We have just got back from Stelios' house, where we had spent beautiful vacation. The houses are gorgeous, carefully and handsomely decorated - always with a pinch of nature brought inside, as can be seen in the photos, perfectly positioned, overlooking the vast horizon, facing directly the sea. Huge terrace, just us, skyline and shades of the deep blue :-) It is just close enough to the town of Karysos – 5 min by car, yet isolated from all of the hustle and noise. Since we were travelling with the family, it was very important for us that the property is in proximity of town, so that everything we need is in a close range.There are beautiful beaches nearby, the closest one is just 10 min walk. Sandy Buros beach is just 5 min by car, Cavos beach also. We enjoyed our morning walks around, being lost in the winding roads that curve all around, morning coffies on the upper bedroom terrace or enjoying capuccinos in some of the local Karystos cafes. The most beautiful thing is that we felt like being at our own place, at our own home, part of the community of people who live here, not like some sort of isolated turists in stuffed resort. Here, you get the feeling of being completely free. The house is very clean, comfortable, large, airy, full of light - with big glass window-walls , well equipped with everything one needs... It is very quiet, with pleasant temperature – there is fresh breeze in the evening and during the night.
This house and the area gave us some kind of preview of how the Cyclades, which are just close, look like, for some future excursions. Stelios and his father were extremely helpful, incredible people, very warm and always at hand, yet we had complete privacy, no one was interfering with our stay. Also, Stelios took his valuable time to write the whole itinerary for us of the whole area, drawing our attention to various interesting places and magnificent, scenic road routes around.
Altogether, this was a perfect place to stay, great hosts and wonderful memories!
