“Misleading”
Reviewed 20 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This villa is very basic and feels very dated and run down. Upon our arrival there was absolutely nothing in the way of a welcome pack as is usual with villas so no chance of even a tea or coffee. Not even a bottle of water in the fridge. A family arriving would have had a disaster with tired and hungry children. It was totally minimalistic in that there was no extra toilet paper, cleaning chemicals, bin liners etc.No bins for rubbish either. It was a bare villa indeed. We were given new sheets by a maid knocking the door which we fitted ourselves-there was no cleaner at all during our stay.

The road up is incredibly rough and not even fit for walking. The location is very poor and without a car you are stuffed as there are no amenities for several kilometres.

Only positives are good wi-fi and stunning view, but you could do far better for a more modern and higher standard villa. As someone said about a another similar villa on the development, it is a 5 star price for a 2 star villa.

Clearly there is no investment here and it is not run in a professional manner at all.

Management Response

I would like to thank this client for his review. All reviews are studied very carefully so that we improve our villas accordingly.
Further to the above the following should be noted:
1. Nowhere in our advertisement we mention that we offer a welcome pack. Our standard practice is to provide such a pack if it is requested in advance by the client giving a list of items to be included in such a welcome pack.
2. Our cleaner has knocked the entrance door of the villa at mid stay in order to enter, clean the villa and replace the linen. This clients have not allowed her to enter and instead they have taken from her the fresh linen and asked her to leave.
3. As regards the minor items that according to the client have been missing the obvious question why they have not asked the staff to provide them.
4. The local roads are maintained by the municipality and we do whatever further
maintenance we can to improve them.
5. At the end of every season we plan for any renovation required so that it is carried out by the beginning of the new season.

“Fantastic villa with gorgeous views and a private pool”
Reviewed 16 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Absolutely loved our stay at Villa Urania (Oyrania). Beautiful villa, great location overlooking the Gulf of Messenia. Clean, comfortable and well-serviced villa. Clean bed linen and towels delivered twice a week by lovely staff. Plenty of room for our family of five, but enough accommodation for at least one other person, maybe two. Stunning vistas and very private, ideal for a quiet, relaxing getaway. The only downside was the rather steep road leading up to the villa. It's a bit rough going, but very manageable if you drive cautiously. Absolutely worth the drive up when you get there! Would definitely consider returning at some stage in the future. Also, great communication from owner and his local representatives. We had a minor issue that was dealt with satisfactorily within an hour. Couldn't ask for better.
