Some days it was hard to leave and go exploring because the villa has such a gorgeous environment with spectacular views. It was absolutely sparkling clean and fantastically equipped to a very high standard that really does make you feel spoilt; it really felt like home from home. The location of the villa is superb; it is at close walking distance to all good things Platamonas town has to offer, but also far enough from the noise. There are many lovely beaches, more than we could get to see in a week, some almost empty, and even on the busy ones, you could get a decent patch of sand to yourself. I listened to the sound of the waves and watched the sunset every night and it was probably the most breathtaking sunset I have ever seen! Absolutely unreal. The communication and customer service with Tasos, the owner was excellent. We would totally recommend this home - the memories will last a lifetime! I can't wait to visit again next summer!.
