Extraordinary time in Margarites

  • 4 of 5

We really loved our stay in this house. Absolutely stunning house, pool and rooms. The village is charming and the little canyon in front of the villa was a great surprise. We absolutely recommend the location.

Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this gorgeous villa. All the cosy places both inside and outside along with the pool makes it the perfect place to stay. The house is clean and well equipped.

The surroundings are beautiful and the small village of Margerithe is very friendly and picturesque and has a lot to offer. In just a 10 minute walk you have a bakery, a small grocery store and tavernas with great food at a low price.

Don´t miss all the ceramics!

By car you can reach several fantastic beaches. We highly recommend the last of the four Bali beaches. Also, take your time to drive to Elafonissi, the pink beach! Both the drive with it´s breathtaking views and the beach is worth the drive.

Both the manager and the owner are very friendly and helpful.

We absolutely recommend this property.

Thank you!!

It is a very attractive property in a very nice location.

  • 4 of 5

We were 4 couples and there was plenty of room and facilities for all of us. The pool is not heated so was a little cool in May, but a great place to spend the day. We also much appreciated the outdoor oven and barbeque.

It was a pity that none of the room showers worked properly but we all got by and we all really enjoyed our stay.

Wir haben einen sehr schönen Urlaub mit Think Villa verbracht

  • 5 of 5

Es war ein sehr schöner und entspannter Urlaub. Alle Fragen und Wünsche wurden bereits im Vorfeld durch Valia (Think Villa) schnellstens beantwortet und umgesetzt und das über den gesamten Urlaub hinweg. Das ist heutzutage nicht üblich;-)

Vielen Dank für den netten und zuvorkommenden Kontakt ohne den der Urlaub bestimmt nicht so unvergesslich geworden wäre.

Vielen Dank, wir buchen gerne wieder über DICH!

Beautiful villa but with remarks to be fixed

  • 3 of 5

We had a great time in the villa and the villa is very beautiful and located in a nice little village.Nevertheless we have to say that a lot of things were broken and dirty when we arrived.Two of the toilets were broken, three chairs also, sinks did not work and door handles fell out.When we came a lot of things were not cleaned well: toilets, fridge, sandwich toaster etc. The host came on the second day and then fixed all the things we showed him but nevertheless accommodating guests has to be planned more accurately. It should not be the case that guests have to tell the host the things that are dirty, broken and not working in his house. on Friday 5 Days later when we told all our remarks they cleaned the house all over again and we felt sorry for the cleaning lady.Maybe Friday is the normal change day?You can have a great time in the house but maybe talk to the agency in adavance to check again all facilities and cleanings before you arrive then you will stay in cute, quite and beautiful house with great pool and lovely rooms.We would come again but make them a check list before we arrive.

Villa Messogea is located in the traditional village of Margarites where you can find almost everything you need. Within walking distance from the villa there is a good selection of cafes and traditional tavernas, as well as a mini market and a butcher’s shop.The picturesque settlement of Margarites is well known for its pottery, so souvenirs are a must, and the village, with its extraordinary architecture and lovely narrow winding streets, is well worth exploring.

Furthermore, Perama town which is 10 minutes away by car and you offers a variety of shops and daily amenities, such as a bakery, grocery store, butcher’s, taverns, cafes, supermarkets, ATM machines, pharmacies, gas stations and post office.

Finally Panormo, is a friendly sea side village, approximately 20 minutes away by car and well know for its sandy beaches. The two main beaches are Limanaki and Limni. Both of them are sandy with clear blue water and ideal for kids, as they are shallow and well protected from winds. The beaches are organised and equipped with sun beds, umbrellas. Water sports are also available.Even further to the East, there is a small cove with a pebbly beach, ideal for seclusion and snorkelling.
