Would definitely recommend this villa. It is stunning and far removed from the overcrowded tourist resorts- Despite a 2 hour delay to a late flight Peter happily stayed to welcome us in the very early hours. The arrival pack was very much appreciated and saved so much hassle the next morning especially with 3 tired and hungry children!The villa is beautiful and extremely well equipped, making the experience stress free and affording us the luxury of the mod cons. Perfect for a family holiday- the children loved the pool and the generous outside space allowed an escape for the adults. Thanks Peter and Christine.
We stayed here for a week in May, Peter was there to greet us at 11:00 pm after a slightly delayed flight and came back in the morning to check that all was ok.He is a lovely guy to deal with very helpful but unobtrusive too.
The villa is 40 minutes from the airport near the top of a gently winding hill road. In one direction is sleepy Milatos and the other way leads to Sissi, where we ate at a brilliant restaurant called The Water Mill; recommended by Peter.
The first couple of days there were a bit windy and cooler than average, so we took some trips out.. drove up to Lathissi Plateau; Malia Palace; Milatos Cave.
The rest of the week was beautiful and sunny and we were totally happy eating, drinking sleeping and swimming in the beautiful outdoor area, which is planted up beautifully and lit with fairy lights at night.
This villa was absolutely fantastic, gorgeous location and easy to find from the airport. It was very relaxing with the most beautiful views. The host was very helpful during our stay and really puts guests first. The pool was amazing! It is situated near to Milatos and Sissi, close enough to activities and attractions whilst being away from it all. Fantastic holiday!
The location is great if you don't mind staying on top of a hill. The views are amazing, however you are not within walking distance to any shops/supermarkets, beach, restaurants or bars. A car is A MUST. If you don't mind driving you'll love this place.
The facilities are extremely good, all towels (bathroom/pool & beach towels) are provided for you. Inside the villa, lovely lounge, kitchen with a downstairs toilet/shower room. There's a balcony on each side of the villa so plenty of places to sit and read your book peacefully. If you keep ALL the doors and windows open you'll get a fantastic through breeze and you won't need to use the air conditioning....
The freshwater swimming pool is an added bonus which has a lovely swim up bar area. You just have to decide who's going to be barmaid/barman!!!! :-)
The villa is in a great location, with easy access to the towns and motorways if you wanted to venture further out. It has superb panoramic views and is not overlooked.
Furthermore the outside living area is extremely spacious with plenty of areas to relax in either the sun or shade.
In addition to this the pool is a good depth with easy access via walk in steps instead of a ladder which we found much better. We all enjoyed the poolside bar, which was a lovely bonus!
Inside the villa is spacious with everything you might need including beach towels, cool box and a great fridge that filters your water, which saves you having to buy bottled water. It was just like being at home having a kitchen that has everything you could possibly need.
The decor has a homly feel with an artistic flair about it and is very comfortable.
The owner is extremely thoughtful and accommodating as she contacted us prior to our stay to ask about dietary requirements and provided us with a lovely welcome pack (free of charge) catered to our individual needs, which meant we did not have to rush to find a supermarket.
Furthermore the owner met us personally at the villa, even though we arrived late at night and left us her number incase we had any problems or had any questions. We thought this was a lovely personal touch.
We loved the villa and its location and will hopefully visit again.
