The Poros Beach House is located in Poros, a coastal village that combines sea and mountain. The lush green environment and the blue sea are forming an incredibly beautiful landscape. Poros is a popular holiday resort. The mild climate assures a comfortable stay. The beautiful beaches are among the best on the island and are ideal for families and seniors. The Poros Beach House is a traditional house with two bedrooms (one air conditioned), a fully equipped kitchen and toilet with bath tube. It can comfortably accommodate four guests. A shady garden in the back is an ideal setting for lunch, while the front garden has views to the sea. The house is only 4 meters from the beach. The owner will treat you with genuine Greek hospitality, will offer you dinner with traditional delicacies and shows you all the 'local secrets' for a pleasant holiday on the island of Kefalonia.
Me and my wife stayed at this property for more than 3 weeks in September and we really got addicted to this beautiful place. It provides in everything you need for a relaxing holiday far away from the noisy tourism. From our breakfast table we overlooked the Ionian Sea just 20 yards in front of us. Beach, shops, swimming pool, restaurants, supermarkets: it is all there within a few steps away. So the first week we completely ran our desire to explore more off the Island and we stayed day after day at this cozy place without twiddling our thumbs. Above all there is always the sympathetic and helpful attendance of Ioanna. She provides you with all kind off recommendations and suggestions you need and we really felt us at home and at ease. We have the habit to never visit the same place for our summer holidays, but with this amazing place it might be different.
This was the second time my family and myself have stayed at this property, after our first stay in 2013 we fell in love with the place and booked the next years break almost immediately upon returning home,our first taste of Poros was 23 years ago and it hasn't changed that much in all that time.
it has a very laid back feel, a little slice of Greek life.
great local restaurants,bars,supermarkets and shops are a stroll away, the house is compact but with all the comforts you would need, the owner Joanna is a very warm hospitable lady who just wants to make your holiday as pleasurable as possible.
this house is a perfect base for exploring the island,a car is a must for exploring further afield but you could quite easily spend your days on the clean (not very busy) beach and have a real chill out,
for the price I don't think you could find such a property so close to the beach in such a great location.
Again I would not hesitate to recommend this property to friends and family
A fantastic location only across the road from Poros beach with small Tavernas either side that were so reasonably priced, we ate out all the time.
The pace of life, cleanliness, friendliness and climate make this a truly relaxing holiday and we all felt totally chilled out after just one week there.
Ioanna was the perfect hostess, available as required for local knowledge and made sure we had everything we needed.
We would definitely return for another holiday.
We stayed at this beautiful little house for two weeks in August 2013,My wife,Myself and our two sons (13 and 18 years old), the house was perfect for us, it is compact but everything we needed was there,a shaded garden to the rear and a patio to the front, the beach is literally ten steps from the house which is very clean and well looked after, the owner Ioanna lives in an adjoining house at the front and was very attentive to our needs, as another reviewer said not intrusive but always willing to help she cooked us a wonderful meal one evening and bought us local delicacies to try,there was a slight language barrier but she was very warm and hospitable, a genuine caring host.
the holiday was very relaxing, it was the second time we have stayed in poros and as soon as we arrived back home we knew we would return the next year (which we have already booked)
Poros itself is quiet but with quite a few decent restaurants to choose from and a couple of small supermarkets within walking distance.
we hired a car, which is a must to explore this beautiful island there is so much to see, we also hired a boat and spent a wonderful day on our own secluded beach,which was amazing, if you are looking for relaxation and stunning scenery Kefalonia is for you and Poros is the perfect base.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone in search of peace and tranquility at a very competitive price
A friend of mine and I stayed in this beautiful house for 10 days in August. We had a great time: Cefalonia is a wonderful island, impressive and spectacular, with beautiful beaches and clear water: However this excellent house was a great asset in our stay: very clean, very comfortable, well-equipped, it has everything you might need for a home-from-home experience.There 2 separate bedrooms (which we decided to make use of), consistently reliable WiFi, efficient air conditioning (even if we eventually switched it off as there was actually no need of it) and a wonderful patio with a table and chairs with direct view of the sea, which is only a few meters away. It was so nice to sit there, hear the sound of the waves and look at the sea.
The location itself is great. just a few meters from the sea, a nice beach only a couple of minutes'walk, many tavernas to choose from. Poros is fairly quiet but it has everything you might need. And from there you can easily visit all the other beautiful spots on the island.For us it was perfect, we could not have chosen better.
A special thank you to Ioanna, the owner. She was an excellent host, extremely helpul, she answered all our questions and provided very useful suggestions about things to do and places to visit. She was available throughout the holiday to provide assistance if we needed it, like a friend more than a host.
I would highly recommend this house and I hope to go back there soon!
I was lucky enough to spend 4 weeks here in June/July 2013. I could not have wanted any more from my Greek holiday.
The cottage is perfectly located - just a few steps from the beach (which has gorgeous clear water for swimming in) but with plenty of tavernas, cafes and shops an easy stroll away.
In spite of the central location, it is very quiet and peaceful, and the shady garden is the perfect spot to have breakfast.
Joanna the owner lives next door, and is a warm and lovely host, who can help with restaurant bookings and anything else you may require!
I fell in love with Poros, and with this little slice of Greek heaven, and hope to return again very soon.
Poros is a picturesque small town located in the municipal unit of Eleios-Pronnoi, some 40 km SE of Argostoli, 28 km SE of Sami and 12 km NE of Skala, in the south east of Cephalonia.
Poros is effectively divided into three parts. Poros port, with its couple of tavernas and bars, connects the island with Kyllini on the Peloponnese area of mainland Greece via regular year-round ferry service. During the summer months a ferry may connect Poros with Zakynthos and a couple of tourist caiques offer cruises to Ithaca and the Blue Caves of Zakynthos. The harbour is also home to the local fishing boats which supply the area with fresh fish.
Separated from Poros port by a small hillock lies the town beach, backed by a taverna-fringed square and main services: bank, chemist (pharmacy), doctor’s surgery, post office, police station and local shops. More tavernas and bars lie along the award-winning 'Blue Flag' beach, Aragia, separated from the centre of Poros by the Vohinas river.
The coastline facing Ithaca, is one of the last refuges of the endangered Mediterranean Monk Seal (Monachus monachus).
Just out of the Poros gorge a rough vehicular track leads to the Atros monastery, the oldest on Cephalonia, with impressive views across Poros. Further along is another track leading to the Mycenaean tomb of Tzanata.
