Absolutely perfect! Wonderful property for a 'get away from it all' break in a beautiful unspoilt area of Greece. Only the two of us but would easily accommodate a larger group due a twin room and a further double room/en-suite in a separate 'tower house' style building. Description was accurate and the owners lovely to deal with. We found the property very clean, fresh and well maintained. The beds were comfy with crisp cotton linen. There was air-conditioning which we didn't use as the April nights were cool enough. We used the wood burning stove a couple of times and there was plentiful log supply. This is great property if you enjoy walking and dont want to use the car too much. You can easily walk to a quiet beach with a couple of tavernas or to the nearest fishing village for general shopping, eating and sight-seeing. The property has loads of really nice outdoor space including a roof terrace which was great for sunbathing and stargazing. Overall we had a fantastic time and wouldn't hesitate to return.

Spacious, clean with stunning views

We enjoyed a very easy and scenic 4 hour drive from Athens on clear, new roads to spend a week at spacious and tastefully decorated Sunset villas. Perched on the hillside one km above the quaint fishing village of Agios Nikolaos we had a peaceful and relaxing holiday. The views across the bay are stunning with a backdrop of towering peaks. We were surprised at the variety of restaurants and supermarkets all with 5 mins drive of the villa. It was so easy to get around. There is a steep, partially paved road to reach the villa from the coast road which we soon got used to. We crossed over with owners Gail and George who were charming and helpful hosts. We highly recommend both the Villa and surrounding area for a relaxing holiday if you enjoy beautiful scenery, clean beaches, great food and high quality accommodation.
