“Villa Nickelly - the perfect holiday home”

We have just returned from a 10 days vacation at the Villa Nickelly and we can only say wonderful things about this house and his owner, George.
The villa is situated a bit up on a hill which allows it a magnificent view. I must say that I had my doubts before arrival thinking that we are going to the seaside and we'll have a mountain view. But the view is absolutely breathtaking and we couldn't get enough of it while staying there. It can successfully compete to any sea view. We enjoyed the view staying late at the table outside where there was so much peace and quiet interrupted only by the sounds of the crickets.
The garden is beautifully designed and perfectly arranged to the smallest detail, even more beatiful than in the pictures, the grass is green and remains green the whole summer as I understood from George and the flowers smell wonderful.
The interior is spacious, especially the living room, modern and spotless, the kitchen is well-equiped, we had everything we needed when we prepared dinner a couple of times. There is space enough for everybody to have dinner inside as well as outside. The villa can accommodate up to 10 people, we were 8, 2 families with 2 children each and there was more than enough space and comfort for all of us.
The highlight of the villa is the pool, which is amazing, the kids enjoyed it every afternoon as we came back from the beach. Actually we had to come earlier from the beach each day so that they could have enough time for the pool. George takes care of it daily, which is why it is perfectly clean.
George is the nicest owner we have encoutered so far, always willing to help and make our holiday as pleasant as possible. He was willing to take his time to help us with everything we needed. He even accompanied us to the doctor, which we appreciated a lot.
All in all we had a wonderful stay at villa Nickelly, we would come back anytime and we would recommend it to anyone, especially to families with children.

“Oh my goodness, WOW!”
Reviewed August 23, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This was a last minute and desperately needed break for us and we couldn't have asked for more. It was perfect! The views of the mountains across were beautiful, the villa was spotless, modern, and well-equipped, and the pool was fabulous. I expected beforehand that the advertisement photos had been taken in spring before the sun had taken its toll on the garden, but no - there were flowers everywhere in the garden and the grass was as green as green! This is because the owner tends the garden and cleans the pool every day. A car is needed as it's 2km to the supermarket and 3km to Vassiliki for the beach, ferries, watersports etc. There are two tavernas within walking distance - The Old Plane Tree is very popular and excellent, and they give you lots of food for a very reasonable price. Tavernas in Vassiliki are a bit more costly, and the service is quicker, but if you're making a night of eating out as we did, what's the rush? Kontarena is a peaceful spot with only a little traffic going through on the road down at the bottom of the hill. The crickets are the main background sound and at the weekend we heard the singing across the valley from the monastery - wonderfully atmospheric! The owners are unbelievably helpful when you need to know anything. I get the impression they know everyone in the area and therefore the best places for watersports, to eat, etc. They were so kind and friendly to us, but in no way obtrusive. Our two teenage boys loved the place and spent hours in the pool when we weren't out and about for the day. We would love to stay here again, and for longer, so that we can explore areas of the island we didn't have time for in just a week.

“We had a lovely Stay in this beautful House!”
Reviewed June 23, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We had two fantastic weeks of pure relaxation at Villa Nickelly in June 2013.
It is a wonderful, peaceful place and the pictures you can see are not just empty promises.
You will find any equipment you would like to have overall e.g. kitchen with full equipment.
The villa and the whole area (pool, garden) around is designed with loving attention to details.
The owner is very friendly. We felt most welcome and got some very good hints for sightseeing and special places…
We can recommend this villa absolutely.
