Guestbook comments from the owner
"Appartement neuf et très propre dans une jolie propriété. Cadre superbe (oliveraies, vue mer et montagnes, piscine très agréable). Endroit très calme et tout a fait charmant. Parfait pour se reposer et idéalement situé à proximité d’une petite ville et de très belles plages de sable d’une propreté irréprochable et assez peu fréquentées. Les propriétaires, charmants et très discrets savent donner de bons conseils pour profiter au mieux de cette région superbe et encore totalement épargnée par le tourisme de masse. A conseiller!

We moved to Greece with our 3 kids in 2005. We have built a small tourist accommodation business and our family home, within a 2 acre olive grove facing the sea, to get 'back to our roots'.Living and working closer to the flora and forna of the Mediterranean in a wild and rugged environment, and offering our children an alternative experience.

After the adventures, mishaps and wonders of the initial couple of years, we are now settled into our seaside village life.

We take a pride in cultivating and caring for our 200 majestic olive trees. Pruning and shaping the form for optimum health.

The fruits are harvested by the whole family in late November and all the local groves are a whirl of activity. We bag up the olives and take them to the local press where we enjoy the lively banter with the other farmers. The cold press extraction produces a liquid gold extra virgin oil that is second to none!

Simon purchased this apartment in 2004

We have developed a love for this unspoilt corner of Europe and take great pleasure in hosting guests from all over the world. We intend to help facilitate you enjoying a great holiday in this truly wonderful area which has something to offer all ages.We live onsite and are available for any advise or recommendations. It is of the utmost importance that we provide our guests privacy and quiet in a safe and clean environment, so they have the possibility to enjoy a memorable holiday.

All our farming activities from: harvesting, feeding and maintaining our 200 olive trees, vegetable garden and fruit orchards incorporate organic and permaculture methods, helping in maintaing healthy soil and minimize water usage. All garden plants are endemic and selected to have minimal water requirements and are watered using a drip system, again conserving water wherever possible. Our chickens are free range and aid us in sharing the kitchen waste with our compost bin as well as providing enormous tasty eggs. As often as possible we use recycled materials for outside building projects ( greenhouses, pergolas, raised vegetable beds, walls, paths, animal shelters, tree houses etc) often combed from beaches when storms have delivered timbers. We have restored and converted a stone store room to form the master bedroom of one house using local methods, craftsmen and materials. Our swimming pool incorporates the most energy efficient filter system and liner. Thus enabling us to keep her filled with water even in winter and only having to refresh the water by a third instead of 100% every spring.

WUNDERSCHÖNE WOHNUNG

  • 5 of 5
Wir waren 10 Tage in dieser schönen Wohnung. Unser Sohn ist 18 Monate alt und für ihn war der Olivenbaumgarten perfekt. Er konnte die Hühner füttern, im Baumhaus spielen usw.
Ganz in der Nähe sind sehr schöne Strände, die man mit Kind sehr gut besuchen kann. Simon und Idi sind sehr lieb und konnten uns immer gute Tipps geben was man in der Umgebung schönes erleben kann.
Wir werden bestimmt wieder hin fahren und es unseren Freunden weiterempfehlen.

WONDERFUL WEEK

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week in apartment Shani. A perfect holiday. It has all you need to be extremely comfortable and so much more that we found it difficult to stir ourselves from the views and lovely pool to explore the local area. There's plenty to do and see around and about and people are very friendly in the villages and towns. It really deserves a far longer visit.
Our hosts were very knowledgeable, friendly and great company when we sought them out but totally non-intrusive. They cooked us a wonderful meal which we would highly recommend. We were encouraged to enjoy the fruit on the trees and can also recommend the homemade olive oil. This place was a treasure of a find and we would love to return one day.

APARTMENT SHANI

  • 5 of 5
Very friendly owner family and pieceful location. Lots of beautiful beaches suitable for small kids nearby. Car is essential. Nice small appartment without luxory, but all we needed for cooking, sleeping etc. Pool area was very nice and clean. Small fauna (mosquitos, worms, spiders etc.) was around and everywhere, but not more than you can expect at countryside normally. Dining area outside the apartment was very nice and provided shade. We ate always outside and enjoyd a lot surrounding well-cared garden, privacy and view to olive trees and sea. Thank you very much for the little extras!
