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

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.
- No shoes on the upper floor! No paper in the toilets!
