“Lovely secluded cottage”
Reviewed 5 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Villa Kazantzakis is a wonderful, fantastically equipped and well-presented cottage, with many personal touches, situated along a quiet lane amongst the olive groves. The aircon in the main room is superb, especially with outside temperatures in the high 30's! This being Greece, there are a few visiting cats and the occasional dog so you do need to appreciate animals, but most are very friendly and docile.

This was our fourth visit to Stoupa/Kalogria and it remains very much a favourite part of Greece. We were really sorry to have to leave this little home from home

“Delightful Secluded House with Lovely Garden”
Reviewed 25 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015
4
people found this review helpful

This simple but delightful house is situated in a lovely quiet and peaceful area in an olive grove with a view of the sea and superb sunsets through the trees. The beautiful Kalogria beach and supermarkets are a short walk away and a further short walk brings you into Stoupa and its pretty bay. Everything in the house functioned very well and had a homely feel to it. There were plenty of reading books and maps to look at. The owner could be contacted easily by email and was always very helpful. Probably not suited to people who aren't keen on animals as we were visited each day by various cats and a dog, all very hungary but well behaved once fed! All in all a lovely place to stay for a peaceful holiday and would thoroughly recommend.

Thank you so much for your review. It was a pleasure to meet you at the office the evening after you arrived.

I love my house and will be spending your rent on making it even better:) It is true - I have just ordered €500+ of stuff to be delivered before my next guests.

I hope you will come back again!

Tim.

Lovely hideaway in olive grove.Convenient to beaches and shops. Only problem is if you do not like animals then this wont suit you as there are 4 cats, 4 kittens and a dog! But, enjoyed it so much that we only ate out 5 times.
