“Beautiful house in a fantastic location that is perfect for a family holiday.”

Our family (two adults, three children aged 16, 13 and 10) spent a week at this extremely lovely house. We could not have asked for it to have been better in any way. The house has been beautifully put together with so much care and attention to detail. The interior of the house is so comfortable, light and airy, with absolutely everything you might need during your stay. The garden is stunning with a number of different areas for sitting, eating and BBQ-ing. Best of all is the fact that the beach is just across from the garden and never too crowded. It makes the holiday so much easier not to have to plan before going to the beach or spend ages making sure you have everything you need with you. My children loved this particular beach best (good snorkelling, very calm in the morning with bigger waves in the afternoon) even though we went to others that would probably be considered more beautiful. The location is so convenient being near the airport and brilliantly placed for exploring the many many attractions of the region. And finally, I have to mention the house's wonderful owners, Chris and Sofia, who were so welcoming, friendly and generous. We all very much hope we will have the opportunity to return to Villa Sofia one day.

“Lovely villa, on beach, with beautiful garden”

We had a fantastic holiday staying this this gorgeous house. Christos and Sofia were excellent and friendly hosts, meeting us at the beginning to show us round and it was easy to get in touch with queries during our stay. The house is comfortable and spacious with lovely bedrooms and living area. The kitchen is well-appointed with lots of kitchen equipment such as dishwasher, toaster, plenty of plates and pans etc. What really stands out is the stunning garden. It is enormous, and beautifully designed with areas to eat and relax at different times of day. Christos and Sofia generously offer guests the opportunity to pick fruit and vegetables from their garden so we made meals with fresh aubergine, peppers and tomatoes and picked grapes straight from the vine! The house is less than a minute from the beach - incredible! One thing to note: the sea is calm in the morning but the waves get big in the afternoon so it's definitely good to get to the beach early. We had a wonderful, relaxing holiday and would recommend this lovely property. We didn't have a car but we could walk or cycle to Kanali village (30 minute walk or 10 minute cycle). The shops and restaurants are all good. There was also a pharmacy in the centre of the village. It would have been easier to get to sights and boat trips if we'd rented a car, but on this trip a week lazing on the beach and in the garden worked perfectly!

We have spent 2 wonderful unforgettable weeks at villa Sofia and would come back any time. The villa has a perfect position right by the sea, so we went fishing almost every evening to my son's delight. The property has a generous patio shaded by old, tall trees, an outdoor barbecue and sitting area and a back garden with fruits and vegetables. Chris and Sofia, the owners, graciously invited us to use anything we wanted from the garden, so we always had fresh cucumbers, tomatoes, zucchini, green beans, strawberries, plums. The house has a shabby chic charm and is equipped with everything one might need: dishwasher, clothes washer, cutlery and beautiful ceramic dishes, frying pans etc.
The region is extremely beautiful, only 15’ by car you can reach Ammoudia – an amazing beach with clear blue waters right near Acheron river delta. You can take a boat trip along the river in the most amazing scenery. Only 30’ by car you can reach Acheron river springs in the mountains, go horseback riding, explore the river by foot, learn about the role the river played in Greek mythology and even have a family friendly rafting experience.
5 minutes by car from the property is Ioannis tavern, recommended by the owner, we went there daily and enjoyed the most amazing fresh food from fresh fish, grilled octopus, lamb, souvlaki, tzatziki etc.
We hope we’ll have a chance to revisit some day soon.
