Natalia’s houses & suite are located in the traditional village of Douliana which is the ideal for those who want to escape in order to relax and have quality for their vacations. Walking into the nature and in the narrow streets, enjoying the old stone-built houses, drinking "tsikoudia" or local wine after swimming at the beach and in the evening staring the stars..
There are two traditional houses, "Dias" & "Hera" which are built of local stone and cypress wood and are suitable for 3-4 persons. Each house has its own partially covered veranda, under the shade of an olive tree. From the terraces or gardens, outstanding views of the valley are leading east to Gavalochori and the constantly changing and breathtaking landscape of the famous White Mountain range to the south.
The suite is the perfect place for honeymooners. "Agapi" is the largest suite and can accommodate up to six persons, whereas "Lydia" is a spacious four-bed suite.
The courtyard and the pool-bar area are focal points for guests who want to enjoy a drink with friends, read a book, sunbathe or swim in the pool, or just sit quietly and relax. Also, they can sit and enjoy the tranquillity of the herbs and the flower gardens or observe the wild flowers or gather herbs and vegetables (horta) in order to prepare a late lunch or evening meal.
A traditional mini-market and a coffee shop along with an outside kitchen with the traditional oven is also available for guests. Delight in the traditional dishes that served at the well-known local kafenion or drink a raki or cold beer at the nearby taverna. The sandy beaches of Almirida, Kera, and Kalyves, with numerous shopping opportunities, taverns, restaurants and cafes are in the near vicinity.
In this unique and quiet village in Douliana, the Natalia's Houses bewitch you with views of the White Mountains and the deep blue sea, and take you in the past, thinking you're somewhere that does not exist anymore, a lost paradise.
