About Kiki Apostolidis
I am Kiki and I was born in Koroni, I spent all my childhood years in this area. As a child I used to study and look at the beautiful blue sea as a way to travel around the world. After graduating from high school I went to the USA at Temple University in Philadelphia to get an education. It was also the place where I met my husband. In the 2000 my husband and my children decided to built this log house to bond them together. A lot of personal work and care has been taken to every part of the house. From the hand made roof, floor, house walls to the hand made sofa and chairs. Almost everything is custom made and with a lot of love. We always appreciate having guests over at our home. Greek hospitality is not just a saying where I come from, its an action of heart.
Kiki Apostolidis purchased this Villa in 1949
Why Kiki Apostolidis chose Koroni
The land has been given from my father as my wedding gift. It used to be a land of agriculture. A place where I spent a lot of my childhood years. The sea is right next to the property. Just sitting on the balcony and watching at the sea is enough to re-energize my being.
What makes this Villa unique
The house is surrounded by a lovely garden that is constantly been taken care by my husband. A variety of trees and plants are placed around the land. The beach is right at the end of the property. Just a few steps away and you can feel the sand between your feet. Whether its winter or summer, a walk on the beach can clean up the mind clutter and open new possibilities. The sea is amazingly clean and a swim will revitalize you.

We spent one week at Villa Thalassina and enjoyed every single minute there. Great place, nice and well equipped house and friendly hosts. What more can you ask for? We will definitely be back next year. Thank you so much Kiki for the chance to stay in your house!
Amazing house on the beach
We have just returned from a 10-day stay at this amazing property and I am sure we will be daydreaming about it for months... Our hosts Kiki and Vasili were most welcoming and gracious and have made sure that we are well informed about the region and all the local amenities.
It is the only house on the sandy tranquil Memi beach but there is also lots to do and see in the area, should one feel adventurous. The house itself is spacious and very modern yet maintains the traditional beach hut feel with unique furniture pieces hand made by Vasili. It truly became home away from home for us.
The town of Koroni is mere 5 minutes away by car and we had great sea food in restaurants recommended by our hosts. The local supermarket is about 4 minutes away and is good size and is open 7 days p/w.
We are truly grateful to Kiki and Vasili for their hospitality and making us feel welcome in their beautiful home.
We had a great time. The house is spacious and comfortable. The view is breathtaking. What a luxury to walk up the beach through the garden. Kiki and her husband ware very friendly and welcoming. We have received many tips for outings and good food in the arena. Thanks a lot Kiki!
