ALONISSOS, ROMANTIC VILLA WITH STUNNING SEA VIEW

Alonissos Villa Rental Photos and Description

Close to village, walking distance to beach sleeps 2/4 (2 bedrooms)

Villa Rosa is a romantic villa with stunning views over the Aegean Sea towards Skopelos and Evia. Comprising 2 double bedrooms with high sporades style ceilings, one with French doors to large side terrace with sea view, 2 shower rooms, open plan Living Room and Kitchen with traditional wood stove fireplace and French doors onto front terrace with sea view. Extensively refurbished and re-furnished with good quality furnishings to provide comfortable, romantic accommodation. Steps from the upper terraces lead to pretty terraced gardens providing plenty of space on different levels for sunbathing and dining all enjoying fabulous views. Situated on the lower slope of picturesque 'Old Village', on the lane down to Megalos Mourtias beach and within walking distance (uphill) to several wonderful tavernas and cafe bars. Old Village with its cobbled paths and flower filled courtyards and balconies offers endless photo and painting opportunities.

Beaches: Nearest beach (pebble) is 1.3 kms, approx. 15 mins scenic walk downhill. There are 2 good tavernas on the beach, one with sunbeds under the olive trees, and fabulous views across to Skopelos.

Alonissos has a varied coastline. There are numerous unspoilt beaches, mostly pebbles but a couple sandy, within 10 to 20 minutes drive of Villa Rosa, plus others further along the island. It is also possible to follow footpaths from the Old Village to the small coves around the south of the island. They are all different and all beautiful, with none of the development seen on other islands. A few have a good taverna for lunch by the sea. There are scenic walking trails leading to deserted coves backed by pine forest. From June to September little taxi boats leave Patiitiri to various beaches along the island. It is also possible to hire a small motorboat in Patitiri. As part of a Marine Park the sea is clean and crystal clear.

Travel: Charter flights from May to October to Skiathos. 5 minute taxi ride to harbour and Alonissos is then reached by Flying Cat or Hydrofoil taking approx. 1 hour 20 mins or by Express Ferry taking approx. 1 hour 45 mins. There are several crossings a day and all are bookable online in advance. The journey is very scenic, usually making a stop at Skopelos en-route and coastline and islets are visible all the way.

Alternative routes via Athens or Thessaloniki with plentiful daily flights all year round. Coaches run to ferry ports of Aghios Konstantinos or Volos and from these the hydrofoil or Flying Cat takes approximately 3 hours.

Also daily flights run from Athens to Skiathos all year round.

Guest will be met off the ferry on arrival in Alonissos and taken to the Villa.

Although off the beaten track, Alonissos is easy to reach.

Car hire is not essential but is a good way to explore the island.

Activities:

Alonissos offers fabulous walking opportunities with marked trails that take in fabulous vistas. There is a good walking guide book available on the island and also a walking club for those that prefer to walk with a guide.

There is a small yoga school and holistic massage center in the village, just along the lane from the house. Yoga can be booked on hourly basis or a whole week course. Treatments available include Swedish and Hot Stone Massage amongst others.

There is an Alexander Technique center which runs courses on certain dates during the summer.

Day sailing can be booked for sails to the Marine Park suitable for experienced sailors or non sailors.

Boat trips to Marine Park Islands leave from Patitiri and include swimming stops and lunch.

Dive center at Steni Vala.

Small motor boats can be hired in Patitiri to explore the many bays on the East coast. Mountain bikes can be hired in Patiitiri.

Skopelos is only 20 minutes away and makes a good day out.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Andrea & Andreas, Austria -18th June 2011

What a fantastic place !!

My husband and I spent two magnificent weeks at Villa Rosa. After a very warm welcome of Chris at the port of Patitiri,our hired car was standing 30 meters beside the Flying Dolphin and we could go to Villa Rosa immediately.The site of Villa Rosa is the best on the island. At the edge of the Old Village it is one of the few houses you can reach by car.The view to the sea is wonderful. There are three terraces, so you can choose, where you want to be in the sun or shade. Beautiful flowers everywhere and a lemon tree with delicious fruits. One day a greek man brought us fresh fruits from the plot below. The interior of the house is also perfect.It seems to be a mixture of greek and british style, good designed and very, very cosy. The sofa on the terrace was my favourite place in the evening to spend time before the sun went down behind the Chora. The kitchen is well equipped and you find there everything you need. It is so relaxing to sit at the terrace and look either down to the bright sea or to the Old Village with their nice houses.Megalos Mourtias is a 10 minutes walk or two minutes by car a pebble beach with two tavernas,we recommend the left one when you come down.With free beds in the shade of olive trees and the food at Ria’s is very good. One evening there was no electricity and we spent a romantic candle light dinner alone.Ria pampered us with a delicious dinner.Kokkinokastro: For us the best beach on the island ,only few people and heartbreaking sourroundings. Only a small palmcovered hut to get something to drink.Gialos Leftos: Our favourite place!Pebble beach, few people and the taverna of Eleonas has the best homemade food you can imagine. We stopped at Steni Vala for a good lunch and relaxed afterwards in the wonderful surrounding. A very nice place to go before dinner is the Sunset Bar between Patitiri and the Chora. There you can drink a sundowner and it is the best place to take photos of the sunsets. We liked to go up to Old Village in the evening and we liked the dinners at Astrofegia and the bars up there. There are so many hidden places, which you can explore day by day. Kalithea: Massages, reki, healing just 2 houses away from Villa Rosa. We loved the massages and other treatments,Bibi and Lee do a really good job!We actually fell in love with this beautiful island and Villa Rosa and we will come back very soon!

BEAUTIFUL VILLA ON A LOVELY ISLAND.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Villa Rosa for a week in July 2013 and would definitely recommend it for anyone thinking of coming to Alonissos. The villa has a wonderful location- walking distance from both the Old Town and our favourite beach, Megalos Mourtias. As you can see from the photos, the view from the terrace is absolutely stunning! We spent most of our time in the villa sitting outside and taking in the scenery, but inside is beautifully decorated and has everything you might need during your holiday. We have been coming to Alonissos for many years, but staying at Villa Rosa made this year a particularly special trip to remember. We would really recommend renting a car on Alonissos, as there is much to discover on the island and would advise any visitors to go to Astrofegia, a wonderful restaurant in the Old Town. We are still dreaming about that view....

LOVELY HOUSE WITH BEAUTIFUL VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
One of the best holidays we've had. We had 2 fantastic weeks at Villa Rosa. The house is really comfortable and light and bright with terraces for eating out, sunbathing. The views are amazing. Its really well placed, 20 mins to a great beach with 2 tavernas, 10 minutes up to the Old Town. Would definitely recommend it. Eve, the owner, has thought of everything, maps, books, dvds, the house is very well equipped. Eve was also very easy to make arrangements with and Chris and Steve who look after the house were very quick to sort out any problems

THE PERFECT PLACE TO RELAX AND UNWIND

  • 5 of 5
What can we say that hasn't already been said before. This is the most beautiful accommodation we have stayed in in Greece with regard to the decoration and the view. Everything in the villa has been thought through with great care, love and style. Eve and Jim have thought of everything to make the stay as comfortable as possible. The whole process of arranging the holiday was a joy as Eve is so lovely to deal with. Her love for Villa Rossa comes across and it is reflected in the villa itself. The information that was provided beforehand was pitched just right and Eve was very helpful with car and boat booking information. The contacts on the island, Chris and Steve just help to make the transition so smooth as they are really helpful. All in all a wonderful hoilday in a beautiful location on a gorgeous island. I recommend that you diet before you go as the food is some of the best we have ever eaten in Greece with an abundance of vegetables, salads, Alonissos goat, Alonissos wine............ The only down side was - it went too quickly. The best bit, sitting on the terrace on the first night and realising that this lovely, relaxing villa was ours for the next two weeks! Jo, Tom & Hannah.

A TREASURE!

  • 5 of 5
We can truly recommend this absolutely beautiful house on the lovely island of Alonissos. Villa Rosa has an amazing and peaceful atmosphere with its location, views and not least the interior. The house itself offers everything you need and could ask for when having a relaxing holiday. We spent a lot of time on the lovely terrace overlooking the hills and the sea. Reading, painting, just being... enjoying the scenery and feeling totally relaxed. The location is perfect with endless choice for those who enjoy walking/hiking, walking distance to the nearest beach, the charming Old Town, as well as to the main town of Patitiri. We recommend hiring a car to see more of the island, and to be able to choose between all beautiful beaches and chrystal clear water. We hope to be back soon again!

PERFECT PLACE ON A LOVELY ISLAND

  • 5 of 5
This is the perfect villa to enjoy the lovely island of Alonissos. The villa is beautifully furnished in a very simple style, with everything you need in a really peaceful location. The rooms are all comfortable and attractively furnished, but best of all is the terrace looking down the hillside to the sea, where we spent nearly all the time we were in the house. There is a table and chairs where you can eat a leisurely breakfast and plan your day. There are numerous quiet and unspoilt beaches nearby as well as great walking and sailing and other watersports. Or you can stroll through the lanes of the Old Town where there are some interesting and quirky shops, great views and some interesting buildings. Then it's back to the terrace where comfortable sofas, armchairs and sun loungers give you an ideal setting for reading, sipping your aperitif or just gazing at the sea. A ten-minute walk up the hill into the Old Town takes you to a wide selection of bars and restaurants ranging from quiet and traditional to lively, some with live music. All in all a perfect villa in an ideal location.
