“Stunning Villa with stunning views”
Reviewed 26 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Our families spent 2 glorious weeks at Villa Grand Avali. We was warmly welcomed by Spyros and his mother, Aspasia who kindly gave us a welcome gift to get us started on our holiday. The villa was exceptionally clean, comfortably furnished and big enough for a large family. The views were spectacular and the grounds are well maintained. There is no need for a pool as you have the crystal clear sea right on your doorstep. There are lots of activities to do at the villa such as snorkelling, kayaking, swimming, ping pong, badminton and more! We did hire a vehicle to travel around the beautiful island and thank Aspasia for the many tips she gave us as we visited some more beautiful beaches. We spent most evenings on the balcony enjoying a lovely meal that we cooked on the bbq that was there. This was defiantly the best villa we have ever stayed in and would return again.

“Fabulous house with stunning views and turquoise cove for idyllic swimming.”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The photographs advertising this delightful property do not in anyway do it justice. We were totally 'wowed' on arrival. This is an amazing house with incredible views and sits right above it's very own and utterly beautiful turquoise cove.
The house is superbly appointed and the bedrooms and bathrooms are lovely. The enormous terrace looking down onto the Sea is the real selling point with great furniture for relaxation and eating plus a great BBQ area.
The property is huge and we had 9 staying very comfortably and the boys and girls loved the table tennis and use of all the kayaks that Spyros provides.
From Avali we were able to find many other great beaches but to be honest we loved our own beach the best and you could just be as happy staying put if you are not the adventurous type.
We thank Spyros for his exceptional kindness, attention to detail and nothing was ever too much trouble. We hope to return one day.

“Great location, gorgeous house!”
Reviewed 7 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We just returned from an amazing week at the Grand Avali villa. The villa is truly one of the most amazing and fully equipped houses I have stayed at, especially for the price. There were 8 of us and the place was large enough for all, where each had some privacy if needed. The house looks exactly like in the pictures if not better. There are quiet spots for the readers, amazing water for the swimmers (completely clear and flat 24/7), great little cove for the snorkelers and diving platforms for fun. Great sunrise and sunset and nice little breeze at all times. Easy access to the water through the little beach for the careful ones. Kayaks, wifi, satellite TV and ping pong table simply complete the picture for a great place to be. Spyros, the host, is simply lovely, was very accessible and always making sure we were taken care of. It is a short drive from/to the airport, which sounds strange considering that it is a little piece of paradise. Very accessible route to any other part of the island, although you do not really need to leave unless you choose to. You have everything you may need and want right there. Not crowded with tourists (mostly Greeks around, which was part of the great experience for us) and very private although not an isolated location. Definitely a place I would suggest to anyone who is looking for a gorgeous location and villa for a group of people. Great little places for local food at walking or short drive distance. Simply lovely and worth the trip!

“Beyond Expectations”

My boyfriend and I and a group of friends spent 10 days in the amazing Villa Grande! It was an incredible stay and both the experience and the house and location were beyond our expectations. The house is very comfortable and large, the views are amazing and the owner , Spyros, made sure that we were provided with everything we needed. Clean shower towels, clean beach towels, fully accessorised kitchen, outdoor bbq, air conditioning, ping pong table, sun loungers in the terrace, garden and for the beach, kayaks , footballs, raquets and so much more!
Very welcoming and comfortable. The house lies just above an amazing cove with the cleanest waters ever, the snorkelling is great! just along the beach is a couple beach bars , with delicious local food.

Access to the airport is super easy, 20-30 min drive and so is access to other destinations like mount Ainos, Myrtos Beach, Sami, Melissani etc.

HIGHLY recommended , we will be back!!

Management Response
19 Dec 2013
Thanks so much for your feedback!

We are so glad that you and your friends enjoyed your stay with us.

As far as the lack of a swimming pool is concerned, please consider that, although tourist operators have imposed the need for a pool on villas in our area, we are concerned about potential environmental impact from chemical use and pool construction, since our villa is located on a coastline which is designated as a EU "Natura 2000" special area of conservation (code: GR2220004). Furthermore, keep in mind that a 10x5 m. pool, with chlorinated water, would boost the weekly rental cost, for the same villa, up to 5.000 €. Is it worth it for a villa just 30 meters from the sea?
