Situated at Dilhso 5 minutes from Nea Styra. Just 150 m up hill from a secluded beach of sand and shingle in its own delightful gardens is our lovely house. First house on the left in picture below. The house consists of a ground floor that is built back into the hillside with low ceilings affording a cool retreat. Here is a sitting area, dining area, well-equipped kitchen with a full cooker and fridge freezer, and a bathroom with a corner bath. Outside is a large area paved in Karyston stone adjoining the barbecue, shaded by a pine tree and with views to the sea. The washing machine is situated under the steps that rise to the first floor balcony. The roofed balcony runs round three sides of the property thus ensuring there is always some shady area in which to sit and take in the views to the hills or out across the island dotted bay towards the mainland. The upstairs has higher pine clad ceilings and consists of a good-sized living room with air conditioning, a bed settee and two bedrooms and a toilet/shower-room. The main double bedroom has French doors onto the balcony through which one can look down to the beach. The rear bedroom has twin beds and a view to a beach in the other direction. The floors are tiled throughout and the bathrooms have been re-fitted.
All bed linen and towels are provided as well as a welcome pack of some basic provisions. The house is cleaned twice a week. Visitors are given a contact number in case of problems and the local residents are friendly and helpful.

Evia or Euboia is the 2nd largest Greek Island. It stretches along the eastern side of the mainland and is easily accessed from Athen's International Airport. The hamlet of Diliso is a short drive from the resort of Nea Styra. It is also on the narrowest part of the island so it is easy to visit the coves on the Aegean side. The island is blessed with natural and historical interest. Of natural interest are the beaches, hills, forests, hot springs and mountains. Of historical interest are the paleolithic 'Drako Spiti', the ancient Greek port of Eretria, and the medieval fort at Karystos.
Walking in the spring and Autumn is amazing, wild flowers attract the bees from the many hives that produce the traditional Greek honey. In the Summer the beach is the place to go during the day then gather on the promenade in Nea Styra to enjoy a stroll and choose a sea-front table to enjoy the fresh food.

The flower house was an amazing holiday home for us when we stayed in Greece. There was an easy-to-access beach about 150 m from the house. Else really enjoyed relaxing on this beach though there were a couple more beaches we visited that were also lovely! Whilst we were there, we experienced the baby swallows talking their first fly from their nest just outside the house. The house housed many types of wildlife that we enjoyed studying. The garden was also full of flowers which gave a lovely view from the balcony. On a hot day, the outdoor shower is cool and refreshing and my dad and I used it nearly everyday. Our visit to The Flower House was a real success and we hope that others enjoy their trip as much as we did.

We visited The Flower House at Easter and the whole holiday was magical. The accommodation, the sunshine, the wild and cultivated flowers, the beach, the walks and the food were all very special however the high light was the candle lit procession and the Easter service at the church - the atmosphere was so memorable that if I close my eyes for a moment I can transport myself back to the sounds and sights of this wonderful, relaxing island.

What a fabulous place. What a fabulous location. What a fabulous island - Evia.
This is a truly superb place and so close to a very quiet almost private beach and yet close enough to Nea Styra with all its resources, fishing harbour, tavernas, supermarket etc. All this just 2 hours from athens. We had a brilliant time - thank you Shena.

If you enjoy holidays with a true local feel, then the Flower House is for you. After arriving on the island by local ferry (wonderful blue seas ans skies), you'll find yourself in the local port where you're immediately immersed in local shops and tavernas; not a high street name in site. The house sits in a quiet local (which runs down to the local beach), has a very pretty garden, good comfortable accommodation with an ample balcony around the first floor (with views of the sea beyond),for relaxing in sun or shade throughout the day; great for evening drinks too.
Plenty of local places to eat, lots of lovely small beaches and villages a bit further afield to discover.

I've been visiting The Flower House with friends an family for the last 10 years. I love it. When I think of it I can feel my skin tingle like when I've spent the day in the sea breeze, I can smell the garden, hear the lap of the sea and the daily glow of orange sunsets.
The villa is simple and charming with amazing views. It quickly becomes a home, with everything you need to cook and be comfortable. The fresh food in Greece is delicious and eating on the balcony is magical.
In the cooler seasons it's a good base to walk from. In the warmer months it's the nearby sea where I spend my days.
The small town Nea Styra is a favourite spot for Greek's from athens and so the food and bars are fantastic and full of friendly Greeks.
