Struggle to disagree with anything in the listings for this place. The owner was a pleasure to work with & all the further info we had after booking was faultless. The house was spotless on our arrival, it is set off the quiet road into the village about 50m down a dirt track which wasnt a problem even for our tiny peugot rental car. there is a view from the 2nd floor terrace/balcony across the village rooftops out into the gulf & most days a nice breeze so great for evenings cool downs with a g& t after a day on the beach the village itself is a 3 min walk to a small bridge where left & a further 2 mins take you to shops (basic but enough) & a few tavernas or right & a further 2 mins takes you to the small beach with its 2 well appointed but not noisy bars which cater for your beach needs with sun beds drinks & snacks.
Night time in Amaliapolis doesnt really happen much before 9:30 & during our 2 weeks we ate at most tavernas at least twice (perhaps limited choices but great fresh food). Out & about the local towns, city (Volos), & small villages are all very rural but equally charming. One word of warning would be that we never saw another English person the whole time, so if you go expecting to find a copy of the sun a pint of carling & a full english breakfast you will be sadly dissapointed. On the other hand if you want to interact & perhaps try out your dodgy Greek I cant imagine a nicer place to go, everyone we met was friendly & always eager to help. The UK we came back to seemed a far more hectic place..... …
Spacious apartment in Villa
Wonderful beach villa in authentic, beautiful, stunning Greek village.
I stayed in Amaliapolis at Villa Christina and I have to say it was one of my favorite vacations thus far. Having never heard of the town, my friends and I decided to take on an adventure and couldn't have been more pleased with our stay. The town is gorgeous, quiet, and the people are wonderful. Although there is a language barrier, every single member of the town waved hello and welcomed us into their village. We even got a tour of Athens from a local's sons! So much fun! The villa was fantastic! Well kept and we had a gorgeous view of the ocean and town from our balcony. It was spacious and Christina the owner was amazing and answered all of our questions prior to our stay. She arranged a cab for us as well. Everything about this village and villa is perfect: the food, people, beaches, prices...I definitely recommend everyone to stay here! Perfect for families, friends, and even college students like us. …
