The outdoor swimming pool of the estate lies in the citrus grove terrace above the vineyard and offers an absolutely stunning unrestricted view of Karystos bay. The pool is shared between the tenants of the estate’s four villas. Sun loungers and umbrellas, an outside shower, a spacious shaded pergola, a countertop with marble sink and a refrigerator are available to all guests.
Villa Nefeli is conveniently positioned so as to give you the opportunity to explore and fully enjoy the wider geographical region of the southern part of the island of Evia. This is an area of extreme and diverse natural beauty ranging from densely forested and remote mountainous regions, gorges, canyons, natural springs and rivers, to areas typical of the charming and very unique dry landscape one usually finds across the Cyclades Islands region. These contrasting landscapes shift and alternate constantly, offering a unique experience that will impress and excite you.
Equally vast is the number of beaches of astonishing beauty and of various shapes, styles and sizes, that are available for you to choose from throughout the wider region. From ‘organised’ and busy to completely remote, they will certainly please even the most demanding of visitors. One feature they all share in common, is the crystal clear turquoise blue water that is as inviting, as it is beautiful in every sense of the word.
The area is also packed with sites, monuments and areas of vast cultural, and archaeological significance spanning a history of millenia and a wide range of eras, from the neolithic to the classical, and beyond. Ancient Greek temples, medieval towers, castles, and Venetian fortresses, the largely unknown ‘Dragon Houses‘ or ‘Drakospita’ of yet undecided origin, believed to have been built by the tribe of ‘Dryopes’, an ancient Greek tribe of settlers that emigrated here millenia ago from the central Greek mainland, and so much more.
Taking a short hike on the imposing mountain above the town of Karystos and the estate, will lead you first to an impressive and very imposing ancient castle, ‘Castello Rosso’ or the ‘Red Castle’ that overlooks the whole bay and region of the town of Karystos. The castle had been utilised continuously during a range of eras and by several cultures and civilisations that once thrived here and being there in this historical monument enjoying the breathtaking views over the town and bay is a remarkable experience in itself.

A shortish hike further up the mountain will lead you to a Roman quarry where you still even have the opportunity to view massive incomplete pieces of ancient columns and statues that were never delivered to Rome or other parts of the Roman Empire as planned, and remain scattered across the fields.
The town of Karystos offers an abundance of shops, banks, super markets, taverns, coffee houses and restaurants for your convenience. As it is the capital of the municipality, you will find many utilities and services on offer that you would usually have to travel to reach, if residing in other areas of the region.
Evia, the second largest Greek island regarding size and population, is one of the lesser known destinations in Greece. The island of Evia, often also spelled ‘Euboea’, is a superbly wonderful and very special destination. A place that has fortunately managed to escape heavy tourist activity until now, remains unspoilt and available for you to explore and enjoy to the fullest, before it also unavoidably gives in to ‘progress’ as most places of its calibre in terms of splendour and beauty do, at some point.
It is located close to Athens and connected to the Greek mainland by car via a bridge, as well as several separate ferry boat connections departing from a number of small ports in Attica and beyond. It is therefore so much easier to visit than most other Greek islands. Yet Evia still offers the possibility to enjoy landscapes, people and local cultures still unscathed by the implications of mass visitation and tourism.
The island of Evia offers visitors a superb choice to enjoy a wonderful and mostly untouched natural environment, gastronomy and local culture, away from mass tourism and busy tiring tourist spots, while also offering quick and easy access from Athens directly by car or ferry. Furthermore, Evia boasts several places of prime cultural, archaeological, historic or simply prime aesthetic interest, and natural beauty. In essence, Evia has it all, and more.
Guests will enjoy complete and exclusive access to all areas of the villa, its private terraces and outdoor spaces, during their stay.
You can therefore choose to relax indoors or outdoors and enjoy the fantastic views in full comfort and privacy, at any time.
