Villa Irida is without doubt the best private villa myself and my family have stayed in. The decor, layout and levels of cleanliness are superb. Mihalis and his family were so helpful and were only ever a phone call or text away if ever there was the tiniest question.
They met us when we arrived, took time to show us round and how everything worked - you can sense a real pride in the property - no expense has been spared.
The views from the pool are stunning and there is no real need to leave the villa however if you do then the village of Koutoulafari is only a 10-12 minute walk and has amazing bars and restaurants, typically Greek and superbly hospitable. Further on is Hersonissos Old Town and again perfectly charming.
A walk down the hill will take you to Theodora's Garden and Yanis the waiter looked after us all week.
We will definitely be booking our return next year - absolutely loved it
