''The villa was beyond expectations, clean and well equipped and perfectly suited.
Beautiful location, treasured spot relatively out of the way but with the bonus of Santa Barbara across the Road. Close to local amenities if you’re happy to cycle or by car if you want to go slightly further afield to Polis or Lachi
All of the local shops in Argaka were welcoming and friendly. Santa Barbara was fantastic, welcoming and friendly staff, good food and fantastic sunset views.
100% the cleaning service was great and George who visited to tend to the pool and garden was absolutely lovely''

''Villa Alasia is a great property if you are looking for a relaxing family sized location. It is clean and well equipped and the private pool is a just the right size for a family party.The local area of Argaka is beautiful. Because it is in a more rural location, it is ideal if you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing holiday experience. There are a few restaurants within walking distance, in particular - Santa Barbara Restaurant and Beach Bar is a very special place; excellent food, first class friendly service and a ‘million-dollar-view’ of the setting sun each night as it dips below the sea’s horizon. It’s really very special. In our view, you could probably eat here each evening and still not have everything off the menu.
Bike hire is available from Yiannis who is situated next to Santa Barbara and a trip along the coast road toward Pomos is a great way to spend a day. But make sure you take lots of water for the journey. In addition, there are a couple of mini-markets within a walking distance which sell most grocery provisions. When we first booked, our intention was to try and do the holiday without a car. But, in our view, a car is a good idea, particularly if you want to shop at a larger supermarket. the closest of which is in Polis and not within walking distance. Also, with a car - you can take a trip into Latchi which is a lovely harbour town with many good seafood restaurants.
We booked our holiday with LetsRentOnline and I can honestly say that the experience was 10/10. Steven - the manager gives an absolutely first class service and nothing is too much trouble. Book with confidence, you will get a better all round service than if you booked through one of the big companies; we will certainly be using him again. A local property manager was assigned to us on arrival - Giorgios, and again - we can honestly say that this was a first class service experience. Always on hand to provide help if needed. Thanks for a great time. All the best. Emma and Tony.''
Whilst on location: I just thought I would drop you a line to say how impressed we all are with everything. The villa is perfect and the area is great. Really good to have Giorgios on hand too. Thanks for all of your help so far. Really cannot fault it. All the best.Regards. Tony
