From our Guest Book: This is a real fluke! Fantastic location, wonderful house and very nice owners! Everything is lovely arranged. We spent wonderful and relaxing days here. The pool was the cherry on the cake. This is a dream-like place where we want to come back. (Patellis Family) We were curious to see what other people wrote about the house, and we share their opinion completely. We were very impressed by the welcoming and by your hospitality. The apartment in your house was absolutely wonderful. Thank you for the tips. The beautiful landscape, the overwhelming view from the terraces, the Mediterranean life made us forget the routine right away. Thank you so much for the 14 wonderful days! (Birgit and Peter). We were looking for a small vacation apartment, and we found a paradise here. This is a lovely arranged place with breathtaking view upon Poros and hospitable hosts. Everything is absolutely wonderful! (Fritsche Family)

Wonderful!

  • 5 out of 5
We, a family of five, had the most wonderful visit! Helga and Haris are excellent hosts, showing care from first contact and immediately making us feel at home on arrival.

Pictures and information on HomeAway/VRBO is correct and reliable. But reality is better, we got more than expected. Correspondence with owners have been easy with prompt replies to our questions.

We rented a car at the airport and had a 2 hrs drive to Galatas. Haris met up in the middle of the night in the village centre to guide us to the house.

We rented the Iris apartment which was fine for five persons, with three beds on upper floor. The apartment has a wonderful terrace with a view over Porous. Morning shade and afternoon sun. We enjoyed much of our time there as well as by the pool.

We got several tips for nearby excursions, i.e. the theatre of Epidavros, Methanon, with the vulcano and the fishing harbor Vathi. We visited Poros, both with and without the car. Poros is easily accessed in a few minutes by ferries from Galatas every 10 min. Favorite restaurant was the "Poseidon" on the west side of Poros. On the way back to Athens we stopped at Mycene. Galatas is a quiet village with some restaurants, cafes and two supermarkets.

Garden and house are very well maintained, very clean and and in excellent order. You can tell owners care! We can really recommend this property.

An idyllic holiday location.

  • 5 out of 5
The apartment Iris was well equipped and comfortable. The location is perfect for a quiet holiday, with a pool giving magnificent views across to Poros. There is plenty to do and see; our favourites were Epidauros, the volcano on Methana(on which our host Haris guided us!),. and of course the lively sea front on Poros, 90 seconds away by water taxi.
What made this holiday so special was the welcoming manner and generosity of the owners, Helga and Haris. Nothing was too much trouble for them.
We will never forget our 18 days in Galatas and would have no hesitation in recommending the apartment to others.

Superb location and excellent hosts

  • 5 out of 5
A perfect place to spend your holiday!!!! We spent 7 days here and had an absolute fabulous time. Haris and Helga were the most friendly hosts. Haris' help was invaluable in organizing our time. He had many useful tips on how we should spend our vacation or where to eat. On top of everything, Haris took care of our car trouble. The car we rented in Athens died as soon as we arrived in Galatas. He called the company right away and made sure that we had a replacement in 24 hours.
Haris and Helga have a beautiful property on the top of a hill with many Mediterranean trees, shrubs, and flowers. We couldn't stop admiring their skills in taking care of their garden. They have a pool with refreshingly cool water and gorgeous view of the island of Poros. Our apartment (Iris) was clean and very comfortable. And the view from the terrace (and the bedroom) was breathtaking!! By looking at adorable Poros, the bay, and the Methana Peninsula at various times of the day, we were convinced that this was a place for the Gods.

A lovely spot with stunning views over Galatas and across to Poros Island. The swimming pool has one of the best views I have ever seen and it is so clean that the swallows skim over the water to drink, as you swim by.
We have stayed twice and the appartment is spotless, with good airconditioning (essential in July and August) and plenty of shaded places to enjoy the quiet flower filled gardens.
A car is needed to drive the steep road up, but you can walk down into Galatas through the olive grove and quiet roads. The owners are helpful and knowledgeable and treat guests as genuine friends. We will be back!

A wonderful place and friendly welcoming hosts

  • 5 out of 5
This is a wonderful place to stay! The owners, who live in the main house, are friendly and helpful and speak good English. They directed us (2 adults plus children aged 6, 7 & 10) to places to visit locally that we wouldn't have found without their help - eg. a volcano, clean beaches in wonderful settings, the local patisserie. The apartment is clean, well-equipped and spacious. There is a shady terrace outside from where you can admire the garden and olive grove. From the terrace by the pool there are fantastic views across the water to Poros and the mountains beyond. The pool is great for all the family - large enough for adults to swim in, and fun for the children as well.
This area is off the main tourist routes and has a relaxed feeling to it. We had meals out in Galatas and Poros, both of which were authentic Greek food, not specifically geared to tourists. We enjoyed a trip to Epidavros, a day on Poros, a trek up the local volcano, and lots of time relaxing in the pool. There are plenty more places to visit, but we were only here for 4 days.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment.

The ancient goddess Filoxenia (hospitality) plugged in, more or less even in bad times, in the heart of each Greek!

When we arrived in your house, our expectations were exceeded. The lovingly furnished apartments with everything you need to live, the cool water in the form of the pool next door and only then to the wonderful view of the picturesque island of Poros. Also not to forget the gorgeous designed garden and finally your warm hospitality. All in all: a dream vacation in a small paradise! We stayed in your beautiful home glorious days '

That was an excerpt from a numerous entries in our guestbook.

And our answer to our guests and who wants to be our guest:

We did our best to house and property, especially intended as our retirement home, to make for the enjoyment of peace and quiet.
