About Thomas Zafeiris

My name is Thomas Zafeiris and I live with my wife in the city of Thessaloniki where I grew up. I graduated high school in Greece and I got my bachelors degree in the United States. I curently work as an airline captain for a major Greek airline. I enjoy working and improving our Parthenona house preparing it for long summer stays. I also enjoy good food and wine and the company of my good friends while relaxing after work in Thessaloniki or Halkidiki.

Thomas Zafeiris purchased this cottage in 1986

Why Thomas Zafeiris chose Sithonia

This property was bought by my parents in 1986. They were invited by a family friend to visit Parthenonas. They became enchanted by the place and the particular house. Shortly after that it was decided to buy and renovate the property. They invested a lot of time, money and their love of the area to make the house what it has now become. A place for our family, friends and guests to relax and enjoy.

What makes this cottage unique

The magnificent view overlooking Toronaios bay, the small island of Kelyfos, Kassandra peninsula and in the distance Mount Olympus is always a rewarding moment when staying at our place. The sun sets behind Mount Olympus and Kisavos leaving behind its orange and magenta colors and it’s the perfect backdrop after a long day at the beach or hiking in the mountain. Enjoy your complimentary first breakfast in the outdoors dining area (complete with eggs, ham and greek cheeses, local honey and marmalade, orange juice, milk and coffee). Later in the day have a glass of wine from the bottle of local wine by Domaine Carras that we offer to all our guests and start enjoying your holidays!

Great place to relax and good base to explore the region

  • 5 of 5

Location:

Parthenonas is probably the most beautiful village in Halkidiki, lined with cobblestone alleys and stone built houses with great sea view. It is away from the mass tourism paths, which makes it quiet and peaceful even in the high season. There are two taverns and a couple of cafe-bars in the village. The obvious implication for the logistics is that Parthenonas is away from the sea (nearest beach 10-15 minutes drive, and many fabulous beaches within 30-40min drive), and equally away from all amenities, so you need a car practically for everything.

Property:

The property is a renovated semi-detached, which maintains many original features. It is very tastefully decorated, and includes practically everything one would need for a comfortable stay. The ground floor living room and kitchen are a bit on the dark side, but the fabulous patio and outdoor living space more than makes up for it. The layout (1 double bedroom and 1 bedroom with 4 bunk beds) make the property suitable for a couple or a family (even a big one) but probably less suitable for two couples. Note that the beautiful wooden floor does not provide any privacy between the ground floor and the upper floor.

The house was really quiet, except for Saturday evening, where the nearby tavern held an event with live music. During our stay, nobody stayed at the adjacent semi-detached, so we cannot judge if the next-door neighbors would be heard. In any case this property is much more quiet than what you can usually find in Halkidiki.

The bedrooms are equipped with ceiling fans, which did a good job, but not with air conditioning. This may be an issue on a very hot summer day, but was not an issue on a normally hot summer day.

The property is equipped with mosquito nets on all openings, which effectively keep insects outside.

The property was spotlessly clean on our arrival, and was cleaned once more during our 5-night stay. Upon arrival the owner supplied us with provisions "for our first breakfast", which were actually enough for much more than that.

The owners:

The owner and his sister, who welcomed us, were very friendly and helpful. Before arrival and during check in we were provided with enough information for our stay. During our stay the owner was always accessible by phone or mail, and even proactively arranged to solve a problem with the water supply before us alerting him.

Overall impression: a great vacation, highly recommended- we had a wonderful time!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We value your feedback in order to improve our guests experience. We will be hiring a professional in order to change the light of the ground floor and make it a bit more bright. The nearby tavern holds some events with live music on Saturday evenings during the peak season of the summer. It usually lowers the volume of music around 23:00-23:30. We will communicate again with them in order to impose that more strictly. This summer has been unusually hot. In the past no a/c was necessary even during the hottest hours of the day because of the location of the village near the forest. We are thinking though as climate is rapidly changing to install an a/c in the upper floor. Looking forward to welcoming you again in our house.

The house is like a dream, you can really feel the authentic greek stile.

  • 5 of 5

Parthenonas is a lovely an quiet village, 320 m above the sea, with a fantastic view only 8 minutes drive from Neos Marmaras. The architecture of the whole village is traditional, almost all the houses are renovated and preserved in the same stile. While talking a walk in the narrow streets you can feel like time has stopped.

The property is well situated for seeing the whole peninsula of Sithonia, obviously by car.

The owner was very helpful. He gave us a list of places to see and a list of beeches in Sithonia, this was great, we managed to see almost all of them in 10 days.

The property is very well equipped, it has a real charm and it is very quiet. Also very clean and well maintained.

The sitting area with the BBQ and the oven, right outside the house, is the highlight of the place. We bought fresh fish from Neos Marmaras and spent some nights at the house and it was great.

Also the sitting area inside is very cozy and the collection of Greek music available was great.

We were 4 adults and one child and the house was perfect for us but there is room for more. I would truly recommend this property.

Very relaxing holidays

  • 5 of 5

We've spent 8 nights at the end of October/beginning of November in Parthenonas and we've had a very relaxing holiday. Thomas and his wife were phantastic hosts, always available for any questions. The house is very cosy, has a central heating and an open fire place, which have been only necessary in the evening and morning. The weather was still very nice, so we went to the beaches at noon and enjoyed the sun. And very often we were the only ones on the beach. Partenonas is also a very nice place for hiking in this season, that's why the restaurants and coffee bars are still open. All in all, we spent a phantastic time and can really recommend the house!

Beautiful Cottage in an amazing site of Sithonia with very friendly hosts! 10/10 points...

  • 5 of 5

In August 2016 we spent a week in Parthenonas in the beautiful Cottage of Thomas! What ca I say: it was really amazing. The small moutain village Parthenonas is simply gorgeous. So is the house! With a very traditionell architecture and interiour we felt very comfortable from the first second.

The house is very well equipped, clean and has everything you need (and more than that). We especially enjoyed the outside kitchen and the beautiful garden with it's wonderful seaview. With only a 10-15min drive from the coastline and "holliday infrastructure" (super markets, bakeries etc.) the location is very convenient. Also the drive to Parthenonas accros regional olive plantations is worth a few stops. Some traditional Taverns are just next door.

On top of that Thomas was extremely friendly and helpful making our trip that beautiful. He gave us tips on local wines, beaches and infrastructure. Also he gave us a very warm welcome during our arrival.

All in all: 10 out of 10 Points!!! I would recommend the house to anyone who is looking for a beautiful, calm and traditional spot in the nature with close distance to the beach and very friendly and uncomplicated hosts. We will definitely come back! Thanks Thomas!

Fantastischer Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir sind Ende September in das Landhaus gekommen. Buchung und Vorlauf waren sehr angenehm, der Vermieter hat uns sehr viel hilfreiche Informationen über Anreise und Aufenthalt gegeben.

Er war für uns immer erreichbar.

Das Landhaus ist ein

komplett renoviertes altes Steinhaus mitten in den Olivenhainen. Das Wohnhaus hat eine sehr gut ausgestattete Küche. 2 Schlafzimmer und 2 Bäder sind vorhanden. Der Wohnbereich ist sehr gemütlich. Die Bettwäsche wurde gestellt und nach 4 Tagen neu bezogen. Auch Handtücher und Badetücher für Bad und Strand waren verfügbar. 2 mal pro Woche kommt eine Haushälterin.

Der Garten und die Terrassen sind klasse. Wir haben immer draußen gefrühstückt und zu Abend gegessen.

Der Urlaub war sehr gelungen.

Das kleine Landhaus mit seinen vielen Antiquitäten ist trotzdem sehr modern und geschmackvoll eingerichtet.

Der Aufenthalt war total unkompliziert und angenehm.

Wir kommen gerne wieder.

Tagsüber sind wir nach Neos Marmaras gefahren, ca. 5 Autominuten. Dort gibt es einen herrlichen Sandstrand, weiter nördlich sind kleine Badebuchten. In Neos Marmaras gibt es auch viele gute Restaurants. Wir sind abends meist zum Essen dorthin gefahren.
