“Idyllic peaceful retreat”
Reviewed October 30, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We stayed at the end of the season, and the Island was very quiet, but still warn enough to swim every day in the pool and in the sea. The house is comfortable and well appointed, and within very easy reach of the Fiscardo ammenities. The setting is peaceful and we felt spoilt as we had the house, pool and nearby secluded beach all to ourselves, with no nearby neighbours. The house has areas for eating/sitting indoors, outside in shade, and in full sun around the pool. Also aircon if/when it gets too warm. The island was a delight, exploring easily with a hire car, and quiet if very windy roads. Would definitely recommend this property.

“A perfect Villa in a secluded location”

Architects house is located just 10 minutes drive from Fiskado, in substantial grounds with private access, 3 mins walk, to a small bay only useable by others in small boats and to another inlet also. Ideal for snorkels of all abilities. Swimming pool is well above average size for villas with 2/4 occupants. The property itself is roomy with full facilities. The lemon tree provided us with superb fresh drinks during our stay. You cannot fail to be impressed, but please keep it our secret!

“Beautiful, well equipped villa in Stunning PEACEFUL location”

We stayed for 1week and our party consisted of 2 couples and a baby to which the villa catered for perfectly. The setting is remote (which is exactly what we were looking for) but still conveniently within a 5min drive to Fiscardo and provides stunning sunrises/sunsets as well as the amazing semi-private beach just 1min walk from the villa. The beach is ideal for snorkelling with plenty of fish to see and also watch the sunrise at around 0730 in early September. There are also plenty of tranquil beaches within a 15min drive.

The pool is excellent and we spent a lot of time eating and having drinks on the terrace which also has a BBQ. The local herd of goats strolls past most mornings which is a sight to see!
The inside of the villa is contemporary with all furnishings required and the aircon works very well. I would not hesitate to recommend this gem of a villa to others and we are already contemplating going back next year!

“Peaceful, Idyllic, relaxing . . . excellent!”

Stayed for 10 days, house really comfortable with air con, and well stocked. We watched film on laptop next to pool at night whilst watching occasional bat skimming pool to catch their tea.... really memorable! Every morning we had idyllic breakfast on veranda over looking the pool and enjoying the peace and view, and then walked the 100m to "our" beach where you can enjoy snorkelling, we had great late night tea and drinks on the beach, had whole place to ourselves, really peaceful. Pool excellent, and next bay north has couple large boats in it, and you can snorkel over couple of sunk boats. Local goats wearing bells occasionally make evenings sound like Christmas which is fun. Wifi is offered as optional extra but it is based on 3G, v slow and not worth it, better idea is go into Fiskardo any time, buy a drink, and all the bars offer free wifi. That is however the only negative, staying here was excellent and would happily go back ......

“Heavenly retreat, exclusive and so very peaceful”

The blurb says its "a gem of a house" and I confirm that wholeheartedly having just spent 10 heavenly days there. To say the house is in Evreti a tiny village 10 minutes drive from Fiscardo actually does it an injustice, it stands alone totally secluded down an old track to a now unused church standing behind it. You look out over hillsides of cypress, olive and cedar and the only disturbance you'll get is when the local herd of goats along with their tinkling bells surround the property, that happened 4 times while we were there and we totally enjoyed it. My wife loved the seclusion of the house and pool and being a keen swimmer I loved my own private beach and bay. There is a private path from the house through a wood and down a small hillside that takes you to your own bay, no one else can get there on foot and I swam from there daily at dawn and every afternoon, only once did I come across others - a party of kayakers who'd pulled in for a rest.
The swimming is sublime every morning I swam over an hour totally alone. Lastly when you are tired of peace either rent a boat and tie it up in your own bay or get in your car and head for Fiscardo replete with a dozen or so restaurants and tavernas but still charming. Did I mention you can see Odysseus's Ithaca too from the pool (a mountain) or the bay where you look out to the adjoining island, the place is life affirming and gorgeous!
