A family owned house exclusively used for rental. It can be rented alone or in combination with our property listed under “139 steps from the sea” which is very close to it. Built during the 60’s it has been recently refurbished but it still maintains its simple character. This house is a real retreat on the second biggest, yet undiscovered, Greek island of Evia. It is 150 km from Athens( by car + ferry boat) or 210 km (by car, crossing the Chalkis bridge) .It is situated on the slope of a small hill, it is surrounded by almond, fig and olive trees and has a wonderful view from its 40 sq.m. balcony. It is 50 meters away from the sea. There are no discos, restaurants or coffee shops around, the beach is sandy and very quiet. It is 13 km away from Aidipsos, a famous spa city known from antiquity. During your stay, you can visit the Thermae Sylla Spa considered by Conde Nast Traveller England as one of the top Medical Spas in the World and try different types of treatments. The village Gialtra, where you can find most of the basic shops , is on the top of the hill, within walking distance (10 to 15 minutes).
The house itself is 70 sq.m., it is furnished with taste but has no particular amenities. It is the ideal place for people who want to live in simplicity for some time and enjoy nature, hiking (the place is surrounded by forests), swimming (the sea is very safe, as it is a small gulf) or surfing. Since we have decided to opt for an alternative way of life during our vacations, there is no television, but there is internet connection for you to stay -if you choose to do so- in contact with civilization.. A car is necessary! The house is composed of a living room with view to the gulf, a small equipped kitchen , a bathroom with a shower and a bedroom with two beds. The living room has a fire place, a pull -out sofa bed plus one bed. There are screens at all the windows and a ventilator in the bedroom.
There is also a shady back porch where you can take your breakfast.

I have traveled a lot for business and pleasure and I am delighted to offer hospitality to people that have the natural curiosity and drive to discover new places
Ralou purchased this house in 1978
A very simple and functional house in a secluded area , away from tourist attractions.
Immediate access to the sea, to local fruit and vegetable markets to a simple and relaxing way of life
Un cadre vraiment agréable, un accueil chaleureux, un lieu empreint d'authenticité loin du tourisme de masse. Vacances très reposantes dans un endroit de valeurs préservées par les habitants. Une vue superbe sur la baie dans une maison toute en simplicité.
Ein traumhafter Blick von der Terrasse auf die kleine Bucht mit dem besten, wenn auch bei "Flut" schmalem Sandstrand der Gegend. Trotz umliegender Häuser am Hang ist die Gegend wirklich ruhig und sehr grün!
Die Ausstattung des Hauses ist gut, die der Küche für ein Ferienhaus total ausreichend. Mückennetze und ein guter Durchzug bei wärmeren Nächten erleichtern den Aufenthalt.
Unsere Vermieterin Ralou war sehr, sehr zuvorkommend, mit Tipps bei der Hand und bei Wünschen auch per sms sofort ansprechbar (So hat sie beispielsweise innerhalb zweier Tage neue Matratzen besorgt!).
Ein empfehlenswertes Ziel in einer zumindest für uns noch unbekannten Ecke Griechenlands!
