Let me put this into perspective, my wife has been to Greece over 20 times, we met in Greece and have rented 4 other Villas in the 'better' (i.e. Greek) parts of Greece and this villa (Villa Christos; one of 3 grouped together on the hillside) was the best one we have stayed in.
Facilities were good, the owner was attentive whilst not being intrusive and although we never needed him, as he was only 10 minutes away I have no doubt he would have helped us had we needed it. The area is beautiful, if you are looking to party you probably have to bring your own, but for us as a family with a 7 & 4 year old it was great.
Why not perfect then? - The Villa drive isn't tarmac and can be 'interesting', but if you want perfect tarmac don't go to Greece. The beaches were spectacular, but the best one's we found (on the West coast) have waves that knocked me over (6ft 3in) so weren't the best for our children, but we didn't explore the beaches as we were having too good a time in the Villa, Village and Pool! In terms of the Villa facilities, in attempting to give a balanced view I would have liked to have a reading light in the Master bedroom - yes I have to be THAT pedantic
If we go to Greece next year we will go here (and ask the owner this time about the beaches), I have no hesitation in recommending it.
