A nice vacation in a house full of history.

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family of 7 people we had a wonderful holiday in this fantastic house. As if we lived in history. Owners are very friendly and helpful, especially the location of beaches and recreational areas. The house is equipped with everything necessary. We are grateful. It is absolutely necessary to have a car to get to know all beaches and beautiful places on the island. We recommend this location to our friends.

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

We spent 8 amazing days in this beautiful house with our four daughters. We had a wonderful time and we definitely want to return in the future.

The house is located in a peaceful little village with a charming main square and friendly locals. Our host was fantastic: quick to answer emails, extremely helpful and hospitable. He gave us detailed information on the best beaches, restaurants etc. He even prepared a delicious dinner for us in a traditional stone oven.

The house itself is equipped with all modern conveniences, we didn't miss a thing.

We tried almost all the beaches Jannis recommended, they were beautiful and not at all crowded.

A memorable holiday in a delightful house

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovingly restored house on the edge of the delightful hill village of Styra. Six of us in our sixties rented this house from the charming owners Jannis and Thalina. The main house has been laid out as two apartments with a separate apartment across the courtyard. We used the house as a whole and used the upstairs kitchen. There is a mezzanine bedroom above the living room/ kitchen which we didn't use. The furniture consists of some lovely old family pieces which lends great character to the house.. Jannis & Thalina met us at the house and gave us a welcome drink . The following morning they arrived to meet the other couples accompanied by Jannis's father Spiros and bringing us flowers,eggs, wine and Tsipouro. Initial problems were sorted out and later they met us in Nea Styra which is the nearby town on the sea where we were given lots of information about the local area, beaches , resaturants etc.

On the holiday Monday a splendid lunch of kid goat was cooked for us in the wonderful stone oven in the courtyard and we were taken to a tradional village festival up above Styra where we were introduced to the local Mayor. We were treated royally.

We loved the village of Styra which has a bakery, a vegetable shop, two mini markets and a wonderful butcher which has a taverna which opens at the weekens. There is a very smart Kafenion also which serves excellent coffee and wonderful orange pie which Thalina told us we must taste. She was right! We found lots of lovely beaches which were not touristy but had tavernas and umbrellas. Jannis organised for three of us to join a walk down the Dimosaris Gorge which was a real highlight of our holiday. The local guides Mihaelis and Vassilis are charming and most knowledgeable.

The House of Prince is a luxurious gite in a rural setting but only five minutes from the sea.
