Review for stay from 23 June 2018 to 23 June 2018

5 of 5
Stayed here at the end of June 2018. We were a group of eight adults and one baby. The four bedrooms are very well presented and have the added bonus of air conditioning, as does the rest of the villa. There was plenty of storage space in all of the bedrooms. Three of the bedrooms open onto the terrace with the fourth being at the back of the villa. The fourth bedroom appeared somewhat dark as it only had one window which was above head height so does not benefit from the panoramic views enjoyed from the other three bedrooms. The main indoor living space is situated on the first floor. It took us a while to get used to going upstairs, from the outside eating terrace which is on the ground floor, to get drinks and food but its only one flight of stairs and good exercise on what was otherwise a very lazy holiday! Access to the terrace and pool is either via the bedrooms or out through the front door and around the side of the building which means walking down a reasonable steep slope so we stuck with walking through one of the bedrooms. There is a staff office just up the hill from the villa and everyone was very helpful and pleasant. If you need anything they will go out of their way to help you to ensure that your stay is as pleasant as possible. The grounds to the villa are kept very clean, with the cleaner coming most days to wash the patio areas. Bed linen was also changed once during our eight night stay and so were the bathroom towels. Beach towels are provided but, as explained when we arrived, these were not changed during our stay. There is however a washing machine and dishwasher which both came in very handy during our time at the villa. The villa is well situated for visiting a number of local beaches but you do need a car. The local Taverna is about an eight minute down hill walk away. Yes, this does mean that its uphill on the way back - not an easy walk as some of it is up a dirt track and it is quite steep so we couldn't take the babies pushchair via this route. The Taverna delivers food to the villa - we chose this option one night and the food arrived hot and was of a good standard. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and our memories of the amazing sunrises and sunsets which can be seen from the villa balconies and terraces will stay with us for a long time to come.
