The photos do not do this villa justice. It was like being home from home with lots of personal touches. The views were breath taking. Lovely and quiet. Arrived to a home cooked meal from Mama which hit the spot. Fridge was fully stocked with enough food for at least 2/3 days. Owner contacted us to make sure we were happy with everything.
Beach and local shop nearby.
Looking for somewhere to chill out and relax would highly recommend.
Have just returned after an idyllic week at Villa Belesonis. I can not rate this property highly enough both the villa, the location and the personal touches provided by the owner and his mother. We arrived late at night following a delay but were met at the airport to ensure we found the villa. The owner then came to greet us the following day. The villa was in a perfect location in a quiet area of the island with beautiful views over the sea and coast. The villa was thoughtfully equipped with everything you might need and more. When we arrived there was a home cooked meal waiting for us and the fridge was full of food which meant we could relax from the minute we arrived rather than spending the first day seeking provisions. Spartia the local village is close by as are a couple of beaches.
I have never rented a house that has given as much attention to the comfort of those visiting. The owners mother was lovely and popped over with fresh lemons, tomatoes and damsons during our stay. Highly recommend.
I've just returned from spending 10 nights at this wonderful villa with my family (wife and 2 children) - and to be honest I wish i could go back already. The communication from the owner was first class throughout the process, and he even met us at the airport on arrival to ensure we could find his place. The villa itself was much better than I expected - the photos do not do it justice at all. The views are amazing, the location so peaceful, the gardens beautifully maintained, and the spacious accommodation clean and bright throughout.
On arrival we had a fridge stocked with essentials - actually that's not quite correct - the fridge was stocked more than you could have ever expected, including milk, juice, melon, tomatoes, cheese, ham, wine, butter - I could go on and on - and a fresh home cooked meal which my children absolutely adored. That was followed up by some further home cooked food that was kindly left for us later in our stay. The owners mother was both a great chef, but also, like the owner, a really lovely warm and kind person. My daughter wanted to bring her home with us :)
Inside the villa were everything you could possibly want. I would struggle to find a negative. Did I mention the views yet?
Outside the pool was great - and bigger than it looks. We were in that up until about 3 mins before we left to go back to the airport. There is an outdoor BBQ, and stone oven too. I cooked outside a few times, the highlight of which was after picking up some fish straight from the boat in Argostoli. Delicious.
In summary, I could not have wished for a better experience than I have just had. I did not want to leave. I plan to return next year again, and you never know I may just end up staying there for good :)
Thanks Gerasimos for everything
