Leigh Fermor Villa
Welcome to the Award Winning Patrick and Joan Leigh Fermor House, situated in Kardamyli, in Southeast Peloponnese. In 1996 Sir Patrick and Joan Leigh Fermor bequeathed their home to the Benaki Museum with the express wish that the house would host intellectuals and scholars who wanted to work or study in an inspiring setting.
The Patrick & Joan Leigh Fermor House is considered one of the most beautiful properties in Greece. Within a Mediterranean garden of cypress trees, olive trees, fragrant shrubs, white oleanders and wild flowers rolling down to the sea, stand three stone buildings: the Main House with three suites, the writer’s studio right next to it, which is formed into the Traditional House, as well as the Guest House, adjacent to the Main House.
This historical house can be rented as a whole villa, the Main House, Traditional House and Guest House, to accommodate parties of up to ten people. The property also features a small swimming pool and a private beach and parking area that all guests have access to.
The Leigh Fermors granted the museum the right to rent the property for a period of three months per year.
