“Perfect villa, perfect location”
Reviewed September 6, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We loved this villa - having stayed in many over the years the location, facilities, views and authentic charm of the place really made our holiday special.

Our children are 4 and 7 and the villa is safe, has its own pool which is regularly cleaned and is in a quiet location with amazing views but close enough to quiet, stunning beaches, exciting boat trips and water parks to keep everyone entertained.

Booking with Sam was really easy and she always kept me informed with useful tips about car hire etc.

I would highly recommend this villa to anyone.

“Just Perfect”

Gorgeous Villa in a stunning location away from the hustle and bustle of the busier parts of the Island.

Villa Cara is short of nothing - it suited our needs perfectly.
We needed a week of complete relaxation and rest and thats exactly what we achieved here.

Stunning views - Great sunrises and perfect location for either a busy holiday or a relaxing out of the way stay.

All parts of the Island are within easy reach should you want to explore more.

The villa itself has everything you need, its short of nothing. The pool albeit small (ish) is just perfect for a dip when it gets too hot.

There are some lovely local beaches that are nice and quiet and have the sun most of the day.

Great Tavernas just a few minutes away (especially Xigia Taverna just up the hill where you will receive a warm welcome and fantastic food)

There are no negatives regarding our stay here it really was perfect.

“Lovely quiet location with interesting beaches and good tavernas nearby”

A lovely villa in a nice location away from the hustle of Alykes. The pool, whilts small is great to keep the kids entertained after you get back from the beach.

Beaches are very quiet until about 10am, so a good time to go is first thing. Our fave was the little Xigia South beach.

Xigia South Taverna does great food, and Nico's on the right just past Makros Gialos offered greek with a twist. After all, there are only so many greek salads you can eat. In Alykes, the Paradosiako offered great dips and was very friendly, even though it's on the main road (most are). No one seems to go out to eat until about 8:30, but you can eat earlier if you have young kids etc. (Tavernas are open but quiet at 6:30pm, with most open all day).

We hired a speedboat from Valais, and this was great fun. The coastline is full of coves and caves, which you can't otherwise see. There's a huge cave by Xigia North beach, that you'd never know about otherwise. Cost was abotu E140 for a speedboat, or E100 for a 30hp boat.

All in all, a lovely relaxing time in a Villa well maintained and cared for.

Thank you for your lovely review - I am glad that you had a great time and were pleased with your choice of villa. I have translated your review into English so as to help future enquiries:
The house is beautiful, inside and out, decorated and very clean. Very nice bedrooms with plenty of closet space and great balconies. The kitchen fully equipped, nothing is missing, also washing machine, iron, ironing board, ... We had 2 great weeks in late July / early August. Wonderful sea view, a cozy and always shaded (very pleasant!), All set seating area under a "pavilion" with great taste. The pool was cleaned very often, also the house was cleaned during the 2 weeks 3 times and cleaned 1 time Beds / towels changed by Terry and Norma, a very pleasant, helpful and nice couple, open to all questions / problems. The house is a dream! Only WiFi was missing a little. Car is however urgently needed, otherwise it will be difficult even with the meals, because to get anywhere (except in a bay with snack) walking back. You can drive from there to beautiful beaches, also are many beautiful and good tavernas not far away. Very scenic. We prefer typical Greek small places to stroll with its alleyways. All in all: a great vacation in a dream home!
