The two of us stayed for a week as a surprise holiday for my boyfriend's 40th birthday. When searching for a villa (across a few of the Greek islands) this one stood out and looking at the tripadvisor photos, other visitors photos all looked as picture-perfect as the professional ones on the website. It was instantly a winner!
We could not fault the villa, it had everything we needed for a relaxed home from home stay (definitely more sunshine too!).
It was clean, airy and spacious, the kitchen was very well equipped and the bed comfortable. It was something else drawing back the curtains in the bedroom to that view in the morning too. The pool is just amazing. The photos explain themselves.
Check in was great, we let Marieke and Georgios know an approximate time of arrival and they greeted us and showed us around the villa. They are absolutely lovely, so friendly and Marieke especially has a fantastic knowledge of things to do and places to visit on the island. She suggested quiet yet beautiful beaches away from the main tourist areas we could visit. Georgios makes a fantastic cocktail ( we checked a few, just to make sure it wasn't a one-off!) and he greeted us and looked after us when we visited the terrace for a drink or some food.
The grounds are beautiful, flourishing with colourful flowers and unbelievably well tended to. It was so relaxing to sit on the restaurant terrace outside the main building, surrounded by colourful plants, looking at the mountains and share a jug of wine after a day of exploring.
We got a bit carried away with our supermarket shopping as we would have liked to have eaten more in the restaurant. All the food they cook is fresh, homemade and delicious. Both being vegetarian we were still spoiled for choice and didn't manage to try everything. We both highly recommend the 'Tiganites', greek pancakes...thank us later
Our last day before leaving was my boyfriend's actual birthday, we had a delicious meal and then were treated to a special plate for dessert and a shot of raki to wash it all down with. It was the perfect end to the most special holiday and we wouldn't change a thing!
