Transportation from and to the port

The transportation from and to the port upon your arrival and departure is provided for free by the Blue Harpist Villas. Please provide our concierge with the relevant details (arrival/departure time, name of the ship) the soonest possible for your convenience.

 

Wi-Fi

It is provided for free across the Blue Harpist Estate. You may find the password under your router.

Please take into consideration that Pori doesn’t have a land line and therefore we use Internet via 4G, which can be unstable and at low-speed sometimes. Please avoid updates and backups that need big data consumption through the Wi-Fi.

 

Air-conditioning

All bedrooms and living rooms are air-conditioned. You may find the remote controller next to each bed. Please respect the nature and switch off the air-condition when you are not at the villa.   

 

Towels & linens

The towels and linens are being changed every three days. In case you need a change sooner than that, please place your towels at the laundry basket you may find in each bathroom. Please do not forget that water waste, electric energy and detergents jointly deteriorate significantly the environment. Please help us keep our waste at minimum.

 

BBQ

You may use the barbecue provided at the estate, at your convenience, upon availability. Please let our concierge know, accordingly. Please note that it is at a communal area so please use it considerably and with respect to the rest villas’ guests.

 

Parking

You may use the designated parking space next to the entrance of the estate. Please do not leave your car unlocked and do not park in non-designated parking spaces, as a respect to the rest villas’ guests.

 

Concierge

Our concierge is available 24/7 for anything you may need, during your stay with us. You may contact him at +30 6987699995.

 

Shopping basket

Our concierge may also arrange all the necessary grocery shopping for your stay at a 20-euro fee extra to your shopping list.

 

Pets

At Blue Harpist Villas we love our four-paw friends and we hope they also enjoy their stay and their holidays with us. Please inform us before your arrival in case you have your pet with you so that we have taken extra care of your villa. Please note that one pet per villa is allowed. As there are chances that other villas guests have pets at the same period with you, please do not leave your pet unattended and always on a leash at the communal spaces of the estate. Please do not forget to clean after them.

Koufonisia Islands

Ano Koufonisi

 

Beaches:

Note: None of the beaches at Koufonisi is organized, but they are all virgin and natural. This means that you have to have your own umbrella, straw beach mat, and beach towel.

Pori beach – 400m from your villa. When you exit our estate, just walk straight ahead towards the beach. There are two restaurants next to the beach, where you can either buy the necessary or enjoy your lunch. Majestic all day!

Italida (Platia Pounta) beach – 2.5km from your villa. Ideal for the windy days. If you go on foot, arrive at Pori beach and to your right hand-side you will find a seaside pathway. The first you will meet is Italida beach. There is no café or restaurant nearby so don’t forget to have water and fruits with you!

Foinikas beach – 2km from your villa. If you go on foot, take the road towards the port and in the middle of the route, you will find a sign to turn to the left. Take this road straight ahead and you will get to the beach. There is a hotel with a restaurant nearby, where you can either buy the necessary or have lunch.

Fanos beach – 2.2km from your villa. It is located in the middle between the beaches of Italida and Foinikas. You may arrive only on foot.

Ammos – the beach next to the port. This is the reason the port of Koufonisi is considered one of the most beautiful ports in Greece. There are small café, restaurants and a mini market around there where you can buy all the necessary.

 

Beach hopping: You may go from one beach to the other by taking the sea taxi from Pori beach (at the left hand side there is a tiny marina). There are two companies operating these small boats, Prassinos and Mavros (whichever you take, the experience is the same, only the timetable changes). You can buy a return ticket on the boat (€5 per person) and it stops at all the main beaches of the island. You may hop on and hop off as you prefer.

Kato Koufonisi

 

You may visit this uninhabited island by taking the sea taxi (either Prasinos or Mavros Tours) from the main port. You may find the route schedule at their kiosks at the port and you may buy the ticket on the spot. They leave Ano Koufonisi once per hour (15min ride).

They stop at two beaches at Kato Koufonisi:

Panagia – There is a small chapel next to the beach and hence the name. The beach is nice but you need to have your own umbrella as it is not organized. There is a small tavern there, Venetsanos, which we do not recommend for lunch, but you can buy water or coffee.

Nero (Water in Greek) – The second stop is at a more secluded beach with crystal clear blue waters and small pebbles. Again you need to have your own umbrella but your own supplies, as well, as there is nothing at this beach. You just enjoy the sun and the wonderful waters of the Aegean Sea.
