Swallows Nest is a small traditional village house that combines old-style Greek character with real comfort. Authentic, stylish and unique, it's lovingly furnished with vintage pieces, handwoven textiles and original art, and lots of books. In a walled olive-grove on the mountainside, west-facing with views down to beautiful Lourdas Bay, it's only a 20 minute walk to the nearest beach, and close to the village's great tavernas. Or you can just enjoy the seclusion of a lovely romantic hideaway.

This wonderful house suited our need to be separate from other people but close enough to cafes & restaurants. The house was clean and a joy to stay in. Liz was great with all her communication and was very helpful.
