My family had a great time at this villa. A clean well maintained property, nice and quiet location and a good sized pool for the four of us. The owner was very helpful and was flexible with check in and check out times. Tavernas are within walking distance and a great beach is a few minutes drive away.
Great place in quiet town
We really enjoyed our stay in Gouves!
Holiday June 2019
This is fantastic Villa as the Home Away Site says.
The pictures are accurate, although the Villa was more spacious than it looked. Every thing both inside and out was spotlessly clean and the pool was beautiful. The village is very welcoming and Spryos from the taverna with the same name was really helpful and welcoming. Loved our holiday will book again for a longer stay next time Communication with the owner was really good. Every room in the villa is well equipped, and the wardrobes are massive.
We couldn't fault this accommodation.
The villa is wonderful, exactly as described. It had everything we needed plus a few extras. We loved sitting by the pool enjoying the peace and quiet disturbed only by the local cockeral! Spectacular views across the village and toward the sea from the balconies.
The villa may benefit from air conditioning in the summer months but not needed during our stay in October.
Our only disappointment was, as we were visiting late in the season, that the old part of Gouves was "closed for the winter"; all but one of the local restaurants having shut down so we never got to see the often referred to Spyros. We did however find a plethora of other eating options in Kato Gouves, particularly Atlantis restaurant which was our favourite.
Lisa provided all the information we needed and was very supportive during our stay.
We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.
The property was very good.
The only problem we had with the property was that the pool was to deep which was a shame because we were unable to use it also don't feel it would be safe for young children. Gouves its self was very disappointing lots of derelict buildings and not a very good selection of restaurants thank goodness for Spiros in Gouves village lovely people and delicious meals.
Thank you so much for your review. However I feel I can’t agree with you about the pool being too deep. I have two daughters myself a 5 year old and a nine year old who both happily swim in the pool, the nine year old without armbands. My children have use the pool since they were one year old. Many people have rented the villa and no one has ever mentioned the pool being too deep.
Lovely, spacious and secluded
I stayed in Lisa's villa with three other girlfriends for 5 days and it was absolutely perfect. The villa was a great size for four people and we loved that it was set back, giving us a bit of privacy. I would say a hire car is probably necessary, as most things a a bit of a drive away (there is a lovely taverna nearby which is walking distance).
This is a great place for anyone looking for a chilled week away with a pool - amazing value for money too. We'll definitely be back!
