Beautiful villa
We booked this villa last minute and were not disappointed. The villa is amazing, it’s huge. We were 5 adults and two small children and we all had room to spread out and have plenty of space. We were met on arrival and everything explained to us. Any queries while we were there were responded to immediately. The swimming pool is spectacular with outside showers and toilet, and there is also a children’s playground! Unfortunately because of coronavirus they were not able to provide any cleaning service during our stay but as we spent most of the time outside it wasn’t a problem keeping the kitchen and bathrooms clean. The master bedroom is fantastic with a dressing room and large bathroom. There were plenty of further bedrooms and bathrooms spread out over 2 floors. The double bedroom next to the master bedroom has a very hard mattress but there were more bedrooms than we needed so we ended up not using that room. We had a travel cot provided which looked new. The villa has 4 floors in total including the basement with a small gym. The lift was very useful. The air conditioning worked well and the villa is well lit at night. There is a bar b q area and fruit trees in the grounds. We had lemons, figs, grapes and pomegranates fresh from the garden. The nearest supermarkets are 10 minutes drive and similar distance to the lovely beach, restaurants & bars. It’s only 15 minutes from the airport. The outside furniture on the patio is worn and should be replaced but I believe that will be done next year. We had a fantastic holiday staying at Villa Metaxis. Definitely a great family villa all round, we hope to return one day.

"perfect for our needs"
The location proved to be excellent as you are near enough to the major city`s but yet far enough away to be peaceful. On arrival the greeting received from Marta , Jon and Andrea`s was fabulous and instantly made you feel welcome . the villa is beautifully furnished both inside and out and has all the things you will need for a great stay & wow that pool !! All in all a great place to stay for large families and a lovely Island . we will return soon

Perfetto
La villa e' perfetta, lussuosa grande e ben arredata ,piscina bellissima, e tutte la comodità possibil dalla palestra al campo da calcetto ,governante a disposizione (Marta ) gentile e premurosa,momenti di relax indimenticabili a bordo di una grande piscina con dondolo e divani , grandi grigliate con cucina all'aperto con barbecue e forno a legna, forse aspetto negativo e' proprio questo così comoda che hai difficoltà a uscire . Posizione isolata e tranquilla . PS non do "eccellente" quasi mai.
