We've just returned from an amazing stay at Villa Aleva.
We arrived very early on Saturday morning (around 3am!!) and were welcomed by Harikleia and her husband, who had left us a lovely welcome basket of homemade treats, soft drinks, fruit and wine (plus about 10 bottles of water we had requested -thank you!).
The villa itself was gorgeous and very traditional, their was plenty of space and the house had everything you needed. The outdoor area was my favourite and where we spent most of our time! A large swimming pool (and small baby pool) that caught the sun all day (until 6ish) with plenty of room for sunbed and also a huge hammock if that took your fancy!!
There was plenty of outdoor seating and the tables were large enough to seat the whole group - perfect for a dinner outside!

We didn't have a car with us, but there is a road train that runs from just down the hill (7-10 minute walk. Be warned their is one short hill on the way back that isn't for the faint hearted, but it is short and we managed to carry everything between us with no injuries! The road train runs 30 past the hour every hour up to 10.30 (I think) and costs €3 for a single and €5 for a return and will take you all the at to Karavostasi Beach (a must if you are visiting) in 25 minutes!! Alternatively a cab is €8 if you prefer. There is a great restaurant there that we visited called Taverna Karavostasi. There is a supermarket at stop 3 of the little train.

Overall the trip was excellent, Bali is beautiful, the Villa exceeded expectations and the hosts could not have been more accommodating!! Hopefully we will see you again in the next few years!

“Most amazing stay!!! ”
Reviewed 30 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Had the most wonderful stay at the Villa, it really was amazing! The whole family were so helpful and made our stay very special. The area is great and the pool and garden were so beautiful, I would definitely recommend a car and a boat trip. We asked Evangelos for things to do and he wS truly helpful and his parents who live next door were such special people! I wish I could give 6 stars!!! X

“Wonderful stay at a most welcoming place”
Reviewed 31 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We have stayed there for seven nights; we were two families one: couple with three small kids (1.5 to 9) and the other couple with one small kid (2+). The villa i must say looks much more beautiful in reality than in pictures...:-), a warm authentic design and absolutly beautiful large garden surrounding the villa; the villa itself was fully equipt , very clean and very comfortable. But above all, the warm hospitality was outstanding and made our stay even better. The ownders lives next door and give you complete privacy with such a warm and carying hospitality. It is absolutly a place for us to visit again.

“Beautiful villa in Bali, generous hosts”
Reviewed 22 September 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We were a mixed group with kids, teenagers and grownups and everyone found the villa charming and perfect. Bali is a little hidden gem and was a great location for day trips around the island. The hosts are the nicest people you will meet and their warm and friendly attitude made our stay at the villa unforgettable.

The kids didn't wan't to leave the villa :), the pool was to inviting for them...
The hosts were very nice, always with a smile on their face, ready to help.
The fresh greens from their garden were a very pleasant bonus, not to mention that you can make a excellent lemonade with lemons and oranges right from the house garden :)
