“Wonderful Holiday! Truly beautiful villa, great location, lovely hosts”
Reviewed January 16, 2017 for a stay in July 2015

We had a truly fabulous 10 days at Villa Gaia in Jul 2015 and have felt guilty about not writing review ever since. The house was spotlessly clean and extremely well-equipped and tastefully decorated in a homely style. Beds were very comfy and plenty of storage space. Shower was powerful and always plenty of hot water.

The outside terrace is perfect at any time of day for catching the sun or shade as preferred. The pergola covered with beautiful flowering climber over the dining table ensured welcome shade. Indeed there was a stunning array of flowering shrubs with encumbent butterflies around the garden. The pool was clean and in good condition as was all the garden furniture.

From the moment we arrived the owners Eleni, Kostas and son Zacharias could not have been more helpful, caring and efficient. With a lovely welcome pack on arrival including wine, raki , fresh fruit and ice creams as well as delicious local biscuits and many other treats. We were treated to Eleni's home cooked snacks later in the week as well as more local supplies. They were superb hosts recommending places to go and indeed booked us into a wonderful traditional music/dancing evening at a local restaurant/museum in a nearby village where we ended up joining a wedding party! V memorable and special.

A car is a necessity as the Villa is a short drive up the hill from the coast. The village at the bottom had good small supermarkets and a range of Tavernas/hotels. However our favourite for evening supper was less than a kilometre away in the nearest village just down the hill and turn right. We returned several times for a very reasonable array of local dishes and were treated to a variety of homecooked specialities.

We had a wonderful holiday and the Villa made a good base to explore the island. This beautiful villa and generous, thoughtful hosts contributed to a magical holiday. Thank you indeed, we would love to return one day.
