Very nice villa with beautiful seaview

5 of 5
We spent a wonderful holiday at Villa Aetos. Everything was nice and clean and it was a perfect location to start trips to the surrounding area. Service was excellent. Little problems were solved immediately, there was always someone available to answer questions or suggest trips or restaurants. We even got fresh eggs from the owner's hens nearly every morning. This place is highly recommendable!!

5 of 5
Evina was so welcoming, it was a home away from home. We arrived to a freshly backed cake and the villa was immaculate, the decor was beautiful and it had everything we could have asked for! Like paradise! Still thinking about what a great time we had, the pictures don’t do it justice and the views are amazing, we didn’t want to leave! Thank you so much!
