Amazing!

5 of 5
Gianna Villa is an absolutely fantastic villa! Our family spent one week there and the villa has everything you need and more to make your vacation wonderful. It really felt like a home away from home. The owner Natassa was very nice and made us feel very welcome. The standard of the interiour is very high, the pool area is great and the view is magical. We can´t wait to get back!

Timeless and Atmospheric

4 of 5
Angeliki is a small, well restored cottage/farm building next to and surrounded by a working farm. The terrace is fantastic with excellent views of the white mountains, the carob tree is not only beautiful but offers dappled shade. Although it is relatively close to the village (with tavernas ans shop) and about 20 minutes from two seaside towns we felt like we're deep in the country where little has changed in years. There are wild birds, plants, crickets, frogs and cicadas, along with spectacular mountains and gorgeous sunsets. The farm has chickens, pigs and goats and sheep feeding in the olive groves. It is full of the sounds of a farm (cockerels and sheep bells) as well as wild birds and insects. We loved it and would come again in a heart beat apart from access issues. It is not the house's fault as it is a historic building but there are steps (1,2 or three) into every room and if you are arthritic it makes moving through the building a bit difficult. The bedrooms are large and comfortable but the living space is small though this is compensated for by the fantastic terrace. Maria comes into clean regularly and is really friendly as are the neighbours and the people in the taverna in the village. Great place, brilliant locality and really interesting area with historic Ancient Greek site and good beaches.
