Villa Nikolaos is an old farm house built more than 100 years ago.
It was restored by the owners in the beginning of decade '90 with great care and attention to keeping all the traditional elements and with much personal hard work (it was not intended initially for tourist use). It is on the edge of the village, so that no one is disturbed by the presence of residents (besides it is a very quiet small village), at the same time it is still part of the village. The view is exceptional, as it is found in the brow of a steep slope that dominates among the absolute green landscape.
