Iveta, Sofia, Bulgaria May 2015

Genuinely Greek, cosy and comfortable! There is some magic around the place which is authentically Greek and old, modern and cosy at the same time. The location is great, far from the noise and fuss of regular tourist destinations. The house is clean, spacious and well-decorated. The garden is magnificent, with the most remarkable roses I have ever seen in a private house. Perfect place for families with children. And, most importantly, the hosts are extremely hospitable, warm and responsive to the guests needs.

The house itself is so remarkable so it made our holiday even more memorable. It is comfortable, charming, cosy and completed even in small details. The location is very strategic for best beaches. The place is wonderful for calm, relaxing holiday, for nature lovers and retreat.

This large, old house is impeccably renovated and furnished in rustic, chic style using local materials and charming furnishings. The house could be featured in Cote Sud. The garden is also lovely, overlooking a valley, which gives a palatial feel, though its not that large. Immaculate. Well furnished kitchen. Also stone barbecue outside. All the mod cons. The owners charming father showed us around and pointed out the places to go on the map. There was a cleaning mid-week. The village has a nice little taverna, otherwise nothing else except honey stands and fig trees but its not a far drive from some spectacular beaches. We did shopping in Vassiliki and Agios Petros. No pool, but all the more incentive to get out and explore. Would absolutely recommend this beautiful house to anyone. We were two parents and three teens and had no shortage of space.

This was one of the most beautiful places we have ever lived in. It was great to leave everything behind and spend some quiet days in such an amazing place. Thank you for your hospitality! Hopefully we will be back in the future.

This house is magnificent! We were here for our honeymoon and found the island and the Meli house to be the perfect relaxing, romantic setting. We enjoyed cooking meals in the kitchen and the wood-burning oven, relaxing in your beautiful garden, and taking the bikes out for a scenic ride. Thank you most of all for your incredible hospitality - for your suggestions of which beaches to go to, the amazing Rachi restaurant and the fun winery tour. We wish you the best of luck and continued success with your business - we would recommend it in a heartbeat! Cheers!

Shlomit, Tel Aviv, Israel Aug 2011

Thank you for your hospitality and help during our vacations. The house is lovely and was equipped with everything we could want and more. We loved the peace and quiet and the mornings in the garden, with the flowers and the mountain view. The beaches on Lefkada are great, we especially liked Afteli which was so secluded and small. You really provided us with everything to make our stay special.

My primary work is at a Greek Bank. A few years ago, our family decided to renovate my father's family stone house. It is a property of 150-years old with unique local architectural characteristics. After a few years of quite hard work, we managed to restore it and transform it to a vacation property of high standards which leaves its guests with the best of memories. We feel very proud of this.
