Faultless with scenery.

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a week in this beautiful home with our extended family. The villa's exceeded our expectations and everything has been catered for with an attention to detail that is a credit to Tracie, Mario and the team they have around them.

Gentleman George was there to welcome us on arrival and made us feel we had known him all our lives such is his charm & character. We met Christine the second day who gave helpful & informative advice on all that the surrounding area had to offer.

Waking up to the views from our balcony, across the valley with its poppy fields below and to the hillside beyond will live for a long time in the memory.

With outstanding scenery and close to a charming harbour town it is all we wanted.

There was nothing we could fault other than to wish we could have stayed longer.

Thank you all for a wonderful week.

Fabulous, Friendly and Fun

  • 5 of 5

It's not difficult to sell Mediterranean holidays with pictures of brilliant white buildings in olive grove settings with azure seascape backgrounds and all bathed in bright sunshine! Well, on arrival at the Aloni Villas these expecations were not only fulfilled, but far exceeded! The reality was a warm welcome to one of the loveliest spots on a really special island and a helpful introduction to a spotlessly clean, luxuriously furnished and well-equipped villa, with inviting pool. From the beginning to the end of our stay in the easternmost of the two Aloni Villas we wanted for nothing. Within easy walking distance of Agia Efimia restaurants and 15-minutes' drive from Antisamos beach, it's on the best side of the island too! We've left plenty of places of interest for next time and can't wait to return. What a gem! Thank you.

Fabulous Family Villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Aloni Villas with my extended family. This is a great way to take a large family holiday and still have your own family space.The villas are right next door to each other and are identical. There is a lovely swimming pool with an outside kitchen and built in BBQ, we spent lots of time here. The villas are luxurious and have all the modern conveniences you would expect, my family and I were all very impressed and we will be booking another holiday at this wonderful villa.
