About the property

Genuine comfort and tranquillity for all seasons in exceptional landmark

Three (3) VILLAS are available for rent at the Montofoli Wine Estate, each with its own unique character, The DOVECOT, The RED HOUSE and The BELVEDERE. All three have access to the POOL.

All the villas are fully air-conditioned and include exclusive amenities such as WIRELESS INTERNET inside and outside, covered parking, satellite/cable television, an espresso machine, a safe, a stereo system, a DVD Player and DVD Library, BBQ equipment, as well as a 24-hour SERVICE for individual needs and requests.

Local delicacies are offered upon your arrival.


The Dovecot at the Montofoli Estate is a unique stone-built VILLA that provides the perfect setting for relaxing and memorable moments with family or friends. Its 65 sqm VERANDA, is ideal as an all-day living space during the summer, with a 360 panoramic VIEW TO THE SEA, where guests can enjoy their meals, or relax with a book or a portable device in the serene natural silence.

The ‘dovecot’ BEDROOM is an actual dovecot, where doves used to be bred back in the 1900s. This is a unique feature that can rarely be found elsewhere in accommodation settings, not only in the region but all over Greece.

Below the main veranda, a spacious outdoor living room with large comfortable pillows offers a private corner for complete relaxation.

The tall wooden-beam ceiling in the interior of the Dovecot creates a sense of grandeur, and the villa is carefully decorated with rare pieces of antique and modern art. The famous white Penteli marble lines the kitchen and the two BATHROOMS that are equipped with luxury toiletries.

The Villa is overflowing with history and tradition that enchants guests as they learn it and experience it during their stay.


The Red House combines comfort with a sense of luxury. The villa is surrounded by VERANDAS and TERRACES where guests can enjoy their meals, a long-drink in the afternoon, some time for relaxation with a book or a portable device, or endless playtime with the children.

The terrace outside the kitchen offers complete privacy and features a large stone-table made from the world-famous Karystian slate. A variety of indigenous trees and flowers enrich the scenery, and the blush, deep red colour of the walls as well as the delightful VIEW TO THE SEA, make this the perfect all-day living space during the summer.

The eastern VERANDA overlooks the lawn, an ideal space where children can play under limited supervision. The interior is carefully decorated with exceptional pieces of traditional and modern design, and allows for plenty of natural light throughout the day. The Red House is a unique example of traditional greek architecture of the 19th century, which is of special interest to guests who want to combine their accommodation with a genuine experience of the local culture.


The Belvedere is a charming Villa with a modern outlook and a distinct style of its own. Guests can enjoy spectacular VIEWS to the sea and the mountain from its two TERRACES that combine comfort and elegance. Two dining areas and a cosy outdoor living room offer several options for maximum enjoyment and relaxation throughout the day.

The main interior space is ample with an open kitchen and a living room that receive plenty of natural light during the day. The bedrooms are spacious and warm with prototype closets built on the wall that provide abundant space for the arrangement of personal belongings.


The Montofoli Estate is a place of great importance since 400 BC.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We rented the Belvedere for almost 2 weeks. It was a very relaxing holiday. We enjoyed the house and the pool a lot. The house has 2 bedrooms. If needed a 5th person could sleep on the couch. There is a washing machine and dishwasher, so really relaxing. There is a oven and a microwave. And all you tools you need to cook a good meal. However there are plenty of restaurants in the neighborhood so it's better to go out for lunch or dinner. The pool is lovely, cleaned every day. Marianne is really good host and willing to tell you all you want to know about the location and it's attractions. Marianne and her husband really made our stay great with a some home made cookies and lovely desert wine made at the estate. When we arrived all kind of food was available to start our first day, you feel right away very welcome. The belvedere house has a very large outside terrace. It is covered so that you can sit outside without burning in the sun. It also helps to sit outside when the wind is very hard. The pool was nice, around 30deg every day. It is covered when there is nobody to prevent small kids from dropping in. There are a lot of small beaches in the surroundings, let's say 20-30 min drive. The estate is fenced. Every house has a parking spot. The estate is not safe for very small kids to walk around alone due to trip hazards. Overall: we loved it, we loved Marianne's help and the Greek food and sunshine !!

KARYSTOS is an ancient port in the south tip of the island of EVIA, and due to its proximity to Athens and its particular morphology, it served as one of the most important ports of the time.

In its recent history, it has been the leading producer of a famous type of slate, the ‘Karystian Plaka,’ which has travelled the world to be used in state-of-the-art constructions of great importance and aesthetic value.

Today, Karystos is a popular destination for visitors, who, at a very short distance from Athens, enjoy the beauty and unique natural atmosphere of a GREEK ISLAND with over 300 days of sunshine a year.

The town of Karystos, which is at a 20 minutes walking distance from the Montofoli Estate, is extremely lively throughout the year and offers a variety of opportunities for leisure: excellent GREEK FOOD in the local TAVERNAS, sophisticated modern cuisine in posh, elegant, new-style restaurants, numerous cosy cafes with local delicacies, ‘informed’ bars and nightclubs, etc., in its extensive, dazzling coastline.

In the center of town, an open-air movie theatre features the latest movie releases of the year, and the schedule changes every day.

Due to its long history, Karystos presents a rich ARCHAEOLOGICAL interest. The Montofoli Estate is itself a renowned archaeological site, where ancient findings are displayed on site. A guided tour at the Arhaeological Museum of Karystos, reveals much of the incredible past of the area that leaves visitors in awe.

Another aspect that sets the area apart, is its magnificent natural environment:

Along the coast, endless sandy BEACHES with crystal-clear waters are a favourite everyday summer destination. Over 30 beaches offer a wide choice between organized settings with various water sports or others with complete privacy.

Picturesque, unspoiled VILLAGES surrounding the town of Karystos, high on the mountain, offer unlimited ground for exploration. The area has also been mapped into short or longer WALKING TRAILS of immense natural beauty.

A typical attraction of the greater area of Karystos are the mysterious DRAKOSPITA (‘dragon houses’ in its literal sense) because their very construction with enormous pieces of stone, at a time with limited technological means, remains a mystery yet today.

One of the most beautiful gorges in Greece, the Dimosaris GORGE that ends on a beach, can be descended in 4,5 hours and is one of the best choices for an all-day excursion and pic nic.

Other typical activities in the area include scuba diving, traditional yoga, hiking and mountain biking.

Guests at the Montofoli Estate Villas receive a COMPLETE GUIDE for the area with suggested activities and popular attractions, that are certain to make their stay delightful and unforgettable.

Last but not least, Karystos has its own HOSPITAL and there is always a pharmacy on duty 24 hours a day.
