“Marvellous villa which gave a new meaning to a perfect vacation”
Reviewed August 25, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The beautiful, new villa was well appointed towards our arrival, everything was functioning and the housekeeping by Mr.Markos,the gentle owner, was excellant .This is a perfect villa for families w young chidren,mainly because of the fantastic pool.This is an unusually large pool and became the center of our enjoyment.The architecture of the villa is correct, the rooms are large and inviting and the surrounding, within a large olive tree grove is spellbelding. If you ask about seaview-a great vista of miles and miles of sea,the Rythmenon bay, seen from the veranda.and the sunsets...The villa is secluded and your have to have a car. Yet, the distance to nearby supermarkets and Tavernas is 5-7 minutes by car.We found excellent Tavernas on the old national raod and in nearby villages.And travelling to Rythmenon is 15-20 minutes.

Liked best: The pool, the view, the overall condition of the villa.
Liked least: The lack of clear signs from the Old National road to the villa.Also the unpaved road to the villa was somewhat less convinient.

“Magnificent”
Reviewed May 8, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Quite simply this place is outstanding. Standing on the balcony of an evening, you are treated to a breath-taking view of the sea (not simply a thin glimpse of water in the distance). Add to that the spectacular sunset over the water and the views of mountains around the back of the villa and you get an immediate sense of the amazing scenery. As for the villa itself, no expense has been spared. If the spacious and well-equipped kitchen on the main floor is for some reason insufficient for you, head down the stairs for the other fully functioning (and well-equipped) kitchen. The bedrooms are divided between the two levels - all are spacious and have acres of storage space. For those of you (like us) with young children, you will appreciated the hand-made stair gates at the top and bottom of the internal stairs, allowing you to feel absolutely comfortable in letting your little ones run around. Also worth noting is that all windows have external shutter-blinds (so no fear of being woken early by the sunshine). The entrance hall was renamed by our eldest son as "The Treasure Room" because of the lovely selection of local delicacies and treats the owners had left to welcome us – a very nice touch.
The main living area is open plan, notionally divided between two seating areas and a dining area – each with plenty of space. Moving outside, for little ones some care is needed as the balcony leads directly to the stone steps down to the garden and swimming pool - you just need to keep an eye out if you have young ones.
The garden area is surrounded by olive trees which provides a Mediterranean feel. The outdoor pool is magnificent and is a real centre piece to the outside space – we didn’t really need to use the indoor pool. There is a fenced "Little-Tykes-style" climbing-frame/slide which is a lovely touch and was well-used by our kids.
The new outdoor "kitchen" has a sink, worktop and an amazing (huge) stone BBQ which was a joy to use. Charcoal and fire-lighters were helpfully provided along with a set of BBQ tools – we frequently ate outside in the evenings.
The owners have thought of pretty much everything (small touches, like providing dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, salt, coffee, herbs in the garden etc) but on the odd occasion we needed something they actioned it immediately; nothing was too much trouble for them. Finally, take the correct (unpaved) approach road to the villa – Sat Nav takes you the less friendly way!
