Guestbook comments from the manager

- Arriving in the dark, nothing can prepare you for the stunning view that

greets you when you wake up in the morning. It is literally breathtaking. I

have never been in a holiday house so immaculately furnished and equipped.

And the pool was even more stunning than it looks in the photographs. Dinah Hall (UK)

-When we walked into the villa for the first time, all 10 of us were

overwhelmed with the beauty of the location. We were so content with

the villa and the view that we didn't want to leave. We had to force

ourselves to leave for excursions to the surrounding islands and were

very anxious to get back every day and sit by the pool.From the refrigerator stocked with food, a

delicious dinner the first night, toiletries in the bathrooms, beach

towels, and a sparkling clean villa and pool. We could not have asked

for better accommodations.Jo Ann Elliott(KANSAS- USA)

-We had an exceptionally wonderful stay in a perfect villa which was like

paradise (Micheal Cooper-UK)

Welcome in Paradise!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week vacation to Villa Thalia.

It was all perfect, beginning with the warm welcome of Vicky, the perfect hostess always available and smiling.

The villa is well maintained and well equipped with everything. Vicky then got us to find a refrigerator with wine, fruit, pancake, milk, and all that could serve for the next day's breakfast. Rooms are basic but finely furnished.

The villa is spread over three floors:

ground floor with access to the pool and two bedrooms, two bathrooms kitchen, laundry and gym space.

First floor living room with two sofas, toilet, fully equipped kitchen and breathtaking views

Second floor with three bedrooms and two bathrooms and terraces with spectacular views.

A vacation in paradise !!

Destination... Heaven

  • 5 of 5


The location and the villa are like paradise. The place looks like the houses you see in Hollywood movies. The view is amazing.

The interior of the villa is in minimal style and is equipped with everything you might need for your stay. Bedrooms En suite are spacious and all have a crazy view.

The gorgeous infinity pool and the view are just fantastic.

The owner Vicky make you feel at home in their family house. She was very warm, friendly and helpful all the time.

Location requires a car to move around. Area has very nice beaches and you can take a small boat across to the island of Spetses which is only takes 10 minutes.

I highly recommend this place. It is 100% sure that you will love it.

Thanks Vicky for the wonderful hospitality and we hope we can arrange to be back as soon as possible.

Beautiful, clean villa with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 was lucky enough to stay in this beautiful villa in September 2016. Having been here in 2006, I knew what to expect and bragged about how wonderful it was. The rest of the family was not disappointed!

As in 2006, the villa is fully equipped, beautiful, clean and the views are amazing. Vicky has put so much thought into how to make this villa comfortable and enjoyable. Every detail is perfect. She also helped us find a sailboat rental. I would highly recommend you do this because it was well worth the money and Akis the captain was a delight.

Port Heli is a great place to stay and it is easy to get to Hydra, Spetses, Epidavros and Napflio. You should visit these towns. Also, there is a great restaurant in Porto Heli called Paradise that is near the center of town. The food is amazing. It was one of our best meals.

Thank you Vicky for an amazing week at your villa. My 90 year old father now has memories that he will never forget as well as the rest of the family.

Fantastic stay in beautiful villa&perfect welcome

  • 5 of 5

We have spent a fantastic week in Villa Thalia! From the moment we arrived, we were convinced this was a great choice. Our host Vicky gave us a charming welcome and had prepared some delicious food which was just what we needed as the kids were hungry from the drive. The house is everything the pictures promise, and more! Beautiful, great taste, very well maintained, cosy and the pool and view are just fantastic. Vicky helped us with all our small requests during the stay, gave us recommendations and generally just made us feel welcome and at ease. The spices in the garden, the outdoor kitchen, the air conditioning, all the equipment in the house contributed to make this a fabulous stay. We will be sure to come back!

Porto Cheli is set in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Surrounded by rolling pine clad hills, the village is situated on a vast bay, providing one of the safest natural harbours in Greece, which today has been transformed into a miniature cosmopolitan port without having lost its traditional charm. It is also a paradise for water sport enthusiasts. With 18 miles of beaches & coves, there is always somewhere new to go for a swim or explore by boat. The mild climate, because of its 350 days of sunshine, the unforgettable sunsets, and the

innumerable cultural activities, ensure that Porto Cheli is a popular holiday resort throughout the year. The lovely village centre offers a wide variety of shops, tavernas, restaurants, banks, cinema & newspaper kiosks. Information on car, boat & motorbike rentals, excursions by boat to Hydra, Spetses, Poros or Monemvassia or by bus to Epidavros, Nafplion & Mycenae is available at the Tourist Offices.

Ski: Water-skiing and other water sports are available at most of the coastal resorts.
