Detached 2-bedroom villa for sale with private pool in the traditional village of Gavalohori. All just a few minutes' drive from the golden beaches of Almerida.

Built in 2007, this great villa is just a short stroll from the lively village centre and its shops, tavernas and cafes.


Entering the house through the main entrance at the side of the house, a kitchen/dining/living room plus a shower room occupies the entire ground floor.

The living area is light and bright and has a wood burner in the corner for the cold winter days. An arch separates the living area from the L shaped fully equipped kitchen with lots of storage units and stainless steel electrical appliances including a dishwasher.

Both areas benefit from patio doors leading to the covered terrace with its pretty arch, the pool and the pretty, low-maintenance garden areas. The mountain views are spectacular from here.

The space under the stairs has been used for storage and also houses a washroom with a small shower.
A tiled staircase leads to the upper floor where the two bedrooms and the family bathroom are located. Both bedrooms are equipped with floor to ceiling built-in wardrobes and have a private balcony overlooking the garden, the pool, the magnificent White Mountains, the village and the surrounding area. There is even a little glance of the sea from the top floor.

The smallest bedroom is currently used as office by the current owners but it does fit a double bed.

The top floor blue/white tiled bathroom is equipped with a bathtub.


The house is set on a 358m2 plot which is beautifully landscaped and walled, and easy to maintain. The garden has an irrigation system and is partly covered with pebbles for easy maintenance.

From the private parking area, 2 steps lead to a wooden gate opening to the L-shaped covered and arched terrace with outdoor furniture and a sun blind for protection. This is where you would be living most of the year, while steps lead down to the pool area.

The private pool of 24,5m2 is surrounded by a tiled pavement to install the sun loungers. Roman steps make the access into the pool easier and the pool has a depth from 1m10 to 1m70.

A shed is found at the back of the house and is used as a storage space. The mature garden has some fruit trees including 5 olive trees, a pomegranate, an orange and a lemon tree.

The house is extremely well taken care of by the current owners.
