At Elaionos Nikou we got exactly what we hoped for a week of total relaxation – swimming, reading, eating and drinking, playing cards and much more….There was wonderful scenery, incredible quiet, a small beach usually entirely to ourselves, a beachside fish taverna 500 meters down the road and a short drive to the nearby town. There are about 6 stone houses, tastefully built and beautifully clean, situated within an olive grove bordering the Gera Gulf. Alex, the owner, was tremendously helpful, with a great briefing on the area when we arrived. The views, whether from our house or anywhere on the estate, were perfect. There was a seemingly endless range of places to sit and enjoy a glass of wine and the view, whether one’s own terrace or the various chairs, tables and loungers distributed around the grounds, on the beach and just above it. I had wondered whether our teenage children would be a little bored with so little action for a week. No way – one of them declared it the most perfect beach ever – it had quiet, it had shade but above all, it had snorkelling! Thrown in as an after-thought, our ancient snorkel seemed to be in constant use as the stony beach made for clear water and perfect views of a range of fish. The stones and the occasional encounter with a spiky sea anemome thing make wetsuit shoes a good idea. We bought some very easily in a shop near the supermarket opposite the town car park. All in all, an absolutely perfect place which set us up ideally for a busy week of site seeing in Turkey afterwards.
