If you want a true Greek experience away from the very touristy locations but close enough to so many amazing ancient locations rent this house.
Before our vacation even started Maria was a plethora of information that made our vacation so much more enjoyable. She helped us with directions to wonderful places to see, cafes to eat authentic Greek food, markets to shop at, help with what to pack, recipes to cook etc., etc. We were confident that our stay would be amazing just by her emails.
When we first arrived at the village I called Thanasi and he met us within minutes. He was so kind and very helpful with all of the information and instructions on how to use every amenity that was in the house. He had great recommendations for day trips and was there every time we needed him. He even helped us to communicate with the wonderful village people we met at the cafe. He was an amazing asset to us during our 6 day stay at the house.
The house is very secure with a gate that makes you feel safe right away. The house was very clean and well supplied with toilet paper, paper towels, dishes, utensils and everything else needed to cook and keep everything clean and organized. It was very spacious and easy to settle into. I spent may mornings and evenings sipping my coffee and wine on the front porch just listening to the quaint village noises and the quiet of the night. It felt like a home away from home.
The house was located within minutes of ancient sites and we took many day trips that were 2-4 hours drive time round trip, which gave us plenty of time to explore some of the largest ancient sites.
The people of this small village were so kind and made us feel welcome from the start. Even with the language barrier we were able to get along so well with them that we feel like we have made life long friends.
The only issues we had was that the washing machine was not working so we had to use the laundry in Tripoli which was a little inconvenient and some of the windows did not work so we were afraid to open the other ones in fear of breaking any of them. These issues did not take away from our wonderful experience in this house and I would not hesitate to stay here again if I am lucky enough to ever visit Greece in the future.
I was pleasantly surprised that my expectations were not only met but far exceeded what I had imagined. I highly recommend this Stone Village House in Greece.
