The villa is situated on the edge of the hill village of Kournas with a backdrop of mountains and stunning views towards the Mediterranean. Our experience echoes those of earlier reviewers. A beautiful villa, inside and out, with high quality fixtures and fittings and a welcoming atmosphere. It feels as though one is staying in someone's home rather than a holiday let. The walk down the Imbros Gorge and visit to the Dourakis winery lived up to their recommendation, as did the friendliness of the village shops and tavernas, an easy stroll from the villa. ‘Mister Chris’ is certainly well known locally and seems an excellent excuse for more offers of Raki – Yammas! One day of rain highlighted the surprisingly fast broadband. Ideal for downloading missed programmes with iPlayer. The unusual clouds also limited the solar powered water heater, but the immersion backup came to the rescue of the next users of the shower! Although a car or taxi is essential for reaching the property, there is no need to travel far to enjoy the small towns and villages nearby. Likewise for access to the lake and beach. We can't recommend Villa Caliz enough, and look forward to visiting again.

The villa was beautiful, clean and exceptionally spacious. The owners could not do enough, their hospitality was very welcoming and nothing was too much. There is a lot for the children to keep themselves entertained with, hide an seek being their favourite, with so much space available to them. The village is about 10/15 min walk and has some nice taverns and restaurants. The people are extremely friendly and the beach is very clean. The weather wasn't hot but it was pleasant during the day, needing sweaters / cardigans in the evening. Overall a great break and we would most certainly visit again.
