About the property

A lovely family residence in the heart of Kalyves village.

One of the main features of Villa Argo is its location; a stone’s throw from the centre makes you feel part of village life, while being far enough out to still be private and peaceful.

The house is built on two floors with additional mezzanine.

The living room, kitchen, WC and one bedroom with double bed and en suite bathroom are situated on the ground floor.

Upstairs you'll find a double bedroom with king size bed, a family bathroom with walk in shower. A second bedroom with twin beds and it's off this room you'll find the mezzanine.

The mezz has an extra lounge area, with a library of books and games.

It has a bedroom area with 2 single beds and the studio couch opens out to give and extra double or single bed. The mezz has proved to be the favourite room for teenagers.

The house was designed to take advantage of its views of the famous White Mountains, which you can enjoy from the comfort of the living room and pool area! From the 1st floor sun terrace you have views of the sea and surrounding area.

The garden is a mixture of olive and fruit trees and guests are invited to pick their own apricots, plums and loquats, when in season!

The pool area is a perfect location for relaxing, but for the more energetic who enjoy walking, jogging or cycling, simply turn left out of the gate and you’re already on one of the of many beautiful trails through the countryside!

The family retain retain a small basement annex on the property and are available to assist you with your holiday needs.

The villa doesn’t have a washing machine, but a laundry service is available on request.

Villa Argo is suitable for families and couples.

Out of respect for other local residents, young singles groups looking to ‘party’ are advised to seek alternative accommodation.

Wi-Fi services are available.

Villa Argo has a no smoking policy indoors.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We rented the Villa Argo for 1 week end July 2016 and was honored by being the first guests of this beautiful home. We were 5 people (3 adults and 2 kids) and we could easily have been a few more. As stated in the description, the house is very well suited for 6 persons with its 3 bedrooms. We enjoyed the terrace, the pool and the spectacular view of both mountains and sea. Further, we couldn't have wished for better hosts than Gail and Jason who took us in and treated us as friends of the family. They offered restaurant and sightseeing tips, small talk and help where ever needed. In addition, Kalives is a nice, small and quiet village with a very nice beach and some good restaurants (everything within walking distance of the house). We therefore recommend this place in every possible way. Best Regards, Kasper & family"

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa is very comfortable, well equipped , spotlessly clean, and the pool is beautiful. It is very close to the village, and a lovely beach. Gail's attention to the guests is excellent, and I would recommend it very highly. We plan to return!

Ich kann das Haus, den Pool, den Garten, die Nähe zum Meer und in den Ort und besonders die Gastfreundlichkeit einfach nur uneingeschränkt weiter empfehlen, auch wenn ich dann Gefahr laufe, dass das Haus stets ausgebucht ist, wenn wir selbst auch mal wieder vorbei schauen möchten!
