This property is all about its views and amazing sunsets. It's a large villa which is well equipped and in immaculate condition. It worked well for us as a family with the upstairs section.
You could easily spend your time sat round the pool and just watching the world go by but we often went into Fiskardo (10 minutes drive) and Assos (25 minutes). The Odeysssa just down the road is a fantastic restaurant - so well connected.
Nicola was very responsive and easily contactable but we did not really need to call her.
There was a lovely Greek salad in the fridge which was a nice surprise and tea and coffee so the only thing I would suggest is having some milk as well, as everyone was looking forward to a cup of tea!
I thought it was excellent value and a great villa. As well as the milk the only other tiny recommmedation is to have some washing up sponges/clothes. Great holiday.
Beautiful villa and pool in quiet location
The villa is wonderful- quite modern, well laid out and well cared for. The bedrooms are comfy with good wardrobe space, good air con and smartly decorated. The bathrooms are lovely, and the master bedroom with ensuite, office and own huge balcony is a real treat.
Kitchen is well equipped , with a good fridge freezer, dishwasher , microwave and oven.
The pool, tho not huge, was more than adequate for lounging around and a gentle swim , and with a table in the shade by the pool, we ate all our meals outside.
There's plenty of room to park, and best of all , the location on the hill means a constant breeze (so we only used aircon at night and left the multiple french windows open all day) and then the perfect view of amazing sunsets every evening made this a very special holiday.
Although quiet, the villa is a short walk from the village of Maganos with 2 well stocked , friendly supermarkets , and many restaurants. (it is also possible to stock up on a few items in the Lidl near Argostoli on the way from the airport).
Nearby Fiskado is great for a gentle walk to the Venetian Lighthouse and a wide choice of waterside restaurants. A drive to the village of Asos and a walk onto the peninsula to the ruins of the Venetian castle is good for those wanting a bit more of a workout in the heat, with lovely cafes and restaurants and a tiny beach to reward you on return. Some time in Argostoli, (park in the shady , free car park and walk across the De Bossett bridge into Argostoli )seeing the turtles with a short ferry trip to Lixouri was another easy day out.
We enjoyed Myrtos beach- amazing views from above and then a late afternoon on the beach itself- though entering the sea is quite stoney so take water shoes if you have sensitive feet- the beach itself is sandy tho.
Tho' we mostly ate out Greek, we would recommend the Thai restaurant The Lord Falcon in Fiskardo as a lovely change .
Recycling is in its infancy here- but if you look out for the BLUE rubbish skips by the side of the main roads, you can make a small difference.
My only suggestion for improvement would be to have a few more cleaning cloths /dustpan and brush/ floor brush in the house , although the midweek clean and change of towels and sheets was another wonderful touch.
Nicky was very helpful and great at communicating and directions were good. (very helpful with the photos).
A marvellous find.
Lovely island, lovely villa.
All went very smoothly and the villa had everything we needed. Nicky was very helpful.
Only drawback - the very hard beds!
We loved this villa and its location. Well equipped, spacious and comfortable. Just five minutes drive from Jerusalem beach (which has beds and umbrellas) and the Odysseas Taverna - both highly recommended. And of course the glorious Fiskardo
Best villa we have stayed in.
Great location and comfortable, well equipped villa.
The only things lacking were a pair of kitchen scissors and some poolside "glasses" etc! We didn't have any breakages but plastic by the pool always feels safer.
The cleaning - twice a week, was very thorough with new towels etc.
Good communications with Nicky, who manages the villa.
The sunset views were brilliant, but we knew they would be , having stayed nearby last year.
Best places to eat nearby were "The Old Stone House" in Antipata (walkable in 30 mins or 5 mins drive) and the tavernas at Jerusalem beach (truly excellent traditional food) and Alaties beach (cocktails and great fish/seafood specials, not forgetting the mezes).
We felt the Ionian in Maganos was poor value.
Perfect holiday home.
Loved this villa and it's situation over looking the west of the island.A perfect size for six adults.Three generous sized bedrooms one on suite and one family bathroom.Hot water on demand and a good quality hair conditioning system.Five minute walk to Magganos with its nice restaurant and well stocked shop.Five minute drive to Alaties beach with its restaurant Acqua.Ten minute drive to Agios Jerusalem beach with its loungers,parasols and restaurant (rather quirky). Beautiful Fiscarado is only a ten minute drive and has a fine selection of quality restaurants.Use the taxi number in the villa and the round trip can be done for twenty euros.We are home only one day and already I am missing it all.Most of all I miss the spectacular sunsets.thankyou Nicky for your input.
