“Beautifully maintained with a gorgeous reception from Alexanda”
Reviewed 15 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Our apartment has the most beautiful views and is perfect for our needs. We have been here for a week and have enjoyed the swimming pool and all the lovely artistic touches that have been so carefully added to make this place so welcoming. It is not 'run of the mill' it is unique and tasteful. You can ask for advice but you aren't pestered and all the staff are so friendly. Don't expect too much from the local supermarket as there is a limited supply of food but there are lovely places to visit near by - Tholos beach was our favourite.

“Great alternative to crowded hotels”
Reviewed 3 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Really nice place to stay! Christos cleared up all the questions before our trip, his father helped us a lot at the location - always at your disposal, helpful and welcoming!
A little more about the villa: it's absolutely neat, clean and spacious, has all the equipment you may need. Two balconies add charm to romantic evenings and family dinners.
The nearest beach - Voulisma - is not so close, you'd better have a car. But the best beach in our opinion (if you travel with children) is Almyros beach, near Agios Nikolaos? about 15 min by car.

“Apartment met our needs, no frills, but friendly and in a good area for travelling the coastline.”

Stayed here with my husband in the apartment for two people. I think we had the best apartment for its views over the sea and mountains. There are two balconies, at the front and back of the apartment, which was nice for catching the sun. Watching the sunset over the mountains was wonderful. Istron is a nice little village, which doesn't seem very touristy, but has a variety of resturants and bakeries. Unless you don't want to travel much, you would really need a car, although there are local buses into Agious Nickolaos (a great town). But the coastline further south has some wonderful coves and beaches. The apartment has air conditioning, which was a blessing as there are a few (!) mossies, so you can't leave windows open at night. It would have been nice if there had been some washing up liquid (even left overs!) and wine glasses. But watching the sunset with a tumbler of wine wasn't much to winge about.

“Beautiful Apartments”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

person found this review helpful

Villa castello was beautiful, surrounded by mountains and greenery. We were lucky enough to have a balcony at the back overlooking the mountains, and one at the front overlooking the sea. We were sent a clear (essential!) guide on how to arrive by car, and the apartment was clean and well equipped. We were an easy ten minute walk from Voulisma beach, a stunning Blue Flag beach surrounded by green trees, mountains, and crystal blue waters. It is slightly overcrowded, although we visited in the peak season months so presumably this is avoidable. We came to enjoy the walk down to the sea as we were able to check out local restaurants where we enjoyed some wonderful authentic cooking (oven-roasted aubergine and feta, lamb meatballs, homemade tzatziki etc.), and were met with generosity and kindness everywhere (free glasses of wine and watermelon in some places, people willing to offer us lifts for free and offer advice on where to go). My only criticism is that perhaps it should be advertised that a car is ideal. We stayed for four days and were satisfied to stay in the local area but for a longer stay we would have liked to have gone further afield, and cabs into the bigger cities were fairly pricey.
