A great and idyllic place on the sea!

  • 5 of 5

We, family of 4, stayed for one week in August. Simply a very nice place, of the beaten track, next to a winery. Anna, the owner, makes you really feel taken care of (she has plenty of tips for sight-seeing, great tips for restaurants - and on the top of it access to Saskia, a great tour-guide), the house is wonderful (we even got a midweek cleaning!) and the private beach at the end of the garden is really picture perfect. We enjoyed the sunset from the garden and spent hours reading in the great garden while the children were playing. It could not have been better. We had a great time and we will definitely come back.

We recently spent a thoroughly enjoyable week at the Villa Ilida. Anna is fantastic and the villa is excellent. Very well located in a secluded spot, yet easy to get to, the villa is ideal if you are looking to get away from it all. The surrounding region is beautiful with little villages scattered around, the Domaine Mercouri wine estate next door and of course, the sea! The villa feels like a home away from home and Anna is a wonderfully kind and helpful host. We'll be back!
