Experience the charm of historic Vamos village in this beautifully restored 400-year-old wine press house. With its prime location, traditional layout, and picturesque courtyard garden.
This charming 400-year-old house located in the picturesque Vamos neighborhood was originally used as a wine press and still boasts a variety of dark grapes growing on the vine. With its historic character and prime location near all amenities, this Cottage would serve as a perfect lock-up-and-leave vacation home or a popular rental property. It’s also an ideal choice for those who wish to permanently reside in the heart of this lively village.
Upon entering the house, you’ll find yourself in the open-plan living area, with the kitchen located to the left and the first sleeping area situated in the old wine press to the far right. The lounge and dining area are located to the right, while a second sleeping area and a small hallway with a newly fitted bathroom can be found on the mezzanine floor, with a door leading to a covered balcony that overlooks the garden below.
Outside, there’s a private gravelled parking area across the road with space for 2 small cars, while the courtyard-style garden wraps around the house in an ‘L’ shape and incorporates the original stone of the hillside. The original well with a safety glass panel is located to the left of the gate, and seating areas, pots, and beds of flowers and shrubs line the side of the house. A storage shed is located at the end of the garden, while under the upper balcony is a utility room with a washing machine, among other things. At the very end of the garden is a wooden covered seating platform with tables and chairs overlooking the village, offering yet another seating and dining option, especially magical on hot summer nights when the fairy lights are on!
Although the house has a traditional layout with areas that can be adapted for different uses to suit the occupants, the current owners have given much love and care to the renovation and decoration of this sweet little home.
The location is within walking distance to the shops, cafes, tavernas, and main bus station, making it convenient for those who do not own a car. The neighborhood mostly consists of locals who have lived here for generations, along with some resident northern Europeans, providing an accessible and friendly community. You might recognize the original narrow cobblestone streets with vibrant colored doors and pots of geraniums that are often featured on postcards showcasing the prettiest areas in the region.
The main furniture is included in the price, but personal items are not. The garden furniture is also included.
