A beautiful, very well furnished & equipped to suit all our needs, In a rural & quiet area

  • 5 of 5

I don't want to recommend Helena's home as I want it to be always available for me!!!!!. The house was so welcoming, equipped with everything to provide a relaxing, no stress holiday. There were 4 mountain bikes, shady terraces if you have elderly or small children. We were not overlooked and no noisy bars. Great if you enjoy bird watching, which we do. Helena was on hand for any problems, even arranged a taxi from the train station. To say we will return again & again should tell you all how wonderful this house is.

A welcoming house in a quiet setting

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a relaxing stay at Helena's house, which was very clean and well equipped. We loved the citrus trees in the large garden! Helena was very generous in providing us with information and also with lots of food in the fridge on our arrival. All the essentials were there, and she had also kindly left Easter chocolate and eggs for our children to enjoy. We had a slight problem with the hot water supply, but Helena very quickly sorted it out. The location was excellent for visiting various places in Greece, including Ancient Corinth, Nemea, and Athens (just over an hour by train). We could walk to the local shop and tavern (5 minutes), and it was a short drive or cycle into the town, where there is a good selection of shops and restaurants. We would recommend having a car.

Sehr schönes und gut ausgestattetes Ferienhaus in guter Lage und mit sehr freundlicher Vermieterin

  • 5 of 5

Mit einer kleinen Freundesgruppe haben wir auf dem Peleponnes ein ruhig gelegenes Domizil mit drei Schlafzimmern und einer vernünftigen Anbindung an das Straßennetz gesucht, von dem aus sowohl der Abstecher an den Strand als auch Touren zu den antiken Stätten gut möglich sein sollten. Genau das haben wir in diesem schönen und vollständig ausgestattetem Ferienhaus auch gefunden. Darüber hinaus wurden wir von der überaus freundlichen Vermieterin sehr gastfreundlich empfangen und am Anreisetag sogar mit einigen Leckereien und Getränken versorgt, so dass wir uns vom ersten Augenblick an im Urlaub befanden und schon den ersten Abend gut genießen konnten.

Die Lage des Hauses bietet einerseits die gewünschte Ruhe, andererseits ermöglicht die recht gute Anbindung an die Autobahnen in Richtung Patras und Tripolis die Erkundung zahlreicher antiker Stätten und schöner Landschaften auf der nordöstlichen Hälfte des Peleponnes in vernünftiger Fahrtzeit. Mit Auto oder Fahrrad gelangt man in wenigen Minuten zu einem Kiesstrand mit sehr sauberem Wasser. Fußläufig in ca. 10 Minuten zu erreichen sind einige nette Tavernen, in denen man die Tage angenehm ausklingen lassen kann.

Für unsere Zwecke war dieses Haus also eine außerordentliche gute Wahl, wir können es sehr guten Gewissens weiterempfehlen.

Ein sehr empfehlenswertes Ferienhaus

  • 5 of 5

Wir wurden von der Vermieterin freundlichst empfangen, und -- was wir gar nicht erwartet hatten -- der Kühlschrank war bestückt, es gab eine Menge Vorräte und sogar eine sehr gute Flasche Rotwein wartete auf uns. Das Haus war sehr sauber und alles funktionierte, wie im Prospekt angegeben. Wir haben selten so ein gutes Ferienhaus gehabt. Die Lage inmitten von Orangengärten und Olivenhainen ist in keiner Weise spektakulär, aber das hatten wir uns auch nicht vorgestellt. Doch wenn man an den berühmten Stätten des klassischen Griechendland interessiert ist, dann ist die Lage für Tagesfahrten nach Archäa Korinthos, Mykene, Epidavros, Archäa Nemea, Nafplio, etc. geradezu ideal. Man sollte ein Auto haben. Aber auch Athen ist schnell mit dem Zug oder Auto erreichbar. Doch auch, wer an den landschaftlichen Schönheiten des nördlichen Peloponnes interessiert ist, kommt auf seine Kosten und wer gerne wandert ebenso.

Summa summarum: Ein gutes Domizil für einen gelungenen Urlaub.

Sophie und Hans D.

Fantastische woning in rustige omgeving

  • 5 of 5

Een heel fijne, ruime, schone en compleet ingerichte woning. Komt geheel overeen met de beschrijving. Heerlijk overdekt terras met mooi uitzicht en schaduw. Zeer hartelijke ontvangst en allerlei kleine attenties, we kregen leuke tips voor trips in de omgeving. Strand en zee zijn op 5 autominuten, idem winkels en supermarkten. De omgeving is mooi, zeer veel interessants op archeologisch gebied op korte afstand. Bergen en natuur zijn erg mooi. Woning is rustig gelegen tussen olijfbomen en wijngaarden. Wij hebben genoten!

Vrachati has clean beaches that have been awarded a blue flag. On the beach there are numerous beach bars, restaurants and cafes. For the deck chairs and umbrellas do not pay. But there are also quieter beaches (Kokkoni - Nerantza) that are as clean, so you can enjoy nature better.

One also has the option to also visit other cities nearby such. B. Loutraki (spa town) with casino, Kiato, Xylokastro, where the nightlife is booming, or ancient Greece discover (Ancient Corinth with the museum, Mycenae, the ancient theater of Epidaurus, with various theater productions of "Festival Athinon - Epidavrou" take place).

Not far from the house are the Stymfaliasee (47 Km), the Doxasee (70 Km) in the mountains with picturesque villages and Vouliagmenissee in Loutraki (39 Km), where you can even swim or camp in seawater.

Through the Corinth Canal (25 km) you can enjoy a gorgeous cruise at night or do bungee jumping. Near the channel there is also a children's amusement park with a waterslide.
