SECLUDED VILLA WITH PRIVATE POOL ON THE UNSPOILT ISLAND OF EVIA

Evia Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, 1 WC, sleeps 6-8

Villa Arethousa is set in three acres in the lush central half of the Greek island of Evia. The secluded villa has three bedrooms and three bathrooms, a private 12x6m pool with hydro massage jets, and offers spectacular sea, sunset and mountain views. It features large patios and verandas, as well as an olive grove. It is highly accessible from Athens airport all year round and is only 800m from the nearest beach. Combining the crystal clear waters of the Evian gulf with the lush Mt Candili and its environs, it is an ideal place to get away from it all, whilst at the same time offering a convenient base for an activities-packed vacation. The villa is fully air-conditioned.

House and pool cleaning is provided, as is linen. Information about Evia, activities and the villa is provided and at least one of the owners is always available for assistance and advice.

‘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.

LIVING AS ZEUS IN MOUNT OLYMPUS

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 weeks in Areshouse! We had it all: sunshine, thunderstorms, rain, which caused some magnificant effects into our views. Whatever the weather was, the villa was always cosy and gave us the feeling of being home (a very luxurious home). At sunny days we had a swim, maybe cold but a really proper swim. The house has many English tourist guides and books, so you do not have to bring your own!

We experienced some smaller issues (internet, shower), but they were immediately and effectively fixed. Many tourist attractions are reachable within a 2-hours drive. We fellt in love in the island of Evia: is feels very authentic, the people are charming and helpful and nature is stunning. The tavernas nearby offer good Greek food, reasonably priced and served with a big smile.

We really want to thank Ares, the owner, to gave us the opportunity of enjoying his beautiful villa! Also thanks to Dimitri of taking care of the practical things. For us it was definitely a big 5* holiday in every way!

ONE OF THE BEST VILLAS EVER!

  • 5 of 5
This villa really is as good as it looks. It is spacious and very well equipped. Everything was very clean, including the good quality bed linen and towels. The villa is a few hundred metres down a good dirt track, off a quiet road between Nerotrivia and Dafni. The location is excellent, with superb views across the sea to the front, and to the mountains behind. There is hardly any traffic on the road, and much less on the track, so it was very quiet and peaceful. There is a long pebble beach at the bottom of the track, good for beach combing, and the water was very clean. The villa also has a large clean pool. The local village, Nerotrivia, is very small but has a baker, butcher and mini-market, although we tended to go to Politika a few kilometres further away, but with a lovely cake shop, two more bakers, and several tavernas at the beach (which again is pebbles. There are lots of good little Greek tavernas to eat at in North Evia - we didn't have a bad meal anywhere - although if you are in Chalkida and feel like a change, we had a really good Italian meal at In Bocca al Lupo (if I have the name right, anyway it's near the old bridge, right along the water front). Ares the owner of the villa was very helpful and prompt when we made our booking, and his associate Dimitris saw us to the villa, and was also very helpful. We only have good things to say - if you like Greece and you want a villa, Arethousa is excellent!

TOTAL RELAXATION

  • 5 of 5
Our family of two boys and ourselves stayed at Villa Semele during early August. The villa was stunning set on the edge of a mountain. The villa was beautiful inside being furnished with high quality furniture and fittings. The best and most comfortable bed I've ever slept in abroad. I can't think of anything we needed whilst we were there that the villa didn't have. There were the basics in the cupboard so you didn't have to buy things like herbs or pasta straight away. Ares the owner was so helpful and you truly felt nothing was too much trouble.
The island is very quiet and totally unspoilt. We bought all our vegetables and fruit directly from the road side. The best feta cheese I've ever tasted! The local taverna in the village was fantastic with their own meat and produce. Probably the best greek food we have had.Very friendly also as were all the locals on the island.
We did spend a lot of time at the villa it was like having your own house. The evenings were spent often sitting star gazing and listening to the silence! The boys loved the pool and we always had to have a late night dip. The nearby beach was often deserted and we saw wild dolphin swimming one afternoon.
We did a couple of trips into the mountains to explore but mostly just chilled and enjoyed our spectacular surroundings.
This is the perfect place if you want to get away from it all with beautiful surroundings.
I am sitting looking at the rain out of window wishing I was sitting on the verandah looking at the sea in Evia.

THE ULTIMATE CHILL OUT!

  • 5 of 5
The villa is beautiful, well equipped, with fantastic views of mountains and sea. The pool with hydrotherapy jets a real pleasure to use.
What makes this place so special is not only villa itself, but the friendliness of the local people, the excellent food in local tavernas as incredibly low prices, but above all Ares, who will do everything to make sure you enjoy your stay, even taking on our dodgy car hire company on our behalf!

The villa is beautifully clean, with a mid stay clean included. What was delightful was that there were so many staples left in the larder, we had no need to buy oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, rice, pasta, tea, coffee, etc, and we were escorted to a mini-market on the way to the villa, late at night, to find milk and bread for the morning.

The track down to the villa does take a bit of getting used to, it is probably good it was pitch dark when we first arrived, so we did not see the ruts until later! Hopefully the local council will eventually do something about it, I understand it is not for want of asking. Don't let this put you off, just part of local Greece!

Try Edipsos Thermal Spa for mezze, spa waters and massages, Nea Lampsakos for those Shirley Valentine moments watching the sun set over the water whilst being served great seafood, and Steni for a mountain village lunch - just watch out for the unmade up roads.

Or don't leave the villa at all, the temptation is just to lie back and enjoy the views!

VILLA ARETHOUSA

  • 5 of 5
Booking the villa was super easy and getting settled at the location was made fast and comfortable by the professional and friendly people in charge of the property. The location itself was excellent, with grand scenery in every direction and friendly little villages to get happily lost in day after day. The swimming pool was in constant use, too, and was both large enough for the whole party and in excellent condition.
The villa itself was in perfect condition, with bedrooms and bathrooms to spare and a perfectly fitted kitchen to be used at will. The opportunity to wash clothes and make use of the barbecue were welcome additions, too.
Getting around the villa by car was a bit of an adventure in itself, since the roads snaking through the mountains and villages were pretty narrow and tricky in places. The excellent location was well worth the effort, though, as the area around the villa was far more engaging and relaxing than any typical tourist location.
Our holiday was spent by the pool, in the streets of nearby villages and around the beaches and scenic routes dotting the island. The isolated location was perfect for our needs and the efficient yet friendly hosts made our stay as fun and easy as possible.

TRANQUILITY IN EVIA

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful property. It has everything you need to make your stay comfortable and at the same time spoils you with the superb views, the tranquility. Staying somewhere where you can hear one car a day go by is a luxury.
The house is beautiful, so many windows and such a magnificent view from every single one. From dawn till dusk you can watch the sun rise and set. From one side you have the mountains and from the other the sea. What more can you ask for except for time to return again and again.

Villa Arethousa is situated 2km from the village of Nerotrivia, and is a 15 minute drive from the charming beach of Dafni. The nearest (pebbly) beach is 800m away. Nerotrivia offers a small supermarket, a bakery and a taverna (which doubles as a butcher's). There are many activities on offer in the vicinity, including trekking on Mt Dirfys (1750m) and its gorge, trips to northern Evia with its lush unspoilt scenery (the best in Greece according to some observers) and numerous archaeological sites within easy reach. The capital of Evia, Halkida (or Chalkis), is only a 30 minute drive away, offering a charming waterfront and some of the best seafood and fish in all of Greece.
