We have just returned from spending two wonderful, memorable weeks at Eden Villa. Rob and Annie were the perfect hosts always there when you needed them but also very discrete. The villa was well maintained, clean and had the perfect pool; clean and much bigger than it looks in the photographs.
The villa is located on the edge of the village within a 3-minute walk to the local supermarket, café and restaurant. The views form all aspects of the villa were stunning, most evenings we ended up sitting on the roof top terrace gazing at the starry skies and spectacular views. We all grew very attached to Rob and Annie’s dog Fergie who was adorable.
The villa is in easy reach of three beautiful secluded beaches which are great for snorkelling and in peak season some practically empty. The main small port of Livadia is a short bus ride and offers a greater selection of shops and restaurants but still has beautiful views and uncluttered beaches.
We choose not to hire a car as there is a local bus service which runs to most places every two hours and only a short walk from the villa, there are stunning beaches and local restaurants. I would recommend the 20 minute walk to Agios Antonios (a small local port) where you can sit outside a great Taverna with stunning views and watch superb sunsets.
A late afternoon walk to Skaffee beech was also a highlight, the beech was empty, the sea clear and blue and the views amazing.
A climb to the local castle which is located behind the villa, also gave wonderful views over the island; watching the sunset was magical.
This is Greece how I experienced it 30 years ago and would love to return to Eden Villa and the memorable island of Tilos.
The house is beautiful, very well equipped and very tastefully decorated. Megalo Chorio is a beautiful, traditional Greek village and a really friendly place to stay. It does have narrow, steep winding streets though, so be prepared! The house is situated right at the top of Megalo Chorio with amazing views out to Eristos bay.
The owners, Maria and Christopher, couldn't have been more helpful before, during and after our stay. We thought really hard about any suggestions we could give them to improve the place and could not think of anything. Everything was perfect!
My partner and I agree that this was the best holiday we have ever had and we will definitely be back. Staying longer next time though!
