About the Owner

Hi my names Hugh, I have been living in Greece for 7 years now, having previously worked in London in the music business. I came to Greece following my Greek girlfriend back to her roots, and since then we got married and have a small child. We currently move back and forth between the UK and Greece.

Beautiful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

This villa is absolutely perfect for getting away from it all but still within walking distance of a quiet beach and a few tavernas.

We are a family with 3 teenagers who found plenty to do in the local village and it was a short drive to Skala for more choice.

The villa is really clean and well furnished and the owner and housekeeper could not have been more helpful. We managed to leave a couple of small items (chromecast) and they even had thenm posted back to us in the UK.

Could have happily stayed all summer!

Beautiful location, very comfortable property

  • 5 of 5

We were given a very warm welcome by the hosts, who told us in much detail about how to find the villa and what to do when there.

The villa itself is lovely, very spacious with big balconies, all the mod cons and a beautiful infinity pool, incredible views, lemon and olive trees in abundance all around.

Ketelios is charming, and should you wish to explore further there is a very informative book at the property telling you in much detail about the surrounding places. Hiring a car is important if you wish to explore.

The beaches and landscape on the island are just breathtaking. Really recommend this property. Five stars.

Fabulous Stay in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Very spacious and comfortable villa up the hill from Katelios with great views across the valley and bays.

The nearby beaches are the softest sand on the island and perfect for children. They run for a a few kilometres and are almost deserted, just heaven.

Huyshe was on hand through the stay to make sure everything was smooth and we had everything we needed.

Overall a fantastic stay.

Peaceful setting for a Villa break in Katelios

  • 4 of 5

Villa Anenomi is a very well appointed Villa in a private, secluded location with more than adequate living and sleeping space for 6, a delightful pool and poolside area and and a superb outlook over Katelios and the bay. Down the lane to the Villa and turn right down the road for 150 metes and you are on the beach and among the beach-side Tavernas, all of which provide excellent food and friendly service. When returning to the Villa, the last 100 metres or so is on the steep side so some might prefer to use the hire car for a shuttle service. Also, there are quite a few steps up to the Villa so not suitable for the disabled. However, for the able bodied an ideal Villa for your holiday base.

Top of the World

  • 5 of 5

On arrival to the Villa, our immediate impressions were, are we in Greece or Italy. The stairs leading up to the Villa said it all, yet when we opened the door, to the open plan kitchen/living room with the perfectly formed pool, we knew we had properly arrived. The views beyond are breathtaking and yet the privacy of the house and poolside truly makes for a totally relaxing holiday.

We found all the amenities in good working order, very clean, which makes settling in, quick and easy.

The caretaker Jean, lovely lady was very helpful, good to know if we needed any advice. The little fishing village/town at the bottom of the drive is full if great restaurants, I still think of our first night, eating lobster pasta with a smooth light Greek white in a popular taverna. Lastly I must make mention of the great position of the Villa, easy access to the main road to Skala, Poros and Sima, what a wonderful drive we had that day.

Thank you Huw/Eleni we so loved the Island, we will return to explore more. One little tip, talk to the locals they tell you the best hidden spots, Koroni beach is one of them, we found the best place to eat in a cafe above the beach, I won't say more, just go.

all our best,

Jonnie&Zohra

Location

From the Owner

When I moved to Greece my family and I had always dreamt of owning a villa by the sea. I came across an ad for Anemoni, and within a week had flown out to view it. Even in mid November in torrential rain I knew this was the place. We hope you get to enjoy its fantastic views ,and peaceful location as much as we have over the years. Within easy walking distance of the beach, tavernas and market whilst at the same time far from the madding crowd, it really is a privilege being here.
