Dolphin Capital, leading owner and developer of world- class integrated resorts, introduces its latest real estate offering, Kilada Country Club, Golf & Residences
May 2021: With dramatic views of the Aegean Sea from its rolling hills, Dolphin Capital’s Kilada Country Club, Golf & Residences, named after the nearby village of Kilada, is a new community in the Peloponnese comprising a Country Club, a Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course, a beach club and an exclusive residential offering. Once only popular among the holidaying European elite, the magnetic mix of luxurious living, sumptuous hospitality and magnificent beauty – in the form of Dolphin Capital’s Amanzoe in Porto Heli, has led to the rebirth of this arresting region, attracting discerning travellers year on year.
Despite this, and its relative proximity to Athens, the area of Kilada has remained a secret amongst those who know it exists, and Dolphin Capital will endeavour to retain this essence of privacy, discretion and tranquillity in the delivery of Kilada Country Club, Golf & Residences when it opens in early 2023.
An unspoilt destination of exceptional natural beauty, Kilada will soon be home to a sanctuary of seclusion for residents and guests to visit and live year-round. With an alluring Mediterranean climate, the development will comprise a Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course, a contemporary and vibrant Country Club, 90 signature villas lots and a private Beach Club. Home to the only 18-hole Par 72 championship golf course of its kind in the eastern Mediterranean, Kilada Country Club, Golf & Residences is the latest resort to join the exceptional list of branded properties granted the PGA National title. Holding geographical exclusivity, Kilada will be recognised globally as PGA National Greece, becoming only the tenth PGA National designated resort in the world. Kilada Country Club, Golf & Residences will feel like a community; where members, residents and guests alike will pass friends enjoying a round of golf on the way to watch the sunset from the beach club with a glass of wine in hand, and children will make friends for life as they splash in the pool before having lunch at the Country Club.
Set within a 208-hectare olive grove dotted landscape that overlooks the picturesque traditional fishing village of its namesake, the region of Kilada is characterised by its mesmerising mountainous views and open rolling hills and provides an abundance of activities for guests and residents to enjoy. An authentic slice of Greece, Kilada and the surrounding regions make for the perfect environment for a morning bike ride or an evening trek, or for those looking to discover and enjoy the area at a more leisurely pace, an abundance of ancient Greek ruins are waiting to be explored. Across the stunning sapphire waters of Kilada is the legendary 40,000-year-old prehistoric Franchthi Cave, recently confirmed as the oldest continuously inhabited cave dwelling in the world – although today you can hear a pin drop as the surrounds are so still. Back on land, the region is strewn with UNESCO World Heritage sites, including the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus – which has been the main stage for Greek tragedy performances for more than 2,400 years, and Mycenae, one of the major centres of Greek civilization in Antiquity.
Just 2.5 hours by car from Athens International Airport (AIA), a 1hour 40-minute direct boat service or a 25-minute trip by helicopter, Kilada Country Club, Golf & Residences is easily accessible for those looking to visit whilst AIA itself has fast and direct access from London, Paris, Zurich and Dubai and all other main European cities.
Dolphin Capital Founder and Managing Director, Miltos Kambourides comments, “Our vision for Kilada Country Club, Golf & Residences is to create a country club for a community of like-minded individuals, a social hub for Porto Heli and an ideal base for exploration of the Greek Riviera. Kilada is a place where homeowners, members and visitors alike can enjoy impeccable service including the eastern Mediterranean’s only Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course.
“Our experience in developing other projects in the region has meant we have an innate understanding of what the area and our potential buyers need, which has allowed us to mastermind a vision that both sets itself apart and complements the neighbouring developments. Our intention for Kilada was clear from the outset – we want to create a new place to call home.”
An integral part of the mixed-use leisure and residential development will be its Country Club, a central community hub for Kilada residents and guests, and home to a swimming pool, tennis courts, gym and spa, alongside bars and restaurants – both inside and out. For those preferring to be by the sea, the Beach Club will be a social space, with a restaurant, cafe and bar, and a base to set sail from, with private coves for swimming, diving and snorkelling. The restaurants will be famed for serving freshly caught fish and seafood and will have a buzz that contributes to the sociable, pleasant and somewhat envious atmosphere created at Kilada Country Club, Golf & Residences.
Sales of the Signature Villa Collection will commence in June 2021, in tandem with the launch of the Kilada Founder’s programme. Prices for Villa plots start from €350K, and range in size from just below 1,000sqm to more than 2,000sqm.
