We stayed at Villa Penelope for ten wonderful days this summer. From the moment Paraskevas met us at the airport we knew this would be a special holiday. The villa is about a twenty minute drive from the airport and when you arrive you will be stunned at how lovely it is. The villa, gardens and pool were immaculate - everything we could possibly need was on hand (including an ice cold beer in the fridge)! Located close to Lourdas, Katelios and Skala there are plenty of stunning beaches nearby. Paraskevas pointed out a number of restaurants and beaches to visit and we managed to see most of them (saving some to ensure we have to return one day). Trips to Myrtos beach and Mellisani cave are a must.
The pool and villa were cleaned frequently during our stay. Fresh towels and bedding were provided on a number of occasions. We even came home to find ice cream in the freezer, for a special treat! Honestly, this was one of the best holidays my family and I have ever had. Opening the balcony door in the main bedroom in the morning and looking out across the sea to Zante was heavenly... I wish I was back there!

“Stunning location, superb facilities”

Our second visit to this property - and again, everything is exactly as per the description - this is a superb villa in a stunning location. The property was beautifully prepared, clean and comfortable, with a selection of local produce in the fridge. The owner lives close by and was very welcoming. He knows the island very well and was happy to make suggestions and recommendations about things to see and do.
There is a range of restaurants (especially "Lorraine's") and a blue flag beach in Lourdata, which is only a few km away. Skala is about 15 mins away by car or taxi and has a good range of places to eat - definitely try "Il Destino" on the main square.
Whilst a car is probably essential to get the most out of the stay, taxis are plentiful and charge reasonable rates.
No hesitation in recommending this villa, which is equally suited for family holidays, for quiet get-aways, for romantic breaks and for honeymoons!
Very happy with the overall experience, and will almost certainly return again at some future point.

“Excellent holiday!”
Reviewed 19 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Stayed at the villa recently and had a great time. Cannot fault anything. The villa is well equipped, the location is excellent, the views are magnificent and Paraskevas and his family provided a first class service. Will definitely go there again.
