Superb location with great restaurant just down the hill in Tzortzi bay and plenty of choice around the island. Very quiet location but close enough to local amenities. Excellent pool and al fresco dining. I recommend this villa to everyone!

                                                                                                      4 of 5

The owner was helpful in every respect. I think you need a car if you are dining at the nearest village. It is a pretty hilly walk back after a big meal and very dark August onwards. The tavernas in the village are very good.
