This was an absolutely perfect holiday, 2 weeks of bliss! From the moment we arrived, the staff were so friendly and made sure we quickly settled in.
Our villa was great, really clean and comfortable, serviced every day and with a lovely patio area with sea views where we could eat meals or just relax - we just loved it. It's only a small site with about 8 villas/apartments set amongst gardens which are clean and tidy with lots of beautiful flowers and trees and they have made features of interesting old relics from the olive farm that was there many years ago.
We loved the walk to the local beach, tavernas & shop, a gorgeous 10 minute stroll past lemon and orange trees and you can catch the local bus here too.
The villas are up a hillside, and this gives great views from the pool and taverna area across to Kefalonia - this is where breakfast and evening meals are served and it was a joy to sit here and soak in the surroundings. Its quiet through the day, you can swim in the lovely clean pool, or just relax, enjoy the view and totally switch off.
We absolutely loved the breakfast, Alexi is wonderful, making her own jams and marmalades from the local fruit, her pancakes are to die for, and there was also cereal, cake, a choice of cooked foods, fresh fruit, fresh bread, yoghurt, cold meats, cheese and more - a fantastic start to the day and amazingly included in the price! We also ate many evening meals here and were never disappointed.
Alexi and Pedros go out of their way to please everyone, they are such lovely people and their staff are great. OK not everyone spoke perfect English, but at least they try, and compared to our Greek (which is almost none existent) we couldn't complain - we always managed to be understood. Michela and Dionisia were so helpful and usually available through the day, and the lovely Karisa (who my husband wants to adopt as his second daughter) was always there in the evenings, so any queries could be explained to them.
We really cant praise everyone enough. If you want a quiet, away from it all experience of Greece and the Greek culture then you can't go wrong. Having said that the villas are within a 15 minute drive of the capital and the island has plenty of choice for anybody wanting more excitement, shopping or entertainment. However, we were happy with the villa and our local area, it was all we had hoped for and more, we cant wait to go back!
