We were so very impressed and felt very privileged to be able to stay at this beautiful apartment. From the moment we stepped into the apartment we felt at home. It was beautiful, with everything we needed. The view was spectacular and we strolled down to the amazing restaurants on the water for dinner each night. Yota made us feel like we were home. The rooms were very big and the bed was very comfortable, making for great nights sleep. Highly recommend to stay here.
I would certainly return. It is an excellent base not only to explore various islands but also the mainland. Ermioni itself is a lovely place and I was made to feel very welcome
The Tree Top was spacious and clean and well stocked for self catering. Yota and Nikos were generous and helpful with regard to showing us around Ermioni. Ermioni has plenty of tavernas and also it is easy to shop for self catering, good bakeries and butchers. Great market on Thursday. For walkers there are a variety of hill walks with stunning views. Swimming is good and easy to reach. Even though the apartment is on the top of a steep hill you can find pathways that are kinder on the walk in and out of town.
We look forward to returning.
We did not hire a car but next time we shall, so to explore further a field.
Incredibly spacious, breathtaking views, a short stroll through the picturesque old town to a village that feels like an old school santorini without all the tourists. There are all sorts of board games for kids and you can walk down the hill to safe and gorgeous little swimming spots. But what made the trip even more special were the sweet and helpful Nikos and Yota, who sent pictures of the surrounding area before we arrived to get us excited, welcomed us with open arms when we arrived, and gave us the sweetest goodbye. Ever helpful with tips and advice. My family continues to talk about Ermioni, Nikos and Yota long after we have come home.
Treehouse was a lovely peaceful haven to relax in. You walk in to a flower filled courtyard garden with a BBQ and feel instantly 'at home' and relaxed. Yota herself is a wonderful host, she gave us a warm welcome and some refreshments and told us about the area. She recommended restaurants in Ermioni and told us how to get to Hydra with the local ferries. She is warm, friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble!
The apartment was well equipped with quality appliances, comfortable bed and a good kitchen to cook in. The parking is right outside. The balcony is spacious and we loved the view which ranged from majestic mountains to arable land and a great sea view. It was the perfect place to relax after a day's sight seeing.
If you want to go out there are plenty of places in Ermioni on both sides of the peninsula. We enjoyed going down to the side where the yachts moor, having a coffee and watching the comings and goings.
It is really well situated for visiting Hydra as the ferries from Ermioni are cheap, frequent and only take 25 minutes. Much more civilised than going from Piraeus. You can spend all day there and take the last boat back. Porto Heli is easy to get to as well. Greek. you can visit Nafplion (lovely place with Neo Classical buildings and great shops!), the islands of Poros, Hydra, Spetses and the volcanic (almost an island) Methana.
Ermioni itself is charming and has the feel of a real Greek town rather than just a tourist destination. There's a great patisserie/ bakery, a butcher's and all the regular shops you find in a town. Eating out is very reasonable on the mainland and the food is delicious. Try the local carafe wines - everything is much better value than the islands and more authentically Greek.
Our trip with Eudaimonia tours was exactly what my friend and I hoped for with our trip to Greece. Was the best paid by our terms and would highly recommend it. Nikos, our guide, was friendly, full of information, and put us at ease the first day. It was great traveling in a car instead of a bus, and have a guide all to ourselves. Nikos told us basic history of each site as we were heading there, Mycenae, Nafplio fort, and Epidaurus theatre the first day, and gave us tips on where to go and what to see while there. To our joy we found out that all archeological sites are FREE to EU students!! Everything was on our own time, we never felt rushed, and could fully enjoy the beauty of Greece and it's history. We had the best lunch in a small village Nikos and his wife had discovered. The food was amazing and truly authentic, no tourist faire. We even got serenaded by the locals, not an everyday occurrence I am sure! The apartment you stay in is large and can easily fit 4 people comfortably. Yota is the hostess and she makes you feel right at home. Nikos recommended restaurants for us to try and the food did not disappoint. The next day we went to Hydra, which was picturesque. Spetses island was the next day, although bigger, most places were getting ready for the tourist season, and not all of the shops were open. But the lack of people made it ideal to explore. These tours are definitely the best way to see authentic Greece, away from the tourist route. I would definitely use this company again!
Lovely, clean, spacious, well equipped apartment hosted by Yota and Nikos who were equally lovely. Location is very quiet and it is only a short walk down to the really nice tavernas and bars on the non port side of the peninsular and a slightly longer walk back. Access to Wi fi could have been a bit better but do not let this small detail stop you booking this great place. We are fussy about where we stay and will not hesitate to book again.
Oh yes, the house can be a bit tricky to find unless you stick to this simple rule: if you are looking from the port side of the peninsular it is the top right hand house on the ridge, if you are looking from the other side it is the top left hand house on the ridge - you may not be able to see it but that's how to find it.
