About Sofia Petris

A retired couple, Nick and Alexandra live year round in the first floor of the home. They lived many years in the United States and in 1997 they retired in their home country of Greece and built their ocean-front dream home.

Sofia Petris purchased this apartment in 1997

Why Sofia Petris chose Ahaia

The home is located in a small sea village that gives the illusion of an island. It has its own beautiful beach, bakery, small markets, butcher shop, church, and plenty of cafes and restaurants, even the fast train to the city. However, within 15 minutes driving distance, you can be in the city of Patras and all amenities that a large city has to offer. Also, the property is located close to the main highway making travel easy.

What makes this apartment unique

We built this home because of its location by the sea. It is within a few minutes walking distance from a public beach, and yet it feels very private with its own access to the water right off your door if you wanted. .

Ocean Front Home In Family-Friendly Village 15 Minutes From City Of Patras.

Thank you

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday!! We are a family of four: two adults and two little girls, 4 and 6 years old. Nikos, the owner, arranged to pick us from Patra coach station and drove us to the apartment.

We stayed in the first floor apartment and it was huge! You could tell that it was made for family to stay, beautiful furniture and plenty of appliances. The house itself is at one end of the village; there is no traffic and the sea is a stone's throw away...and that is for a 6 year old!! There is a lovely picturesque coastline to walk along and nice pebbly areas where people swim; we really enjoyed going to the main one, the water was crystal clear and we discovered how nice pebble beaches are; the girls were happy wearing their beach shoes and spending time looking for little sea shells and playing in the sea, while we were sipping our cool drinks on the sun loungers provided by the few cafe/bars. We did also make sand castles at a different beach with a few sandy parts without having to walk more than 10 minutes. The whole experience was great and authentically Greek, 90% of the people on the beach are Greeks who are local or spend their holidays there and they are polite, respectful and make you feel welcome. There are more than enough tavernas and bars to suit the young and the more distinguished of ages... but would definitely disappoint the Agia Nappa crowd, thankfully for us!!

Nikos and Alexandra are such a lovely couple, friendly and chatty, we felt like they were family. They are extremely accommodating and we enjoyed spending time with them. I would recommend this place unreservedly and I will definitely be back again.

Thank you again for making our summer holiday a very special one. See you soon.

Beautiful, waterfront home for a relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 and It took us just over 2 hours to get here from Athens airport. Owners, Nick and Alexandra, treated us like family. House is clean and right on the water with views of the mountains to the rear.

We enjoyed coffee on the veranda while watching the kids swim right in front of us. It is just a short walk to the main beach where you can sunbathe and eat at the many ocean front restaurants and cafes.

We took a couple of days trips to visit the nearby ruins of Delphi and Olympia as well as the winery at Ahaia Claus.

Overall, a great and relaxing family vacation well worth the trip. Will definitely be back and recommend to family and friends.
