About The Owner

I am in my 30's and originally from New York City. I currently live in Siena, Italy and teach English. I love to travel, paint, play tennis and read.

Both my parents are Greek and we have been going to Greece to see our extended family since I was young. I decided to buy this apartment for my summer vacations to be close to them and to have a place to completely relax and unwind.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2007

Why The Owner chose Dirfies Messapies

I bought this property to have a place near my family in Greece and chose Nea Artaki for its lovely marina and restaurants. The apartment's view also blew me away. It is away from busy Chalkida but a close enough drive and very close to the Athens International airport.

Lovely Apartment in a Great Locaton

  • 5 of 5

Throughly recommend this for a relaxed holiday. The apartment had everything and more of what you would need. Peggy was very helpful with her recommendations for places to visit and places to eat. Many of which we used. Lots of information in the apartment. Best of all was the large balcony (with comfortable chairs) where the view was lovely day or night with plenty to watch while relaxing with a glass of wine- even a yacht race whilst we were there. Tavernas, Cafes and shops within walking distance. Having a car meant we could visit further a field - into the mountains villages and trips into Chalkida.

Thank you.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

This compact, comfortable and well equipped apartment is in a perfect location in the lovely fishing village of Nea Artaki. There is a large balcony with an excellent view of the harbour and the harbour front. The harbour front is where, each evening, the children play, the teenager promenade and the adults sit and drink and talk. Nea Artaki has a wide range of tavernas, some of which serve only fish and some of which serve only meat. There are also plenty of bars and cafes. Sitting at the edge of the water, eating good food and drinking reasonable wine is near perfect. The village is well situated for trips to both the north and south of Evia, It is also possible to visit Athens (just over an hour on the train) or Delfi (almost two hours by car). A perfect place.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the apartment. Great location with a wonderfull view. Very clean and well equipped, but more comfortable furniture on the balcony would be nice. Good communication with the host and a nice welcome by Roudoula. Highly recommendable.

Great Apartment for sightseeing!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 10 days at this lovely apartment. It is ideally situated for visiting this area of Greece. We visited Delphi, about 2 hours drive away. We went to Marathon and ran 10k along the original route. We went to Athens on the bus from Chalkida, which took just an hour, really easy! Closer to home we visited Eritrea and Chalkida. There are lovely views from the balcony, the marina is directly in front and with binoculars you can see the bridge and the Red House at Chalkida. Nea Artaki is a fishing village unspoiled as yet by tourism, it is very quiet during the day but comes alive in the evening when locals of all age groups come out to enjoy themselves. We had a great stay.

Get away from the usual tourist crowds

  • 5 of 5

Evia isn't really one of the main tourist destinations, and all the better for that. Chalkida is popular with Athenians and so you do get well served with fantastic tavernas and bars. A 15 minute drive out of Chalkida will find you in this lovely apartment at Nea Artaki overlooking the waterfront and harbour. A short stroll provides wonderful local tavernas and plenty of small quiet beaches - or take a drive.

The apartment is fitted out to an extremely high standard and has been superbly maintained. Highly recommended, although you will need a car to get you around - but this is a great base to go exploring from and a pleasure to get back to at the end of the day.

The apartment is 25 meters from the beach, which has a couple of large straw umbrellas and draws the locals who go for their daily swim. A 15 minute drive away is an organized beach (Alikes) with many bars/cafes that offer service, music, water sports, and a more lively scene on the weekends. There are also several other beautiful and quiet beaches within a 15 minute drive from the apartment (Politika, Dafni, Lefkadi)


The nearest airport is the Athens international airport, which is approximately 100km away/1 hour and 15 minute drive. The island is connected to the mainland by a suspension bridge - no need for ferries or internal flights. A car is highly recommended.


Nea Artaki is a 10 minute drive from Chalkida, the capital of Evia and a 1 hour drive from Athens center. All conveniences are within walking distance from the apartment (convenient store, ATMs, supermarket, bakery, etc). There is a bread delivery truck that delivers fresh bread to the apartment building daily.

Further Details:

The town is full of local taverns serving fresh fish and local cuisine and lively cafes line the coast.

If you enjoy cooking & don't mind waking up early you can buy the fish yourself from the fishermen who unload each morning at the marina. There is also a weekly town market selling fresh fruits/vegetables/fish - a ten minute walk from the apartment.

There are also cultural and recreational activities in the area: museums, archaeological sites, wineries, horseback riding, tennis, wind/kite surfing, hiking, biking. For nightlife and shopping a ten minute drive to the island's capital, Chalkida, is your best bet. During the month of August the town organizes cultural events at the port ranging from traditional music & Greek dancing to the yearly fish festival.
