If your looking for a 5 star resort with all the trimmings, then don't stay here. But if like me your looking for simple Greek hospitality in an amazing location with the most amazing views then this is for you. The apartments are basic but clean and very spacious, clean linen was provided every other day and there was piping hot water morning and night. The veranda wrapped itself right round the apartment so i was never without a spot in the sun, and i had the most wonderful sea views.
The owners and their son were a complete delight always happy to advise me on places to go and makingy stay that extra bit special. There is a small restaurant and bar at the hotel and the breakfast is excellent, fresh rolls, preserves, ham, cheese, Greek yogurt with fruit and honey all rounded off with a lovely cup of fresh coffee.
I had a the most delicious home cooked Mousakka one evening which was was washed down with a nice glass of wine.
Your own transport is a necessity at this hotel due to It's location, it stands on a hill above the main resort and the track from the main road leading to the hotel is quite a distance. I chose to hire a scooter as I was on my own which was perfect, however the hotel can arrange hire cars for you which is very convenient. The hotel has the most wonderful pool which is large and has the fantastic views and is cleaned every day. When I was there in September I had the pool to myself every afternoon, unlike many resorts where I've been fighting to get a sunlounger! From the pool there are steps leading to the road which takes you to one of the several beaches, it is steep but worth the effort. The main resort Is a 5 min drive away and has all the bars, shops, taverns and amenities you could wish for.
If your looking for a quiet relaxing holiday away from the hassle and bussle of the main resort then Villa Belle Vue is perfect, I found I was able to completely unwind and relax in warm friendly surroundings, so much so I have booked 2 holidays there next year, I've found my little piece of heaven and I'm sticking to it!
