Villa Ostria provided us with a peacful haven from the hustle and bustle of Kamari.
In a town where every other shop is a motorbike rental outlet being able to walk without a revving 50cc engine behind you is a must. The gardens of Villa Ostria provide this outlet.
The Villa can be found at the south of Kamari below the mass of Profitas Ilias, the mountain that dominates the skyline behind the town. However, blink and you'll miss the entrance which has a wooden arch bearing the name of the villa.
I do not think that I have seen a better presented garden anywhere in Greece. Kostas, the owner, and his father will be found in the early morning or evening tending to the garden which is one of the major attractions of this apartment complex.
There are only a handful of apartments/studios at Villa Ostria which adds to the intimacy and privacy of the setting. We were lucky enough to have apartment 3 which benfited from having a small patio to the rear by the kitchen, to catch the sun in the morning, access to the garden from the bedroom, to catch the sun the afternoon, and a front patio with table and chairs to catch the last rays of the sun before it disappeared behind the mountain (on it's way to satisfy the queues waiting for a sunset at Oia, no doubt!).
Kostas made us feel very welcome at the Villa, occaisionally leaving some fruit from the garden on the table outside the front door in the morning. I do not think that I have ever heard a Greek laugh so much!
