Kastelli Blu is a beautiful Greek island holiday house for rent on Kalymons Island. A modern Greek villa recently renovated by an interior designer, this is one of Kalymnos' few absolute waterfront holiday houses available for short or long term rental. Not only is the interior of the house beautiful, there are incredible views from this European holiday villa as it is built on elevated land allowing for exhilarating views of the Aegean sea and Telendos island. With a path to the sun-bleached rocks and water from the house, the limestone mountains behind the house for the ultimate in privacy, and quiet, the stage is set for an idyllic Europe Holiday and Greek Island Escape.

Kalymnos is one of Greece's most historic and beautiful islands. The locals are known for their good humor and friendliness and are proud of the island's sponge diving history. Today, Kalymnos is renowned as one of the world's best rock climbing destinations.
Apart from exploring the port of Pothia (the hub of Kalymnian daily life), the island offers pockets of quiet, beaches with tavernas or isolated spots for couples. A 5 minute trip on a fishing boat from Myrties brings you to Telendos island - a perfect day trip for lunch, climbing or a visit to the naturalist beach.
Kalymnos offers an array of activities including rock-climbing and diving (courses for both are available), hiking, cycling, walking, exploring or soaking up rays on one of its many beaches. Authentic Greek cuisine with a Kalymnian twist is on offer for those in search of culinary adventures. It is the perfect island for couples wanting to unwind and relax, those in search of the adventure or for families seeking a safe and friendly environment for their children.

"Magical, Mythical, Mystical Kastelli Blu"
From the moment I arrived I was completely captivated by its beauty and within moments, months of built-up stress accumulated from my fast-paced world back home began melting away.
Each morning I would wake up and make myself a cup of traditional Greek coffee and soak up the magnificent view from the kitchen window. I would then enjoy my coffee and breakfast on my very own private terrace facing the majestic island of Telendos. After a trek to one of the many quaint churches on the island I would go for a delicious swim to cool down and snorkel in the crystal clear waters of the Aegean sea … right on my door step! I spent the rest of my days either painting, discovering secret beaches, villages, meeting the friendly locals and mountain climbing with friends.
It's hard to describe how peaceful and serene Kastelli Blue is – my little piece of paradise is far enough away from the main town of Pothia and yet close enough if you need to tap into the local vibe, do a little souvenir shopping, go to a classic taverna for lunch or listen to a local DJ at one of the bars in the evening – its all there if you want it.
This is no quaint rental folks – if you are looking for a luxe, super cool and stylish boutique hideaway, look no further – every detail has been thoughtfully researched and you're every need is provided for. Its so dreamy here – you'll be bathed in the classic Hellenic blue and white through the décor; depending on the time of year the aroma of wild jasmine, thyme and basil will be wafting through the apartment; not to mention the sound of the goat bells chiming.
They're friendly, warm and extremely helpful - they truly made planning my trips easy and enjoyable. The accommodation was always ultra clean; the beds comfortable and the sheets and towels all soft and fresh. Amenities, full kitchen utensils, robes, slippers, beach towels and even sun loungers are all provided. There is also free Wi-Fi and great connection which is hard to come by in some places I've stayed!
In June 2011 and August 2012 I stayed here for two weeks – it's one of my favourite destinations and I am about to book another 2 weeks for this September! Stop your search and book now – I promise you won't regret it.
What I loved
1. My own private terrace
2. Décor and attention to detail
3. The location is the best on the Island, you will not be disappointed with the views
4. The oversized shower
5. The complimentary bottle of wine always goes down well while watching the sunset on the first night
1. Take a trek up to one of the many churches – they're everywhere
2. Take a boat cruise around the island
3. Rent a car – it's cheap
3. Take a boat trip over to the island of Telendos
4. The island is renowned for sponge diving – don't go home without a few

"a quintessential greek island experience"
We stayed at Kastelli Blu for a week in July. The house is located right on the water just a few minutes from Massouri and overlooks the island of Telendos. The owners have a great eye for design which is reflected in the eclectic style of the house. It has a fresh, relaxing feel about it. It is well appointed with quality furnishings and fixtures throughout and excellent attention to detail. A beautiful location and a memorable stay. We highly recommend it.
