                                                                      Ayala K.

                                                                      Hey John and Christina

                                                                      We were very happy and lucky to stay at Villa Cristina. From the first moment we arrived and met Cristina, we were warmly welcomed. Christina and her husband took us to the villa and after detailed explanations drove us on a tour of the area. Their recommendations on beaches, restaurants and in general, helped us during our vacation.

                                                                      We were very excited to find a warm and ready home meal for us and the refrigerator was full of products, thank you!

                                                                      We would like to point out that the villa and the garden around it including the pool and the barbecue place offered so many pleasant corners to seat in . We enjoyed eating our meals outside.

                                                                      The villa was well equipped and ready to host us perfectly! Very clean and well maintained, even more than what we expect and saw in the pictures.

                                                                      We were 8 adults and 2 little granddaughters and everyone enjoyed the vacation so very much!

                                                                      We highly recommend the villa and we hope to come again.

                                                                      Thank you John , Christina and the friendly staff.

                                                                      Kedar family, Jerusalem

                                                                      Wonderful and so relaxing

                                                                      Cyril P.Paris

                                                                      Villa Christina is an amazing place to stay in Peloponnese.

                                                                      We were 2 families in the villa during 2 weeks (4 adults and 5 kids from 5 to 11). We did not know about Greece and even less about Peloponnese. We discovered an unbelievable region of Greece with many sites to visit, nobody on the roads and nobody on the beaches, which is incredible in August in the Mediterranean basin.

                                                                      1. Location

                                                                      The villa is ideally located walking distance from 2 nice beaches and surrounded by huge villas owned by Greek famous people (former king, boat builder, media tycoon). It means that you feel very secured!

                                                                      2. Architecture

                                                                      The villa dates back from 2004 and is very well built with top 1 materials. The garden is so nice, as well as all the interior deco. It is the villa of Christina and it makes a big difference with other villas only for rental. In short, you feel at home.

                                                                      3. Organization

                                                                      John is very responsive to any questions prior to your trip. Christina and her husband helped us to reach the villa, prepared a very nice dinner for our first evening and drove us to the relevant locations the day after. The 2 persons in charge of maintenance and cleaning are also very nice with a daily presence. It is even better than in an hotel.

                                                                      Conclusion

                                                                      We strongly recommend this region of Greece and obviously this villa. After few days, we start to realize how lucky we have been to find villa Christina.

                                                                      Wonderful stay !

                                                                      Isabelle D.France

                                                                      We are 2 families who stayed 2 weeks in this beautiful villa.

                                                                      We liked :

                                                                      The exceptional view

                                                                      The more than complete equipment of the house

                                                                      The layout of the house which offers plenty of space

                                                                      The garden very well maintained and flowery

                                                                      The kindness of our hosts always available

                                                                      No negative reviews. Everything was just perfect!

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Not-So-Secret Hide-Away

                                                                      Karen F.

                                                                      While considering a review of the extraordinary Villa Christina, I was torn between a faithful recounting of our thoroughly pleasant stay there, or an obfuscation of the truth. I had mixed feelings because, in the spirit of self-preservation (for fear of boxing ourselves out of a future booking), we wouldn’t want to encourage others to experience this magnificent retreat on Greece’s Riviera. The truth, of course, won out.

                                                                      Upon arrival, we were met by our gracious hostess who had thought of literally everything for our safe and unsurpassed week at our new home. Extras and amenities abound: a pool table, a wood-fired pizza oven, two outdoor eating areas, a pool overlooking the chapel, and so much more.

                                                                      This was truly an amazing stay in an area that offers so much: extreme easy access to a multitude of charmingly distinct islands, a town with top-notch restaurants and facilities, walking distance to several beaches in secluded coves, and day trips to historic sites as well.

                                                                      The villa itself is clean, spacious, well-attended-to, modern, and stocked with all the essentials for holiday merry-making.

                                                                      Yes, we are now scouring our calendars, deciding when the next possible date would be for our clan to sneak away again to this secluded paradise with the stunning vistas. We highly recommend that you do the same; but please, keep it to yourselves…

                                                                      Owner's Response:

Thank you so much for your feedback of your vacation with us and, we do hope you manage to break free and stay with us again! Best wishes to you and Joe for the remaining half of 2017.

                                                                      Owner's Response:
