Villa Emplisi

  • 4 of 5

Holidayed here as a family of four ( children aged 3 and 5), and additional grandparents for a weekend.

The pool is a good size, and very clean. Unheated though our children were in it all day from 8am every morning even in June. Plenty of shade for eating outside at most times of day. Comfortable furniture, especially the beds which also had lovely quality cotton sheets ( which were changed midweek).

Very quiet location. A few neighbouring villas which seemed occupied by a mix of Greek families and rentals to tourists). All the bedrooms are large, and the garden is well laid out.

Great sunsets. The nearest bar/restaurants are 5 min drive - Odysseus at Agia Jerusalem is right up there now in our favourite ever places for lunch. Friendly family who run the restaurant, very helpful and awesome simple food. In the other direction Acqua at Agia Atilies(?) was a great spot for an afternoon dip and sundowner drinks. Local mini markets were fine, some nice produce, and if you really wanted to endure a full 15 minute drive then Fiskardo was easy. Foki Beach worth a trip for lunch also.

House was immaculate inside and outside. Very clean. Nice to have aircon though we never used it. Mosquito nets on all the doors and windows were great too, though we didn't see that many biters around anyway.

My only cautionary note would be about some of the split levels in the garden. There are two little flights of steps in the garden which don't have a rail next to them, and also two other small steps to watch out for . Neither of our children had any problem, but oldies might need to be careful.

RIchard and Jamie at IPS were great to deal with. I didn't meet either of them but they responded promptly to any queries, and went well out of their way to help us with returning an item that we left behind.

Agia Jerusalem beach and taverna is just about within walking distance, and there isn't really anything else to do within walking distance except go for a walk ! That's fine by us, and we loved the peace and quiet. I think we'll return in a couple of years - the location nearby the great tavernas and quiet beaches, and also the cleanliness of the place and size of the pool are a winner for us.
