The deep blue waters of the Aegean Sea make for excellent snorkelling and scuba diving, and it is possible to find many other secluded spots along the rocky coastline, that other tourists have missed. Sesi Beach is one such sandy spot, which has clear waters that are perfect for swimming.

Much of what makes this place special has already been accurately captured in the earlier reviews: the spacious, spotless, tastefully decorated and cozy house, the genuine and discreet hospitality of the owners, the unique location right on the water's edge. In earlier years, we had sailed in Greece, and there is a special atmosphere on the water in the mornings and evenings. Living so close to the water in a secluded bay like Boufalo has that same atmosphere. Our older kids (4 and 6) were busy every day catching and observing sea life in the shallow shore waters by the house, and we felt very safe just watching them from the garden (what a treat.). Our son learned how to swim in front of the house. The Island Evia is fairly un-touched by international tourism, and Boufalo bay only sees the occasional Yacht. there are some beautiful beaches on the Aegean (east) coast of Evia, but honestly, most days, we just stayed at the house where we missed nothing. In summary, if you enjoy nature, the sea, Greek hospitality and privacy, this place is for you. We definitely hope for an opportunity to come back. Johannes
