STONE COTTAGE WITH PRIVATE POOL AND SEA VIEWS ON THE UNSPOILT ISLAND OF EVIA

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

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.

SEMELE, A PROUD MOTHER OF GREECE...

  • 5 of 5
Ares has created a real Greek paradise here. His dedication and hard work shine through in this stunning property. I have previously stayed at his other property Villa Arethousa which is close by and is equally excellent. The cottage has a certain romantic charm however which I found inescapable. Everything is well considered and a great deal of thought, love and care has been put into building this traditional cottage. The swimming pool (with a soon to be completed natural filter system) is a highlight with stunning views of the mountains, sea and surrounding countryside.

The local area is stunning with a very good local Taverna two miles away where nothing is too much trouble and guests are well looked after by the family who runs it. One can get a real sense of community and visitors are always made to feel welcome.

The property was well presented and very clean when we arrived and there are plenty of maps, guidebooks and general information to help guests settle in. I can not recommend this property highly enough and will certainly go back next year. I strongly recommend hiring a car so you can properly explore the local area
