About Property Manager

The owners Andrew and Caroline North live in Cambridge and both have Greek connections. Andrew's father was from Kefalonia and Caroline has friends and family in the Peloponnese and Athens. They both speak Greek and love the Greek language and culture. They spend about 6 weeks at the villa every year and plan to retire there eventually.

Why Property Manager chose Argostoli

The owners chose Minies because of its location which offers everything you could possibly want. Convenience as it is close to the main town, popular resorts and the airport. Privacy and seclusion as it is just a few minutes' walk from safe, quiet beaches. The owners chose the villa because of its convenient lay out, lovely pool, gardens and outside entertaining space. It is perfect for holidays with family and friends.

Lovely beaches, superb villa

  • 5 of 5

We were spoilt for choice between the pool and the lovely local beaches. The villa was immaculately presented and very comfortable. It’s a stone’s throw from Eglina beach where there is a great beach bar with draft beer, wine, salads and sun loungers. Lovely spot for relaxing and watching the sun set.

Wonderful break in the sunshine

  • 5 of 5

What a tonic! (Escape from UK weather)

Got of the plane in early April to glorious blue skies and 19 degrees. The spring flowers were just coming out and the pool was very inviting. The villa was immaculately presented and we enjoyed having our own bathroom each. We were privileged to experience Greek Easter and we also made fabulous day trips. Holiday of a lifetime and highly recommended in Spring.

So good this is our 3rd visit

  • 5 of 5

Situated in a quiet cul de sac of similar de luxe properties. Secure front drive accommodates a couple of cars. Entrance to large open plan kitchen, lounge, diner. Double doors lead to fabulous terracing with quality sofas and steps down to large pool with ample sun loungers. Terrific logia with large dining table and chairs with vast BBQ.

4 bedrooms....Main top floor has

a new wet room, 2 further large bedrooms with another having sofas so seems to be a studio. House bathroom.

Everything is spotless. The villa is looked after by cleaner, pool attendant, gardener.

Beautiful beach with bar and sun loungers/umbrellas just 200 yards stroll down quiet lane.

15 minutes easy drive to Argostoli and major supermarkets.

Highly recommended.

Impressive accommodation in a fabuloous location

  • 5 of 5

A fabulous holiday in a luxury villa and a wonderful location. All our needs were catered for both inside and out. The accommodation was excellent with the villa clean, bright and well maintained and all bedrooms having their own bathroom and some with balconies.The facilities provided in the outside pool and eating area ensured the alfresco experience was superb. The views from the roof terrace and the balconies said it all.

Within a 3 minute walk to beautiful beaches , it was the most perfect place to relax and recharge the batteries.

A five minute car journey took us to a resort and so gave us the best of both worlds and a further ten minutes saw us in the island's capital Argostoli. Here waterside restaurants provided the most delicious of dishes and a shopping experience in a lovely pedestrianised area.

A fabulous holiday and experience which we intend to repeat!
