We first came across Stella 15 years ago for wine tasting and were delighted to find it was still there and still run by Collette and Lefterris. We have now enjoyed 3 wonderful holidays there and intend to return. If you wish for a pristine, modern place to stay near to supermarkets and cafes it will not be for you, but if you want something more interesting, and reasonable as well, book Stella! It is a working vineyard so there will be tools, water pipes cats and a dog around the place. Our studio was furnished with an iron bedstead and antique dressing table. The views are stunning and where else could you find a quarter of a mile of pristine beach with turquoise crystal sea for safe bathing? Long may it last!
Popped in to have a look around and possibly stay at in the future, greeted with a brusque ‘can I help you’ and then told we could just walk around ourselves and ring the bell if we wanted anything else. Studios didn’t look clean and place looked shabby (artistic?)but views outside space were lovely. Not sure I would stay as it didn’t look clean enough for me.. the other thing is the road to get there is a shocker and should be mentioned on their website as some smaller hire cars will struggle and you may damage the car. Also quite far from anything shops, restaurants etc. Lots of potential but not made the most of.
Just completed our second wonderful stay at Stella and can't wait to return. We love the undisturbed peace, beauty and relaxed artistic atmosphere at this working vineyard. Collette and Lefteris are welcoming but discrete and hardworking hosts. Oranges, apricots and good wine too! What more could you want!
We haven't actually stayed the night yet. But after getting stuck on a road not too far from the vineyard we went in to ask for help. Terry told us to wait and go to the beach whilst we waited for his wife to come home with the car. The place is stunning. The vineyard itself is beautiful and the beach was fantastic. We had been to Myrtos beach (rated number 1 on the island) that morning and I would say this beach comes very close. If you want to be away from it all in a beautiful setting this looks ideal. Thanks again to Terry for being so helpful. We hope to see you soon!
We love coming here and we will keep coming back. Stella is a very special place and the many good things people have said about it are true. Looking forward already to our return. Thank you Colette and Leftheris. Julie and Allen
