Poros is a popular holiday resort. The mild climate assures a comfortable stay. The beautiful beaches are among the best on the island and are ideal for families and seniors. The Poros Beach House is a traditional house with two bedrooms (one air conditioned), a fully equipped kitchen and toilet with bath tube. It can comfortably accommodate four guests. A shady garden in the back is an ideal setting for lunch, while the front garden has views to the sea. The house is only 5 meters from the beach.

Small but perfect

  • 5 of 5

I recently spent a week here with my three friends.The little house was perfectly suited to our needs.The beds were comfy and the kitchen very well equipped.The outside seating area was delightful and we four ladies spent many an evening sharing a bottle( or more )of wine under the vine leaves.Just perfect.There are several tavernas,all within walking distance selling a good variety of fish and excellent Greek food and wine.The pool, 100 metres away was a bonus.Good traditional food served here too.We would swim here and then cross the road for a dip in the sea.Poros is delightful and I would probably return, hopefully in the not too distant future.Beach house may be small but remember, nice things come in small packages!!

Pretty, well-equipped little house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This little house was perfect for us. It had everything we needed for our stay and Joanna kindly provided a cot for our nearly-2 year old. She was really kind and attentive and it was great to have so much local knowledge on hand! Poros is a lovely, friendly, quiet town and we were very happy staying put there for 2 weeks-the swimming from the beaches is fantastic and it was really good to have the swimming pool nearly next door. You can get everything you need in the great selection of shops and there are plenty of choices for meals out, most of the tavernas will do takeaways too.

We would definitely recommend Joanna's house to people looking for a relaxing break by the sea-it's small but perfectly formed!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my wife stayed at this property for more than 3 weeks in September and we really got addicted to this beautiful place. It provides in everything you need for a relaxing holiday far away from the noisy tourism. From our breakfast table we overlooked the Ionian Sea just 20 yards in front of us. Beach, shops, swimming pool, restaurants, supermarkets: it is all there within a few steps away. So the first week we completely ran our desire to explore more off the Island and we stayed day after day at this cozy place without twiddling our thumbs. Above all there is always the sympathetic and helpful attendance of Ioanna. She provides you with all kind off recommendations and suggestions you need and we really felt us at home and at ease. We have the habit to never visit the same place for our summer holidays, but with this amazing place it might be different.

Ideal location

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time my family and myself have stayed at this property, after our first stay in 2013 we fell in love with the place and booked the next years break almost immediately upon returning home,our first taste of Poros was 23 years ago and it hasn't changed that much in all that time.

it has a very laid back feel, a little slice of Greek life.

great local restaurants,bars,supermarkets and shops are a stroll away, the house is compact but with all the comforts you would need, the owner Joanna is a very warm hospitable lady who just wants to make your holiday as pleasurable as possible.

this house is a perfect base for exploring the island,a car is a must for exploring further afield but you could quite easily spend your days on the clean (not very busy) beach and have a real chill out,

for the price I don't think you could find such a property so close to the beach in such a great location.

Again I would not hesitate to recommend this property to friends and family

A Place of Beauty

  • 4 of 5

A fantastic location only across the road from Poros beach with small Tavernas either side that were so reasonably priced, we ate out all the time.

The pace of life, cleanliness, friendliness and climate make this a truly relaxing holiday and we all felt totally chilled out after just one week there.

Ioanna was the perfect hostess, available as required for local knowledge and made sure we had everything we needed.

We would definitely return for another holiday.

quaint little house in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful little house for two weeks in August 2013,My wife,Myself and our two sons (13 and 18 years old), the house was perfect for us, it is compact but everything we needed was there,a shaded garden to the rear and a patio to the front, the beach is literally ten steps from the house which is very clean and well looked after, the owner Ioanna lives in an adjoining house at the front and was very attentive to our needs, as another reviewer said not intrusive but always willing to help she cooked us a wonderful meal one evening and bought us local delicacies to try,there was a slight language barrier but she was very warm and hospitable, a genuine caring host.

the holiday was very relaxing, it was the second time we have stayed in poros and as soon as we arrived back home we knew we would return the next year (which we have already booked)

Poros itself is quiet but with quite a few decent restaurants to choose from and a couple of small supermarkets within walking distance.

we hired a car, which is a must to explore this beautiful island there is so much to see, we also hired a boat and spent a wonderful day on our own secluded beach,which was amazing, if you are looking for relaxation and stunning scenery Kefalonia is for you and Poros is the perfect base.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone in search of peace and tranquility at a very competitive price

Location

Nearest Airport
30 Kilometres
Kefalonia Airport
Nearest Ferry
500 Metres
Poros Port

Poros is a picturesque small town located in the municipal unit of Eleios-Pronnoi, some 40 km SE of Argostoli, 28 km SE of Sami and 12 km NE of Skala, in the south east of Cephalonia.

Poros is effectively divided into three parts. Poros port, with its couple of tavernas and bars, connects the island with Kyllini on the Peloponnese area of mainland Greece via regular year-round ferry service. During the summer months a ferry may connect Poros with Zakynthos and a couple of tourist caiques offer cruises to Ithaca and the Blue Caves of Zakynthos. The harbour is also home to the local fishing boats which supply the area with fresh fish.

Separated from Poros port by a small hillock lies the town beach, backed by a taverna-fringed square and main services: bank, chemist (pharmacy), doctor’s surgery, post office, police station and local shops. More tavernas and bars lie along the award-winning 'Blue Flag' beach, Aragia, separated from the centre of Poros by the Vohinas river.

The coastline facing Ithaca, is one of the last refuges of the endangered Mediterranean Monk Seal (Monachus monachus).

Just out of the Poros gorge a rough vehicular track leads to the Atros monastery, the oldest on Cephalonia, with impressive views across Poros. Further along is another track leading to the Mycenaean tomb of Tzanata.
