Outstanding accommodation in beautiful hillside setting with unforgettable welcome and hospitality!
The house is located in the small village of Alones, located at the foot of Krioneritis mountain. Alones is located about 40 minutes drive from Plakias by car, or you can drive to the north coast beaches in about 50 minutes. Beaches are not the main reason to visit as, more importantly, the house is located in a lovely scenic location with access to some really beautiful walks in the hills and along river valleys and farm tracks. There are many deciduous trees fed by groundwater which ensures very green and beautiful valley walks. Nearest shopping is at Argyroupolis, 14 kms away, but vans bring food to the village as well.
The house is well specified and very clean. Construction materials are high quality, with a wooden staircase and wooden floors and beams upstairs. Cooking facilities are more than sufficient and there are plenty of pots and pans to work with for self-catering purposes, along with a 1.5 litre kettle, toaster, large toasted sandwich maker and microwave in addition to a four ring cooker, with oven and grill beneath. The views from the north facing balconies to the rear of the property are outstanding. There is no night life in the village so this is not a suitable place for 'party people', which makes it even more enjoyable for those of us who prefer to stay in an authentic Greek hill village well off the beaten track! There are still plenty of home comforts, though. Settees, chairs, dining table downstairs are very comfortable, and there is an excellent satellite TV set-up with a wide range of channels available in English, Greek and other languages. There is also a WI-FI set-up with limited capacity which nevertheless worked very well for the purposes of checking e-mails, search engine trawls and the like.
What really makes this rental special, though, is the wonderful owners whose hospitality to us was amazing, both on arrival and subsequently during our stay. Not only did we meet Athina, but also husband Dimitri, mother Elinia, daughter Doxa (who deals with the rentals on HomeAway) and her husband and children as well as Doxa's two sisters and their husbands and children. A combination of exchanges in Greek and English over the course of our time together sharing food and good company enabled us all to gain a deeper understanding of our lives and interests and it was a real pleasure for me to be to speak as much self-taught Greek as I did during our stay. This was our 40th visit to Greece & I'm REALLY glad we came to Alones!
