“Amazing place and generous hosts”
Reviewed 7 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

If you want a real luxury spacious villa in an unspoilt area that is nearby to different beaches and local tavernas, fancy a bit of biking and are going as several families or extended family, then this place is for you. It's only 10 minutes from Lixouri.
Sometimes when you get to your holiday place, you realise they have used a wide angle lens and the place is actually quite small but actually the photos don't do the villa justice. It's huge and beautifully appointed and each bedroom has its own bathroom and the kitchen/dining/lounge area is bigger than I expected.
Katerina, the hostess is definitely very welcoming and we had a fully stocked fridge on arrival and a lovely meal waiting for us. Our rental cars were delivered direct to the villa.
It's was my Mum's 80th birthday celebrations so with grand-children and children, we needed somewhere spacious with lots to do. There's a gorgeous pool with views over the Med, lots of patio space, pool table, gym, table tennis table and lovely grounds, as well as a private beach. Kat also helped sort out diving, para-gliding, and horse riding and helped us book a sailing boat for the main birthday day and found us a chef who cooked some delicious Greek dishes on the evening. We used most of the facilities but didn't get round to using the kayaks.
We will definitely be coming back at some point in the future as we had such a relaxing time and felt totally pampered by Kat, George and Lula..fresh tomatoes and water melons from the garden every day. Great BBQ. Thank you all for giving Mum so many lovely memories with the family for her birthday festival!

“The best villa in Greece ”
Reviewed 30 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We came to this villa for the second year as we loved it so much the year before. The most important thing to mention was that the owner Katerina was very welcoming and helpful and was kind as well. Her mother would bring us fresh eggs and other fresh produce she was growing every morning. Kosta and her interns were also very helpful and nice.

The villa itself was very luxurious with beautiful big bedrooms, and bathrooms and toilets in each room. The swimming pool is also very clever as it uses sea water (with little chlorine) instead of completely chlorinated water which is much better in my opinion.

The sea is also a 1 minute walk away and the sea is only used by us as it is private and only for the use of the guests at the Vila. There were also many other different activities to do such as biking, canoeing, pool table, board games and many more.

But for us the most refreshing aspect of the villa was how amazing the people were there and especially Katerina who showed and admirable love for her place and for all her animals there and took great pride and care for everything including the animals. Thank you Katerina for a lovely holiday for the second time.

“Just absolutely fantastic!!!!”
Reviewed 12 May 2016 for a stay in October 2015

When we arrived, we couldn't believe our eyes.... It was like the brochure but even better! The villa is brilliant, spacy and well designed. Peaceful and quiet so perfect for relaxing but also very close to Lixouri. The animals around the villa made our stay even better, we love them very much.

Kostis, Katerina and mama Loula are a true delight. Friendly, helpfull and they will do whatever they can to make your stay as pleasent as possible.

You can stay al the farm and just relax (and enjoy the most magnificent sunsets!!!) but if you want to be a little more active, there's more than enough to do and see. We took the mountainbikes to the lighthouse and it was awesome! We also enjoyed horsebackriding and loved each and every minute of it....

Thanks to Kostis, Katerina and Loula for making our stay unique. We will be back again!!!

Stayed here with my family and husband's family. Villa was immaculate and finished to a very high standard. Hospitality we received from Katerina, Kostas and mama loula was unbelievable - we were spoilt with food gifts throughout the week! We really enjoyed their company and were so thankful of their help when our suitcases didnt arrive at the airport. We would have been lost without them. Cannot say enough about this place - we will be coming back and will recommend to everyone. Only comment i have is that if you really don't like cats, this place may not be for you. Luckily we love animals so not a problem for us!
