It is difficult to imagine being able to stay any closer to the sea! Sitting on the large terrace (semi-covered by a pergola) is it very easy to imagine that you are suspended over the water – there is no light pollution and the only sound is that of the gently lapping waves, murmuring over the pebbles below you. From the terrace you look straight towards the seasonally-inhabited island of Peristera and right down to Kalamakia and onwards towards Euboia. The cottage is located in Vamvakies, about 17 km from the main port of Patitiri on the south-eastern coast of the island. The traditional fish tavernas of Kalamakia are a drive of 5 minutes and the beautiful bay of Steni Vala, with its mini-markets, cafés and tavernas, is a further 3 minutes.
Access to the cottage is down from road level, along a paved path with steps. The door from the terrace opens into the open-plan lounge and kitchen (with full-sized electric cooker and large fridge/freezer). To the right is a bathroom with shower (and washing machine) and to the left is a large double bedroom with air-conditioning, furnished beautifully in the traditional blue and white of the Greek flag. Natural stone steps from the terrace lead directly onto the beach.
