Abbiamo trascorso una settimana davvero speciale .anche il piccolo villaggio di douliana con i suoi abitanti ,la taverna ,le cen a casa,insomma siamo stati veramente bene. Abbiamo avuto anche un problema con la macchina a noleggio e ' l'aiuto dei nostri vicini / custodi e stato prezioso.li ricordo con affetto per la loro gentilezza. Sono una viaggiatrice di lunga data quindi i complimenti sono sinceri .... Bravi bravi bravi! Spero di tornare una settimana e stato un periodo troppo breve!
Unser Urlaub in Villa Eleni war perfekt. Der Kontakt zur Vermieterin war von Anfang an herzlich und unkompliziert. Bei unserer Ankunft und Abfahrt wurde auf unsere Wünsche großzügig eingegangen. Die Lage des Hauses garantiert ganz viel Privatsphäre, der Garten ist wunderbar gepflegt und mit vielen Blumen, Bäumen und Büschen ein richtiges Paradies. Es gibt mehrere Tische, Stühle und Liegen, so kann man jederzeit einen passenden Platz zum essen oder entspannen finden. Die ganze Ausstattung des Hauses ist hochwertig, es hat nichts gefehlt. Die Zentralheizung, die wir an manchen Abenden gebraucht haben, erwärmt die Räume schnell. Besonders gemütlich fanden wir den offenen Kamin. Auch die Bäder und die Schlafzimmer bieten einen hohen Komfort, im Gegensatz zu manch anderem Urlaubaufenthalt sind die Matrazen in einem sehr guten Zustand. Unsere einzigen Nachbarn waren der Housemanager und seine Frau. Sie sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Douliana ist ein winziges Dorf in einer wunderschönen Landschaft. Man kann hier durch bunte Blumenwiesen wandern oder auch kurz an den Strand fahren. Andere Wanderziele sind schnell mit dem Auto erreichbar. Die Taverne im Dorf ist nett eingerichtet, das Essen gut und man wird sehr freundlich bedient. Wir werden dieses Haus auf jeden Fall unseren Freunden empfehlen und hoffen, dass wir bald wieder Urlaub in Villa Eleni verbringen dürfen. Regina My Response
The villa is beautiful & well equipped. It is also well serviced. The maid and gardener turn up when they are supposed-to, and do a really thorough job. We had one issue & the property manager answered the phone straight away & came round within the hour to sort everything out. All are nice friendly people. The pool is a good size & depth, & there is enough space to position loungers for sun or shade as you wish at any time of day. It is still just possible to see the sea from the edge of the infinity pool, but the trees growing down-slope have obscured the view a little compared to the picture-postcard - a pity. The pool is screened by lovely shrubs & trees providing a good degree of privacy. There is a lot of space outside, with the pool area, veranda & roof-terrace, so its easy to either be sociable or get a bit of quiet-time as you wish. The village seems to have been badly hit by the recession. Of the two taverna's in the village one was closed throughout our fortnight there. Messages on a blackboard often announced it's re-opening, but it didn't happen. The other one, on the opposite side of the village to the villa, was fine with good food at reasonable prices and friendly staff. The village has clearly been extended in recent years, but most of the properties in the new area were empty when we were there, giving it a 'ghost-town' feel. Not necessarily unpleasant, but 'vibrant' it isn't. Similarly, the only shop in the place, in the 'Natalia's Houses' complex, was mostly shut, and when we did catch it open it had a very limited selection. However the lady there was extremely nice and helpful. You're going to need a car to bring supplies back from Kalyves, which has enough shops & taverna's to supply anything a holidaymaker is likely to want, and the drive there & back isn't too bad once you've got used to the two hairpin bends. One tip: don't drive through Kalyves itself. The streets are narrow & busy. Instead when you get to the T-junction with the main coastal road head through a gap in the wall opposite onto a rough beachside car-park & walk from there. Kalyves is small enough to get around on foot. On cars, be careful how long it is. We had a Volvo S60 and it was a pain to get in and out of the gates. Shorter = better! Finally, I come to Oliver the resident cat. He's old but a real charmer, and kept well fed he keeps the many other cats away. A win-win for him and us. We'd definitely like to come again some day.
