39 STEPS FROM THE SEA
A family owned house exclusively used for rental. It can be rented alone or in combination with our property listed under “139 steps from the sea” which is very close to it. Built during the 60’s it has been recently refurbished but it still maintains its simple character. This house is a real retreat on the second biggest, yet undiscovered, greek island of Evia. It is 150 km from Athens( by car + ferry boat) or 210 km (by car, crossing the Chalkis (URL HIDDEN) is situated on the slope of a small hill, it is surrounded by almond, fig and olive trees and has a wonderful view from its 40 sq.m. balcony. It is 50 meters away from the sea. There are no discos, restaurants or coffee shops around, the beach is sandy and very quiet. It is 13 km away from Aidipsos, a famous spa city known from antiquity. During your stay, you can visit the Thermae Sylla Spa ((URL HIDDEN) ) considered by Conde Nast Traveller England as one of the top Medical Spas in the World and try different types of treatments. The village Gialtra, where you can find most of the basic shops , is on the top of the hill, within walking distance (10 to 15 minutes).
The house itself is 70 sq.m., it is furnished with taste but has no particular amenities. It is the ideal place for people who want to live in simplicity for some time and enjoy nature, hiking (the place is surrounded by forests), swimming (the sea is very safe, as it is a small gulf) or surfing. Since we have decided to opt for an alternative way of life during our vacations, there is no television, but there is internet connection for you to stay -if you choose to do so- in contact with civilisation.. A car is necessary! The house is composed of a living room with view to the gulf, a small equipped kitchen , a bathroom with a shower and a bedroom with two beds. The living room has a fire place, a pull -out sofa bed plus one bed. There are screens at all the windows and a ventilator in the bedroom.
There is also a shady back porch where you can take your breakfast.
