The villa is spotlessly clean, comfortable, bright and airy. It has a lovely pool and there was always a very welcome cooling breeze. Linen is plentiful and replaced weekly. Pool towels are provided too. The villa has a great built-in BBQ and a large eating area. This is a lovely place to spend a relaxing evening. A short drive downhill to the local town of Georgioupolis with lots of great tavernas, shops and beaches. One taverna that stood out for great food is the Paradise taverna in the centre of town. The owner, Eva, could not be more helpful. Her father, Petros, visited us frequently on his moped, often bearing gifts of homemade olive oil,wine, herbs, figs, etc etc! Google translate is vital. He was a handy source of local information and great company, he really added to our holiday! We would highly recommend this villa, we had the best holiday and would definitely return.

Everything was as described with plenty of outdoor spaces to relax. It is not huge but the villa would easily accommodate six people without feeling crowded, although there is limited kitchen space and equipment. Lake Kournas is visible from the balcony and a short drive/ walk away with places to hire kayaks and pedalos.The nearest taverna is excellent: welcoming and friendly with a good range of traditional dishes. We received really clear instructions about how to find the villa and paid an additional fee for access to wifi which worked well. The air conditioning was very welcome and the pool made for a good place to cool off too. We were delighted to be able to stay at Villa Rimampela, would be really happy to return and can recommend it without hesitation to anyone looking for a rural location that is within easy reach of both the sea and town life.
