I stayed at the beautiful "Windmill" over the May bank holiday weekend with 5 friends. It was perfect in every way. The owner ,Kostas, was really helpful and on hand to answer any questions. The house is huge and easily sleeps 10-12 people, and with 4 bathrooms we were all showered and ready to go out at the same time! I checked out a lot of places before booking, and The Windmill was by far the most beautiful and was exceptional value for money. In fact, I don't think the photos do it justice, as it exceeded all our expectations. The grounds are beautifully kept and the house itself was bright and immaculate. The location is stunning, with spectacular views of the beach and sea. The property benefits from it's own path down to a lovely tavern, which is literally a couple of minutes walk away, and from the taverna it's just a further minute or two down to the gorgeous sandy beach.
The swimming pool is kept really clean and there was plenty of space for the 10 sunloungers provided. We ate outside and there was plenty of room for us all at the table on the veranda and we used the table and benches at the side of the house when we cooked on the bbq.
We hired a car but it's not essential as there's a local supermarket, bar and restaurants all within walking distance. The property is only 10 minutes drive from the airport so it's easy and cheap to get there. Saying that, we were not disturbed at all by any planes, so I guess their route in & out is from another direction.
If you're looking to get away from it all and need to unwind, I can't think of a better place. It's peaceful and tranquil, in fact it's a little piece of paradise. Between us, we've travelled all over the world but we're hoping to book this little gem again soon as It really is going to take some beating.
Book it! You really won't be disappointed!
We had a fantastic time in Villa vali, it had everything we needed and we found the location to be quiet and relaxing. The nearby beach was our favourite (once you climb over the rocks to get to it). We visited a few others including Myrtos but found this one the most peaceful. It also gets the sun all day whereas the other beaches didnt. Make sure you get a car to explore but enjoy the local family run Greek restaurants too, theyre very well priced and had great authentic Greek food.
