A very beautiful place

Lovely home away from home
We had a very nice week in Elisa Cottage. It is a special and well maintained home, tucked away in the hills of a beautiful area of Greece. Elissavet is a wonderful host, always ready to help and give suggestions on where to go and what to do. We had a wonderful time.

5/5 Excellent

Very special house
Elise Cottage is set in the lovely countryside south of Gythion close to the long and unspoilt beach of Vathi. Not so much a cottage but a stylish and well furnished house set in a wonderfully planted, generously large garden full of colour and interest, which is itself set in beautiful countryside. The house is a home and this shows, every thing works. (Yes, lots of hangers, cutlery, bits and pieces that you hadn't thought about), the room sizes are generous and all lead on to their own balcony/terrace. There are lots of outside sitting areas to accommodate the splendid views over the countryside. You can see the sea, but a word of caution, the views come at a price, it's a steep walk and a careful drive to the beach! Altogether highly recommended.

5/5 Excellent

Calme et sérénité
Nous avons passé une semaine très agréable à Elise Cottage. Nous étions 4 adultes et 2 enfants dont un bébé. La maison est très bien équipée, à 5 minutes de la plage (en voiture). Le cadre est vraiment très beau et reposant. Je recommande !

5/5 Excellent

Une belle maison arrangée avec goût et dotée d'une belle âme
Située sur une colline offrant une vue superbe sur la mer, la maison jouit d'un véritable cachet. Elle est dotée de tout le confort nécessaire et est entourée d'un magnifique parc où abondent les fleurs les plus variées. Un piano agrémente le salon et offre aux mélomanes des soirées musiciennes et magiques.
