With a rich history, long seafaring heritage and cosmopolitan character, Spetses is one of the most picturesque Greek islands. It retains its charming feeling with its well-preserved Captains’ Mansions and by offering a unique feature that of being a car-free destination.
Laskarina, is a traditional home with authentic atmosphere and beautiful aesthetics. It’s set on a forested cape at the crest of the island, providing visitors the feeling that they are at land’s end. Total autonomy is a gift in 6 acres of grounds, so spacious that they feel endless, in a microcosm that seems separate from the island of Spetses.
Here, the olive trees glisten in the sunlight, among pines, palms, cypresses, native aromatics and eye-catching rock formations. Every spot is a new 360° panorama as the sea is the protagonist from dawn till dusk. The views of Spetses, the Agia Marina bay, the islets of Spetsopoula, Trikeri and Agios Ioannis, even Hydra island in the background, unfold from around this secluded cape.
A short stroll down the property’s footpath leads to a private beach, and guests can embark from here on a voyage to explore the coastline of the island. In addition, the traditional Agia Marina Chapel, which is attached to the property is ideal for a private mass.
The main house of The Pine Estate was originally built as a humble hunting lodge, capturing the elegant simplicity of Spetses architecture in full. Its understated luxury is a whisper of noble simplicity, with rooms that are in a continuous conversation with the surrounding gardens.
Four of its bedrooms open to a spacious infinity pool and emerald sea views. Its master bedroom is removed from the other accommodations to offer an additional level of privacy, and leads to a verdant garden, where one can lounge in cool shade and listen to the sound of the cicadas.
