Such a wonderful stay in this villa with magnificent panoramic sea view. Fully equiped kitchen and 4 bathrooms very comfortable especially for a family. Supported with 3 levels very convenient for each of us having his own space. We had bbq at the garden enjoying the beautiful view and the fresh air!!!! the area of the swimming pool was fantastic and big. I surely recommended it to families.

“Excellent villa, but location was not as shown”
Reviewed October 2, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Aikaterini Villa is a high class destination. It has three double bedrooms (two with en-suite), plus two large lounge/dinning/kitchen areas. It also has three separate external terrace areas, as well as the pool area. It is very private with wonderful views of the sea. Although not completely separated, the lower level would suit very well for a different family or age group.
The villa was very clean, well equipped and excellently serviced by Katerina and her family, who provided us with an excellent welcome pack of food, including various local delicacies. Further lovely local deserts were also provided whenever they visited.
The only warning I would give is that the three floors are connected by two narrow, polished- wooden spiral staircases. These can be quite difficult to climb and descend. These made it particularly difficult to carry any luggage up or down (or even a breakfast tray).
However, our biggest disappointment was that the Tripadvisor map location of this villa is seriously wrong! Rather than being 150 meters above Plaka, it is actually 900 meters further up the hill road. Our phones actually registered us as being in Kambia, as we were closer to that village than Plaka. It was possible to walk to and from Plaka, we did that on four occasions, but it is much further than indicated and the uphill walk is not for the weak-hearted. (Also it is useful to take a torch for the evenings, as the roads are not lit.)
The Tripadvisor ad also suggests there is a hot tub, which is incorrect, unless they mean a bath.

The villa is very well fournished with everything you need. Bed rooms, bathrooms, kitchen, terrace, pool, WLAN everything is in excellent conditions. Twice a week it is cleaned and the owners provide a very nice and warm hospitality. When you are there you feel great.
