It is 80 meters away from the sea. There are no discos, restaurants or coffee shops around, the beach is sandy and very quiet. It is 13 km away from Edipsos, a famous spa city known from antiquity.

It is 80 meters away from the sea. There are no discos, restaurants or coffee shops around, the beach is sandy and very quiet. It is 13 km away from Edipsos, a famous spa city known from antiquity. During your stay, you can visit the Thermae Sylla Spa considered by Conde Nast Traveller England one of the top Medical Spas in the World and try different types of treatment. The village Gialtra, where you can find most of the basic shops plus a pharmacy, is on the top of the hill, within walking distance (10 to 15 minutes). The house itself is 70 sq.m., it is furnished with taste but has no particular amenities. It is the ideal place for people who want to live for sometime in simplicity and enjoy nature, hiking (the place is surrounded by forests), swimming (the sea is very safe, as it is a small gulf) or surfing. Since this is a property offering an alternative way of life during one's vacation, there is no television but there is wi fi connection if you choose to stay in contact with civilization A car is necessary! The house is composed of a living room with two balconies and an open kitchen, and two bedrooms(one with a double and one with twin beds). There is one bathroom with shower box. There are screens at all the windows and ventilators in the bedrooms. *Upon request you can have Greek dishes cooked by a local lady and delivered at your doorstep. Communication languages: English, French, Italian, Greek.More

This house is to be dreamt of for those who love finding themselves plunged into the quietness of the green, a true nature and an authentic village atmosphere. The location is amazing for many things: for it’s picturesque view, for its closeness to the sea,...More
