The hamlet of Diliso from the road
The Greek Island of Evia or Euboea is the perfect holiday island for that 'away from it all' vacation especially for those who prefer rental of a self-catering villa or apartment for their holidays. The Flower House set on the hillside in the tranquil hamlet of Dilhso is an ideal location. Just 150m up hill from the beach it can be seen far left in the photo.


 The combination of beautiful beaches, crystal clear seas, forests, mountains and hot springs with the lively tavernas, fresh food, wine and ouzo provides a first class self catering holiday destination of distinction. This is a very Greek island, it remains unspoilt by mass tourism but many Athenians come to stay on the island in the Summer.
 Evia remains little known in Britain but it offers great natural assets, interesting history and the typical relaxed Greek ambience. The Flower House is very convenient for Athens International Airport with the journey taking around 2 hours via the Nea Styra ferry. Nea Styra is near the centre of the southern part of Evia so is an ideal base for exploring this part of the island.
Many beaches are uncrowded even in high season (July and August) except in the main resorts. The Greek people are very friendly and the views are stunning especially the sunsets from the balcony looking west where the sun sinks slowly behind the mainland across the island dotted bay.
