But the true gem is the rooftop terrace! Very nicely designed and well equipped to have breakfast/lunch/dinner and sunbaths. With a great view of the bay & sea. Furthermore we truly liked the location, in the 'center' of the small village of Almyrida: nice restaurants, sandy beach and water sports rental just meters away. And Panos is a great and engaged host. Well recommended.

The villa is very comfortable with stunning views from the upstairs balcony. The pool and garden area are super; plenty of sun beds and very pretty. The kitchen is well equipped. We were very well looked after by Alexi and Stephanos; the house was beautifully clean and well presented on our arrival with 3 visits for cleaning and fresh laundry during our two week stay. Locking ourselves out of the villa was calmly and swiftly dealt with by Alexi telling us to go ahead with our plans for the day and he'd sort things out! We enjoyed many an evening watching the beautiful sunset from the balcony whilst sipping the very pleasant, local wine! The local taverna and shop are run by the charming Ioanni and George respectively who were both very friendly and welcoming. Food at the Taverna was always excellent and very good value. We enjoyed trips to Almyrida and Georgiopolous, we survived the Samaria Gorge hike!! If thinking of doing it research it carefully to make sure it is for you. Stunning scenery but mighty challenging even for the reasonably fit!! Would unhesitatingly recommend this villa for anyone who wants a super, relaxing holiday, in a quiet and charming location.
