About the property

Old shepherds house with a touch of style in Old Town Alonnisos

This is an old shepherd's house, so overall it's fairly basic, although it does benefit from a recently refurbished bathroom and hot water system as well as a massive queen size bed with luxury Cocomat mattress.

It's nice and cool in the summer, with a beautiful new balcony over a side-of-the-street, chill-out porch.

This is really somewhere to get away and forget the world on a Greek island with the sunshine, the flowers, the clear waters and the utterly unrushed village around you. You have a 15 min or so walk down the mule path to the secluded beach, you're up on a big hill so this is a lovely walk if you're fit, curving round a gorgeous valley with pine and olive trees, lizards dart over the stones. It's also just a couple of minutes walk to the central square with its abundance of bars and restaurants, and from where you can pick up a bus or taxi to connect to the rest of the island.

Tiny but adorable cottage

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our short but pleasurable time in this house. It provided all that we needed, with great access to the lively Chora.The bed is superb, and sitting on the balcony with drinks was SO enjoyable. Pretty bathroom too. Thank you Charles and Melanie.

Ein sehr romantisches Häuschen. Liebevoll eingerichtet. Toller Ausblick von der Terrasse! Da schmeckt der Morgenkaffee gleich noch mal so gut! Gemütliche und funktionale Küche. Am Ende der Saison in "the old village" und auf der gesamten Insel wenig los. Und trotzdem nicht langweilig. Schöne Badetage an wundervollen Buchten. Gute Abendunterhaltung bei sehr guten Drinks in der Bar Aerides bei Ionnis und Maria. Romantische Spaziergänge - auch über den alten Eselspfad nach Patiri: lecker Fischessen! Tolle Unterkunft, nette Menschen, wunderschöne Insel. Danke auch an Mel und Charles!

Old cottage full of character with stunning views

  • 4 of 5

I stayed in this charming tiny old house for 3 weeks from late June to mid July. As was stated to me in the particulars it is an old shepherd's house with all the quirks one would expect in an old property which is part of its charm. The house is chock full of character and very welcoming with fascinating artefacts decorating the upstairs traditional fireplace. This room has an open beamed ceiling and wood floors. The equipment in the cool downstairs kitchen is basic with just a 2 ring gas hob to cook on as in many old houses in Alonnisos but there is a fridge (stocked thoughtfully with juice, milk and fruit for my arrival), a new sink and new pans. Upstairs the huge bed with top of the range new mattress is super comfy. The new shower room downstairs is a cut above the norm for Greece and is up to modern bistro standards. The advice to turn off the water heater before showering is standard in properties in the old town, I have come across this before in new build apartments. The views from the upper terrace outside the bedroom are stunning and the downstairs patio is great for a shady lunch in the heat of the day. When I arrived there was rain and wind so the fan heater provided was very welcome. By the time I left it was too hot to sit out until 5pm when the terrace was in shade so the shady patio downstairs was even more welcome. I needed to use the fan provided to cool the bedroom ready for sleep. There was an abundance of clean linen and towels and bedding was changed as often as requested. There was a selection of very interesting books. Neighbours are very friendly. I absolutely loved staying here. I only have one suggestion for improvement. Some of the old electric sockets do need replacing hence four rather than five stars.

Magnifique séjour !!!

  • 5 of 5

La petite maison jaune est en tout point identique à la présentation qui en est faite. Le confort est simple, certes, mais suffisant pour qui apprécie le charme de l'ancien. L'île d'Alonissos nous a laissé un magnifique souvenir, avec des paysages fantastiques et une atmosphère calme et reposante. Le vieux village est typique, et malgré tout vivant le soir avec ses tavernes et ses terrasses où prolonger la soirée pour boire un verre dans une ambiance très cool... La location se trouve un peu à l'écart du centre animé. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié ces vacances, et recommandons vivement !!!
