Wow - what an amazing holiday. The villa was really lovely with just the most amazing 180 degree views of Ithaca across the sea. We arrived at night - so to wake up to that view was breathtaking. Jenny and Stamatis greeted us on arrival and, in a very unobtrusive way, were available to us throughout the holiday. Jenny's chocolate and orange cake and mousaka are both 10/10! The villa itself was really lovely - our highlights being good quality air conditioning in all of the bedrooms; two nice shower rooms; a well equipped kitchen; a lovely pool; a wrap around spacious terrace that had nice shady areas whatever time of day it was; lots of options for outside eating (two large tables); and loads of seating and comfy sun beds. There was a great gazebo which acted as extra shade in the day - but was a great gathering place for drinks in the evening. The outside lighting was also superb (we've stayed at lots of places that just let us down at night - but this was elegant and charming). The area is a hidden gem - with Fiscardo a 10 minute drive away (taxi drivers were all consistently and reasonably priced if you don't want to drive). Fiscardo has an abundance of lovely (reasonably priced) restaurants and bars. The roads are very quiet but amenities like tavernas, restaurants and bars are commonplace. Also some of the local villages are charming and almost all will have somewhere to eat and drink. The beaches are the best we have ever seen - there really are lots of hidden coves and on many occasions we found small beaches that were empty when we arrived and only ever had a handful of people on at worst. Favourites include Foki (it has a nice taverna), Evreti (it is down a hidden woodland walk so you need to ask Jenny for directions - you won't find it otherwise); Dafnoudi (another woodland walk); Myrtos (it's famous but parking is a nightmare) etc. Snorkelling is a must and we saw loads of fish, conch, octopus, fire worms etc. I'm rambling now but this was probably our best relaxing holiday in a while. Full marks to Villa Evreti and Jenny and Stamatis. We hope to return!
Lovely villa beautiful location.
A lovely villa set in a peaceful location, excellent amenities, a great pool with wonderful views from every room. The hosts Jenny & Stamatis made us feel extremely welcome & went above and beyond to make our stay special. We can’t wait to return. Colin & Maria.
Loved our peaceful stay at Evreti.
The hosts were so helpful and charming. Jenny also made a delicious chocolate and orange cake on our arrival and would give our son fresh fruit from her garden each day.
The house was extremely peaceful and private and had stunning views of the sea and surrounding mountains and had the occasional sheperd herding their goats by the house.
We loved our stay here and recommend staying here.
Amazing peaceful location
We had a fabulous stay at the Evreti villa. The location is amazing. The villa is in a small village with no through road and is so peaceful. There are a few other villas around but privacy is good.
There are hikes that continue beyond the end of the road and the wildlife is beautiful. Fiscardo is about 10 mins in the car past beautiful Foki bay.
Jenny and Stamatis live in the apartment below and were very welcoming, made sure we had what we needed and had great advice for restaurants and days out.
Loads of outdoor seating and the canvas tent gives shade from the sun.
I'd definitely stay again - thank you!
A glorious setting and a wonderful host!
We have just returned from two magical weeks at villa Evreti. The elevated position of the villa, looking across to the island of Ithaca and beyond to Lefkada is simply stunning. Every morning opening the shutters gave you that 'wow' moment of deep contentment. There is lots of outdoor space to enjoy this view, in sun and in shade and around the pool or BBQ, which is probably where you will spend most time rather than indoors. Our host Jenny and her lovely husband Stamati were absolute treasures and in truth, really made the holiday for us. Jenny was so generous with her time, advice, information and recommendations. We received gifts of cake, mousaka, samphire and nothing was too much trouble. She was attentive without ever being intrusive. We found having such a mine of local information really invaluable. Jenny showed us how to find the gorgeous little beach below the village that we could walk to, told us local history, advised us about fishing, boat hire, eating, shopping and so many other things.
An 8 minute drive brings you to the beautiful Venetian harbour of Fiskardo, which we avoided at lunchtime when lots of ferries arrived and made it very busy, but for breakfast, dinner or a sundowner it was gorgeous. We particularly liked 'Le Passage' on the harbour front, great cocktails, charming staff and a fabulous spot for people watching. Next door was Roula's Grill which was an excellent dinner spot for meat eaters.
Inside the villa is clean and spacious with comfortable beds. The kitchen is adequately equipped for home cooking and barbecues which we enjoyed and made full use of. There is a big comfortable sofa and facility to watch dvds which is easy to use. My only very minor negative is that aspects of the bathrooms and cupboards were a bit tired in places but this is such a small negative which made no difference to our wonderful time at Evreti.
We had a fabulous holiday and have no hesitation in recommending villa Evreti very highly. Thank you so much Jenny for making our holiday so special!
Comfortable villa in a stunning location
We stayed at Villa Evreti for 10 days and had a wonderful, relaxing (lazy) time. Jenny and Stamatis, who live downstairs, were so welcoming and helpful but gave us completely privacy. The property was spotlessly clean, with three good-sized bedrooms, two bathrooms and a well-equipped kitchen, plus there were books and DVDs available for guest use. There's plenty of outside space and a great pool. The gazebo was very welcome in the heat of the day.
We also have to mention Jenny's amazing orange and chocolate cake - wow, and such a treat on arrival. Thanks for the recipe!
The villa has an enviable, peaceful location in Evreti with amazing views across the channel to Ithaca and glorious sunrises. It's an easy 7-8 minute drive into Fiscardo, which has a fantastic selection of restaurants and cafes, as well as three small supermarkets. Fascinating to watch all the yachts coming into the harbour and watch the world go by.
We visited Foki Bay a couple of times - good idea to get there early and bag a space under one of olive trees - and then leave before hottest part of the day.
We also hired a motor boat on two separate days (Regina's boat hire) and went up and down the coast stopping at the small beaches and snorkelling which was a great way to spend a day at a very reasonable price.
Highly recommended. Thank you Jenny and Stamatis.
