Nice Place - pity about the neighbours pets!

We often do Grecian Villa Holidays. This place ticks all the boxes for amenities. Our villa was ‘Joanna’ which has 3 bedrooms - so nicely spacious. Each bedroom has an en-suite, albeit a shower attachment over a bath. However no plumbing issues. Kitchen was moderately equipped although no dishwasher. Clearing service good. The main negative were the ’dogs’ - some nights their whining was incessant - all through the night. Unfortunately we also found the main proprietor rather officious. I certainly didn’t need a rant on towel changing when one day we were left with none (due to a simple mistake by the super cleaning staff). I hope you enjoy your stay - as my pics show it’s a nice place - but on a development with around a dozen other villas. Joanna was the closest villa to the neighbours dog pound!
Not rustic !! Run down!!

We had high expectations of these villas, but was greatly disappointed ! ! The setting and exterior of these properties were beautiful but unfortunately the interior of the villa desperately needs attention in all areas . The property is being run to the ground with no money being put back into making this the outstanding place it could be on the island. The villa was dirty, linen & pillows in desperate need of replacement along with all electrical appliances, pool needed properly cleaning and floor surface redoing . For the money Tui are charging for this property you would expect higher standards.. also the rep who we reported our issues with on our meet and greet did not want to know ! Turned down an invitation to come and look for himself and we never saw him again for the rest of our 2 weeks stay, not even to check if our issues had been dealt with , which they weren’t !!! We had to buy 2 saucepans, oven gloves and other cooking equipment as there was inadequate facilities for self catering !! It stated in the pool rules not to use glasses around the pool but no plastic alternatives were provided. The bed was the most uncomfortable We have ever slept in !!! The shower heads were dirty and sprayed water everywhere but on you !! The shower curtain was disgusting !! The area around the pool was dangerous with broken concrete and uneven surfaces and all pool furniture ready to be condemned !! The island itself is beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed exploring it, this is a place I have visited many times before but the first time I have been completely let down by our decision in where to stay !!

Was a bit worried after booking then finding a mix of reviews that the place was a bit tired. However, my worries were mislaid! Such a lovely villa and private pool. The cooking facilities were enough for use to cook our breakfasts and a few evening meals. Though the cooker dials had worn away so we had to guess on temperature, it did not deter us and was no big deal! As per some of the reviews, the stairs and upstairs floor boards were a bit creaky but that only added to the charm of the stone villa. Just a note: the mattresses were hard and there are plenty of blankets sheets and pillows. We swam every day and enjoyed sunning on the patio when we weren't out exploring the island. We had a lovely lady who came every day and cleaned up after us, always smiling (as was Maria). Maria runs the establishment and heads the kitchen. She made sure everyone was happy and well fed. Very lovely lady to whom nothing was too much. Another highlight was the Greek Night. My family are not normally ones who enjoy these sort of things but we found ourselves up dancing, enjoying the wine (from their estate) and freshly cooked meal. We would definitely stay here again.

we stayed for 2 weeks in July, while the villa could do with some improvements like better shower and Wifi the Aresti villas were great, very peaceful and Maria and her team work very hard A car is essential but the villas are central and you can explore the island easily visiting various beaches with tremendous water soorts. zante is well worth a try
Getting tired now!

We have previously rated these villas as excellent before, but sadly they have become average. We have stayed at these villas many times now and yes they are peaceful, beautiful surroundings and relaxing, But the owner now needs to invest in their upkeep if he wants people to keep coming back. We have stayed in a couple of different villas and Facilities have been dwindling over the years. You don’t even get a dishcloth any more. The villa needs a good clean, sheets need to fit the beds properly & something needs to be done about the amount of pigeons, and pigeon poo! Maria works endlessly and is very friendly and will do anything for you. The pool needs a good clean as there is a build up of chemicals around the top. For such beautiful buildings, we feel they deserve better.
