“Fantastic area with superb views, do not need to eat breakfast”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

I just stayed one night there. The mother of the owner told me that there were no more rooms but only the one I got which supposed to have views to the sea, which wasn't correct. The welcome drink in the terrace was really tasty. Their behavior was deliberate attempt to create a climate of hospitality but I think they had to be more themselves. Breakfast was not included in the price of 55 Euro for one person per night and I found that it served with too much overflow and to much bread and sweets without any orange juice. I read the reviews and must say I really expected more from the hotel and the area. I do believe they can offer for these prices much better value! The hotels in the mountains of Greece for prices like these have much more to offer and with pool and many amenities. For sure it is a very calm place ideally located!

Room Tip: Do not take the room next to the parking area! Insist for a room in the upper area next to the break...

We spent 10 days in July 2013. We were looking for a quiet and less touristy environment which was met by VHH. Our stay was made even better by the lovely Antigoni. We were always greeted with a warm and genuine smile. Our apartment was tastefully decorated and clean.
We loved the breakfast which was delicious and consisted of jams and cakes made by Antigonis mother. Breakfast was served on a beautiful terrace which also served drinks and snacks in the evening.
The location is quiet. There is a beach close by (5 minute walk). You will need a car if you want to eat out as well as explore the island.

Visiting Chios for just a few days, we wanted to stay in a hotel that would be a safe haven from the troubles of the outside, reserved for relaxation. Volissos holiday homes was just that. The service was personalized and tailored to our needs, the owners always kind and treating us as their friends.
After a small walk, on a trail inside a pine forest, there was an amazing beach with crystal clear waters ideal for catching some sun
The most amazing thing about the place though was it's view of the sea, from everywhere you stood , every single place and room had a mesmerizing view of the Aegean
a very strong choice for those who want to get away from it all

We went there at the beginning of September but it was already low season: there were only a few people there, so we had all for ourselves the beautiful terrace bar, where you can see a stunning sunset while enjoying a cold beer.
The young owners are extremely kind and helpful, especially Antigone, who really managed to make our brief stay there a wonderful one.
The apartments are nice and high quality, with comfy beds and sea view (not all of them, be sure to book one with it). You can have dinner using the small terraces of your apartments or use the big communal terrace, where you can try simple, delicious homemade food.
There's a nice beach at walking distance with umbrellas and lounge chairs, otherwise you can go by car at the beautiful and sometimes deserted beaches of the nearby coast.
We really enjoyed ourselves and we will surely try to come back for a longer stay. We found it by chance after some days in south Chios beacause we wanted to explore the wilder and less touristic north-east part of the island: we discovered this little piece of paradise that was the best way to spend the last two days of our trip.
It is maybe a little more expensive of other places in Chios, but it definitely worth the extra money.
Highly recommended.

We spent two amazing weeks enjoying the comfort, views, and hospitality at Volissos Holiday Homes in July 2012. The sea and island views from our private balcony and the shared terrace were spectacular. The breakfasts were delicious and the terrace where it was served could not have been more beautiful. A short walk down the hill from this terrace is a wonderful beach offering perfect swimming in clear, green water. We can't say enough about how friendly and hospitable Antigoni and her assistant were. We live in the U.S. and have traveled quite a bit internationally and this was by far the nicest place we have ever stayed.

We were here with our four children in July of 2012. The temperatures were in the 100's and the other home we rented was a disaster. We asked to start our stay nearly a week early and she accommodated us. The hospitality was outstanding, the place was extremely clean I felt fine letting my baby crawl on the floor. The beach was great and the atmosphere perfect. We were familiar with the island but any little thing we needed or might have missed was attended to in a timely and conscientious manner. We will definitely look into staying there again on future visits. Volissos is on the opposite side of the island from the Chora but that side of the island has lots to offer and is very peaceful. It's great for families and couples alike. I highly recommend it!

Room Tip: We had the larger family unit and it was very nice but it would have worked nicely for two couples t...

This was our first visit of the island of Chios and we departed with very possitive impressions.A lot of this was due to the EXCELLENT in all respects stay we had at Volissos Holiday Homes.The high quality reviews are very much justified!! The location is unique,overlooking the port of Limnia and the whole Aegean with perfect sunsets.The apartments are very comfortable ,very tastefully furnished,clean,with sizable verandas providing unmatched sea views.The main terrace, where breakfast and drinks in the evenings are served has a 360 degrees unobstracted view of nice coves, the open sea,and the green mountains.Breakfast is optional and of very good quality.The emphasis is on local products that Kalliopi the owner uses to prepare delicius pies,marmelades and drinks!!
Having said all this I have to conclude with what in my opinion is the strongest reason to select VHH.
It has to do with the human factor and the service that they provide.They are very professional,ready to help with suggestions of places to visit,eat ,swim,and daily itineraries.The owners are on top of their business the staff is efficient-a special mention for smiling Lamprini- but the manager Antigoni is the highlight. Bright,polite,well informed,and a most pleasant all around manager.We will return.
