A spacious and impressive villa with a superb 1st floor balcony looking out to sea
This is an impressive villa, with 5 large bedrooms and 1 smaller, and 3 bathrooms; for most of the time we were just 3 couples with a baby which gave us plenty of room to spread out and retain some privacy as well. The 1st floor balcony is easily its best feature, with a large table at which we sat 10 people for 2 days when our guests overlapped, and it was fine, but usually there were only 6 of us. The balcony has the dining table on one side and comfortable seating on the other, sufficient for 6, although as the villa has numerous chairs it was easy to pull a few extra out when required. We sat and ate on the balcony almost all the time, as it possesses a fabulous view across orange, grapefruit and pomegranate groves towards the sea, the view enhanced by the addition of the islands of Agistri, Aegina and others, as well as the peninsula of Methana. We were unlucky enough to encounter Medicane Zorba during our last few days, which brought cold weather and rain, forcing us indoors, but the upstairs reception room is enormous, with another huge dining table, and plenty of comfortable seating, so there was no shortage of space. We even lit a fire in the fireplace on one dismal evening which we really enjoyed. The only slight disadvantage to the villa is the kitchen which although amply equipped is rather small for a villa for up to 10 people or more. However, we took it in turns to cook and went in to Palea Epidavros for many meals so managed perfectly well. It would have helped us with the baby if there had been steps into the pool, but apart from this it is a good pool although with such a wonderful beach near by we did not use it very often. The downstairs apartment is rather darker, but our couple with baby made good use of it and enjoyed the privacy and space it offered them, as well as its french doors opening towards a little patio and the pool. I would definitely recommend the villa and all our guests agreed it was a marvellous find.
Hello Nicola and thank you so very much for your amazingly descriptive and well-written review. It will certainly be helpful to other guests, and us of course. We are absolutely delighted that you enjoyed your long vacation, and utilized so much of the villa and all it has to offer. Regarding the kitchen, most large groups use both kitchens (upstairs&downstairs), but it seems you managed just fine using the upstairs one only. We are very happy that you made use of - and appreciated the balcony, dinning areas, both floors, swimming pool, and even fireplace! You have been a pleasure to have as a guest from your first communication to the day you left. We wish you all the best, and sincerely hope to hear from you again soon! Kind regards, Alex, Elpida
Very friendly hosts and a pleasant environment for families with children. Rest in the proper sense to say. For each recommendation
Hello and thank you very much for your positive and to-the-point review; it is much appreciated. Mostly we are happy that you enjoyed your stay and had a relaxing holiday! Hopefully we will hear from you again soon when planning your next trip to Greece! Kind regards, Alex, Elpida
Calm and Relaxation Among the Orange Groves
Villa Thalia is everything its description promised and so much more. Well situated to easily visit Ancient Epidavros, Nafplio, Mycenae, and surrounding towns, the villa is located in the middle of several orange groves which produced a welcome calm and quiet when decompressing at the end of the day with an expansive view of the sea across the trees. There is a decent supermarket within walking distance and two amply stocked kitchens which we made good use of during our stay. Our two families - 8 people in all - used the upstairs kitchen, living room, and balcony as a shared living area and never felt cramped. The downstairs area was dark and cool - a nice respite when needed. Most importantly, Elpida and Chris were very gracious hosts, answering all of our questions readily throughout the week. As it happened, we visited during record rain for the area and as testament to our hosts' kindness, Elpida offered to extend our stay a short while as the weather was supposed to turn warm and sunny again just after we left. If we could have changed our plans, we would have taken her up on the offer enthusiastically.
The downsides we encountered at the villa were minor: three bathrooms upstairs and only one down was a bit unbalanced but we dealt with it by strategically locating the family with teenage daughters upstairs; a slow-draining shower in one of the upstairs bathrooms overflowed the shower area onto the bathroom floor at one point - easily corrected.
We thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated all of the charm, relaxation, and amenities that Villa Thalia offered. We hope to return again some day.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a detailed and well-written review. It is very helpful and we truly appreciate it.
We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at our villa and had such a relaxing vacation, even though you encountered some unexpected rain. Furthermore, we are very happy that you took full advantage of the villa, as well as the surrounding area and all it has to offer. It's a shame that you couldn't stay for a few more days, as the weather quickly took a turn and is back again to warm&sunny; typical for this time of year. You were a joy to welcome and have as our guest, and we hope to hear from you again very soon!
Warm regards, Alex, Elpida, Chris
Ps. Slow-draining shower issue fixed :)

A very confortable stay in villa thaleia
We were very happy to stay in villa Thaleia. The house is very nice as we expected from the website. The flush may nead some more pressure though. It is a good starting point to visit the Argolide region and the house is just a five minuts walk from the beach and restaurants. We met the owners on our arrival and asked them for some advice. They were always prompt to answer our demands.

Simply the best
It was our first time in Greece. We decided to select Epidavros because of its strategic location and the infinitely number of things to do around. We chose villa Thaleia as the elegant place that could accommodate our big family. We are very happy for both of our choices. Spot on! The villa was much more than we expected. An aura of class and comfort. We enjoyed every moment. Thank you. Villa Thaleia is a lovely place to be. We strongly recommend it to all families and their friends.
