About the property

3 Bedrooms, Sleeps 7 Guests, Swimming Pool, Breathtaking View

Nafpaktos. Situated on the north shore of the Corinthian gulf, it is one of Greece's most naturally beautiful locations. The landscape combines both mountainous terrain covered in rich vegetation on the north side, and to the south, a long coastal shore boasting numerous amazing shallow-water beaches with turquoise-blue waters. As if this was not enough, the area is surrounded and bound by ancient history. The city of Nafpaktos itself has a long history leading back to before the ancient Peloponnesian wars, and its castle-fortress is one of the best preserved in Greece. A plethora of historical sites surround this area at every step, almost towards any direction. Only a few kilometers to the east, up in the mountains lie the ruins of the ancient temple of Delphi. The oracle that presided there in ancient times was considered the most important in all of classical Greek history, and visiting is a ''must'' even in modern times...

The villa itself is located on the edge of a hill overlooking the twinkling clear waters of the Corinthian bay. The city of Nafpaktos and the castle-fortress is a 10 minute drive away. Less than 5 minutes by car will get you to the beach, or if you are feeling sluggish, you may dip in the swimming pool, while simultaneously admiring at the sea from above. The owner of this brand new villa, an amateur carpenter and wood-working artist, has made sure that the villa is as modern as it can get in terms of amenities, facilities and infrastructure, while combining his artistic insight and classical touch to create a uniquely comfortable and stylish summer home.

Indoors the villa has everything that you might want. The ground floor boasts a spacious living room and study, joined with an extra large, more than fully equipped kitchen, eager to deal with any dinning idea that you may have. The whole villa is decorated with original artwork by the owners hands, hence colour and inspiration are things that you will never be missing. Exploring the upstairs you will find the three pristine bedrooms on the semi-floor and third floor, all of which have a astonishing panoramic view of the garden extending to the swimming pool, which seemingly pours into the crystal-blue sea below.

Finally, the outdoors is where this villa really shines. A large private Garden spreads out in front of the villa leading to the edge swimming pool, all of which overlook the twists and turns of the magnificent sea-shore landscape. Of course, outdoor dinning and lounging are more than encouraged by the ample patio space and inspired hand-crafted furniture.

A wonderful villa with character and finesse, situated in a exquisite location bursting with culture and natural beauty.

amazing place everything we expected

  • 5 of 5

We were warmly welcomed and we had a fantastic time, the place was just as described and the view was spectacular. The area is lovely and the people very friendly. We could not fault our hosts and the villa it was all we could have hoped for. Highly recommended.

A slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was outstanding. The villas is exactly as pictured, with the sole exception that it is just above a fairly busy road, although not nearly busy enough to distract from the views or wonderful villa. It is spacious, well resourced, wonderful hosts next door and a pool that gives breathtaking views. We spent every morning at Skaloma beach, 5 minutes away by car, quiet and with miraculously clear water, and then every afternoon swimming in that wonderful pool taking in the surrounding vistas. Very untouristy and quiet part of Greece, but good facilities and restaurants within a short drive. Don't go if you are looking for a typical Greek beach holiday. Do go if you are looking for Greece. We would return and soon we hope.

Owner's Response: Hello and thank you for your wonderfully descriptive and positive review. It is very much appreciated, and it will certainly be helpful to future guests. Most of all, we are delighted that you enjoyed your visit and stay at our villa! We are also happy that you appreciated the relatively untouched and authentic Greek countryside and culture of the area. Regrading the road, it was a bit busier this year compared to others (especially with large vehicles), as currently there are works being done in the area, so next year will be even quieter! It was a definite pleasure welcoming you and having you as guests, and we hope to hear from you again soon! Kind regards, Alex, Chris, Olga

The house was very beautiful - a perfect vista over the Corinthian Gulf, - and our stay was made better by our hosts staying next door to us, and being very responsive / welcoming. We enjoyed our stay very much. Thank you Chris and Olga!

Détente ensoleillée et splendide vue

  • 5 of 5

Pour nos premières vacances en Grèce en famille, nous avions choisi cette maison avec les photos et les commentaires. Nous étions 3 adultes et 2 enfants de 4 et 6 ans. Tout était comme nous l'avions espéré : une vue à couper le souffle du matin au soir dans chaque pièce de la maison, une piscine et un jardin entretenus avec beaucoup de soin, une décoration de très bon goût et un équipement très complet (serviette pour la piscine, le wifi, linge de maison, presse agrumes, cocotte totale). Un petit regret serait la musique car nous n'avons pas pu brancher notre prise Jack a la chaîne hifi (car trop grosse). Les prestations de la maison étaient à la hauteur de nos attentes et les propriétaires aux petits soins pour que nous passions le plus agréable séjour possible. Un peu loin d'Athènes peut être car nous avons du écourter le séjour pour passer une nuit à l'hôtel afin de ne pas louper notre vol le matin. En revanche, il y a beaucoup de très beaux sites à visiter depuis cette maison. Avec nos enfants, nous n'avons pas pu faire de grandes expéditions (sites a plus de 100km) mais la piscine, la plage et le petit village de naupacte pour la glace suffisaient largement. Attention les plages sont toutes en galets et les enfants même adultes ont intérêt à être chausser en conséquence. Pas de chateau de sable mais des petits poissons et oursin à observer avec un masque dans une eau limpide et a 27c°. Un très bon séjour dans cette maison et une belle découverte de la Grèce.

Almost at Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Everything was there as described,the reality was even more beautiful than the photos.

The property was very clean and very comfortable,there was everything you needed and even more.

The owners were very pleasant and helpful,were waiting for us with some oil and vine made by themselves.They also gave us enough information about the villa and activities nearby so we knew everything we had to.

Our most interesting trip was to Delphi,but near the bech there were nice restorans and good to swim.Really enjoyable holiday.

Beautiful villa, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely two-week holiday at Villa Nafpaktos in June, when we stayed there with our two small children (aged 4 and 1.5 years) and my parents. The villa itself is fantastically well equipped in a really beautiful setting – the views from the garden are stunning, and the outdoor space and pool are fantastic. The region itself is very unspoilt, with lots of lovely coastlines and tavernas to explore nearby. It’s about a 15-minute drive to Nafpaktos town. We thank the villa owners Christos and Olga for their wonderful hospitality, and also Alex for his help with the bookings, and would love to stay here again one day!
