We enjoyed a wonderful week at Villa Chara. The villa was exactly as shown and described with great outside space, two pools, comfortable rooms and modern kitchen. Our host was incredibly helpful and responsive, answering my middle of the night question about lights immediately, delivering a giant flamingo for our teenage kids to play on and baking a delicious moussaka for us. It's a 5 minute drive to a lovely fishing village with a good choice of traditional restaurants and several beaches, ranging from peaceful to fun-filled are within 20 minutes drive. We would definitely recommend this rental
The most great thing about the Villa is Eva, the most nice ouner we met ever. She did everything to make us comfortable. And even cooked a traditional dish or us.
The location is good if you are traveling with a car, and want a quite place.
The villa is very good for friends and a large family that doesn't have a privacy need. The room in the the basement floor has a glass mat door so you can hear everything from upstairs. And to go to the bathroom you need to go up. It's not very comfortable. The bathroom need urgent renovation! The walls have mold and the filling that you must go in to the shower with slippers is not very nice.
Will not recommend to go there with children and elderly. The stairs are to dangerous and there is no safe place for baby's.
Unfortunately the pool wasn't heated as we asked and it really destroy our vacation because we coulds travel a lot because of personal reasons. The pool took 2 days to resolve the problem and 2 more days to heat.
Overall it's very cool Villa but it far from perfect. If you don't have a problem with what I wrote please go there!
We stayed with 2 kids and 6 adults. The contact with the owners is just perfect. There was someone at the villa to give us a tour. The villa is just as amazing as on the pictures. Very clean, modern with everything you need. Good restaurants close to the villa and a nice bakery to buy fresh bread in the morning. The owner even cooked us a big mousaka. Great view from the pool over the olive trees
I enjoyed a personalized service, experienced traditional specialties of the island, homemade by the sweet owner. I will always keep in my heart the homemade moussaka, lamp in the oven and I hope I will return to enjoy one of a kind hospitality.

We are currently staying at Villa Chara, having been to many villas in Europe this is the nicest one and great value for money. On arriving we were stunned with how beautiful it is and how much space there is outside for relaxing and entertaining. Not to mention the children's toys and grass area which has kept my youngest entertained. There are 2 pools one for children which is fab as we have 3 kids and all could touch the bottom which gave us peace of mind. The villa has everything You need and we didn't hire a car but we were recommended a local taxi driver Nick by the owner who has been fantastic driving me to the shops and waiting to bring us back, superb service and very reasonable price.
Eva the owner is great she cooked us a beautiful welcome meal and has been on hand for any questions we had. Highly recommend and I will be recommending to friends, Thank you for a wonderful stay.
