We visited the icon painter villas with two other couples renting 3 of the 4 villas Mike and Maria own. We had stayed at there quaint apartments in Koroni (also good being in Koroni so you do not neccasarily need a car)and Mike had been good enough to show us the villas then, so we knew they were of an excellent standard with an amazing setting and views. We were not dissapointed.
The other villa was rented by another nice family from Russia but although the villas are all built round the pool they are incredibly private whilst at the same time we could meet with our friends for a drinlk by the pool and make use of the barbecue facillities.We could also walk 10 minutes to the local beach and its great restaraunt down through the olive groves
Mike and Maria have a wealth of local knowledge directing us to some little family run village restaraunts ,very Greek and not great English speaking which makes them even more fun.And incredibly cheap the most expensive meal being 140 Euros between the six of us and we do not hold back on the eating and drinking when we are out.
Maria also cooked for us on our first and last nights Very tasty and handy if you have had a long day travelling. Mike and Maria were good company and looked after us very well. Lots of complimentary produce from their fruit trees
Great place for a group of friends or familles to spend time away together
