The lovely Mimosa is one of the Kardaki Estate’s smaller villas with gorgeous views over the trees to the sea and the striking Albanian coastline beyond. Bespoke pieces and carefully chosen furniture contribute to its charm and the house works equally well for families or for friends looking to base themselves in this sociable part of the island. Sleeping up to 6 adults, Mimosa has bright open plan living with en suite bedrooms either side and a third self-contained bedroom suite below the main house with king-size bed and further day bed for a child. Interiors are delightfully comfortable, complemented by cool, gentle fabrics and finished with touches of inspiration from India. Wide terraces provide the perfect places for meals, reading and view-watching with the curved infinity pool completing the final piece of the Mimosa puzzle.
For larger groups you can hire Mimosa in conjunction with Villa Jacaranda the adjacent four bedroom villa, which sleeps up to 8. guests. The villas are connected via an arched wooden door in the garden.
