PEACEFUL, SEASIDE COUNTRY VILLA WITH POOL, BBQ, GARDEN, A/C, INTERNET

Porto Heli Villa Rental Photos and Description

Spacious villa for up to 8, 4 bed, 4 bath, ideal for family or group of friends

Villa Kostoula is a wonderful property for a large party or family. Situated in a peaceful, pine forested, residential area. The villa is a short walk from the sea and a lovely secluded bay. It is surrounded by a private garden with swimming pool. There are wonderful views from the pool and terraces towards the pretty island of Spetses.

Two bedrooms on the upper floor and two on the ground floor. All bedrooms have shower and WC en-suite. The main living area on the upper floor opens onto a covered veranda, a perfect cool corner to enjoy lazy meals. There is a pretty and comfortably furnished living area and fully fitted kitchen and dining area.

The ground floor can be reached by an internal or external stair and comprises one double, one twin bedroom opening onto the garden and pool terrace, a further living area, kitchenette/laundry area.

Sleeps 8 in comfort.

Porto Heli: The pretty village of Porto Heli lies around the loveliest natural bay in the Peloponnese. It faces the island of Spetses and the mountains across the Argo-Saronic gulf. Easily accessible from Athens either by road or hydrofoil.

There are some excellent restaurants and tavernas in the village as well as a good variety of bars and clubs.

The sheltered bays are ideal for water sports and there are two excellent ski schools, as well as qualified tuition in wake-boarding, wind-surfing, dinghy sailing, and scuba diving.

Places to visit: In the Peloponnese you can visit many of the ancient sites of Greece, most within easy reach. These include the ancient theatre at Epidaurus, where performances are still held in the summer months. Nafplion, a very attractive town and the first capital city of Greece.It is dominated by a medieval castle. Agamemnon's palace at Mycenae and the impressive walls at Tiryns.

If you take to the sea, then the islands of Spetses, Hydra and Poros each have their own special beauty and character. There is a regular hydrofoil service from the village as well as ferries and water taxis.

When to visit: The summer months are the liveliest in the village and on the beaches. It is a wonderful area for all kinds of watersports. From water-skiing with professional coaches, slalom courses and ski-jump to sailing, windsurfing, wake boarding or just pottering along the coast in a rented boat.

For less energetic break the loveliest days for walking and exploring are in the quieter months.

Springtime the colour and variety of the wild flowers is amazing, you can walk for hours enjoying the peaceful scenery. Autumn the clarity of light is extraordinary, if you are interested in painting or exploring the ancient sights, this is the time to visit.

Hi,

6 of us just spent 5 days in Clare's lovely villa and I couldn't recommend it highly enough. There is so much space and the villa's location and facilities were excellent. 4 separate rooms and 4 bathrooms, swimming pool, modern kitchen and bbq, what else do you need?

We were over from Scotland doing some climbing in the area so if this is of interest to you check out http://www.bolt-products.com/TheClimbing.htm. Didyma and Katafyki both have some really nice climbs (sport and/or trad).

Thanks for everything Clare and hopefully see you again sometime.

Cheers,
James
Owner's Response: James, very happy that you all enjoyed yourselves. I was interested to hear that the climbing was good and challenging. With so much to enjoy in the region when the weather is cooler it is worth taking advantage of low season prices and the beautiful, clear atmosphere.
Come back and see what you missed while climbing.

Our week is coming to an end, we are chilling out by the pool. Today was again so beautiful, sunny, hot. Nobody want to leave, the youngest of the party : Emily and Anaïs will be upset to leave back to Normandie, Grance.
The house is beautiful, very comfortahle, the view on the bay is breathtaking. Porto Heli is lovely. It is our annual family gathering (11 in total, from 18 months old to 40 years old): we would love to stay longer, a lot longer, adapt to the Greek life!

Here we have been for 2 weeks and we could have been for a longer time!!! The villa is lovely with many rooms and the swimming pool. We are a group of 6 persons and we have really enjoyed our time here! Everyone has been able to relax. Thank you so much for your hospitality. It would be nice to come sometimes again to this villa.
There is a very good restaurant in Porto Heli harbour called Ostria.
Thank you so much!

Perfect Villa

A beautiful villa with a personality that offers stunning views of the surrounding area. It is very well maintained and provides everything you need for a comfortable holiday, it even had a welcome package.

We were met by Clare who gave us a tour of the house and its facilities which was a nice personal touch.
The rooms were a perfect size for the 8 of us (mix of girls and boys) and each had its own bathroom.
It has a beautiful pool which is well maintained next to which is one of the three dining areas. We enjoyed eating breakfast on the upstairs veranda with views of the sea and Spetses. The boys enjoyed using the BBQ by the pool.
The secluded little beach 2 mins walk from the villa was stunning!

We found Porto- Heli to be ideally located for day trips to Archaeological sites and other towns and islands like Nauplion and Spetses.

Can’t wait to go back!

Good, but not as expected

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 16, 2008
  • Stayed: Sep 2008
We had a great holiday, but our main problem with this villa was that there was an expectation gap between what was advertised and what the villa was like in reality.

First and foremost, the beautiful view that you see above is not the view from the villa - it is very mis-leading. The owner will say that the picture is clearly labelled as a view of Hydra, which you can't see from the villa, but when you don't know the area you would assume this is the view from the villa. The house you can see is not the villa you'll be staying in.

Secondly, the owner lists the villa as luxury. It is by no means luxury, which also led to the expectation gap.

Having said that, we had a lovely holiday and the villa was everything we needed - if it had been advertised correctly we still would have chosen it. The pool area in particular is excellent, and the pool is cleaned regularly.

The villa was clean, and had plenty of amenities - it is well stocked, and in a good location - Porto Heli and Spetses were both in striking distance and we found it to be a great location for a family holiday.

Owner's Response: I’m sorry to hear that the party was disappointed with the house but I feel the implication that the photos are misleading to be unfair.
The view towards Hydra is clearly described as being just that, it is designed to give an idea of the area and the truly spectacular views. The house is described as facing the island of Spetses. In addition a very clear photo of the house shows that is a different colour to the corner of the house in the photo of the view towards Hydra.
Luxury is a very subjective term and I have a visitors book full of praise for the house, inevitably some things will not be to everyone’s taste.

Even in Greece, Porto Heli is an area of outstanding beauty.

Situated on the first 'finger' of the eastern Peloponnese, it's heavily indented coastline offers an endless variety of spectacular views. Easily reached from Athens by sea or road it is also only a short drive or boat trip from some of the most famous historical sites in the world and the prettiest islands.
