We have recently returned from 1 week at the villa. We had an amazing time. The welcome we received was so warm and the food, including homemade cake was fabulous, particularly as we arrived later in the day. Location is great for exploring and only 10 - 15 drive to airport. Highly recommend boat trip from Makris Gialos beach to shipwreck and blue caves. We found this the perfect length (3 hrs including time at beach and swimming) with our 3 children and the captain was excellent. Also, Keri Beach is beautiful and we hired a motor boat there to see the turtles which again would highly recommend. The villa was absolutely beautiful and had everything we needed. The children loved the pool and the different seating areas were nice within the landscapes gardens. Anna and Valantis and family are so welcoming it makes the holiday that bit more special and they are available all the time if you need anything or any advice. We will be back!
We have just returned from a weeks stay at Madini Villa and it was fabulous. We cannot fault this beautiful, private and well equipt villa in any way. We were met by Valantis and Anna who made us feel like nothing was too much trouble and were asked how often we wanted the villa cleaned and when we wanted the beds changed and towels changed. The villa is approx 15 mins from the airport and the next towns & beaches are also only 10-15 mins away. We will definitely be returning and highly recommend this villa.
Even in the off season the surrounding views were stunning, great layout and the back yard is heavenly. The owners greated us with joy and even gave us a parting gift. The swimming pool and vineyards are breathtaking, highly recommend this property to anybody visiting this island!
My self and my husband and two children ages 4 and 1 we stayed at villa madini for 7 nights we had a lovely time every thing was lovely. We had everything we needed. The property was clean it had a garden area with a pool which was also cleaned regularly. Valantis and Anna the owners were very nice and helpful people it's was a pleasure meeting them both. The location was also good as it is kind of in the middle everything was in easy reach with a car. We loved our stay at the property and would definitely consider staying there again in the future.
the villa is about 10 min drive from the airport in VANATO village, a small village adjacent to another 4 villages. the villa is new, very clean, spacious, with a beautiful large garden with a new very clean pool, in the middle of olive and vine fields, in a very quite rural area, a perfect place to relax and forget the rush and stressful urban life we have. we jogged early in the morning 4 times a week, each time we ran through different streets, surrounded by private rural traditional houses, surrounded by fruit and fig trees every where, simply like heaven!
valantis and anna the owners are warm and welcoming people, with excellent hospitality as it is typical to the rural greek people. he welcomed us with 2 home made bottles of wine, that his old father makes, and some fruits, figs and grapes from their fields, surrounding the villa. . his old mother prepared to us a local cake, one of the best i ate. valantis promised to translate the receipt and send me. in the last day the whole family, very kind people, visited us and brought us some of their olive oil and wine.
this was a perfect choice. we spent a wonderful week. we have been in all the major greek islands, we did not meet worm people like in Zakynthos all around the island. to this villa definitely we will be back. thank you valantis anna and father and mother for a wonderful week we spent in villa Madini
