Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Evia, Greece your home away from home

Evia, in the Aegean Islands, is the second largest island in Greece, also known as Euboia or Euboea. Surrounded by stunning beaches and littered with traditional little villages, a holiday rental property in Evia is an ideal location to escape to at any time of year. Whether you are looking for complete peace or roaring nightlife in the evenings, Evia can provide both. Evia is a very popular holiday destination with Greek holidaymakers, with luxury villas and top class restaurants in good supply.

Things to do on holiday to Evia, Greece

Exploration of Evia, Greece, would take many weeks from a self catering Evia holiday rental villa as there is simply so much to see. Almost every one of the tiny villages adorning the island has large attraction to investigate from the caves of Paleochora to the monastery at Rouvies, the Frankish Fortress at Orei to the curative springs of Gialtra. These are not the only curative waters or spa resorts in Evia, and if you would like to indulge in a little pampering during your stay in an Evia villa, there are plenty of options to choose from. There are a number of excellent archaeological museums in Chilkida, Eretria and Skyros, which display some remarkable artefacts.

The beaches that surround the island are excellent for spending lazy days in the sun. The soft sands and warm, still waters of the Aegean Sea are a blissful combination, especially on the beaches of Nea Stira, Kimi and Agios Georgis. Water sports are very popular from Evia accommodation, especially sailing, wind-surfing and scuba diving. Deep sea fishing trips are easily arranged from the larger towns of Evia too.

Evia is also a haven for outdoor activities. The steep mountains and rolling foothills are ideal for walking, mountain biking, mountaineering and horse riding holidays. Villages are connected by ancient stone paths passing tiny, isolated churches and impressive Frankish castles. There are many excellent routes for walking, riding and cycling, especially around the famous Dimosaris Gorge. Travelling through the island is a genuinely special way to explore both the nature and culture of Evia, stopping off at traditional tavernas for a refreshing drink or meal, and visiting some of the more remote mountain villages.

Places to visit on holiday to Evia, Greece

Chalkida, Evia’s capital, has an enticing mix of ancient monuments and cosmopolitan facilities, and is most likely your first contact point with the island. There are numerous attractions within the city from the ruins of ancient temples to medieval fortresses as well as some of the finest restaurants in the whole of the island.

Weather in Evia, Greece

During July and August, hot conditions drive most visitors to Evia accommodation directly to the beaches and the sea, as daily peak temperatures soar well into the mid 30’s (?C). Walking, riding and mountain biking excursions thrive during the spring and autumn as the sting has been removed from the heat of the height of summer, yet temperatures still regularly reach 30?C during the day from May until mid-September.

The house was clean, comfortable, beautiful furnitures and with very well equipped kitchen. Eating on the veranda facing west, was memorable in the mornings as well as in the evenings watching the enchanting sunset. The two bedrooms on the bottom floor (which is cooler than the ground floor) had ceiling fans, which made them very pleasant. The two bedrooms on the ground floor have air-condition, which was useful in some of the days. The only place without climate control is the living room & kitchen, and to be honest, none was needed (except on the day we arrived when it was 41 degrees Celsius). As we arrived on Sunday when most supermarkets are closed, Yiannis & Caterina bought for us food necessaries … and prepared for us homemade pie, sauce for pasta, olives from their trees, jam … what a perfect welcome !!! The beach adjacent to the house, turns to be one of the best we ever saw in Greece. The clear, blue, calm waters, were irresistible … so we didn't resist. The tavernas in Port Buffalo are mediocre, but if you ask Stella (the owner of AKROGIALI Taverna) in the morning to prepare the dishes you like, you will end up having a great food in the evening. No words can describe how nice are Yiannis & Caterina, very hospitable and attentive to every question or request we had. Thank you for a perfect holiday, we shall return !!!
