“Barbagiannis house - the complete rest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

This was our 3rd vacation in Barbagiannis house. Actually this is the only place we went on holiday so many times and we will do it again next summer for sure! The house is siutuated on a picturesque hill outside the village. There we enjoyed tranquility and beautiful sea view, spent wonderful time in the garden and got advantage of the barbecue facilities. At the same time, the house is located 5 minutes from the 2 km long sandy beach with shallow sea and 5 minutes from the village centre where we regularly had breakfast at the pastry shop/cafe and got our daily fresh fish supplies. And never missed our 5 o'clock ice cream at the cafe - comparable to the ice cream in Bologna!

Our wonderful hosts Maria and Christos have always been very nice and helpful and we've been happy to learn interesting things about the area, the fishing business, Mount Athos, local cusine, etc. Our girl was also happy to play with their boy and they spent plenty of time together while Maria was kind enough to prepare cookies and sandwiches for them.

Barbagiannis house is a well maintained place - the house, the garden, the parking area - very clean, nothing broken; flowers & green grass, cosy deck chairs and garden furniture made by Christos. The rooms are equipped with modern furniture and arranged very tastefully. I liked very much the lace sheets:) Could be a little bit more spacious, but we cannot complain as we had everything necessary there, incl a kitchenette. The most precious is the view from the terrace - the sea shines in all colours of blue and green and on the terrace we enjoyed many sunrises, the seagul gatherings at noon, nice evenings at candle light and gorgeous rainbows after some rainy afternoons.

Go for it:)

This was the perfect location and provided a brilliant holiday. Maria and Christos were both welcoming and helpful; they could not have done anymore for us in any way. Nothing was too much trouble; they recommended great eating places; advised us about other places nearby; lent us chairs for the beach and even helped with a 'local' telephone call when we needed to amend a boat rental booking. The accommodation was superb; clean, had amazing panoramic views and within 2 minute walking distances from both the beach and the local pretty harbour. The fridge was an excellent size and allowed us to keep a regular supply of iced water; breakfast items and ice for daily gin and tonics! The balcony to our room was spacious and had added privacy of being on the end and also on the second floor. The pleasant seating areas with little table candles dotted around the grounds were an added "touch" - ideal for a morning coffee or evening drink. The 'beach' was long sandy and unspoilt. One of the things we loved about the resorts itself was the fact it appeared to be more of a holiday resort for Greek nationals rather than British tourists. We loved the pool bar at the Antigoni Beach Hotel central to the beach and as far as restaurants went our favourite was the first of the two larger ones walking along the harbour front. Although you could easily have managed without a car, our hire car provided us with some more opportunities for exploring the area. We found several more beaches around the area but ended up returning to our 'local' beach as it was clean, sunny and quite private.

We would thoroughly recommend Barbagiannis House as a fantastic place to stay; suitable for families; couples or solo travellers. Thank you so much to Maria & Christos for making our stay so special.

Room Tip: Go for top floor.

I recommend Barbagianni's for 4 main reasons:
1-It is run by a family, and you notice the difference. Maria was SUPER nice.
2-It is in front of the sea and you can reach the closest beach walking 2 min.
3- the building is on a little hill, which makes it a little more private and less touristy than other accommodations in town. everything was very clean.
4-Ormos Panagias has two fish stalls that sell the fresh catch every morning and Barbagianni's house offers a grill and a kitchen in the garden to cook the fish! So you can eat candle light without going at the restaurant nor stinking the room.

The very negative review I just read about this fantastic place is really so strange to me!!! I LOVED BARBAGIANNIS HOUSE!!!! The location is what makes it so wonderful. It is a very CLEAN(veramente MOLTO pulito), well kept, and pretty house, with a gorgeous garden area equipped with everything you need: little kitchen, table and chairs, lawn chairs, beach beds...and it all looks out onto the gorgeous sea on the coast of Sithonia. Of course, the property is up on a hill, and that's pretty easy to figure out because you have to drive up a hill to get to it. So that shouldn't surprise anyone. But that's precisely why I liked it so much - the view was extraordinary, and it was so peaceful and quiet. It was especially wonderful to sleep at night only to the sound of the sea...no noise from cars or big hotels, etc. The owners are very friendly and helpful people, who clearly work very hard to maintain this property and apartments so well. I highly recommend this place to anyone who would like to stay in a quieter, more authentic location.

Had a lovely week in July at this establishment which stands on its own on a prime location. The view from the balcony is enchanting especially after midday when it is shady. The gardens are well kept and the barbie and outdoor cooking and eating patio very handy if you want to keep your room clean and free of cooking smells. The rooms are fully refurbished with a small kitchenette, tastefully decorated and very clean. Only discomfort they are a bit small if a single bed is added for a child not to mention a third person. However children can spend a lot of time in the garden which is absolutely suitable fir them. There is an apartment for families but early booking is required. The beach is in walking distance (300m) and the nearby village of Ormos Panagias as well. The place is very quiet and relaxing, an excellent value for money and the owners are very friendly and helpful.

Great accomodations, facilities and location. Close to the little port and the beach. Maria and Christos were great hosts. It is a perfect spot for a relaxing holiday. Just what we needed. They had airconditioning, bbq area, kichenette, and good beds. The nearby beach is amazing the water is so crystal clear and warm. We met up with some friends and family here and had a great time in great company. Amazing sunrises, and views out to sea, with the little fishing boats sailing in and out daily. Accomodations and facilities were very clean and comfortable. Will definately be back for another holiday.

I found Barbagiannis through Tripadvisor during a last minute holiday organising action and after reading the first review booked it immediately without much further investigation.
Due to a less than stellar telecom service in this part of Greece the communication was a bit bumpy (my mails did not get through) but in the end my reservation was confirmed.
Christos picked me up at the bus stop and when I arrived at their house I was awed. On top of the divide between two bays, 3 minutes walking distance to the tiny town of Ormos, equally 3 minutes to the 2 km long beach on the other side and a great view from the room.
As a solo traveller I especially appreciated the possibility of cooking in the room. Each room has a small kitchenette plus in the garden there is a bigger space with a grill (Christos will teach you how to grill fish expertly) . This space is a sort of meeting point for the guests and I spend nice evenings there meeting the other guests, sharing dinner and chatting.
The rooms are not huge, but appointed with all the necessities, the bathroom is small but perfectly adequate and functional. Free Wifi connection and Christos and Maria will provide you with biological, home made olive oil, great ouzo and lots of information.

Room Tip: All rooms have sea view, some are on the side of the house, so that might impact the view a little.
