There are no words to describe these wonderful houses. They are located a few meters away from Chora, the main village of Koufinisi, on the top of a small hill. The view at Chora, the endless blue of Aegean sea and the surrounding islands (from any room or veranda) was just breathtaking.
When we arrived at the island Vasilis welcomed us at the port and transported us to the villas. There we also met Evi and together they showed us around the houses and explained how to use the facilities. They treated us with local delicacies and they left an amazing food-basket for the upcoming days! How sweet and welcoming!
The place they have created is so elegant and luxurious. Everything is taken care to the last detail. We enjoyed the harmony and comfort of the interior (totally aligned with the Cycladic architecture), the relaxing and playful moments by the pool, the extraordinary view from the verandas, the luxury of the spa area.
The houses are surrounded by a beautiful garden which is worth exploring- there are different kinds of aromatic plants, few trees, flowers, two play areas and some hammocks.
The kitchens were fully equipped with anything we could have possibly needed or even imagined.
Albert and Lola were cleaning and maintaining the place on a daily basis. We were impressed by their discrete and polite presence.
One of the reasons though this place will always stay in our hearts is because it accommodated one of the most beautiful moments of our life: our wedding. Organizing a dinner and a party for 100 people is not an easy task. It would have never been possible without the support of the owners, Evi and Vasilis. Six months in advance they provided us with the plan of the houses so we could make the arrangements of the dining tables, they brought us in contact with the person who installed the sound system in the houses to make sure we rent the extra sound equipment with the correct specifications, they allowed us to visit 3 months in advance to inspect and figure out our decoration plans. They have always been polite and very responsive to any e-mail we have sent them.
I was really touched though by the way they wanted everything to be perfect for us and our guests during the wedding day. They payed attention to the correct lighting of the tables and made sure everything was running smoothly. Again their presence was extremely discrete.
Evi and Vasilis thank you from the bottom of our hearts for this amazing experience.
