About the property

Vaia Villas

Vaia Villa’s houses and apartments are surrounded with flowers, herbs, and natural beauty, and located in a peaceful, clean area with private parking. With a coffee or beer on the shaded front porches, you will enjoy watching the sunrise and sunset, the beautiful reds and purples colouring the cliffs on the opposite side of the bay. Fresh air and sea breezes, and perhaps a walk in the hills, will awaken your appetite for a dinner of fresh fish and locally grown vegetables at one of the village tavernas. Some of the best fish in Greece is caught by local fishermen. If you are an early riser, you may even see your dinner arriving! Several beaches, some pebble and some sand, offer places to swim or relax near the village. Special celebrations take place in the village at Easter time and you are welcome to join in. The people are very friendly and the village offers much hospitality all year round. In the fall, olives and grapes are harvested and oil and raki (the local spirit) is made.

A Wonderful Villa!

  • 5 of 5

We've had a wonderful time at 4 Vaia Villas - it's a very well-equipped villa with glorious views and a good measure of privacy. The air con in the bedrooms works well, there's normally a breeze coming off the sea, and the village of Mochlos is lovely. Thoroughly recommended.

Séjour à Mochlos

  • 5 of 5

Juillet 2015: nous venons de passer deux semaines extraordinaires dans la maison de Eleanor Huffman. Le cadre est magnifique, la terrasse offre une vue splendide sur la mer et sur les falaises aux couleurs stupéfiantes.

La maison dispose de tout le confort nécessaire et nous avons beaucoup apprécié le changement régulier du linge de maison.

Mochlos est un charmant petit village de bord de mer; cependant, une voiture est indispensable pour visiter les alentours et découvrir quelques criques enchanteresses!

Nous avons hâte de revenir et découvrir la région à une autre saison.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your positive comments and feedback! We have added screen to the window closings and some of the houses have mosquito nets in addition to the screen. Usually we do not have many mosquitos, but it only takes one. All the best, Eleanor

Love Mochlos

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in several of these villas. The view is amazing, the villas are well equipped & the owners are very helpful. Mochlos is beautiful with a good choice of taverna's all on the sea. We look forward to staying here again.

Maison confortable et vue superbe

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons été super bien accueilli par Eléanor qui nous a conduit jusqu'à la maison. Pour le coup nous avons été agréablement surpris par la maison et la localisation car les photos sur homelidays sont mélangées avec celles des autres locations et on imaginait pas forcément une location placée comme celle ci avec une vue à couper le souffle. De plus l'intérieur est spacieux assez confortable. Seul bémol si vous êtes 5(comme nous)le canapé qui sert de cinquième couchage est pas très confortable (pour un petit cela peut passer mais pour un adulte limite).

Tolles Ferienhaus

  • 5 of 5

Es ist ein wirklich geschmackvoll eingerichtetes Ferienhaus mit allem was man im Urlaub braucht! Der Blick von der Terrasse aufs Meer ist unglaublich und der Urlaub kann beginnen. Das Haus selbst bietet aus fast jeden Fenster ein traumhaften Blick. Wir waren zu zweit und nutzten das obere Schlafzimmer mit kleinem Balkon und für abends zum Herunterkühlen die Klimaanlage. Die Küche ist gut eingerichtet und wir haben alles gefunden, was wir brauchten. Einmal in der Woche wurden die Betttücher und Handtücher gewechselt.. und auch alles sauber gemacht 😊👍

Der Ort selbst bietet abends schöne Lokale und tagsüber viele tolle Ausflugsziele und Strände. Aber ich würde ein Mietauto empfehlen!

Ansonsten muss ich sagen, Eleanor und ihr Mann sind super Gastgeber und sehr hilfsbereit.. Danke dafür!!

Ich kann diese Unterkunft nur empfehlen und für uns gibt es bestimmt ein nächstes Mal!

Mochlos is a small fishing village with several taverns and several small shops. Remains of a Bronze age town are visible on the island opposite the town. In the sea near the village, fish tanks dating to the Roman era are visible. During the summer months, archaeologists conduct an excavation on the island, providing more information on the local history, which goes back almost continuously for over 4000 years! Special celebrations are held at Easter and you are welcome to participate. Olives and grapes are harvested in the fall, and then the production of oil and raki, the locally manufactured liquor, begins. Be sure to sample the oil, the raki, and don't forget the local red wine!

Other Activities: Diving is available at a nearby hotel (25 min. away) and golf is available at the new course near Hersonissos (40 min away).
