We are a family of 7 (Mom and Dad, plus 5 kids ages 13 down to 4) and this 4-bedroom home near Corinth on the Peloponnese Peninsula was a great place to spend 4 days exploring the area in December. You need a vehicle due to the more remoteness of this property, but it is not too far from stores and restaurants.
We highly recommend this property and Maria and her husband. They live in the 'basement' level of the home, so are available.
We based on choice of this property on location first (we wanted to be near Corinth to give us opportunities to go East or West from the Isthmus), then on amenities (beds, washer-dryer, outside space for kids, common room space, kitchen, parking).
The pictures provided and video of the home did it justice, providing us a great idea of what was offered, and helped us make the decision. (Previous reviews also were very helpful.) The house, rooms, and outside descriptions and images matched our expectations and what we saw on arrival.
After selecting the house, the owner/landlord, Maria, quickly establish contact with us, and maintained fantastic contact through our stay including detailed directions to her house, meeting us on arrival, and seeing us off as we departed. We could ask nothing more from her communication. She also provided bottled water, and basic groceries (milk, etc) when we arrived.
Since we used this as a base for lots of travel, we did not spend much time at the house, usually departing by 8am and returning after 6pm each day. The Washer/Dryer was critical for our clothes washing (we were on the road for a total of 14 days, with this the only W/D we had access to). The kitchen had everything we needed to fix breakfast and dinner when we were home. There are plenty of nearby grocery stores (short drive of 5km or so), and other local amenities (many were closed over the winter) we drove to as necessary.
This gave a good base to visit Athens, Ancient Olympia, Ancient Corinth, Nafplio, and several other locations in southern Greece (yes, we drove a lot!). Maria has maps and other materials available, as well as good wi-fi to do research on locations and if asked, she will provided some wonderful input on places to go (we went to Nafplio because she recommended it).
Overall, a great place to stay and was very comfortable for our large family. Everyone had a bed, with our 4 boys sharing two rooms, and our daughter in her own room, (Mom and Dad had a wonderful suite).
We have been very nicely received in the house by its owner. The house was perfectly furnished, comfortable and clean, and everything was done to make us at ease. Well situated to go and see Athens, Corinth, Mycenes, Epidaure and other splendours.
Most of all, the sea is pretty close, even on foot: no more than 20 minutes'walk.
Very pleasant, thus.
We have really appreciate the kindness of the owner and his family. The house was perfectly clean and Maria gave us a lot of interesting advice. We were surprised to discover that they were living in the same house just below and we had the strange feeling that the family gave us its main house. Another point is that you really need a car if you stay there : just one beach is a 15 minutes walk away and even for the daily bread, you have to take the car.
We enjoyed to visit Epidaurus, Corinth, Nafplio, Mycenes, Athen and an excellent restaurant in Nafplio called Alaloum, which was recommended by the owner.
A nice place to rest, thank you Maria !
Die Vermieterin kümmerte sich vor und während unseres Aufenthalts sehr herzlich um uns. Von Vorteil war, dass sie sehr gut Englisch spricht und so all unsere Fragen problemlos beantworten konnte. Sie fuhr mit uns auch am ersten Tag in der Umgebung des Hauses verschiedene Strände, Märkte und Tavernen an, um uns eine Orientierung und nützliche Tipps zu geben. Die Vermieter wohnen im Untergeschoss des Hauses, aber Zugänge und Gärten sind separat. Wir haben uns daher nie beeinträchtigt gefühlt, aber hatten immer sofort einen Ansprechpartner für Fragen. Die Abbilidungen und Beschreibungen in der Annonce entsprachen voll und ganz dem Objekt. In allen vier Schlafzimmern (zwei davon mit Klimaanlage) waren die Betten vorbereitet, sodass wir uns (5 Personen) nach eigenen Wünschen auf die Räume verteilen konnten. Sehr praktisch waren auch die drei Badezimmer im Haus. Auch die Küche ist sehr gut ausgestattet. Im Garten befindet sich ein Fußballtor, das unsere Jungs ausgiebig, wann immer wir zu Hause waren, nutzten. Auch die Lage des Hauses war für uns praktisch, denn wir unternahmen Ausflüge nach Korinth, Epidauros, Mykene, Nauplia und auch Athen. Wir können das Haus auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen.
