The location is both stunning and convenient, as you can be exploring little Greek villages in 10 minutes, or walking on any one of a dozen amazing beaches within a 40 minute drive. We were cared for wonderfully by Stathis, who provides his guests with maps and local information. We had every opportunity to find what was most interesting and accessible in the time we had available. We would love to go back.

The villa is in a beautiful setting with the sea glistening below and willing you in for a swim. The villa was so clean and fresh but also cool in the mid day when the sun is at its hottest. My friends absolutely loved the location and independently went for days out to tavernas locally, went swimming in the infinity pool (which was kept regularly clean and checked by the owners) and crystal clear really blue sea. Two of us loved snorkeling so spent mornings doing that. With 5 couples all independently minded we thoroughly enjoyed what the villa offered. We had hired cars in Thessaloniki so that we could see the local area which was absolutely stunning. So much so that I need to go back and see more and I have already booked the villa again for September 2017.
