Perfect for pool-loving families
The property is an impressive building, set in the foothills surrounding the small resort of Karavomylos. It is a peaceful location, away from traffic, but close enough to local amenities such as an excellent bakery/coffee shop, mini market, and taverna with water-side tables (a must at sunset!) The accommodation is spacious, clean, and well-laid out. As a family of four, there was more than enough room to spread out and enjoy our own space.
The real attraction of the property is the pool and sun-beds area. The pool is modern, warm, clean and spacious - in fact it's the size you'd find shared with 20 or 30 other guests in other hotels or villas. The pool has a large shallow end for less confident swimmers as well as a deeper area. Around the pool are numerous beds and umbrellas, allowing us all to find our chosen sun/shade. We were in the pool every day at some stage - our youngest would have happily spent all summer in it! Next to the pool an enclosed barbecue area provides a lovely venue for a family meal, supplied by one of the many excellent butchers (meat markets) in the surrounding villages and towns. Our stay was made all the better by the support of our hosts Marina and George, who made us feel most welcome at all times. We spent a very happy week at Casa Elena and would thoroughly recommend it.
This was a perfect choice for our family holiday. Lucky to have stumbled on this in my search online. It is better in real life than in the photos. Very high standard of property from the apartment, to the pool, to the barbecue area and grounds. All very clean and well kept. Friendly and helpful owners who made sure we had everything we needed. Great location to explore the island and it’s world class beaches from. Enjoyed the snorkelling at the numerous bays and beaches minutes by foot and car from the apartment. Good choices for food around the marina in the town Sami 5 minutes by car plus a couple of places near on foot. Good supermarkets, butchers and bakery to use the brilliant outdoor barbecue kitchen area by the pool. Really enjoyed our stay. Highly recommended. Thanks to the owners Marina and George.
If you like a quiet immaculate place, this is perfect. Marina and George keep the place spotless and were so welcoming and generous. Even in the height of August Karavomylos was peaceful, with only two tavernas, but a 15 minutes walk along the beach takes you to Sami which has a really lovely vibe, especially in the evening when all yachts have moored. A car I think is essential to enjoy the beautiful island, but this is a great location in the middle of the island.
The pool was particularly a highlight as it is large and was warm and the WiFi was perfect for two teenagers.
Lovely apartment beautiful location and the owners were very friendly and helpful
Great property, not really walking distance to anywhere so a car is essential, lovely pool and facilities within the property all at a very high standard, would recommend
Idyllic accommodation away from the crowds.
Great holiday thanks to Marina and George who were fantastic, attentive and caring hosts, nothing was too much trouble. Lovely accommodation, large, well equipped, with fab air conditioning. Beautiful pool and grounds. Sami has an unspoilt side to it away from all the yachts, with good restaurants and reasonable prices. Would love to return.
Gorgeous Villa - Treated like VIP's!
Absolutely stunning villa, we couldn't believe just how gorgeous it was as we drove through the gates.
Quiet side of the island which really suited us, would recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing break, beautiful scenery and amazing accommodation.
