Superb in every way. Katy and Vasilis couldn't have been more welcoming, with a meal on arrival and cake mid way through our holiday. They even let us use their own villa on our departure day as we had an evening flight.

The villa itself is quite simply stunning - one of the best we have stayed in, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. The drive from the airport is long, and not well signposted so do your homework about the journey beforehand.

Other than that, it was fantastic in every way.

  • 5 of 5

"The villa Emilie is a beautiful house located among the olive trees with a nice view on the sea.

The villa is well equipped and maintained. The grass is green which is a most in this area. You can evev eat the vegetables from the garden, like tomatoes or eggplants.

The owners are very thougtful and warmly welcoming. They are listening to your needs. For example, they installed a gate to restrict the access to the pool to our children.

We advise to rent a car during your stay to go to the beach or to the supermarket.

We spend two nice weeks of holidays in this place. We recommend it strongly."

Tolle Ferien für die ganze Familie

  • 5 of 5

Lage und Ausschreibung entspricht zu der Beschreibung. Die Vermieter Katy und Vasili sind super engagiert. Wir wurden mit einem gekochten Essen empfangen. (Katys Musaka schmeckt super). Kühlschrank war mit diversen Getränken und Essen bestückt, so dass wir den ersten Tag gut leben könnten. Schöner großer Pool mit Gegenstromanlage wird von Vasili jeden 2. Tag gesäubert. Katy hat das Haus während unseres 2 wöchigen Aufenthalts 2x gereinigt und die Bettwäche und die Handtücher gewechselt. Supermarkt Lidl und Strand sind Dr. 6 km vom Haus entfernt. Daher Mietwagen notwendig. Das Haus verfügt über 3 Terrassen/Balkone. Wir haben uns hier sehr wohlgefühlt und hatten einen erholsamen Urlaub.

Vielen Dank an Katy und Vasilis von Ellen, Natalie, Jennifer und Udo.

Great house and service

  • 5 of 5

Villa Emiliie is a nice spacious house with a well maintained garden. Inside and outside there are a lot of possibiĺlitys to sit. Everything was complete and very clean.

We spent a week with 6 adults and a two year old child. With the fence at the end of the terrace it was safe for the child.

The hospitality of the owners and the extra attentions made it very special.

We loved it and can recommand it.

Great place to live and feel like at home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this wonderful place almost 10 days with our two children. We had a great time spending a lot of hours in the swimming pool, regularly cleant up by the owner. Everything is conform like in the ad and all the surroundings and commodities of the house are even better than on the pictures. Katy and Vassilis offered us a nice starter pack on the arrival day which allows us to have a great breakfast the next morning, and some specialities all along the stay (moussaka, pasticio, local pastries). They gave us some pieces of advice to visit typical places around the villa and to eat in local restaurants. So in one word: great holiday in family mixed up rest in the villa and discovering the area. Hope to see you again in the next year.
