The island’s current name is derived from the Venetians who, due to the island’s many aromatic plants, called it Isola di Spezzie. Each house at Spezzie was named after one of these plants to evoke the natural scents of the island.
The design and construction of this project combine the developer’s understanding of the requirements of a Spetsiot summer house, the respect of local architectural style, compliance to building regulations as well as the selection of modern yet simple engineering solutions.
The Spezzie homes boast spacious bedrooms (most with en suite bathrooms), functional indoor spaces, large kitchens with easy access to the indoor and outdoor sitting and dining areas, bright and functional semi-basements and practical storage and utility spaces.
Traditional materials such as wooden floors, gabled roofs, wooden Spetsiot ceilings, windows and shutters have been combined with the latest engineering standards. Modern comforts including Air Conditioning, Telephone & TV network throughout, automatic watering system, as well as cabling for alarm systems have been installed.
Spetses is an enchanting island of diverse natural beauty, a rich historic past and cosmopolitan Greek island lifestyle. Despite its modest size, the hospitable locals and its proximity to Athens have always made it a favorite holiday spot.
Lush pine–forest landscapes and hidden coves with sparkling clear waters, quality restaurants and tavernas offering local flavours, car-free roads and the picturesque sea-front promenade all combine to create Spetses’ unique "Greek island" identity. Throughout the year, whether during the busy summer months or the mild winter and blossoming and scented spring time, Spetses attracts high quality visitors.
Arriving by sea, the first images are of the proud island homes with their red-tiled roofs, set against a back-drop of pine forests. Wise building regulations impose strict architectural norms throughout the island. This has resulted in maintaining the unique and characteristic Spetsiot architecture which owes much to the finesse of the island’s onetime Venetian overlords and the great tradition of local merchant captains who brought wealth and pride to the island. Above "Dapia", rises the neighborhood of Kastelli, home to the first major settlement of the island and the Spezzie villas.
