Heaven

5 of 5
Just returned from a 9 night stay at the Villa May - wish it could have been longer. We loved every minute of our stay at Villa May. The villa is in a lovely spot - close enough to Plaka but quiet enough to give you all the privacy you need. The villa is equipped with everything you will need and having the Wi-Fi was a bonus. If we get the chance we will be back again next year - hopefully for 2 weeks this time.

Beautiful villa situated between the hills and sea

5 of 5
My husband and I hired the villa with our friends who have a toddler and we were impressed with the provision of necessaries for young children. The pool is gorgeous and very well maintained, as is the villa itself. We enjoyed the villa's three balconies and patio with table and chairs, the latter of which we made good use of for dinning alfresco. Rosemary was on hand to welcome us and assist us with an any issues we had. Although we went in low season we enjoyed temperatures of 22-36oC and brilliant sunshine. We hope to visit again soon!
