"Great and beautiful house, perfectly equipped, ideal location on the island (high to enjoy the sea view but still close to the beautiful beaches between Batsi and Gavrio)"
We spent a week in the villa - 2 adults and three kids. Location - the villa is secluded, but not too secluded. It is very close to Pessada beach and its small port (about 15 min walk) which is a nice small beach that gets pretty crowded during the day. We went there only once. There is a small tavern near the beach (open only during the day, I think). Pessada village is very small and there is just one over-priced small grocery store there - it's much better to drive to the big supermarkets on the road to Argostoli (about 10 minutes drive). Villa - The villa looks pretty much the same as the pictures. The garden and private pool are wonderful. The pool is perfect for kids - not too big and not too small, the deepest end is about 150cm. Beds are comfortable and the house is spacious. We didn't cook in the house or used the small gym, as we were exploring the island most of the days. The kitchen could be better equipped for cooking, so if you plan to cook a lot at home, you'll need to buy salt, oil, etc. Communication - Stelios the owner waited for us in the airport and we followed him to the house (you must rent a car to get around). He was super helpful with recommendations and directions. Also, throughout the reservation process, the owners were very responsive in answering questions. Overall - the villa is very recommended. It is highly recommended to explore the different beaches and towns in the island - there are some really beautiful places in Kefalonia.
Hope we will see you again in Kefalonia which has some beautiful places to explore glad you had a Good Time on behalf of the Owner Stelios and online Concierge Princess Every Blessing.........
Thanks again for a wonderful week we spent in the villa. Stelios was very helpful and it helped us with recommendations and directions.
“Kostas prepared us an excellent welcoming. He was at the place he supposed to be when we arrive. He gave us lots of very wise advices about all the activities to do in the Island. He counseled us also about where to eat and where to buy the thing we needed . The house was also very confortable, pleasant, biggest than we thought and also very cosy and well decorated. The swimming pool was very pleasant. It was really possible to enjoy it as its was not overcrowded. The view from it was also exceptionnal. It's an address you must not miss. We hope to come back another time. Thank you for the warm welcome.”
Anne’s private feedback for you:
“Kaliméra Kostas, we you're well and you whole family also. Thankfull for you we spent an incredible good week in Andros. We were very pleased by all your good advices. You were a marvellous host. Thank you more than anything to have invited us to share a dinner with you in your home. Baptiste will never forget the hunt for eggs (real ones) and the goats. We hope to see you in France or Greece or somewhere else (we've never been in Chicago). We keep in touch with you anyway by internet, phone and so on. "un grand bonjour amical" from France. See you soon : Anne, Antoine, Baptiste and Pascal”
“« A 10 minutes en voiture des commerces mais la vue est à couper le souffle. Il suffit juste de s'organiser pour ne pas redescendre dix fois pour faire les courses. »”
Such an amazing villa!! Perfect size for a family of 4-5.
The pool never disappointed and the host was such a wonderful person!!
Overall one of the best vacations we've ever had!
Very nice House located upon the Hill of Doukades.
Anna was very quick in the conversation. You have nice Views over the Valley and you are close to many Beaches up on the West Side. Doukades is still an unspoiled Destination which we really loved.
Local contact Betty is very welcoming.
I recommend the place to anyone who has a rental car. One super Plus is the Outdoor Shower under the olive tree with spectacular views.
The only thing you need to know that there is 2 Houses next to each other, so it is not fully private and the smaller one has only a Double Bed and a Couch that folds out.
Our stay was unforgettable. The house was beautiful, the owner was amazing
and very helpful. Express my gratitude to Mr Efthimios.
We will definitely visit this house next summer 100%.
We have rented this apartment from 12 to 19 May due to a short holiday near Athens.
It was our first experience with Airbnb, and that is fairly regular basis.
In the reservation there was some confusion about the pricing with the landlord but here we have reached good through airbnb.
The reception was very cordial. The landlord Anna Peter had arranged a taxi for us which went smoothly.
Upon arrival in Artemida were evenings after arrival met by our host Marie with her daughter and an employee who gave us a tour of the apartment.
The refrigerator was partially filled so that we could only have breakfast the next day, well done! We had a wonderful week. The weather was great and the apartment was across from the beach of Artemida where we swam delicious.
Also, you could walk along the magnificent coastline towards Rafina and got the coast there a more rocky nature, very beautiful.
The center of Athens was easily accessible by public transport (bus / metro).
The apartment was spacious, clean, sober terms of kitchen and bathroom, but its price / performance fine. The beach promenade of Artemida has many restaurants where you can eat well for very little money. At the weekend it is pleasantly busy.
It is mainly oriented to the Greeks (few foreign tourists), which is very nice. The people were very cordial about it. One flaw I found myself the many litter what you saw on the beach and in the streets of Artemida.
In my opinion does the city and the beautiful surrounding themselves with this deficit. All in all, we look back on an extraordinary and wonderful week in Artemida and we can whosoever is considering taking a vacation in the near Athens, recommend this apartment.
What Albert loved about your listing:
In terms of price / quality ratio was flat in its entirety. Especially the spacious balcony with sea view and nearby beach was great.
Perfect location--very close to bank, supermarket (excellent prices), FIRA, bakeries, main highway, gas stations and easy access to airport and other major towns. Very clean as well.
Entry breakfast of strawberries, yogurt, and breakfast wine were a nice touch and very much appreciated.
We had a wonderful time and Nikos was so cordial and kind. The view out back is stunning. Thank you for helping us arrange this stay!--

Concierge was an excellent property manager, quick in her replies and even organised a rental car with a baby seat for us since we had a 6 months old baby. Nicolas the property manager was welcoming and a very nice man. He welcomed us and provided fresh fruit on our arrival. He even drove us to a local restaurant! The house was centrally located about 2km to town. It was clean and well furnished for our needs. I would not hesitate to recommend this listing to anyone. A big thanks to Anna and Nicolas for making our trip to Santorini a breeze.Dina Yu Asia

Mykonos Villa Blu
This is an amazing villa that we stayed in as a group of 4 friends June.
It is exactly as shown in the pictures, it is in excellent condition and the hosts were very friendly and helpful throughout whenever we needed anything.
I would definitely stay here again and would recommend to anyone who wants to visit Mykonos. Villa location -
The villa has a spectacular sea view with amazing views of the sunset every evening. It is about 5 minute drive from Ornos town and 20 minute drive from Mykonos town. A car is essential for this location. Pool - The pool is perfect size and very clean.
There are lots of sunbeds and lots of places to sit and relax outside. Living area - There is a large living room and dining room inside that is very nicely furnished and homely. There is also a sitting area and dining table on the balcony outside which is excellent for relaxing in the shade and eating outdoors.
The kitchen has everything you need in terms of appliances, cutlery, plates etc. for meals. Bedrooms - The two top floor bedrooms have double beds and air conditioning and sea views. The two other bedrooms are on the ground floor. One has a double bed and a fan which keeps the room cool. The other room is smaller and has a single bed (as stated in the description). They are all in good condition. Our linen and towels were changed halfway through our 5 day trip which was good.
Overall, this is a fantastic villa which made our trip to Mykonos a great experience. We would recommend it to anyone planning a trip to Mykonos.
