The space

This summer (and spring and autumn) house is a real retreat on the second biggest yet undiscovered Greek island of Eubea. It is 150 km from Athens( by car + ferry boat) or 210 km (by car, crossing the Chalkis (URL HIDDEN) is situated on the slope of a small hill, it is surrounded by pine trees and has a wonderful view. It is 80 meters away from the sea. There are no discos, restaurants or coffee shops around, the beach is sandy and very quiet. It is 13 km away from Edipsos, a famous spa city known from antiquity. During your stay, you can visit the Thermae Sylla Spa considered by Conde Nast Traveller England one of the top Medical Spas in the World (www.thermaesyllahotel) and try different types of treatment. The village Gialtra, where you can find most of the basic shops plus a pharmacy, is on the top of the hill, within walking distance (10 to 15 minutes).
The house itself is 70 sq.m., it is furnished with taste but has no particular amenities. It is the ideal place for people who want to live for sometime in simplicity and enjoy nature, hiking (the place is surrounded by forests), swimming (the sea is very safe, as it is a small gulf) or surfing. Since this is a property offering an alternative way of life during one's vacation, there is no television but there is wi fi connection if you choose to stay in contact with civilization A car is necessary! The house is composed of a living room with two balconies and an open kitchen, and two bedrooms(one with a double and one with twin beds). There is one bathroom with shower box. There are screens at all the windows and ventilators in the bedrooms.
*Upon request you can have Greek dishes cooked by a local lady and (EMAIL HIDDEN)munication languages: English, French, Italian, Greek
