About Costis Paikos
As a traveler, i feel very warm when i get sincere hospitality and this is what I try to do as a host as well. I think contributing to people's happy times is rewarding and deeply human ;)
Why Costis Paikos chose Ermioni
The Villa is located in Porto Heli, a natural bay on the southern Peloponnese Argolid coast opposite Spetses and Hydra. Its proximity to them makes Porto Heli a magnet for the yachting set. Porto Heli is about 190km from Athens (2 hrs) by road or 55 nautical miles from Piraeus Port. Water sports, swimming, calm seas, child-friendly beaches, great tourist facilities, are some of the things the place has to offer. Most importantly, Porto Heli acts as a base for exploring the magnificent historical sites of the Peloponnese, Nauplion, Mycenae, Epidauros & Monemvasia, as well as the high-class & stylish islands of Spetses & Hydra. The food in most restaurants is traditional Greek, including fresh fish, local vegetables & gourmet meat recipes. It is one of the highlights. The climate is also great, with lots of sun and low humidity.

Lovely house with beautiful views over the port.
A lovely location with views over the port and the surrounding countryside. The set-up of the main terrace which is accessed from the kitchen or sitting room and looks onto the pool, is really conducive to a relaxing and refreshing time. You can eat under the jasmine 'gazebo' too, which is delightful. The gardens are well thought out, planted and maintained. There is a fabulous pomegranate tree and lots of beautiful cacti. We enjoyed a visiting tortoise, some nearby goats and gorgeous bats over the pool at dusk. It's an easy drive into Port Cheli, with lots of great places to eat, or have a drink and all you need such as two pharmacies, lovely bakeries, souvenir shops and also some chi-chi boutiques for pretty jewellery and gifts. You can also walk into the town quite easily if you don't mind the heat and the uphill on the way back! The owner, Costis was very helpful and all questions were quickly answered. There was also a local contact who spoke French and English and was equally helpful and attentive. We were three generations of family and all had a fab time. I would certainly recommend this place for a relaxing and interesting base to explore the nearby islands and this part of mainland Greece. I would love to go back!
Thanks for the kind words. I m really happy you had a great time and i ll be happy to host you again anytime in the future! You treated the house like it was yours, thank you!
Ein wunderbares Haus. Ein herrlicher Pool. Eine tolle Aussicht auf die Bucht von Porto Cheli und ein liebenswürdiger und hilfsbereiter Gastgeber Costis. Couldn't be better!
A lovely home with bags of character...
This is a very beautiful home with loads of character. If you are expecting cutting edge technologies, this isn't for you but if you are looking for a beautiful, traditional villa with magnificent views , a wonderful big , well kept pool and a host that has your well being in mind , then you have a perfect place.
We travelled there with our two daughters , six and eleven Years old. The girls loved the place , there was loads of space in the garden to play and the pool was a magnet for them. I loved having my swim early morning and late at night, the pool is large enough to give the adults the space and also has a shallow part at the front half for the not so confident swimmers.
The villa is very well equipped to enjoy a break by the sea. The host left food items for us to enjoy and we really felt at home with all the books and music CDs. They even opened their bar for us to enjoy while we are there. ( Nice to have a glass of your favorite tipple by the tool admiring the view).
The only suggestions I would make to the host is to add an Air Conditioning unit in the hallway, on the upstairs level, to keep that part of the house cooler, as when we were there the weather temperatures did soar and had a heatwave, so the ceiling fans couldn't cope and it would have been handy.
I`m sure they are sufficient though if there is no heat wave !
The area of Porto Heli and the surroundings have excellent clean waters and perfect snorkeling opportunities. The villa is situated just a sort drive ( 5 min ) from the port and it is a great base for exploring the surrounding villages and towns.The food around the resort is good quality and loads of organic produce at very good value for money.
We very much enjoyed the fresh fish straight from the boats by the harbour , excellent quality and good prices.Also try the local oranges, they might not look the part but they taste great and make great orange juice !
Overall , a great break and we all enjoyed our time in this Porto Heli Greek home. Thanks Costis.
A stylish and luxurious villa!
My wife and I spent part of our honeymoon here and it was truly a delight.
The tranquil garden affords cooling shade and the terrace offers sweeping views to enjoy whilst dinner my al fresco.
Inside the Villa is luxurious and spacious, but also feels somehow like a home.
We can't recommend it highly enough and I will return...
