Things to do from a holiday home in the Cyclades, Greece

Holidays to Cyclades Islands are all unique, but there are some characteristics which run through the vast majority of the 24 inhabited islands.

Extremely clean and well decorated, with everything you need for a family holiday, the house is also spacious and cool. Sarah was extremely efficient in dealing with our booking and any questions we had and the trip was made so easy by being met at the airport and then being greeted by Iro the Villa manager at the house. She was really excellent and was keen to make sure we had all the information we needed to enjoy the island. Once settled in, the house offers options through the day; a great place to breakfast in the courtyard, cool rooms to retreat to during the heat of the day and a wonderful terrace and plunge pool to cool down in during the afternoon. The house is in a a quiet location in Exa Gonia, wonderful to retreat to after the buzz of the busy towns such as Ioa and Fira. Sarah arranged car hire and this is essential if you want to explore the island or simply to do the supermarket run! All in all, I couldn't recommend Sarah and her team - and her house - more highly. You can book with confidence that you're in for a real treat. And lastly, we have to mention the food. It would be difficult to order a poor meal. The taverna close to the house is really excellent!

Beautiful home and wonderfully decorated throughout. Paulos and Vana, the owners, were extremely courteous and welcoming. The views were breathtaking, the pool was excellent and all the spaces were clean and of high quality. The mattresses were extremely comfortable and the sheets and towels were all clean. Anywhere you chose to sit and relax, whether by the pool, by the bbq area or in the house, if was very relaxing and comfortable. A true holiday villa. Very close to the best beaches and villages on the island. Would definitely recommend this property.

The house is beautiful inside and out and had everything we needed. We especially liked sunbathing on the roof top and cooling off in the plunge pool. The village itself is traditional and peaceful but is a good base for exploring the rest of the island. Mark and Christine were very welcoming and gave us good tips on where to go and arranged a boat trip for us. We visited a lot of the restaurants in the welcome pack and enjoyed them all. We hope to return one day! Chris and Amy
