“Fantastic Villa in wonderful location”
Reviewed September 1, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

For the first time in years I can truly say that the photographs on the web sites do not do this amazing location justice. It is simply the best place we have ever stayed. If you want a relaxing quite isolated break, away from the noise and bustle of sea front locations, then this is a great choice.
The villa is situated high above the village of Ramni and is accessed by steep and winding mountain roads, so a decent car is essential, but anyone who has driven in the English Lake District or Scottish Highlands will not find the roads challenging (for me they were one of the highlights of the holiday !).
The villa is in its own fantastic grounds with a great pool area (1.75 M deep), and a wide combination of great sun spots and cool & relaxing shady balconies and verandas. There is a large children’s play area and a great BBQ. The house itself is well equipped with everything we needed, including a great kitchen, wifi and TV (kids needs a football fix from time to time) and aircon.
Being at 1500 M altitude there was always a cooling breeze to be found if we go too hot, and the 360 Degree panoramic views of the White Mountains, surrounding villages and Souda bay where to die for.
The nearest super/mini markets are 15-20 minutes away. There was a nice well stocked mini market in Agii Pantes (just before you cross the main highway on way to Vamos), and a large Inka Supermarket west end of Kalyves (Note NOT open on Sunday).
The surrounding villages have many nice Tavernas including some in Armenoi, Stilos and Almyrida. There were many other places we did not visit, but plan to next year as we will be retuning (it was that good).
The owners/hosts are a lovely family who went out of their way to make us welcome and keep the place immaculate and well maintained.

“Beautiful house with amazing views and a very warm welcome from the owners.”
Reviewed May 8, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Lovely house in the village of Ramni in the foothills of the White Mountains. Absolutely fantastic views in all directions, mountains behind and Souda bay in front. Nice pool, a little bit cool at the start of May (although not cool enough to stop me from using it), and nice garden. Very entertaining watching the House Martins swooping over the pool to drink from it.

About a 25 minute drive from Kalyves on the coast, which is where we went for grocery shopping. Road is quite wide and has a good surface, but is a mountain road so has plenty of hairpin bends and steep drops. Stilos is a bit nearer and has some cafes/restaurants (we didn't try them so can't comment on them). Ramni itself is picturesque but there aren't really any amenities there.

Very warm welcome from the owners including samples of their own wine, Raki and persimmons.

We really enjoyed our stay, mainly just relaxing at the house, taking in the views and visiting Aptera and Kalyves.
