The four homely houses are arranged nicely and well-spaced on a hill top overlooking Karistos, the Aegean Sea, surrounding fields, olive plantages and alleys. The result is a really stunning 180° view over the complete azure gulf and an easing calmness.
The owner was always very friendly and forthcoming and provided us with a lot really helpful advice. He also brought some fresh eggs for our breakfast. He took it very friendly and calmly, when we had to tell him that our 3 year old nephew had damaged a plastic cover in the fridge, he did not charge us, and just told us he will fix it.
Sound planning, craftsmanship and building are observable in many details of the cottage. A nice spacious living room with small but practical lounge, dining table, kitchenette and carmine are located on the upper floor. The cottage interior is held in taste full dark wood and stone floors. Another plus is the kitchenette. It is equipped for some real cooking on two hot plates and a small oven. There is a good set of dishes, pans, cutlery and even some basic spices. Additionally you will find a toaster and orange juice press. What more can you desire for a nice breakfast? Moreover there’s a small room with washing machine.
I liked the really spacious terrace best. Half of it is covered with a big sun roof. It shade is invaluable in the hot mediterranian sun. Thus sitting outside day or night with a nice warm breeze, enjoying the view over the complete gulf, is a very relaxing exercise indeed. It is even better with a glass of cool beer or wine. ;-)
The ground floor below provides two well-proportioned bed rooms with spacious cupboards, a small bath room with a shower and a big mirror over the washing basin, and a smaller terrace with sun roof and some olive trees. As a consequence of the two floor arrangement, the thick walls, and sun roofs especially the lower levels are comfortably cool. This is quite helpful to get a good night’s sleep in hot climate.
I found the place very much to my liking and highly recommend it to chill out. The nearby town offers a good choice of inns and also a good diving center.
