Ideal for family occasions or for 2 families who want to go on holiday together.The villa is situated on the outskirts of the quiet and traditional village of Karavados,which has local tavernas and a mini market.However, the busy town of Argostoli and the resort of Lassi are 15min drive away. The long beach of Lourdas with the ever changing turquoise blue clear water and its fine silver sand is only 4km away, while it will only take you 5 min to drive up the hill to the Venetian fortress of St.George.The property has been awarded with a 2014 Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor and has also been issued with an EOT Licence (Greek National Tourist Organization).

I was very fortunate to be able to rent the Villa Thalis, as I understood that it has already been booked for 6 weeks in a row for Summer 2018! It is the stand alone villa (not a bungalow!) on the property and each accommodation has his parking space. The owner's website describes exactly what you can expect as far...

My family and I have spent a great week here. We have rented one of the villas and also a bungalo and we are really pleased with the conditions of these two accommodations. The view is beautiful, you can see the mountains and the sea from the location. We also fell in love with the lavande arboretums surrounding the buildings....

We had to cancel our booking due to family illness but then were able to rebook when it became possible to travel. Maria and the family couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming. Wonderful place to stay, away from the bustle but easy to reach. Close to good beaches - recommend Avithos and the lovely southern part of the island...
