There is plenty of information about things to do in the local area and further afield. Would definitely recommend to family and friends

It has everything a home away from home needs and is very relaxing, especially the balcony and patio area where we spent most of our time when at the villa. The kitchen is well equipped along with the living area where books, beach supplies, music facilities and even games were provided which all came in useful. During our stay we walked to all the local areas including bars, restaurants and the beach although a rental car is recommended if you wish to view more of the beautiful island. Overall we had a brilliant holiday and cannot wait to return.

It is clean and well maintained, with the local manager giving excellent service with a personal touch. Nothing is too much trouble. We would definitely recommend this, and the other villas in St Basil's olive grove. The mountain views are breathtaking and nearby Gavalochori village is a delight, with two excellent tavernas. 2.5km away the seaside village of Almyrida offers a range of shops, bars, tavernas and seaside activities. Top tip:use AutoClub car rentals.
