A charming retreat by the sea
Great little house in a fantastic location if you love peace and quiet.
Beautiful little house in an Olive grove
We've just spent two lovely weeks in this house near Asopos ( 3km) and Bozas beach. The house is 10 minutes' walk along the quiet road to Bozas which has an excellent and friendly restaurant and a beautiful beach.
Well furnished on 3 floors, the house gave us a comfortable and beautiful base for our travels round the lower part of this 'finger' of the Peloponnese. Access to floors is by means of a spiral staircase. The kitchen is well-equipped. The house is set amidst olive trees giving a strong sense of privacy.
Eleni and Kostas provided very helpful information about the house and the area. We were welcomed by Kostas' wonderful parents (who speak only Greek) who directed us from Asopos then showed us all we needed to know about the cottage and more. Their warm and extremely friendly approach was a great welcome to the house.
The shaded garden has hammocks and comfortable seating. We walked regularly to Plitra which has lovely calm beaches and a number of very good restaurants. The walk took us about an hour from the house and gave us a bit more of a sense of the local area.
We had a wonderful relaxing break in this pretty house. The electrics of the house only allow small appliances, lighting and chargers to be used. While there is no wifi we got a strong cellphone signal so with a decent data package we had a strong mobile internet connection. Fridge and hob are operated by gas. There are a number of brikis and a small gas briki burner so we regularly made our own Greek coffee. On the warmer nights it might have been preferable to have the use of a fan, but this was our only reservation about the house.
We had a very memorable and enjoyable holiday in this unusual and distinctive property. We were delighted and honoured to meet Kostas' parents. We have no hesitation in recommending this house to anyone looking for a holiday in an unspoilt part of the Greek mainland.
Vacances de rêves
Certainement la plus belle et plus incroyable des maisons. Située loin de tout, cette petite maison offre tout le confort nécessaire avec seulement trois panneaux solaires et un puit . La maison est milieu des oliviers à 50m d'une falaise surplombant la mer, offrant les plus incroyables couchés de soleil que l'on puisse imaginer. De plus, Eleni nous a accueillis de la plus belle des façons, olives et huile en sus, le bonheur!
A really breath taking house closed to the beach. Quiet, lonely, peaceful.
We would love to come back pretty soon.
Un excellent séjour dans un endroit de rêve
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans un endroit de rêve pour qui aime le nature, le calme et la beauté des paysages grecs. La grande plage est toute proche, la maison environnée d'oliviers et de figuiers, est impeccable. Son équipement est simple mais tout à fait suffisant. Son aménagement permet de vivre au maximum à l'extérieur tout en évitant les soleils les plus chauds. On "sent" qu'il s'agit d'une maison de famille, et non d'un espace dédié à la seule location.
L'accueil d'Eleni et de sa famille est très cordial. Nous les remercions vivement de leur accueil.
From the lovely greeting from Eleni (the owners mum) to the jars of olives and bottles of olive oil in the kitchen all made a great and lasting impression. The house is clean and has lost of great little touches.The setting is amazing with truly breathtaking sunsets. If you want a really "get away from it all" type of holiday book this house now! (I would have given 4 stars but did struggle with the stove)
