There is even a backgammon to really get into the Greek vibe with your morning coffee. Our host Ioannis is extremely helpful and generous with his time and knowledge of the island, he even gave us a delicious homemade jam on our departure. Volissos has all the amenities you need including a couple of supermarkets, a pharmacy, a patisserie and many delicious tavernas to eat in. The castle towers over the village and is beautiful when lit up in the evenings. Chios island is a wonderful place to adventure around on too, with a great history very well explained at the mastiha museum and a huge variety of beaches, landscapes and landmarks. We will definitely be visiting again soon.

You are some distance for main supermarkets but there are sufficient shops within walking distance but I recommend a car as it is a bit hilly and will give you freedom of accessing beaches and eating places .the food is always very good. We spend a month yearly for the last 5 years and we just love it to be here. The villa is well equipped with private and common garden.The BBQ is also nice way to enjoy the dinners with friends. Overall the villa is well maintained with clean pool and beautiful gardens. The hosts(Ozlem and Nihan) are attentive but not intrusive. They are always on hand to help and support with any problems that may crop up. Honestly for the next few years we wouldn't consider going anywhere else!
