About the Owner
Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a fantastic time!! The villa was superb! We adored been there. Everything was as you described and it felt like home for 10 days with sun and pool!! We would be keen to book again - Anita Gordon, June 2011.
"This is an excellent place for holidays. We had a marvellous time the house and swimming pool were just amazing! The use of the terrace and fresco dining really relaxed us a lot and the view is simply breath taking. The owner is a fantastic person who always was eager to help us out and make our stay as good as possible. The four bedrooms fully accommodated two families with children and the surrounding area with the small tavernas and nerby dining was awesome. The sea only a few miles away was very good, but we were so amazed from the pool and the garden we hardly took off from the house. We fully recommend this villa." Konstatinos, August 2010.
