Lazy Acre is an impressive private villa set in an acre-wide olive grove on the edge of Agios Ioannis. And because it's surrounded by flowers and fruit trees, it's very private – perfect for long, lazy afternoons in the sun. So you get a great sense of seclusion but you've also got a handful of tavernas and shops close by. In fact, from the back the house it looks more like a small Roman mansion than a holiday home. But somehow it's still homely and extremely comfortable. The British owners insist on high levels on cleanliness and equipment to ensure a "home away from home" experience. All bedrooms have a balcony of their own and a large terrace for BBQs. from the living room there is a large pool facing balcony which is perfect for dining outside or sundowner drinks after a hard day at the beach.
There is a living room with UK TV available a shared bathroom a separate WC and a kitchen.
We have an english cleaner who lives nearby who is on hand to sort out any special requests you may have while your staying with us.
