“Perfect location”
Reviewed October 15, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Wanted a quality villa as near to the sea as possible, and this perfectly filled the brief. Spacious good quality accommodation, comfy beds, clean and tidy, the only thing I found uncomfortable was the sofa. If there are more than three of you, the lounge furniture is a bit sparse, but you will probably be outside most of the time. Just a few yards to the sea, and a few more to the local tavernas, which are both pretty good. Beach is safe and mostly sandy, sea is clear and warm, and simply kayaks are provided for your amusement. Spyros, the owner is delightful and most helpful, leaving us a delicious welcome pack containing his very own olive oil. We will be back!

“It was perfect for us as it was so near the sea.”
Reviewed September 11, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We wanted a quiet relaxing holiday where we could swim frequently. Villa Avali provided all we could have asked for. Safe deep water swimming was available at the end of the garden and a small sandy beach with good tavernas was only a few minutes walk away. The house is secluded and comfortable. The owner was helpful and the accommodation was very clean with enough equipment for self-catering. Air conditioning in the bedrooms was necessary at night and the fan was useful in the living room as it was very hot at times.

“Fantastic villa - beautiful location”
Reviewed August 2, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed for two weeks in this fabulous villa - could have easily stayed for much longer! Villa description is accurate, but no words can convey its brilliant location. The crystal clear sea is literally just outside the gate, where you can sunbathe or swim off the rocks. You can swim/walk round to the lovely little beach just a couple of hundred metres away, where there are a couple of nice little tavernas.

We were met by the owner Spyros, who was extremely helpful, providing lots of useful information. He kept in regular contact during our stay to ensure that everything was OK.

The villa itself was extremely comfortable, spacious, well equipped and clean. We were a party of only 3 - myself, my husband and our teenage son, but for larger parties it could benefit from an additional indoor shower. The outside shower was really useful for after swimming.

We really enjoyed using the kayaks (provided free of charge) to paddle to nearby beaches, including little coves accessible only by sea. Also spent many hours snorkeling watching the fish.

Nearby restaurants recommended by Spyros were all very nice and good value for money. The villa is only 30 minutes from the airport, but a car is really required to get out and about.

We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this villa and hope to back ourselves soon.

“A privilege! - to stay in such beautiful accommodation in such a perfect location”

We are a family of four with 2 grown up children. We stayed in the smaller property for 6. We also saw the other property and it was equally spectacular. The location is breathtaking. The photos on their website are exactly how it is - just stunning! Accommodation clean, modern, elegant and efficient with a lovely sense of style. Home from home. They even had beach towels and sea kayaks for use! Everything was provided to make it a comfortable holiday including soaps and shampoos and washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets the kinds of things you don't really want to be buying for a 2 week stay.The owners are only a phone call away to help with anything that they are able to make the stay more comfortable. You do need a car for this location then you have access to supermarkets, restaurants and water sports activities within 20 mins. Although there is no swimming pool which for us was unnecessary the sea is literally in front of the property - 30 secs and you're in! Wonderful! Can't praise it highly enough. A wonderful home, location and delightful family owners. It was a privilege.

“The great place to spend summer vacation with family!”

We spent 2 great weeks in this authentic hideaway supreme house.
The scenery was breathtaking, amazing water color and truly peaceful.
The villa, held by a lovely and very attentionate greek family, was very functional and easy to live in. The lawn offered great barefoot soccer for the kids.
Kayaks were available too. The sea being so near, it was very convenient to take a swim then an outdoor shower and sunbath at the villa. The car was really welcomed as there were no mini market within walking distance.
From the airport follow the owner’s good driving instruction rather than a GPS.
Great BBQ place we have done almost every evenings.
Miss it already, would definitely come again!!

“Simply Amazing”
Reviewed June 25, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This is one of those places that you could re-visit year after year. The villa itself is perfect in every way, the owners attentive (they provide you with a mobile phone in case you need to contact them!) and the surrounding area beautiful. There are a couple of tavernas a two minute walk away for lunch or an evening meal. The clear sea is a stone's throw from the villa with steps leading down into the water. There are kayaks available whenever you need them if you fancy a bit of exercise other than swimming.
However, the view from the villa in the morning and evening has to be seen to be believed. It is breathtaking.
We will be back.
