Well presented villa with an amazing pool and lovely hosts
We ummed and erred about whether or not to leave a 4 or 5 star review as there were a couple of niggles but in the end settled on 5 stars as the niggles were transient things that the owners either did address or will fix for the next guests and didn't really detract from our holiday.
The villa itself was as described and shown in the photographs with a well built main house and a fourth bedroom in a separate annex. A/C was added to the second bedroom early in our stay and was powerful enough to blow across to the third, effectively providing A/C in the main living area and all bedrooms. There is some background noise from the main road (a couple of hundred metres from the property) and the occasional jet ski in the bay but it's soon forgotten and the house itself is quiet with all the windows and doors shut at night.
You will need a car. Nearby supermarkets cover the essentials and there are plenty of bakeries and restaurants in the surrounding area.
If you plan to drive into Athens itself then we had no problems doing so with the traffic and driving not being any worse than London outside rush hour, and there were car parks where they valet park your car for you. If you have children then Athens zoo is a great destination (with a very large shopping outlet next door) at around 25 minutes drive. Moorings, a few km up the road, became our favourite restaurant - great food and good wine - but despite eating at a large variety of places we didn't have a single bad meal.
The star of the show though was the pool which was beautifully maintained and a favourite of our 3 year old daughter. It is deep for young children (varies from around 1.25m to 3m at a guess) but with a rubber ring and some arm bands she was happily swimming all over the place.
Finally Stefanos and Ioanna were great hosts and only ever a phone call or email away whenever we needed anything. Would recommend a stay particularly if you want to visit Athens without staying in the city itself.
Not a luxury villa as advertised
This home is not a luxury home as advertised. There is only one AC unit in the living room and none in the bedrooms or kitchen. For the price we paid, we expected much more. The internet never worked. There was no toilet paper and no hospitality. The kitchen and sink were dirty with moldy old sponges. The property was not cleaned prior to our arrival BUT the owner DID charge us a fee TO CLEAN HIS HOUSE AGTER WE LEFT. It is listed as 4 bedrooms but 3 are in the main house and the 4th is a dark guest house w ants and spiders. We would not recommend this house because the price is too high and you don't get much besides a big pool and the honor of paying for the owner's property taxes. We spent over €3500 for 3 nights. This was the worst rental and most expensive in my years of travel in Greece. Stefano, get your act together because that was robbery.
We need our guests' opinion in order to improve our services.
Your complaint is that we have no a/c in the bedrooms. In the description we mention that we have A/C in the living room and and in the master bedroom and that in the other two bedrooms we have roof fans.
In the description we mention that the guest house is outside the main villa building.
As for the wifi, it was indeed down because of works in the area.
At the check in the house was clean.
The villa is cleaned every time we expect our guests.
During the week we have another cleaning day. Upon request we can clean it more often.
As for the complaint about the sponges, we changed them immediately.
Upon any problem occuring we provided a solution.
The villa is indeed luxurious and it is worth every penny as other guests have told us.
We will do our best to improve our services to please our upcoming guests.
The owner Stefanos and the whole team, we do our best to provide an enjoyable stay for all guests.
