If you are looking for a warm, welcoming home away from home while you tour Greece, look no farther! Our party of four couples stayed for two weeks (and we were even up to 10 people for a few days), and it was only with great reluctance that we ended our stay to return to our real homes back in the U.S. The quality of the accommodations were all top notch, the view was unparalleled, the patio/decks were incredible to lounge on, the kitchen was well stocked, the outdoor dining and grilling facilities were great, and most of all, our host/owner Christos was incredibly friendly; in short, it couldn't have been any better.
When I selected this villa as our base to explore Greece, focusing on the Peloponnesian Peninsula, it's centrality was one of the things that was key to me, and it was perfect in this regard. We rented a van and drove in all directions from the villa, logging over 2,000 miles/3,200 km, and if you want to see the real Greece and get off of the beaten tourist path, I'd suggest renting a car. The Athens airport is a very easy 1.5 hour drive north, and then from the Villa, all of the key sites are within easy driving distance. Corinth & Loutraki are a half-hour east for city and tourist 'stuff', Nemea is a half-hour south for wine-tasting, Mycenae, Nafplio, and Epidavaros are all about an hour away, Hydra, Kalavrita, and Olympia are about 2 hours out, and then 2-3 hours away is Delphi, the Mani Peninsula, Sparta, Momevasia, etc. In short, to see all of these main sites, the Villa's location is perfect, and then shopping for food is only a few minutes drive away, although there are two small markets just steps from the villa.
In closing, we all thank our wonderful host Christos for an amazing stay, although we know you felt bad that you were laid up due to your knee replacement surgery. We continue to wish you all of the best, and for a speedy recovery.....
Russ Deniston, family, and friends
