“Beautiful, unspoilt and peaceful”
Reviewed 20 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Cannot recommend this villa enough!
An extremely well equipped modern villa which was immaculately clean upon arrival. It is in a very quiet and peaceful location so a car is a must even if it is just to pop to the shops. There were ten of us staying and we managed with one car.

The local town is just lovely and we spent a couple of days at The Rock Bar right on the beach which was a great location for a bottle of Prosecco to watch the sun go down!

We travelled with two other families and had five children between us who enjoyed the water sports provided by George who was great!

We also ate lunch at Dragons Cave which has stunning views and amazing food! There are some lovely Tavernas locally to spend the evenings in too.

We would definitely recommend this villa and would love to visit again!

Thank you Galina for the positive points.
Point taken with regard to any mid stay cleaning. We will amend our contract to clearly explain that a mid stay linen change is all that is included(--As stated in the information book provided). If mid stay cleaning is required, this must be arranged and paid for locally,via our agent on site.

“Perfect holiday home from home”
Reviewed 27 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We have just returned from a 10 day stay at Villa Estia. The perfect escape from the UK in October.
The villa is exceptionally well appointed, benefitting from lots of features to keep a 3 and a 5 year old occupied. The pool is a great size, and a TV, Wii and DVD player can be used when it gets too hot. Evening explorations around the villa yielded sneak views of toads, owls, and geckos - VERY exciting for small boys!
The villa is amazingly well supplied with all manner of kitchen equipment and crockery. We didn't need to bring towels, and are going home with clean clothes thanks to the washing machine.
The beach at Makrigialos is one of the best I have been to, with beautiful sand (for digging), a very shallow and warm sea, and excellent tavernas for refreshments.
We will be returning.

Hi Caroline,
Marvellous. Lots of thanks for your review.
So pleased that your boys got to see some of the local wildlife and all in a safe setting. We too like to take our grandchildren around in an evening looking for geckos and other animals.
Glad the villa met your expectations too.
Kind regards,
MARTIN
