Villa Castriota is a charming villa in the coastal town of Castro Marina, nestled in a beautifully manicured terraced garden overlooking the bay of the celebrated “Zinzulusa” grotto and its deep blue waters. The Villa lies inside a private property which includes other houses, all sharing a common pathway and stairs which lead to a rocky cove with access to the turquoise water.
The villa is set in its own private garden and is composed of two distinct parts: the main building, facing the sea, and an annex at the back edge of the terraced garden.
Main building: the ground floor includes a small living-dining room, a fully equipped kitchen (dishwasher included), a laundry room with a washing machine and a bathroom/shower; the first floor, reachable via an internal staircase, includes the sleeping area with a master bedroom, a twin bedroom with a sea view terrace and a bathroom/shower. The ground floor opens onto a large section of a sea view garden, provided with a wooden pergola with garden furniture, masonry cushioned couches and a large dining table with seating for 10/12 people. An outdoor staircase leads to a stunning sea view terrace-solarium furnished with masonry couches and Moroccan lanterns. At the back of the main building, the remaining section of the garden spreads into terraces, enclosed by drystone walls, with another wooden pergola, a barbecue, areas with garden furniture, and the annex.
Annex: a large master bedroom with a large bathroom/shower, a small room with access from the outside, used as a kitchenette with a cooktop, a sink, a small refrigerator, and lastly an outdoor area with a table and chairs.
DistancesSea: 100 m from the property, through a pathway shared by other houses, leading to a cosy, deep blue water cove. (Notes: for those who are not accustomed to walk over the rocky coastline we recommend the use of rubber shoes for rocks).
