We stayed at Villa Gecko last August. Its a beautiful villa (both on the exterior and interior). Clean and very nicely kept! The location is really good - quite close to the beach resort of Arillas and the beautiful old village of Afionas. And a great supermarket very close by. The owner Graham is incredibly friendly, fantastically helpful and very... more

Management response:

We are very pleased to receive another positive review from a new guest. Excellent & thanks! The only negative comment we have had so far was that the villa was hard to find - but detailed directions to the villa are provided (in both English & Greek), so...... more

"We return to Villa Gecko every year and are never disappointed. It is a really comfortable house, very clean and cared for - wifi connection (very important!), beautiful location - awesome sunset views, nice garden. It's well equipped on all levels and when we're there, it feels like home. Totally recommended." more

Management response:

Regular visitors - they have caught "the bug" of Arillas & The Gecko (as did we ourselves!). We see many repeat visitors in Arillas & we think we know why..... Try it for yourself! more

Villa is a little difficult to find at first, set back and above the road, just round a sharp bend, with no house name on the outside gate. But once in, it has more than you need for a short stay. A car is a necessity for getting to a choice of lovely beaches and plenty of restaurants. more

Management response:

"A little difficult to find" is, I believe, part of it's charm & adds to it's seclusion - but each to their own. Everything else is "as it say's on the tin". Just check out the views etc.! more
