The Neighborhood

Theologos is a beautiful seaside village of Fthiotida which is close to Athens and is ideal for small or long getaways all year round. The naming originates from the small church of St. John the Theologian. Beside the church are the ruins of the ancient city of Alon, most of which lie on the beach and in the sea. In this archaeological site excavations had been made with lot of discoveries: priestly houses, altars, monuments and a four-column temple dedicated to Athena.

Except the great beach of Theologos, bays hidden in green and several nearby small or large beaches wait for you to enjoy during your holidays. Theologos is famous for its sunsets; the sight of the sunset on the horizon is of exceptional beauty and is unforgettable to anyone who has enjoyed it. It is without doubt an important part of the magic of summer in Theologos where in conjunction with the green landscape sundown synthesizes unique images, captivates and excites the emotions.

The villa is in close distance from the famous natural thermal springs of Kamena Vourla, which is situated about 60 km north of Theologos, in central Greece and it is one of the oldest known hot bath spots. It has been in use since antiquity all the way to the present. It stands on the coastline of the tranquil north Evoikos gulf. It is categorized among the rarest thermal springs in the world because of its richness in natural minerals, salts and radon.

The positive energy and relaxation of this lifetime experience is the perfect combination for guests in order to live an incredible stay surrounded by nature.

Really don't understand anyone that wouldn't give this 5 stars. Agree the photos don't do the villa justice. On walking through the front door the size and scale just hits you. We were a party of 7 adults and 8 kids and loved every minute there and didn't want to come home. Plenty of room for everyone, loved the pool and snorkelling and even managed to swim across to the other side of the town. BBQ in and ate out and the owners couldn't do enough for us. Would love to go back (right now). Superb place.

Beautiful villa in hidden corner of Greece

  • 5 of 5

The first impression you get from Albatross Villa is that the nice pictures one can view on the web do not flatter enough to the villa, as well as to the villa’s yard and the beautiful view overlooked from almost every corner of the venue.

If you are into spending your vacation with a big group of family or friends, and not in a classical tourism destination, this is your place. We were a group on 13 adults and 3 small children, and never felt the house is too crowded. Yet, you must be aware that the house located on a downhill and moving around and within the house involved some stairs.

To begin with, the contact and corresponding with Nikolaos was smooth and easy. Before our arrival, Nikolaos was very responsive and helped a lot to find solutions to our needs.

The warm welcome we have received on our arrival was only a start to the warm welcome we have received from the people around the village. Not many English speakers around but nonetheless, it was never an issue and actually it is part of the vacation charm. Nikolaos’ father gave us a tour around the village on our arrival and it helped us a lot later on. Many thanks to lovely Maria and her father as well!

The house contains all you need for home cooking and meals for big groups, with big tables inside, on the Livingroom level, and outside, on the lower/pool level. We have done both, but I would also recommend going out for dinners to the local restaurants. We were never disappointed once we went out to dine. One of our favorites was a restaurant located only 250 meters from the house (Sarantis tavern).

The pool and the stairs to a small beach (Rocky Though) in front of the house are lovely. Yet, the view from the main porch and the pool, day and night, not to mention the stunning sunsets, is something you go to Greece for.

The village of Theologos has all you need; Good bakery, Pharmacy, Supermarket, few options for fruits and vegetables, including a place where you can buy Self-growth vegetables.

The center of Athens is only 75 minutes driving away from Theologos, as well as the impressive historical site of Delphi and beautiful nearby village Arachova. In Arkitsa and Kamena Vourla, 30/45 minutes driving from Theologos, you can take a ferry/boat (Respectively) to Evia or the lovely beaches of Lichadonisia.

If you like Greece and the Greeks as we are, you will not be disappointed from both, the house and the area. Hope we will be back to this lovely corner of Greece soon.

Beautiful villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The previous reviews have it pretty much covered – it's a beautiful villa in a great location, just outside a quaint seaside town. Situated on the ocean front with a large garden, this spacious villa is like having a mini resort to yourself. Walking distance to restaurants, with the city centre only minutes away by car. And to top it all the friendly and responsive assistance from Nikolaos who oversees the property. Warmly recommended!

Wow...Wow...Wow!! Absolutely stunning villa, better than we had ever dreamed!

  • 5 of 5

We've had an amazing holiday at Villa Albatross and the description describing it as the best villa in the area, is most definitely true!

We were met by Nikolaos and Maria who showed us around the villa and then gave some of the party a drive around the area showing us good beaches, restaurants and supermarkets/bakers etc. This was obviously really helpful. A supply of basics was also left (water/bread/jam etc.) which was helpful as we had come straight from the airport.

The villa was huge....perfect for three families. The bedrooms were all large, lovely and clean and all had air-conditioning which gave everyone a perfect nights sleep. The beds and pillows were really comfortable. The 3 bedrooms situated together that shared a large family bathroom were perfect for the children in our group to use and the fact that they were just slightly removed from the other rooms gave the adults in the group a bit of peace in the evenings! (The rooms are just a few steps up from the main living level of the house so they are not isolated!)

All of the other rooms had lovely en-suites attached.

The main living areas were brilliant - very large and the higher balcony was a lovely position to admire the stunning views in the mornings and sunsets in the evening. The main lounge had a large TV with Sky channels and a DVD player, music system with many DVD's and CD's. There were also many book shelves filled with books to borrow. This lounge also had a bar which was a bit of fun!

The games room on the lower level was brilliantly stocked with a Carroum Table, Table Tennis, 2 Card tables, Darts, Croquet sets...

Kitchens were absolutely full of everything you could ever need and the outside BBQ was fantastic. We ate outside at every opportunity as the views were spectacular.

The pool was perfect - large and really well looked after by the lovely gentleman who came early most mornings. The decking area was large and there were plenty of sun beds to relax and enjoy the gorgeous weather. There was usually a cool breeze which was perfect! The coastal entry from the villa was quiet and the sea perfect for swimming and diving into.

We saw a tortoise, praying mantis and a pod of dolphins in the bay which was extra special for us to see.

Overall, every one in the party couldn't fault the villa in any way. It felt like the type of villa that celebrities would use - the views were stunning and everyday we felt really lucky to be enjoying the experience! Thanks Nikolaos!

Top place to spend your family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We rent Villas across Europe every June and by far this is the best place so for. Would not go into a lot of details as other reviews have outlined most of them, however:

It feels like real home, not a clinical hotel, at the same time it's clean and cosy.

You have more space then you need... loads of it. We had 15 people and the only time it felt crowded is when you all get to the dinner table together.

Owners are great, proper introduction to the house and all reasonable requests are accomodated.

The area is not a tourist place, so no crowds on the beach (unless it's weekend and then all locals come out).

Swimming pool is great, water is not from the see but has a slightly salty taste. Would be superb if they would have a swimming pool to the originally planned size (the wooden deck around was supposed to be huge swimming pool i guess).

Please note that water heating is sun driven, so no hot water very late night or in the early hours of the morning untill the sun is in the full swing. This is not a problem if you know that and plan showers accordingly.

Also note that pool table is not actually a pool table but carambole one - i.e. it does not have pockets. Ping pong is great, but i suggest owner to put blinds in the games room as during the day the sun reflection is interfiering a lot.

In June, fish and butchers only work on weekends, so if you arive on the weekend, don't waste time and get to the butchers as there is no other place to buy fresh meet.

To summarise... recomended...around 12 people is ideal for the place... Enjoy!

An amazing property in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

When I saw the photographs of the property that Nikolaos has on the site, well I was impressed. However, when you actually get there the photos don't do it justice. The place is stunning! There is so much space and just about every need has been thought through by them. Nikolaos's father even took me into town and the surrounding area to show us the must see sights and introduced us to the best restaurants. The outdoor area is fabulous and the private beach area was enjoyed by everyone with great diving opportunities into crystal clear and wonderfully warm sea. The locals are really hospitable and the local pizza restaurant serves pizza that is as good (if not better) than any I have tasted in Italy.

I can honestly say that the house, location and the people make this a destination that I will never forget and definitely hope to visit again soon.

Simply wonderful - 10 out of 10!!!!
