Villa Akanthou meet and exceeded all our expectations, situated in a quiet location this well equiped villa was spotlessly clean and had everything we wanted for our stay. A car is essential if you are going to venture out and explore the area.
The setting is idyllic, looking over open countryside and down to the coast. The swimming pool is a real gem, just for your own use, no one else !
The owners Calvin and Sandra cannot do enough to help and the team that look after the villa when you are there are very helpful and nothing is too much trouble.
We have been many times now and look forward to returning again in the near future
