An idyllic property for someone looking for solitude, privacy and an escape from everyday hectic life.

On a plot of 3553 m2 there is a stone house of about 50 m2. The stone house is of older construction, and is in its original form, which requires investment, while the roof was recently made.

This small stone house has an unobstructed view of the sea, which is less than 100 meters away. There is also a small pebble beach to which only a few people have access.

It is not possible to reach the property by car, and the parking lot is about 50 meters away.

There is no electricity or water in the bay, because it is a location that is more secluded and far from larger places, and is intended exclusively for owners who want to enjoy peace and quiet, as far away from everyday crowds. It is located on agricultural land, and there is no possibility of additional construction, expansion, but only renovation within the existing dimensions.
