Located at 500 meters from the village of Tholaria, the House lies on a mull surrounded by hills. It nests on a land in terraces with its vineyard and vegetable garden. The house is entirely self-sustaining, relying on solar power, winter-rain water storage and traditional farming methods. The dirt path leading to the village is a 7minutes walk and the house can be accessed by car at a low pace.
It's the departing point for many beautiful hicking tracks.
New in 2015: Following feedback from our guests last Summer, all rooms now have effective mosquito nets in the windows. We have also installed a mini-fridge in this double room.
This double room has independent access, an en-suite bathroom and a private balcony with a view on the sea. There is a small fridge in the room.
The cleaning fee includes a full clean of the room at the end of your stay, or once a week, for stays of ten days or more. Additional room service can be added during your stay, at a surcharge.
Breakfast can be added (5€/person), as well as organic meals, concocted with the vegetables from the garden and local products.
The house is animal and child-friendly. Among our permanent residents are a dog, a sheep and many cats.
It is surrounded by a vast garden, with a lot of vegetation, including a big vegetable garden and a pizza oven in the yard.

Other things to note
Due to the fact that the house runs on natural energy, certain modern facilities are limited. This means no hairdryer, no TV, no internet, no bath-tubs nor swimming-pool: water comes only from the rain in the Winter. But not to worry, there is hot water!
The house relies on renewable energy and its own water reserves. This means that a few basic house rules must be observed:
- Be mindful of your water consumption.
- Be mindful of your energy consumption. Switch off lights and electrical appliances when not in use.
- Please no not throw anything in the toilet. Use the bin provided. This applies everywhere in Greece.
- Like most places in Greece, the tap water is not drinkable.
