We have recently returned from a fantastic holiday staying at Villa Mandola. This is a truly magical place. The villa itself is impeccable, with beautiful views over mountains and countryside towards the sea. The location, close to beautiful villages but just a ten minute drive to the capital Argostoli, could not be better. It is difficult to drag yourself away from the beautiful pool area but there are lovely beaches close by to explore (Avithos was our favourite) and if you hire a jeep as we did then you can easily reach some breath-taking locations such as the village of Assos and Myrtos beach.
However, it is the owners of Villa Mandola that make this such a special place. They made us incredibly welcome, from picking us up at the airport, to cooking us a beautiful Greek meal on our arrival. We have not experienced hospitality such as this at a villa and it made our holiday incredibly special. The fridge was packed with food for breakfast throughout the week which was just what we needed before a hectic day spent relaxing by the pool! As mentioned in other reviews, there are also lots of other lovely surprises throughout the week!
This was the most relaxing holiday we have ever had and we cannot wait to return!
