My husband, Dennis, myself and our daughter Lesa have recently returned from a wonderful 2 weeks stay in this beautiful villa. We arrived to a warm and friendly welcome from our delightful hosts (Christina, Catharina and Leo) We were made to feel almost like family from the minute we arrive and felt so comfortable and at home. The villa is stunning and exactly like the the photographs that attracted us to it when we found it on the website. The gardens are a treat to the eyes and a credit to Leo, who works so hard to keep them in pristine condition and seems to love every minute he spends tending all his wonderful trees and plants. At night the gardens are beautifully lit with cleverly placed lights amongst the trees and around the plunge pool and light your way to the swings, hammock and lots of lovely seating areas around this beautiful villa. Every morning we discovered bowls of fresh fruit and vegetables which had been left by Leo. He would collect them from his gardens at the rear of the villa where there were grapes, peaches, tomatoes. Peppers and much more. We had Freshly cut beautiful flowers in the villa (also from Leo’s extensive gardens) We also had fresh eggs from the chickens every day. Catharina is a lovely lady and although there was a language barrier between us, we still managed to chat and make ourselves understood ( sometimes with Leo’s help.) We were so sad to leave this idyllic place and can’t wait to return.
This is a lovely property just a couple of kilometers out of Kardamena with stunning panoramic views over the countryside, sea and distant islands to the front and mountains to the side and rear. My wife and I stayed in the main property which comprises open plan kitchen/sitting area, bedroom and small shower room, all with high quality fixtures and fitting, and the bed particularly comfortable. Our daughter stayed in the adjoining studio apartment comprising double bed, small kitchen area with fridge and shower room. Apart from a couple of very minor kitchen items items which we soon rectified the properties were very well stocked with everything you will need to self-cater. The garden is large and simply lovely with many different fruit trees and pot plants which the owner Napoleon obviously tends with great care. And talking about Napoleon he is lovely person who, having welcomed you, leaves you on your own to enjoy your stay but is contactable at any time should you have any questions or issues. We only had to contact him once when the power went off. He responded immediately and had it fixed in minutes. The property is ideally located if you want peace and quiet but still want to be close to Kardamena for shops and restaurants, and to other places of interest on the island. It is also ideally located for the airport which is only a 10 - 15 minute max drive away. There is however absolutely no noise whatsoever from aircraft to spoil the total peace and quite as you sit out on the many chairs and sun loungers which Napoleon provides. Whilst a car is necessary, for those feeling more energetic Napoleon provides very high spec bikes for use completely free, enough for all the family. We have been going to Kardamena for about 30 years having family on the island and we would most certainly book this property again for a stay. We just loved it. Well done Napoleon, we will be back! John, Julia and Georgina Buckley, from UK, staying 3 - 10 July 2018.
