The views...Oh. My. God. Absolutely amazing, sometimes it's hard to believe that you're actually seeing what you are seeing it is so stunning. The peaceful waterfall from the infinity pool is so relaxing and you don't hear hustle and bustle as there's no cars that will drive past the villa ever because of the designated parking. The villa is clean and the owner is an amazing amazing person. He helped me out at 10pm the night before when I was in a pinch. I am forever grateful for that. He responded immediately to ever question I had and would text or email just to check in because he knew I was traveling alone. He even answered close to 1am when the power went out and I had a mild anxiety attack! (Power came back on within 5 minutes and I assume high winds knocked it out). He is a very gracious person & host. The villa is absolutely comfortable, the balcony off the bedrooms is a great spot for morning coffee with an INCREDIBLE view. The decor is very minimalism which I love because it doesn't clutter the mind and is very clean yet feels like home. There's a washer which was nice to do laundry before leaving, and a very update kitchen with everything you need to cook a meal! The little town is quite quaint and everyone is so friendly and welcoming. Although you feel extremely remote and away from it all, it's not a far drive at all to restaurants, beaches and other attractions. This is the perfect villa to relax, unwind, do yoga by the pool and you'll probably not even turn the television on, I didn't. Lots of friendly cats will stop by to say hello also! I am a femal that was traveling along and felt extremely extremely safe staying in the villa. Perfect for families or for singles/couples. You won't regret renting Pon's villa and I hope to be back in the future!

Panos was an excellent host. He was there to greet us when we arrived and came to see us just before our taxi arrived to (sadly) take us to airport. The apartment, situated in the centre of Almyrida, is spacious and has everything you will need for your stay. We loved our holiday.
