Fig Cottage sleeps 2-4 people and comprises an open plan kitchen/living area with two stone day beds, one double bedroom and one bathroom with a walk-in shower. The cottage also has its own private 8m x 4m swimming pool and almost 1 stremma of land. There is a clear uninterrupted view of the sea. The property also offers the opportunity to extend, subject to planning permission.
The villa next door, Lime House, can also be bought together with Fig Cottage. The properties are arranged to be private from each other with an old stone wall separating them, however there is also a gate allowing easy access to each cottage if needed. The total plot size totals 2.3 stremma and there are natural, terraced gardens full of olive, fruit and nut trees.
The property rents extremely well each season through three high end boutique agents and through its own website. There is a property maintenance team (for housekeeping and gardening) and an English, fluent Greek speaking property manager on the ground throughout the season.
Orchard Cottages are the oldest properties in Markandonata – the ruins originally date back to the 16th Century from which the current owner, an interior designer, completely restored them.
