Exceeded Expectations!

Hello Muriel I thought I would drop you a line just to let you know how we all thoroughly enjoyed staying at your villa. On arrival we were so pleased; the villa is more beautiful than the pictures and so spacious! There were 12 of us and at no point did we feel on top of each other. The two kitchens worked extremely well, the younger ones had the lower ground area, which was great to give them some of their own space, it was very newly decorated and had a lovely modern kitchen and beautiful lounge area. The rest of us used the middle and upper floors where the bedrooms and main living area were traditional Greek style. The main living area and kitchen had everything we could possible need, leading out onto the wonderful terrace with fantastic views, here we at most as it was a lovely cool spot and could seat all 12 of us. Also on this terrace were comfy sofas and a chaise lounge, with gorgeous lanterns and flowering plants. Jacques and Mary were great, Jacques was most helpful getting us to and from the airport and Mary came late morning which suited the youngsters who wanted to lie in, she was very friendly and kept us nice and tidy with lovely fresh towels and bedding as often as we would like. She even collected our first meal and brought it to the villa for us, as well as organising a birthday cake for one of our party, nothing was too much trouble for them. We hired an extra Suzuki Jimny, therefore we had 3 altogether, and this was perfect to show our party how lovely the island was and to bob into town for the evening. We ate at the local restaurants, the food and service was super. We even went and collected lunch a few times, toasted sandwiches were only 2.50 euros each, fantastic pizzas and Greek salad. The pool area is much larger than I expected, there is a specious lawn, great for games and the little one to run around on, the pool itself has steps leading into it, this made it much safer for our two senior ladies to get in and out of. I have to say the water was a great temperature, cold enough to refresh you but not too cold for the little one. There was plenty of shade from two very large pool side umbrellas as well as two trees you could sit under, whilst relaxing reading a book or keep the baby cool while having his afternoon nap. Thank you Muriel and team for letting us unwind and dream a little in your lovely villa, we would love to come again next year. Love the Graham family x

BEST PLACE EVER.

5 of 5
Words can't even begin to describe how amazing this place is! The decor is chic, classic and warm. Everything was clean and functioning e.g. pool, kitchen, dryer, air conditioning. We felt we were living in the lap of luxury! Would definitely recommend but HIRE A CAR! It's not a downside, but the villa is on some hills. Very peaceful and ASTOUNDING VIEWS! Can't wait to come back :D
