What makes this Villa unique
Unique location, unique views. This residence is set in a unique secluded location overlooking the blue Aegean sea. Guests can enjoy absolute privacy, yet at the same time they can reach the town of Karystos whithin a short drive distance (around 6 km) for shopping and dinning excursions. A beautiful and quiet bay with blue crystal clear waters is reachable in 5 minutes walking distance, while many other organised and non-organised bays/beaches are located within close proximity to the residence. Magnificent views of the sea, the sunset and the mountains of sierra Ohi can be enjoyed throughout the residence. This is a wonderful escape for visitors to enjoy local nature, listen to the sea breeze and gaze the stars with the flexibility of effortless visits to Athens and its attractions.

Really enjoy our stay
Dear Maure, it was our pleasure to host you and your family. You are a wonderful family and we would love to see you again any time you wish to come back! Thank you for your review and the comments submitted.
La maison est tout simplement ravissante, entre mer et montagne, en tous points identique aux photos
La maison est facile d'accès depuis le port de Raffina (compter 1 heure de traversée), les propriétaires sont même venues nous accueillir à notre arrivée en bateau à Marmari. J'en profite pour saluer ici leur gentillesse, leurs grandes disponibilité et réactivité quelle que soit votre demande.
La maison est à la fois fonctionnelle, très bien orientée pour profiter de l'ombre et de la vue et la décoration très raffinée.Nous étions 4, mais elle est tout aussi confortable pour 6.
Le jardin, très bien entretenu, sera apprécié des enfants.
La plage est effectivement à 5 mn à pied, et en plein mois d'août nous étions bien souvent tout seuls!
La "grosse" ville Karystos est située à 10mn en voiture. Vous y trouvez absolument tout. C'est un bonheur de flâner le soir, vous n'avez que l'embarras du choix pour prendre un verre ou manger. Nous avons rencontré très peu de touristes étrangers, mais essentiellement des grecs.
Nous n'attendons qu'une prochaine opportunité pour y retourner!
Dear Herve, really happy that you and your family enjoyed the property and the city of Karystos. Looking forward to seeing you again and offer you our best hospitality.
Amazing holiday in a beautiful villa
We had a fabulous restful holiday in this beautiful villa. The views are spectacular, the villa extremely comfortable and only a few minutes walk from a lovely quiet beach. Pavlina and her family were so friendly, very helpful and we felt so welcomed. Thank you so much!
The property was very clean, well maintained and has absolutely everything you need. We would very much recommend this as a great place to go to relax and unwind in glorious surroundings.
Dear Jane, very happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed our hospitality and every single aspect of our property during your last summer holidays. Thank you for recommending our property to potential visitors.
Comfortable spacious villa in a stunning setting!
Our welcome began with tasty fruit and drinks served to us on the veranda when we arrived. It was so refreshing after our flight, drive and ferry crossing! We enjoyed the beautiful view out across the Aegean Sea as the final touches were made to the villa (we had arrived on an earlier ferry than anticipated!)
The grounds were huge and well-kept. The villa was thoughtfully and tastefully furnished. We thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor barbecue area. The beach a few minutes below us was practically private - we only saw a few other folk there during our entire two week stay. Dining and living area had a wonderful double aspect - looking out over the sea on one side and up to the craggy heights of Mount Ochi on the other.
Karystos was a short drive away where we could get our groceries and where we could eat out. This part of Evia island only has local tourists coming across from Athens on the weekends which we thoroughly enjoyed. The ferry crossing was very straight-forward so we had enthralling day-trips to Athens and Corinth. Climbing Mount Ochi was challenging but the views were stupendous. We also appreciated going along to St Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church on Sunday.
Overall we had a wonderful, thoroughly relaxing time and were very sorry to leave. The owners were warm, friendly & quick to respond to our questions.
Some things to mention. Originally the villa description included a bath. This was a key factor in our choice (we worked in the tropics for the last 10 years without a bath). However, we discovered no bath. The owner was very apologetic ("lost in translation"?) and the web description of the villa was changed immediately.
We also realized there was no DVD player. The owner had one couriered to us urgently. There was also no kettle (although the description of the villa didn't mention one) so making tea was awkward, although there was a lovely coffeemaker. The owners also couriered through a kettle but unfortunately this was a travel-sized one which wasn't a huge help so we stuck to boiling water in saucepans.
One of the upstairs bedrooms is not air-conditioned. Normally this would not be a problem as one could simply sleep with the window open. However the first week of our holiday, the whole region experienced very high winds, day and night. The windows could not be opened and with them closed the third bedroom was too hot. Putting air-conditioning in this room would create options for visitors.
I would like to thank you for your nice review and advise in return that your proposal relating to the addition of an extra air-condition in the third room (children's room) has been implemented, meaning the whole property is fully air-conditioning from this summer going forward. Undoubtedly, our visitors' comments and suggestions are always very welcome and useful for the improvement of the services we offer and also for the better stay of our guests.
Very nice Villa, excellent hosts, beautiful views.
Very nice property and the family that owns the property are really sweet and attentive hosts. The villa was beautiful with a lot of attention to little details to make your stay a warm one. It was very clean, spacious, and comfortable with great sea views from the terrace in front of the living room. It has all the facilities you need, nice kitchen and nice bedrooms with a/c (except one). We had a very nice time with my wife and young son and really enjoyed the little beach/cove walking distance from the villa. Highly recommended.
Dear Francesco, really pleased to hear that you and your family enjoyed your stay in our property. Just wanted to add that an extra air-condition in the children's room has been put this summer, thus the whole property is fully air-conditioning from now going forward. Thank you for recommending our property to potential guests.
A peaceful a panoramic villa
I and my wife had a beautiful stay in this villa.
First of all, the owners welcomed us with kindness and disposability, describing in detail all the features of the property and the attractions of the sorroundings.
The description of the property on the web site is accurate but, in the photos, it all appears smaller than the real thing: the villa is huge, with a splendid view on the seaside, a large garden and all the features you can desire to have a perfect R&R.
Everything inside is new or perfectly mantained and the owners offered all the help they can provide to better the stay. The surroundings are beautiful with lots of beaches, bars and restaurants. We especially enjoyed the beach just in front of the villa (3 mins of footpath) with crystal clear waters, sand and low cliffs.
We would totally reccomend this property to friends and relatives and we plan to get back there in the future.
Dear Daniele, really pleased to hear about the good times you and your wife had in our property and the surroundings of Karystos city. Looking forward to welcoming you again in our property and offer you our best hospitality.
