setting of unparalleled refinement and charm.
