Alonissos house description
The house is just below the old and picturesque village on top of the hill, a 25 minute walk up or down the old donkey track, and a bit longer along the road. The house is a short walk (approximately 120 metres) along a dirt track from the nearest car park and bus stop. Cars and motorbikes can be hired in the port, and a bus service operates regularly between the port and the old village.
The house is typical of the old village, and was renovated in July 2011. There is a lovely paved courtyard at the entry of the property, perfect for outside breakfasts and lunches. Downstairs, there is a large entry way with a small table and chairs. To the left is an amply-sized room, with two single beds that double as sofas.
The pine fitted kitchen has a new electric instant hot water system, a new electric cooker, an electric fridge/freezer and lots of marble bench tops. It is fully equipped with plenty of crockery, cutlery and cookware, a toaster, kettle and coffee machine, but there is no microwave oven. The tiled bathroom has a shower over a half-bath, a basin, mirror and a WC.
Upstairs is a large bedroom with two single beds. French doors open onto a terrace that has expansive views of the beautiful azure marine park (protected habitat of the Mediterranean Monk Seal) on one side, and the hora (old village) on the other. This terrace is unusual in that it runs the width and length of the house on two sides, providing superb views of nearly 360° and views of both sunrises and sunsets.
To the east, much of the island is visible; to the south, the Mediterranean is dotted with lots of smaller islands in the marine park; and to the west, all the comings and goings of the village can be observed. On a clear day you can see the island of Evia.
There are numerous tavernas in the village; food and wine is plentiful. Several small shops are stocked with most essentials, and a bakery provides a daily selection of fresh breads, local pies and sweets.
Several beaches are half an hour’s walk up or down, some with tarmac roads, others with dirt roads or footpaths. Most beaches have restaurants with fresh fish daily for most of the season.
Alonnisos is a long narrow island, the last in a chain of three. At the other end of the chain, Skiathos Island has the nearest international airport, with direct flights from the UK and several other European airports. Alonissos is serviced from the mainland by regular Flying Dolphin (hydrofoil) and ferry services.
Many visitors take charter flights from other European countries to Skiathos, from where they catch a ferry boat or a Flying Dolphin to Alonnisos. However, please note that flights to Skiathos generally only operate between May and October. Alternatively, visitors flying into Athens can catch a bus to Agios Konstantinos, and from there, a ferry boat or Flying Dolphin to Alonnisos. It is also possible to fly to Thessaloniki or Volos, and then catch a ferry boat or Flying Dolphin to Alonnisos.
Upon arrival in Alonissos, someone will be at the port to meet you, take you up to the house, and hand over the keys.

The house have a nice atmosphere and is in a very good location, the old town is the most beatiful area in the island. The roof in the house have a spectacular view. If you want to live the greek experience and have nice neighbor, this is the right place.

My wife and I have had the great pleasure of staying in this home on two separate occasions, and would do so again in a heartbeat. It's located in the lower area of the Old Village of Alonnisos, so it's very quiet and peaceful for the most part. The home itself is very well-maintained and its upper deck/patio provides exceptional views of the Aegean sea and surrounding hillsides, including a westerly view towards the Old Village. The kitchen has everything you need for preparing meals, and there is ample space in the living room and the upstairs bedroom for two or more people. The property itself is very beautiful, as it includes numerous flowering plants and trees interspersed throughout it. If you would like the feeling of having your own quaint little "home" on Alonnisos for your holidays, this is definitely that type of place.

My husband and I and our two girls (16yr and 13yr) had a wonderful two weeks on Alonissoss in July 2008. The lovely accommodation located in the upper village allowed for an authentic visit to Greece. Waking up each morning to sunshine and spectacular views was such a treat. We could either walk up to a taverna or eat in and enjoy the view. There is a bus that takes you down to Pattitiri for shopping or tourist attractions. However, we often opted for the walk down to either the village or one of the beaches. It was worthwhile renting a car for a few days so we could explore the entire island. If you enjoy peace and beauty this is the place for you to visit. Bring some good books, comfortable walking shoes, lots of sunscreen and a camera to capture the beauty and create memories for the future. I highly recommend a visit to this island and stay in this charming house. Yvonne
