“Great villa, great location, great host, best holidays”
Reviewed November 10, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

I can’t say enough good things about this Villa. First of all is located in an amazing location set away from the crowds in a quiet spot on the top of Agia Efimias hill with the most stunning views to the Ionian Sea. The construction has an incredible planning with a well soundproofing to keep the privacy from the other villa. Besides it is very spacious spotless clean thoughtfully furnished and beautifully decorated. On the veranda there is a hot tub with nice view and lighting for enjoying special moments. The pool was nice and was cleaning every day.Mirka and Dionisios glow with hospitality they are welcoming and kind and make it a priority to assist you in any events to ensure your holidays is relaxing and enjoyable. In summary the perfect Villa which is excellent value for money, in a perfect location ideal for couples or families looking to relax and enjoy the island. Many thanks for the hospitality and the happy times we had. We will definitely visit you again in the future!

“Beautiful view over Efimia”
Reviewed July 16, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

A warm welcome awaits you at Horizon Villa. We booked Villa II and due to flights arrived early at our accommodation early. Not a problem, Mr Alexatos greeted us warmly and allowed us to book in early, great! Straight down to the pool to cool off after our journey and enjoy the breath taking view over Efimia from the comfortable poolside furniture. We can't state enough how good the location of this villa is, up on the hill with truly astonishing scenery. Well appointed, we spent our week enjoying a voluntary 'digital detox' by the pool during the day and planning our evening meal in gorgeous Efimia. The prettiest of harbours only 1km away, with quay side restaurants offer Greek and international cuisine, even traditional music! Nestled around the busy marina are also enough supermarkets, gift shops and community businesses to give you some great window shopping opportunities. We recommend the excellent patisserie located on the quay side for bread, biscuits, pastries and ice cream, all of which you can enjoy sat looking over the marina and beach. We hired a boat from Yellow Boats in the Marina to explore the many inaccessible beaches in the nature reserve next to which Efimia is located. This was a great day amongst a week of great days. Visit Greece's most photographed beach, Myrtos just 4 miles away, but be warned, DON'T go swimming if the sea is not completely calm, the undertow is legendary and treacherous. Recommend hiring a car to give you flexibility to wander around this most friendly and welcoming of Greek islands, and here's a bonus, Mr Alexatos will even give you lift back if you want a drink or two in the evening, legend!

“Excellent new Villa. High quality. Great location. Superb service. Recommended!”

We have just stayed at Horizon Villa for two weeks; family of four. We could not have been more pleased. The villa and location exceeded all our expectations.
The views towards the sea from the villa are stunning, which you can appreciate from all levels of the villa and the pool area.
The villa owner Mirka Alexatou was waiting for us on arrival and showed us round. The villa is all brand new, but is all completely finished off (not your usual Greek half-finished job!). The quality of the design and fittings is really good, there has been a lot of thought gone into the design.
The villa has air conditioning throughout, which is really nice! There are three bathrooms, all with showers. The are also two separate kitchens, which would enable some independent space if required. There is everything you need in the villa, eg hairdryer, iron, washing machine, safe, satellite TV, etc, etc. The beds are very comfortable.
Regular cleaning of the villa with fresh towels (bath and pool) and bed linen is a real plus!
Outside there is great pool. Big enough to really enjoy yourselves and 1.5m deep. It has good steps and one end and a nice ledge all the way round, so good for the younger kids too. By the pool there are some good sun loungers and sun shades. There is also a great bbq area. The pool area is private from the neighbouring villa.
The local town is five minutes drive and is really nice, with good choice of restaurants and shops, but not too commercial or over touristy! There is a very traditional taverna just over the road from the villa which ended up our favourite place to eat, providing fantastic value - evening meal for 4 costing only £25-£30 with drinks, wine, etc.
Overall we have been very very happy with the villa, location, service and weather! Thanks to the owners! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to friends and family.
(Prior to arrival communication was great, with quick response to email. We paid our money direct and felt safe. The owner even arranged our car rental for us, which worked well and saved hassle, just collecting at the airport.)
I am not normally one to leave long positive reviews, but this place deserves it!
