Welcome to our historic flat on the beautiful unspoilt island of Oinousses in Greece's NE Aegean! Extensively & stylishly restored in 2017 for new holiday rentals, the property is perfectly positioned for an authentic lifestyle experience, in the heart of the island's only village - just a 5 minute stroll to beaches, restaurants, shops & the revitalized waterfront. A sunny & comfortable space offers captivating views of the sea, mountains & sunsets from the shuttered windows and expansive patio.
This flat, on a lower level, along with an adjoining house above, comprise Evgenikon, a large traditional house ideally located in the heart of the village. The flat offers simple, stylish living. The property's overwhelming attraction is the stunning views toward the harbour and the heat-blurred outline of the mountains of Chios. The original part of the building dates to 1897, with an addition made in the 1980s.
This flat was renovated to combine fresh, contemporary touches with traditional elements such as the chandeliers and arched ceilings and windows. The 55 square metre space offers airy, sunny and comfortable living with lovely views of the sparkling Aegean Sea, islands and mountains and of the dramatic sunsets from the shuttered windows and expansive patio.
The flat is accessed by a short exterior staircase, which leads onto the huge patio and its new furniture shaded by a soaring arch. The interior, all on one level, boasts high ceilings with new, professionally installed acoustic insulation.
Virtually everything in the high ceilinged, air-conditioned bedroom is new (2017): bed, mattress, linen, bedside tables, lighting and rugs. Sunshine floods into the dining and living areas from two arched, shuttered windows and front stable door. These areas also offer new furnishings, including a double sofa bed, carpet, lighting, dining chairs and decorative items. There is also a single day bed in the living area with a new mattress. The bright kitchen, with a traditional arched ceiling, is fully equipped with new stove and all essentials. The fully tiled bathroom boasts a sizeable shower and walk-in laundry area with a new washer and dryer.
Guests have sole use of the entire 55 square metre flat.
Interaction with guests
I may be on the island while guests are there and, in any event, I will be contactable at all times and, in my absence, a local representative will meet guests, accompany them to the flat and also be available for any enquiries or issues. Print-outs of the town's main amenities are available at the flat.
Other things to note
This charming accommodation in a historic, freestanding house would suit a couple, a small family, a group of friends and solo adventurers seeking an authentic island lifestyle.

I've moved frequently in my life, hungry for adventure and new experiences. I have many indelible memories of living and working in Kenya, Scotland's Highlands, Brittany and in Canada's west, north and eastern fringes. After working as a journalist in London (England) for nearly a decade, I moved to Athens (Greece), where I eventually restored a house on the small Greek island of Oinousses. I enjoy welcoming guests there so they, too, can discover its authenticity and charm and now, I'm happy to accommodate guests in my Ottawa home! My interests include reading, music, fitness and travel.
