Welcome to our sunny flat on the beautiful unspoilt island of Oinousses in Greece's east Aegean! Extensively restored in late 2018, the property is perfectly positioned for an authentic lifestyle experience, in the heart of the island's only village -- a short stroll to beaches, restaurants, shops & the revitalized waterfront. A comfortable space with air conditioning & new kitchen, shaded outdoor sitting area, marble bathroom and platform bed. Accessed by exterior staircase/village lane.

The space
Welcome to our historic home on the beautiful, unspoilt island of Oinousses in Greece's east Aegean!

The marble flat, completely renovated in late 2018 for new holiday rentals, is located under the patio flat while being completely autonomous. Along with the house, all three properties are perfectly positioned for an authentic lifestyle experience, in the heart of the island's only village, Aignoussa -- just a 5-10 minute stroll to beaches, restaurants, shops and the revitalized waterfront.

The marble flat takes its name from the new all-marble bathroom, which also features a new washing machine. The flat’s other distinguishing feature is the double platform bed, which provides more space, possibly for additional guests on the double sofa bed under the platform. The 35 square metre sunny space boasts a new kitchen which leads to an outdoor sitting area (Note: this is the dead end of a public lane so there is occasional passing foot traffic). The accommodation would suit a couple, a small family, a group of friends and solo adventurers seeking a local island lifestyle.

The flat is accessed by an exterior staircase or a village lane. Virtually everything is new (2018): bed, mattress, linen, lighting, washing machine, oven/stove, rugs, outdoor furniture, kitchen equipment.

The Space:

* 30 square metres (~325 square feet)
* Completely renovated in 2018, new holiday rental
* 1 bedroom with double platform bed (accessed by staircase) and double sofa bed
* Sofa in living area
* Accommodates 5 in double bed, double sofa bed and sofa
* 1 new all-marble bathroom
* New kitchen
* Outdoor sitting area (Note: the dead end of a public lane so there will be occasional passing foot traffic and the possibility of a parked car)

Guest access
Guests have sole use of the entire 30 square metre flat.

Other things to note
This charming self-contained accommodation in a historic, freestanding house would suit a couple, a small family, a group of friends and solo adventurers seeking an authentic island lifestyle.
Note: the outdoor sitting area is located in the dead end of a public lane so there is occasional passing foot traffic and the possibility of a parked car.

Location

Oinoússai, Greece

Paulette’s home is located in Greece.
Because the island can only be reached by sea, it has largely escaped tourist development. But it's not some poor backwater: the island has spawned some 30 millionaire shipping families, whose descendants have sought to control development and contribute to improvements and infrastructure. The island and its families have been described in numerous books and newspaper features for its unique history. There are about 1,000 permanent local residents with the population swelling in the summer when non-residents return to their roots.

More information
The atmosphere is of a picturesque simplicity, replete with the sights typical of Greek villages: colourful wood fishing boats setting out for the daily catch; merchant vessels and tankers plying the passage between Oinousses and Chios en route to exotic destinations; cruise ships and ferries bound for the many neighbouring islands; foreign-flagged private yachts and sailboats maneuvering in the marina; local children aspiring to be sailors trying to keep their dinghies in formation; seagulls swooping and dipping on warm air currents, townsfolk going about their business -- all to the sounds typical of Greek villages: church bells, roosters, bouzouki music, donkeys, goats and scooters.

There are five tavernas (restaurants) offering inexpensive, traditional fare, a yacht club with superb views of the waterfront and sunsets, a bank with ATM, pharmacy, post office, supermarket, bakery, police station, medical clinic and cultural events held at the Stadium and the Cultural Centre.

Hi there! I've moved frequently in my life, hungry for adventure and new experiences. I have many indelible memories of living and working in Kenya, Scotland's Highlands, Brittany and in Canada's west, north and eastern fringes. After working as a journalist in London (England) for nearly a decade, I moved to Athens (Greece), where I eventually restored a property on the small Greek island of Oinousses. I enjoy welcoming guests there so they, too, can discover its authenticity and charm. I'm also happy to accommodate guests in my Ottawa (Canada) home! My goal is to not only meet, but to exceed, my guests' expectations. See you soon! Paulette

During your stay
I may be on the island while guests are there and, in any event, I will be contactable at all times and, in my absence, a local representative will meet guests, accompany them to the flat and also be available for any enquiries or issues.
