The villa is in walking distance to the beautiful beach of Lygaria or Agia Palagia, with plenty of choice of places to eat. The pool at the villa is a great place to sunbathe, followed by a cool down and everything is kept amazingly clean and tidy. We loved our time here and would definitely come again. Couldn't fault it.

Das Haus ist geschmackvoll eingerichtet, bei der Austattung hat uns nichts gefehlt, der schöne Freisitz lädt zum Frühstücken ein. Maria ist eine herzliche Gastgeberin, die uns gute Strand- und Restauranttipps gab, den Transfer zum Flughafen organisierte und sich sogar vier Wochen nach unserem Urlaub bei uns gemeldet hat, weil wir zwei Sachen im Haus haben liegen lassen. Nochmals vielen Dank an Maria!!!

Perched high on the cliff between two coves providing safe and delightful beach swimming and water sports, guests could be forgiven for spending their entire holiday simply indulging in the villa's own facilities. The sea views on three sides are nothing short of spectacular, day or night. Almost every room spoils you with a jaw-dropping vista. The villa is superbly appointed inside with every need catered for, from morning coffee through to al fresco dining, complimented by tasteful furnishings where nothing is compromised, particularly space. Outside, dedicated barbecue and pizza 'huts' add to a bar and cabana servicing the sparkling, deep pool which provides infinity views to die for. This is a venue capable of satisfying the most demanding of travellers. More than this, it beckons the most discerning.
