Amazing place to stay, Vasilikos is very quiet and peaceful about 30min drive from the airport, but there are lots of great restaurants (Di Camillo a 5 min walk away will do the best pasta/pizza outside of Rome!) and supermarkets / bars etc. very close by to the house. The beach (Gerakas) is a 20-30 min walk away but only 3-5mins by car and it's stunning, quiet and beautiful. There is a great bar and restaurant just next door and wonderful sealife centre too. After driving round the island for 2 weeks I would recommend Vasilikos to anyone hoping for a relaxing, peaceful break in the sunshine.
The house is in a gated area made up of 3 separate accommodation houses and 1 house for the hosts, with a lovely pool cleaned every single day. lots of sun-beds with cushions and umbrellas. The house has recently been refurbished with a beautiful bathroom (shower only - no need of a bath when it's so hot!) and brand new fridge. The oven works well if you want to stay in and cook - and you can eat on the lovely veranda overlooking the pool but still feel private thanks to the beautiful flowering trees all around. There is a air-conditioning unit on the wall in the house too which is powerful and keeps the house cool.
There are 2 lovely bedrooms (one double bed, one with 2 singles), one very dark in the morning and one a big lighter. Make sure to bring mosquito repellent as there are lots buzzing around as you're near the countryside. My boyfriend has epilepsy and requires a very dark, quiet room to sleep and he slept perfectly - a very restful place which we always look for but rarely find! The only noise was very loud roosters and dogs but with the windows shut and air conditioning on at night, it was no problem.
Our hosts were so very helpful, offering a map, advice, lots of conversation and tips about the area. They couldn't do enough for us, even providing mosquito cream after I was bitten! The whole space is just beautiful, with lots of space to park a car at no extra charge too.
HIGHLY recommended - we will be coming back!! *****
