the ideal holiday villa for a family gathering

  • 5 of 5

First Porto Heli in May was a really pleasant surprise The wild flowers were in full bloom especially the yellow gorse and mimosa trees in the green fields and olive groves, but the elegant ochra and terracotta colour villas the many lone Cyprus trees give one the feeling of being in Tuscany.

I came to visit the villa on yearly inspection trip, and it has all you expect for a very comfortable stay. the house is kept in perfect condition and is very clean with daily housekeeping and a cook if wished.

The pool is especially large for those who want to enjoy their swimming, and the upstairs bedrooms are spacious and have wonderful views.

the ground floor bedroom is very spacious also, so we found the house well designed and in excellent condition, with the gracious hosts living close by for insider tips.

i can highly recommend this staffed villa to anyone looking for a nice destination and a good quality villa

a few words about Porto Heli as a destination

Porto Heli has so much to offer like the ancient city lying submerged under only a meter of water, and so easy to visit with goggles or taking a diving tour. The many beaches in the area mean that there is no great congestion in the peak season, and its possible to find a quiet cove. the easy access to the many trendy restaurants and boutiques in only 10 minutes by shuttle boat make it a really ideal holiday destination.

All you could wish, everything you need

  • 5 of 5

Our family converged on the villa in Porto Heli from three continents - seven adults and two children, each with our expectations for this family reunion. The villa welcomed us with spacious, luminous rooms, a splendid pool with a view of the sea. There were even swings and a playhouse for the small ones. The owners were attentive and helpful, but always respectful of our privacy. We swam in the pool and in the sea, visited unique ancient sites, cruised on the sea, went scuba diving and every evening gathered in the kitchen and around the poolside table to review our delights of the day. This well-travelled family found many new pleasures and sights to savor. The villa and property were ideal, leaving us all to concentrate on renewing family ties in a setting which is congenial, practical and carefree. The region is world-class for history, food, boating and the people are kind and generous, starting with the owners. Heartily recommend spending time here with family and friends.

A Wonderful Stay for Our Families

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week with our five kids and another family. It was a lovely house, much better looking than the pictures suggest, with olive and fruit trees on manicured grounds. The compound is extremely well-kept and very close to beaches and the Kosta boat launch, where we would catch a water taxi or caique to the gorgeous island of Spetses. And we had wifi, a must for teenagers and working parents.

But the best part of staying here was the hospitality and care of the owners, Theodore and Tina. They helped us get a cook (the wonderful Elena) who made phenomenal meals, arranged a caique to take us around the island of Spetses (stopping at gorgeous coves to swim and eat lunch), and coordinated a van to take us to Epidavrus and Mycenae to see the archeological sites. We have never had such a wonderful stay in all of the Home Away and VRBO houses we have stayed in. We highly recommend coming here and have already to friends.

Our best holiday ever

  • 5 of 5

We had decided to have a family Reunion with relatives from all over and after meeting them in Athens we all went to Porto Heli to stay 10days. The weather was so sunny and warm and we just lapped the sun by the pool most days, but we did make a wonderful day trip by boat to Hydra which was such fun . The House was so beautiful and in execllent condition with comfortable bedrooms and a really big pool. Maria our concierge was such a help to arrange our shopping trips and we made some great day trips and saw the ancient theatre and Mykines. We really hope to return one day

Thankyou Rena for your 5* hospitality.

From the Owner

What captured us with this villa was the large private garden with the wide lawns that are ideal for children to run around safely and the privacy for sunbathing byt he large pool. The whole patio area with the large rattan armchairs is so cool and inviting, that you dont even want to leave. We love breakfast in the bright morning light and lunch in the shad eof the pergola to the chorus of the cicada. Even in the mild winter we playing card games and scrabble by the cosy log fire evenh the Central heating also nsures warm winter and spring breaks.

Activity and Interests


The beautiful Greek Riviera of the Peloponnese peninsular is favored by those seeking restful holidays away from the maddening crowds. Many Greek tycoons have built their holiday mansions in this area and its ideal for sailing or yachting and making short tours by boat or by car.

The villa is beautifully situated overlooking the Porto Heli Bay and Spetses, just 2 mins. walk to the nearest sandy beach.

Spetses by boat is 10 minutes and two euros one way, Hydra 15 euros one way, the house is 1 hour drive from Epidaurus and two to three hours from Athens ...

The sandy beach and sparkling sea provide the ideal escape for a relaxing holiday>

The specific location was chosen for the first Aman Resort in Europe. an amazing hotel called The Amanzoe Resort which, is only 10 minutes from the villa and offers a variety of unique spa treatmets to visitors.

Three quiet beaches of Costa, each with a different character and wonderful swimming, are close to the House.

One of the best sailing and surf schools is close to the villa - its under British management and well qualified.

- Many events are organized in the area : -

- 16 till 21 June 2015 is the Classic Yacht Race

- the famous "Armada" in September which collects the yachting set,

- to to the Spetses mini-Marathon usually 2nd week of October every year

- Theatrical and Ballet productions in Epidaurus Ancient Amphitheatre

- just ask us whats on

A pleasant trip of just 3 hours from Athens by car (187km) or by jetfoil from Piraeus will bring you to the serenity of this wooded paradise by the sea. The villa is directly opposite the island of Spetses, which is easily reachable 24 hours a day by water-taxis departing from the pier.

Note some distances to neighbouring areas for tours or excursions:

Nearest town --- Porto Heli 2kms

Nearest port – Costa 100m.

Nearest-Island - 20 mins. from Spetses , the cosmopolitan Island with many trendy shops and restaurants, clubs and cafes.

- 25 miles from Poros Island - so authentic with white cube houses and great local food and a Monaastery you can visit.

- 80 km from Nafplio ��� a beautiful lively seaside town and located in the famous wine growing area named Nemea - we suggest a day of wine tasting and gastronomy.

- 50 km from Ancient Epidaurus – famous even today for its acoustics as an open-air theatre - with many exceptional theatrical performances in summer with world renowned actors and ballet companies.

- 28 miles from Monemvasia a marvelous old medieval town that offers great local specialities at the local tavernas.

Note: we recommend that you take a local Kaiki motor yacht on a

day excursion that leaves from Portoheli or Costa and sails for

Monemvasia ! that is a great way to see it without driving in summer


- There are many ancient archaeolical sites of worldwide importance in the area waiting your visit. Eg Mykines is of worldwide historical importance as it was the centre of the Mycaenean civilization and there are the Royal graves and a monumental museum that you can visit,

then there is the centre of the Byzantine world at Mystra,, etc
