We have just returned from a fantastic holiday at Villa Jade, what a great location! The view is one you could never get tired of, absolutely stunning. We managed to find our way down into town by foot, a bit of a tortuous route, zig zagging our way down the hill, but it wasn't too bad and we could make it to the roundabout, by the taxi rank, in around 25 minutes. We found "taxi lady" in the phone and she was great, always trying to chat and playing our favourite tunes on the way back up the hill. That's a great idea to have a mobile for holidaymakers to use and we stuck some credit on before leaving, for our successors. Roger was really friendly and helpful although we didn't need him too much as everything went so smoothly, I guess he gets more hassle when there are things to complain about.
The villa itself was ideal, great pool and sun terrace with that fantastic view, and although we knew the spa was there it was even better than we'd imagined, for chilling out. It was well equipped with all we needed such as toaster, kettle, I-pod dock and a good fridge freezer for keeping drinks ice cold. The water chiller was an unexpected bonus that saved us having to buy lots of heavy bottles of water, just ring the number and the Guy would deliver for 7 tl. We would take a little walk up the hill from the Villa each day, where there are two small shops to get fresh bread and cheese etc, plus an abundance of juices to mix with the vodka! If we needed anything else we'd get it in the evenings after our meal and carry it back in the Taxi.
We ate out every night and were amazed that some of the "Front of House" guys at the restaurants, remembered us from last year (Pisces, Gourmet and Paparazzi). The two new restaurants, that seem to get a lot of praise on the Forums didn't disappoint, Sade and Escudos were both fantastic, with great food and very friendly staff. It's amazing how they get so many wonderful restaurants in one small town. Gourmet, Kalamaki, The Nar, The Old Trading House were all lovely and although Gironda is a lovely place, with a really nice pre drinks bar area, we must have made bad choices that night because we found the food there a little below par compared to others.
Emma was really helpful throughout the booking process and promptly answered any questions, even "tweaking" the cleaners timetable on the last day to allow for our late departure.
A very, very enjoyable time had by all.
Owner's Response: Thank-you for your informative review. We tend not to get complaints - thankfully!!, as Roger our managing agent is always around and about to help with the general up-keep of the villa, he organises the cleaning rota' and advises guests on day trips, places of interest, restaurants etc. We are very fortunate to have such a great management company working with us to ensure guests get the most out of their prescious holiday time. It's great to know how much you all enjoyed your stay. All The Best, Emma, x
