Restored Stone House In Tranquil Greek Village 2 Km from the Sea.
Annousa’s House is a stone-built village house full of character and history. The large front balcony looks westwards over the sea, which lies just 2 km down from the house's location in the peaceful mountainside village of Kallirahi on the island of Thasos. At the back, a part-shaded courtyard provides an outdoor living area, complete with old oven which can be used for barbecues.
Four well-appointed bedrooms (two with en suite bathroom), three bathrooms and the huge open and airy living room with fully equipped kitchen and three different seating areas make Annousa’s House the ideal holiday home for a large family, two families or a group of friends who don't want to feel on top of one another.
Enjoy a glass of wine on the balcony and absorb some of the peace and beauty around you. The view encompasses the sunset over the seascape as the sun drops behind the distant mountains of the mainland to the west. To the left, the steep slope of Petrolaki refreshes your senses with a riot of greens from olive trees, kedros oak, overrun vines and wild herbs.
The courtyard at the back of the house provides more space to relax in. It catches the morning sun. The large dining table outside is shaded under a pergola, but there is room too for sunbathers to soak up some sun! The old oven can be used for barbecues.
Indoors, two fire-places are the focus of separate seating areas in the huge living area, while the indoors dining table doubles as a games table. Cards, chess, draughts and backgammon are provided, as are the Wi-Fi connection and cable television. The kitchen takes up the fourth corner and ensures the cook(s) don't lose out on the fun. The kitchen has a full-size dish washer so no one is left with all the dirty plates.
We also provide masks and flippers so that you can enjoy some snorkelling and perhaps catch sight of (or catch!) a lurking octopus or two. (Tip: Look for the little stone wall they build around their homes under the rocks.)
In neighbouring villages you can find a riding stables and mountain-bikes for rent. Archaeological sites abound; walk up to the ancient theatre in Limenas (Thasos Town) and then continue up past the Byzantine fortress to the ancient 'acropoli' of Thasos, once sheathed in gold (mined locally) according to ancient reports.
