What can i say, the views are to die for, the Villa is very spacious and relaxing. We had lots of room for a family of six. Great size pool, and just a short walk down to the beautiful Lake Kournas. There is a pair of Eagles that fly over the villa now and then and there is some binoculars to doing some eagle spotting. Kids enjoyed going on the pedalos to look for the turtles. We found lots of fish, and the food is great, and very good value for money. We got a hire car and went down to giogopolli beach which is a lovely beach and the sea is so warm the kids loved it. You can get taxis to order if you fancy a night in giogopolli but we were quite content to visit yanis restaurant half way up to the villa. Anna and yani are very freindly and always welcomed us. Also the taverner up near the villa is great and the views are beautiful looking out to see with the sunset. Definitely a great holiday with great memories.

Lovely, quiet area and the views are absolutely stunning.
The villa itself has almost everything you could need. Kev and Terri are the perfect hosts and were great company too. They told us lots of good places to visit and we had a brilliant holiday here. Our group was made up of family (ages 18-48) and I would definitely go back.
Personally, I would say that it would probably not be the best place for children as the pool areas are natural stone and can be quite sharp and the stairs are quite steep down to it. (Just my opinion) Although everything possible has been done to minimise risk. (Gates on pool, matting over a small area of the stone, warning signs etc)
I would definitely recommend a car as there is very little within walking distance and the hills are quite steep. The tarverna up the hill (Katrina's) do fabulous authentic greek food, but down the hill the restaurants are not as good (and twice the price).
There was a large bees nest in the wall by the pool...
