We spent a weekend at this fantastic three floor modern house in the area of Aetos Karistou just a an hour ferry ride from Athens.
Christos, who is the father of Stelios and who is very accomodating and helpful was waiting for us. He builded this condominium and the one next door with a very keen eye for modern architecture and modern interior design.
The house is great for a family of up to six people or for two couples.
The middle floor is where the kitchen and the dinning area is. The living room is out in the veranda where you have really beautiful view of the sea.
The top floor is one bedroom with another big veranda and the lower floor has two rooms attached to each other that can accommodate up to four people. There is another shaded veranda here leading to a garden with plants that you find in arid areas.
Outside from the beautiful, serene house which is great for relaxation, you can either walk for either ten minutes or take the car and go down to the beach. Actually there are more than ten beautiful beaches to chose from with some small ones, where you are the only person on it.
There are a lot of things to do around the area as well. Karistos is a small beautiful city just a 10 minute car ride away, that reminds me of bygone images of a Greece that belong to the 70s.
Then you get beautiful hikes around mount Ochi with its ancient sites and it's beautiful green gorge. From the house you can also explore the villagges of Cavo D'oro with the noumerous sandy beaches along the way.
We will definately come here again, the area is so interesting, such a close distance from Athens, making it ideal for small weekend escapes or for longer vacation. On top of this, having such a nice relaxing house with good people as owners makes it a great recipe for an enjoyable stay...!!!
