Other things to note

Until 1925, the island was a metohi (church property) of Holy Monastery of Vatopedi, of Mount Athos, then inhabited mainly by 2-3 monks. In 1925, the island was vested to the refugees who came from Asia Minor, and specifically from the islands of Propontis (Galleme, Passalimani, Skoupia).
Coming from these areas, which were neighbouring with Constantinople, the refugees brought with them their culture, customs and tradition. Having the knowledge of living with and by the sea, they concentrated on fishing and managed in a few years to stand out for their craft.

What a treat to have spent two weeks in Villa Chara. Beyond the amazing location, the extremely well fitted home, the stunning views, we were lucky to meet Georgos and Fotini, the best hosts one could wish for. Their generosity and their fun, easy going personality added in unexpected ways to our vacation. We look forward to coming back!

Staying at Villa Chara is like having a taste of paradise: beautiful house, quiet, with an amazing view on the sea and Mt Athos. Alex was not there but he organized his parents to pick us at the harbour and bring us to the house. They were both very kind and helpful, showed us the restaurants and supermarkets on the island. Definitively a superb place where we'd love to come back, in summer maybe when we can enjoy the sea.

Von Anfang an haben uns unsere Gastgeber sehr herzlich aufgenommen. Sie haben uns an der Fähre abgeholt, uns über schöne Strände & Restaurants informiert und uns dann unseren Teil des Hauses gezeigt. Das Haus war sehr sauber & ordentlich, genau, wie auf den Bildern gezeigt. W-Lan war auch vorhanden. Die Doppelzimmer sind alle mit Klima-Anlage ausgestattet. Das EZ hat einen Ventilator. Für grosse bzw. lange Menschen sind die Betten bei Doppelnutzung etwas eng. Wenn man die Waschmaschine nutzen wollte, musste man nur die Hausbesitzer fragen, die direkt in der unteren Etage wohnen. Der Strand liegt gleich neben dem Haus in ca. 100 m Entfernung, leicht zu erreichen. Das Dorfzentrum ist leicht zu Fuss zu erreichen. Wir hatten eine wunderschöne Zeit!

Hi, my name is Alex and I help my parents, Georgios and Fotini, with the online reservations together with Harry, my brother in law. My parents manage the property and interact with our guests. I live in New York City but I try to spend most of my summers in Greece so there is a good chance that you'll meet me too! We all love this villa so much that not a year goes by without renovating or upgrading some part of it. My parents built it with love and care and it shows.
