The villa is fully air-conditioned.

‘The main attraction of Evia is its fine scenery’, Baedeker's Greece 1894.
'The scenery of Evia is perhaps the most beautiful in Greece', Encyclopedia Britannica 11th Edition.
Evia, with a length of 175km, is the second largest Greek island, after Crete, but is relatively unspoilt by tourism. Package tourism has been discouraged by the absence of an airport, and so most tourism is domestic, consisting of weekending Athenians. The northern half of the island is very green and lush, the southern half more barren, beginning to resemble the Cycladic islands. The middle is dominated by the Mt Dirfys range (reaching 1750m), offering spectacular views and pleasant trekking in pine and chestnut forests. There are fine beaches on both the western side as well as the eastern side, which looks to the Aegean. The island offers many activities that can keep even the most adventurous busy.
