About the property

Very peaceful near the local town

Villa Maria is an authentic large Greek house built of stone. The house is located around a courtyard with exotic tall trees and has a private swimming pool with a separate childrens pool, a pond and a separate BBQ area in the corner of the garden. This house is 200 years old and was recently very tastefully renovated. The property is walled so that life is lived on the interior of this house.

The house as a staircase on the other side in the garden which takes you to a separate studio.

The garden is beautiful, almost a small paradise. There are lounge chairs and parasols

Food is mostly prepared on the BBQ. The BBQ space has a large covered seating area where you can all enjoy a meal together.

Fantastic house

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house and the pool. It was all fantastic. The rooms are lovely and a good size, and the outside space is great too. The kitchen has everything you could need. We had a perfect week's holiday here. We were 4 adults. Paulo and Vaggelis were really friendly and always on hand if we needed anything. Would definitely recommend staying here. You won't be disappointed.

This house suited us perfectly

  • 5 of 5

6 of us (2 families with 6 year olds) stayed here for a week. We found the house and garden excellent. The conversion of this old house into a holiday let has been done extremely well and the garden, where we spent almost our whole week is a real gem. The trees all round the pool provide shade when you need it and the huge table shade meant we didn't eat a meal inside. We were trying to think of ways of improving the house and all we thought of were that the cicadas were a bit noisy sometimes. I would definitely recommend this house to others if you want an attractive house and garden in a very quiet, small village. Thanks for a great stay.

Sans aucun doute, une maison d'accueil confortable

  • 5 of 5

Je ne peux que conseiller fortement cette maison d'exception où tout a été pensé pour que le touriste s'y trouve bien. Grandes pièces aménagées avec goût, chambres avec lits confortables, extérieurs propres et finement décorés. Tout est pensé pour que les vacances soient un moment de repos. Le propriétaire, discret,est à vos petits soins dès que vous le sollicitez. Allez y sans crainte. C'est parfait !
