About the property

Set in a quiet, peaceful, unspoilt area - ideal for swimming and walking

The house is set in its own olive grove on a quiet hillside overlooking the sea. This is a newly built property designed to be light and airy but constructed in traditional stone style to keep cool in the summer. The upstairs is large, open and spacious with a kitchen, a dining area and a seating area around the log fireplace. The large balcony has stunning sea views.

The two bathrooms and the two large bedrooms are on the ground floor with French windows opening onto a stone terrace under arches. There is an extensive olive grove behind the house (including a swing) so this a great place for children.

A secluded beach is a 10 minute walk along a track adjoining the property while the seaside village of Livadi is a 20 minute walk (or 5 minute drive). The rear of the house has beautiful views of the Mount Parnon range so this is an excellent base for a walking or birdwatching holiday. Arkadia is a very traditional part of Greece and the local villages are well worth visiting.

Local Area: The house is a short walk to a secluded beach down a quiet track adjoining the property. Alternatively a 5 minute drive takes you to the unspoilt, seaside village of Livadi which has two good tavernas.

Although there is a regular bus direct to/from Athens, a car is recommended for getting around the area.

The larger towns of Leonidion and Tyros offer shops, banks etc and are both a 15 minute drive away - Tyros to the North, Leonidion to the South. There are several very traditional villages nearby which are well worth a visit.

This is one of the most unspoilt parts of Greece and has a variety of scenery from quiet pebbly beaches to spectacular mountain walks (the Mount Parnon range overlooks the house). This makes it especially suitable for those who enjoy walking or birdwatching but will also suit visitors who just want to relax on a quiet beach.

This property is ideal for those who want to get away from it all and who would like to see a very traditional part of Greece.

Other facilities and services: The owners will arrange a 'meet and greet' and if required can do a basic shop before your arrival so that essential foodstuffs are waiting for you (just let us know what you need). An information pack is provided with details of local amenities including maps of walks in the area. Beach towels, beach mats, lilos, board games, books etc are all available in the house for the use of guests. Please note that TV reception is very poor in this area but there is a collection of DVDs and guests are invited to bring their own favourite DVDs.

A great base for sightseeing: The location of this house in Arcadia makes it a perfect base for sightseeing. Many popular attractions can easily be visited in a day trip from the house including Mycenae, Nafplion, Nemea, Corinth, Mystra, Monemvassia and many lesser known sites such Megalopolis, Lerna, Tyrinis and Yeraki (the owners, Nigel and Wendy will be pleased to advise). A little further away but also accessible from the house are the world famous theatre of Epidavros, Olympia (home of the Olympic Games) and Nestor's Palace.

Car: recommended

Livadi is nestled on one of the last unspoilt pieces of coastline in Greece. The area is not traversed by any major roads and no one comes through here on there way to anywhere else. You do not need to battle through crowds on to a ferry, or wait for a table at the taverna, or try to find a quiet spot on the white pebble beaches. This is Greece as it was. Where donkeys carry the seasonal crops; olives, carobs, and oranges. Where the only sound is the birdsong and the wind in the trees. Where the mountains run to the sea and both change colour as the sun touches them giving us a new view every moment. This is an ideal spot for someone looking for peace and light and air and who wants to to see traditional, unspoilt Greece. The village is a great base for mountain walks and is a short walk down a track to a quiet stretch of coastline with excellent beaches. Livadi is midway between and 15 minutes' drive from the larger towns of Leonidion and Tyros.

About James Hordern

I live in London, working for a Global Investment Bank and was looking for a peaceful retreat

Why James Hordern chose Tiros

Livadi is in a fantastic location that offers both seclusion, beautiful countryside and some excellent local food and drink.

What makes this house unique

Close to the sea, 10 minutes drive in both directions to the nearest time. Wonderful Olive Grove attached to the house and only 5 minutes walk to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Better than the photos. James is a super host and very responsive. Evanthough we were last minute he was willing to accommodate us. Quiet surroundings and comfortable bed. Our host brought us fresh bread twice and oranges for fresh squeeze! We fell in love with the area. We will definitely be back and would recommend this rental to anyone.

Schönes Haus mit tollem Blick in ruhiger Lage

  • 4 of 5

Das Haus liegt am Hang mit Blick auf das Meer. Balkon und Terrasse gehen nach Osten, alle Zimmer sind klimatisiert und die Fenster mit Fensterläden ausgestattet. Die Ausstattung ist sehr gut und sehr viel, nicht immer alles sauber, was in den Küchenschränken steht. Zum Strand sind es die angegebenen 10 Minuten Fußweg, zuerst über einen kleinen Pfad neben dem Haus, dann eine kleine Straße. Das Wasser war sehr klar, so dass man gut schnorcheln kann. Livadi ist ein winziger Ort mit 2 Tavernen und einer Strandbar. Wir hatten eine sehr schöne Woche dort.

Awesome time in this calm appartment!

  • 5 of 5

It is really a great appartment with lots of space and a good kitchen that we used a lot. We should mention luxuries like the small herb garden, which provided us with fresh thyme. Minor issues were that the shower head needs some fixing.

But to keep it short. We can definetly recommend it!
