Absolutely perfect! We stayed in the villa for 5 nights and we loved our experience! Alexandra was incredibly helpful in everything! She coordinated transportation for us on the island (we used ATVs), she helped us plan activities like hiking and a catamaran boat tour of the island, and she was available when we/if we ever needed her. The villa is blissful! It is private and quiet but still easily accessible to do activities! The house was clean and comfortable. The village of emporio is about 5 minutes on ATVs from the beach and about 15 mins on ATVs to Thira. We loved our experience with Alexandra and staying in her villa! It was the highlight of our Greece trip! I would definitely stay here again in a heartbeat and would highly recommend staying here!

This villa and host were incredible!!! The villa has it all, location, pool, it's clean, it has everything!!!! Alexandra is a fabulous host who was always on hand and very informative about the local area. She even owns an ice cream shop locally selling her very own home made gelato which is fantastic! Great for a couple of families alike...would recommend without any hesitation! Thank you Alexandra!

Alexandra is the perfect host she is very helpful and answered our many questions- telling us about good places to eat and where to go- she even took us to the supermarket to get supplies when we first arrived. The villa is lovely well decorated and finished to a high standard. The pool area is fab and a lovely space to relax. Emporio is a normal Greek village, it has a supermarket, bakery and a couple of tavernas the people are very friendly - their is a takeaway which is owned by the sweetest couple it doesn't look open but they are in all day and night and have amazing moussaka. The village is 5 mins drive away from Perrissa beach which has lots of places to eat and drink the bus also goes there and only costs a couple of euros. We also hired a car for a few days which was definitely worth it. We had a lovely time thank you Alexandra x
