Loved it - we didn't want to come home!
Three of us have just enjoyed a fantastic week at this wonderful property. It had everything we could wish for. A fabulous pool, shops, beaches and tavernas all within walking distance, plus great boat rides and restaurants nearby! The property has a fantastic terrace and there is lots of space around the pool in the beautiful garden. Olympia cleans and provides fresh towels on a daily basis. Everyone works very hard to make sure you have an enjoyable stay. The owners also own a restaurant in Tsivili - we ate there twice in one week as the food was so good! (Also called Olive Tree!)
I'd like to say more about the owners - Diana and Lakis could not have made us more welcome.
Thank you both for your kindness and generosity. It was a pleasure to meet you.
Hope to see you soon. JF
Luxury villa with lovely pool
This is the second time we have stayed here and it was just as enjoyable as the first time. The villas are well equipped and a cleaner comes in every day. Swimming pool is a good size and whilst it is shared, we were often there on our own. There are three good restaurants/tavernas, a shop and a lovely bakers close by, so both times we have stayed we haven't had to hire a car. Taxi's have set prices (€45 from airport) and Diana, who visits the villas on a daily basis will help with any advice and arrange the taxis for you. Small beach just down the road, where you can have a lovely swim and drink at the taverna. Would definitely recommend this villa.
One of the best villas you'll ever stay in !!
If I could give more then 5 stars to a villa complex and the wonderful owners I would. The villas are set in beautiful well kept gardens with a crystal clear pool to share with the other guests. Inside the villas are spotless (and cleaned everyday too!) and well laid out, the beds are soooooo comfortable and there is a welcome pack on arrival which even includes products from the owners' farm. We couldn't have been made to feel more welcome and Diana is amazing. No request is too small - or too large - for her to help you with, and what's more she writes to guests before they leave home offering help and a delightful note awaits you on arrival too. When she is not working tirelessly to keep her guests happy she is in the restaurant in Kypseli where she and her husband create delicious food!! Make sure you visit it early in your stay ......you'll want to go back!!
One day we will be back at these villas - with family or friends...... it really is the perfect hideaway.
Wir haben unsere Flitterwochen in der Villa Mimosa verbracht, gemeinsam mit unsere beiden kleinen Söhnen (2,5 Jahre und 15 Monate) und es war einfach nur toll. Eine aussergewöhnlich schöne Anlage und eine liebevolle und warmherzige Betreuung durch Diana und Olympia. Wir haben uns runderum wohl gefühlt, es gibt wirklich gar nichts zu bemängeln. Wir würden jederzeit wiederkommen.
On arrival Diane greeted us and she had provided free range eggs, local olive oil and bread from the bakery, which I would say was above good customer service, the property was spotless and were flowers on the dining room table picked from the garden around the villa, these were replenished through out the week, another lovely touch.
The sheets were changed daily also the towels were white and extremely fluffy, the villa itself was home from home.
The local bakery was a few yards up the road, also a supermarket that stocked absolutely everything, a local butchers and a fruit stall, all the produce was fresh and from the surrounding area.
A few yards down the road was a beach and a couple of lovely taverners next to the sea with lovely views.
The pool was a good size and cleaned every evening
The Villas were beautifully maintained and a lot of thought had been put into the positioning of the villas as you could sit on your terrace and not be overlooked.
I thoroughly recommend these villas and I will be returning next year.
A little bit of paradise
We were a family group of 11 ranging in ages from 7 - 74, and hired 3 of the 4 villas in the little complex, Jasmine, Mimosa and Hibiscus. The surroundings are just perfect, set in a beautiful vi years, and just up the road us a superb bakery, useful village shop, butcher and fruit/veg shack, so we lacked nothing. We hired cars in order to explore the island, and we're delighted to find how green and beautiful it is. Porto Zoro is a beach worth seeking out for snorkelling. Try Alykeyes for self drive boat hire to explore the coast and the blue caves.
The gentle pace of life in Kypseli lends itself beautifully to simple, relaxed tourism. The predominently agricultural countryside spreads right down to the sea & tourist accommodation is sprinkled between olive & citrus groves, vineyards & farm gardens. The villas are ideally situated to enjoy all the simple pleasures that Kypseli has to offer. The beach is a 3min stroll away down a quiet, narrow road. It is mainly pebble, with some sandy parts & remains peacefully unspoilt. The sea is clean and clear & great for snorkelling. 2 of the best fish tavernas on the island can be found at the water's edge here. The local, well-stocked supermarket is 300m away at the crossroads, as is the nearest taverna. Nightlife is traditional and simple, informal & impromptu, but there's plenty of choice. There are 2 excellent fish tavernas, 2 restaurants, a beach-side garden bar and 2 grill-houses. The more touristic resorts of Tsilivi (4km) and Alykes (7km) offer more lively and varied nightlife.
Other Activities: great snorkelling at the local beach; mini-golf; bowling and laser-games 4km away in Tsilivi.
