The sweet little cottage is set on the green hillside above the compact, pretty port of Steni Vala, a two minute walk from the shops, cafés and tavernas on the quayside.
You will find a small beach even closer, at the foot of the steps. A further five minutes brings you to the white pebbles and clean sea of Glyfa beach.
A stable door opens into the open-plan lounge, which has a dining table and two built-in sofas (could sleep a smaller child); and, one step up, a kitchen area containing a fridge/freezer, two electric hot plates and a microwave oven.
A second door off the kitchen gives natural throughventilation. Off the living room are the two bedrooms – one double, one twin, each with a fan – and a tiled shower room.
There is a wide covered terrace to the front running the length of the house, and from here you have lovely views over the port (great fun to watch the harbour comings and goings) to the island of Peristera. If you prefer sun, there is an open terrace to the side.
Due to low balcony walls we do not recommend Limani Cottage to families with young children. The small surrounding garden has olive, pomegranate and citrus trees.
Limani is a simple house which has plenty of traditional Greek character, with its terracotta floor tiles and a very Greek blue and white décor. Due to some 30 steps up from sea level, a stay here may be unsuited to those with walking difficulties.
