We have visited many Greek islands over the years and stayed in many villas. I can honestly say this has to be one of the best. Villa Christos was perfect for us (with 2 teenage daughters), the pool an absolute Godsend in the heat, and Vassiliki only a short drive away. At first we worried about Villa Petros being so close & whether we would get the privacy we wanted, but the position of the pools & the living space meant it was never an issue. Noel was the perfect host - he told us his policy was never to go IN the villa while we were staying there- this was different to everywhere else we've stayed & was a real bonus. Yet he was there cleaning the pool & giving us new bedding just when he said he would. He arranged our car hire for us - using a local guy rather than a big international company, it cost E660 for 2 weeks. (note: you DEFINATELY need a car!).
The whole Vass experience was one of lovely unspoiled, Greek (yet welcoming all nationalities) hospitality. We felt we were part of a small community where people started to recognise us & wave as we passed. There are lovely beaches both near & further afield, and the windsurfing (apparently! - according to Geraint)is to die for!
This is a place we would come back to time & time again - it still has the charm of an unspoilt Greek island town.
Negatives? hardly any. Vass is further from the airport than we thought (but then we didn't research it very well so probably our fault). The road to the villa is - well - Greek! Narrow, crowded, rough - a nervous driver would have a fit! Luckily we weren't so it was no problem.
If you want a proper Greek holiday experience, with the luxury of a lovely private villa, access to fabulous restaurants & water sports, with views you never take for granted, this is definitely the place for you. We recommend it whole heartedly.
