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:)
