During our trip to Alonnisos in 2007 we met a wonderful couple from the UK who have since become great friends of ours. They have owned a home on Alonnisos for nearly 20 years and a few years ago had the home expanded to include a second floor. During one of our trips I had the opportunity to tour this home and it’s absolutely lovely. It is offered as a rental property part of the year.
This home provides tremendous views of the Aegean Sea (see picture to your right), and is conveniently located on the slopes of the mountain upon which the Old Village of Alonnisos rests. Because it’s situated away from the very center of the old town, it’s generally a very quiet area. From this house it’s perhaps a seven minute walk to the bus stop in the Old Village, and about a five minute walk to the entrance of the donkey path that leads down to the port town of Patitiri.
You also can easily stroll down to the the nearby beach at Megalos Mourtias in about 20 minutes or so. The photo above left shows a view from a south-facing lower window facing the living room and kitchen, while the photo to your right is of one of the two updstairs bedrooms. Unlike many rental homes in Alonnisos, this home features a bathroom and shower on both the ground floor and upper level, so there’s no need to climb down and up stairs to visit a restroom.
