In one simple sentence. FANTASTIC FROM START TO FINISH.
Muy bien todo, un sitio fantastico.
This villa has everything. We were a group of 7 adults and rented both levels. The view from the upper level is fantastic! Most our time here was spent sitting on the balcony looking out at the water. There is also a little balcony off each bedroom with a nice view of the hills. It was so nice having a kitchen and washing machine for clothes. The owners are so welcoming and kind and can provide everything you can think of. I had mentioned how much I love green figs and they had some waiting for us on arrival in addition to their homemade preserves.
Best of all, the location! Did I mention the fantastic view? Short walking distance to a beautiful family beach and taverna. Short drive from Athens airport and Athens Metro. Easy day trips to Sounion, Ancient Corinth, Napflion, Epidavros, and Poros...just to name a few.
We absolutely would stay here again and hope to return soon!
Un appartement agréable et spacieux. Dimitris et sa femme sont très accueillants et disponibles pour toute question. Dimitris est venu nous chercher à l'aéroport et nous y conduire. La petite plage juste à côté est très agréable et peu visitée, spécialement en avril.
Seul petit bémol : la voiture louée ne fut pas à la hauteur de nos espérances. Mais à part ça, nous avons passé un excellent séjour. Nous recommandons !
Together with our friends from Chicago we spent a wonderful holiday here! It was in August 2015.
This is a little and quiet place.
The house is comfortable and clean,really near the sea. Just five minutes and you are there!
Our owner, Dimitry, is nice and well-educated person. He was very kind to us, helped us with everything.
I should recommend this prorerty to all my friends with pleasure!
If we again will be in Greece to relax, we are going to live exactly here.Thanks awfully, Dimitry!
Вместе с нашими друзьями мы провели здесь чудесный отпуск в августе 2015 !
Это маленькое и тихое место.
Удобный и чистый дом, который находится очень недалеко от моря. Пять минут и вы там.
Хозяин дома, Димитрий, - прекрасный , интеллигентный человек. Он был очень добр к нам, помогал во всем.
Я с удовольствием рекомендую своим друзьям этот дом!
Если мы снова будем отдыхать в Греции, будем жить именно здесь.
Огромное спасибо, Димитрий!
The villa is 100 meters from sea, really nice view and the villa itself was really nice and clean, with modern interior. Really friendly and helpful owners.

This is the ONLY house to stay at if you are going to Porto Rafti. The view is out of this world. The short stroll to the beach is filled with lovely neighbors waving and saying good morning. There are NO words to describe how crystal clear and clean is the sea. The temperature of the water is perfect the water is perfect...the view... unbelievable. We went swimming 3 times a day. We swam to a cave which seems wicked far away but it was an easy lovely swim. The house is immaculately clean! There was NOT a spot of dirt or dust on anything. This house is extremely well equipped kitchen, lovely bathroom, fantastic living room with great TV. The beds are extremely comfortable and even more important is the pillows and they too were perfect.
The owner, Demitri, could NOT be Better even if he tried. He had food in the house and a bottle of wine. He drove around to show us where to buy everything, he made sure that all our needs and desires were met. It was as if we were living a dream. I never expected to have such a wonderful time or to love this house and the owners so much. It felt like we knew them forever and we had just met.
If you have kids it's good and if you do not it's good, there are 3 beaches near the house. Two are sandy and the kids can play in the sand. There is also music at night and places to eat. So if you like quiet the house is in a quiet area if you want noise , then its just a little walk away. At the house all you hear is quiet and the water. Shopping is easy and NOT expensive and very close by. We found some wonderful sales and bought new swim wear and shoes. We bought the BEST fruit ever everyday and meat.
It is close to the airport and to the highway so traveling was easy. We took the Metro to Athens which was easy and fast. IT's a perfect location, perfect sea, perfect house.
This is the perfect vacation house !!!
