Just got back from a fantastic week at Villa Avali Family with my wife and our 6 year old son. The villa is gorgeous, spacious, well equipped and spotlessly clean. Spyros and Nikh were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish, kindly letting us stay late on our last day when our flight was delayed. I would strongly recommend bringing beach/swimming shoes, especially if you have kids, as the rocks by the sea are very sharp and would be very difficult to walk on in bare feet. The sea is crystal clear and the snorkelling was fantastic, as was jumping into the sea from the 15ft cliffs! The sea is around 10-20ft deep straight off the rocks, and the visibility is incredible. The little sandy beach 5 mins walk away is perfect if you have younger children, and the tavernas at this beach are decent (EUR40 for 2 mains, a starter, 2 beers and a coke). The barbecue is great, and we used it pretty much every night. Wi fi is ok once you figure out where the best signal is. We booked through Holiday Lettings, who we have used before and also recommend. Our stay did cost as much as the car I've been driving for the past 8 years, but it really was outstanding!

“Lovely villa and stunning location”

We had lovely family week away at Villa Avali, everything was pretty much perfect for what we wanted. It was immaculately clean, quiet, the owners were very helpful and the location was outstanding. We usually do a lot of driving sightseeing on holiday but because we had the sea literally at the end of the garden, apart from a couple of trips out we didn't feel the need to go anywhere else. The kids loved using the kayaks, and bring able to swim off the rocks into crystal clear water made the holiday for us. Loved the grounds with its big lawn and swinging seat. My only little gripe was the lack of comfortable seating in the lounge which I could imagine out of season could get bit annoying but as we were able to sit outside most evenings it wasn't a big problem. Glad we hired cars as there are no food shops within walking distance but we knew this before booking. We had one of favourite family holidays at Villa Avali and will definitely be coming back.

“Perfect location”
Reviewed 16 October 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Wanted a quality villa as near to the sea as possible, and this perfectly filled the brief. Spacious good quality accommodation, comfy beds, clean and tidy, the only thing I found uncomfortable was the sofa. If there are more than three of you, the lounge furniture is a bit sparse, but you will probably be outside most of the time. Just a few yards to the sea, and a few more to the local tavernas, which are both pretty good. Beach is safe and mostly sandy, sea is clear and warm, and simply kayaks are provided for your amusement. Spyros, the owner is delightful and most helpful, leaving us a delicious welcome pack containing his very own olive oil. We will be back!

“It was perfect for us as it was so near the sea.”
Reviewed 12 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We wanted a quiet relaxing holiday where we could swim frequently. Villa Avali provided all we could have asked for. Safe deep water swimming was available at the end of the garden and a small sandy beach with good tavernas was only a few minutes walk away. The house is secluded and comfortable. The owner was helpful and the accommodation was very clean with enough equipment for self-catering. Air conditioning in the bedrooms was necessary at night and the fan was useful in the living room as it was very hot at times.
