Luxury Greek Island vacation
A wonderful vacation which far exceeded our expectations. (more)Susan Purnell
The location of the accommodation, our home for the next few weeks was simply stunning. The gardens lovingly tended to by the owners Marilyn and Spero, provide a perfect relaxing haven to unwind. The entrance to our cottage was awash with wisteria and the fragrance of white jasmine filled the air. Spotting a Pine Martin one evening was really exciting for all of us! The place is awash with all kinds of wildlife, green lizards, giant centipedes, and birdlife galore. A very exciting playground for... (more)Alison Brookes Day

The most memorable part was the very warm welcome at the villa and their attitude that nothing is too much trouble. Edith and her family have created a very special place to stay which worked for our family group ranging in age from 18 to 60! (more)Katie Lee
The beautiful surroundings and wonderful hospitality on Ischia were most memorable, and a trip to pompei for a walking tour is a must. (more)Samantha Howson

Some of the most memorable parts of the vacation were: finding eggs in the hen house, lying in the bath at Fisherman's Cottage watching the sea, wine tasting at La Cantina, Teguise & at El Grifo Bodega and driving on the fabulous, twisty, unique scenic roads. (more)Georgina Tongue
The setting and accommodation, plus the very warm and helpful owners and staff. The events organised were great, paella night with live jazz and sangria, also the island trip to La Grocia was very memorable!!! (more)Chris Parr
From €665 - €910 per couple per week
Limassol self catering accommodation in Cyprus
Memorable parts? The tranquil position of our accommodation at Kontoyiannas House in Kalavasos. Set within a pleasant & friendly village in the valley and only minutes drive from one of the loveliest beaches we discovered in Cyprus. Tips? To make the most of the self-catering accommodation including the bbq since the variety of menus in the island's taverns & restaurants is generally very limited. Kontoyiannas House would also be great to rent for a group of families - using all... (more)Nicole Mouton
