• In and around the Villa Poropati

    There are many things you can do when holidaying at Villa Poropati.

  • You can lounge around the south facing swimming pool
  • Relax in the kid’s part of the swimming pool with couple of power jets for massage.
  • You could sleep or read one of the books from our collection on the grass, sun lounge or outdoor sofa.
  • Surf the internet or just watch TV (50 inch screen)
  • Why not just listen to the birds singing in the morning or watch dozens of swallows in the early evening hours flying in a synchronised way over the swimming pool and barely touching the surface of the pool to get some water whilst you watch the sun go down with a gin and tonic in your hand.
  • You can have a breakfast/lunch, coffee alfresco or just read news papers in tranquillity on the north facing terrace when everyone else is having some fun around the pool area on the other side of the villa.
  • We can arrange a chef to prepare you a local authentic dish, using only the locally sourced organic ingredients.
  • You can barbeque
  • Sitting around the firepit chat and gaze at the stars
  • How about having a massage in a cool cellar or outside in the sunshine?
