Luxury villa with stunning sea views

  • 5 of 5

Villa was everything and more that we had hoped it would be.

Villa located on private gated estate with 24 hour management ensuring a total sense of security.

Every single detail has clearly been thought about with meticulous care being taken in the choice of everything which is of a consistently high standard. The kitchen was brilliantly equipped - home from home - it's the first villa we have hired where we haven't had to go to a hypermarket to make purchases. It is also particularly refreshing that the beds, pillows, bed linen and towels were of a very high standard - something that is sadly usually overlooked in most cases of villa hire. Having an extra cleaning service mid-week is also a very nice touch and Barbara, the Villa Manager, and her team are to be congratulated on their high standards.

The outlook was breathtakingly beautiful. The infinity swimming pool was wonderful, directly overlooking the sea. The patio areas, bar-b-que, outdoor dining area and all the outside furnishings were of an exceptional quality. The landscaping, gardens (including a wonderful selection of herbs), the mountains as our backdrop and the steps leading directly down to the sea made this villa everything you could possibly wish for.

Plenty of choice of local restaurants but with Agios Nikolaos only 20 minutes away, you are spoilt for choice for good quality Greek food where the staff are all unbelievably welcoming. Car hire is essential. Only note of caution is that guests with small children would need to take particular care with the stairs/steps and swimming pool areas.

Owner provided excellent service and advice at all times and we couldn't recommend the villa highly enough.

Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa is situated in a very beautiful location - set in the cliffs, overlooking the sea and with far reaching views across the bay. Each room in the villa has windows looking out at this breath-taking panorama. The amenities, furnishing and equipment were of a very high standard and the seating, outdoor facilities and infinity swimming pool were excellent. Jules was a very attentive host, helping ensure we had a lovely holiday. The local restaurants she recommended were all extremely good. The staff at the complex were very kind and helpful too. We had a fantastic holiday and would highly recommend this beautiful villa.

A beautiful villa in an amazing location

  • 5 of 5

Perched high on a dramatic cliff, the view from the house is simply

stunning and along with the contemporary architecture and gardens, it must

be one of the coolest holiday homes on the market - really. It's set

within a gated, beautifully landscaped compound with the other houses of

the same architectural style, but otherwise all different. Do ask about

the best local restaurants because we ate at some truly wonderful places

(one in a village in the hills) which were memorable and great value. The

sea at the foot of the steps is great for swimming / snorkelling etc and

if you want a classic beach, the one you can see from the house to your

left is great (really calm when we were there, lovely in the evening). I

don't need to tell you about the house itself, it will all be evident in

the particulars and is as described - lovely. A perfect place for a family

or group holiday. (Melissa + Leo from Oxford, UK)

A little piece of heaven !

  • 5 of 5

My wife loved it so much she asked me to buy it. Thank God the owners politely refused....it's a little out of my budget. Rent it though and you will feel like a King. Jules laid on everything and made our stay effortless in every way, add the tranquil and secluded setting.....simply fabulous. Floating around in the pool is what i do best but if you fancy the sea it's only a few steps away.

The villa offers a calm and relaxing place to 'be' and with all the doors and windows open you can just wind away your hours bumbling about this most tastefully furnished home. We will most certainly be back, only next time with the wider family....this place has to be shared....it is too beautiful a place to keep a secret. Or does it ?

Fantastic, as described,

  • 5 of 5

Our family was so excited to have booked this villa for a 2 week holiday, it looked lovely on the details but nothing could have prepared us for the excitement on arrival, stunning! Built in a gorgeous gated estate with other properties of a similar architect, although this one in our view the best position and size, its right on the waters edge with steps down to the sea, we loved it, there is nothing not to love about it! The views are spectacular, the villa spacious, stylish, well equipped and spotlessly clean, just nothing disappointed. We loved dining outside using the the BBQ, a great social area with ample seating providing a sink, bar and fridge and plenty of shade, great in the evening too. The kitchen is great, well equipped and thought out. We spent lots of time in the wonderful infinity pool day and night swims! a lovely temperature and a good size, the pool and the terraces all light up at dusk. Table tennis, lounging around, snorkelling, we did all and nothing. We dined out a few times from recommendations in the villa, the owner also organised a dinner delivery one evening along with our own private boat trip, we pootled along the coast stopping off for a yummy lunch, was a great day and highly recommend.

You need a car, the owners organised this for us, its a 5 minute drive into Istron, the nearby village with supermarkets, bakery, tavernas and coffee bars, and a 20 minute drive to the town of Agios Nicholas, a bustling town with a harbour, great eateries, bars and beaches.

We cannot recommend this villa enough, its just incredible, our children asked us to keep this hideaway a secret from our friends, worried it will get booked out and we wont get in, their wish?? - to go every year. We will be back
