Wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

Phivos villa is excellent. The indoor and outdoor spaces are so thoughtfully furnished. The pool is enormous!

There are so many lovely finishing touches that make this villa such a relaxing place to stay.

It is in a great location. Myrtos beach and Antisamos beach are really close and Fiskardo is less than an hour away. There are plenty of tavernas in the nearest village of Agia Efimia which also has a great bakery/ ice cream parlour .

Phivos himself is a very good host and will respond to your queries promptly.

We thoroughly recommend this villa.

Super villa, great location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many villas over the years, but Villa Phivos is definitely our favourite. It is well located for access to all parts of the island. It has a lovely quiet position set in its own spacious grounds in a valley just five minutes from the pretty village and port of Agia Effimia. Waking up in the morning to open the windows and see the beautiful views from the balconies down to the sea at Agia Effimia is a special way to start the day.

The villa itself is extremely well equipped and does not feel at all like a typical holiday rental villa. Phivos has been very thoughtful about all the things visitors might need for their stay. In fact, this the best equipped villa we have stayed in.

We loved the large swimming pool and its spacious surrounds with plenty of sunbeds. It has the sun on it from dawn to dusk. After the sun sets there is a very well equipped, comfortably furnished BBQ area where you can relax and enjoy sundowners and food!

We could say more, but suffice to say we will be booking again.

Outstanding villa with superb outside space

  • 5 of 5

Our two families (with kids aged 1, 2 and 5) enjoyed a really wonderful week staying at Villa Phivos. The villa is spacious, comfortable and terrifically well equipped, inside and out. We spent a lot of time just relaxing in and beside the beautiful pool (a nice temperature even in early June).

As others have mentioned, the villa is perfectly placed for easy trips to Myrtos and Antisamos Beaches, and the exquisitely beautiful village of Assos. Closest of all is Agia Efimia - be sure to hire a boat from Boulevard Boats to explore some of the more secluded coves nearby.

Phivos, the villa's owner, is supremely helpful and accommodating. We felt very reassured by the information he provided us in advance and the speed of his response to email. At our request, Phivos recommended a terrific chef - Rory Bond from bondviveur.com - who came and cooked us a most delicious (and reasonably priced) meal at the villa one evening. Rory also offers a grocery concierge service and can fill the cupboards and fridge with locally sourced food and drink (you chose what you want from a list he supplies in advance) ready for your arrival at the villa. Well worth considering. In particular, Rory has great contacts at local vineyards and can supply some superb wines. More info. on his website: bondviveur.com

All in all we had a perfect holiday - our only regret is that we didn't stay 2 weeks instead of 1.

Sunshine luxury retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were amazed at the quality of the furnishings and decorations , particularly the bedding. The villa is spacious and very well equipped including torches and beach umbrellas. The welcome hamper was very generous and much appreciated. The pool and barbecue area and hammock were very popular . Only drawback ...definitely need a car and the track from the road is very bumpy ! Agia Efimia is quiet and pretty and we enjoyed Amalia's taverna and Steki with live Greek folk music.

A place to be

  • 5 of 5

Once again we have absolutely loved loved our stay at villa Lito & Phivos, the place felt very much like home during our stay. We were group of 10 persons (two families) and Villa Lito and Phivos were the best choice. Two villas close to each other are surrounded by beautiful gardens and each of them has a private swimming pool.

We loved returning to the villas, is one of the most peaceful places on earth!”

The whole family had a great time. Thank you once again.”
