Politika, the village: This holiday cottage is located in Northern Evia, on the beach of Politika Village (Paralia Politikon) just one and half hour drive from Athens and 20 minutes from Chalkis. Politika that belongs to the municipality of Messapion, it is a graphic village in the Northern Evian Gulf, at the feet of the mountain Kantili. It abstains 22 km from Chalkis, and 8 km from Psahna capital of municipality Messapion.

The village is consisted of two parts, the main part, and the beach.

There are a lot of traditional tavernas and cafes around the square of the village, only 5 minutes drive from the cottage, where someone can enjoy greek 'meze', 'tsipouro', greek coffee, frape, and relax under the shadow of large 'platania' (trees). But also one can find mini markets, tobaco stores, press kiosks, bakeries, laundrettes, groceries and other essentials.

On the seaside part of the village, within a short walking distance from the cottage, there are a lot of fresh fish taverns, and local pub/restaurants. Also there is a nice pavement for walking, along the beach.

Evia, the island: Euboea (Evia) is the second largest Greek island in area and population, after Crete. The narrow Euripus Strait separates it from Boeotia in mainland Greece.

The island is linked to mainland by two bridges, one from Chalkis, the capital of the island, also accessible from Thebes, and the other which bypasses Chalkis and is more easily accessible from Athens.

The bridge that bypasses Chalkis is a new suspended bridge, The High Bridge.

Evia island offers great travelling opportunities. You can make a lot of excursions through mountain areas and discover lovely traditional villages, and also swim in the blue sea of Aegeo Pelagos, or calm waters of Euboic Sea. In Chalkida, the capital of the island, there are many night clubs and all over Euboea there are lovely restaurants and cafes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Alexandros,



I, and my family, would like to say you how wonderful was the time we had this summer in your nice cottage ! Everything was great, even the beach bar, that our kids found great, as they met there greek friends from Politika !



We would like also to ask you news from the little cat. When we arrived a mother and her little cat was there, but the mother disappeared and we took care of the little cat, which was really nice. We hope everything is ok.



And we would like to say you also that the gardenkeeper and Rania were very nice, and helpful with us.



Thanks for everything, and we hope we'll have the chance to come back !

Best regards,

Agnes

Excellent

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is an excellent place to spend a long period of time, as we did. It is spacious and has a large garden with many different sitting places under the shades of big trees. Being right on the beach is unique in this area. The gardener and his family helped us beyond what was required Only drawbacks are the stony beach (bring beach shoes!) and the noise on weekends of the nearby cafe and water sports club but even that it cannot be heard inside the house and in the garden. Suitable fir children and elderly people.

Paradise is closer than you think

  • 5 of 5
We've spent 2 weeks in august 2012 in this great "cottage". The spacious garden is not a overrated term. It is really spacious. It has even a basketball-field. Also: the garden is safe. An it looks/tastes good as well! The garden can be locked at the road-side and at the beach-side. This is really convenient because we were with 2 small children (age 2 and 5). No need to keep an eye on them all the time! Mom and dad could relax even more! There is a really nice gardener watering the plants every 2/3 days. Beach at 49 steps from the veranda. There's a wide choice of chairs and cushions: relaxing, laying, normal, swing couch, hammock and so on. We had difficulties choosing!
The brand new barbecue and provided charcoal were superb.

The second week we had family coming over. The house is big enough for 8 persons. it has some sort of seperate part for the guests. The 3! bathrooms are very convenient. And the outdoor-shower. Great.

Owner is very nice, even took some effort to preprovide soya-products in the fridge (even went shopping with us on the first day!) for our 2-year old who is alergic for milk and nuts. Also he bought a kiddy-bed for the occasion. He will pick you up somewhere halfway Athens and Politika and guide you you to the cottage. Problem with electricity solved in a few hours. Free wireless internet is great!

Place is clean, tidy an cosy. Kitchengear and kitchen itself are a bit outdated but has also an outdated dishwasher wich is nice! Washingmachine also very convenient with 2 kids.

One thing on the downside: During the day and during a substantial part of the night there is a beachclub 100 meters further along the coast that has loud music (also good icecream). It was not really annoying, but if you come here for total rest and quietness, it could be a turn down. Supermarket at 20 minutes drive.

There is also a canoe wich you can use on the water. Even found a slide somewhere for the kids.

Paradise is closer than you think. It is really true.
Would really recommend this place and we will really return one day!

Greetings from the Netherlands.

Owner's Response: I am so please that you had a great time! Indeed the cottage can offer both relaxation and at the same time is close to restaurants and the main village. Someone can easily tour the island or even go for a journey to Delphi or Acropolis. We are constantly improving the cottage, this year we installed new flooring on the 1st floor and we have scheduled to do the same for kitchen. Regarding the nearby café maybe it was crowded due to high season. Actually it was my mistake as I failed to introduce Richard to the café owner who would have lowered the music as soon he was informed. Also there are smaller super markets on the village just 2 minutes driving.

cozy cottage at the beach

  • 5 of 5
This summer we stayed for 3 weeks in this nice Greek cottage. The cottage is original and cozy, the large garden surrounding the house is beautiful and offers both shadow and sun. You walk from the garden directly to the beach and into the clear sea, you have a private beach. A 5 minutes’ walk and you are at the small harbor where you will find lots of small restaurants. Starry nights and lots of privacy. The island itself is beautiful and trips to e.g. Delphi can be made. What more could you wish for?
The owner, is very hospitable and reliable, an excellent host!
We really enjoyed our stay and can recommend the cottage.

Owner's Response: Dear Laura and Richard.
Thank you for your review. As owners we try our best to keep the original cottage style intact and at the same time to provide all the required facilities. Every year we make constant changes in an effort to make our guests’ stay more comfortable.
I am indeed pleased to hear your nice comments giving us the power to continue our efforts. We keep the price as reasonable and affordable as possible, for families to be able to enjoy their summer holidays in a nice calm environment; we believe that summer holidays is a necessity for everyone!
Hopefully some other guests have already pre-booked their 2013 holidays, which will assist us to offer the same kind -or even better- hospitality. Besides the Greek word filoxenia (=friendly with visitors) can not be translated in any other language.

Euboea (Evia) is the second largest Greek island in area and population, after Crete. The narrow Euripus Strait separates it from Boeotia in mainland Greece. In general outline it is a long and narrow, seahorse-shaped island; it is about 150 kilometres (93 mi) long, and varies in breadth from 50 kilometres (31 mi) to 6 kilometres (3.7 mi). Its general direction is from northwest to southeast, and it is traversed throughout its length by a mountain range, which forms part of the chain that boundsThessaly on the east, and is continued south of Euboea in the lofty islands of Andros, Tinos and Mykonos.

The island is linked to mainland by two bridges, one from Chalkis, the capital of the island, also accessible from Thebes, and the other which bypasses Chalkis and is more easily accessible from Athens.

The bridge that bypasses Chalkis is a new suspended bridge, The High Bridge.

Evia island offers great travelling opportunities. You can make a lot of excursions through mountain areas and discover lovely traditional villages, and also swim in the blue sea of Aegeo Pelagos, or calm waters of Euboic Sea.
