Christoffel van Hees (the Netherlands)

A beautiful spot which feels like paradise

This Villa stands between olive trees on a slope between to hills with a breathtaking view on the sea below and the hills/mountains on the other side of the sea. When we arrived there it was beyond our expectations. The house itself is very comfortable and gave us a lot of privacy. First of all because of the big garden and terrace surrounding it, but also inside we had our own bathroom connected to our bedroom. We even had our own balcony.

The sea was on walking distance and the most amazing thing was the fact that sometimes we felt owning the whole beach for ourselves.

Although the Villa has such nice features that we could stay around the house the whole week, the area around Kantia has so much interesting places to visit that you must go outdoors and enjoy historic venues like Mycene, Epidaurus and Corinthe. In Nemea we discovered not only an ancient sport stadium, but found also a very nice winery. The inner city of Nafplio is also very worth visiting.

We spent many times there having typical Greek dinners in many different restaurants or just relaxing on a terrace. You hardly find there groups of tourist except from Greeks out of Athens. We really could feel being part of Greek life.

The Villa was our home base and will be our base for many times to come. First of all because there is still so much to discover and also we fell in love with this beautiful house. It was in perfect shape and immaculate clean. We really can recommend it to all our friends.

What was also very nice that we could fly towards Athens International Airport and from there we could drive by car within 2 hours to this nice place. No ferries whatsoever which made it an easy access. Laying on the terrace of this villa with all modern comfortable facilities gave us the feeling of living as gods in Greece. We hope that we’re able to go back to this place as much as we can. Highly recommended.
