Stone Cottage Kos
We enjoyed this place for it suited our needs perfectly. We know Greece
well but had never visited Kos. The purpose of our trip was to see the
archaeology and do some walking. The best of the former is in the east
and the best of the latter is in the west. Stone Cottage is ideally
situated between the two and is but a short drive to the starting points
of both. The location has the added bonus of having some Caribbean
quality beaches ten minutes to the south and some pine clad mountains
ten minutes to the north. There is no shortage of things to do from this
base. We particularly enjoyed early evening strolls around the coastal
salt lake (which can be seen from the cottage) bird book in hand.
The cottage itself, although old, has been comprehensively modernised.
It has a pleasant garden, surrounded by farm fields on all sides, with
some good spots for sitting out reading or having evening retsina
overlooking the channel to Turkey a couple of kilometres away. It is but
a short step from kitchen to outside picnic benches and the impressive
bbq for eating al fresco. The kitchen and the bathroom are well
equipped. Everything we used worked fine but we did not try the
television/DVD or the a/c. The wifi sometimes involved a short
walkabout. We prepared our own meals (well stocked supermarkets and an
excellent bakery in the nearby village) but could see many restaurant
opportunities, especially along the coast, a short drive away.
Last but not least the owners live in a house located in the field
(vineyard) in front of the cottage. They are helpful and knowledgeable,
keen for you to enjoy the cottage, its facilities and your holiday.
The Stone Cottage is situated 10 minutes from Kos Town ( by car) in the countryside area of Messaria and 2km from the nearest resort of Tigaki. Tigaki has one of the best sandy beaches on the island and offers a wide range of water sports.
There are two large supermarkets within walking distance. There is a bus service which passes from the bottom of the road to Kos Town to see the many historical sites. Or you can go in the other direction to the other villages on the island.
The view from the front of the property is looking over the owner's vineyard to the Aegean Sea with Kalymnos, Pserimos and Turkey in the distance. The view to the back is of Mount Dikeos (the only mountain on the island) which is 830 m.
There is an abundance of grapes and figs available from July onwards in the garden.
The owner's lives 80 metres from the property and are available for any help you may need.
