'Traditional House' was written on the outside wall of the house. I wanted to knock but the door was already open. Both literally and figuratively speaking. ‘Welcome!’, Yannis and Titos shook my hand. Two warm-hearted Greeks who took me to the seats by the swimming pool in the garden before giving me the grand tour. They got me a chilled drink and as the sun was illuminating a clear blue sky, Yannis embarked on his story. ‘This house is our family history which starts in 1820.’ Yannis spoke with a smile on his face and his pride was reflected in the gestures of his hands. About how his great-great grandfather had built the house in 1820. How he had gifted it to his son who passed it on to his son and how their grandfather Yannis gave it to his two grandsons generations later.

I loved the authentic Greek style, old beams and handmade furniture at the house. Which is surprisingly modern at the same time. You can see how family oriented these people are, because all apartments are all about togetherness and warmth. Living rooms with sofas and large dining tables for endless dining sessions. Traditional House, a near-perfect description. I would just add the word ‘family’. A family house. That’s what this is.

The best way to discover your destination is by car!

Are you booking a flight holiday? Then a rental car of the lowest category (Small Class) is selected as standard for your trip and you have the option of upgrading the rental car. You can pick up the rental car at the airport and drive to your accommodation yourself. 

Are you booking a holiday with own transportation? Then the rental car is not included in your trip and you can (at some destinations) book the rental car if you are interested. When you book your rental car, you can pick it up at your destination and drive to your accommodation yourself. The transport to the pick-up point of the rental car is arranged by you.

  • The prices on this page are upgrade prices. They are indicative for your selected travel duration in the chosen season.
  • The car models shown are indicative of the category they fall into. A rental car in the Small Classe with full insurance cover is included as standard for your holiday. After booking, we will check if the chosen car is available. If it is not, we will try to offer you a suitable alternative. In exceptional cases it may happen that no rental car is available. In both cases we will contact you to discuss the options. 
  • Are you the main driver? Then you must meet the minimum or maximum age requirements as stated in the car rental terms and conditions, have a credit card in your name (including PIN number) and a valid driving license.

Tip: If you are travelling with 4 or more people, it is advisable to book an upgrade or an extra car. You can select the car upgrade in the booking steps. Do you want to book an extra car? Please contact us.
