About Alexis Averoff

I have spent my childhood years in Paris, France. I moved in Athens, Greece as a teenager and later on, in 2005, I have decided to move to the island of Evia, take over the property of my grandparents and restore it in a way that it doesn't lose its authenticity and character. I will be more than happy to welcome you in our special family estate.

Alexis Averoff purchased this villa in 1833

Why Alexis Averoff chose Evia

The Villa Averoff, a historic estate, was owned by the Averoff family since my ancestor Avgerinos Averoff, a nobleman from Northern Greece, bought the land in 1833, when the island of Evia was liberated from the Ottoman occupation. Today, the Villa Averoff, has opened its gates to guests for a unique accommodation experience, in one of the two beautiful mansions of the estate: the Red House and the White House.

What makes this villa unique

Unique benefits of the property: An elegant and unpretentious estate that offers a unique experience to visitors, as it holds its character and atmosphere from the olden days. Combing simplicity with style, it can provide a relaxed and "away from it all" vacation time to its guests. Its magnificent garden and small animal farm makes it perfect for children.

Unique benefits of the area: Beautiful beaches and wonderful nature, rivers, canyons and unimaginable greenery, a natural environment that offers plenty of alternatives to visitors all year round.

An amazing discovery, so close to Athens!

  • 5 of 5

My family and friends have visited Villa Averoff in the summer of 2013. We were amazed by the beauty of North Evia, surely one of the most beautiful destinations in Greece that we have ever been. Unimaginable natural beauty for all tastes (forests, rivers and lakes, sandy beaches, crystal waters).

The location of the Villa is ideal: in the edge of a small village, surrounded by beautiful mountains and at the same time it is only 5km away from a wild sandy beach. Staying at Villa Averoff we had the chance to enjoy private, stylish and unforgettable vacations. We were amazed by the elegant historic houses, filled with antiquities that transferred us into another time. We were also amazed by the magnificent gardens and the beautiful swimming pool, that offered us moments of relaxation and tranquility -we had a hard time leaving the place!

The hospitality of the owner and staff was more than we could wish for. It has been overall a great choice which we would recommend without any reservation!

Perfect Hideaway for Academic Workshop 2012

  • 5 of 5

Thirteen physicians and scientists from our Research Divison spent five days in Villa Averoff for a scientific seminar. We had talks during the day, and went on outings to the beach in the evening, to the pictoresque sea-side town of Limni (30 minutes), or just relaxed by the clear water pool.

We were warmly welcomed by the owner of the property and his friendly crew. We had delicious home-cooked greek dinners in the stately dining room of the property. Clean, spacious rooms with artistic furniture. We look forward to come again.

Wonderful !

Few places provide the spirit and harmony one can find at Villa Averoff. Tucked away in a lush, green area by the sea in Northern Evia, it offered us a week of great hospitality, breathtakingly beautiful surroundings and immensely friendly people. My wife and I were highly impressed by how removed the region seemed to be from the turmoil of modern living, yet had so much to offer. The staff at the Villa was welcoming and helpful, the gardens and houses seemed to have been taken straight out of a history book and every nook and cranny was imbued with a sense of home. Much love has been put into the Villa and one can’t help but sense it. We certainly plan on returning one day...

Owner's Response: Indeed this one of the most aspects of this estate, this feeling of being transported to another era of old-fashioned peace...

The Villa Averoff is situated in the North of the island of Evia, 2 hours away from Athens by car (nowadays the island is linked to the mainland with a suspension bridge). Set in the outskirts of a village in the valley of the river Cereus, the Villa Averoff is surrounded by verdant mountains and close to a beach that is part of Greek Mythology. The region is of immense natural beauty that combines beautiful beaches, mountains, hills, rivers, olive groves and fertile valleys. First class holiday destination, there is something of interest to be seen at every turn in North Evia, where modern life thrives alongside splendidly preserved culture and tradition.

The region is a perfect for a vacation, offering both a relaxing and peaceful atmosphere and easy access to a wide range of sights and activities nearby.

NEW!!! A ferry connection every two days, 4km from the Villa Averoff, will bring you to the Sporades islands, ie. Skiathos, Skopelos and Alonissos.

Other Activities: trekking, art & craft workshops, yoga classes, Greek traditional dancing classes and other activities

Notes:
Service is very friendly. The owners, always available, are devoted to creating an environment that adds to your well being. In the evening it is possible to have a traditional Greek dinner and to enjoy the authentic flavours of Eubean cuisine, but make sure to ask for it in advance. The Villa Averoff is set on the outskirts of a village of Kirinthos, which provides all basic shopping needs and tavernas. You will find slightly more sophisticated shops, a post office, banks as well as a pharmacy and a health center in the town of Mandoudi, 5 minutes away by car. During summer the house is very cool due to the thickness of the walls.
