Charming villa  (5 bedrooms)with beautiful view , easy walk to the beach and tavernas. Located in the most beautiful and unspoilt part of the island, the beach of Limnos  is 250 meters  away.The  house is built on a 2000 m2 plot, there is an orchard planted with orange, lemon and mandarin-trees. That orchard is watered by  a Greek traditional well (noria).

This villa, simply decorated  but with taste,  harmoniously combines authenticity, charm and respect for the environment. Hidden from view and noise, it ensures a peaceful holiday.

There is a barbecue and a wooden oven  in the garden.

It is shadowed by a huge fig-tree and an olive-tree . Balconies are surrounding the house.  The 1st floor terrace is the most pleasant place to sit in and enjoy the view  : it is overlooking olive trees fields and the sea.

For lunch or dinner , you can make you choice between the tavernas of the villages or the fish restaurants of Limnia ( a small fishing port 10 mn walking from the house) or the two small tavernas of the beach.

During July and August, in the villages around, don’t miss the  “panagyria” , night celebrations with local music and folklorical dances .

Chios island and especially that part of the island  will be much appreciated by nature lovers : it is quiet, authentic and picturesque, on of the reason is  because it has been protected from mass tourism. Also thanks to   its situation (between Orient and Occident) and to its rich historical past, the island offers too many sites to explore.

The transfer from the airport to the house and back can be made by taxi and is not included in the price. We  recommend to hire a car that we can provide for a  price between  150  &  385 €/week depending on categories and seasons)  which can be delived and returned at the airport without  any extra charge.
