About the property

5 bedroom, 4 bathroom, on the beach

Nafpaktos. Situated on the north shore of the Corinthian gulf, it is one of Greece's most naturally beautiful locations. The landscape combines both mountainous terrain covered in rich vegetation on the north side, and to the south, a long coastal shore boasting numerous amazing shallow-water beaches with turquoise-blue waters. As if this was not enough, the area is surrounded and bound by ancient history. The city of Nafpaktos itself has a long history leading back to before the ancient Peloponnesian wars, and its castle-fortress is one of the best preserved in Greece. A plethora of historical sites surround this area at every step, almost towards any direction. Only a few kilometers to the east, up in the mountains lie the ruins of the ancient temple of Delphi. The oracle that presided there in ancient times was considered the most important in all of classical Greek history, and visiting is a ''must'' even in modern times...

Villa Thalassa & Anemos which is comprised of the home Thalassa on the ground level, and the home Anemos on the upper level (rented together as one), is located right on the beach, 10 meters from the sea, on one of the best points within Skaloma village. It offers its guests total relaxation in a traditionally restored village setting, boasting a magnificent view of the sea with the backdrop of the Peloponnesian mountains.

The villa was designed with large groups and families with children in mind, aesthetically and practically speaking. The large out-door lawn garden and patio with dining table are perfect for relaxing while keeping one eye on the kids playing outside, and the other on the mesmerizing view. The fact that the beach is 10 meters away makes the convenience of taking a dip in the clear waters literally whenever you feel like it irresistible!

Home Thalassa on the ground-level boasts 1 master bedroom, 1 single/semi double bedroom, and a child-favorite loft with two single beds. The open-plan living room with fireplace has a wonderful garden-sea view along with the indoor dining area suitable for 6+2 persons, and a fully equipped kitchen awaits family cooking. The whole home’s style is simple but stylish, encouraging serenity and relaxation.

Home Anemos’s décor and style continues with the aura of relaxation on the upper level. The home has 2 large bedrooms, an open-plan living room, also with a fireplace, an indoor dining area for 4+2 persons, and a fully equipped kitchen waiting to be used while cooking with local ingredients. Finally, this home’s perk is a lovely balcony surrounded by lush vegetation on one side, and a marvelous sea view of the other.

If the calm village setting is not your cup of tea, you have had your fill of kayaking (provided at the villa), and have tried all the local taverns, you are in for a real treat, as the surrounding area is one of the more intriguing in Greece. Within a comfortable driving range you can find yourself dinning at a variety of fresh fish restaurants in the neo-classical village of Galaxidi, walking through the old fortified Venetian harbor of Nafpaktos, or marveling at the ruins of ancient Olympia or the Temple of Delfi. Feel like a change of scenery? The beautiful renowned mountain-village of Arachova is an hour’s drive away. The variety of historical and cultural attractions in the area is staggering. Thus, take your pick, choose your style, and begin your vacation in Nafpaktos!

Skaloma- the best of Greece

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect. The house is on the sea shore, backed by green mountains. The sea was perfect for swimming, the view fabulous, the Korinth golf, the Peloponnese across the golf, the Rio-Antirio bridge.

The house is very spacious, we were 8 but it could accommodate more family members. There is a lot of common space and enough privacy for everybody. The description was exact but what we found was better. Perfectly organized and maintained. The owners, Zeta and Kostas were very welcoming and very friendly.

We swam a lot, traveled to Nafpactos, Galaxidy and Delphi, all very nice and interesting and drove to a show in Patras Roman Odeon.

We ate very well. The restaurants recommended by the owner were very good, and the restaurant of Maria Loy with an innovative touch in the Nafpactos port is also worth a recommendation. We also liked the traditional taverns in the whole region and the lunch menu of fried anchovies (gavros) and calamari in the beach bar of Skaloma. We also cooked at home and the supper equipped kitchen made thinks easy.

We definitely recommend the villa to all vacation lovers.

Very confortable house, direct on the beach

  • 4 of 5

Confortable house, very clean and well equiped.

Direct access to the sea, nice beach with clear water in a typical greek bay.

The owners were really charming and gave us a warmfull welcome.

A lot of simple and sympathical taverns 2km arround.

Mostly greek tourists, very few foreigners, gives a typical and unforgettable atmosphere.

The house is ideal for 11-12 people.

There is a street between the garden and the sea, with low trafic. Several merchants (fruits, vegetables, ice, bread) are passing by all day long, with good price and quality: you don't need need your car.

There is a sea canoe (2 places), great for parents and teenagers.

Delphes is just 1 hour from here: we had a great day-trip, visiting the site in the morning (a must!), having lunch in the incredible ski-station Anchova, discovering the beautiful Monsatery Osios Loukas, and have a last promenade and excellent seafood on the nice little port of Galaxidi.

Greece at its best

  • 5 of 5

A lovely house, in its own garden but almost on the beach, with marvellous views over the Gulf of Corinth to the mountains opposite. Thalassa and Anemos are spacious, clean and comfortable, and equipped with everything needed to make a holiday enjoyable. Kostas and Zeta couldn't be more helpful and friendly. Skaloma is peaceful and beautiful. There are excellent traditional tavernas a few minutes drive away, as well as good supermarkets and a fabulous bakery. For anyone not wanting to leave the village, most food items can be bought from mobile bakers/fruiterers etc. who pass right by the front of the house on a regular basis. For the more energetic, there are lots of ancient sites to visit - Delphi and Olympia to name but two. The drive from Athens was very straightforward, the weather was perfect, everyone was extremely friendly, we didn't want to come home after our ten day stay, would thoroughly recommend this property and can't wait to return!

wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful villa with a big garden, fully accommodated, next to the sea in a relaxing bay. Friendly people ready to provide a good customer service.

Close to the town of Nafpactos you have the opportunity for night life.

We spent two months there. I definitely recommend it for vacation.
