My place is close to Politika village in Evia.
Nightlife during summertime - quiet village life during winter.
Public transport by train of bus from Athens-Chalkida-Politika.
The Airport of Athens is 117km (approx 1h30m) from home.
The biggest city Chalkida, is just 20km from home.
The island is full of parks and beautiful nature.
You’ll love my place because of the views, the location, the people, the ambiance!
My place is good for couples, families (with kids) and pets.

The space

Right on the waterfront, the house was built in 1970 and has kept its initial characteristics (tiles on the roof, wooden shutters, pergolas etc.) It has been modified internally by adding two small bathrooms for more independency and by few other adjustments for a more modern look. The windows and the shutters are the original ones, which we are maintaining every two years. The bedrooms are quite small but very cosy and practical. They all have they own closets, two of them have their own bathrooms - the other three share two individual bathrooms. There is an extra room on the first floor which can be used as a small "gym" as it hosts the treadmill and some other gym equipment.
The first floor where the bedrooms are, is surrounded by a big balcony overlooking the Evoikos Gulf.
The ground floor hosts the spacious living room with the fireplace, the dining room with an open bar looking to the kitchen, plus a guest WC.
It has a big veranda with the outdoor living and dining space which leads to the garden and then straight away to the ... water!
The area is famous for its tide, which is very obvious in front of our house: the water withdraws up to 40 meters at the highest tide! and then comes back again right on on your chaise long on the beach!
The beach has pebbles and stones, so watershoes are recommended for the more... delicate feet. Some 70 meters to your left, you can enjoy as many water sports as you want, from waterski, surf, beach volley or just enjoy a refreshing cocktail on the bar of TUZ ski-club!
The backyard can be used as a playground for children (there are also swings, basketball and a ping-pong table.)

Guest access

The guests can use the whole space. (I will keep the two small wooden houses in the backyard as storage for our personal belongings.)

Interaction with guests

Help/cleaning can be provided upon request.

Other things to note

Travelers who chose to come to Evia, are people who want to avoid the most popular, touristic and commercial islands of Greece. Politika is a small village with a long beach with a promenade, nice tavernas, cafès and small bars (during summertime), more like a family hideaway. During winter and early spring, everything is quiet and ideal for long walks and enjoying the beautiful nature of the island.

The house was perfect for us . (Two families). Beautiful and with a great view. We spent a lot of time enjoying ourselves in the expansive yet warm home. Lots of room indoors and out for the children to play and investigate. The sea and pebble beach are literally private. Billy gave a lot of thought to details and was a perfect host. Evia was easy to explore from here, we loved the Island.

Rested three families in the season July-August. The house is very spacious. Places grabbed everything. On the second floor there are 4 bathrooms with a shower. 2 tauletas are located directly in the rooms. The rest of the bedrooms can be used by the other two. There is a toilet on the first floor. Of all the rooms there is an exit to the balcony, which is quite convenient for drying clothes. The ground floor is also very large. The kitchen has all the necessary equipment - stove, dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster, kettle, waffle iron, juicer. Very conveniently arranged window into the kitchen - in the form of a bar counter. Dining area immediately with her or on the terrace near the house. Exit to the terrace is in the form of a panarama sliding window. The territory in front of the house and the garden in front of the sea are comfortably comfortable. In front of the house there is a tennis table and a basketball ring. There are 2 bicycles. On its own beach 2 umbrellas from the sun, table 5 chairs, 4 sunbeds. Nearby there is a shower with fresh water. Sunset in the sea is quite stony. We used special slippers. The sea is calm, there were no waves. Billy is very responsive, always

Пребывание в гостях у Билли оставили только положительные воспоминания: огромный дом, с потрясным видом на море, полностью безопасный для детей, оборудован всем необходимым для спокойного семейного отдыха. В распоряжении у нас были многочисленный развлечения: баскетбольное кольцо, пинг понг, бадминтон, мячи и прочие игры. К дому примыкают два газона (искусственный и живой) так что территории для игр и прогулки на свежем воздухе хватало на всех. К дворовой территории примыкает собственный пляж (на пляже камни, лучше взять специальную обувь, есть водоросли) оборудованный собственными шезлонгами и зонтиками. Хозяйка Билли была очень приветлива и обеспечивала нас всем необходимым. При желании можно заказать уборку. Расположена вилла в шаговой доступности от идеального галечного пляжа, (на котором в момент нашего прибывания было мало народу). Там же есть набережная с тавернами, особо стоит отметить ресторан "Кириакос". В 10 минутах езды на машине расположены 2 городка: Политика и Псахна, где можно пополнить запас провизии. Словом, идеальное место для тихого семейного отдыха. Staying at Billy's house left only positive memories: a huge house, with a incredible view of the sea, completely safe for children, equipped with everything necessary for a quiet family holiday. At our disposal we had a lot of fun: a basketball ring, ping pong, badminton, balls and other games. To the house adjoin two lawns (artificial and alive) so that the territory for games and walking in the fresh air was enough for everyone. To the courtyard adjoins its own beach (on the beach stones, it is better to take special shoes, there are seaweed) equipped with its own sun loungers and umbrellas. Billy was very friendly and provided us with everything necessary. If you wish, you can order cleaning. The villa is located within walking distance from the ideal pebbly beach (on which there were few people at the time of our arrival). There is also an embankment with taverns, especially the Kiriakos restaurant. In 10 minutes by car there are 2 towns: Politika and Psakhna, where you can replenish the provisions. In short, the ideal place for a quiet family holiday!! Thank you, Billy!!!
