We stayed for two weeks. Everything was great from the moment we booked. Smooth and quick communication with Edwin, the owner. He was able to answer questions regarding our travel etc. This made it clear to us it would be a good experience all round! Ines, the lovely lady that looks after the villa was also in touch beforehand to check our arrival time & bed requirements. Another good sign!
We were a group of 7. Two 14 yrs olds, two 18 yrs old, and three grown ups. This villa gave us all room to spread out! The bedrooms were a good size, the living area inside was really not used that much but was also spacious. Bathrooms were fantastic. We loved the shaded outdoor space. So much room and seating available. Lots of different seating areas outside, everyone could find their own space. The pool was perfect!
Inside the villa everything had been thought of. We made good use of the music speaker! Ample towels etc., glasses and crockery also in good supply.
This is by far the best decorated and most stylish villa we've ever rented!
We had a couple of issues during our stay, both were dealt with very quickly, within half an hour! One was WiFi, even on holiday we did still need this. Teenagers for social media and sadly for work for a couple of the grown ups. Once there was WiFi it worked well but the issue was all of the data had been used up before we arrived by the previous guests. Edwin was great and said to just get more on his account but I felt this was an expensive way to do it. Looking on the local providers website you should switch your tariff Edwin - you'd get a better deal!
The only other issue was the washing machine. We had great difficulty in getting it to work. It did work once but we couldn't get it to work again. I think this issue was to do with the electricity but I'm not sure what the problem was as we always had plenty of electricity! We never ran out of water - all was good!
The drive up to the villa is hair raising!! The kids loved it! As mentioned in earlier reviews don't rent a sports car! It is worth the trip up for the amazing views.
The area is beautiful. We visited lots of local beaches, some near, some far, lots of local restaurants. Rented a boat for an afternoon. We also made a trip to the Polilimnio Waterfalls and the ancient ruins at Messene. Both worth while trips. We left early and were back for afternoons round the pool.
Spent evenings in Koroni, Gialova but most in Finikounda. Lots of choice.
