Le logement
APHRODITE’S COAST HOUSE

Aphrodite, was my grandmother, one of the four of Captain Thanasis’s children (three daughters and one son), who had sailed through the Black and the Mediterranean sea, with his “briki” called the “AMITY”, in the late of the 19th century, transporting goods from port to port.

Aphrodite inherited the cleverness, the insightfulness and the fact that she really was an open-minded person from her father. So, when it was about time, she preferred to “exchange” her old traditional family house (placed in the center of GALAXIDI, on Mama’s Square) with the wide open horizon home, (a bit further though), on the Kalafatis’s coast.

She chose this particular place, mainly because she distinguished 3 advantages in it:
1st nobody and nothing could ever blockade this amazing sea view, 2nd the sea is right at “your feet”, and 3rd you can feel the breeze from the mountains.

She started by giving birth to her dream, and I’m glad my parents continued it. The Cretan love for the sea and nature, (because of our origin from my father’s side), met the simplicity and modesty of Central Greece (from my mother’s side), by creating an enchanting result.

Even from far away, the moment you see that house, you think that it is part of the environment, and it gives you this sense of calmness and serenity which sails you in PARADISE right away.

Its 2000 m2 wonderful Mediterranean garden, is so lovely, and it can be explored in all seasons.

In summer, the geraniums, the grapes, and the aromatic herbs will give a scent to your summer laziness.

In Autumn, the colours become vivid again, the olive trees lean their branches by the heaviness of their black olives, and as the tree leaves become red, right before their falling, and the summer swimmers leave the beach, you’ll taste the sweetest feeling of melancholy.

In Winter, the scenery becomes a little wild, as you can watch the stormy sea, surrounded by the snowy GIONA and PARNASSOS mountains, and at the same time, sitting by the fire, enjoying a cup of tea or coffee makes you feel so warm and cozy.

In Spring, the buds of the citrus trees will scent the air, everywhere. Get ready to be surrounded by the most beautiful colours!!!

Its two verandas, either the one in front, having the most magnificent view of the sea or the second one, located at the back in the garden, (entrance by the kitchen), gives the guests the opportunity to enjoy every meal all day long, almost throughout every season of the year.

The interior is spacious and functional. The three bedrooms allow privacy and seclusion, when needed, and at the same time, the open attic is ideal for a nap or as a playroom for the children, or for those who feel like children. The living room is placed at the heart of the house. In winter time, the burning fireplace, the view of the sea and listening to the songs of our favorite Van Morrison had always make the perfect combination.

The decoration has been chosen very carefully. In every room, there is a piece of furniture inherited by grandma’s Aphrodite family house, such as the double bed in the senior bedroom, the two chairs in the middle bedroom or the small yellow table in the 3rd bedroom .

Old and modern furniture, all painted in pale shades, combined with the view of the sea and the pure nature, will complete the sense of peacefulness and relaxation for somebody to live the perfect holidays.

Où se situe le logement

Galaxidi, Grèce

My Location

Aphrodite’s Coast House is located 800m outside the center of Galaxidi, on Kalafatis Coast. It used to be the place, where Captains fixed their ships, as the sea is pretty shallow there and so they found it easy to unload them.

Today, there is a modern beach, and also a pool, a playing yard, a restaurant and a bar. For those who prefer isolation, peace and, swimming in deeper waters, the coast right outside the house will be perfect. The rocks create a natural wide spot where somebody can lay on a towel and enjoy the sun and the crystal waters.

The location is magical. It is like a lake being placed on “the Navel of Earth” as it is only 32,4 km far from DELPHI and its famous Museum, the Temple of Apollo and the “PHRYNICHUS” Theater, where during summer, lots of performances take place.

28,8 km far from AMFISSA, the capital of the Municipality of Delphi, in the middle of the larger olive grove of GREECE, numbering approximately 1.200.000 olive trees, a lovely archeological museum and the traditional neighborhood of “HARMAINA” where tanners used to work.

43,7 km far from ARACHOVA the picturesque village, with its famous ski center and its tasteful local products like the “formaela cheese” and sausages.

61,4 km far from the HOSIOS LOUKAS monastery, which is one of the most important monuments of Middle Byzantine architecture and its art has been listed on the UNESCO’S World Heritage Sites.

213 km away from ATHENS or 387 km from THESSALONIKI.

On the west, you can reach NAFPAKTOS in 66,3 km, the beautiful capital of Aetolia- Acarnania municipality, and its ancient port and castle.

92,6 km far from PATRA, the 3rd largest city in GREECE by crossing the RIO – ANTIRIO BRIDGE which is a marvel piece of engineering, or 209 km from ANCIENT OLYMPIA which is one of the most popular and worth seeing archeological monuments in Greece.

Of course, you can go nowhere and just stay in the beloved GALAXIDI which is an also fascinating attraction. You can visit the Maritime Museum, where my grand-grand father’s ship watercolour painting is being kept, as well as the archeological and maritime stamp collection, the Tomb of Lokros and the St. Nikolas Church with its awesome wood – carved icon screen.

In conclusion, GALAXIDI is a blessed place, and this is why it is so difficult to be described in a few words.

ABOUT ME Although I grew up in Athens, Galaxidi has always been my "home sweet home" (my secret place, my favorite place) as it was the place where my parents and I used to spend each day of our holidays. Today, I live in Galaxidi, permanently, in order to enjoy a more peaceful way of life in the countryside, rather than living in the madness of a large and always busy city. Of course, Athens will always be my essential way Out. I love decorating houses and according to my friends' opinion I'm pretty good at it. The concept is to make everybody feel relaxed, cozy and at home.
