About the property

Villa in Steni Vala, Alonissos, Sporades Islands, Greece - 2 Mins Walk Through the Shady Olive Grove to a Secluded Beach

Numerous terraces throughout the gardens to relax on and enjoy the peaceful setting in the sun or shade of olive trees. Just 2 minutes walk through olive groves down to a beautiful secluded beach and the clear waters of the marine park. A 10 minute stroll along the beach and you are in the popular harbour of Steni Vala amidst the local fishing boats providing their daily catch to the excellent tavernas, bars and shops. In the opposite direction just 10 minutes away is the quaint harbour of Kalamakia where you can peacefully while away the hours and enjoy the excellent tavernas at the waters edge.

About Julie

I usually spend most of the year on Alonissos and so always try to meet guests on their arrival in Patitiri.

You will know it's me by the chocolate puppy at my side.

Why Julie chose Alonnisos

We were lucky enough to be able to buy what was for us the perfectly positioned plot of land on which to build our home on Alonissos.

The villa stands within a hillside olive grove full of the scent of Mediterranean herbs and flowers and is just a couple of minutes walk down to a secret beach and the beautiful Aegean Sea.

What makes this villa unique

Villa Nissi is positioned in a secluded hillside and is blessed panoramic views of the crystal clear waters below, blue skies overhead and green hillsides all around.

Just a few minutes walk and you can be in the pretty harbours of Kalamakia and Steni Vala both of which offer all that you hope to find from a simple and unspoilt way of Greek island life.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Many guests have returned to Villa Nissi several times over the past years having fallen in love with all that the villa, Steni Vala and Alonissos offers a perfect relaxing holiday.

Fantastic Villa in Breathtaking Location

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful and comfortable villa! Better equipped than our own home! Situated in a fantastic location overlooking the sea it has lovely views over the Aegean and the many little islands surrounding Alonissos. So peaceful watching the sun rise and set from the bedroom balcony and then lying back on the sunbeds after dark to admire the myriad of stars. The villa is surrounded by amazing gardens set on several levels with lots of terraces equipped with loungers, a Barbecue and plenty of shade from the variety of trees.

The villa is in an excellent location with good access by car to many of the island's beaches, one of which is Chrissi Milia which is a beautiful shallow sandy beach, perfect for children. (Nice taverna and bar!) There is a good selection of tavernas within a couple of minutes drive or a ten minute walk. (If you plan to walk bring a good torch) Lovely welcome in fridge - wine and super home-made apricot jam! Thank you Julie - for us the perfect holiday!

Great holiday

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful villa in a perfect setting. Everything needed for a relaxing holiday. A short walk through an olive grove to a small pebbly beach makes it the perfect villa.

A wonderful villa in a calm and beautiful location with far reaching views

  • 5 of 5

We have recently spent two weeks at Villa Nissi. Everything about it was quite perfect, from the thoughtful design of the villa which was spacious, airy and tastefully decorated, to the quiet little bay reached through an old olive grove down to the pebbly beach which was often deserted. The sea is crystal clear and the weather beautiful. It felt like a paradise, and we look forward to returning.

A stoning view

  • 4 of 5

The house has an amazing view to the sea and is located near taverns in graphic ports (Kalamaki, Steni Vala). Also has large rooms and a continuously sweet wind blow. I would like to thanks Julie for her hospitality. The services can be improved with a cleaning policy on demand. I think is worth to stay more than a week.
