Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.

Super villa in quiet location, great pool and lovely views overlooking Sami valley.
In summary this is a super villa in quiet location, great pool and lovely views overlooking Sami valley. Thank you to Sophia and her support team for a great stay. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. We had a wonderful week at the Utopia Villa, six of us (all adults) had plenty of room to enjoy all the Villa had to offer. Clean throughout, 3 lovely big bedrooms with plenty of wardrobe and drawer space. Air conditioning in all bedrooms when needed. Smart and very clean bath/shower rooms. Kitchen had all you need for the self catering side of things, and outside there was an outdoor kitchen with BBQ, Pizza Oven and sink. For coffee lovers there was both a filter and a capsule coffee machine. Lounge area had a relaxing chaise sofa which was nice to relax on under the air conditioning unit when it got a bit too hot outside. I personally think the villa needed another small sofa or maybe a couple of bean bag seats to comfortably sit six round the coffee table for the odd game of cards or similar, but we simply brought in a chair or two from outside. It did not detract from the wonderful time we had. The internal and external dining tables comfortably sat 6 people. The outdoor one had an umbrella to provide some shade. The swimming pool was large enough for a simple swim , certainly not just a plunge pool, it also had the added enjoyment of a jacuzzi corner to help relax for a few minutes. Pool area had plenty of sun beds, chairs and large cushions to allow all sunbathing positions! A couple of umbrellas gave shade when needed. Note that the pool is quite deep and certainly not safe for unattended young children. I do think the owner should consider a couple of lockable (to kids) gates to help prevent children wandering into the pool area. The gym was very well kitted out, my daughter used it every day and loved it. Put mine to shame here at home. Also as there was a shower in the gym area that was very useful. As stated in the summary the villa is in a quiet location, but in my opinion just a little too far and uphill from either Sami and Karavomylos villages to comfortably walk both ways on a regular basis. We did walk to the Melisanni Cave Lake (which was beautiful) via Karavomylos, then along the shoreline for a drink at Sami Lake then onto Sami for lunch before walking back up the road to the villa. Around 6 miles total but it was very hard work walking up the hill to the villa. Therefore I would recommend a car, or other vehicle. The walk down is fine, it’s just the walk back up the hill in the heat is quite hard. There is a Taxi’s rank in Sami, although we did not use them so I cannot comment on availability, only that there did always seem to be at least one in the rank. As for activities, Sami has a small beach, but it is worth the trip at Antisamos where there are free sun loungers and umbrella’s if you spend more than 20 Euro’s, service and food is very nice though so well worth it. We obviously did the Melisanna cave which at 8 Euro’s is good value. We did a boat trip round half of Ithaca to Vathy for 40 Euro’s which included both outbound and return swim stops at small beaches. Note that you do have to swim to shore for the beach stops. Lovely experience. We took a drive to Fiskardo which has an amazing road to/from along steep sided roads with fantastic views. Plenty of restaurants there for lunch or a drink. I hired a MTB bicycle from Sami trekking at 10 euro’s a day and managed to get out most days for a more close up look at the area. There are some big hills but early on in the morning it’s just cool enough to enjoy the exercise.

Amazing place to stay, beautiful villa in a stunning setting!
We are a family of 4 - Mum, dad, son aged 19 and daughter aged 13 - and we were all blown away with this lovely villa and it’s wonderful setting. We spent 2 weeks here starting 28 July, waking every morning to blue skies and the most gorgeous mountain and sea views and the sound of goat bells. We spent lots of time in the large pool, necessary to cool off in the heat! We’ve stayed in many villas over the years and this was certainly the most private and we all felt very safe and secure here. A car is essential, due to the villa’s ‘away from it all’ location. The villa was exceptionally clean with high quality linen and towels, including pool towels. There is air conditioning throughout. We used the BBQ and the pizza oven - Sofia provided the wood for us on request. Sofia was very helpful and even came to find us when we got lost on the way to the villa (and we were using sat nav!!). In our opinion the only things missing were a few kitchen utensils/essentials such as scissors, scales (we attempted our own pizza dough!), salt, pepper etc - if you like to cook. We highly recommend this villa and hope to return some time.

Relax
What a relaxing 10 day holiday!! We had the best time. We hired a car (definitely needed). Views were amazing! Wasps were a pain! Villa had everything you needed. Few things missing -cool box/ ice packs for the beach, salt and pepper, just a few essentials that you didn’t want to have to buy. Nothing that spoilt our holiday. About 5 minutes drive from Sami, 30 minutes walk, but in the heat of the day it’s quite hard. Antisamos beach - Ok Agia Pareskevi beach is very good. About 10 minutes drive. Definitely recommend and would love to go back x

A little drop of heaven
We just returned from the most beautiful week at Villa Utopia. We were 6 adults and a baby and the villa was absolutely perfect. The views and the beautifully kept gardens need to be seen to be believed and the outdoor bbq and pizza oven were fantastic. Sofia made us feel very welcome and was a text away with anything we needed. While we were there we spent a few lovely mornings in Agia Efimia (we nicknamed it Greek Padstow) enjoying coffee and pastries at the harbour. Sami had many restaurants and shops on the waterfront and Antisamos beach is one of my favourites in Greece and only 10mins drive. We don't often return to the same place but I have a feeling we will be back here again as it was such a magical place and will be hard to beat.

Tranquility with stunning views
If you're looking for peace and relaxation in luxury accommodation it's here. From the moment you drive through the electric gates you're greeted with the most stunning views that have to be seen to be appreciated. The villa is excellently furnished and maintained both inside and out. Sofia is just a text message away if any help is needed, but has the perfect skill of being both helpful yet respectful of your privacy. The villa is located close to Sami, Agia Efimia and Antisamos Beach. A car is clearly essential but everything you could want is within a very short drive. However, you may never want to leave the generously sized pool where you can swim while watching the boats sail in and out of Sami harbour. We would recommend unreservedly.

Perfect for some rest and relaxation
We stayed for a week in the villa and had a really relaxing break. The kids loved the pool and the adults enjoyed the outdoor kitchen. The owners were helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. The villa had everything you could want and the views over the valley were beautiful. We are already planning on coming back next year!

Prachtig gelegen en zeer luxe, complete villa
Utopia Luxury Villa is zeer mooi en rustig gelegen en heeft een schitterend uitzicht op de bergen, het plaatsje Sami en daarachter de Ionische zee. De plaatsjes Sami, Karavomilos en Agia Efymia zijn de door de gunstige ligging makkelijk te bereiken dus keuze genoeg qua winkeltjes, tavernes enz. Ook highlights als Myrtos beach, de hoofdstad Argostoli en de Melanissi Cave zijn allemaal binnen een half uur te bereiken. Bij aankomst bij de villa stond Sofia (de eigenaresse) op ons te wachten. Ze nam uitgebreid de tijd om ons rond te leiden door de villa en alles uit te leggen. Ook lag er een welkomstpresentje klaar met wijn, vruchten en nog veel meer. De voorzieningen zijn uitstekend: • Flatscreen TV (mocht het een keer slecht weer zijn) ;) • Drie slaapkamers met airconditioning • Twee badkamers met toilet & een extra toilet op de benedenverdieping • Zwembad met hydromassage • Barbecueplaats met pizzaoven • Twee van de drie slaapkamers zijn voorzien van electronisch bedienbare rolluiken • De keuken is ruim en tevens voorzien van een XL koelkast & afwasmachine De service was verder uitstekend. Sofia woont in de buurt van de villa dus mocht er onverhoopt iets aan de hand zijn dan is ze altijd bereikbaar en in de buurt. Al met al hebben wij, mede dankzij de gastvrijheid van Sofia en haar familie, een onvergetelijke vakantie gehad in Utopia Luxury Villa. Een echte aanrader!!!!

Idyllic, perfect, dream villa!
We have had the most wonderful holiday thanks to Sofia and her family for allowing us to stay at Utopia villa. It is beautiful! with the most amazing views. Waking up to the views was paradise and coming back for a family swim was the best part of the day. We toured the island seeing Skala, Fiskardo, Assos and the turtles at the harbour in Argostoli. But we didn't need to go far as Sami and Agia Efmia were perfect places offering everything you need on holiday with wonderful beaches and tavernas. A truly relaxing holiday in a stunning private villa. We hope we can go back again soon.

Fantastic Villa, wonderful location and friendly owners
We have just returned from a 2 week holiday in Villa Utopia. The villa is ideally situated about 2 km out of the centre of Sami on a hillside within beautiful olive groves. It was spotlessly clean with cleaners coming in three times during our stay to change bedding and clean the whole villa. It had 3 bedrooms and was ideal for our family with teenagers, parents and grandparents all together. The lack of neighbours meant we could be as quiet or as noisy as we wished. The pool was beautiful and clean with spectacular views across the headland - we did venture out to explore the island but hardly needed to. Sami itself had lots of good reasonably priced shops and restaurants for food. The barbeque area was wonderful and meant we ate in a lot with local produce from the village. The pizza oven was something we really had fun using and made fabulous pizzas with yeast from the local bakery which also provided us with fantastic bread and cakes. Sophia and her family who owned the villa were incredibly welcoming and accommodating and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.

Outstanding in every way, the perfect holiday!
We stayed at the villa Utopia for two weeks, five of us, myself, husband and our three offspring (21, 18 and 8). It met the criteria for all of us and our varying needs! The views are breathtaking, the villa, wonderful contemporary living and the pool a good generous size, with the spa as an extra bonus! Sami was a wonderful place to spend time, with a great harbour, restaurants and shops. A good location to see the rest of the island too. The local beach, Anti Samos was our favourite, good for all ages and a beautiful bay. Sophia and her family looked after us perfectly and the locals are very friendly. The villa also has a great BBQ area if you fancy eating in, which we also did, as there are good butchers in Sami. I cannot recommend the Villa highly enough for its location, cleanliness, attention to detail and home from home living, we will be back!!
