“Perfect location and perfect villa”
Reviewed 30 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We have rented many villas over the years but this one really hit the spot. You do not often get both location and lovely villa in the same package. The rental boat and the villa's own jetty were the icing on the cake (and a major factor in booking this villa). We stayed here in May 2017 and our party included grandparents, parents and babies. The owners and house manager could not have been more helpful in providing various baby needs and ensuring our stay was as relaxed as possible. I would definitely recommend Villa Yalenia and we shall return!

“Amazing!!! Certainly will be returning - Better Than Expected!!”
Reviewed 20 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Im not the type to write a review, however this holiday was exceptional!!
The Villa is perfectly located, well out of the way, quiet, yet a few minutes by boat and youre in the town. The Guys running the motor boats were also very helpful and looked after us very well, bit thanks to them all.
Lillias was the most welcoming, helpful, but not intrusive at all, just perfect, there if we needed her.
I cannot recommend this place enough, It was like staying in a 5 star hotel, cleaned every other day which was a real treat and lots of unexpected little extras everywhere.
Great bedding and pillows, Luxury bathrooms, comfortable seating, (over 100 seats/Chairs in the place!!) I could go on for hours.....
Everything was so easy, with no stress what so ever - Perfect holiday!! Thanks to the whole team, see you again soon hopefully..

“Stunningly beautiful”
Reviewed 15 August 2015 for a stay in May 2015

From the moment we saw Villa Yalenia, and the boat with private jetty, we knew we had to stay. We must say we were not disappointed. From our first contact with Lilias the service was first class and seamless. The villa interior, gardens and various outside living spaces were designed to the very high standard and are exactly as shown as shown in the pictures.

Ioanna and the Margeli family made us feel very welcome and the villa was prepared and cleaned to perfection. The welcome hamper was perfect for the day of arrival and stretched to a few lunches and snacks into the week. There were also thoughtful touches such as bathroom accessories and cold beer glasses in the freezer.

The boat totally made the holiday and we used it a lot to explore the local area. It was also a fun and quick way to pick up our food shopping from Nidri and visiting restaurants in Geni and Nidri. When visiting the restaurants in Geni the staff keep an eye out for you as you approach and help you dock and disembark. The staff at Trident boats were extremely personable and helpful as they also helped with arrival at the Nidri jetty.

We would thoroughly recommend the De Blanck Champagne Bar in Nidri which opens from 11am! The owners were so friendly and the quality of the wine and “tapas” style food was incredible.

We used the boat in the evenings to visit restaurants in Geni - Elena, Gialos and the Seaside restaurant. They were all excellent and very reasonably priced for food and wine even the Seaside which is “fine dining”. The personal and friendly service in Gialos was particularly good.

Kominatos bakery was great for pastries and cakes. As was the ice cream from Kouskouvnz (not sure of the spelling so a picture of the sign has been uploaded).

So many positives it’s been hard to think of any negatives. I would say that, as there were only two of us, three housekeeping visits during the week wasn’t necessary particularly as we like to relax in the mornings. However these were mentioned in advance and, if we’d thought, I’m sure that we could have asked for fewer or later slots. For larger parties this level of support may be very helpful as this is substantial, spacious property.

Lilias was so helpful from the start and this high level of service continued into the holiday. We had such a great week and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. Thank you very much to all involved for a fantastic holiday.

“Excellent relaxation, warmest welcome, ideally situated”
Reviewed 27 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Well equipped villa with comfortable rooms and excellent swimming pool. Pier at the bottom of the garden - we rented a boat and used it every day, to visit beaches and restaurants in the vicinity. We did all our shopping by boat. A major bonus for us was the warmth of the welcome, both from the property manager, Lilias and her staff, but also from the owner, Ioanna and her family. They could not have done more to make sure we were comfortable and well looked after throughout.
