Very well equipped and spacious villa. Great location for visiting local area, fab beaches and Ares is a lovely town. We very much enjoyed our stay. Plenty to do, super restaurants and the villa has a lovely outside eating area as well as a large dining table inside.

Dear Alison and party, thank you so much for being such lovely guests! We were at a low ebb about the pool saga and were so delighted you wanted to stay in the house anyway and that you had a good time. Thank you too for your review. We shall let you know when the new pool is up and running in case you feel like coming back again. We hope that you enjoy the rest of the summer. Best wishes Diana and Patrice

Great stay in Patrice and Diana's beautiful house. We spent a family week in August, 3 couples and 2 kids. There was plenty of space for all of us with 3 private en-suite bathroom and a very large kitchen right on the terrace. Despite the heat wave, the house stayed very cool. The outside space/living room below the pergola with the great table is ideal for chilling out at anytime of the day and is extremely cosy and friendly in the evening with a very handy plancha. The girls loved swimming into the pool. Things that can be improved for the future is the storage room with perhaps more hangers and the garden area around the pool. Great location, everything is easily accessible and this is a great area to cycle. Thank you for this great stay with a very strong holiday feel ! We would definitely recommend!

Myself and 7 friends had an amazing time at this house. We spent a lot of time relaxing by the pool and cooking meals in the kitchen (which is lovely). The outside decking is perfect with a large dining table and comfy chairs for relaxing in the evening. It is a short walk to the bus stop, town, and some restaurants in the harbour. We walked about 15 minutes to hire bikes and cycled to the west coast beach. The supermarket is walking distance. The hosts were very helpful. We had some trouble when we arrived (which was our fault not theirs) and they were very quick to respond to our messages and help. They were very helpful throughout the booking process.

Nous avons apprécié l'espace dans la maison ainsi que sa terrasse. Dommage que le jardin ne soit pas mieux entretenu et que nous n'ayons pas été prévenu que l'accueil se faisait par une agence. Nous avons choisi airbnb pour le contact avec les hôtes et non celui avec une agence.

Ein tolles Haus in unmittelbarer Nähe zum Strand. Wir haben uns mit unseren Hunden sehr wohl gefühlt. Es hat uns an nichts gefehlt und die Übergabe war perfekt. Einziges Manko war die Lautstärke des Austernverkaufs und des Restaurants gegenüber. Aber die war nicht immer und somit war das auch auszuhalten.
