Villa Maria is a listed 19th century neo-classical mansion. Built by a local factory owner in 1873 at the height of Ermoupolis’ prosperity, it is a fine example of the architecture of the period. In restoring it we have preserved all the original features —wooden floors and ceilings, marble bathrooms, decorative mouldings— and used antique furniture to give it a comfortable but authentic feel.
The second floor balconies and the roof terrace have panoramic views over the town, the port and across to the neighbouring islands. Behind the villa is a courtyard with plants, built-in seating and a shaded dining area.
The villa is on a pedestrian street right in the middle of town, yet a haven of peace and quiet. It is 2 minutes walk from the main square and market, and 5 minutes walk from the Vaporia. This is the town’s ‘Little Venice’, a lido with cafes and crystal-clear water for swimming.
The villa has 2 apartments and 4 studios that can be rented separately or in any combination.
We had a great time! The flat is perfectly located and equipped and the rooftop has a great view! Kostas had great recommendations for us! The check in and out was flexible! Highly recommended!
Perfect apartment in an amazing location. Exactly as described and then some. One of the best Airbnb’s I’ve stayed in. Kostas is a great host who goes out of his way to make sure you have a compfortable stay. Great local tips! Hope to be back again!! Thanks!!!
Amazing spacious kitchen, good outdoor spaces on different levels of the house from the apartment that let you get sun. Close to the town where everything is available and a 10 min walk (or less) to the local swimming spot. Kostas and Elisa are excellent hosts and very accommodating.
Une magnifique demeure parfaitement décorée, chaleureuse et agréable, un rooftop parfait pour les petits déjeuners ou plus selon vos envies. Kostas est disponible et très serviable, merveilleux séjour trop court !
Kostas is really a host who goes above and beyond to make his guests feel at home and welcomed. He took the time, a few times, to help us plan out our daily activities based on what we like to do (swimming, hiking, beaching), and he even gave us tips on where to get the best food on the island.... read more
Kosta’s quick responses and local tips make staying in this place a great example of what a super host means. The cooking area is amazing but our stay was short so this was under utilized. The outdoor terrace was beautiful but the apartment itself had no views. Please know that you must walk lots of steps from town.... read more
