                                                    Very Enjoyable Stay

                                                    5 of 5
                                                    We found the villa to be very good and quiet and great views. It is very new and thus has some functions such as electric shutters which give a very safe feel also. Location is just out of the town but still easily walkable. Nearest beach is about a 5 minute drive away. We did have cause to speak to the owner a couple of times but was always very helpful and polite. I would recommend this villa to friends an family. Most local restaurants were good and value for money and local Olive Oil is first class. There is only one supermarket in town selling basic things so best to head to Mires for anything more than that and also avoid the beef it is pretty tough stick to lamb and chicken.

                                                    Perfect villa for a romantic, relaxing holiday

                                                    5 of 5
                                                    We stayed here for a week in September 2015. We were very happy with the villa and had a very relaxing holiday. The villa is in a beautiful location with lovely views. It was clean, well maintained and beautifully designed. We were looked after by Soula, the owner of the villa, she was an excellent host and made us feel very welcome. The villa is in a good location, close to good restaurants in the local village. We would highly recommend this villa, it was perfect for the 2 of us.

                                                    Fabulous villa in a magnificent location

                                                    5 of 5
                                                    Nikos and Maria are great hosts, very welcoming. The villa is superb well presented and spotlessly clean. A great welcome pack (you don't get oranges like that in the UK). The views are superb and the villa is within very easy walking distance from the fabulous village of Kamilari with great tavernas and cafenions. The beaches at Kommos, Matala and Red Beach are great. Festos is a must visit site close by.
