This summer (and spring and autumn) house is a real retreat on the second biggest yet undiscovered greek island of Evia. It is 150 km from Athens( by car + ferry boat) or 210 km (by car, crossing the Chalkis bridge) .It is situated on the slope of a small hill, it is surrounded by pine trees and has a wonderful view. It is 80 meters away from the sea. There are no discos, restaurants or coffee shops around, the beach is sandy and very quiet. It is 13 km away from Edipsos, a famous spa city known from antiquity. During your stay, you can visit the Thermae Sylla Spa considered by Conde Nast Traveller England one of the top Medical Spas in the World and try different types of treatment. The village Gialtra, where you can find most of the basic shops plus a pharmacy, is on the top of the hill, within walking distance (10 to 15 minutes).
The house itself is 70 sq.m., it is furnished with taste but has no particular amenities. It is the ideal place for people who want to live for sometime in simplicity and enjoy nature, hiking (the place is surrounded by forests), swimming (the sea is very safe, as it is a small gulf) or surfing. Since thi is a property offering an alternative way of life during one's vacation, there is no television and land line but we would be please to offer you wi fi connection upon request , if you need to stay in contact with civilisation A car is necessary! The house is composed of a living room with two balconies and an open kitchen, and two bedrooms(one with a double and one with twin beds). There is one bathroom with shower box. There are screens at all the windows and ventillators in the bedrooms.

* The house can be rented in combination with our property '39 steps from the sea', which is 50 meters away
I have travelled a lot for business and leisure and I can appreciate genuine hospitality.I love people who have the natural curiosity to explore other countries and I would be pleased to offer them an opportunity to relax and enjoy themselves.
Ralou purchased this house in 1978
Roula and her husband were wonderfully helpful, meeting us off a late ferry on our arrival, and guiding us to their lovely holiday home. Because the shops were shut, they'd left us a selection of local delicacies and brought fresh bread for Sunday breakfast. Despite being in high season, the village and nearby beaches were wonderfully quiet, and Roula's recommendation of the taverna of Aristea a kilometre or so up the coast was highly appreciated; great food and hospitality. A thoroughly recommended stay
We have just come back from Roula's beautiful holiday home, 139 steps from the sea in Gialtra, Greece. Roula's welcome made us feel very special and our daughter Grace aged 6 fell in love with Roula instantaneously . The holiday home is even more lovely than the pictures on the website. The cove where the home is situated is idyllic and peaceful. The view from the balcony is absolutely superb.
We traveled in every direction around the area both up into the mountains where we found small family run tavernas with mouthwatering food and breathtaking views, and along the coast to find beautiful beaches with crystal clear water.
Roula had left a wonderful information pack written herself and books about Evia that gave us plenty of advice. One of the best nuggets of information was the best taverna close by, Aristea. We became regulars,with wonderful friendly service and great food.
We absolutely adored our holiday and we can't wait to go back next year. Something to look forward to through our cold wet winter! Thank you again Roula xxx
Zwei wundervoll ruhige Wochen konnten wir an diesem paradiesischen Ort verbringen.
Die Vermieterin Ralou hat uns schon Monate vor der Reise mit allen wichtigen Informationen zum Haus und der Umgebung versorgt. So stieg die Vorfreude von Monat zu Monat. Bei unserer Ankunft wurden wir sehr herzlich persönlich von ihr und ihrem Mann in Empfang genommen und mit dem Haus vertraut gemacht. Kulinarische Überraschungen standen überdies als Willkommensgeschenk bereit. Das sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtete Haus bot uns genug Platz und Komfort. Die von anderen Besuchern schon gelobte Aussicht von der Veranda ist in Wirklichkeit noch sensationeller als auf den Fotos. Man mus sich jeden Tag neu kneifen, um festzustellen, dass das wirklich alles echt ist. Früh morgens kommen die Fischerboote in den Naturhafen zurück, abends umkreisen Fledermäuse die gut beschattete Veranda.Sonnenauf- und Untergänge sorgen für wunderbare Stimmungen. Zudem kommen Hunde und Katzen aus der Nachbatschaft zu allen Zeiten vertrauensvoll zu Besuch und freuen sich über Streicheleinheiten und einen kleinen Imbiss. Ideal für Tierfreunde! Unliebsameren Besuch, vor allem von stechenden Insekten, halten die an allen Türen und Fenstern vorbildlich angebrachten engmaschingen Schutzgitter wirksam ab.
Wer gern ein bisschen planscht und schnorchelt kommt an der von Ralou empfohlenen Stelle der Bucht (bei der alten Mühle) voll auf seine Kosten. Vornehmlich Sandstrand mit steil abfallender Landkante sorgt für eindrucksvolle Fischsichtungen. Ganze Schwärme kleiner Fische umkreisen den Schnorchler, größere Exemplare schwimmen in kleineren Gruppen umher. In das Dorf Gialtra führt ein recht steiler, aber gut begehbarer Weg. Auf den ersten Blick recht unscheinbar, ermöglicht der Flecken doch jedem, der mit Muße und etwas Kontaktfreudigkeit agiert, liebenswerte Momente mit den höflichen und zurückhaltenden, aber doch sehr herzlichen Einwohnern.
Wir können Ralous Haus mit bestem Gewissen allen weiterempfehlen, die Entspannung und Ruhe abseits der üblichen Touristenpfade suchen. Für Ralous Betreuung und Vertrauen möchten wir uns an dieser Stelle noch einmal ganz herzlich bedanken!

Situated amidst tall pine trees, which are responsible for pleasant temperatures even on very hot days, on the slope of a hill, the house is the perfect place to relax and to recover from stress at work. Its front terrace affords a spectacular view over the bay with anchored fishing boats in the foreground, the sandy beach of a peninsula with a small lighthouse at its end – a good place within walking distance from the house (about five minutes) to swim and to look for shells - and the town of Loutra Aedipsou, famous for its hot mineral springs which flow directly into the sea, on the other side of the bay.
The house is equipped with just about everything one might need during a holiday at one’s disposal ranging from a hammock and a deck chair, a sunbed, umbrellas, beach chairs and beach towels to a wifi connection, a map of the island, a guidebook and a fully equipped kitchen corner in the living room. The owners, who spend their weekends in an adjacent house, are very hospitable – the welcome gift in the form of tasty food from a local producer was very generous and delicious - and helpful without intruding and interfering with one’s privacy. Their instructions on how to reach the house and on where to find necessary facilities such as bakeries, butchers and tavernas in the vicinity are to the point and extremly helpful. In short: Because of its location in a quiet and peaceful corner on the incredibly green island of Evia, which is also a great place for hiking on forest roads, the house is an ideal place to spend one’s holidays: beaches with tavernas and sunbeds can be reached by car in about 10 minutes, and it is a perfect starting point for explorations of the northern part of Evia.
Ralou, thank you so much for four recreative weeks in a wonderful country at a special place!!
Wir verbrachten hier wunderbare 2 Wochen. Das Haus ist sehr geschackvoll eingerichtet und Frau Roula und ihr Mann sind sehr, sehr nette und hilfsbereite
Der Strand ist eine Wucht und auch die Umgebung ist bestens für ruhige, erholsame Tage geeignet. Vor allem die Nachbarn sind freundliche Menschen!!!
Ich werde mit Sicherheit wieder kommen!!!!
Vielen Dank für alles Frau Roula!!
Sono stata ad Evia con il mio fidanzato e due amici e siamo stati molto bene da Roula. Oltre ad essere una persona molto colta e interessante, si è dimostrata un'ospite premurosa e piena di attenzioni.
La casa è esattamente come si vede dalle foto: oltre alla bella vista sul mare abbiamo apprezzato che, essendo una casa vissuta dai proprietari, c'è tutto quello che può servire: dai sacchi per la spazzatura, allo stendino, ai teli per il mare, ai prodotti antizanzare! Non ci è mancato nulla.
Roula ci aveva anche lasciato marmellate, miele e altre cose per la colazione.
Segnalo che la casa è su una collina e che per arrivare ci la strada è un po' impervia, come molte strade di Evia.
Infine un'annotazione interessante per gli italiani: Roula parla benissimo l'italiano!

However, if somebody feels the need to get again into contact with civilisation, there is the nearby city of Edipsos. A car is necessary! The house is composed of a living room with two balconies and an open kitchen and two bedrooms(one with a double and one with twin beds). There is one bathroom with shower box. It can be rented on its own or in combination with another similar property (that can host up to 5 persons), which has the same view, is closer to the sea and just 50 meters away from the property of the listing. Maps and guide books as well as suggestions on things to do will be provided upon booking.
