A pool with a dramatic view

Katia' s House stands on a hillside overlooking the tiny port of Kalamakia, half way along the east coast of the island. The port is effectively the 'home' for five local families. The wives and daughters look after the three waterfront tavernas, and the husbands and sons cast their nets daily from their caiques to ensure a rich selection of fresh fish. The views from both the upstairs bedroom balcony and the downstairs sitting room are dramatic: down to Kalamakia port and across the sea to the islands of Peristera and Kyra Panagia.

A steep pathway, shaded by tall pine trees, leads down from the house to the port in two minutes; alternatively, a less precipitous walk along the coastal road to the port takes five minutes. Katia's House is simply yet comfortably furnished and is a romantic retreat for couples. If the morning sun is strong there is a separate sitting area, to the side of the house, shaded by a large umbrella pine overlooking the sea.

Kalamakia has no shops and we therefore recommend either car hire on boat hire in order to reach the nearby port of Steni Vala, a ten-minute journey by land on sea, where one can find two supermarkets and a good selection of taverns and bars. Katia's House offers a simple escape from the crowds above a sleepy and peaceful fishing port.

ACCOMMODATION Each house has an upper floor of one double bedroom leading to sea-facing balcony, bathroom with shower. Stairs down to small sitting room leading to sea-facing terrace; shower room; outside access via terrace to simple kitchen. Car hire and Boat hire are recommended
