Spectacular!! Fantastic 10 day family holiday at the Winery Estate.
The accommodation cannot be faulted and is perfectly located for walking and taking in the panoramic views of Athinios bay, volcano and much more.
A car is needed if, like us, you want to get around the island and stock up from the local supermarkets.
We had a private sunset cruise to the volcano and this was undoubtedly our best day of the holiday. If you can afford this little extra luxury you will not regret it.
There were 11 people in our party and there was plenty of room to wine and dine together, play in the pool or split up if you need time alone.
This has to be one of the best family holidays we’ve ever had and I would recommend it to anyone.
We stayed here with 8 of our friends for our wedding in May 2018. Although the winery estate was a little off the beaten track it was well situated in the centre of the island. There were a few lovely traditional Greek tavernas a short walk away in Megalochori as well as a delicious bakery just up the road!
The villa itself was immaculate and was so spacious! Was plenty big enough for a large group of people with lots of areas to eat, chill and relax. We were greeted with wine and beer, a bowl of fruit and a few essentials - such a lovely thought! Panos was fantastic - he was very attentive and came most days to clean the pool and check we were ok. All the guests had a wonderful time and we would love to return in the future.
We stayed Oct 2017 (lost my password for trip advisor!) so I’m very sorry for the late review!
We were 3 families of 9 people in total and chose not to use the pool house as it is quite separate from the main house. It would be fab for a couple (or with a baby)
The villa was very impressive on arrival and was spotlessly clean. Panos the villa manager was so helpful and there was food and drink already in the fridge as we arrived at night, he even gifted me 2 bottles of champagne for my birthday which was a lovely surprise! He helped arrange taxis, car hire, days out and my birthday meal and was a fab help throughout our stay.
The villa is in a semi rural location but easy to get to everywhere on the island. We did hire a car as I feel that the supermarket is just a little but too far if you have lots of shopping.The local town square with its restaurants is beautiful and a lovely 5/10 minutes stroll from the villa.
The villa has been restored beautifully and there are some lovely quirky touches. There is plenty of space, outdoor seating areas etc and a lovely pool area which the kids loved (was pretty cold but it was October)
We would definitely recommend!
What a place! Superbly refurbished, with all the creature comforts. Very tidy, and centrally located with easy access to the whole island. Large yet cosy, and quiet. Super staff/management.
It was the most stunning Villa I've ever stayed in, we absolutely loved it. The house obviously sleeps more then the two of us, so it was a bit spacious, but that made it all the more luxurious! We felt spoiled and pampered! One week was almost not enough time to try out all the different seating areas- terraces and little nesting corners in and around the house. If you do happen to stay there with as many people as beds you can still very easily find quiet time spread out over the different levels. The swimming pool with the "shaded throne" is devine ❤️ This side of the island feels quite authentic and unspoiled with loads of nice walks in the area. But you can also very easily get to the more bustling tourist areas, wether via a long walk or the easy bus connection. Panos - the house manager- was always available for questions or help with organising and much fun to chat to! Enough choices of restaurants and bars on walking distance! We will most definitely try to get back here at some point!
