Citrus Grove Villa is located in the historic island of Chios. It stands inside a 15-acre orange and tangerine grove owned by the owner’s ancestors for over two hundred years. The structure was built by the Genovese during the 15thCentury at which time Genoa occupied the island. The property itself lies at the edge of the Campos Valley which covers several hundred acres of similar orange groves and is renowned for producing the worlds’ finest in aroma and taste tangerines. The entire Campos Valley is situated only a few kilometers from the City proper of Chios and is recognized as one of the most singularly unique sites of Greece.
