Our stay in one of the villa's was fine. We overlooked the broken mesh screen panels in the doorways of both our bedrooms and the one in the living room door which fell out of its runners early on (which we got blamed for). My 6yo son sat on an armchair during the first couple of days of our stay, it immediately collapsed backwards. The back feet had broken folding in on themselves. My son is very lightweight, he literally sat on this chair. It was clearly broken or very faulty. The host took it away to fix it with NO word that we would be blamed for it or charged at a later date! So we were very shocked when a MONTH after our stay (of keeping our deposit!), they decided to deduct 280 euros off our deposit for fixing the armchair! We were told at the end of our stay there were no problems and we'd get our deposit back ASAP. The host became really rude, refused to even show us the invoice / receipt of this apparent fixing even though we did not break it. She then refused to speak to us and got a pretend lawyer to email us! We're livid that she has ripped us off and ruined our holiday.
It should also be noted that you're not allowed to make any noise outside including the swimming pools during "siesta" which is basically the entire afternoon so if you have kids, this doesn't make for a fun time. The host told us off for my 6yo simply jumping in and out of the pool (not even shouting). We were not told of this rule prior to booking and only found out from the notices by the pools.
The villas were beautiful , really nice decorated.They were clean, spacious with outstanding view .
The pools and the surrounding areas also very clean .
The staff is very friendly and helpful!
The area and the food worth the visit.
I want already to come back !
The villas are excellent, this was the 2nd time I visited Poliana Estate over the last 3 years. It is about 3.5 hours drive from Athens and it's the perfect weekend getaway.
We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful designed villa which was a perfect for our family. We loved the pool and the view. The kitchen was really well appointed and had everything we needed. Maria was a great host with exellent communication and gave us some good tips on restaurants and beaches in the area. Wish we could have stayed longer and hope to come back one day!!!
One thing is for sure, you are going to have a GREAT time at Poliana estate.
We had the 2 bedroom villa which was the ideal holidays with all the comforts of your own house.
Primarily, you have all the touristic spots close to you for exploration (Agios Nikolaos, Stoupa, Kardamili), but most importantly, even if you're too lazy to go out, you get to enjoy all your meals (which you can prepare at the kitchen, it has EVERYTHING), your coffee or your drink at your own private veranda gazing at the Mediterranean view: the sea, the sun and the summer breeze. For us it was therapeutic!!
