Excellent - Again
Stayed in this villa for second time, and again everything was perfect. Highly recommended for families with children.
Thank you a lot for your comment and your appreciation.
Thank you Nikolaos for meeting us and our dogs in your beautifull house. The house is very well furnished, with a lot of space, wide and green garden and places to sit outside. The area is very quiet and green. The beach is very near to the house, 5 minutes walk and is long and sandy and not crowded during the week, except Saturday and Sunday. To go to shops and tavernas you need a car. We have just one recommendation- to have a dishwasher .
Thank you again Nikolaos and your mother for the warm welcome.
Iliana and friends+dogs
Thank you for your kind words. It has been a pleasure hosting you. You will always be welcomed. Your recommendation is precious and will be taken into account.
Very spacious and comfortable accommodation for a large group of people.
Enjoyed our stay at the seaside with extended family ( group of 9 ). Large home with all facilities for a pleasant stay. Parking for 2 cars in the backyard, good outdoor space, well equipped kitchen. Close 10 min walk to a quiet beach, used by locals. Supermarket 10 min drive. Some close by restaurants. Overall great experience, recommended. Evcharisto poli, Nikolaos and parents.😄
Thank you for your review, Mr Peter! We are satisfied that you enjoyed it. We would be glad to see you again in the future.
Spacious villa with everything for excellent vacation
We stayed in this villa for 9 days in 2017. We were a group of 8 (4 adults and 4 teenagers).
Villa is located between villages of Leptokaria (to the south) and Litochoro and Plaka (north). Leptokaria is a few km away (~45 min walk) and Litochoro is about 8 km away in the foothills of Mt. Olympus. We chose this location because we wanted to hike Mt. Olympus and enjoy the beach, and the location is ideal for both. House is less than 5 min walk from the beach, no uphill or stairs, and 10 min drive from the start of hike trails. In the evenings short drive to Leptokaria will get you to the town where you can enjoy a stroll along the beach or one of many restaurants.
Local beach has volleyball net and we enjoyed playing there. Nearby there are pubs on the beach where you can get a drink or souvlaki, pancetta, gyros etc. The house is away from any noise, but close enough for those who want to enjoy night life as well.
House: First, I want to thank Nikos for his hospitality. He was very friendly, communication was easy (in English), and he answered all our questions.
The house is surrounded by fence, in quiet neighborhood and we felt very safe. House itself is VERY spacious. It has 2 bedrooms on ground floor, and two bedrooms on first floor (total sleeping 9) and additional double couch/bed in the first floor and sofa bed on ground floor. I want to stress that even with 12 people in your party, you will not feel that you are in tight space. On the ground floor there is very large living area with dining table large enough to fit 10 or more people. In the same area are several sofas and chairs in separate corner where one can enjoy TV, card play or evening relaxation. (We brought our DVD player and enjoyed movies in the night on big TV). There is large outside covered patio on 3 sides of the house, outside kitchen, second refrigerator and barbecue area. On the first floor there is spacious living area, and very spacious and covered terrace / balcony ideal for afternoon relaxation or evening dinner. Kitchen is small but fully equipped for every need and Nikos made sure to provide additional items like cold water, wine, and very tasty homemade marmalade. House proved to be cool enough even on hottest days, no need for air conditioning; build and equipped for convenience and comfort.
House is surrounded by large and beautiful garden with many fruit trees (figs, kiwis, apples, grapes), some tomatoes, water melons.
I highly recommend this house.
Ivan, thank you for your very detailed and descriptive review! Me and my family are very satisfied that you enjoyed so much your vacation in our home. We hope to see you again sometime. You will always be most welcomed, you have been ideal visitors.
Schönes Haus am Olymp
Ein großzügiges Haus und ein großzügiger Vermieter. Wir hatten gar nicht genug Zeit, alles im Haus zu nutzen: den großen Garten, die Außenküche, die zwei Wohnzimmer mit allem was wir da hätten machen können ...
We are absolutely satisfied by Mr Klaus and his family. Very communicative and friendly, it was a pleasant surprise to find that they also speak greek. They had tied up the house before they left. An easy recommendation for the future hosts.
tolle Villa zwischen Bergen und Meer
Wir haben uns eine Woche lang super wohl gefühlt in diesem Traumhaus. Die Lage ist ideal um die Gegend um den Olymp herum zu erkunden und auch für Ausflüge zum Pelion oder nach Thessaloniki oder Meteora bestens geeignet. Der Strand ist ca. 100 m entfernt und gut zu Fuß zu erreichen. Der Vermieter ist sehr freundlich und immer hilfsbereit, von der hausgemachten Marmelade und den Keksen schwärmen wir immer noch....Das Haus ist in einem hervorragendem Zustand, alles sehr sauber und sehr gut ausgestattet mit allem was man braucht ( und vielem mehr ) Das Haus ist etwas ausserhalb des Ortes, dadurch ist ein Auto schon erforderlich um zum Bäcker oder zum einkaufen oder bummeln zu gelangen. Insgesamt der perfekte Ausgangspunkt für einen schönen Urlaub, ideal geeignet auch für 2 Familien die zusammen Urlaub machen möchten.
Mrs Waltraud and her friends were excelent guests! Before they leave the house they had taken care of removing the garbage and even cleaning up the place! I am totally pleased to have hosted them.
The location's main advantage is the unique combination of seaside and mountainous character within a few kilometres distance. Hike in the centuries-old woods of Olympus and even to the peak of the "House of the Greek Gods". Enjoy the beautiful long beaches of Pieria. Don't forget to visit the significant archaeological site and museum of Dion and the castle of Platamon.
