It's impossible for us to find fault with this house. Perfect location, clean, spacious, airy and just a very happy place to be. And no wasps! When the rest of the island was buzzing with them! Everyone we met was so jolly and helpful even though it was end of season. We will be back!
We have just returned from a wonderful 2 weeks in Villa Penelope.
The first thing you notice is the panoramic view across the Ionian Sea to Zakynthos and beyond. The south-west aspect makes it perfect for enjoying an ouzo in the setting sun.
Then you notice the silence. The villa is blissfully isolated yet with the reassurance of a couple of other villas nearby containing like-minded people. Every night we slept with the doors wide open (fly mesh in place although it was hardly needed) and enjoyed the sound of the sea lapping on the shores below.
The swimming pool is sparkling clean and big enough for a proper swim. There are two large, good quality umbrellas and four comfortable loungers - a welcome luxury after a hot day out, or for those lazy 'villa days'.
Inside the villa, it's every bit as good as the pictures suggest. Comfortable beds with smooth cotton sheets, good bathrooms (the third loo and washing machine are really handy), spacious layout, well-equipped kitchen... there is everything you need and more, all spotless and fully functioning.
Paraskevas, the owner, is a delightful man who takes pride in his two villas and does everything to ensure you have a good holiday. At the same time, he respects your privacy. He offers many nice little touches that make you feel special. He works hard and really deserves his success. We were sad to say goodbye to Paraskevas and will always think of him as a friend.
If you're after a bit of luxury on a beautiful island, with perfect beaches and interesting day trips close at hand, we absolutely recommend Villa Penelope (and Odysseus next door).
