Fantastic villa with great modern facilities.

5 of 5
This was a fantastic villa with great modern facilities. The Villa was exceptionally clean - spotless. The owner of the villa was very welcoming and was on hand to help out immediately if required. She was so kind to cook for us a traditional Greek dinner on our second week. There was a cleaner and pool cleaner every few days and they were excellent. The property rental company were also very good and helpful, with various recommendations when I asked for certain things like car hire and bike hire. Car hire is essential as the villa is in the countryside, although only 5-10 mins drive away from the nearest supermarket. Overall, we had a great holiday and I would recommend it to others.

Relaxing, good location, Well equipped

5 of 5
Excellent villa, tastefully decorated and with all the facilities to enjoy a relaxing stay. The owners were quick to communicate and the local agent was efficient and pleasant to deal with. The location is in a quiet location, but a short journey to the local town. Overall a very pleasant experience and would not hesitate to recommend a stay here.
