About Paul Barter

British couple that love finding places that are both scenic and inspiring. Enjoy frequent holidays in Italy and Macedonia. Enjoy spending time with our now grown up family.

Paul Barter purchased this villa in 2008

Why Paul Barter chose Ohrid

We found this site whilst holidaying in Ohrid. We were so taken by the area that we decided we wanted a holiday home here. When we found it, it was half built so we employed an architect to complete the design to our specification.

It was the stunning views that attracted us, together with the very friendly people of Ohrid. We love going on holiday here several time a year and have got to know all the good restaurants and attractions and spend many an hour sat on the balconies or by the pool enjoying the sunny weather and amazing views.

It is truly awe inspiring

What makes this villa unique

The views, the peace, the town, the lake. Lovely walks in the mountainous park overlooking the lake

Beautiful villa in a stunning location!

  • 5 of 5

Coming to Ohrid in Macedonia was a complete gamble for us, somewhere new and different, but what an incredible surprise when we got here! The villa took our breath away when we first arrived. The photos don't do it justice at all. It's so spacious with rooms on different levels offering such character. You can sit in the living room and look out of the floor-to-ceiling windows at the amazing panaromic of Ohrid town and lake...or sit outside and take in the same views on either of the two balconies.

The villa is managed by an English speaking local who was incredibly kind to us. We had decided not to rent a car and he very kind and ordered taxis for us each day (when we come back again we will do so as the walk down the hill with young children is a bit precarious!).

All in all, it was an amazing holiday and we will definitely be returning to Villa Kairos and Ohrid. Both are hidden gems that we are so pleased we found!

Absolutely beautiful

  • 5 of 5

A gorgeous villa in a lovely location, very peaceful yet close to all local amenities with fine restaurants.

The villa is well equipped and there was nothing lacking, everywhere was spotlessly clean and the pool was a real bonus.

We would highly recommend this villa and struggle to think who it would not suit!

An outstanding villa in a great setting

  • 5 of 5

If anything the owners have undersold this property with their description and photos on the site. The finish and design are exceptional with the living area and terraces arranged to get the maximum benefit from the panoramic views from the property. And what views - we never tired of gazing out over the lake to the town beyond, every change in weather and lighting lent a new aspect to appreciate.

The standard of accommodation is extremely high and has every comfort you will need on your holiday. The pool is well landscaped and is great for cooling down after a trek up into the national park where the villa is set.

We had a great time exploring the area and found plenty of good places to eat serving food to suit all tastes. There is more than enough to see in the area, particularly for history buffs and we found the locals very friendly and helpful. It was refreshing to be in the minority as British holiday makers.

We've already booked again for next year and, given that the ages of our party ranged from 10 to 84 years old, that's the ultimate recommendation !

A lovely villa in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from our holiday in Ohrid and had a brilliant time- I would recommend this holiday to anyone.

There is plenty to see and do in the area or a great location to relax and enjoy the sunshine. The villa was perfect for us. The standard of accommodation was excellent and had all of the amenities we required. All the rooms were very generous in size, the outdoor spaces boasted fantastic views over the lake and enabled us to enjoy some beautiful sunsets whilst having dinner on the terrace. The pool was another great feature which didn’t disappoint. We were thoroughly impressed with the Villa and would definitely like to return.

As described on the website there are plenty of local attractions both in Ohrid and the surrounding area. We were even able to paraglide out over the lake on one of the days, which is another experience that we recommend.

All in all we were unsure of what to expect from Macedonia and in particular Ohrid as we had never been before, however we thoroughly enjoyed the holiday and would definitely like to return one day!
