We stayed at Villa Sevasti for just one night in August. After a long day of travelling, our flight from the UK arrived in Thessaloniki in the early evening and we really couldn't contemplate driving for 4½ hours to the Pelion Peninsula (where we continued our holiday) feeling tired out and hungry, with the final and worst part of the journey being the dreadful hairpin bends on mountainous roads, in the dark, arriving well after midnight!
The main criteria for somewhere to stay was it had to be not far from the National Road that would accept a reservation for one night, nothing more than that!
Our expectations were totally exceeded by Villa Sevasti. We arrived in time for a warm welcome from the staff and THE most wonderful dinner we have ever experienced in Greece. It really was the finest of fine dining.
The chef is outstandingly talented and, as with some of the other reviewers, he made regular visits to our table to advise us of the various options available and for feedback. The delicious three-course dinner we enjoyed could not have been better. We will remember it forever. The freshest of local ingredients, cooked to perfection and each dish beautifully presented like a work of art - who could ask for more? We loved everything about our meal, including the most delicious wine. It was an experience to savour.
The level of thought that has gone into Villa Sevasti is astonishing. The dining room and sitting area are have the most amazing and quirky furnishings and we loved the striking artwork on display throughout the hotel. It really is a feast for the eyes. The atmosphere is calm and relaxed, which is exactly how we felt on arrival. All the stresses of the day just evaporated and we knew we had found a marvellous place here.
Our large room with en suite facilities was wonderfully decorated, spotlessly clean and offered supreme comfort. Unusually for Greece, the shower was powerful and refreshing, with masses of hot water. We loved the thick, fluffy towels and complimentary toiletries.
Villa Sevasti is situated in the countryside, a short distance from the National Road and was really easy to find, thanks to the excellent directions provided by the owner. Our room had a large terrace, from which we could enjoy peace, quiet and fabulous views.
After such a wonderful dinner, we slept exceptionally well, enjoyed a delicious buffet breakfast and set off on our long journey, rested and relaxed, arriving in Milina in the middle of the afternoon. What a perfect way to start a holiday.
The owner, staff and chef of Villa Sevasti deserve every praise and every success. We could not fault a thing about our stay, we'd love to return and give our highest recommendation to anyone thinking of making a booking here.
