"The house of Mr Matthews...

  • 5 of 5

"The house of Mr Matthews is beautifully situated on the the edge of Langada overlooking the valley

and the sea.In the evenings you can watch the most fantastic sunsets with the sun going down behind the mountains of Naxos.

The house itself is restaured in the old style of

the island and partly build into the rock.The main room is spacious with high ceiling andleading into the kitchen where you find everything you need The other rooms all have the

entrance from the outside wich if you are with

several people gives everybody his or her privacy.This is also the case with the outside

bathroom.The garden is full of flowers-also herbs.Thefriendly assistence of the owners sister Carolina is of great value."

"I always dreamed of stay...

  • 5 of 5

"I always dreamed of staying in the perfect old Greek whitewashed house, and this was it. The view is amazing, the restoration makes the house easy to be in without being inauthentic, and the ambiance was peaceful and lovely. This is not a house for those who want their accommodations to be state-of-the-art modern (the bathroom is in a small out-building, for example), but as the perfect, romantic Greek island experience -- absolutely."

The house was exactly as described on this site. The location is beautiful and pictoresque.

We expected it would take a little adaptability. However we were unpleasantly surprised by the fact that clearly the house hadn't been properly cleaned, especially the bathroom, which hadn't been cleaned at all. Litter bins in the bathroom and the kitchen were still full.

Also the condition of all beds was unacceptable; especially the ones in the living room were problematic: old foam rubber mattresses were both dirty and uncomfortable and the underlying wood planks were worn out and dusty. Pillows were beyond description.

Very good

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un très beau moment dans cette maison charmante, restaurée et décorée avec simplicité, selon les traditions. Le village, la maison, la manière d'y vivre, permettent de se sentir vraiment à Amorgos, d'une façon privilégiée et authentique. Nous étions avec trois enfants, qui ont aimé la maison tout autant que sa position géographique, parfaits pour leur liberté!

Un grand merci à Carolina.
