Hi!My name is Diamanto. I like to meet people and make new friends. Most of all, I love hosting people make them feel at home even if far away from their homes!
The view from all balconies is breathtaking !
What a wonderful holiday we had in Sykia. The apartment is well laid out, spacious and clean. The upper terrace gets the sun until about 11 am and then becomes a welcome area of shade. The lower and bigger terrace gets the sun all day. The views are exactly like the adverts photos, you will not be disappointed. What is not shown is that there is a taverna under the lower terrace, how handy is that? their food is good and they will even serve you on the terrace if you ask them. Diamanto and Yanis cant do enough to help you, just ask and they will do what they can. We got lost but Diamanto waited until we arrived at 2 am. The fridge was stocked with some basics and essentials like wine. There are Lemon, Orange and Lime trees in the garden, just pick what you want. On more than one occasion Diamanto brought us home made lemonade which was lovely. All the local people are nice and helpful and most speak a little English. The beach is all stones, there is no sand but the water is calm and safe for children. There are plenty of very good Taverna's and coffee bars all along the promenade with tables by the beach. A local baker for fresh bread every day. On Friday there is a local market in Xiklokastro. The fruit and vegetables are outstanding, the apricots and peaches and cherries are outstanding. There is a nice old church in the square and lots of cafes, bars and taverna's. For a relaxing holiday away from mass tourism this is the place, and Diamanta Suites is the apartment to stay at.
The property is very nicely decorated and faithful to the pictures showed. The main bedroom is spacious, the second bedroom can easily accommodate two teens (we didn't hear any complaint from them). Both bedrooms have air-conditioning (but not the living room). The living room is very large and there is ample space for cooking. The best part is the terrace, which gives wonderful views on to the sea and its north shore -- we used it every evening for dinner.
The house gives to the street and we were afraid that it'll be noisy, but it wasn't a nuisance at all for sleeping and it was mostly quiet during the day and late evening.
The TV is modern, and you may want to bring a HDMI connector with you if you plan to watch movies from a laptop (which we did). If you're too tired for cooking dinner, just walk across the street and sit at a taverna terrace. Same if you want a quick dip into the sea, walk across the street.
The place is a bit far from the important sightseeing in the Peloponnese and around the Corinthian sea (Delphes, Mystra, Epidaure, loussios Gorges) and you need to count a good 2 to 3 hours driving one way to get to these.
The beach is pebble, not sand, as are all of them around the Corinthian sea. Sun exposition is good up till 5 pm, after that your in the shade of the village houses that borders the beach.
There also a train that goes directly from Kiato (15mn from the house) to Athens and its airport, which turns out to be very convenient. The owners are very nice and helpful, and our stay was very enjoyable.
Lovely appartment. Great view of the sea. made to feel at home. We arrived later than expected. The owners left a fruit basket for us and some food in the fridge. They took us shopping the next day and showed us round the town. Would definetly stay there again. Also the orchard in the garden fantastic.
The appartment is very confortable and well furnished with special attentions of the owners. you'll find oïl, Pepper and everything. if something is needed just ask Diamento or his wife. If you have any question they are here help you.
The appartment is just near the sea, you only have to cross the road. A nice bbq is available.
You have restaurants, tavern, a bakery, a small grocery at 5 min by walk.
The nearest supermarket is at about 5-8 min by car.
The appartment is located just in front of the sea.
The only negative point is that there is a road with traffic just between the terasse and the the sea !
Die Ausstattung der Wohnung lies keine Wünsche offen. Die Terrasse mit Meerblick einfach großartig. Die Vermieter sehr nett und immer hilfsbereit.
Weder die unterhalb liegende Taverne, noch die stark befahrene Küstenstraße vor dem Haus haben uns gestört. Kiesstrand mit kostenlosen Liegen und Schirm vor dem Haus am Strand. Bäcker, kleiner Minimarkt und mehrere Tavernen in unmittelbarer Nähe.
Avant toute chose, le point fort de cette location est l'accueil amical et serviable de Diamanto et Ioanis, des hôtes charmants.
Le logement est parfait, vaste, propre, bien éclairé avec toutes les commodités. En prime un joli jardin à l'arrière et une grande terrasse à l'avant avec une vue sublime sur le golfe de Corinthe.
Sykia est un petit village avec plusieurs restos et les services de base. Par ailleurs on peut trouver tout le nécessaire à 10 min. en auto à Xylocastro. La proximité de l'autoroute facilite les déplacements plus éloignés. Encore merci à Diamanto et Ioanis.

Sykia is the best destination for those who search for relaxing and romantic moments. Families will appreciate the calmness and comfort in their holidays at the private suite!
