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 owners Sofia and Dimitris gave us the warmest of welcome right from the start of the booking process - swift responses to questions; generously collecting us from the port on arrival; helping us to bring shopping back in their camper van; and providing helpful knowledge about places to see on Evia. The house is comfortable and accommodating. It is neatly designed to allow for a variety of different arrangements. We stayed in the first floor flat with the most beautiful view of the sea - it was wonderful to eat breakfast on the balcony looking at the Petali islands beyond. Lots of comfortable sofa chairs inside and out, an adequately stocked kitchen unit and efficient air-con. The shower/bathroom is small but perfectly formed. The garden area is spacious and kitted out with things to do and a small plunge pool, perfect for cooling off on a hot afternoon. The nearest beach is about 10 mins walk, it's naturally well-shaded with trees, has clear shallow water. A second beach is a little further away but equally beautiful with a couple of tavernas. We can't thank Sofia and Dimitris enough for their warm and relaxed welcome, kind and helpful hospitality. We enjoyed a couple of barbecues with them and had some great conversations! This was a wonderful introduction to Evia, we will be returning! No hesitation to recommend this lovely property and fabulous owners.

The sea was clear, the views were lovely. We had delicious food cooked for us by the lovely Dori. We were very well looked after, every question answered and every problem solved quickly. We all loved it aged 2-72! Thank you so much
