A cottage with views - the Greek islands

Staying in a villa on holiday gives you the freedom to do what you want; when you want, and if you fancy Greece as a destination, I have found a stunner! This pretty little two bedroom cottage stole my heart when I came across it, and if you were going to the Greek islands, don't you agree this would be the perfect place to stay?

Having had a look at lots of private rental accommodation in Greece, it seems unusual to find places on the beach, and you have to admit its location alone is stunning. Alonissos is the sleepiest of the four Sporades islands in the Aegean, and while there is no airport on the island, you can fly into Skiathos and take a ferry from there (approximately two hours fifteen minutes).

The extra travel time is well worth it, and while Sea Horse Cottage was once a fisherman's cottage, it is now a comfortable two bedroom retreat. Although the accommodation is very comfortable, the outside space and views are what you come for. Just imagine being a few steps away from your private terrace to the beach.

The cottage is in a secluded location, and shares the beach with just one other house (which can also be rented). It is in a secluded location; and car hire is recommended, but that isolation is the beauty of this place. If you do crave company, the pretty port of Steni Vala is only ten minutes drive away, and has waterfront shops, tavernas and cafe bars. You can also hire a local boat to explore the island's coastline. The Greek islands are all about enjoying island life, and there's no doubt the cottage provides a dramatic vantage point for watching the yachts and fishing boats pass by.

Have you ever stayed in a villa or cottage on the beach? Tell me about it below.
