Fantastic villa and location

  • 5 of 5

4 friends stayed for 1 week in Villa 3.

The villa location was as described, on the top of a cliff about 5 mins taxi drive from Skala village (€5).

It's opposite a hotel which is great if you want a meal, drink etc.

The rooms in villa are good sized. The lounge area was ok for us (4people) but may be a squeeze for more. Only a 2 seater sofa and another sort of seat and a table with 4 chairs. This wasn't a problem as we were down by the pool or on the top bedroom balcony most of the time which had the most spectacular views of the sea and coastline. Also there was a table on the patio with 6 chairs for outside dining.

The views were absolutely amazing!!!

The pool was clean and lovely and had comfy sunloungers and an umbrella but the umbrella was old and really needed replacing as difficult to put up, also one sunbeds was ripped - this wasn't a problem as we didn't need all the sun beds.

A/c in all bedrooms. Lots of hanging space in wardrobes and good drawer space. The beds were comfy and towels provided. We also appreciated the safe which we used.

The villa was very clean and the cleaner came daily.

Only thing we found strange was there was nothing left in kitchen from other guests ie salt and pepper etc, we recommend guests take a few a dishwasher and washing machine tablets so you don't have to buy a box as none were provided.

We would have like some information as there was no tourist leaflets ie map, trips, local info so we went to the hotel (Pelagos hotel) opposite for these -very friendly English owner.

The walk to nearest supermarket was a good 20 mins away which in the heat of the day as a bit far so we phoned a taxi which always were prompt and efficient with friendly drivers.

The village of Skala was quiet with lovely restaurants and food. We didn't have a bad meal!

The Old Times, Nautilus,

Mikelatos Family, old pines were our favourites. A great chill out bar was Ammos which was about half way into Skala.

The sea was amazing and clear and we used the little jetty to get access to the sea then swim to the little cove next to us - perfect!

All in all we had a fantastic stay and would thoroughly recommend Villa Brio to anyone wanting a peaceful stay and a beautiful location.

Thank you to Annita the owner who always responded quickly to all our queries.

We will be back!
