“Perfect relaxing holiday”
Reviewed 2 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We were highly delighted with the villa in every respect. There are great balconies to sit out on as well as a sun terrance. Robbie the owner was very helpful when we booked giving us lots of advice and information. He put us in touch with Rosemary who manages the complex and she kindly arranged car hire for us. The complex is well managed and beautifully maintained and Rosemary is very helpful and always on hand if needed. There are tavernas and shops within a few minutes walk of the Grapevines which is very convenient. We would not hesitate in returning Makrigiolas and staying in this villa again.

“Perfect & Relaxing”

We stayed here last year, but for some reason had trouble posting a review at the time. 9 months later and we still remember it as a beautiful and relaxing break, is there anything better to sit out on your balcony on a morning with a coffee watching the sun rise over the mountains, or to sit on another balcony with a glass of wine to watch the sun set on an evening. With a great corner spot there is no shortage of balcony space.

The villa is in a superb location with easy access to restaurants and shops. It had everything we needed and more. A great bonus was unlimited internet access for only 10 euro for the week and an unexpected mid week change of towels and linen.
The pool and surrounding areas are kept immaculate at all times with plenty of space to enjoy the sun. The pool is a great size to be shared by such a small amount of villas.
No hesitation in recommending.

“Fabulous and relaxing family holiday!”
Reviewed 19 April 2012 for a stay in April 2012

This Easter, rather than travelling to see relatives, we decided to go away and enjoy some mediterranean culture... Being early Easter and still a week away from the Orthodox Easter, we had the place all for ourselves. The weather was fabulous and warm enough to spend days on the beach and Robbie and Rosemary made us feel at home at Grapevines.
The place is well equipped with also games and films to entertain young children and Rosemary, the site manager, was always nearby to solve any issue or answer any question (thank you!!).
The only advice I would give is, if you plan to also spend some time sightseeing archeological sites, then you are in the wrong side of the island! The west part would be better to avoid spending too many hours in the car
But if you are just after some family time and beach life, then Grapevines is just what you are looking for. :-)

Liked best: The house was very comfortable and made the stay super easy
Liked least: The front room facing the main road and the kids room being too close to the front door (albeit this was just parents' apprehension as we did not have any safety issue while staying there)
