A beautiful private villa in a peaceful area with amazing views.

  • 5 of 5

The property was everything we had hoped it would be.

It was totally private - and the views from the terrace were amazing.

We spent our days in and around the private pool - just soaking up the beauty of the place!

Summer Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4, with children aged 15 and 12. Having stayed in a hotel last year and had to fight for sunbeds by 8am, we decided on a villa holiday.

Our criteria was; wifi (to keep the 12 yr old happy), pool, air conditioning and decent quality accommodation, preferably in a secluded location.

Villa Damythsi more than exceeded our expectations! Pre-holiday I liaised with the owner Kevin on several occasions with odd questions, and Kevin was always quick to respond and help, so my natural nervousness with booking direct disappeared.

The villa is ideally situated in our opinion, it's a short drive (4 mins) to the lovely local square which has a handful of well priced/great food restaurants and a couple of supermarkets, and is off the beaten track with a few villas dotted around.

When you open the curtains on that first morning the view is stunning, the mountains to your left and the sea to your right with the pool glistening in the sun - bliss!

The villa is very comfortable, all the rooms are air conditioned which is crucial with the July heat, the kitchen is well equipped and each bedroom has plenty of hanging space/drawers. The pool is just the right size and has a jacuzzi style seat at one end. It is very private and no one can really see you from neighbouring villas. There are balconies to the front and rear and it was lovely to sit on the top balcony in the evening with a glass of wine looking at the stars.

We can't wait to go back!

Great 2 weeks!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our 2 small children (0 and 2). Kevin arranged 2 baby cots (without matresses) and 1 high chair. Chris (local caretaker) did his best to arrange matresses. The result was great, the children were happy so we were happy.

What we loved:

- views to the white mountains and the sea

- high part of the swimming pool

- close to the Beach and supermarkets

- Well equiped house

- airco in all the rooms

- very good price / quality

Tip: tiles around the swimming pool can be slippery :-)

Great location for a family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Damythsi turned out to be a perfect location for our family; there were 7 of us, youngest being 17. All had a great time; the pool was lovely, the villa slept 7 comfortably & views are amazing. A great choice when eating out locally. Beaches are lovely too. A hire car is a must; the villa is an ideal base to explore further afield - routes to the south coast beaches are well worth the journey & the drive to Balos beach is a must, as long as you don't mind a rough road and a walk!

Kevin was really helpful & helped us to sort a hire car for our stay.

Absolutely Amazing View!

  • 5 of 5

Apart from the amazing view of the White Mountains which constantly changed with the weather and the time of day, this villa is very well equipped and comfortable. The listing was pretty accurate and everything listed was in the villa and more. The owner was very approachable and concerned that visitors had an enjoyable trouble free stay. I would certainly recommend this villa to others for a relaxing holiday close to some very good restaurants and not far from the beach. And if you don't like sand you can just kick back and enjoy the more than adequate pool.

Absolutely amazing

  • 5 of 5

What can I say? Walking into villa Damythsi immediately felt like a home from home, except it was cleaner than mine. It had all the facilities needed to make a holiday trouble free. Including a washing machine which meant I didn't have to come home and deal with 

dirty washing.

The views were absolutely breath taking from whichever side of the villa you looked out from. I had the "red room" which had balcony front and rear which meant 

I had the sun from the minute it came up to the 

minute it disappeared behind the mountains in the distance in Almyrida.

It was a pleasant walk into plaka with a pit stop in the very friendly totem bar half way down. If you don't hire a car I would recommend a taxi back as it's up hill. 

All in all a fantastic relaxing holiday, I was in contact with the owner of the villa and nothing was too much trouble, even down to him recommending a local takeout that would deliver to the villa. 

When can I go again? ????
