The villa is very private and secluded. Everything else was great and the rest of the staff are very friendly and nice. Thank you so much for making our stay very comfortable and welcoming.
Outstanding week in Villas Ponti,Vassiliki
Our first issue was that we didn´t KNEW if the villa existed
Yes, we where confused since the property was shown at a wrong spot at the map…
So, we decided to take a look to see if we could find it, a couple of days before we should move in. And we did – but it wasn´t easy. No signs or arrows is showing the way from the village of Vassilikis.
It is a 8-10 minutes’ drive (from Vassilikis), the last 500 meters on a gravel road.
The house is very good (there are six different villas, and we had the first (lowest on the hillside).
Two rooms: a kitchen and a double room + a rather small bathroom. Both rooms with AC.
So the inside it´s not so spacious – but the outside...!
Private pool with plenty of space around it including both a sunbed and “sunchairs”, table and chairs, and one step up, another big area with “sunchairs” and table and chairs – a perfect breakfast place..:-)
The kitchen is not so well equipped – or as we said – there is a lack of a woman’s hand there…
No Micro, just one big kitchen-knife, and the frying pan should have retired years ago.
But we managed to cook both decent breakfasts and dinners.
One bigger cleaning per week (bed linen and towels and pool cleaning) and a daily pic-up of the trash-bags from the kitchen and toilet.
The view is just astonishing!
The bay below is full of boats, sailors and windsurfers the whole day, and a perfect view of the village as well.
We appreciated the possibility to be private – no need for swimsuits…😉�
One needs a car or a motorbike to get there – but if you have: go there..!
Now, after one week, we have a "problem": how can we ever find that kind of place with an unreal wonderful feeling of life! No noise, only some birds did make nice sounds around us! Thank you for a outstanding week!
Don´t forget mosquito repellent!
Great Expectations... not quite met
We arrived late in the evening and so did not appreciate the villas magnificent views and location until the morning; absolutely stunning. The villas, of which there are five or so, are truly in a magnificent setting and are cleverly designed to afford each almost total privacy. A note of caution is that the website photographs are a collection from all the villas so you may not get EXACTLY what you expected but the outside areas were spacious, private and relaxing.
The villa itself was more at the functional end of the scale and lacked any real charm which was disappointing, with the quality of finish, fixtures and fittings below what you would expect in this price range. The kitchen itself was described as small but fully equipped and functional but you would be hard pressed to make any meaningful meals. There were several areas which needed completing/repair.
The house is broadly as described (although we were told this was an upgrade?!) and doesn’t claim to be more than it is, it just didn’t quite live up to expectations or the image created by the expertly shot photos.
It was however very clean and George, the hard working manager, extremely helpful; especially when we locked ourselves out!
We wouldn’t want to put people off because it is an amazing setting but it didn't meet our expectations and it is a lesson in really checking the details/reviews . But it’s nothing a few Euro, screwdriver and a bit of TLC couldn’t fix. Outside 5 stars, inside 1.
This review is fake ! Mrs Megan Farrell reviewed for another villa , and not for villa PONTI in which she didn't stay. HomeAway.co.uk knew that Mrs Megan Farrell never stayed in this villa and they didn't do anything to protect future customers from a false review. I recommend HomeAway.co.uk to be more careful with fake reviews and to protect owners and future travelers from unfair and confusing reviews.
THIS HAS NOW HAPPENED TWICE AND IT'S NOT ACCEPTABLE. I WOULD ONLY ACCEPT ANY REVIEW FROM PEOPLE WHO HAD STAYED IN VILLA PONTI.
This villa is so beautiful private and quiet
The villa is stunning ,
The villa was lovely and the views over the bay were to die for. The staff was helpful at every step of the way
The villa was fresh and bright and clean on arrival and stayed that way everyday as - a well equiped small, clean kitchen
shops are a close distance from the villa.
Beautiful views, stunning location
The property is exactly as per the pictures. There are four or five villas on the hillside, all are totally secluded and private each with own pool and spectacular views over the bay of Vasiliki. A car is essential both to get to the villa and also to get around the Island to see the sights! Although we did spend much of the week just sunbathing and using the pool while looking out over the views.
George was always happy to help and ensure the Villa got a clean every morning. We will be back!
property was fine no problems
nice relaxing stay good weather nice villa good food wanted to stay longer
Villa Ponti is in a good position should you wish to explore Lefkas: the golden sands of Pondi beach are 1 km away - a good place to unwind and enjoy a day of Greek sunshine.
This simple villa sits in a fantastic location overlooking Vasilki Bay, Greece's premier sailboarding bay.
The pretty resort of Vasiliki; there are many picturesque walks here and at the beach there are some excellent watersports on offer.
In Vasiliki, there is a selection of shops, bars, restaurants and local tavernas, all nearby and easily reached by car.
