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

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.

In 10 minits we feel like in our own house! BUT when you said "the last few meters are a dirty road" it will better to say "THE LAST 500meters ARE A VERY,VERY DIRTY ROAD):i had a little Toyota Aygon & my daugther a Nissan micra which are almost unable to go down and to climb this "road" Only my son who rented a PoloVW had no problem. We arrived at 20hoo and there is no shop ,no mini market 20 km around: we had to run quickly to Nea Styra to buy something to eat (we were 10!) I think that these 2 points are to be explain before... All others is simply....fabulous!!! Best regards

                                                                                                    5 of 5

It can only capture part or glimpses of what you see . The estate is a must see in it's own rights , steeped in history but also in character and nostalgia. The Belvedere although one of the newer buildings contains it's own character and reminded me of a Greece I found over 30 years ago when I first visited the country . Yet the Belvedere also offers air conditioning in all of its rooms as well as the shutters to keep the rooms cool during the bright sunny days . The villa had all the mods and cons plus the picture you see of the veranda does not quite show it all, there is outside dining facilities and a nice grilling place if you want to BBQ . I picked up some very good meat from the butchers near the bank down from the church. Everything was well kept inside and the host made sure you had everything you needed , even the toiletries and pantry items were there ready . The Breakfast for the first morning was a great treat and I would say it was enough to set you up for the whole day and more. The beginning of the holiday and already we felt spoilt and well taken care of. The swimming pool was a good size for the two villas and there was outdoor showers both up by the villa and next to the pool . The views from each place, pool , Villa and gardens were stunning. The whole area is secure and safe, there is parking right next to the villa and a very good guard dog that my kids fell in love with . There is plenty to see and worth looking at the tours and exploring . Dimitri's taverna was my favourite place to eat and within walking distance. Karystos is not so touristy but has plenty of other tavernas I would be more inclined to eat at the tavernas recommended as there is one or two on the seafront that cost without the quality IMO. Mili is an up hill climb by foot but well worth the walk . The Red Castle I suggest as the host recommended , using a car until the carpark, as the climb can be a bit much if the sun is shining , but a must to visit. There are water falls , secluded beaches and hikes in a number of directions. To be honest I think we have just scratched the surface in two weeks but the memories are fantastic. We left Montofoli sad because we enjoyed our stay very much and we also enjoyed our time with the hosts which are a big part of the Montofoli magic . ευχαριστώ !
