Guestbook comments from the manager
We had the most amazing holiday! The contact (we asked lots of questions and they were all answered immediately) with Yiannis before we left the UK was excellent and the care we received from his family during our stay at the villa was flawless.
The villa itself was immaculate when we arrived and we got clean towels and sheets every three days. The interior of the villa is like a show room, very modern and tastefully decorated. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the modern appliances that you could need and the beds are very comfortable. The villa itself is situated within mountains and it is designed so that regardless of which room you are in, or which balcony you sit on (there are numerous) the views are simply stunning.
Our children loved playing in the pool which was cleaned daily. The pool was also graded (deep and shallow end) making it safe for our young children. The are four sun loungers and a sun umbrella and towels provided for pool and/or beach use.
Probably due to the villas elevated position, there is always a slight wind, making the temperature pleasant rather than unbearable and this wind also seemed to control mosquitos and I can honestly say that this is the first time on holiday that we have not been bitten by mosquitos and did not need to use any form of repellants.
Although the villa information does say that you can drive cars up to the villa door itself, we tried this and were unable to and if you wish to do this I think you would need a 4x4 as the drive is very steep.
The area is quiet, picturesque and traditional. There are lots of easily reachable beaches and more tourist locations but the villa is so beautiful and the pool such good fun that our young children were reluctant to leave it to do any sight seeing. The barbecue is also very good (good butchers in Spilli) and we had one most nights.
Overall we could not have had a better time. Our every need was catered for. Everyone was welcoming, friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Our only regret is that our stay was too short. We would love to return next year and simply cannot recommend this villa and the customer service we received enough.
