The property is excellent; the views are superb and the owners were in regular touch and very helpful with local tips and advice.
Although it's not very close to the nearest town, it's easy enough to get to - down a narrow slightly bumpy road; once you're there you'll appreciate the get-away-from-it-all-feel.
The salt-water pool is lovely; good to cool off after a day trip out; and in early August was warm enough for an early morning swim. The villa is a good place to base yourselves for Epidavros, Ancient Nemea, Ancient Corinth and Nafplio too. Most interesting places are about an hour or so away. And the villa is a nice place to stay for a whole day and relax - so you don't feel obliged to go out every day.
There are a couple of local restaurants nearby (you need to drive). Otherwise the supermarket is about 20-30 mins away; the fridge and freezer is sufficiently large to stock up for several days if you wish.
The sea is literally on your doorstep and there's easy access for swimming from the rocks or down to a secluded pebbly beach. The garage is a good size and lockable - we had a Mercedes A- class, probably best sized for the roads. Though you could fit a bigger car in the garage.
The property was spotlessly clean, the cleaners came regularly, the pool was cleaned daily - it's also tastefully decorated - it had a modern, light and airy feel; the air-con worked well so it was comfortable, there's a good stereo with bluetooth a decent TV and comfortable seating. There were sufficient high quality toiletries provided in all the bathrooms, dishwasher tabs, washing detergent etc. And the owners couldn't have been any more helpful.
All in all, it was a great place to be with teen kids (because there was wifi and netflix!) and we were happy staying a whole day just relaxing - going out on alternate days.
The house was bigger than we expected with a beautiful garden and pleasingly provided all the essentials: washing power, oil, vinegar, mosquito coils, towels etc, which was great.
Rosa, the lady next door who caretakes the property was available whenever we needed her and, at my request, bought us some food for when we arrived.
The property is not quite where we thought it was as the pinpoint on the map is wrong but it is only about 1/2 a km out and a 5 minute walk from the nearest shops and tavernas.
It's an authentic home filled with plenty of stuff but it served us very well and we had a wonderful time.
