“Excellent villa for large group of firends with children!”
Reviewed 4 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Villa Despina was perfectly prepared for our squad.
We traveled with a large group of 12, including three children (five families).
The rooms were clean and air conditioning worked fine. There was enough space in the garden for barbecue and night talking. The only problem was bad smell close to the garden from time to time, probably from septic tank.
There was no problem to contact the owner before our arrival.
Villa is located nearby the beach and main street of the village (300-400 m), so the location is fantastic!
Swimming pool has additional wading pool for children.
The owner treated us to his father's raki, which was very delicous :-)
Cleaning service was provided every three days. Rooms were eqipped with bath towels and beach towels.

The villa is worth its price. We really enjoyed our stay there :)

“Nice villa in a very good location”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The villa itself is quite new and the pool, even it is smaller, is very nice. The only problem we had was with the bathroom where the shower did not work properly.
But the location is great, it is close to the shops, the beach, the nightlife and the city that you can reach easily by bus.
We enjoyed our vacation there. Thanks for everything.

“Good middle class appartment in busy tourist strip area.”
Reviewed 28 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Despina and family are very kind and friendly people. The page for the place is a little confusing at first since on first reading it is not clear that the villa is actually divided into 3 2-bedroom appartments. The pool is not very large. The location is 5 mins walk from the beach. If you want to be within crawling distance of many bars, shops and restaurants this is a good base. Cleaning is twice a week. If you would like a little more peace and quiet I would basically avoid the north coast altogether. However, the family also owns Stavros villas, in a much quieter location, a decent restaurant and a much nicer pool.
