Being a bit tired, we went quickly through the explanation and function of the house and went to bed. When we woke up, you had to sit down a bit to understand that we landed in a small paradise. The view is astonishing, the quality of the furniture of the villa (beds, chairs, kitchen equipment) very good, the garden just beautiful and the direct access to the sea simply great. We stayed there with two families (4 adults and 4 children). The villa is on two levels which are totally independent from each other. This made it extremely comfortable especially when you have kids waking up earlier than the others. The most difficult everyday was to get out of the villa to do some cultural stuff and surroundings. The villa is close to Porto Helli where you can find all what you need (2 bakeries, supermarket and restaurants which all provide takeaway (considering the view at the villa, we enjoyed to have diner there)). At half of the week, a cleaning lady came to fix the towels, linen, garbage. This was great. On the location itself, I would say that it is perfect for families and people wanting to take a breath of calm. The house is a family house, not an investment property, thus it has been taken care with passion and love. I would definitively recommend it (so long I am able to have my slot in the calendar). With my family we will definitively go back there since it fulfils all what we are looking for (quality, services, view, calm, restaurants…). As an in-between person between the reservation and the arrival at the place we exchanged with Alex from Blue Window Holiday Homes. Very nice contact and helpful in all aspects. So in conclusion, it was a perfect villa!
