For the less physically able
For our older guests, or those with mobility problems, we have provided accommodation all on a single level and have a number of aids available for use, such as raised toilet seat, shower stool and grab handles.
We have designed and built the villa with ease of access in mind. This means that guests with mobility problems will not have to battle with flights of steps from the car park or with bedrooms on different floors as all the accommodation is on a single level with easy access from the car park and every room has wide doors or double doors for access.
Cars can be driven right up to the edge of the patio which surrounds the property, allowing for direct access without the need for ramps. Smooth stone flags, and tiled terraces, completely surround the villa, providing wheelchair access to all rooms and all around the property.
There is one very small step from car park to main patio area, and steps of course to the roof terrace. Other than this, all rooms can be reached via flat level access with only small wooden thresholds on some of the external doors. The easy access shower in the ensuite bathroom, at a width of 1.5m, enables a less able person to be assisted to wash, and there is deliberately no glass side panel to this shower for this purpose, although there is a tiled lip separating the shower from the rest of the en-suite area.
In addition, we have added a number of aids to make life easier:
Wide-access shower in both internal shower rooms
UK-specification raised toilet seat
Etac adjustable shower seat with handles
UK-manufactured grab-handles in external shower room
Gentle pool steps with support handrail
We can also arrange for a UK-trained English Occupational Therapist (OT) to perform an individual assessment of the property to your particular needs in advance.
A number of services can also be provided at the property to make your stay easier:
Food delivery service (both hot and cold) from local restaurants and specialist catering suppliers
Facilities of a UK-trained sports masseur
We can also offer you a complimentary grocery pack of essential food items to be at the house to greet you on arrival. The pack starts you off with fresh bread, milk, butter, a cold beer, wine, water, butter, tea, coffee, sugar and biscuits. In short, everything you need for your first snack on arrival without going to the shops.
The property is set on the hillside above the village of Gavalohori and from the quiet access road the large iron gate rolls back to reveal a short driveway into the car parking area with ample parking for several cars. Once you are home, you may never want to leave...
