Wonderful family holiday for two weeks in unspoilt Agni and the combination of a boat and the pool and a beautifully restored home made it pretty perfect.

We were a family of 11 ranging from 14 years to 80 years and the villa and the location suited all of us. The walk to Agni bay is quite steep in places but fortunately my 80 year old father in-law is reasonably fit but could be an issue for others. The villa was absolutely beautiful even more so than we were expecting from the photos. So much space inside and out there was always a spot for everyone to relax the kids of all ages absolutely loved the hammocks and we have had to promise to get some for home. Agni Bay is such a great location Spiros (Agni Bay Boats) was extremely helpful with boat hire and the Aphrodite Supermarket team were amazing if they haven't got what you want they will do their best to get it for you. The Tavernas and snack bar in the bay provided us with a reasonable variety of places to eat and we hired Dinos water taxi to take us further afield when we wanted a change of scene. We were very fortunate to be there for almost three weeks and I could go back tomorrow. Would highly recommend this villa it is stunning!

It was absolutely lovely. There was just the right amount of contact from the agent and the people who came in to clean, clean the pool and garden were very polite and welcoming. We just loved it being a family house with all the family history around the place, everyone thought it was delightful.

Car: not necessary

Agni Bay:

In Greek Agni means un-spoilt and this describes Agni perfectly - just three Tavernas (each with their own jetty for mooring up to) and a sprinkle of local buildings. The bay is reached mainly by rented motor boats, although recently there is now a narrow road down into the bay. Each evening we offer a 'Speed Boat' taxi service, from surrounding bays to Taverna Agni. The above video shows the exciting experience.

The house is set within an olive grove and pathways lead down to Agni Bay and up to the village of Loustri where you will find the bakery for your daily loaf of fresh warm bread.
