Our home

We are a Greek-Norwegian family of four - mum Tove, dad Christos and two teenage boys, living on the ground floor of Villa Kalypso. We are offering the first floor apartment for exchange. Otherwise, this apartment is a part of our little B&B - in the 3000 square meters garden there is also a small house with two studios and our family run restaurant.
Currently, Christos and I (Tove) are looking for max one week´s exchange in August 2011, somewhere reasonably close to Easy jets destinations from Thessaloniki, Greece - which is the international airport situated one and a half hour drive from us. Basel, Berlin, Dortmund or Milan...
Our apartment has loads of space and fantastic views from all the balconies (there are balconies outside all bedrooms, plus the bathroom!). As we normally rent this to tourists, the kitchen is very basic with a refrigerator, a small cooker and water boiler - you can make small, simple meals, but not aim for big time cooking. There is no washing machine, but you can use our. All bedrooms have ceiling fan for summer. Baby cots are available.
It is child friendly and we have toys, children books (and books for adult), lego - plus there is a playground and sandpit in the garden.
In the garden you will also find a tiny vineyards, chickens and our organic vegetable plot. Not to mention our cats and a very friendly dog.

Who we are

  1. We are Christos and Tove - Tove is originally for Norway, but have lived here since 1993. We have two sons, Jason (17) and Alexandros (15) . Sometimes mum and dad are "kicked out" from home and will travel alone!:)
    In addition to running the B&B Tove is also a food writer. Christos got an early retirement from the Greek Electricity company and now works with the B&B. He is also a passionate vegetable gardener and loves to make his own tsipouro (the Greek variation of Italian grappa)!
    We both love to cook - and to explore places with a great cuisine and good wines!:)

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We live on the edge of the charming and traditional village of Eleftheres, where the main work activity is farming - especially grapes, olives and fruits. The village is situated in a hillside, three kilometers from the sea - and some of the best beaches in Greece. You can go by bus, which stops on several beaches on its way to town. In the village, a few minutes from the house by foot, you will find grocery store, bakery, butcher, pharmacy and several traditional Greek coffee shop, plus one bar. By the seaside is the popular and lively summer resort Nea Peramos, with its beachside tavernas, restaurants and coffee shops.
But you can also visit ancient sites, remote mountain villages and small towns, stunning stalactite caves, healing mud and minerals baths - to mention some.
Though Greece is mainly known has a summer destination, this area is great all year round. It is excellent for beautiful walks in the mountains and we even have a ski center only one and a half hours drive away. Great for rock climbing.
