A 500 + year old house carefully restored to preserve its character with beautiful lighting effects and traditional details. Right next to the water. A short walk to gorgeous swimming locations. A rare opportunity to stay in the heart of an unspoiled Greek village. At 750 sq. feet (70 sq. m.) it is the largest rental in the village.

The space

With meter thick walls, traditional stone floors throughout, antique furnishings and a teak kitchen installation, the house gives you comfort with atmosphere far beyond the standard Greek Holiday rental. It is an chance to experience a step back in time. Kastro itself is an absolutely unique example of a medieval Mediterranean Village and is beautifully preserved. You can walk to several exquisite swimming locations very close by and enjoy a handful of quiet, civilized restaurants and bars.

Guest access

The house is all yours to enjoy. Walk out on the balcony and view the island and the Aegean. Lounge and read, or log on to fast 7 mps wireless internet and download films or music, live chat with friends around the world and share the experience of the wonderful old house. Then stroll out to visit quiet restaurants or down to the water to swim in crystal blue waters.

Interaction with guests

My manager Maria will introduce you to the house, show you its many features and provide the wifi code. She'll show you how to best keep the house cool inside the one meter thick walls. A long time resident opt the island maria can tell you where to find everything you want around the island from necessities to luxuries.

Other things to note

Kastro is a wonderful little local community with small restaurants, art galleries and jewelers to visit. The locals take great pride in their village and for good reason. It is one of the best preserved examples of it's kind. There are ancient artifacts everywhere and a fascinating little museum only 30 yards from the house.

Nous nous sommes laissés charmer avec bonheur par le village, l'appartement et l'ìle. La personne qui s'occupe de nous accueillir a été merveilleuse. Elle a également contribué au très agréable déroulement de nos vacances. La maison est située au centre de Kastro, donc s'inscrit dans une ambiance d'architectures anciennes. C'est simplement magnifique. La situation géographique de l'appartement propose une animation de va et vient des habitants et des touristes devant la porte. Mais il y en a si peu que cela amène de la vie.
