An amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

We have been holidaying in villas for almost longer than I can remember across the Greek islands, Portugal and Turkey. So each year we try to choose a villa which has the best points of the one last year and if possible something extra. Of course this becomes more and more difficult. Our preferences are for good space and facilities, ideally a terrace or balcony with a sea view if possible, plenty of lounging area around a pool and a BBQ area. This villa just raised the bar and has all the above in spades.

Christina is the owner and a most welcoming and helpful host. She met us at the car hire station in order to lead us back to the villa and show us around. (If we had not hired a car she would have picked us up from the airport and taken us back too!) She had a Greek desert waiting for us on the table and the fridge already had some soft drinks, beer and other supplies inside.

We arrived at the villa and opened the electric gates and drove on to the wide drive. The garden to the right is one of the largest we have ever experienced in a villa rental. Inside the villa it is furnished and equipped to a very high standard. The kitchen is crammed with glassware, cutlery and dinnerware. It is Christina’s home when not rented. It even has a lift to the first floor! Outside there are two tables and plenty of chairs on the terrace.

Back out to the garden and the BBQ/kitchen area. Out here there is a large table to seat eight under cover, further easy chairs and table and another fully equipped kitchen with a second dishwasher and fridge freezer. And yet more glassware and cutlery, tools, etc. No need to bring it backwards and forwards from the house. The BBQ is excellent.

At night the whole grounds are a picture. I have never seen so many garden lights. The pool is lit also and the lights change colour all controlled by remote. The pool has four Jacuzzi jets and at the deep end a reverse swimming feature. This is an adjustable powerful jet which enables a dedicated swimmer to ‘swim against the flow’ without actually going up and down the pool.

The town of Artemida is a few minutes away. There are a few beachside restaurants serving good food at reasonable prices. Taxi fare is almost always 5 euros each way if you want to have a drink.

In short, this is the most complete villa we have visited in the last 20 years and I would recommend anyone to try it. Thanks Christina for a wonderful experience.

Gibson & Kirtley families.

An amazing villa, beautifully decorated, comfortable and has great facility.

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 6 adults, 2 teenagers and 2 babies. We had a great week staying at the villa. Christina is an amazing host. She made us feel so welcomed and ensured our stay was enjoyable and relaxed. She greeted us from the airport on arrival to take us back to the villa, she bought us a lovely cake to welcome us, gave us fresh eggs from her chickens and freshly picked grapes and melon from her garden; she called us to ensure we were safe on our first day trip to Athens by public transport and made us lovely Greek salad and tzatziki for our bbq on the last day. She bought our two babies dollies as a leaving present. In addition to all of the above, and the most appreciated of all, was when she offered and took the trouble to take us back to the airport at 3:30am when we depart. One cannot ask for more from a host. She didn't just rent out her lovely villa, she had actually wanted us to have a lovely holiday from beginning to end. Thank you Christina and Nick.

just returned from a weeks stay at Villa Abelo, I would have no hesitation in recommending a stay here the property itself is amazing, beautifully decorated, spacious, clean and well thought out with every home comfort you can imagine.

The property's description probably doesn't do it justice with views of the sea from every one of the many terraces, beautiful gardens and a fantastic outside kitchen and pool area with shade, as a larger family group there was plenty of room for us to socialise together or not if we preferred, whilst the security of the property meant that we didn't have to worry about the safety of the children.

This villa's main asset however is its owners and hosts Christina and Nikos who not only went to every effort before our stay to think of everything we might like or need, cold beer in the fridge when we arrived and toys and games for the children. During our stay they organised everything from restaurants, taxi's, trips to the super market, massages by the pool side, horse riding on the beach and helped us navigate the metro and a visit to Athens to see the Acropolis. They were such wonderful and gracious hosts, nothing was too much trouble for them and they made the holiday extremely easy and relaxing and we can't wait to go back.

Excellent villa in great location

  • 5 of 5

The villa is superb. I have stayed in a lot of villas all over Europe in a similar price bracket and this is by far the best. The inside is spacious and luxurious. Each bedroom has its own balcony also. The kitchen was large and had all mod cons so cooking was a pleasure.

The outside is stunning - the pictures do not do it justice. It has various sitting places so at any time during the day there is a nice shady area. There is a big BBQ with a large table which is where we ate every night. Next to the BBQ is a second smaller kitchen with dishwasher, fridge and cooker. There is also an outside toilet. This worked really well for us. We kept the drinks in this fridge which is near the pool and table for meal. After the meal we loaded this dishwasher and put it on ready for the next day. It was all so convenient and well thought out.

We had a hire car. There is a big supermarket 5 minutes away. The villa is 5-10 minutes from the nearest beach and restaurants where I went snorkelling with my family. It was 10 minutes away from the beach where we went windsurfing. There is a zoo 20 minutes away which was very good and also a large mall with lots of restaurants and designer shops which my wife and daughter enjoyed. We went into Athens which was very easy. It was a 20 minute drive to the tram station where we could park on the road. It was then 1 euro each to go all the way into Athens! Coming back we had to pay another euro for the tram.

The owners of the villa were also very kind and generous. Christina met us from the airport and took our baggage back to the villa. She had bought some food for our first meal. She gave us free wine, eggs, figs which she grows on the grounds. She also helped ordering taxis for my wife and arranging an island cruise.

“Excellent Stay, Hospitality and amazing Villa”

  • 5 of 5

Christina did a great job of taking care of us while we were in Athens- Artemida. She was a great communicator before and while we stayed there, she even we showed up at the airport. She picked us up, drove us to the house which was very helpful then to travel by public transport to the location - Not advisable. My family and I really enjoy stay at this luxury villa.

The villa is very well decorated and furnished. In fact I would go as far to say that it is luxuriously decorated and furnished. You would not be complaining if it was your house put it that way. As for letting out as a holiday rental....Very good size bedrooms, with good facilities, very clean and a great balcony and a big special to the swimming pool and barbecue area. We spend most of time having our meals by the barbecue area and pool.

The sea view from the top floor and very large terrace is mesmerising! This view is also accessible from most of the bedrooms. Supermarkets are less than 10 minutes from the house and taxis are cheap, if you plan on carrying a lot of shopping bags, I would advise renting a car.

From the train station the rest of Athens is within easy reach, with Syntagma square and the Acrapolis being 30 minutes away.

The owners “Christina & husband” were particularly helpful and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. All in all, our stay was fantastic and the villa, owners and area made our holiday unforgettable. The owners are incredibly kind and delightful and I cannot recommend them enough. We will certainly be going back there again!

A wonderful place to relax / Einfach nur traumhaft

  • 5 of 5

We were eight guys from germany and had holiday without family.

We arrived on June 18th and on the first night Christina blew us away with her heart-warming welcome. We had dinner (Christina cooked – she is an amazing cook!!!) drinks and great conversations together until the early morning hours. Christina always made sure to make us feel comfortable and welcome. If we had a question or a problem she was always there to help us. Her house is such a beautiful Oasis, it´s decorated very tasteful with lot´s of attention to details. They have some Grape-Trees from which they make their own wine (very yummy) and they also have chicken – so you can have your fresh breakfast egg every morning. The BBQ and pool area is out of this world – at the pool you can spend the whole day relaxing. Only a few minutes from the house you have a supermarket and little shops, the beach, the airport, the Attiki Odos (highway) which brings you to the Center of Athens in about 30 minutes. We had an amazing time at the house and at the day of departure we really didn´t want to leave. But we will definitely come back – with our families to show them how beautiful Greece is and most importantly how friendly, hospitable, caring and loveable the greek people are!!! Thank you Christina and Nikos for making our time at your house such a special one. See you soon . . .

Wir kamen am 18.06. in Athen an und am ersten Abend überraschte uns Christina mit ihrer warmen Art uns Willkommen zu heißen. Christina veranstaltete ein sehr leckeres Abendessen für uns (sie ist eine perfekte Köchin!) wir tranken und unterhielten uns bis in die frühen Morgenstunden. Christina sorgte immer dafür, dass wir uns wohl und willkommen fühlten. Hatten wir eine Frage oder ein Problem war sie immer für uns da. Ihr Haus ist eine wunderschöne Oase. Es ist sehr geschmackvoll und mit viel Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet. Man hat sehr viel Platz und alles ist extrem sauber. Es gibt sogar die Möglichkeit Deutsches TV zu empfangen. Die beiden haben ein paar Weinreben auf ihrem Grundstück und machen daraus auch ihren eigenen Wein (sehr lecker!). Sie haben ebenfalls Hühner, somit kann man jeden Morgen sein frisches Frühstücksei genießen. Die Grill- und Poolecke ist einfach nur zum wohl fühlen. Nur ein paar Minuten vom Haus entfernt findet man einen Supermarkt, kleine Shops, das Meer und viel kleine Tavernen direkt am Strand. Wir hatten eine wirklich tolle Zeit und waren von der griechischen Gastfreundschaft begeistert!
