Paradise

We have just returned from a 4 day holiday at Villa Chara and we have already missed this hidden gem. Villa Chara is perfectly located in the beautiful Ammolioni island, very close to a bakery, a butcher shop and at least 2-3 mini supermarkets nearby. The balcony of the villa and the panoramic view of the sea is to die for... We loved the huge balcony so much that we preferred having our dinners at home rather than going out. You can chill out and relax on the terrace just listening to the seagulls and watching the bay or you can reach to 3-4 different beaches very close to the house and swim in crystal clear waters of the island. We had everything we needed ( maybe even more) the house is very well equipped and we felt like we were at home at all times. I am so glad that I have made two new friends in Greece now, Giorgos and his lovely wife...Their hospitality and friendship made our stay an unforgettable one. I hope to visit this hidden gem and to meet these warm hearted people again in future! I suggest this place to anyone seeking for a peaceful vacation...

Everything you need

We stayed at the ground floor apartment for 7 days. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need. The terrace is so specious that you don't even need to go to some restaurant with a sea view, if you can cook you can have a dinner AT THE SEA every night. The nearest beach is like 1 minute away. Exceptional view from the terrace! The host Fifi was very kind, with a good command of English. It was easy to understand with her. Very warm people. Staying in Ammouliani is very calm and relaxing and worth visiting again!

Verschlafenes Paradies

Die Villa Chara liegt traumhaft auf einer Klippe direkt am Meer mit einem atemberaubenden Blick auf den Heiligen Berg. Ammouliani ist im besten Sinne vom Massentourismus verschont geblieben, man sucht Touristennepp vergebens. Im Mai ist die Insel noch im Dornröschenschlaf, leere, weiße Strände, aufmerksamstes Personal in den Restaurants, was will man mehr! Unbedingt hinfahren!

Perfect family vacation

Just returned from a wonderful 4 days at Villa Chara in Ammouliani Island. We are a family 4 couples and we reserved in advance the main villa and the ground floor unit. (we used 4 double rooms out of 5). The kitchen has everything you need, the big terrace has astonishing views (Mt Athos, sunrise...). The hosts Georgios and Fotini received us with so much warmth that at the end we felt like family. Beautiful sandy beaches around the island, bakery near by, tavernas and supermarkets...what else do you need for a perfect peaceful vacation???

We (group of four girls) stayed at the villa for one week at the very end of April. As the season has not started yet, the island was very quiet. We had wonderful time with perfect relaxation - breakfast at terrace over sea with mount Athos view, afternoon at the empty sandy beach two minutes walk from the villa, dinner at a nice local fish tavern in the port... perfect holidays! The villa itself is adorable, very well equipped and excellently located - in a walk distance from shops and restaurants, but very close to the seaside (and with the seagulls coming to the balconies every morning). Inside we had everything what we needed for our stay (and even much more!) and had an impression we were just at home (or in some relatives' or friends' house) - the interior design is very cosy and done with love and the hosts are extremely friendly and very helpful! Thank you once again for the hospitality!

Our week at Villa Chara is one we will never forget. From the warm greeting when we arrived to the tearful goodbyes on departure, we felt very welcome in this home. There are so many things we liked about this place. We stayed in the groundfloor apartment which has a well-equipped kitchen and very large terrace with a magnificent view of the bay and Mt Athos. We spent a lot of time on the terrace, using the grill to cook fish with fresh vegetables from George's garden. We enjoyed meals late into the evening with the music of gentle waves lapping on the shore. I woke up early most mornings just to sit on the terrace and watch the sun rise over the bay. Someone said about Villa Chara "It's worth what you pay just for the view. Everything else is free." I totally agree. After we left, I asked my teenage daughter what was her favorite thing about our vacation in Greece. She said, "It was getting to know the Logothesis family. Thanks for sharing your beautiful house and your lives with us!

“Bellissima”

La casa è proprio come si vede nelle foto, direttamente sul mare, con terrazzi bellissimi da cui si gode di un panorama mozzafiato. Gli ambienti interni sono piccoli, ma molto funzionali. I proprietari sono adorabili e l'isola ha un fascino particolare in ottobre, quando tutto il turismo di massa se ne è andato e le meravigliose spiagge sono deserte. Un consiglio: qualche piccola miglioria nel salottino interno, di modo che la casa possa essere sfruttata anche in bassa stagione. C'è già un bel caminetto, quindi basta veramente pochissimo. Magari uno non pensa ad andare in ottobre su un'isola deserta ma, credetemi, è veramente magico. Grazie Fotini e Georgeos, torneremo sicuramente

“Das private Paradies!”

Das Paradies bewohnen 2 Engel: Fotini und Georgis! Wir waren 6 Personen, 4 Erwachsene und 2 Kinder (7 und 9 Jahre alt) und haben unseren Sommerurlaub 2015 bei der Familie Georgis und Fotini verbracht. Die Beiden machten unseren Urlaub unvergesslich, ob es das frische Gemüse vom eigenen Garten, deren Hilfsbereitschaft oder einfach die Anekdoten aus ihrem Leben waren, es war herrlich. Das Haus ist groß mit einem großen Balkon, der Sonnenaufgang und -untergang sind unvergesslich, das Meer ist direkt am Fuße des Hauses oder 2 Minuten neben dem Haus befindet sich ein kleiner, aber feiner Strand und das Meer ist sehr sauber. Supermarkt, Kaffeehaus, Bäckerei, Hafen oder Tavernen sind direkt in der Nähe, also zu Fuß nur ein paar Minuten. Ein perfektes Haus mit 2 sehr liebenswürdigen Menschen, ein Geheimtipp zum Urlauben ohne Massentourismus.

“I really don't want to tell you this”

I am afraid Villa Chara will be taken next time we want to travel. Therefore I am not sure I want everybody to know how perfect it is there. We're a Norwegian family, and the Swedish-Greek owner couple of George and Fotini make the stay unforgettable. We are artists, and the owner's background in the arts makes the house communicate so well with us. Imagine picking your own ecological tomatoes and cucumbers ten feet away from the sea at the stunning "hanging gardens" on the seaside of the villa. Or falling asleep and waking up to the sounds of waves gently caressing the cliff the house is built on. The house it self is built with care, with four wonderful balconies and terraces that cater to any wind condition. The stunning proximity to the perfect turquoise water and view of mount Athos is breathtaking. The two small beaches nearby where we enjoy our pre-breakfast swims are so close they feel private (there is even a path down to the cliff to swim right beneath the house, but it is a bit rough at the moment). The four bedrooms, and three bathrooms make the stay easy for a big family. And the terrace is the real gem. And Ammouliani is so peaceful, even the greek themselves go there to get away from the tourists. A perfect stay. A perfect house. Please don't tell anyone ...
