  • A unique gem

    "There are so many excellent attributes to Baba Yorgo's, it is impossible to describe them all. But at least let me share some highlights that demonstrate our enthusiasm. We travelled for 2 months in Bulgaria and Greece so a village home in a rural setting provided an excellent change from hotels, pensions and guest houses; self catering and solitude. The house and garden are beautiful and well maintained; we regret not allocating several days just to simply sit and enjoy the ambience of this place more than we did. We not only self catered but also went to the local taverna (Petrino, there is only one) and became immersed in village night life and the hospitality of Christo and Marina without a common language to explain the many laughs we all shared as we communicated through gestures. Access to the glories of the Mani, spectacular drives, beaches, stunning coastlines, perpendicular mountain roads, caves with attitude, the magic of Mystra, interesting towns, fascinating history and ancient folklore; all within an day trip or two or three. The rural setting means lovely views from the terrace, tinkling of sheep and goat bells, birds twittering and absence of artificial noise; drink in the serenity! Cleverly priced so that a stay here is affordable based on the number of residents not floor space; we appreciated that a mature couple like us could enjoy Baba Yorgo's in a different way to a family or a group of friends without any premium. Adoni and his cousin Maria have this one nailed for friendly, professional, responsive and well managed accommodation."

  • Un endroit enchanteur sur l'île de Sifnos

    "La Thimonia est une ancienne grange magnifiquement restaurée aux murs épais, aux fenêtres munies de moustiquaires et au sol dallé de larges pierres. L’entrée de la propriété se fait par l’arrière où l’on découvre un verger abrité. Un escalier de pierre mène à la première terrasse au niveau de l’entrée de la maison. Une oliveraie répartie sur deux terrasses séparées par un mur de pierre occupe la majeure partie du terrain. Au bout de la maison, la porte-fenêtre de la chambre accède à une petite terrasse à l’ombre d’une treille où pendent quelques grappes mordorées en septembre. En face la mer semble proche. Le village de Kastro est édifié sur un rocher au-dessus des flots. Vers le nord les villages blancs d’Appolonia et d’Artemonas s’étagent sur les collines. L’après-midi le jardin de la Thimonia resplendit sous le soleil et un léger vent tempère son ardeur. Le banc à l’ombre des oliviers est un lieu agréable les jours de fortes chaleurs. Il fait presque frais quand l’après-midi avance et que le vent se lève. La vue est magnifique. La mer prend des tonalités plus denses. Les maisons blanches brillent sur les collines avoisinantes. Quelques nuages glissent occultant le soleil. L’ombre du vieux figuier grandit. Des colombes s’assemblent à proximité et s’envolent joyeusement, des corbeaux croisent, des oiseaux de proie guettent plus haut. Vous vous sentirez bien en ce lieu enchanteur. La maison est agréable, et chose rare, elle dispose d'un vrai bureau avec un fauteuil confortable et une lampe où l'on peut travailler à son aise. La wifi fonctionne bien. Il y a deux supermarchés bien achalandés à 10 minutes à pied. Elaine, la propriétaire est la personne la plus amicale qu'on puisse imaginer."
