1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

As a family with 9 & 8 yrs old our highlights vary - top of the list is watching the baby turtles hatch on the beach - but we are divided about the sunrise wake up call to get there! The pool was an absolute godsend - on hot days we were able to just relax and read while the children kept busy. Toasting marshmallows at the top of Chimaera - fire mountain - was another highlight - and great fun. We could create a long list.... it was an amazing two weeks for us all. Staff couldn't do enough for us at Arcadia Villas - and it very quickly felt like home from home - if not an even quieter, happier home!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Everything you could want is there. We didn't hire a car as it took just 10 mins to walk into the village for shopping/meals etc and a car was sent to collect us from the airport. Everything we needed was in walking distance. Take torches and sturdy shoes for chimaera ..... the villas provide a self catering breakfast for your first morning at 10 euros each - should you arrive late at night. We arrived at 10pm but the taxi driver called ahead and asked a restaurant to stay open for us until we arrived at 11.30pm! Supermarkets were open at that time - so you could do a quick shop for essentials should you need to. The villas sell wonderful fresh eggs and water in huge 5lt bottles ....but we never found any fresh meat or fish to buy to cook at home. Not much of an issue as the restaurants are a plenty and lots of choice and extremely reasonable.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Without question....

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

We are divided equally between 4 and 5 stars! It was a truly wonderful vacation - incredibly relaxing, so friendly, welcoming to us all, beautiful surroundings, still unspoilt - but maybe not for long - off the beaten track enough to be away from the crowds but still have everything we could want - including the chance to buy a large inflatable whale for the pool! Without a doubt - we would recommend this vacation...... it was a perfect relaxing and exciting family vacation!

Breakfast with a view of orange trees and the gentle clucking of the chickens.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Prepare to relax. Don't go looking for nightlife and you will have a fantastic time.

The owners and staff are all local. All food waste is recycled and the beautiful wooden villas keep cool reducing the need for air conditioning. Once there everything is within walking distance.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

A fantastic family vacation, relaxed and fun. I could not recommend highly enough and hope we get a chance to return in the future. If not the best vacation ever very very close.
