UNFORGETTABLE WEEKS BETWEEN THE OLIVE TREES

  • 5 of 5
The slogan of Alilea Villas is "A way of life." Our family enjoyed and appreciated this way of life for two weeks. The villas are situated beautifully between olive gardens with a view on the North Evian Gulf. There are recling chairs and a large dining table outside. The garden is large enough to play games like badminton and football. Children can play with the toys that are available. The interior of our villa had a cozy atmosphere and everything we needed was available. During our stay, the villa was cleaned regurarly. The beach is very suitable for snorkeling and swimming. We could use the owners' beach chairs, water shoes and parasols.
The owners are very friendly and attentive. They are living near the sea at a short distance from the villas.

As we are walking enthusiasts, we enjoyed some beautiful walks in the vicinity of Politika, Nerotrivia and Dhafni. Politika has a couple of nice taverns where we enjoyed some fine dinners. Our favorites were Petria, located on the main road towards Nerotrivia, and Aphrodite, located on the beach boulevard.
There are a couple of small supermarkets in Politika, which provide almost everything one needs.

The location of Politika in Central Evia makes it perfect for exploring the island. We made day trips to Steni, Prokopi, Pili Bay, Chalkida, Eretria, Limni and Loutra. We also visited monasteries, archeological sites and Greek Orthodox churches.

Returning from our day trips felt like coming home, not least because of the excellent hosts, Manolis and Myrto. They were always pleased to help us out with anything from taking care of bee stings to tips on how to catch octopusses.

A VERY RELAXING HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time in this very nice, very clean, very comfortable house. The descriptions and pictures match what you'll meet. The houses are very comfortable and the air-conditioning is welcome in the very hot Greek summer.
The owners are extremely helpful, and their advice eg on restaurants or places to visit, well worth following.
The nearby beaches are pleasant, with clear waters, small pebbles. There are urchins, but if you bring along appropriate shoes they are not a reason to worry (and they're a good indicator of the waters' quality). The owners maintain a rockless, urchinless corridor to the sea anyway.
A perfect place for a relaxing, resting holiday.

Owner's Response: We are very pleased that your family enjoyed your stay with us and that our villa matched your expectations. Our aim is to offer high quality facilities and a relaxing atmosphere. A beautiful and calm environment next to the beach. It makes us very happy to know that we are succeeding in this.

PEACEFUL RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
The Alilea villas have every comfort, and are truly a home away from home. The kitchen was well equipped, and the upstairs bedrooms had comfortable beds, nice views, and lots of closet space. The peaceful setting in the middle of an olive grove makes for a restful stay. Theotokos beach is quite nearby, and Alilea provides a beach umbrella and beach towels on request.

A car rental is necessary here. The first night we had some difficulty finding the road back to the villa, but we called Myrto who assisted us in navigating the roads. Thereafter, we had no troubles at all.

There are many waterfront tavernas in Politka, the closest village to Alilea. Our favorite taverna, however, was called Petria, located on the main road of the village heading toward Dafni and Nerotrivia. If guests prefer an organized beach, Dafni is a short drive away.

I look forward to a future visit to Alilea!

WONDERFUL ALILEA

  • 5 of 5
An excellent property, very attractive building, well equipped,
could not have had a warmer or more helpful welcome. Stunning views and the birds and the flowers! Knew the beach was pebble,so did not mind. Good supermarkets, butchers and bakers and cake shop in Politikia. Local eateries not really geared for season ,so choice limited but still great food, totally fresh fish and pleasant hosts. Getting around Evvia means a lot of driving, but its still worthwhile. Rural greece at its best. Could not recommend it more highly

GREAT HIDEAWAY, COMFORTABLE VILLA'S, WARM WELCOME!

Great hideaway, comfortable villa's, warm welcome!
  • 5 of 5
We so much enjoyed the view from our terrace from the first morning breakfast (a must do!) until the last evening dinner. We stayed in the studio, but also there everything was available for a comfortable stay. 3km walk to the village for daily fresh bread. We liked the visit to Limni but we were especially enchanted by the beautiful nature of the island. Myrto, our host, was incredible friendly and provided us with lots of information about the island. One of the best places in Greece we have stayed.

UNDISCOVERED BUT WELL WORTHY OF DISCOVERY!

  • 5 of 5
We chose Alilea because we needed somewhere reasonably close to Athens Airport. Before we went I read a book by Sarah Wheeler which describes Evia as "Greece's Undiscovered Island". This was a bit of a worry, exacerbated by the urban sprawl which spread from the airport to within a few miles of Politika. The villas are 200 yards from the beach, and quite a few new houses are being built nearby; weekend houses for Athenians. The villas are beautifully constructed and really comfortable and well equipped. Each has a lawn, which is irrigated and lush green. Beyond is bare earth between the olive trees. We ate all our meals outside on the shaded verandah. There are some spectacular insects (which leave you alone) and some lovely birds.

Do take up Myrto's offer of breakfast on the first morning - it kept us going for 2 days. Myrto comes round every day, usually bringing a little present, such as olives, capers or shellfish. She's really committed to ensuring that you have a good time. Her English is really good. The beach is pebbly; there's no sand. Myrto clears a path through the pebbles so that you can get in and out easily. You're swimming in the North Evian Gulf. When there's no wind it's like a millpond, and even to a wimp like me, it felt warm at the end of May. There are lots of fishes to look at. Excellent swimming and snorkelling - but do take beach shoes to protect you from sea urchins.

The people in Politika are just... nice. They aren't used to foreigners - we didn't meet a single non-Greek in 12 days - and they're keen to help. In tavernas in the village and on Politika beach, two courses with wine works out at about £10 a head. The food, and the wines, especially the whites, are really good. Fish in tavernas is much pricier. Two oddities - telling you what they've got rather than giving you a menu, and the food arriving in any order as it's cooked. The taverna next to the butcher's in Nerotrivia is particularly good.

A mile out of Politika you start to see what a beautiful island Evia is. It's mountainous, and covered in lush green shrubs and trees. There's often a smell of pine, sometimes of thyme. In late May we'd missed most of the flowers, but not all. We particularly enjoyed our visits to Dafni (nice taverna, pronounced Aya) and Sarakiniko on the Aegean coast, where we had a long sandy beach to ourselves.

Take Jungle Formula as there are a few mozzies.

Alilea is a great place for a quiet, interesting holiday.

The villa is located only 200 meters from the beach on a majestic slope with wonderful views of the Evian Gulf and is surrounded by rich and beautiful nature.

The closest village is Politika which is 3km away. Politika is a traditional fishing village with a long pebbly beach. At Politika you can find many tavernas with fresh fish and seafood, ouzo-bars, restaurants and snack-bars that will satisfy every mood and taste. Politika has a Byzantine Monastery and a Medieval Tower. Water sports are also available at Politika.

Chalkida, which is the capital of Evia island, is 35 km from the villa. There you can find almost everything. It has shopping centers, great night life with clubs and bars, and many activities to do, like sailing, scuba diving, water skiing etc.
