A place to find your peace of mind. Close to everything but far from all. A small comfortable house, with unique architecture. A cozy holiday home which blends perfectly with the natural surrounding. A heavenly refuge, 1.5 hours off Athens.

The space

The house’s architecture blends in with the natural environment to create a sensation of continuity between outdoor and indoor areas. Buildings reflect local architecture with inside shutters, plain wood, stone and terracotta to make visitors feel at home and comfortable.

Each room has its own special style. Just like the old times, both furniture and ornaments have their own special place, in contrast to their walk-in versions bringing the past and the present together in natural surroundings.
Positive energy and stone walls of around 80cm (thickness) will allow you to relax in a memorable way. Equipped with two comfortable bedrooms sharing a traditional bathroom, two fireplaces, two dining areas (one in the kitchen and one in the living room) and large porches surrounding the house that offer great view all year around.
Villa Cleanthi is willing to accommodate visitors who are after simplicity and love being in contact with nature.

Guest access

Travelers will have access to the whole house and all the terraces along with the private small paths ending to a small lake and a beautiful tiny river which has water mainly during the winter period.

Interaction with guests

Depending on their needs we can provide assistance in order to allow them a unique experience.

Other things to note

The area is full of great, small beaches of the Aegean sea, while the region is a great windsurfing place! You can visit the megalithic monuments called "Dragon Houses" and the old churches near by, the Museum and the city of Karistos. The canyon is nearby also.

We had a great 10 days in villa Kleanthi, a beautiful traditional Greek cottage.The information on the website was spot on. Antony-Vassili was very helpful and supplied us with good tips to enhance our experience. On arrival we were greeted with a nice, cold Mosxofilero wine. The house was well-equipped and there was plenty of space for a family of four. The surrounding landscape is enchanting, we enjoyed wonderful starry nights and meals on the white terrace and lunches on the terrace by the dining room. I will never forget the aroma of fig trees coming through the bedroom window. And invading the whole house. There were plenty of table games to keep my boys occupied when not swimming, exploring or walking. There are fantastic beaches on all sides of the island with their own individual ambience. Limionas and Niborio were some of our favorites, the water is crystal clear and very clean. Eric and his team attended to our needs and Eric was available when we needed something. The coastal town of Nea Styra has all the amenities, we were able to buy delicious local produce and eat well at the local tavernas and restaurants. We would love to visit again and stay at Antony's place in the future.

The stone house is a perfect place to spend a week or two exploring Evoikos and Aegean seas, beaches, nature trails and local food. The roads were surprisingly good and we had a great time at Antony's place. We found the house to be exactly matching the description. Highly recommended!

We spent a wonderful month in Kouvelles, in Villa Cleanthi, me and my boys. The house is simple and comfortable and cery close to nature. We enjoyed meals outside in the shadow, yoga on the front terrace in the morning and playing board and card games in the evenings. With a car it is very close to Nea Stira, and our favorite, Old Stira. There are many nice beaches around, climbing up the Dragon house was a nice experience. We continued to the top. And Dimosari George is definitely worth a visit. Antony and Eric are extremely helpful and available. Thank you both of you, a piece of our heart is left in Evia!

The location is really nice, the house was great, clean and the view beautiful, as the surrounding houses owned by Antony. The only thing to consider to be fair is, that if the weather is colder during spring is can be colder inside. Other wise everything was great and we would love to come again.

Antony is a great host and we felt more than comfortable! The house was exactly what we expected and we had a super nice time. It's quiet, clean, well restored and provides everything you need. The surrounding landscape is beautiful and there are several empty beaches in the area as well as cosy taverns with delicious local food, especially in old Styra. All in all I would totally recommend spending holidays there and we really hope to come back.

I have long wondered whether I should really write how great Athonys villa is. Because it carries the risk that the house is always booked in the future , and we’ll never find a free period to come back. But this place really deserves it. It is the best Airbnb-location I ever was. The villa is beautifully situated with a few other houses in the hills overlooking Nea Styra. The balcony has a wonderful unobstructed view on a wooded valley. On the terrace you sit slightly shaded under grape vines. It was so nice and relaxing that we often wondered whether we should ever go to one of the many beaches. These can be reached by car in 5 to 20 minutes, depending on which you choose. The house is equipped with everything you need. It was perfectly clean. Antony and Eric were very helpful and had a lot of great recommendations. I can totally recommend this place and will certainly come back. I stayed also two nights in the oven house in the same village. That space is smaller, suited for 1 to 2 persons, but recommendable as well.
