About Dimitri

We are an international professional hospitality team, dedicated to serve our guests in a unique personal way, making sure that they go back home with unforgettable, lasting and lifetime holiday experiences. If anything truly defines us, is the value we attach to beautiful memories.

We adore the earth, the mediterranean sea and the greek sun. We take passionately care of our guests and we offer high quality services particularly for those who know how to appreciate the best.

Most important, we like to make people happy and to create innovative added value, in relation to tourism and travel.

Why Dimitri chose Phthiotis

What makes the Country House special, is the fact that it is located amidst a secluded large mediterranean estate, surrounded by hundreds of olive trees with a private pebble beach. Also, the fact that it has access to a big garden with a traditional bbq area and a lot of space for children to play safely.

The serenity of the mediterranean scenery, the private beach and the variety of the animals of the estate, will offer you an unforgettable holiday experience, only just two hours drive away from the airport of Athens.

What makes this cottage unique

Guests have the option to enjoy horse riding in the country side along the banks of Sperchios river or take horse riding lessons in the installations of Equestrian Club of Lamia, which is situated a half an hour drive north of the Country House, in the outskirts of the provincial city of Lamia. Reservations have to be made in advance of at least one week and the minimum number of persons are two. Transport can be arranged.

Thermopylae's hot springs

The baths of Thermopylae are located approximately 45 km north of the estate, along the highway, before the city of Lamia. The area is known for the battle of Thermopylae between the Greeks and Persians in 480 b.C.

The water temperature of the springs is 40oC all around the year and has therapeutic attributes for several diseases, due to its consistency of sulfur (i.e. treatment of rheumatic, gynecological diseases and peripheral nerves). That's why, when you first arrive in the area, near the springs, you have a strange smell from the odor of sulfur, which subsequently subside as you get used to it. The water is quite hot, so, it is an experience that you can fully enjoy only during winter. It's a unique experience for deep relaxation!!! The combination of hot water and the ingredients of sulfur don't allow one to stay inside the river more than 15-20 minutes. There are no facilities near the hot springs. Ιt's all in nature and it is definitely worth trying it!

The Best place ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a place to stay and the Country House is available book it right now. Book it for the maximum of days that you have in Greece or you will regret not being able to stay longer. We had an AMAZING and refreshing time. Thank you Dimitri for welcoming our family. It is a very peaceful place and at the same time exciting, we enjoyed every moment and every aspect of our staying there. Our boys cried to stay longer, they enjoyed feeding the horses, walking on the beach and skipping rocks. When you plan your staying in the country house make sure to arrange the meals with Dimitri, for in that way you will taste the most delicious typical food in Greece.

It was very easy to find the place, once Dimitri sent us the GPS coordinates we copy and paste and it took us to the right place. It was a very easy drive from Athens.

While there don't miss out in visiting the Thermophilus (hot springs) and the Leonidas monument. If you go to Delphi there is a beautiful back road that if you have the time and the weather is good, we highly recommend, it was beautiful .

In the port nearby there is a restaurant that serves a delicious fish. In the village nearby you can by the best fresh yogurt, ( in a clay dish) it was delicious, the best we ever had, and visit the bakery to find all the delicious greek sweets and pastry . Don't miss the opportunity to experience what we did, its such a magical place, from the time we drove through the gate we experienced something different, peace, and we felt refreshed after our time there.

The apartment was very well equipped, clean and comfortable. Its the best place ever, so don't wait any longer, take it while your dates still available.

A very well-equipped, comfortable and relaxing Greek countryside house with private beach.

  • 5 of 5

It was one of our very best holiday places, even when the weather wasn't all that great, we were still able to relax and enjoy staying in, swimming on our private beach, and enjoying the kindness and generosity of our host. Freshly-laid eggs, home-made jam, olive oil and lots of wine produced on the estate made this place such a restful and comfortable place.

It was close enough by car to nearby villages with many little shops where meeting with the local Greek people was simply wonderful. The Greek people we met were very friendly and helpful. Food is much less expensive here also. We were able to buy fresh meat, fish and poultry and fruits and vegetables, including Greek sweet specialties, such as Kataifi and many others. Greek yogurt is the best you can find in the whole wide world!!!

If you're looking for a quiet restful place near the sea and mountains but close enough to shops - this is it!

Magnifique maison de vacances au bord de mer avec son superbe jardin avec ses par terre de fleurs ,

  • 5 of 5

Cette jolie maison est super bien équipée !

Vous vous sentirez comme à la maison,et les petites attentions misent à votre dispositions comme les œufs au frigo ,la corbeille de fruits et le rosé sur la table.

Tout cela préparé par son intendant et son épouse très discrète mais là pour vous accompagner en cas de besoin.

Merci pour le jolie bouquet préparé pour notre arrivée !

La visite de Dimitri le lendemain nous a satisfait et et le sms durant notre séjour pour savoir si tout ce passer bien est très professionnel.

Je vous recommande de venir dans cette demeure ou vous vous sentirez sur un petit nuage.

Marie ,son époux et sa meilleure amie.

Ein Traum - direkt am Strand von Orangen- und Olivenbäumen umgeben

  • 5 of 5

Eigentlich sollte man hierzu gar nichts erzählen, damit niemand etwas mitbekommt. Das wäre aber nicht fair den Gartgebern gegenüber. Wer also ein schönes, ruhiges Plätzchen sucht, ist hier genau richtig. Wir waren im Herbst da, das Wetter war nicht nur bombastisch, aber man kann so schön die Seele baumeln lassen, dass das alles nichts ausmacht.

Das Haus ist so, wie es auf den Bildern zu sein scheint, wirklich ein Traum. Ein großzügiges Wohnzimmer mit Esszimmer Nische, eine gut ausgestattete Küche, zwei Schlafzimmer und Bad.

Meine Mutter (82J.) war auch mit und genau so begeistert wie meine Frau und ich. Im Sommer könnte man sicherlich noch viel mehr Zeit am Strand verbringen, wem das egal ist, nach Delphi ist es nicht weit, Athen ist gut zu erreichen und und und.

Private Beach in front of the Estate
Car: necessary

Stretching from Attica in the south (Athens) to Macedonia in the north (Thessaloniki), the vast expanse of Central Greece has a little of everything, from excellent beaches to breathtaking byzantine monasteries (Meteora) and famous ancient sites like Delphi, with the oracle of Apollo and last, but not least, famous battlefields like Thermopylae of Leonidas, the famous king of Sparta (5th Century B.C.).

Arkitsa is in the center of all these, 155 km north of Athens, a bit more than an hour drive. The Country House is situated by the sea, 5 km north of Arkitsa, occupying a private area of approximately 5 hectares (50,000 sq.meters), with easy road access. The estate has a private beach with pebbles. There are, also, plenty of sandy beaches in the area, the most famous and exotic ones being in Lichadonisia, a complex of tiny islands, some miles away, which are called "The Seychelles of Central Greece".

In addition, one can enjoy a variety of water sports in the area as follows:

a) In less than 20 km to the south (Beach of Atalanti), water ski. This spot provides only water ski facilities, throughout the day from mid-June to mid-September.

b) At Kamena Vourla (20 km to the north), there are agencies that rent small motorboats per day, organize in addition, daily cruises with larger boats to the nearby beaches and fascinating Lichadonisia islands, provide scuba diving and in general water sports services.

c) Finally, for the kitesurf lovers, the most famous beach spot of Central Greece, specializing in this fascinating water sport is situated 90 km to the north, at Raches bay, very close to Stylida port.

The estate is easily accessible 100 minutes’ drive from the airport and is situated by the 159th km of the main National Highway from Athens to Thessaloniki.

A car is recommended, given the fact that the estate is only some miles away from the surrounding urban areas of Arkitsa port, the village of Livanates to the south and the port of Agios Constantinos to the north. The famous holiday resort of Kamena Vourla with its bursting night life and nice beaches, is only some miles further away across the northern coastline. Also, given the fact that in the vicinity one can find archeological and middle age sites to visit, a transportation vehicle is a must in order to explore further these classical monumental beauties of central Greece.

Guests’ arrival and departure in and from the estate could be arranged on an individual basis depending on the flight schedules and their needs.

One has to note, that the estate is suitable for guests who are feeling comfortable being close to animals, particularly for families with children, as there is plenty of safe and protected space for them to play around and for those guests who like relative seclusion and being away from the turmoil and fuzz of busy hotels and packed touristic popular resorts. All in all, it is a dream’s place for agro tourism holiday funs.

This apartment is ideal for a family with 2-3 children or 4 adults. Arrangements could be made to accommodate 2 families with 2 children, in total.

Additional pricing information

Rates are subject to change until reservation is confirmed. In addition, rates are subject to seasonal demand and to seasonal factors. It may be that during summer, rates will be higher than the flat or indicative rate. During weekends, rates are higher as posted for a long weekend stay, not applying to guests who are staying for a week or more. For longer periods or more than five guests, special arrangements and pricing can be made, depending on the availability. Also, special events like bbqs meals could be arranged on a surcharge. As the property is quite secluded and in a rural area, a car is recommended. The property is especially friendly for children, but guests have to have in mind, that the nearest restaurants, shops and supermarkets, are 5-10 minutes drive away, the local health center is 20 minutes and an intergraded general hospital facility is half an hour drive away. There is a superintendent with his family, residing in the estate at the disposal of the guests requiring local and immediate help or assistance. However, the super does not speak any other language than greek and all inquiries and questions should be directed to the helping desk in Athens, which is open 09:00-21:00, Monday to Sunday and which can provide assistance and information in fluent english and german, in relation to your stay in the Country House or generally about Greece. Finally, we would like once more to bring to the attention of our guests that the estate hosts plenty of animals, including dogs which of course are kept in specially designated areas far from the apartment, but are set free during the night for security reasons from midnight to early in the morning in consultation with the super.
