About Makis and Helene
We are a family of four. I am working in the oil industry and my wife is a foreign language teacher. We have lived extensively around Europe and the US as expat. We love travelling and meeting new cultures. We are now settled back in Greece for its sun, the sea, its history, all its natural beauty and the cultural heritage. We often travel far and wide to mix and mingle with other people and live the local life. We offer our guests the same oportunity.
Why Makis and Helene chose Amfilochia
Amfilochia is Greece as it was before the tourist rush. This property, being my wife's birthplace, has been preserved to its original beauty and minimum intervention to its architecture. So if you are seeking for a quiet place in the sun to enjoy holidays with firends and family, away from the tourist hotspots, we beleive our property is a serious and unique canditate. Try us!

Alles problemlos, es ist ein altes Haus aber alles da was man braucht
7 Wochen Auszeit in Griechenland
Es ist ein altes Haus, die Dielen knarren und keine Tür schließt richtig aber damit kann man leben.Wir waren 7 Wochen hier und es hat uns an nichts gefehlt, wenn es doch ein Problem gab hat sich der Vermieter sofort darum gekümmert.
Die Zentrum nahe Lage ist optimal und wenn man mobil ist kann man sich in der Umgebung viel ansehen.Wir haben im Golf mehrere Wasserschildkröten gesehen, mit viel Glück auch aus der Entfernung von der Terrasse aus.Es gibt einige herumlaufende Katzen wovon sich eine besonders wohl bei uns fühlte und uns Täglich besuchte und wir viel Freude mit Ihr hatten.
Fazit wir würden dieses Haus wieder mieten.

The little house has everything you need for a nice holiday. The Patio was perfect for breakfast outside early in the morning, or for dinner later in the evening. The neighbours were friendly and the beach, harbour, shops and restaurants are within walking distance. Most of all, the air conditioning works well and the house cools off real quick.
(just one thing ... adding a hairdryer would be nice)
It was a real pleasure to welcome the Hagen family as our guests. We had excellent communication and everything went smoothly, as a vacation rental should be. We certainly recommend Marc and his family to other fellow hosts.
The comment about the missing hair dryer is noted. In fact there is one in the wooden closet 2nd bedroom, but I thing you are right. We shall have a new one in the bathroom.
Live the relaxed local life among friendly people away from the tourist hot spots. Excellent sea food, beaches with easy reach, near a nature marine reserve. A canoe is available for our guests to use in the sea.
The property consists of fully equipped house with large established garden and with easy access to beach and town centre. It includes an A/C unit for the hot and cold days. The house includes two bedrooms with double beds each, a livingroom with two sofas, 32'' flat screen TV and open fireplace. One of the sofas opens to a double bed. The kitchen is fully equipped with fridge, oven, kettle, plates, cups, pots and pans.There is a WC/shower room and a store room with a washing machine.
In the garden there are a number of trees shrubs and bushes. You will find an olive tree (tip:have your breakfast or lunch under the olive tree), lemon tree always full of lemons for you to squeeze and enjoy, almond, tangerine, pear, nectarine, medlar and orange trees.
Nearby there is a NATURA waterland reserve and several lakes.
Amfilochia is a good starting point to explore Ionic islands like Corfu, Ithaca, Kefalonia, Lefkas, as well as the west coast of Greece with its numerous resorts like Paleros, Preveza, Parga, Sivota and Amfipolis. While staying there you must taste the local seafood. All local fisheries are very tasty due to its special phytoplancton. Especially local shrim and seabass are a delicacy.
The bay is mostly calm and with the right equipment is ideal for canoeing and sailing all around it.
For more privacy there are beaches a short drive around. The surrounding hills offer a good oportunity for hiking. Guests will be provided with detailed description of the house operation, WiFi security code, a town description, emergency numbers as well tips of where to go and what to do.
