Refurbished Traditional Townhouse and Garden with Amazing Sea and Island Views

Waterfront Holiday home with kitchen and balcony
If you’ve ever been to picturesque Glossa, you will probably know Eleni's House. Within the village, its commanding position offers some of the best views available and visitors are often found looking fondly out over the garden and rooftops to the extraordinary panorama beyond, having a Shirley Valentine moment! Eleni’s House is a charming, traditional stone house with a garden. Spacious, refurbished to a high standard - the latest improvements taking place in 2019 - and equipped to be a home-from-home, the property is designed to provide an oasis of calmness and luxury. The main 43 square metre bedroom occupies the entire top floor together with a balcony (and, in the Sporades style, a toilet) providing outstanding 180-degree views across to the Greek mainland, Skiathos, Evia and the islands off Milia and Kastani beaches. Below is a large airy living room, with a dining table on a mezzanine level in between. The modern kitchen is down a few more steps and is supplemented by a utility room with a washing machine. The shower room is fully tiled and equipped with modern fittings and a truly huge shower area. In the west-facing garden, you can either enjoy lying on loungers under the gazebo or sitting under the orange and almond trees. Being in the village, there is a taverna, a café / bakery and three shops around the main square within just 2-3 minutes’ walk of the house which can provide all you could possibly need and more – seriously! – with other shops and restaurants just a little further away in other roads in Glossa. It is just a 15 minutes walk down the hill to Glossa’s harbour – Loutraki – where there is a further range of shops and tavernas, and where the ferries and catamarans dock.
Guest accommodation at this holiday home offers DVD players and a hairdryer. Rooms open to balconies. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs, kitchenware and utensils and coffee/tea makers. Bathrooms include a shower. Housekeeping is provided on request.
The recreational activities listed below are available either on-site or nearby; fees may apply.

Life in Glossa
Eleni’s house is a amazing traditional house in the heart of the village with easy access to all amenities (if you don’t mind steps!) and very well equipped . The view from the balcony can not be beaten, the highlight being the sunset every night The owners are friendly and accommodating and the local agent very helpful when needed

5/5 Excellent

Perfect Greek villa
What a beautiful house and location. Couldn't have asked for anything better.

5/5 Excellent

Séjour fabuleux, la maison est jolie, refaite à neuf, avec une vue imprenable sur la mer. Bien située dans le village et avec toutes les commodités.

5/5 Excellent

Geschmackvoll renoviertes Haus mit Anbindung ans Dorfleben
Am oberen Ortsrand von Glossa gelegen, hat man vom Balkon einen tollen Ausblick aufs Meer und die Inseln. Stilsicher eingerichtetes Wohnzimmer im oberen Stockwerk, das über eine sehr steile Treppe mit dem darunter liegenden Schlafzimmer verbunden ist. Nichts für Fußkranke. Schöner Freisitz mit Liegen im Schatten auf der anderen Gassenseite gelegen. Küche mit allem ausgestattet, was man üblicherweise im Urlaub braucht. Einbindung ins griechische Dorfleben, kurze Wege zum Einkauf oder zu Tavernen, Bars etc., nachts ab und zu Roller- und Motorradverkehr der Einwohner in der Gasse vorm Schlafzimmer. Glossa wirkt authentisch, man verbiegt sich nicht, um touristisch das Letzte herauszuholen.

5/5 Excellent

Det var en helt fantastisk vistelse i Glossa och i Eleni’s house. Genuint och charmigt
Huset hade ett härligt läge mitt i byn med närhet till bageri, affär och restauranger. En känsla av ro och vila. Underbar utsikt och allt stämde med beskrivningen. Viktig information är att det ligger högt upp och kräver god fysik och rörlighet på grund av trappor och backar. Perfekt om man vill undvika internet och TV och bara koppla av, passade oss därför utmärkt. Vi vill gärna återvända, vi blev förälskade i Glossa med sin lugna vardagslunk.
