Guestbook comments from the owner

The Taylors. Lovely Villa, really liked Spartia - location & people. Snorkelling at local beach brilliant. Loved Palatinos and the castle. Will return.

Nunnerys. I think 3rd time at this villa says it all! Fabulous time again. Enjoyed exploring even more of this beautiful island. Thesmanti beach next to Spartia has been a great find.

Petersen,Wellington, New Zealand. Beautiful villa in a beautiful location - this week has been everything we wished for and more than we hoped for. A great experience.

Harrisons, Southampton, UK. Wonderful relaxing time on this lovely island. The villa speaks for itself. Take time to explore the whole island. Cannot wait to be back here again.

Abrahams, Germany. We liked it very much to stay here. It is a wonderful house with a perfect view. BBQ place was great, also the pool. We wish to stay another week.

Lovely 3 bed Villa with Pool on the edge of village with Sea and Mountain Views.
average rating of 5.0 based on 4 reviews

Lovely property and location packed full of all extra you could need. Nice welcome pack.

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of good Taverna's in the area. Olive Grove just up the hill well worth a visit. Car hire a must to see around the area. Yellow boat hire worth doing for the day to get to those secluded coves.

Stunning villa in a lovely village

  • 5 of 5

Had a fabulous holiday with our 2 small children (both under 3) and my father-in-law. Villa is incredible, spacious, well equips, clean, wonderful views, pool and BBQ area.

Village is about 10 mins walk away with a few shops, coffee shop/bar, couple of restaurants which was great to walk to in the evening. Hired a car which was fantastic to check out the island as walk to the beach was a bit steep without the car.

Loved our stay and hope to return one day. Thank you!

First Class Villa in Traditional Village

  • 5 of 5

The villa was lovely - very clean and well equipped with a small but enjoyable swimming pool and a great barbecue area. It was well situated for excursions to some wonderful beaches and places of interest, as well as being fairly near to the airport. The nearest local taverna was excellent and required several visits! The villa had great views, especially from the top balcony - just the job for pre-dinner G and T's. The owner provided us with all the instructions needed to find it and enjoy the experience - we loved it - thanks Rachel.
