Hi Irene!!! So very sorry about not replying sooner! It was always my intention to email you as soon as we got home but unfortunately life has got in the way a bit!! Villa Aurora was absolutely amazing!!! I have to say it was thee best holiday my husband and I have been on in the 11 years we have been together! Words can barely describe it but I will do my best. As you may remember we travelled from Larnaca as we could get better flights. Although this was a bit of a pain after a 4ish hour flight it wasn’t the end of the world and it did mean we could get to the villa without loosing a whole day. When we finally found it and pulled up outside I was completely gobsmacked and sooo excited – I couldn’t believe this place was all ours for a whole week!! Mr Michael (who was lovely) greeted us and showed us round and discreetly left us to enjoy ourselves. We really appreciated the hamper as we didn’t know where anything was and being a Sunday could only assume not everywhere would be open. It meant we could cook a few fried egg sarnies, pop open the wine and beer and go for a swim!! Perfect!! The Villa itself was more than we could have expected – large immaculate rooms and bathrooms with plenty of storage, English sockets (bonus!), massive beds and amazingly cool considering it was 40 degrees outside. The pool was perfect – chairs to lounge on, sun parasols to hide under (I’m a red head so have to be careful!) and best of all, lizards as friends!! We had 3 favourites that we named Boo (as he just kept popping up in the fence behind us), Brad (as he looked a little dopey in a surfer sort of way), and Splash as I had to rescue him from the pool – literally scoop him out by hand! I love lizards so I was mortified one might drown but relieved he was ok! We even had 3 house geckos who accompanied us when we had dinner!! Now the view! Wow!! I found my favourite spot to have my breakfast was on the top of the stone steps as you walk down to the pool. The morning breeze would whoosh thru gently while I sat in awe of the mountains and hills opposite! As a photographer at heart I could barely drag my eyes away and I took many, many photos (many of lizards!). So when we did drag ourselves away from the villa we went to the baths of Aphrodite, Lancia, and the supermarket in Polis and also had a few evenings there (Polis, not the supermarket) – Mr Mousaka’s was the best by far – Barry is still raving about his meal there and he is still laughing at my face after drinking a neat Ouzo!! But we soon found ourselves back at the villa watching the amazing sunsets on the veranda, drinking wine and beer!! We have never felt so relaxed – a perfect couples retreat from the stresses of the rat race - it was easy to forget the world outside!! We only saw people when we went out in the car! I could honestly say I could rave on about this amazing place all year – a true paradise! We would definitely come back! Everyone is soooo friendly, the weather was faultless and the whole experience one to remember forever! I can't thank you enough for showing us this Villa and I’m so pleased we dropped everything to go in 48 hrs! and to top it all off we got it for the same price as we went to Minorca in a Hotel the year before! Seems ridiculous now when we could have been in a Villa like Aurora!! I would love to book thru you again too as you made it like booking thru a friend! It's been lovely writing this feedback sat at work (don’t tell my boss!) while it's raining outside as it made me smile remembering the fabulous week we spent at Villa Aurora! I will follow this message with a few photos I took to help share our experience. (In case you want them for customer feedback on the web.) Please by all means can you keep us in the loop of any special couple’s rates you have on your villas as we would be very interested in them!! Thanks again for all your help, advice and support!! Suzi and Barry Dorr. Note from Irene. I always have couples rates, and extra special rates on certain villas, just ask.
Hi Irene You should see our feedback on trip advisor soon. Eleni at Sa Buneri sends her love, she made us very welcome and we had drinks there one evening and a great meze there one lunchtime. Dropped in for coffee and cake on the way home, at her invitation and she had baked an olive and fruit cake - strange combination. What a lovely lady. We also ate at the taverna in Simou - The Pomegranate - (written in Greek, looks like "Rodia") to the right as you come up into the square. A really nice couple now run it and are desperate for tourists. We ended up strolling up to it in the evenings for a glass or two of Keo and ate there several times. 15 course meze for 10 euros!!! Antonia, who runs it with her husband speaks English very well and has taught us some Greek. If you feel you can it would be good if you could give her a boost by listing her in your restaurant list etc. The local elders drink there as well so there is a lot of "local colour". We even got them to acknowledge us and smile by the end of the week! A delightful place and Michalis and his wife made us very welcome. They left us home made olives and jam as well as a pomodoro (I think that is how you spell it) a sort of enormous grapefruit. They also left us loads of wedding cakes ( pastry boules with nuts in the middle coated with icing sugar) apparently their son got married a couple of weeks ago. Just a joy to stay there from start to finish. For us the location was perfect. Cy breeze were very efficient and the suzuki jeep was great fun to drive. We liked it so much we came home and bought one! We had a great holiday at Villa Aurora and have some lovely memories now. We will be in contact again when we want another villa there. All good wishes Maggie & Dave
We stayed for ten days in April and had good weather - up to 29 degrees one day - though the wind was sometimes a bit chilly. In that time I lost count of the number of times I tried to capture the view from the villa across the valley and each time it just never lived up to the peaceful ever-changing vista we had in front of us. It was a fantastic relaxing break at Villa Aurora where the only interruption was the finches squabbling noisily in the bushes by the veranda. The house is great with every thing you need and a good BBQ out the back. If we had been there longer I would have tried the wood-fired Kleftico oven. A large American-style fridge keeps your salads beer and wine lovely and cold. I am determined to come back here and would recommend it without reservation.
