Villa Dahlia is set on a large property on the hill with views down on Nydri, together with four other villas owned by the same family. Each villa is very private and we were not overlooked by any of them. I do not like resorts with many (often impersonal and very commercial) villas, so I was a bit worried it would feel like that, but this was absolutely not the case. The villa was impressively clean when we arrived, and we were given plenty of information by the nice owners. They were always available, and on the one occasion there was something not working, it was solved immediately. An automatic gate separates the public road from the private road towards the villas, which is covered with concrete all the way, unlike some other properties near Nydri where there is only a rocky private road which not only makes the climb rather scary but also you end up fearing for the survival of the rental car. The owners have two dogs, but as we had two members of our group that are scared of dogs, they were kept away from our villa. It is just a detail, but it indicates the consideration of the owners for the well-being of their guests. The gardens are carefully maintained with beautiful flowers, as is the side of the private road which is lined with pine-trees. The view from the villa is impressive. Two years ago, we rented villa Lily, which we also liked a lot, but personally, I prefer Dahlia, as it has an easier access from the kitchen to the terrace and swimming pool, for bringing food and drinks outside and for the children to go in and out of the house or for watching them. There is also a very comfortable shady lounge area: ideal for a lazy afternoon reading a book, or for an evening aperitif. The stone barbecue was very clean when we found it and it did a perfect job. The swimming pool is about 55 m2, rather quite long than wide, which makes it perfect for having a swim. The advantage is that the amount of water to be heated by the sun is less for such a length than with a pool that would be of rather "traditional" width. The width is anyway enough for several people swimming together. The depth is about the same everywhere (+/- 1.50 meters), but there is a small mini-pool connected to it which is shallow for little children to play in. Inside, the house is decorated to the personal taste of the owners, which makes it feel like a "real" house, not an "Ikea-type" house. The kitchen is well equipped. This is a house that feels more like home every day.
