I would recommend this villa to anyone; absolutely charming. The website really does it full justice; we got pretty much exactly what we expected. Stunning location, beautiful views, and it feels like a home. We loved the little touches like Sonia's mosaics, etc. It is a lovely place to relax and unwind. My only reservation is that I'd have preferred it if there was less traffic noise; the owners might consider building or planting something to absorb it a bit. But I don't want to overstate this: the road is quiet a lot of the time, and there is so much else to love about this place, it would not spoil your stay. The villa was very clean, and maintained to a high standard. You have complete privacy as the property is gated, and you are not overlooked by anyone.
We drove to Stoupa in the daytime, walked there in the evening. We never had any trouble parking – though getting there was sometimes awkward as there are some roads that are two-way that shouldn't be! Katerina's Supermarket is very convenient and provided us with all our needs. There are plenty of restaurants and tavernas to choose from – the best of them being at either end of the bay. We found Stoupa to be the right sort of lively – not noisy, just a pleasant buzz. We particularly enjoyed the Butcher's Taverna, where they had live music every night.
It's worth noting that, given the nature of Stoupa's beach – sandy, gently sloping, no big waves – the place attracts a lot of young families. Our teenagers had a good time also, though.
Thank you Sonia and Marc! A truly lovely place.
