Our 3 days long stay with Dimitris and Kiki was surely the best experience troughout our 3 week long trip to Greece and also one of the best ever on my airbnb-history.
This wonderful house and the hospitality of Dimitris and Kiki in the very charming Metaxochori village should inspire airbnb guests to remember what this all is meant to be for - living like a local.
Kiki and Dimitris are very delightful and caring hosts - their mansion is a real home for them, as well for guests. They have a lot knowledge to share. It’s a historically rich house to feel and enjoy with family, friends or on alone - the beautiful isolated garden, as well the city of Agia and the village will both be a romantic and an authentic getaway for visitors who seek shelter from noisy and spoiled tourist attraction points, though many worth to visit places are at easy-to-reach distance. Meteora, Tempe valley, nearby beaches, hills, nearby hidden trassures - monasteries, churches and villages. Your hosts will give you the best advices when asked.
Just a few steps away there are 3 tavernas/ eateries/ cafes where one will experience the lively social life of the village, but city of Agia with more bars and restaurants is just about 20 minutes away by walk.
We visited during extreme (for Greece) winter weather - it was snowing a lot, so the house, village, the fireplace Dimitris took care of and the hosts themselves truly made us consider to extend our sray! We will surely return during spring, summer or autumn.
As Kiki told us, during summer the village is lively of visitors from bigger cities - artists and writers, as many have summer houses and the beach is just 10-15 min drive away.
Guests should know that Kiki has better English-speaking experience, but Dimitris understands English well, so most likely Kiki will be answering your messages.
We highly recommend to choose Metaxochori for your holidays not only because of the great hospitality Kiki and Dimitris provide, the spatious, clean and well cared-of house, charming town and wonderful summer garden, but also for very good local wine, authentic atmosphere, the good location and the bright personalities of the hosts that make you feel at ease and like home every moment of your stay.
There are several private bedrooms for couples or families and a very spatious 2nd floor hall with beds for bigger companies of friends, and the garden will bring people together and make everyone feel like home.
Every room and bathroom is unique and decorated with unpretentious, very lovely and cozy furniture.
The hosts are both great cooks, but they will also give space to their guests to explore the kitchen on themselves.
Thank you so much for a chance to meet You and to stay with You!
