About the Property
House, 2 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
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. In 2015, some retractable shade sails were installed, to make this verandah usable throughout the day. 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. As of 2016, the two single beds shown in the photos will be replaced with a double bed. 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. New shade sails and slate tiling (2015/2016) reduce the glare and make this a very pleasant place to sit for most of the day. 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, you will need to take a taxi up to the aloni, where someone will meet you, take you up to the house, and hand over the keys.
Before making a payment, always call the manager at the number listed on our website to make sure your payment instructions are accurate.
