Had a truly nice stay and definitely would recommend the place for anyone who is looking to experiencing some real welcoming Greek hospitality. Customer service went far beyond our expectations and if we had to pass by the area again we definitely would stay over again.
The house is clean and nicely decorated throughout with a lot of original old features, furnitures and decorations that make up a very special atmosphere. The breakfast was nice, we were offered local organic food, really loved it. As for the location, the house is based in a lovely mountainous village surrounded by gorgeous views. A great selection of beaches is just a short drive down the hill, whereas Aigio town offers you a good shopping and a number of restaurants, cafes and bars.
The most I liked in there was the waking up in the morning - except for the birds and grasshoppers there is no other noises around giving you an absolute tranquillity, moreover, the views out of the windows are simply breathtaking.
Also, the house has got a lovely furnished outdoor area - a perfect spot for a glass of local drink or a romantic dinner as we had arranged one in our balcony. The second night we were advised to visit a local taverna which is about 10 minutes walk in the very next village, the dinner was absolutely delicious - definitely worth visiting if you after to try some real Greek food.
All in all, the stay was fantastic and the place ticks all my boxes
