“Smart Villa with outstanding view of the sea”
Reviewed 7 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Very comfortable and spotlessly clean villa. Very secure and the owners are delightful, providing us with home made cake and jam. On arrival there was also some lovely fresh fruit and 2 bottles of wine to welcome us. The house is on the side of a hill providing spectacular views of the sea. Set over 2 floors the lower floor has 2 large double bedrooms and a shared bathroom with large walk in shower. The main bedroom leads onto a veranda with steps to a small garden and BBQ area shared with the owners. Steps through a gate lead to a small beach. Upstairs has a lovely lounge, well equipped kitchen, further shower room and a balcony with magnificent views across the sea. Very tranquil setting.

“Absolutely wonderful”

Both the house and its owners are truly amazing. We came here in the midst of June (4 grown-ups) and had a wonderful time. The house has been built by the owners for self-occupation and therefore the rooms are spacious and every detail has been considered. We felt at home right away. It's beautifully furnished and there's no kitchen appliance missing: coffee and espresso maker, toaster, water boiler, plenty of tablewear and cutlery. The owners really think of everything. For example, we found tissue boxes next to the beds and mosquito repellents in every room of the house. There are also fly screens on all the windows. Every room was very clean and tidy.
Chrisa and Lambro, the owners, are very warm, generous and hospitable people and they take painstaking care of the house. The garden is beautiful and the patio is always clean. They also shared lovely vegetables from their garden with us and treated us like family. We're already planing to spend our next summer vacation here. Chrisa and Lambro also have a dog, Enzo, who's very kind and loves to spend most of his time in the water. The beach is only a few minutes away by foot and is very clean and wonderful for swimming. While we were there it was basically semi private. There are beautiful beaches all around and easily accessible by car. Two big supermarkets are also just a ten minute ride away from the house (the roads are a bit bumpy). Chrisa and Lambro are always ready to recommend the best places to visit and to give you any instructions you might need.
The only thing that was a bit troublesome for me personally was the rather poor internet connection. Since they don't have a landline, we were connected to the Internet via rooter + usb surf stick. If you're just looking to send a couple of messages via whatsapp it worked fine - however it got tricky if you wanted to send or receive larger files, i.e. photographs. Since they didn't have an unlimited plan, "normal" surfing habits weren't an option. However, the owners tried extremely hard to accommodate us and help with anything we needed in this respect as well. Next time, I'll just bring my own surf stick with an unlimited plan. Most people will be fine with the wifi that is available.

“Holidays in Greece at its best!”
Reviewed 31 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We, a family with two children (2 years old and 7), stayed two weeks at Villa Alti and had a most delightful and relaxing stay. The holiday home is in a calm and nice residential area, only a 7-minutes-drive from the centre of Porto Heli. The scenic town has a great natural harbour bay, many shops, nice restaurants and cafes.
The house is perfectly equipped and nicely furnished, including an extra outdoor barbecue kitchen- just perfect for our needs. Even a cot and a highchair for our son were provided.The sea-view from villa Alti is terrific and the boys enjoyed playing in the beautiful garden. Our elder son loved the lawn with the football goal and for our little son Chrysa, the owner, even organised a little bike.
Chrysa's and Tina's hospitality was overwhelming.They gave us a tour of the area, showed us the nicest little beaches and the best restaurants and had always good advice- not to forget the delicious Greek delicacy Chrysa had for us every day (self-made honey and fig jam, cheese soufflé, cake etc.).
Also the beach is terrific. It's almost private, always has enough shadow and has clear water, ideal for snorkelling. It's only 150 metres from the house, thus easily reached by food.
We made several day-trips to nice places. Don't miss to visit Epidavros, Mycene/ Nafplio and the scenic island of Spetses.
We definitely want to come back and highly recommend this absolutely terrific location.

“A slice of Paradise.”

Villa Alti is just fabulous. Spacious, well appointed, tastefully decorated, and the location is just breathtaking. Situated on a small hill overlooking the see the Villa is a short walk to a semi-private beach where we enjoyed snorkeling, swimming and just relaxing. The villa is a short drive to Porto Heli where there were many shops and restaurants as well as ferry connections to other islands. From the moment of arrival were we treated as old friends. Fresh vegetables from the garden, fabulous homemade dishes, and a personal tour around the area will definitely make your stay memorable. The owners are genuine warm and giving people. This is a stay you will remember for a long time. We will go back, unfortunately not until next year!

“Heavenly spot - with a four minute walk to a beautiful, tranquil beach”
Reviewed 27 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Villa Alti is in a fabulous spot, sitting directly above a pretty little beach, which is just a few minutes walk down a quiet track. The villa is very comfortable, with two good bedrooms and two bathrooms and a spacious balcony with a fabulous view. Chrysa, next door, was so sweet, giving us tips and many treats from her garden. Villa Alti is a ten minute drive from Porto Heli, and from Kosta, from where very regular boats can take you to Spetses in a matter of minutes. Hydra is also very easy to get to for a lovely day trip.
