“Lovely holiday in a beautiful villa”

My Husband and I have just returned from a week's stay in the villa. We travelled with another couple. We are all in our late fifties.
To start with the booking process was easy and straightforward. The terms of the letting are clear and there are no hidden charges or extras. The owners, the Claytons are very nice helpful people to deal with and Suzi put up with all of my emails as we thought of things we wanted to ask.
As you arrive at the airport, don't worry if you haven't hired a car, there are plentiful taxis and they all take their turn to pick up .It is very organised. There is also a list of all the destinations at the rank so you know exactly what you have to pay before you get in. This was a concern we had before travelling but Suzi re-assured us and she was absolutely right. We did book our driver to pick us up at the end the holiday. He turned up bang on time.
The photos you see on the website reflect exactly what the villa is like. It is only three/four years old and has been thoughtfully, and very well fitted to a high standard throughout. The pool is definitely more than a plunge pool and was just lovely to slip into at any time of the day.
Don't take too many clothes, as apart from the temperature this time of year, there is a cracking and very easy to use washing machine, and the Greek sunshine is the best drier possible. You will also find a full oven and hob, fridge freezer and separate second fridge, dishwasher, iron and board, DVD's, books, a cracking outside BBQ, and, we thought the best feature of all, a very welcome and spacious open sided dining area off from the kitchen. There are sunbeds with cushioned mattresses, the pool is regularly cleaned -and looked after. There is a welcome pack in the kitchen. You get the idea.This is an excellent property.
The villa is positioned a little behind and above the village of Gennadi so the there is a wonderful breeze most of the day, and the views are lovely from just about any aspect of the villa and gardens. The villa is only five minutes or so from the village centre. The last bit of the walk is uphill but not too bad at all. Worth it for those views.
The villa is part of a small complex of villas, a couple of which haven't been bought. They are therefore un-occupied but do not let this put you off in any way. Villa Aglaia has a large corner plot and its position within the plot leaves you aware of only the views and open countryside beyond it.
The village of Gennadi is a proper small Greek Village. If you want a throbbing resort, go elsewhere. If you want to feel almost part of a real community, where people will still smile and say 'Kalimera' as they pass you, then this is for you. There are a number of Tavernas in the village - Mama's Kitchen is very good - and another couple on the beach - as you walk to wards them go the right hand Taverna -Antonis. Eugenie, the daughter of the house is great and speaks good English. The beach is another few minutes walk straight on from the village centre.
There are also a number of bars in the village all of which tumble out onto one of the main streets in the evening - they put up a small barier to stop the traffic so everyone of all ages comes out.
The local beach is shingle /pebbly but it is also well cared for and there are very neat rows of sunbeds and umbrellas for hire at 7euros per day. The two tavernas there look directly over the beach.
There's a good supermarket, pharmicists, a cracking patissierie, and veg shop in the centre of the village. You can get A WiFi connection at the beach taverna and in the village.
So our sincere thanks to the Claytons. We had a great time and will probably go back. Any questions feel free to mail me.
