Overview

Evia Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Secluded but only 90 minutes from Athens Airport and 700m from Nearest Beach

Villa Semele is a stone cottage with its own private pool (10x5m) set on a hillside overlooking the Euboean Gulf. It has been built with traditional materials such as stone and wood, and comfortably sleeps 4 in two bedrooms, each of which has its own bathroom. The cottage is fully air-conditioned and features a spacious terrace with spectacular views of the sea and mountains. Sunset views can be enjoyed all year round.

Villa Semele 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 700m 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.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome
  • suitable for elderly or infirm

Total peace and quiet - with glorious views

  • 5 of 5
There were two of us, so we had lots of space - the cottage can easily accommodate four people. We wanted peace and quiet, and we certainly got it. The cottage is quite isolated - there are a few houses dotted around, but one is hardly aware of them. It is surrounded by open country, with glorious views of the mountains and the sea, with the mainland beyond. The landscape is enchanting, constantly changing with the weather and time of day.
Internally the layout of the house is very simple and practical. The stone construction gives it a very safe and solid feel, and we appreciated the attention to detail in the fittings and furnishings. The kitchen is very well equipped. The bedrooms and living room all open out onto the terrace, which therefore becomes the focal point (in summer - perhaps in winter the open fireplace would serve this purpose). The terrace in turn overlooks the pool, which we used all the time because it was so convenient, although the delightful little beach is only a short way away. There is a lovely beach taverna with excellent fresh fish about 15 minutes' drive away.
The owner visited to make sure we were comfortable, and he could not have done more to ensure we had everything we needed.
There is a village with some basic shops and a very good taverna a short drive away; a few minutes further there is a bigger village with several grocers and other shops and a choice of restaurants.
A great plus is that, despite being so remote and on an island, it is easy to get to from Athens airport. A car is essential both to get there and to get around. However we also enjoyed some pleasant walks, and there are opportunities for really long walks for the more energetic.
A few random tips: there is no cash machine or filling station in the village, so best to arrive prepared.
I would certainly go back again to this truly delightful place, and very strongly recommend it.

Beautiful house in absolute silent nature

  • 5 of 5
The house is a real treasure, beautifully built with great interiors and a great view to the sea and hills.
The owner and stuff are absolutely nice and helpful.
If you are looking for silence and privacy that's one of the greatest places I have ever seen in Greece. We had a wonderful holiday!

Hidden paradise at Evia

  • 5 of 5
It took three years to build this house. Each brick was cut and placed by one man.
Result: a beautiful house in which each detail is perfect. After a few days you consider this house yours. And that is the perfect feeling to have when you enjoy your holidays.
Swimming pool or sea you can choose! Long evenings on the terrace drinking wine or ouzo. Looking at the sea and the fisherman.
So go there! We also will be back soon!

Sublime

  • 5 of 5
One sole reason for disquietude accompanied my summer sojourn at Semele: that the idyllic charm and glorious sceneries of Euboea had spoilt me irrevocably, and that all else would henceforth pale by comparison with such untrammelled aesthetic splendour. Notwithstanding that the notion of an unspoilt paradise may have become a cliché, it has seldom been more justified.

The cottage itself is both quaintly charming and possessed of all desirable comforts – including air-conditioning, without which my heat-addled mind would have been unable to appreciate all the surrounding beauties, and a natural swimming pool so inviting that we tested it within minutes of our 3 a.m. arrival – and is a testament to the owner's impeccable taste, dedication, care and perfectionism. Its carefully selected location affords absolutely breathtaking panoramic views of the sea, the adjacent valleys and the mountains beyond, as well as of stunning Mediterranean sunsets. In summer, the terrace becomes a focal point on which many evenings were spend drinking wine and watching the moon traverse and illuminate the bay below, under such a densely starlit sky that made me want to take up astronomy immediately. The cottage is also remarkably wind-resistant and the terrace thereby protected, as we found out on giving a very successful dinner party on the terrace during what might without excessive hyperbole be deemed a tornado. The location of the cottage is also ideally suited to exploring all the wonders that the island has to offer, from exquisite atmospheric tavernas and sea-food restaurants to beautiful virgin beaches. In fact, having spent the first few days driving to a different beach every day, we finally decided that the one 800m from the cottage exceeded them all – and swimming at dusk, watching the sun set and the moon then rise from the mirror-calm sea, remains for me one of those rare and enchanting moments that one always remembers for their utter perfection.

I really cannot recommend Semele highly enough, and greatly look forward to visiting it again.

All time favourite

  • 5 of 5
I had a perfect holiday at Villa Semele and could have wished for nothing more in aesthetics or comforts. Landscape views are breathtaking and the villa lives up to its surroundings in the charm of its exterior and interior. Inside the setup is pretty (lovely traditional wood furniture), very practical and will be particularly appreciated by cooking enthusiasts (spacious and well-equipped kitchen) - most of all I loved the outside dining space on the terrace with its exceptional views and great peace and privacy.

Last but not least, full marks also on cleanliness. So all in all Villa Semele is a unique place and I would love to come back for more.

An amazing location

  • 5 of 5
Villa Semele is located on a majestic hill side of Nerotrivia, Evia offering a 270 degree view to near by mountain tops and the Evoikos gulf.
We stayed there for 2 weekends during the winter season and were ever so sad to leave. The house is beautifully arranged with great attention to detail and natural materials all around. Athens airport is only about 1,5 hours away which is unbelievable! Strongly recommended for lovers of nature, careful aesthetics, candle-lit evenings, comfort and total privacy. There is no doubt we shall be re-visiting soon.
