Two teenage daughters loved the pool, shaded chill out sofa and beautiful bedrooms. The breeze was lovely at the pool so we never got too hot in the July sun. Villa had all we needed and great air conditioning. Joanne our welcome host was really helpful and the cleaner kept the place spotless. We had a fabulous holiday and only had two meals out as the bbq and kitchen were lovely to cook in. Great location close to all you need but so quiet, private with outstanding views. Amazing sunsets each night. We will definitely be back, can't recommend it highly enough. Owner also a delight to deal with. Hood family.

Was about 10mins walk to pebbly beach and a few nice Greek tavernas. We spent just over 4wks here; hired a car and visited some amazing places and ate some of the best food we have ever eaten. The Owners are very hospitable and lovely people. Truly recommend if you're looking for peace and quiet.

George was there to greet us; he was extremely helpful, making sure we knew where everything was in the Villa and also in the surrounding area. The Villa was well equipped and clean and the garden and pool area very well kept. All in all, it was a fantastic holiday. Would definitely recommend.
